  • Torches Vs. Pitchforks

    7 1

    More
    In the debate over retail sales of video games there is a dangerous us versus them mentality that has created a great divide and threatens to undermine our industry. While the recent Supreme Court victory against government regulation (Brown vs. EMA)... More
  • The Best Demo You've Never Played

    More
    Searching for previews of Dungeon Siege III recently I was struck by the lack of interest in this forthcoming title. Granted, a few days ago I would not have been surprised in the least considering the ambivalence I harbored for this seemingly generic... More
  • The Outsider's E3

    7

    More
    I am neither a video game industry professional nor a party crasher (not since high school, anyway). In E3 parlance, that makes me an outsider, both figuratively and literally. So I decided to stop by anyway, and this is what E3 is like for the rest of... More
  • Judging a Book by its Cover

    More
    Hunted: The Demon’s Forge is an example of a game, like too many before it, that suffers under the weight of misconceptions, ignorance and impatience. People succumb to hype and expect an open-world role playing game for fans of shooters like Gears... More
  • L.A. Neo Noire

    More
    L.A. Noire inspired me to tour the Historic Downtown area of the City of Angels to see how the streets might have looked during 1947 as depicted in Rockstar’s gritty and entertaining vision. I’ve interspersed my pictorial with notorious tales... More

    I've said GIO is a home away from home, and while my family knows me all two well, I thought it's time my GIO family learns the awful truth ...

    I've said GIO is a home away from home, and while my family knows me all two well, I thought it's time my GIO family learns the awful truth ... A boy’s life: Tape recorded fart contests, snail wars with trash can shields, firecrackers in... More
  • When Networks Don't

    More
    I've been unable to play online for the past few weeks, my work's been interrupted for hours on end the past three days, and I haven't been able to blog on the site Blogger for the past two days. What do all these issues have in common? Electronic... More
  • In the Crosshairs: Surviving True Horror

    In this second installment of my series challenging video game convention, I planned to look at the survival horror genre and the extent to which a real world scenario can play a role. Then I heard about Japan

  • [UPDATE] Sniper Elite V2: Why It Deserves Your Attention

    12

    More
    [Update below.] I’m always intrigued when the public greets news of a new entertainment release with scorn and even rejection without knowing anything about a franchise or especially the product itself. Such is the case with Rebellion’s announcement... More
  • Battle: Los Angeles Review

    15

    More

    To judge by the previews, Battle: Los Angeles is a shallow, derivative film that seeks to attract an audience with a relentless shock and awe compaign. And in fact, it is. However, while some films lose momentum and direction, too, as they progress, BLA... More
  • Easy Does It

    22

    More
    Time for me to play the contrarian again. Easy mode in video games gets a bad rap by most, and discussion on this site lately is no exception. So as a devotee of this much maligned and misunderstood difficulty setting, I'm going to set about defending... More
  • Freedom by Design

    More
    The Adjustment Bureau is not the kind of film that would clearly inspire thoughts of video games. But its romantic foundation and impressive chemistry between lead actors mask its take on fate versus free will that is at the heart of video game design... More
