One day I aspire to be that much of an asshole boss. My employees are so spoiled that when I put admin accounts on the computers (after they installed so much malware and viruses that I had to wipe some of the HDDs and spend hundreds on IT services), they all complained and whined.
I need to clamp down like that -- get those bums working again.

Grabbed X-Men this morning. There is no way I'm not buying that at $2.50. Heck, that's less than a game room game

Ziet isn't part of the deal; it was already on sale.

Is the Fable 3 DLC worthwhile? I recently got the game and have been enjoying it so far. Haven't looked into the DLC at all yet.

Check the review on IGN. The reviewer reported that he finished this DLC in 22 minutes. Even at this price, it sounds like a pass to me.

Metacritic 50

IGN review

I added Xmen to my download queue this morning.

Thanks.

That is pretty disappointing. I doubt I will even bite at 200 points.

Heh, and after tonight, I have ten of the achievements. And the two left? Easily obtainable through single player. No jumping in the 4th stage (I jump around a lot when I play so, I just have to force myself) and beating the game with all six characters (I already got Dazzler and Nightcrawler). I was amazed I got everything else so quickly even the beat the game in 25 minutes achievement. Still totally worth my $2.50 though.

Rush n' Attack is decent. Though it doesn't push the envelope at all.

Now this is just cruel : For an April Fool's joke, the developers put out this trailer for an alternate mode:

Is that a joke? It seems legit to me, but for the date.

Did you read the YouTube description?

That's all I had to go on. It was uploaded the day before AFD so it's certainly possible it's a joke, but it looks legit and the description rings true of an actual BK promotion.

Edit: Of course when I posted, Decker's post was just a URL to the youtube page, not an embedded video. All this happened before you woke up.

MonkeyPaw Games is proud to announce the return of Burger King's famous international mascot The Burger King to videogames. The Burger King will be featured in an expansive Downloadable Content pack for the upcoming retro revamp BurgerTime HD, slated to hit all major consoles and PC in summer 2011. The DLC will be free once gamers make required purchases of BK food items in the Summer of Yum promotion.

Here's the PR. I'd like to say it's a joke, but I can't legitimately tell. The "Lost Numbers" condiment package stuff is weird but really not out of the realm of possibility. We'll lean towards prank for now.

Hokkaido, Japan - MonkeyPaw Games is proud to announce the return of Burger King's famous international mascot The Burger King to videogames. The Burger King will be featured in an expansive Downloadable Content pack for the upcoming retro revamp BurgerTime HD, slated to hit all major consoles and PC in summer 2011. The DLC will be free once gamers make required purchases of BK food items in the Summer of Yum promotion.

As perhaps the most popular advertising character ever realized, the King was initially known as a little creepy, but his friendly demeanor and helpful overtures to hungry masses of burger-lovers in television land has earned a special place in the hearts of many. Now gamers will get the chance to spend some quality time in a 3D rotational world with His Royal Badness doing what he does best – making delicious burgers from quality ingredients and innovating new tastes while avoiding demonic weenies, maniacal pepper shakers, and crazy eggs.

However, the quality ingredients don't just show up at franchisees stores. Key to the game will be important, PETA-approved, educational mini-games like "Meat Reality", where players name a special calf on the farm, raise it, then take it to the "Boo Boo House" where it quickly becomes kobe-quality marbled USDA beef by the loyal ranch hand Herb. Another big episode sure to be a fan-favorite is an episode called "Oblivious Chicken", where The King puts his Sneak King skills to use again, tracking the pampered fowl, then sending them to a better place in mouth-watering BK chicken creations with a precise swipe of the analog stick by players.

"All of us knew from the beginning that having The Burger King involved with BurgerTime HD was an obvious choice. We just didn't know how fantastic the final product would become because of it. The King is one of the most recognizable icons in the culinary world, and fans continue to flock to the character's mystique to this day," said John Greiner, President of MonkeyPaw Games. "It takes a big personality to craft an enormous burger, and The King is the best. Even Peter Pepper would agree that sharing space with him is a huge plus for gamers and burger-lovers everywhere."

Players will be delighted to learn that the game's developers, Frozen Codebase, have also been hard at work making their excellent work in BurgerTime HD even better in the Delicious Edition, adding features like one-hand mode which allows completely one-handed play, allowing gamers to enjoy real mouth-watering BK Burgers while they direct The King to make more. They've also integrated it with the optional KingSensetm mask that will be available with additional BK food purchases. The KingSensetm mask is designed to look like The King and sensors inside it detect a player's face state, making the game easier or harder until there are nothing but smiles while playing. It also can activate auto-slow-mo while the player is distracted, such as while taking a bite of their BK burger, fries, or desserts.

The Delicious Edition can be earned by finding BK condiment packets with the Summer of Yum logo that have specific winning promotional numbering on them and exchanging them all in-store with $1.98 for the download code. The condiment numbers for this promotion are: ketchup packets numbered 8, 16, and 42 – mustard with numbers 15 and 23 – and mayonnaise with number 4. KingSensetm masks can be earned, while supplies last, by collecting 7 King Medallions. Each Whopper Value Meal order with chocolate milk and a Hershey's pie combo will come with a King Medallion. There are no drink or dessert substitutions allowed to earn the Medallion. Players that are lactose intolerant will have to suck it up to party with The KingSensetm mask.

BurgerTime HD will be released in Summer 2011, and the Delicious Edition DLC will be available at a BK near you on the same release date. For more updates, head to www.burgertimehd.com.
