E3: When Vikings Attack is good for drunken party play

Okay, so State of Emergency wasn’t the GTA III-killer that Rockstar hyped it up to be. So, what? Sometimes it’s fun to play an embarrassingly dumb game about throwing things into other things.

E3: Body slamming men in tights from space in Injustice

E3: PS All-Stars Battle Royale hands-on: Drake, Big Daddy

Hands-on preview: PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale

The rumors were true, and now that I've played it, I'm glad. Sony has been working on a mashup fighting game that pits many of their first-party characters against each other in a Smash Bros. style four-player match. This bra...

Look how much fun I had playing Dragon Ball Z For Kinect!

As promised, here's the video of me playing Dragon Ball Z For Kinect following-up on my hands-on impressions. Just look at me go! Flailing away like an idiot. Don't I look so happy?! For the record, I'm not faking anything here. I really felt this miserable during the entire experience.

Becoming a ninja in Naruto Shippuden: UNS Generations

If there's one thing I know squat about, it’s the Naruto universe. It’s not because I don’t like anime -- I love it, but the boy in the orange track suit and all his ninja buddies never really appealed to...
