January NPD: 360 leads, Black Ops still on top


Feb 20
// Jonathan Holmes
After another December as the U.S.'s top selling home console, it looks like the Wii is on the decline again. Last month, the console was outsold by the Xbox 360 by about 60,000 units. That's a +32% gain for the 360 compared ...

Blogger says the Wii will be "dead by 2009", rabid fans plot his death


Apr 23
// Colette Bennett
Blogger Kezins is either incredibly brave or made of steel plating, but even if he's a bit of both, he's drawn plenty of ire with a recent post on Kezins.com about how he feels the Wii will fall into total obscurity by 2009 u...

Spike TV books Foo Fighters for the 2007 VGAs

// Jordan Devore
The current state of videogames on cable TV is poor at best. Rarely does the medium get coverage outside of mainstream news reporting on the latest killing spree and then getting an "expert" to play the blame game. ...

Clive Barker calls Roger Ebert on his crap

Clive Barker was one of my literary heroes long before he entered the gaming universe. Rarely is such a perverse and twisted individual simultaneously intelligent and beautifully spoken, but Clive's no stranger to this mixtur...

Old Forbes dude calls Microsoft's gaming attempts a 'disastrous endeavour'


Apr 20
// Robert Summa
For most of us that have an Xbox 360 (that works), we love it. In fact, I'd say for most gamers nowadays in the North America regions, the 360 has more or less become the next-gen console of choice -- maybe mostly due to ...

Tons of new Lair gameplay footage; let me hear you say "meh!"

Apr 13 // Chad Concelmo
Is it just me or does everything just seem very blah in the graphics department (which is a huge shocker since the game comes from Factor 5)? Environments feel way too barren and the fire, which you would think would be the main focus of, I don’t know, a dragon game looks subpar. And while I would usually flip out in excitement over a dragon mounted knight jumping off his reptilian steed and plummeting towards the Earth while stabbing an enemy in the face, um, no offense Lair, but we have kind of already been there, done that.What do you think? Does this new gameplay footage leave less to be desired? Or are you excited about Lair despite some of its shortcomings?

As I was playing Hotel Dusk the other day, I was thinking that Kyle Hyde is a bit of a dick. Not bad enough to actually annoy you, but enough for you to notice he could probably use an enema. It set off a conversation between...
