My name is Bob and I'm an angry gamer

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 ...

Japan gets Naruto Wii next week. Care?
by Papa Niero

Naruto may be the butt of every Japanator joke, but the popular anime franchise does have a huge following. Underachieving children everywhere will eat it up!  This new trailer, however craptacular in video quality, does show some differences between it and the Gamecube version such as the minigame montage, what I believe to be new environments, and updated character models. Love it hate it Naruto: Clash of Ninja EX is poised to take the seat as the best fighting game available on the Wii (however temporary).

Even if you detest this game on principle, I recommend taking a look at the video demonstration of the gameplay portion. Seems like fun arcade action, but how precise could that possibly be? For better or worse, whiskerface bombs Tokyo on Feb 22. Tell me that isn't a perfect name for your next emo band.

Shield video game: Attention whoever made this piece of crap

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

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

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...

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