Hideo Kojima And Xbox360

From what I see, “Life” is nothing more than just a replica (ok ok, shameless copy!) of Nintendo Wii’s weather and news channel. In addition, users can also set background music while exploring “Life”. Meh indeed.

Far Cry 2: Demo

Have you guys seen the new 20 minutes long Far Cry 2 demo? I don’t know, seems like every First Person Shooter these days are heading to a lush jungle somewhere. When Crysis did it – everyone just went berserk. Then other FPS game followed. Watching this – it just reminded me of all these Crysis wannabies.
