If there's one thing a bunch of hormone-addled, masculinity-obsessed, spiteful Xbox Live players want to do, it's sit around a table playing board games. Esdevium Games has tapped into this cultural demand with Gears of War: The Board Game

Four players team up to complete randomly created mission objectives. There are over 200 cards, 75 tokens and 30 little plastic figures that bring the thrill of Gears to your dining room table. Using the cards, players can perform classic actions such as taking cover or using a chainsaw bayonet to rip a Locust in half. 

Sounds lame, geeky, and ridiculous ... so naturally, I want it. Game's due out next month.

One more time: Dead Nation hits PS Vita later today

Cult of the Wind might just be the funniest arena shooter

A third-person shooter in which combatants are humans pretending to be airplanes -- this is Cult of the Wind. Despite the usual fears that something like this will lose its audience not long after launching, I'm so charmed b...more
