  • Video Game Cross-Overs-Good Idea or Doomed to be Crap (except for fighters, that is)?

    The first time I had ever heard of a "crossover game" was when I was back in school and the first SNK VS Capcom was released. Of course, from there, the majority of "crossover games" seem to be fighting games (ie: Smash Brothers, Marvel... More
  • Amplitude: How Annette Gonzalez is making me buy a PS2 game

  • Should single-player-only games be cheaper?

    23 1
    That's certainly one way to look at why some recent games have tanked, though I'm not sure it's the only reason. I've been playing the well-reviewed recent game, Shadows of the Damned , and think it's actually a pretty good game. However... More
  • Bump!: Revisiting the Greats

  • Mortal Kombat Legacy, Episode 9- Cyrax and Sektor

    Kano returns with the Grand Master of the Lin Kuei and an old white doctor to create LK4D4 and LK9T9, aka Cyrax and Sektor. Some of the best CGI in the series highlights this beautiful episode. I really like the look of the cyborgs. Watch how they transform... More
  • Failure of Gotham's Guardian: A Short Story


    ~ 5-15-minute read.This story has been on my mind for some time, and the boredom of sitting 2 hours at the airport and sitting for 6 more hours in the cramped space of an airplane helped develop this, oddly enough. Anyways, hope you enjoy.

    Inspired by Nolan's "The Dark Knight" and Heath Ledger's Joker.
