News: Pokemon Games to Play

June 30, 2008

Pokemon has been a significant player in the realm of games.  At one point the highest selling card game on the market, its video games, board games, tv shows, movies, and whole slew of other paraphenalia have made it one of Japan and Nintendo’s biggest cash cows. However, quite often one finds themselves asking which […]

News: Stop Uwe Boll and Get Free Gum – Its Win-Win

May 8, 2008

I just recently read an article about stopping Uwe Boll. Right there, I was hooked. For those of you unfamiliar with Mr. Boll, he is the monster behind basically every horrible video game movie. He is so god awful, that when he said he wanted to do the Metal Gear Solid movie, Hideo Kojima said […]

Games at a Glance: GTA IV

April 28, 2008

Grand Theft Auto/GTA is probably the most controversial video game series in history. Even more so than Counter-Strike, GTA has become the scape goat whenever someone who once played video games ends up killing someone. Usually the psychos making this claim are right-wing nuts who care more about video game control than gun control. I […]

Game Review: Earth Defense Force 2017

April 25, 2008

Let me get something out in the air: while I am a fan of Japan, its culture, food, history, impact on gaming and animation, etc. I do not like Japanocentricity. For those of you unfamiliar with the term, watch or play anything from Japan: does that game or show take place in Japan? Japanocentricity is […]

News: Controllers

April 10, 2008

As my title is “Fun with Controllers,” I thought I probably should post something dealing with, well, controllers. Luckily there has been an influx in news about controllers, which makes the situation a bit easier. Nintendo’s New white GameCube Controller: I of course asked myself “Do they even still make the ShameCube?” Then I realized […]

Game Review: Super Smash Bros. Brawl

April 7, 2008

For those of you familiar with this blog, or my personal tastes, you will know I am not a fan of the Wii. I think it is an incredibly gimmicky system designed to bring non-gamers into the video game industry. It also is not revolutionary. Swinging a control technology has been around for years, and […]

Halo 3 Mod: Road Warrior

March 31, 2008

Due to the success of Whack-A-Mongoose, I thought I would post another Sandtrap Mod.  The complete title is Mad Max on Road Warrior, and you have to do some editing with the map.  The basic idea is this: this is a Team King of the Hill map, with the Hills moving randomly every 2 minutes, […]

Halo 3 Mod: Grifball

March 12, 2008

While this is a mod, this is actually an official mod released by Bungie, thanks in part to the guys at RedVSBlue. To describe the game, I’m going to flash back to our youth, or for some of you, last summer.  At camp, we would play Capture the Flag, but we would do so differently.  […]

Games Revisited: Star Wars: Republic Commando

February 7, 2008

I have no problem admitting I’m a Star Wars Geek.  I’ve got T-shirts, Action Figures, and Movie Posters.  However there is one area that any video game fan should also be: that of the Star Wars Video Game Fan.  The series has been around for years, but we’ll skip the early polygonal Star Wars games […]

News: Game Stop/EB Sales

February 4, 2008

For those of you that aren’t aware, Game Stop/EB are currently trying to make room for the current generation of gaming systems (XBox 360, PS3, Wii), by placing all of the last generations games on sale in an attempt to phase them out. That means XBox and PS2 games are marked down and found in […]
