The Daily Hotness: Ryu's a bit bitter


Mar 23

The Daily Hotness: Haggar vs. Sentinel

This Armored Core V customization walkthrough is tasty


Mar 09
I... f*ck. It's Armored Core V, guys. I remember buying my PS1 way back when, opening the packed-in demo disk (the one with Croc: Legend of the Gobbos, Parappa the Rapper, and I.Q), and falling in love with Armored... read

Go behind the scenes of The Witcher 2's sleek CG trailer

Blacklight Retribution beta gets a new map/trailer


Mar 07
There are a lot of free-to-play FPS on the market. Seriously, there are tons. Like, you could throw a stone out into the wilds of the internet and odds are, if it doesn't hit porn, it'll hit a f2p shooter. Regardless, develo... read

Rock Band DLC adds that sweet, sweet Everclear


Mar 02
You'd think that, after years of music games, the potential for DLC would start to diminish. Also, you'd be mostly correct. Next Tuesday, three more tepid tracks will be released for Rock Band 3 and, well, they're from E... read

The Witcher 2 gets a Kingslaying new trailer


Feb 27
I really want to play The Witcher 2. It's sitting in my Steam library waiting for me to finish its predecessor, staring at me. It's begging me to just skip ahead and in my heart I want to.  The newest trailer for the th... read

Study: Wii doesn't make fat kids not fat

Double Fine Kickstarter update 2 and Ron Gilbert's wisdom


Feb 26
We all knew Double Fine would do alright with their Kickstarter campaign, but I'm not sure we all expected it to blow up like it has. With over $2,228,000 raised so far, it's kind of a big deal. In response, Double Fine... read

The Daily Hotness: Dorkly's Dog Park


Feb 24
I don't often enjoy Dorkly's stuff. They do good work and I can appreciate that, but it's generally not for me. This one featuring a dog park full of game characters and their pets, however, is just gold.  We went hands... read

The Daily Hotness: A life devoid of the Millennium Falcon


Feb 23

HeroClix Online expands with Thor and Green Lantern

Techland retreads some ground with Mad Riders

Techland's 2010 off-road racing game Nail'd was a bit of a surprise in that it was actually a pretty ok game. Their new project, Mad Riders, seems like a safe bet for them considering that it's basically Nail'd... again.&nbs... read

Fray hits alpha and gets a new trailer


Feb 18
Projects like Fray are part of why I'm so excited to finally own a gaming PC. (I know the game isn't breaking new ground, visually, but my laptop runs on the blood, sweat, and tears of a finely tuned team of mice.) The ... read

David Jaffe wants you to shoot his truck


Feb 12
I love the idea of promoting a new game release with a contest; it's a pretty foolproof concept. I definitely like the idea of being allowed to shoot Sweet Tooth's ice cream truck with a machine gun. Sounds perfect, rig... read
