Video Game News from April 2009






Resident Evil 5 is one of those games that you shouldn't miss. The production value alone will have you staring at your screen in awe, much less the mutants and virus-infected villagers (aka, zombies) that you encounter.

Speaking of those monsters, you're going to need some help in dealing with them unless you want your face clawed off or your head axed to pieces. That's where the LB RE5 Game Guide comes in.

With it by your side you'll be able to solve every puzzle, defeat every boss, find all 30 emblems...and so much more!

  • Comprehensive Boss Strategies
  • 100% Completion
  • All Emblems
  • "The Mercenaries" Mode Covered

According to Kotaku, a senior Harmonix designer has confirmed "LEGO Rock Band."

There is no word yet on a release date nor platforms but being huge LEGO fans here at Lunabean, all we have to say is, "Rock On!!!"

Oh, and the image above is from the Brickshelf Gallery, which has a whole slew of LEGO-ized rock bands including our fave and Portland's own The Decemberists. Oh, happy day.

A Facebook friend pointed this one out to me. Despite my extensive videogame knowledge, somehow the Journey Arcade Game has evaded my radar over the years.

What I would give to have a gaming room with this as the centerpiece.



Oh...and the commercial. I love the 80s.

Those Danes. Bored with being peaceful, green, well educated, and well, ranking as the "happiest place in the world," some enterprising young students at the University of Southern Denmark have created the very first Wii Lawnmower, the CASMOBOT.

I guess we can add lazy to that list. Zinger!!!

Kotaku today has a good BioShock 2 impressions post up.

***SPOILERS***

There are still many questions to be answered from this preview but the most interesting to me are why you are playing as a Big Daddy and can 2KGames recapture the magic of the first game?

We'll just have to wait until the end of September 2009 when the game debuts. We'll be sure to have a strategy guide and cheats available soon thereafter.

If you missed the first two Max Payne titles from Rockstar, then you've missed a part of gaming history. The original title, one of the first to incorporate "bullet-time" into gameplay, set the standard for first-person shooters on the last generation of consoles (Xbox, PS2, Gamecube). Not only was the gameplay new and fresh, but the use of noir storytelling devices earned critical acclaim.

Now you can download both Max Payne titles to your Xbox 360 for $15 a pop. Not a bad option for those trying to reel in spending but want a great gaming experience, nor those who want a Max Payne refresher before Max Payne 3 arrives this winter.



Download Max Payne
Download Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne now.

And, while the original game launched before we started publishing guides, we do have a fabulous Max Payne 2 Walkthrough and Strategy Guide available. Get it, access it as part of the LunaPass, which gives you access to ALL LB Game Guides for only $4.95!
