Does GTA IV promote drunk driving?

Rockstar just can't help themselves, it seems. As well as all the SORDID HARD SEX (i.e, some strippers and dry humping) and the REALISTIC MURDER SIMULATIONS (i.e, being able to work a sniper rifle without any prior experience...

Game Suppli: vitamin supplements for gamers

As gamers, we have a sort of reputation for being unhealthy. I'm not saying that all of us slam bottles Mountain Dew and cram a slice of pizza in between rounds, but you know what I'm talking about. There's gamers out there t...

Super Mario Power Up! Energy Drink contains cocaine

Ok, it doesn't, really. But if it had, wouldn't it have been some crazy gossip to tell your friends? "So, I was up trying to finish this paper, and I only had 6 hours left before class, so I slammed a few Power Ups and f...

Mass Effect metaporn: Strip clubs in the future will still be poorly lit

The above clip demonstrates Mass Effect's stunning slutty-aliens-designed-to-pander-to-teens rendering system. Then again, maybe we're being too cynical. After all, it would be unrealistic to think the future wouldn't also ...

Gamefly bumps up subscription prices ... no more Faberge eggs for you! photo
Gamefly bumps up subscription prices ... no more Faberge eggs for you!
by William Haley

With the rising prices on video games and the sheer volume of worthwhile titles to play, online rental service Gamefly is a god-send, the likes of which have not been seen since Adriana Lima's emergency escape pod crash-landed on this planet. Unfortunately, when not helping rescue burning orphans and making cookies for old people, Gamefly also runs a business. That business has expenses. Thanks to the recent postage hike, those expenses have now become your expenses.

As of June 18th, all Gamefly subscription rates will be increased by an unbelievably astoundingly ridiculously whopping $1. While one dollar now may not seem so bad, think back to what you thought the first time gas was making it's way past the $2 per gallon mark. I say we rise up against the tyranny that lives in the hearts of men now before our faces are raped by throbbing purple--- you know what, on second thought just pay the extra dollar. Jesus would.
