As both a Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 owner, I face a dilemma once each console's motion capture devices are released. Yes, I will have to choose between the Natal and Move, because that piece of leather in my back pocket just doesn't have enough paper or plastic to afford two things that in all reality have the same capabilities. So, in an effort to justify the purchase of one over the other, I sa... more.

Ahhh, the golden days of gaming, when life was simple and health bars were standard. The Nintendo 64 was my first endeavor into gaming, and seeing that I now live and breathe games, it fittingly holds a special place in my heart. Unfortunately, all good things come to end.

I gave up trying on Modern Warfare 2 a long time ago. The uneven difficulty in multiplayer, with the "good get better and the bad never improve" structure pissing me off to no end. But I stuck through it and played for the social aspect, mainly due to the fact that all my friends seemed to enjoy it and I enjoyed talking to my friends. Lucky for me, a little game called Bad Company 2 came aroun... more.

No, I am here to discuss a little game called Greed Corp, a beautiful piece from W!Games and one of the best land grab games I have played to date. While simple in thought and design, Greed Corp finds succ... more.

It's difficult to pick a name that will represent yourself. We all know the feeling from when we picked our gamertag, PSN id, Steam id, etc., and we did so with the thought of how this name would help depict what kind of person you are. While a gaming name tag is a little less profile, every company has a clever reason for choosing their name. I've compiled a list of the most clever and creative n... more.

If you bought Darksiders early enough, you should have received a mysterious card with a redeemable code on it. It seems that the code has found a purpose, so hopefully you held onto it. THQ recently announced that players with the code will be awarded with a digital book featuring Darksiders art, videos, and "other awesome stuff."

Movies That NEED Game Translations

I, as a gamer, am tired of the terrible games that come along with every children's movie or action-packed summer flick. But there are certain movies that truly need a video game rendition. You see, there is one area that developers have rarely tapped into for inspiration. I am talking about the classic movies that we have all seen and loved. There are rare cases, like maybe The Godfather or Star... more.
