Prison Architect finds a new jail cell in Steam

Valve's Early Access section on Steam is something the platform has desperately needed for some time. Previously, games which were ostensibly in beta or alpha (like the completely unfinished Towns) made their way onto St...

Preview: Prison Architect leaves me a broken, guilty man
by Fraser Brown

I've been designing some prisons recently. Well, I can scratch another item of my list of sentences I never expected to utter. I've been running them, too. Actually, facilitating the running of them, more often than not. I suspect that actual prison architects have a lot less hands-on time with functioning penitentiaries, but I don't know any to ask. 

I'm not sure why, but I thought it might be a good laugh, this whole Prison Architect lark. It's probably rather telling about my lack of experience with the prison system that I actually expected whimsy. I feel a bit foolish now. Like someone drinking toilet wine.

Public Access Destructoid: What games do porn stars play?

Since the induction of the Internet, I, like most of the planet, have used it for porn. Things have since changed and people use the Internet for gaming. Anyway, that's related enough, so I figured I'd visit some porn stars....

Woman bought Live Vision camera for boy, offered 'free show'

The human penis is well-known to be instinctively drawn to Xbox Live Vision cameras, as anyone who has spent enough time (an hour or so) playing Uno can tell you. With that idea in mind, a recently convicted Ohio woman purcha...

Government denies prisoners have ever had PS3s

A few days ago we railed at Rye Hill Prison after it was reported that its inmates had somehow been given access to PlayStation 3 systems and were using them to communicate with the outside world. The government has since den...

Prisoners using PS3 Wi-Fi to chat to friends

We've written about the stupidity of the British prison service and its insistence on letting inmates have the latest videogames before, but this about takes the cake. PS3s were already supposed to be banned due to a prisoner...

Super Mario Galaxy backup edition - I'm telling!

We already heard about ripped copies of Super Mario Galaxy making it onto the 'net, and now some silly person is showing off his Super Mario Galaxy backup running on his consumer Wii. The video maker goes out of his way to s...
