Portal 2 ARG: A Little Disappointing

Let me preface this by saying I think the people at Valve are geniuses.  Their games are consistently awesome, with brilliant writing and fantastic voice acting, and the games themselves are unique and compulsively playable.  I beat Portal 2 within two days of it’s release (took me 12 hours… yeah, I know, I’m slow) and [...]

The Gamer Inside Me Cried When…

…I saw a few of the pictures that Major Nelson (head honcho of Xbox Live) had taken while he was working at the Xbox 360 Premiere Event that was taped this past Thursday and then put up on his blog.  That's right, it was taped, it's not being shown live on MTV this coming Thursday [...]

Wowza…I mean…uh…Forza

If you haven't swung by Gamerankings.com, I strongly suggest that you do so as soon as you get the chance.  Why?  Because Forza Motorsport reviews have begun popping up all over the world since it seems as though we here in North America are actually the last people in the world to get the game [...]

Halo 2 is Awesome Again

The update for Halo 2 occured last week and pretty much fixed everything that I thought was wrong with the multiplayer game, fixed most of the glitches that people were exploiting online, and most of all, managed to make the game fun again.  The increased melee damage, the increased blast radius and damage from grenades, [...]

Why are YOU watching the NFL Draft?

The NFL draft is today.  For the last week I've been watching Mel Kiper, Jr., Chris Berman, and basically every single football analyst that ESPN has covering the NFL Draft, and who they think will be the top 5 picks.  Some think that with the first pick, the San Francisco 49ers will pick the QB [...]

Goggalor!

It's finally out!  Psychonauts is finally here!  I'm telling you right now, I'm not going anywhere the rest of the day except to EB to go pick this marvelous little gem up.  If the reviews so far are any indication, and if my previous experience with the game is as well, then I'm in for [...]

Jade Empire

After nearly a year of waiting since I last played the short demo on the floor of E3 for Jade Empire, Bioware's first original game has been released.  I must say that even though I've only played the first chapter (of I believe 8), I am so far thoroughly impressed.  Jade Empire runs on an [...]

Welcome to Mars, Marine.

Doom 3 finally gets released on Xbox this monday.  After all of the waiting and the promising, it finally comes out.  Thankfully, thanks to our expanded ninja budget after their success with the PSP, I've managed to get a hold of a copy of the game already.  Now I know PC fanboys are going to [...]

I Thought I Saw Some…*snap*

Ah yes.  A new Splinter Cell, a new way to bring the art of spine-twisting to some of your closest terrorist pals.  I could probably rant and rave about the hours I've poured into this game already (and I just might), but I think I'll just stick to a little basic bit of info on this [...]

Why Must God Mock Me?

So I just got Neverwinter Nights, and I'm having a blast with it.  Keep in mind, I did have it when it first came out, simply because of the hype surrounding it, and the fact that everyone was saying, "If you liked Diablo, you'll love this," sounded like a ringing endorsement in my ears.  However, [...]

Off to California

Hey guys, I just wanted to say "hey" before I head out to San Francisco on Tuesday to cover the Game Developers Conference for the site.  What is GDC, you ask?  Well, it's kinda like E3, but it's only for developers, and they have these really cool workshops the entire time, where speakers basically give their ideas [...]

What a Week…

Not only is Star Wars: Republic Commando out now for Xbox and PC, but Brothers in Arms comes out today for Xbox, Devil May Cry 3 comes out today for PS2, and don't forget that Fight Night Round 2 dropped yesterday as well.  This is a crazy week for gamers, especially if last week's lightning-fast [...]

No OXM and No Splinter Cell Makes Jack Something Something…

My big problem right now is that everyone on the internet, including Penny Arcade, seems to have the latest Official Xbox Magazine, with what is perhaps the greatest demo disc ever.  This disc has demos for Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, Conker: Live and Reloaded, and a Live-enabled demo of Unreal Championship 2.  Now I actually [...]

Takin’ It To the Street

Streetball.  That's pretty much all I'd have to say to get everyone ready and wanting to play EA BIG's new game, NBA Street Vol. 3.  Now say what you will, I think Vol. 2 was one of the best basketball games ever due to the ease that they gave you to pull off tricks and [...]

Winning Eleven 8…GOOOOOOAL!

Winning Eleven 8 is coming out today for both Xbox and PS2.  And yes, I know what you're thinking.  "What the hell kind of name is Winning Eleven 8, anyways?"  Well, I'll tell you.  It's the name of Konami's glorious soccer game that beats the tar out of EA's pathetic FIFA games any day of [...]

Odder And Stranger

I've managed to play a good little bit of Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath at this point in time now, and I have to say that I enjoy it quite a bit.  Par for the course, Lorne Lanning and the Oddworld Inhabitants team have crafted some gorgeous pre-rendered FMVs for important story sequences that are just as [...]

Howdy Stranger

One of the games that I was extremely interested in way back in 2003 when it was first announced was Oddworld Inhabitants' Stranger's Wrath.  It seemed back then that it was going to be taking the Oddworld series in a new direction, that only Lorne Lanning, the head of the studio, and his great team [...]

Mechassault 2: This Time It’s Personal

Hey all, I'm back from my vacation.  I finally managed to pick up Mechassault 2 for my xbox, and I'm here to tell you all about it.  The first thing that you'll notice about Mechassault 2 is that it looks MUCH better than the first Mechassault.  Textures have gotten a huge upgrade, and the models [...]
