Bear with me here; my metal knowledge begins and ends with the word "metal." So Ronnie James Dio was going to be in Brütal Legend, since he's a metal legend and all and the game is about metal music. Also a met...

Sorry SNES fans, but do you recall all of the great games that the Sega Genesis used to offer? A few come to mind, but one of my personal favorites was an old EA title called Road Rash. It was one of those games that two peop...

When I picked up an Xbox 360 at launch, I was giddy over the idea of achievement points. I even vowed that I would not stop playing a game until I had completed all of the achievement tasks; this quickly went to hell when I f...
I'm not this drooling Tenacious D/Jack Black fan, and I'm not exactly sure what the connection between him and Tim Schafer's Double Fine is, but I'll tell you what: This trailer for the upcoming Brutal Legend is ... man. Wow....
So how am I supposed to do write-up on a Guitar Hero game? Everyone has either played it or know of the concept -- you press five colored buttons, flip a switch up and down and pretend you're actually playing a guitar. Actual...
It looks like the rumors were true, for the most part anyway! Activision just sent over a press release announcing 17 new tracks which add up to about 60 tracks in total. Comparing this to the rumor list though, there's still...

Normally I'm pretty adverse to machinima. Overall, the genre is stuffed full of derivative, poorly attempted pieces that only show devotion to a project, and not nearly enough actual talent. The above video, though, com...
