Dress up like Clayton Carmine in Minecraft on Xbox


Jul 07
// Liam Fisher
Honestly, I'm still at a loss as to why Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition does not allow players to import character skins through some sort of PC wizardry. Creating custom skins for Minecraft is a basic luxury, but I digress. Moja...

It looks like this whole Marvel Heroes thing is actually happening, huh? Back in May developer Gazillion Entertainment popped up to say 'Hey!' and drop a trailer and, surprisingly, it looks like it's got a lot of potential. ...

Jul 05
// Liam Fisher
Back in January, Rockstar Games gave Max Payne fans the chance to be forever immortalized in Max Payne 3's multiplayer. A cool idea, for sure, but apparently the contest was met with a good deal of success as they've ext...

Go snag your free SRT Viper for Forza 4


Jun 23
// Liam Fisher
You may have heard about Forza Horizon by now. (If not read up on it!) It's piqued my interest as a gamer, but beyond that, it's caught my attention as a man who has a thing for Dodge Vipers. Yeah, they're a big thing for For...

Rockstar puts cheating Max Payne 3 players in the corner


Jun 12
// Liam Fisher
I think we can all agree that cheaters are the absolute worst. Those self-important jerks who have nothing better to do but ruin the game for everyone else are a constant source of frustration for gamers and developers alike,...

May 14

With Ghost Recon: Future Soldier due out next week, Ubisoft's hype train is at full speed. Rather than the usual spread of screens, trailers, and announcements of preorder goodies though, they've released a nearly 25 mi...

May 11
// Liam Fisher
Last month we got a look at the first of two playable factions in Trion Worlds' MMORTS End of Nations, The Liberation Front. Things get significantly less noble with the introduction of the Shadow Revolution, which appears t...

Back in February, Theory Interactive pulled the curtain away to reveal Reset, a singleplayer co-op puzzle game. Yep, singleplayer co-op. Using the wonders of time travel, you'll work together with yourself to solve puzzles i...

Check out End of Nations' Liberation Front Faction


Apr 25
// Liam Fisher
End of Nations is one of those free-to-play games that has managed to escape my ever-watchful eye as of late; it caught my attention last year, but has since fallen away. Simply the idea of a strategy MMO, or rather one...

Apr 13
// Liam Fisher
Mega64's Indie Man has made his triumphant return, setting out yet again to thwart AAA publishers in an attempt to stand up for the little guy. I like to think this is how things really happen. Jim reviewed the apparently mi...

Mar 30

Fatshark's Krater will make a hole in my wallet


Mar 28
// Liam Fisher
How have I not heard of Krater before today?!  The top-down RPG from Fatshark games (the folks behind Lead and Gold: Gangs of the West, and Bionic Commando: Rearmed 2), touts an intriguing setting and more than its ...

The Daily Hotness: Ryu's a bit bitter


Mar 23
// Liam Fisher
Yeah, it seems most people didn't like Ninja Gaiden, but that doesn't make Ryu any less of a badass. This was definitely Epic Mickey 2's day. Beyond that, Mass Effect 3's getting a face-fixing patch, the Adventure Time DS ga...

I know you folks are starting to compile your own personal lists of who will or won't be in attendance at E3 this year, right? Well it seems you can definitely count on seeing Zynga there, so go ahead and breathe a sigh of re...

The Daily Hotness: Haggar vs. Sentinel


Mar 09

I... f*ck. It's Armored Core V, guys. I remember buying my PS1 way back when, opening the packed-in demo disk (the one with Croc: Legend of the Gobbos, Parappa the Rapper, and I.Q), and falling in love with Armored...

Mar 08
// Liam Fisher
There are quite a few behind-the-scenes videos out there, but rarely are they delivered with this much class. At its core, the trailer simply depicts The Witcher 2's January CG trailer in its early stages, but it's so damn s...
