Two Things - Siren Blood Curse Demo Guide and Ninja Gaiden II Move List
Siren: Blood Curse
I have a feeling that this game is not going to get much exposure partly because it is being released on PSN and partly because the fall games are going to be moving out soon. Regardless, it sure does appear to be one fantastic survival horror experience! Dare you to look.
The full game (all three episodes) is supposed to be released this Thursday (7/24) on PSN for either $14.99 each episode or $39.99 for the whole bundle.
You can find the release info here.
I spent about three days with this guide. One thing I love about having a demo to work with is that I can easily come up with the format for a full guide (if I go ahead with it). That step right there is sometimes the hardest part of starting.

If the game pleases me enough then I will definitely continue ^that all the way since the game is very easy to write for with how involved I get.
Ninja Gaiden II
Back in June, I was working on a full guide for Ninja Gaiden II, but I was running into so many problems while working on it (no official enemy names, no area names) and MGS4 was released only a week after it, so that sort of ruined things. In all honesty, I don't feel that the main game really needs a walkthrough for strategies against normal enemies since you basically just have to learn your own strategies - this was another thing that I was struggling with while writing for it. To me, there are no clear cut ways to beat normal enemies like there were in DMC4. Now with bosses, that's different.
Anway, I decided to just copy and paste some of the information in my guide to make up a move list for all the weapons in the game for anyone that might want it. It's really nothing, but at least it beats throwing away some of the portions that I typed up.

Hopefully that will beat looking them up on the menu everytime you want to see them - I know that I get tired of having to do that.
One more thing that is totally seperate from all of this and really deserves it's own post but I'm posting it here anyway so as not to spam the blog with posts today:
Resident Evil 5 will have a collector's edition on both PS3 and Xbox 360 and it is expected to be $89.99.
Notice how the article mentions a price yet no news whatsoever about the contents. I found that somewhat amusing.
Another interesting quote from that article:
Capcom is promising that it will be the "hardest and scariest" Resident Evil yet.
Let's hope so.
