I'm not fond of the Classic Controller. Not in the slightest. And as much as I love the Wii remote and nunchuk set-up for some games, it's far from the ideal way to play titles like Tatsunoko vs. Capcom and Super Smash Bros. ... read
One of the things that I love about the Japanese school of game development is that it allows for retail based home console titles to be about anything. It's similar to the difference between Manga and Western comi... read
It looks like due to an issue with the licensing of Michael Jackson's classic hit "Wanna Be Startin' Something," GTA: Vice City has been pulled from pretty much every digital PC outlet out there, including Steam. As any Vice ... read
