The "Days of Arcade" promotion is starting March 18. On March 18, they're launching Hasbro Family Game Night - seven separate games at 800 points apiece: Scrabble, Yahtzee, Boggle, Battleship, Connect Four, Sorry!, and Sorry! Sliders. I'll gladly pay the $10 per shot for Scrabble, Boggle, and (oddly) Yahtzee. The rest can go screw.
Over the five weeks that follow, they'll be releasing: - UNO Rush (OMG) - Puzzle Quest: Galactrix (I'll buy this version if it doesn't suck) - Lode Runner (tempting...) - The Dishwasher: Dead Samurai - Flock - Outrun Online Arcade
I was at GameStop at midnite for the selling of Resident Evil 5. The scene was surreal. There were about 30 people in line and everyone there came made up as a flesh eating zombie. And they looked good !!!! All looked like they stepped right off of a George Romero movie set with their great make-up jobs and bloodied, torn up clothing.
Only myself and one other guy were the only ones there that came as our regular selves.
When everyone got their games, a bunch of the "zombies" went over to the Walmart next door and started chasing people around the parking lot. It must have been quite the site if you pulled into Walmart not knowing what the hell was going on.
The best part of waking up is not Folgers in your cup, but knowing that Chuck Norris didn't kill you in your sleep.
Another semi-related question: are games getting worse or are we (or maybe just me) getting more demanding and more picky? I remember back to my childhood when I'd have a stack of a dozen or so Genesis games sitting underneath my TV.
