  • What I Do Instead of Sleep, Part 9: All the Rage

    Lately I've been all about Id Software's latest, E3 previews, Red Dead co-op, Dante's Inferno and Split Second. For the first time ever, I saw a few frames of what appears to be a giant boss in Id's impressive new Rage. It showed its ugly... More
  • Picturing Armageddon: Red Faction Trailer Revisited

    2

    If a picture says a thousand words, this post should speak volumes, LOL. Yeah, I'm back with another pictorial, this time of the chaotic, rapid-fire Red Faction: Armageddon trailer that promises a kind of dungeon crawling action transplanted direct from the mining vessel Ishimura.

  • No Series for Old Men

    I think I have an idea what it must have been like to return from a cattle drive. After immersing myself in Red Dead Redemption since it launched, I find out today that Flashforward and Heroes have been cancelled. Nevermind that Lost just wrapped on Sunday and this is Tudors' denouement as well.

    I decided to search for the Hunting Grounds in Red Dead Redemption's Free Roam and while it wasn't apparent on my private map I did find an area virtually teeming with wildlife. (Screenshot 1: This beautiful terrain belies its dangerous nature... More

    The second day of my journey through Red Dead Redemption's Old West was spent in the game's Free Roam mode. I spent about two hours in a private map and enjoyed every minute of exploration and gameplay.

    (Screenshot 1: Pike's Basin shows off the game's impressive visuals.) I played Red Dead Redemption for about two to three hours last night and so far am impressed. There are some minor issues but otherwise this is an entertaining, and addictive... More
  • UPDATE 2: Call of Duty: Black Ops Teaser Trailer Dissected: A Pictorial

    26

    I don't know about you, but Treyarch's collage (http://gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2010/05/01/debut-trailer-for-call-of-duty-black-ops.aspx) had my head spinning. So here's a blow by blow perspective of the developer's upcoming entry into the Call of Duty franchise. (Note that I didn't include every single frame as some were repetitious; either repeat showings of the lab or longer clips of the same scene.) Your analysis is welcome.

  • The Virtual Canvas

    My recent blog entered the debate of whether video games can be considered art. But it occurs to me that we are going about this the wrong way, and in a manner that plays to renowned critics like Roger Ebert.

  • The Gamer as Art Collector

    A game I'm playing has wowed me like no other and inspired me to think of which video games I've played that I would consider art. While everyone debates whether games can be considered an art form, I think most of us know the answer and can think of titles that have inspired us. So what games do you consider works of art? These are the top 10 games I've played (including the console I played them on) that have impressed me with their artistry (please no heckling, lol):

    There are few things worse than suffering a cheap virtual death. Time your jump imprecisely, wage an unbalanced boss fight, succumb to waves of respawning foes. At least offline, it only involves injury.

    I used to hate when The Official Playstation Magazine would insert advertorials depicting portable, handheld games. I had no interest whatsoever in them, whether they were for cell phones or other portable devices. I didn't really even consider them actual video games.
