Movie watch - Star Trek 2009

It's Star Trek, but not as we know it. Star Trek 2009 is on its way and the biggest question I have is whether or not the new era of Star Trek will deliver?

Guitar Hero vs. Rock Band

Guitar Hero vs. Rock Band

Last week I detailed the ethereal magic of the current music game trend, this week I thought I'd get down to the more tangible issues; namely which of the two competing band simulators is the better.
