Harley Quinn’s Revenge

Harley Quinn's Revenge

Fans of Batman: Arkham City should be psyched about the Harley Quinn’s Revenge DLC!  What excites me most about this is that it is not just a DLC outfit, weapon, or level, but an actual story that can be played!

I think that Harley Quinn was one of the most underrated characters of the DC Universe in the past. She was portrayed as the “dumb blonde” sidekick.  There always seemed to be more to her, and now we get to see it!  The Harley Quinn in the trailer below is what I had always envisioned her to be!  I am sure this DLC will be snatched up  by Batman fans, fan girls, pre-pubecent boys and anyone else that enjoys a great character!

What are your thoughts on Harley Quinn?

On a side note, I would like to give props to the Nerdzy site admins for a fantastic job on the site redesign!  It looks great!

Video Game Rock Medley

Unfortunately, I have been pretty busy at work the last couple of days, and was not able to post anything yesterday.  However, While Wasting some time on Facebook, I discovered this little piece of video game awesomeness!  Youtuber Freddie25 posted the below medley of 34 Video game tracks.  His description is below:

“34 tracks from some of the most famous video games in one fluid rock medley! I’m honestly very happy with how this one turned out, and I hope that you will like it too! It doesn’t have vocals and very little acoustic guitar though, so I know that some will be disappointed, but, can’t please everyone!”

The Rock Medley is very well constructed, give it a listen and share your feedback!  And, of course, be sure to give Freddie25 a thumbs up if you like it!

Exclusive Pre-Order Content

Exclusive Pre-Order Content

There used to be a time in which pre-ordering a game was only a dream.  A time when you actually had to stand in line, sometimes for hours, in order to get your hands on a cartridge before it was sold out.  I remember when Ocarina of Time came out in 1998.  I was working in the mall, next to EB Games.  I had to fight my way through the line just to get into my store.  And then, when it was finally open, customers could not even get in because the line was so big.  It actually started a few fights because the Zelda fanboys thought my customers were trying to cut in line.

Today pre-ordering a game is the norm.  What better way to strut past those gamers, that waited until the last minute, while waiving your golden ticket in their faces!  When Pre-ordering started, it definitely stopped the unnecessarily long lines like the one in the example above, but it didn’t stop them completely.  For those that don’t have the game shipped directly to them, they will still wait outside their favorite store at midnight so they can rush home and be the first to play.

In the beginning, everybody got the same game.  It didn’t matter if you went to EB Games or Wal Mart.  Then the developers got smart (or money hungry, not sure which) and began to offer exclusive posters/trinkets/statues with their games.  Many times these special editions costs more, but gave you got something special to display.  Something to prove that you were a true fan!  I liked this idea because, other than the game itself, you had something physical to hold onto and display.

The gaming industry eventually began to offer downloadable content.  At first I was pretty excited that I could now download new uniforms, guns, and in some cases new levels.  It made game play exciting and broke up some of the monotony.  However, the gaming industry realized that they could profit from exclusive downloadable content at the launch of a new game.  If all pre-orders contained the same content, I would be okay with it.  Unfortunately, that content now depends on where you buy the game.  This is why I am not a fan of exclusive content.
