Today I went to the CES Gaming Pavilion, which is usually full of despair and sadness, especially for a games blogger covering a tech show. To my surprise, there was a huge crowd there. Was there actually something coole...

Consistency, thy name is NOT Entertainment Weekly

So, yesterday we talked about how Entertainment Weekly voted Kirby's Epic Yarn the single worst game of 2010. While a bizarre choice in a year that saw games full of real technical, design and visual flaws, EW is entitled to ...

2D zombeat-'em-up Twin Blades hitting Xbox Indie channel

I'm becoming increasingly impressed with the French indie scene, and not only because my last name is Leray. Joining Meckensleep (Soul Bubbles) and Golgoth Studios (awesome-looking Toki and Joe & Mac remakes) as purveyor...

Scientology PWNED; its meaning AWOL
by Niero Gonzalez
With a name like Scientology Pwned, you'd think that the angry little shooter would eventually knock you over the head with a message, meaning, or political statement. For better or worse, the subject matter of the game is to kill as many Scientologists, special affairs agents, and sea orgs (never got that far) as possible. It plays like a Smash TV machine with a jammed joystick due to it's intentional lock-aim system so negotiating firing positions is a little awkward, but it's a quick free download and the music will make you long for the Legend of Kage. Indygamer sums it up:
The premise of Scientology Pwned is to essentially shoot everything in sight. The single unobstructed map has four enemy generators that create progressively tougher enemies. Use the arrow keys to move your character, and hold the control key to shoot. Your shooting direction will automatically lock when the control key is held down. Alternatively, the shift key can be held to lock your shooting direction when the control key is not held down. Music was composed by Jonathan Mak, creator of Everyday Shooter.
I'm with Simon on this one: "Can we have some games dealing with controversial subjects with some depth to them?" Columbine RPG is so 2006. You can download the free game from Zi-Xiao Liang's site (PC).

IGN's resident Ninty boy Matt C. hates Wii Weather
