  • The Top Ten Most Imaginative Games

    15
    I am looking forward to the Steam release of the game From Dust after playing through some of it at a friend’s house the other day. It is a pretty darn unique experience. Afterward, I pre-ordered it through Steam. After doing that I got to thinking... More

  • Sneaking Children into M Rated Games

    11
    The title sounds a lot more diabolical than this actually is, but I've noticed something. It seems betas are the big craze for developers and publishers to get good word about their games out, as well as help fix some of the issues that only people... More
  • Tekken on the Big Screen (or at least on the Little One)…

    15 1
    I'm at lunch today and receive the most unusual text message from home base. "Do you want to see Tekken?" SEE Tekken?!? You don't SEE Tekken, you PLAY Tekken. Thoroughly confused, I called home to inquire about the nature of the mysterious... More
