EA invents new meaning of irony

Are you sitting down? I'll wait ... OK. Look what this fool from EA had to say about Gears of War. Keep in mind, we're talking about EA, Electronic Arts: Alain Tascan, general manager for EA Montreal, has revealed that he ...

Miss Video Game submissions rolling in; competition both fierce and pure comedy gold

Our very own Faith isn't the only one pining for the Miss Video Game crown. No, there are plenty of other pleasant-smelling thong-wearing females cat fighting for the crown. In fact, all their profiles are now online and ready to be mocked and pleasured to -- all at the same time! I'll have to share with you some of my favorites so far:

Gears multiplayer changes could make game even more awesomer than it is now!

If there's one single flaw in Gears of War for the Xbox 360, it is that the multiplayer matchmaking scrapes the bottom of the evolutionary ladder. By not offering up ranked team play, it goes against the grain of successful...

PS3 suckage continues; shareholders seen jumping off very tall buildings

NBA Live 07 cancelled; one more reason not to get PS3 now

EA loves money. In fact, they love money so much that they know not to release a title before they can cash in substantially with its release. Thus, the profit gods of Electronic Arts have deemed NBA Live 07 completely unfi...

Elite Beat Agents: Watch how much I suck

Nintendo gave me Yoshi's eggs

After a long long dreary day here in NYC, I finally came back to my office and opened up a wonderful package from Nintendo. As you can see, this sweet (literally) swag package is for Yoshi's Island DS. Check out those yummy eggs. I wonder what they taste like. But should I ruin dinner?

The 1UP PS3 reception in video form

You know, I used to really really care that I didn't get my PlayStation 3 yet. A video like this would just make me go all bat nuts and crap. But now, thanks to my beloved Gears, I really don't care anymore. So, you can keep your PS3 1UP, I don't care! Really I don't. OK, maybe I do care. Where the hell is my PS3 Sony!!!!

Cute Japanese chicks love the Wii

You know, I overheard the other day on the streets of NYC some dude telling another dude that the DS is for girls. Is it possible the Wii will suffer the same stigma? Possibly. What does that have to do with this video? Probably nothing. But aren't these two adorable? Don't you want to kidnap them and trap them in your basement for a month or two? I know I do.
