Alright bear with me one second here… Just let me put on my flak jacket… get my riot armor on… aaaand set up the barricades. Okay, ready to go! Phew, last time I made predictions, I not only whacked the metaphorical hornets’ nest, I treated it like an outpatient piñata. Or [...]
In an effort to prove there is no series currently cuter, Sony and Media Molecule announced Littlebigplanet 2 DLC will be released centered around The Muppets. Don’t believe me? Check out the trailer: See? Sickeningly cute. The Muppets themed DLC is currently available in the Playstation Store. There are both level packs and [...]
Steven Spielberg said “I think the real indicator,” [about video games as an art form], “will be when somebody confesses that they cried at Level 17.” I have never been moved to tears by playing a video game. I’m neither proud or ashamed of the fact because I feel that inevitably I will, but as [...]
Sup gamers, About a week ago, the bizarre ARG campaign at nohopeleft.com finished its countdown and revealed the long-anticipated Resident Evil 6 (and its late 2012 release date). With photos of graffiti-marked structures and one downright creepy found footage film found on the marketing blog, RE6 revealed itself in spectacular fashion with a pretty sweet [...]
Dear Reader, It’s no secret that I thought “Uncharted 3″ was just a little underwhelming, so with rumors that “Uncharted 4″ is more than likely in the works, I thought I should take a second and point out what I want to be different the next time around. God knows I love the franchise, [...]
You know, it wasn’t that long ago that I mentioned a series of urine based games that were involved in the UK, with the hopes of garnering more curio-seeking patrons to various taverns. Now, we’ve got some samples from Japan. I wouldn’t have taken the time to report on a similar product, were it not [...]
Well folks, the new year is upon us, and for us here at Padinga, that means one thing… getting our Video Game P&P* License re-certified. (*Press and Punditry; and no, there really isn’t such a thing. It’s called satire.) So to prove ourselves as official Pundits At Large, I give you… Our Official Predictions for [...]
Dear Reader, Shooter maps come and go, but every now and then one sticks out in your memory; it’s almost like a place you’ve really been. This article will list what I think are the ten best shooter multiplayer maps, and by “best” I mean “most memorable.” I’m not going to argue they’re the [...]
So it has been one month (!) since the launch of BioWare’s first MMO, Star Wars: The Old Republic. Time flies when you’re having fun, huh? What’s that? You aren’t having fun with SWTOR? Yes, it seems there are several issues plaguing the young MMO already, causing players to rage on the game’s [...]
Yesterday was an amazing day. For all it faults, sometimes the internet can be incredible. The solidarity against SOPA & PIPA was worth admiration. In regards to gaming, it’s still very troublesome that the ESA still supports SOPA. Here’s a stance that make sense to me… I hope this gains traction because the ESA represents [...]
Sup gamers, We’re deeply saddened to report that Rockstar’s opus, Max Payne 3, will not see the light of day in March. Unfortunately, you’ll be popping pain killers, bullet-timing and John Woo-diving at least two months later in either late May/early June.
Dear Reader, A viral website called “nohopeleft” has appeared online, containing many pictures like the one below. Notice the “O”s resemble the “Biohazard” logo (“Biohazard” is RE’s name in Japan). Hmmm. Is this some Chris Nolan-esque marketing ploy for “Resident Evil 6?” IGN is reporting a connection between this site and a “Raccoon City” viral site, but [...]
Hey all. I’ve got some long ‘uns in the works, but class and work are a combination I’m only beginning to get used to again. So, to tide you over till I can complete the true news, I thought I’d share a little tidbit I came across via Machinima. I have to admit, the little [...]
Dear Reader, With “Resident Evil: Revelations” on the verge of release (and receiving rave early reviews), not to mention “Operation Raccoon City” looming in March, it’s as good a time as any to take a look back the history of one of gaming’s biggest franchises. Rather than just list off every game in the [...]
Cave Story+ & Cave Story 3D – PC/3DS It’s nice to know that sometimes games that deserve an opportunity to shine get that chance. Who knew this freeware Japanese creation would result in a cult following and eventually a retail release for the Nintendo 3DS? If you haven’t played Cave Story yet, it combines elements [...]
Wassup gamers, With the annual CES convention in full-swing in Vegas this week and a ton of tech innovations being unveiled, we have a startling fear that the next offerings from Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony are already behind the times. Yes, we know close to jack shit about what the Nintendo Wii U, Sony PS4 [...]
Dear Reader, The rumor mill has been spinning wildly about new consoles at E3, but if you really look at the situation, it’s incredibly unlikely. I don’t think either the Xbox 720 or the PS4 will be unveiled at Electronic Entertainment Expo. I’m not psychic, of course, but here’s five solid reasons we may [...]
Dear Reader, If 2012 really is the year the world ends, we’re goin’ out with a bang from a gaming standpoint. As we join hands and prepare to embrace the apocalypse, let’s take a look at the ten most promising games set to release this year, as well as the five least promising…relatively speaking. I [...]
Dear Reader, Uh…just look at it. It’s amazing. I found it here.
Nikkei reports today that Kaz “599 US Dollars” Hirai has been officially named President of Sony Entertainment. The position had been held interim by Howard Stringer, and it has been speculated since November of 2010 that either Hirai or TV/Camera head Hiroshi Yoshioka would take the position. Stringer, who will continue to serve as CEO and [...]
