A common argument in the ongoing debate over gender and videogames is that women and men both are equally objectified. Is that really true?
As always, Emperor God King Jim Sterling puts His holy foot down and delivers wisdom true to the masses. He totally isn't smug about it, either!
While it would have been nice for Gears of War: Judgmentto come out of the gate with more content, the fact that some of the post-release DLC is free helps reduce the sting.
Following the Haven map and Execution mode, another multiplayer map, Dreadnought, will be free for a limited time starting on May 15. This is courtesy of Maxim, which leads me to believe someone did their marketing-research homework on demographics.
I have to say, the new map does look cool -- fitting of the name, too. Be sure to get Dreadnought on or around Wednesday while it's still complimentary.
Since Gears of War 3, Epic Games has not been afraid to squeeze every last cent out of its customer base through premium maps and skins for characters and weapons. Don't get me wrong, I still consider the All Fronts DLC pack for Gears of War 2 to be one of the best available for any game. The amount of replay value that my friends and I got out of all of those maps was well worth the 800 Microsoft Points.
With Gears of War: Judgment's Call to Arms, however, Epic and People Can Fly are only giving us a sparse amount of new content -- for a game that already didn't have a lot of multiplayer variety to begin with.
While quantity does not always equal quality, in this case, it wouldn't have hurt to give the fans more.
Time for more poetry from your best buddies, Jim n' Yahtzee. This week our literary brains pick on manly men's videogames and pay homage to Dark Souls.
Lovely writing, brutal sarcasm, and death. Lots of death. What's not to love?

Recently, the PS3 and Xbox 360 each saw prequels for their leading franchises -- God of War: Ascension and Gears of War: Judgment. According to analyst firm Cowen & Company, the two GOWs failed to impress at retail.
There is nothing (and I mean nothing; no food, nor sex, nor drug) that I enjoy more than the act of sitting down next to another person whose company is pleasant and playing a game with them. Couch Campaign is an opportunity...
Some clever little birds went snooping around in Gears of War: Judgment's code, and ended up finding a fully playable, locked mode called Warzone.
Naturally the assumption is that the mode is another case of on-disc DLC, but ...

The Gears of War franchise has a history across its four titles of releasing some of the best cinematic trailers in gaming. Despite the series' reputation of being all about impossibly muscle-bound space marines murdering everything from behind chest-high walls, the trailers mostly focus on a more human element.
Yes, as adrenaline-fueled as the games are, the videos usually seem to effectively convey the bleaker side of war. Almost always accompanied by a moving song, these trailers have a knack for making the games feel decidedly more epic.
To celebrate this week's release of Gears of War: Judgment, let's take a look back at all of the franchise's trailers.
Underneath my gruff exterior beats the heart of a kid obsessed with LEGO. Even now, if I see some of those little bricks, I drop what I'm doing, and start building, ignoring whoever else is in the room. With that in mind, it should come as no surprise that I'm pretty excited for LEGO City: Undercover, which drops this week along with a whole bunch of other games.
Set in an open world and story-based, it sounds like my cup of tea, especially since my favorite LEGO game has to be LEGO Batman 2. And come on, the hero is called Chaise McCain, the name I wish I was now blessed with.
