Top 5: New System Mascots That Aren’t Named Mario or Sonic

It appears as time goes on that Mario and Sonic (especially Sonic) are becoming almost irrelevant. Mario appears mainly in spin-off games, like Mario Kart and even that has lost its luster. Sure, he pops up in a true Mario game once every 3 or 4 years, but aside from New Super Mario Bros., was anyone really excited about any of those games? With that in mind, I thought it time to showcase the new mascots of the new generation. Feel free to disagree and add your own or make your own list.

Sony Fanboy Rant: Trophies vs. Achievements

DISCLAIMER: ALL OPINIONS EXPRESSED IN THIS COLUMN ARE SOLELY THOSE OF A TYPICAL SONY FANBOY. GAMERSUSHI.COM IS MERELY A VEHICLE FOR THIS CONSOLE WARRIOR TO WIELD HIS BLADES OF FURY AT MICROSOFT AND NINTENDO. SHOULD OTHER FANBOYS WISH TO OPINE, THEY ARE FREE TO DO SO.

For eons it seems, I have been forced to listen to 360 fanboys declare the glory of Achievements. What a joke. Achievements? Anyone can achieve something. Just think of Little Lebowski’s Urban Achievers. Proud we are of all of them? I THINK NOT. Aren’t Achievements what they hand out at the Special Olympics in lieu of medals?

Preview: The Force Unleashed

Let’s face it, every single kid dreams about having a lightsaber or being able to force choke a bitch. Heck, I even wave my fingers in front of automatic doors and chuckle a little on the inside at my own cleverness. So it was with much anticipation and slight trepidation that I downloaded the demo for The Force Unleashed over the weekend to give my lightsaber a whirl.

All I’ve got to say is: TFU just may be the game Star Wars geeks have been waiting for.
