Star Wars: A New Hope

It is a dark time for Star Wars. Games like Clone Wars: Republic Heroes and The Force Unleashed II have been tanking, and Star Wars Kinect isn’t faring much better off of initial demos. Lucas Arts has been downsizing, and they don’t have a lot of new games on the slate at the moment. It [...]

Hey! Its Maul! I’m drunk and should probably be in bed, but I’m here, casting aside all journalistic integrity to write to you on some very important matters.

3 Tales of Ribald… and Gaming

      Usually, I try to open up the week with some sort of big, bad-ass story, or maybe a lengthy, witty post featuring a half-naked Princess Peach. But frankly, I got nothin’ like that today. Its post E3, and the gaming industry has blown its collective load all over our metaphorical backs, and [...]

E3 2011: Undead and Bloodshed, the Konami Round-Up

    Last week, I sauntered up to Konami’s booth, crowds parting the way from my manly swagger. As I approached the table, with a gleam in my eye and a mischievous grin on my face, I demanded they show me what was up. Promptly, they responded, “Check this shit out.” … okay, maybe that [...]

E3 2011: The WB Round-up, Featuring Top-Tier Fantasy

This year, WB Games presented a game line-up that focused heavily on 3 genres: Fantasy, Super Heroes, and Muppets. Yes, Muppets. But while we’ve focused heavily on those latter two topics, the two premiere fantasy titles have yet to be looked at; and they have to be, as they’re top-notch quality. After the jump, we’ll [...]

E3 2011: Nintendo, and the Worst Game of the Show

Oh, Nintendo. I really don’t know what to think about your E3 presentation this year. On the one hand, I’m all a-tingle with the potential for the Wii-U and its amazing new controller, and can’t wait to see more. So, good job on that presentation. On the other hand, what the shit was the rest [...]

E3: Hands on With Dead Island

Remember last summer when Clash of the Titans came out? That trailer was amazing, all rock and action and great visual FX. … then when the game came out, it was a total cheese fest with legendarily shoddy 3-D imaging. Basically, the final product wasn’t anything like the trailer, and we all walked away griping. [...]

So much glitz and glam. Sony lost a lot of face this year, and they were working hard to earn it back. Free food from all the best food trucks in LA, free booze, a concert performed by Jane’s Addiction… But that’s just for us. That’s Sony swaying the press. Ultimately, for you the reader [...]
