  • Blog Post: Call of Duty: Black Ops Escalation Impressions

    An afternoon on Xbox Live with today's new Black Ops DLC maps has been instructive.

  • Blog Post: Ghost Recon Wii Hands-on

    Few things in gaming are sadder than awful Wii adaptations of big-budget HD console games. Thank your lucky stars that Ghost Recon: Future Soldier is anything but, despite sharing a name with its recently delayed cousins.

  • Blog Post: Befriending Civilization V's City-States

    My previous hands-on report with Civilization V indicated that I felt pursuing diplomatic relationships with the new city-states to be underpowered relative to other ways to spend your resources. A few thousand years in Alexander the Great's shoes has taught me otherwise. First things first, for... More
  • Blog Post: First Hands-On With Donkey Kong Country Returns

    I was raised on the NES and SNES, and my favorite genre growing up was 2D platformers. Though the 8- and 16-bit Mario games always (rightfully) hogged the spotlight, I had a special love for Rare’s trio of Donkey Kong Country games on the SNES. As such, you can imagine my pleasure to hear that... More

  • Blog Post: Hardware Review: PSPgo Hands-On With Video

    I was very excited when the PSPgo arrived in the office. I had been covering the handheld's exposure over the months, and was intrigued by the prospect of a digital-only device.
