Weekend Note: Not QQ Edition

Another awesome week over at Nightmare Mode headquarters goes by. Tomorrow will mark our one month anniversary. Since then, we’ve posted 72 articles, and have mostly kept to our promise to deliver at least one piece of content every day.

We’ve watched our readership go up slowly, and if the last crunched numbers are to be believed, then our readership has suddenly exploded over the last couple of days. Needless to say, we’re going to try our best to keep it up…this ain’t no honeymoon period, ya hear?

Anyway, gaming related stuff:

I’ve been trucking along in Alan Wake on Hard mode, currently on episode 4. Some quick and dirty thoughts on Alan Wake soon to follow…yes, I cannot sleep without the lights on now right now, but that has more to do with my fear of the dark than it does with Alan Wake’s apparent scariness. I could watch any extremely horrible, not scary at all movie and it would probably elicit the same behavior.

Started up a new game of The World Ends With you, which hopefully will see a joint-review from me and Fern in the short future.

I would like to download PB Winterbottom and Indigo Prophecy, but my hard-drive only has 1GB of space left. I’ve got a brand-spankin’ new 60 GB hard drive, but I can’t move my stuff over. Apparently I can call Microsoft and ask for a transfer cable, though?

This next coming week I plan on posting something about morality in games, as well as continuing my extremely popular Battlefield Bad Company 2 guide. Assault is the first class on the menu. We’ll see how these plans fare out, as per usual.

And lastly, some sparse details on our upcoming E3 contest. The full rules and official post will go up tomorrow. The gist of it is, though, that we are hosting an E3 predictions contest. The winner gets 20 bucks in the points of their choice (XBL, PSN Wii). All you have to do is make 20 predictions for what will happen at E3. The person with the most correct predictions wins. Of course, there are a lot of finer details in an attempt to make such a contest fair, and so make sure to check back and see if we’ve posted the official contest rules.

Onwards, to next week!

    Indigo Prophecy is a fuck of a game. Like, cool ideas, but presented in the worst possible fashion, and then left completely unfinished.

    I might actually post something this week, by which I mean I most definitely will, but maybe something fantastic. And by fantastic, I mean Chris Eccleston, Doctor Who “Fantastic!”.
