Buy the Kratos Fury Slurpee at 7-11, get free GoW III DLC

If you like videogames, you probably visit 7-11 fairly often -- or so Sony and 7-11 hope, anyway. Ad Age reports that the companies have joined with Mountain Dew, the nectar of the gods as far as gamers are concerned, to put ...

Final Fantasy XIII bringing e-commerce to sci-fantasy

[As posted on Japanator] Many RPGs claim to be based in some kind of high-technology science fiction-y setting, but are surprisingly devoid of the things that would likely make up a real-life future. Some RPG folks still use ...

Happy birthday to Goozex, they turn two today!
by 8BitBrian

Goozex sure has grown up before our eyes. Whenever there was a sighting of Bargain Bin Laden, Goozex was there with the game on the cheap. It's a service I love and cherish, and I'm glad to see that the site is going strong as ever.

If you've never tried the site before: do it. It's a fantastic alternative to Gamestop, as you'll actually get a decent value for the games you ship out, and pay a cheaper price for what you get. The site's already exchanged more than $2.1 million worth of games -- a good majority of that in this year.

A good majority of my collection has come from Goozex -- trading in a newer title that I was disappointed with, and picking up ten older titles for the PS1 and PS2 is a distinct possibility. Only the words of Chad can describe it properly: "Amaaaaaaazing!"

Enough of my throbbing erection for the site. The boys also sent us a couple of lists, including the most requested, most traded, and most offered games for the first half of '08. Here's the top traded games:

1. Mass Effect – Xbox 360
2. Gears of War - Xbox 360
3. Assassin’s Creed - Xbox 360
4. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare - Xbox 360
5. Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune – PlayStation 3
6. The Orange Box - Xbox 360
7. BioShock - Xbox 360
8. Halo 3 - Xbox 360
9. Resistance: Fall of Man – PlayStation 3
10. Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction – PlayStation 3

Interesting to see that Resistance is still traded actively amongst PS3 owners, since it was a launch title and all. After the jump are the other statistics for the top requested and top offered games. I hope that Jonathan, Mark, and everyone else at Goozex are enjoying the high life, and that their success will be continued. Also, if you haven't already, check out Nick Chester over on the Goozcast!

Arsenal FC-branded controllers coming your way, courtesy of Mad Catz

As an American, I know very little about soccer (for simplicity’s sake, that’s what I’m going to call it). Most of my closest friends played the sport when they were kids — even the uncoordinated nerds...

Coolmasters new CMX cases make gamers drool

In the PC gaming world, there are about a million choices on what case to buy. Do you buy a store bought PC? Not me. Do you build it? Of course. Do you cut and slave to mod out your own case so that you have something origina...

Japan puts the 'rampant consumerism' back in Christmas with Pokemon decorations

Courtesy of Siliconera we bring you that picture above from (where else?) the Land of the Rising Sun.Yes, it's funny that Pokémon are so famous, and Piplup is adorable, but I think the real point here is how utterly ir...

Unreal Tournament 3 plot teaser ... Unreal Tournament 3 has a plot?

Recently we've had a string of strikingly original FPS games. BioShock introduced a whole generation of gamers to Objectivist theory, and Portal taught even the most jaded of us that finding true love is a close as the near...

G8brand brings it on with daring new apparel for gamers

I've seen enough cheesy gamer shirts to last me a lifetime. That's why a company like G8 catches my attention by taking a different type of approach. The concept here is both brand-aware and dynamic - a more understated look ...

Resident Evil: Extinction trailer: NEMESIS RULES BARTER TOWN!

It would be redundant of me to go over the entire history of game-to-movie adaptations to prove to each of you mathematically why this movie will suck, but I find it interesting that film companies are demonstrating a new s...

Marks and Spencer to the Xbox 360: Do not want!

To be honest, Marks & Spencer is known more for giving upper class wannabes a place to shop than providing gaming hardware, but its recent decision to decline sale of the Xbox 360 can be nothing but a damaging blow to Mic...

Geometry Wars Galaxies on the Wii looks kinda sorta just like Geometry Wars

Vivendi has released some new screens of the Wii's new killer-app, Geometry Wars Galaxies, and there's definitely a few things to note if you're paying attention.  First of all, it pretty much looks like Geom...

Hitman the movie the trailer; originality is the new pink

Hitman, the game, explicitly promotes murder as a means to one's own ends, and as such likely drives parent's groups, Jack Thompson and anyone else inclined to affix scarlet typeface to the misfits of society into th...

Squenix Online Store opens US branch, in response, America opens a Starbucks

Square-Enix is a company waist-deep in adorable mascots and eyeball-deep in Japanese folk who, instead of eyeballs, have constantly rotating, glowing dollar signs (yen signs?). As such, the good folks at the Squenix Maibatsu ...
