Chad’s PS Triple is Now a Manga on iTunes

I'm sure Chad Wardenn approves of the moe-fied PS Triple!

About a couple of years ago, there was a viral video of some dude named Chad Wardenn (or “Woh-ennn” as he’d like to pronounce), who made a video claiming how the PS3 or “PS Triple” is better than the “gay ass” Wii and Xbox 360. Because of the ridiculousness of Chad’s claims, the video went viral and the PS Triple became a meme. It’s hard to tell whether Chad is faking his allegiance to the Triple or not, but nonetheless the video was a comedic hit.

Now, the “PS Triple”, the term that Chad coined, is now the name of a manga series you can buy for the iPhone/iPod Touch. PS Triple is about anthropomorphized moe video game consoles, including of course, the Playstation 3. Kinda like the Troubled Windows characters and equally as strange. Anyway, you can check out the web comic at their blog on the 1up web site.

In honor of the PS Triple, I present to you the origin of the term, coined by Chad Woh-enn himself. Enjoy (or maybe not).

Warning: The video may cause cancer of the AIDS of the leukemia of the eye.

What Street Fighter IV Could Have Been

In our 5th episode of the Unwound show, we’re going to cover our thoughts about Street Fighter IV and the Street Fighter universe. However I came across this today and felt it’s worth sharing to get everyone pumped up about the upcoming show.

Some of you may not remember way back when there were an over abundance of cartoons on the air that weren’t just all edited anime or stuff that’s supposed to look like anime. No we had it good with our Teenage Mutnant Ninja Turtle clones and horrible cartoons based off of video games. theswitcher takes these fond cartoon memories and combines it with the here and the now to bring you the music video monstrosity you see above.

Strangely, the theme Indestructible from Street Fighter IV is incredibly catchy and has become one of gaming’s guilty pleasures. Anyone else out there who wants to admit to this too? I can’t be the only one who’s loved one walked in on him while practicing dance moves to go along with the song.

So Am I Considered Part of G-Unit Now?

So with the last few weeks cluttered with releases like Street Fighter IV, Star Ocean: The Last Hope, Halo Wars, and Killzone 2, who knew that the one game I would end up buying would be this one.

When I first heard about Fiddy’s 2nd foray into the gaming world I wondered why anyone was even covering it in the first place. I didn’t pay it much attention until I started hearing about it from some reputable gaming websites. Which if it was an isolated incident I wouldn’t think twice. But when you start hearing favorable reviews from here and here and over here and don’t forget here too, it becomes hard to ignore this the cult status the game has already undertaken.

As I write this my copy of 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand is currently being processed by Amazon.com, so look forward in the near future to my take on the game and see for yourself whether or not the game is worth it for teh lulz that everyone claims it will bring. Maybe if there’s enough demand the Unwound Show can do a live blog of a co-op run through.
