  • 2013: The Year Of The Shark

    10

    When Tomb Raider hit store shelves in March, there was a lot of talk about 2013 being the year of the bow and arrow. This weapon was prominently used in The Last of Us, and Crysis 3's Robocop wannabe wielded one too. The year started off strong for this primitive weapon, but the action games that released in the following months focused on modern armaments. Alas, it looked like 2013 was going to go by without a silly trend linking numerous games together. More

    Shark attacks were a big part of 2013's video game landscape.

  • Peggle 2: Attack Of The Automated Videos

    4

    My Peggle 2 review is generating a surprising response. People are asking me where they can see the automated video captures I mentioned. You can, but you'll first have to download Xbox One's Smartglass app on your phone or tablet. Next, enter the friends menu, and input the gamertag "Reinak" into the Find Friends search. Once you follow me, you'll be able to see all of my Xbox One activity, including my achievement unlocks, and all of the videos that are either manually or automatically recorded. More

    If you want to see my Peggle 2 videos, here's how to get to them.

  • Lego Movie Maniacs Will Never Happen, But We Can Dream

    6

    Hammerstein NWC is one of my favorite Lego creators. Specializing mostly in custom minifigs, Hammerstein NWC has a great eye for the little details, and has turned many of my favorite characters in entertainment into desirable Lego toys. I was first introduced to his work through his steampunk R2-D2 and C-3PO, and have debated paying him a king's fortune to build custom Marvel figures for me. His Red Skull, Punisher, and Iron Man army are amazing. Today, Hammerstein brings us a gallery of movie maniacs. I doubt Lego would ever make R-rated sets with slashers and horror monsters, but Hammerstein shows us how cool they could be in adorable minifig form. More

  • X-Men: Days Of Future Past Official Trailer

    16 1

    With Bryan Singer (X-Men, X-2) back at the helm to direct another film about the Children of the Atom, we just need one more thing to happen to make the future great: I would love to see Raven Software develop another X-Men Legends or Marvel Ultimate Alliance game. Singer leaving X-Men to write and direct Superman Returns was a shame. Raven not getting the chance to create Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 was equally as disappointing. 20th Century Fox fixed the future. It's up to you now, Activision. More

  • My Ideal Star Wars: Episode VII

    33

    I'm terrified of a future that doesn't have George Lucas calling the shots for new Star Wars films. At the same time, I'm excited for a future that has J.J. Abrams getting Star Wars back on track. More

    Here are a few ideas I would pitch to J.J. Abrams if I talked to him about Star Wars: Episode VII.

  • Marvel Teases Upcoming Comic Event

    9

    On October 11, Marvel Comics is revealing the future of its popular "Now!" line of comic books at its New York Comic Con Panel, Amazing X-Men and the Marvel Universe. Two teaser images accompanied this announcement, offering the words "judgment" and "trial." A closer look at the images reveals two interesting things: The background contains what appears to be a giant number one. The words are also ablaze, perhaps referencing Phoenix-related stories.

  • The Pictures People Take In Grand Theft Auto V

    14 2

    Players can snap photos whenever like in Grand Theft Auto V. These shots include scenic vistas, the eccentric citizens of Los Santos, selfies, and expensive sports cars. Others are taking a more unconventional approach, and Rockstar's Social Club Snapmatic viewer makes them public for all to see. I've scanned through hundreds of these photos, and wanted to spotlight some of the better ones here – whether they are beautiful scenic shots, clever selfies, or funny moments. I urge all you all to visit the site yourselves, but be warned: People are posting M-rated pictures from an M-rated game. New photos are added almost every minute. More

  • The Holiday Spending Conundrum

    22

    After narrowing down the list of games I hope to purchase this holiday season, I’m debating becoming one of those gamers who only plays Call of Duty or Grand Theft Auto. If I became this person, my bank account would thank me, and I wouldn’t be throttled by a migraine whenever I look at my backlog of games. I’m guessing my kill-to-death ratio would become more respectable too. More

    As of this writing, I plan on getting both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on their respective launch days. After taxes (and if my math is correct), I'm looking at spending over $960 just on the machines.
