Rock Band: 360/PS3 – 23 NOV 2007 for $170, PS2 – 10 DEC 2007 for $160

Posted by inpheaux on September 28th, 2007 at 5:05 pm

Well, prices and dates are finally out, and frankly I'm pretty disappointed. Hear me out, OK. Sure, $170 is way better than $200, but there's only one version, they're making you buy a full set of Guitar, Drum Kit and Mic. I have absolutely zero interest in the Drums and Mic. Sorry guys, I just […]

Posted by inpheaux on July 11th, 2007 at 12:59 pm

I like Nintendo Press Conferences because you can generally summarize them pretty easily. Numbers: Shocking news - Reggie loves his charts & graphs and Nintendo is totally dominating everything when it comes to numbers. The DS now makes up a quarter of the console market, and somehow the GBA is refusing to give up its […]

For the past month or so, Nintendo has had a teaser page up at, telling us amazing new things would be coming. It's up finally, but it's just a bit underwhelming compared to the nuclear strike launched by Blizzard over the weekend. The new "Smash Bros. Dojo" features - as rumored - updates every […]

Metapost: WordPress upgraded to 2.2

Posted by inpheaux on May 21st, 2007 at 12:43 pm

You probably don't care about this, but just to keep you all informed, I wanted to announce that I upgraded WordPress - the software that makes DPad Go - last night from some ancient version to 2.2, which was released last week.

Gamespot deploys all-360 advertising for their PS3 subsection

Posted by inpheaux on November 30th, 2006 at 6:59 pm

Sometimes these things just write themselves. Today, Gamespot unveiled a new overbearing gigantic ad-filled version of one of their pages. This is nothing new, and isn't the punchline. Most of us remember the glory that was McIGN, but I feel this goes a step (or seventeen) too far. The page in question was their PS3 […]

Last week, our good friend Jack Thompson was cheering and patting himself on the back when he got a Florida appellate court to force Take Two to give them a copy of Bully to review as part of his hilarious several-month crusade against the game. Well, they did. The Judge watched, and while he wasn't […]
