Spike teases something called 'Planet'

I didn't forget that the Spike VGAs are steadily approaching, but it had kind of slipped my mind how many big announcements tend to get made during the show. We were already expecting to see more on Batman: Arkham City, but ...

An absurd little article has been spewed up by the Lancashire Evening Post, where two hours of videogame playing has been directly compared to doing a line of cocaine. The story claims that a young boy was "tormented" by his ...

Review: God of War III photo
Review: God of War III
by Nick Chester

Kratos has successfully killed the God of War, Ares. He has challenged Zeus, the King of the Gods, and lived. What's next? Well, take down all of Olympus, of course. In the latest and final installment of the God of War trilogy, that's exactly what Kratos intends to do. 

Fans of the series expect great things, since the previous installments of the franchise held up as some of the best gaming experiences of all time. The God of War III team could have simply slapped a new coat of paint on the existing formula, dreamed up some big boss battles, and called it a day. We would have been happy; that's what we were expecting. 

But the final result is something more than fancy new HD clothing. Instead, it's a game that redefines scale in action games, one of the few titles that truly hammers home the meaning of "last-gen." God of War III is like nothing you've ever seen or experienced in gaming. The end has begun, and you are not ready.

'Terminator FPS,' a rad-looking mod for Gears of War

Two total conversion mods in one night? Why yes, I have been huffing glue again. Oddly enough, both of these mods are for games that have since received follow-ups, although this time, the sequel was never released for PC ......

This video almost proves Blur is a sequel to Ghostbusters

Now I don't know how indicative these trailers are of what Bizarre Creations' Blur actually looks like with a controller in your hand, but they remind me of the now-we're-going-really-fast-bro moments in The Fast and the Fur...

Monday Mind Teasers: Samorost 1 & Samorost 2

After last week's little game Little Wheel, I decided to make this week dedicated to the game that heavily influenced it and countless of other online flash games back in the day. Is Samorost older than the Internets? Yes. Is...

Critique a notebook design, win The Beatles: Rock Band photo
Critique a notebook design, win The Beatles: Rock Band
by Papa Niero

Somebody smart once said that something to the effect of "the interface is your product". I think this is how Apple gets away with overpricing their low-powered computer line (and they deserve every penny for getting it right). This is why last-gen graphics on the Wii are outselling consoles with twice the juice. The interface is welcoming. It's fun. It makes you want to dress up in bright clothes and open your windows and invite over only friends that have their acne and hair under control. But I digress.

I brought up this conversation with the Dtoid team to help me with my Asus project where, once every two weeks, I try to make gaming notebooks suck less by inviting gamers to talk about stuff they might want.  This week I gathered up a series of photos from their recent computers (see gallery below) and asked everyone to give me a 1-3 word critique on what they saw.  Here's what they said:

Joseph: Expensive. Aesthetic.
Tron:  Woodgrain? Really?
Matthew: Shiny, high-end.
Brian: Cool, but busy.
Brad: Sleek.
Jonathan: Bumblebee! Nice.
Anthony: Facepalm.
Hamza:  I’m a computa.
Colette:  Modern, sleek.
Scott:  Masculine.
Rey: Tacky.

To each his own.  So, about that contest! Win a copy of The Beatles: Rock Band (game only, any platform) just by telling these PC designers what you think of their products.  Here's how to register to win: Create an account on WePC.com with a username that reads Dtoid_YourName and place a brief design critique comment on this post (not on Dtoid).  Example: "Dtoid_Niero - This is tits." You can only post once, and all countries/regions are eligible to win. A random winner will be selected next Friday and prizes ship whenever the game goes gold.  Good luck and thanks for sharing!
