9) God of War 2 (PS2) - epic in scale, utterly exhilerating to play, the perfect demonstration that you don't need a fancy gimmick controller to make a game's controls immersive. Probably the best looking game that will ever hit the PS2.


I stopped reading as soon as your silly bias against the Wii reared its head. I probably don't even really disagree with your list, but it's hard to take you seriously when the fanboyism is so blatantly obvious.

Submission + - Nintendo announces some Megatons 2

DeanCubed writes: "Nintendo has just made some major announcements this morning!

First of all, Sonic the Hedgehog is now in Smash Bros. In addition, they have unveiled the WiiWare service which allows Wii owners to purchase and download original games from various developers. Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles and an online multiplayer Dr. Mario headline the launch of the service.

Two new Channels have also been announced — one to compare and vote on Mii creations, and a demo/minigame download channel for the DS. Next, motorbikes have been added to Mario Kart.

Mario Baseball for Wii was announced.

The latest firmware update has enabled full USB keyboard support for the Wii, and Logitech has announced a Wii keyboard. Finally, one of the huge upcoming blockbusters in Japan, Monster Hunter 3 from Capcom, has been changed from PS3 exclusive to now appearing on Wii.

Submission + - Apple is more of a control freak than Microsoft (networkworld.com)

Anonymous Coward writes: "While still on the fringe, Apple is continually gaining ground in the corporate environment. Recent studies have shown that universities, too, are seeing a surge in OS X usage — some of which will soon translate into enterprise demand as those graduates enter the work force. While many users laud Apple for the freedom that it gives them, recent developments indicate that Apple might be even more of a "control freak" than Microsoft. http://www.networkworld.com/columnists/2007/101007tolly.html"

Submission + - Wii System Update Adds USB Keyboard Support

Kemanorel writes: I woke up this morning to a pulsing blue light from the disc slot of my Wii. Upon turning it on and checking through the 3 messages from Nintendo, I found that there is a new system update that adds USB keyboard support across several portions of the console. The Wii Menu/Message Board and Internet Channel are the first to see instant use of the keyboard. Now it's up to games to include support as well.

For something that should have been there from the beginning though, it's about time.
