So, Heavy Rain. Pretty awesome PS3 exclusive. One of the big memes it spawned was from the very early scenes in the game, when Ethan takes his family to a mall and hisson, Jason, gets lost. During this segment you have to run through the mall yelling for him: pressing X to Jason. Ethan's recorded line of him screaming Jason kind of caught on because, well it was amusing. First there was the flash game. Now there's the song/music video:

As I said, there's no spoilers in here. This happens in the first 15 minutes of the game. Enjoy!

Gamestop, we all love them and their whole LET'S SELL OPENED GAMES AS NEW thing they like to do. Taking a stance against that policy, a clever eBayer by the name of newyorkrarebooks has put a "Gamestop NEW" copy of Valkyria Chronicles up for sale at $4,995. What's so special about this copy? I'll let the seller exlplain:

This is extremely rare to find in this state considering most other "new" / "sealed" games don't have the scratches on the disc nor the fingerprint smudges nor the somehow missing instruction manual that this version has.

Kinda funny, isn't it? Well, at least I found it funny.

Also, here's a fun anecdote about Gamestop and Valkyria Chronicles. As you may know, VC was one of the games Gamestop had as part of the recent Gamer Days thing they had. They were selling it new for 30. Initially I was like "BAWWWW IT'S GAMESTOP NEW SCREW THIS". But then I looked over at the used games and saw they had Valkyria Chronicles used for 30 and immediately stopped my whining. I even thanked the friendly Gamestop associate for saving me the hassle of having to open up the game myself.

I hope you've heard of Mega64. If not, they're a comedy group that does live action re-enactments of games in public. Go look them up on YouTube.

So, their new skit is Metal Gear Solid 4, and they manage to squeeze in a few fantastic special guests. I won't ruin who it is, so hit the jump if you want to find out who. This video really needs no more introduction, so here you are:

So, you know Adam Sessler, host of G4TV's X-Play? Yeah, he pretty much showed how amazing he is yet again, as if his rally against bigots on Xbox Live and his complete ownage of Final Fantasy fanboys wasn't enough. Watch this video in response to the hate mail they received from SONY FANBOYS (not 360 fanboys, PS3 fanboys) accusing them of being biased in their 5/5 review of Killzone 2 for the PS3.

He comes vicious at both 360 fanboys claiming Gears of War 2 is better because IGN gave it .1 point higher than Killzone 2, and PS3 fanboys who claim they weren't serious because they sounded upset that it was a good game.

I for one applaud Adam for saying what needs to be said in this day of console fanboyism on the internet. Bravo, good sir, bravo.

Posted under RFG Aside, Mega Man, Awesomesauce, Pure Awesome, Random

Remember when David posted an awesome version of the Mega Man 3 theme with added lyrics? Well, the same guy who made that did another song. This time he takes the theme to the first stage of Dr. Wily's castle in Mega Man 2 and adds some lyrical awesomesauce on top of it.

I especially liked his short reviews of Mega Man 2-7 and the Guy Smiley reference.

Is it as good as the last one? Have your say in the comments!
