Red Dead Redemption 2: How Weather Affects Your Horse

If you’re an avid gamer like me then you’re excited about the upcoming Red Dead Redemption 2.  It boasts an enourmous map that covers 5 states.  Lots to do with building your gang and pulling off all sorts of shenanigans in the game.  One thing you didn’t know was going to be a part of the game?  How the weather affects your horse’s nether regions.

That’s right.  If it’s cold then your horse’s scrotum will shrink.  If it’s hot then is expands.  Do we think maybe there is a such thing as too much detail?  Either way I’m excited to check it out when it hits on October 26th.

NBA JAM (XboX 360)

I recently been playing a lot of NBA JAM for the XboX 360 and it’s bringing me back to the days when I played it on the SEGA Genesis. The 360 version plays as NBA JAM: Tournament Edition, but with updated graphics, audio, and a few added punch-blocks to steal the ball. It’s 100% nostalgia!

The game is a bit faster than what I remember. I haven’t looked at the options to turn down the speed or difficulty, but winning six games out of ten isn’t bad for a plug in play.

I recommend NBA JAM for the 360 if you just wanna have a good time playing a fast paced basketball game and 90’s nostalgia! Now to find a copy of NFL: Blitz.

Review: Garfield Kart (Nintendo 3DS)

I was hoping this game was going to be a Mario Kart clone, well it kinda is because of the racing and all but other than that Garfield Kart is a bad game in general. The controls are loose and clunky and needed to be tighten up. There are only sixteen tracks and they all are about the same. On the plus side you do have a cast of characters from the Garfield universe like Jon, Liz, Arlene and even Pooky. 

The music in the game is repetitive and gets old fast and the power ups don’t work half the time because if you don’t read the digital manual you won’t know what they do. For example, lasagna will make you go faster and a spring will make you jump a few feet ahead.

I dropped thirty bones on this game and after three hours of game play I have beaten every challenge and there isn’t any online multiplayer to keep me coming back. Don’t even bother dropping cash on Garfield Kart, get Mario Kart instead.
