My name is Bob and I'm an angry gamer


Feb 23

We all get frustrated playing video games. No one likes to lose and no one likes to run the same level over and over again trying to complete it. It sucks when a game isn’t going your way. How each of us reacts to ...

Shield video game: Attention whoever made this piece of crap


Jan 23
// Robert Summa
Licensed games, there's a reason they suck. Most of the time they are pathetic rush jobs and just an excuse to make an easy buck while never putting that much effort in quality control. I'm used to this, I understan...

Like Second Life? Go get a First Life instead


Jan 21
// Hamza CTZ Aziz
I don't like MMORPGs. I don't like the concept of it and I despise what it can do to a person. But I'd rather go play World of Warcraft than to ever get into Second Life. If I had to sacrifice my life for the gami...

Sims Stories: episodic standalones inbound


Jan 16
// Niero Gonzalez
Episodic content isn't going away. No, it is instead leaking into all kinds of franchises and into the dirty minds of those that ruined the concept of "expansion pack" for everyone. I'm pointing the finger a...

Jan 02
// Faith
Ask any gamer that watched G4TV before 2005 about the state of the station's programming now and expect him to spit on the ground, set a picture of Kevin Pereira on fire, and then curl up in ball to cry about the good ...

Gamer girls hate gamers girls; They must be on the rag


Nov 10
// Earnest Cavalli
As a gamer, it's not commonplace to come across women, especially attractive ones while playing a few rounds of Warsong Gulch or while 'fragging n00bz' in UT2K4. Compounding this problem is the fact that there...

No shock here, but Contra is broken


Nov 09

I don't really understand why every retro XBLA title that comes out has to have some bug or crazy crash or some other malfunction that really shouldn't exist after you plunk down your Microsoft points to buy it. Contra is t...

Nov 09
// Earnest Cavalli
Yahoo brings us the news that Microsoft has finally declared it's often-delayed, often-criticized new OS, Windows Vista, gold. It should be winking at you seductively from store shelves in early 2007. While many people com...

A view into EA's kick in your pouch


Nov 02

[Editor's note: After examining the "list" further, it is apparent the maker of the list has no clue what he or she is talking about. Clearly, I have none either. Still, it's worth it just for the Ducktales picture. --RS] ...

Despite crap games, EA raking in millions


Nov 02

Game bugs and glitches be damned! EA is still gonna turn a profit off the ignorant gamer who sees an EA logo and has a "must buy" light blaze inside their empty skull. According to Gamasutra, EA's profits have hit record hi...

EA continues to suck incredibly hard
