We had 86 entries in the new lottery system that I built. Plus we had 3 video entries which are always fun to see what you come up with. There is a new method for picking winners at random! Check it out in action here! Congrats to Darklurkr23 (Lottery Ticket), Cheeto (Video Entry) & The_Nmac (Google+ Entry). Keep earning those points, we have more giveaways coming!
Payday: The Heist is a very unusual game, placed in a market practically dominated by platformers. The PSN is home to few downloadable, exclusive first person shooters. To be honest, this is the first game of the genre I’ve seen there, but there must be another one. Most aspects of the game might raise similar questions, which eventually made me feel in doubt too. It certainly has aspects that are interesting and fun, on the other hand, some of them are lacking in quality and functionality.
Conceptually the game intends to put players behind different heists, all well worthy of a movie script… in theory. I was expecting some interesting game mechanics that would allow me to approach situations differently, or at least in a smart manner, but most of the time you’re just shooting your way through a bunch of cops and security personal to get where you want to go. You might not think this is a big problem, after all, the game is a shooter, but so is Deus Ex: Human Revolution. I’m not comparing both, but I have high expectations and standards, so sue me if you must.
It’s that time of the week again, and we’re here to help push you through the last few work days left! Tune in and catch Ace, Tosh, and I inform you about upcoming games and discuss all the things we’ve been playing.
There are a ton of giveaways going on the site at the moment, so be sure to listen in to find out what the secret word(s) is/are that way you can get some extra points towards winning more stuff! Also being a guest on the podcast nets you points as well, so don’t be afraid to contact me if you’re interested!

Here’s a list of some things (or everything) we discussed:
The Marbians have crash landed in Roswell, New Mexico and need your help to get them home in this retro, marble-themed puzzle game. Fling and Flick the marble-encased aliens through 72 puzzling levels to get them back to their UFOs and on their way home!
The Marbians is a physics-based interactive game, where players will send Marbians careening off walls and around obstacles to collect moon rocks, rack up points and bonuses, and reach their UFO homes. Smack your Marbian off walls at high speed for more points, collect all the moon rocks you can, and see your alien friends safely home!
