Check it out! We introduce a brand new series! GAMER CRIBS! First up, that mega-hottie, CESAR QUINTERO. AWW YEAH! Also: Wii Sports Resort (is awesome), Overlord 2, and Real Racing for the iPhone.
Occasionally we have an episode that features one person over all others. This show is ALL CESAR ALL THE TIME BABY, WOOOOOooo! His smiling countenance appears in each segment and in our first-ever Gamer Cribs. We'd like to thank MTV for all the lame cross-fades, ridiculous camera angles and for setting a standard of reusing the same footage over and over again; saved us a lot of time and brainpower.
So, here's something that was kind of a shocker for some of us: Wii Sports Resort is genuinely awesome. Yeah, a few of us are kinda cynical when it comes to the Wii "waggle," but the addition of Wii motion plus impressed Cesar, Matt, and JayFresh show much after our hands-on time down at Nintendo of America HQ that we just had to share.
Overlord 2 is a sequel people have been frothing at the bit over ever since its announcement. The much-beloved premiere of the series is a paragon of evil pastimes for gamers everywhere and thus this latest incarnation comes with some heavy hype baggage. Matt and Cesar are both new to the series and while Matt remains less-than-impressed (at least partially due to his frustrating experience with the PC controls), Cesar's evil genes were tickled pink thanks to the baby seal clubbing and mayhem exercises. Our good friend from GameSpy, RebelFM host and Eat. Sleep. Game magnate Anthony Gallegos was our sole guest on the show this week during this segment of the show and held up his end as an ardent supporter of the franchise.
And, finally, Cesar rounds out his appearances on this week's show with a quick, and insistent, hands-on of Real Racing for the iPhone. Both an impressive technical and visual achievement, Ryan didn't have to press very hard to convince Cesar to give the game a try.
