  • Video Games Live - Video game music that makes you shiver

    12

    Music has always been a vital part of the gaming experience, from the "bleeps" and "bloops" of the old arcade games to the midi soundtracks of the original console generations, to the sweeping orchestral scores of today.  Much of it is iconic, at least to the point where you recognize the game as soon as you hear it (sometimes I still can't get the most addicting song from Dr. Mario out of my head).

    Wow, lots of controversial comments and vitriol in response to Game Informer's post about President Obama making a cameo in Madden 11.

  • Disturbed in Limbo?

    No, I'm not talking about watching Roseann Barr (or does she still just go by "Roseann?") doing the Limbo.

    Intended as a companion piece to my "Why I didn't buy Alan Wake" post (recently featured on this week's (last week's?) Blog Herding (thanks, Annette!)), here's where I admit that I finally broke down and bought this game.

  • The Culture of the Newb

    8

    It's a seemingly never-ending war, where both sides are so entrenched that diplomacy is useless.  Neither side will yield an inch.  The carnage on the battlefield is almost unbelievable, even if you are a participant in this war.

  • Mass Effect 2

    Finally finished Mass Effect 2 last night.  I won't spoil it here, so don't worry.  You can read on.  I have two thoughts on the ending of the game, first as a game and then as a story.
