Psssh! What is this? Smash Bros.?

[Header by Elemental-Aura] Despite Allistair Pinsof's well-reasoned arguments against PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale's being a Smash Bros. clone, it's just so damn blatant! I mean, just look at it! LOOK AT IT! How can it...

No kidding! Princess Peach is vapid and easy

This is not reflective of actual female behavior. Oh wait... Let me be serious for a minute and say that I totally respect women. This is all kicks and giggles at the expense of a fictional character. Neither I nor the video...

Frank West and Strider spotted in Marvel Vs. Capcom 3?

I'm so far from being convinced that this pic is legit. If you're going to leak unreleased content for a game, why would you ever leak just one pic, and why would that pic be of just the upper part of the screen? Why not shoo...

Settle down, crazy people: Red 5's MMO is still on

Red 5 Studios, which is probably more known for being home to a number of ex-Blizzard folks than anything else, is working on a mysterious MMO of some fashion. No, they aren't ready to talk specifics yet, but they do want to ...

How royalty games: Queen of England given a gold Wii photo
How royalty games: Queen of England given a gold Wii
by Colette Bennett

You know, I might write about games for a living, but no one has ever brought me a fancy console as a gift. That is an honor most likely reserved for celebrities and other such non-commoners, such as the Queen of England, who recently recieved the gift of a gold-plated Wii along with a copy of BIG Family Games from THQ. Rather clever of them, as it brings the game and the Wii even further into the public eye (as if it needed any help, right?).

At any rate, it just looks like a Zelda Wii to me. I guess when I see gold stuff my mind immediately reverts to the first moment I held that original golden NES cartridge in my hands. I wonder what the Queen thinks of this, anyway. Will she play with it after teatime or will it gather dust? I guess we'll have to watch the news to see.

Carnival Games: all the fun of a carnival sans the constant fear of dying

I know there must have been a time in my life when I enjoyed going to the carnival. Don’t get me wrong, I would still kill a man for some funnel cake, but nowadays, when I think of a carnival, all I imagine are scary cl...

New Witcher pictures & swag contest
by Niero Gonzalez

Five new images of Atari's upcoming The Witcher were released today along with a swag contest for some gothic shirts sure to irriate your grandmother. The fantasy  Action-RPG is scheduled for a third quarter release this year on the PC and will feature six (stereotypical) heroic classes with 250 different abilities. The character design and atmospheric detail do seem quite impressive, though. There's a very recent interview with CD Projekt but it's unfortunately spoken in an Elven tounge.

I snuck in one 2004 image from IGN into the gallery so you can see how much work they've put into it since. Hopefully it's nothing like The Craft but still has Fairuza Balk in it. Hit the gallery for some Hipple nipple action.
