E3 2007: Halo 3 campaign trailer and screens put nightmares of Halo 2 to rest

So, this actually looks good. Even the most diehard of Halo fanboys had to admit the multiplayer was graphically underwhelming and the sneak peak at the single player was not so hot either. Holding on to all hope, they insisted things would...

Sony interview: "We are still winners!" *tear*

This video with SCEA president Jack Tretton pretty much encompasses everything that is wrong with Sony this generation. It's like everyone knows the PS3 bombed, and they simply won't admit that things could have gone a little better...

Project Gotham Racing 4 gets bikes, is now infinity +1 times better than Forza

If Forza 2 was a man and I was a woman, while I was playing it I would have kept thinking to myself "Are you in yet?" But, as underwhelming as that overhyped Microsoft moneymaker is, gamers can always rely on Bizarre Creations and...

HGS 07: Clive Barker on fat people, Jericho, and videogames as escapism

Clive Barker is sort of a love him or hate him type of guy. For instance, I love his books, hate his movies. And by "his" movies, I of course mean the Hollywood bastardization of his works. But listening to this man speak was inte...
