  • Buggin' Out: What's Up With The Hoops Games This Year?!

    The Internet is abuzz with backlash over the bug-heavy releases of both NBA basketball games, particularly NBA 2K10. Many sports gamers have dusted off their pitchforks over the shoddy work, and the company responses have been swift. Visual Concepts announced... More
  • The Tease Of The Audi Sportscar Experience

    Something you may or may not know about me, but I love automobiles. I'm always looking for an excuse to get a faster more agile one, and even after I upgrade it just feeds my desire for newer, more ridiculous cars. My current want (which, by the way... More
  • Video Game Halloween Costumes For The Talentless Gamer

    21 2
    Some people dedicate days of their lives to Halloween costume creation. I'm the kind of guy who purchases a costume in a bag. Sure, it may look like crap, but that's what I like about Halloween costumes – looking foolish. Listed below are... More
  • Impressions: Abbey Road DLC

    I excitedly downloaded the Abbey Road DLC, and after a couple playthroughs, I'm both delighted and disappointed. Straight off, it's hard to argue that the DLC is worth the money strictly in a monetary sense simply because so many of the songs... More
  • What Is That...Thing?!

    20 3
    Sure, most of the editors have toys and collectibles on their desk. Not me. I've got this monument of monstrosity anchoring my workspace. It's The Trophy of the Gilded Frog. Ex-editor Jay Fitzloff and I created this beast as a way to celebrate... More
