Nazi shenanigans

The latest miserable press surrounding Ubisoft's trashy DRM concerned news that Anno 2070 would confuse a simple hardware change with an entirely new PC -- a real problem when you can only install the game three times before ...
Graphing calculator programmer Brandon Wilson likes to tinker with machines and post his findings online, for no reason other than entertainment and curiosity. Recently, he turned his attention to Skylanders, the unique game ...
Following in the sleazy footsteps of Sony and Electronic Arts, Microsoft has become the latest company to restrain one of the few legal recourses available to screwed customers. Seizing upon the opportunity to cram ...
Quantic Dream CEO Guillaume de Fondaumiere has joined the ranks of the idiotic in whining about used games. Wait, aren't we supposed to only play Heavy Rain once, right? Surely he of all people should understand why it g...
The discovery of a completely balls-mental Nazi shooter known as Reich caused an excited stir within the gamer community, but the status of the game has been fragile at best. Sometimes canceled, sometimes not, Ignition is ada...
A new class action suit has been fired at GameStop over allegations of illegal data reaping. Melissa Arechiga has accused the retailer of storing personal information on its customers without their knowledge or permissio...
While most US gamers were mildly pleased with the 3DS' $249.99 price point, those perpetually unfortunate European gamers are less than thrilled. Nintendo UK, however, has defended the projected £219-£230 pri...
British politician and lying hypocrite Keith Vaz has claimed that he's never been against videogames, despite once claiming that PSP games let you rape people and blaming the murder of a British schoolboy on Manhunt, even whe...
If you choose to wear a Call of Duty: Black Ops logo that shares similarities with a certain equilateral cross that enjoys a certain bond with a certain group of jackbooted individuals, you better not be doing it on Xbox Live...
PR firm Reverb Communications has come under fire from the FTC for getting its employees to anonymously write reviews on iTunes without disclosing their working relationship with the title. The company was sneakily giving its...
You know it, I know it, everyone knows that Arnold "violent games are evil but please keep watching Terminator films" Schwarzenegger is a ridiculous hypocrite. Despite it being common knowledge, however, videogame industry me...
Evil Attorney General Michael Atkinson is the man solely responsible for Australia having to pay more for less content. He is the man standing in the way of his country joining the real world and having an 18+ age rating, the...
It finally happened. Someone made a Half-Life 2 mod about Nazis, dinosaurs, and Nazi dinosaurs. Sure, the main reason why I want to even give it a try is incredibly shallow, but even still, it's got dinosaurs who moonlight as...
Germany hates videogames, is the message the German government seems to want to communicate. Every sensational crime committed in the country gets pinned on "killer games," and a ridiculous amount of titles have been banned o...
If you thought that Pandemic's The Saboteur was all about brothels and boobs, then you're going to be faintly disappointed, because apparently there's more to it than that. While there's plenty of wartime flesh on display, yo...
Modern Warfare 2 may be one of the biggest, most mainstream games ever to be released, but it's also been the most controversial. Aside from the whole PC debacle, Infinity Ward has also generated much debate over the infamous...
Microsoft is really making a serious push into retail, as evidenced by what I've seen today at the opening of their first retail store. One of the biggest issues with software sales at retail is the real estate that it takes ...
As it stands, iPhone App games have gone unrated, with developers able to submit their games for Apple's approval and nobody else's. In Australia, where the ratings board has an iron grip on videogame content and doesn't want...
This is simply depressing. The pathetic treatment of videogames in Germany has already jumped the shark several times, with the German authorities aping their intolerant forefathers and banning anything they don't like in the...
Wow ... I know that Sony can go a little nuts when it comes to weird PS3 commercials, but this Chilean ad really takes home the prize. The commercial portrays a gamer giving blood to a Nazi officer. Seriously, Sony is telling...
The Saboteur is going to make World War II games a little different. It's not an FPS, for one thing, nor does it simply place you in famous battles and say, "Shoot the Nazis." You instead take on the role of a bitte...
Most people who aren't German politicians will tell you that Germany's reaction to so-called "killer games" is childish and ludicrous. Gamers, the gaming press and developers have all voiced dismay over Germany's tr...
They've had all they can stands, they can't stands no more. German officials have been having a field day in targeting the games industry over the past few years, banning products at whim like capricious Gods. It would seem, ...
I'll be honest, this really isn't too relevant to a lot of people, but I just want the excuse to talk about this game for a second. Moe Moe Niji Taisen Deluxe is a tactical role-playing game in which various anime females wit...
A German ex-politician has been charged with invoking violent acts against fascists after producing an anti-Nazi poster with a picture of Bomberman on it. The poster shows Bomberman holding a bomb disguised as a cake, with th...
Edmund McMillen is a non-stop productivity machine. He just finished Spewer, has Super Meat Boy in the works for WiiWare, and as it turns out, he's also almost done with Gish 2 and an action/comedy/platformer by the name of H...
I really want Super Meat Boy to come out. The game has great art direction, killer old-school difficulty, a Don Hertzfeldt-flavored sense of humor, and is planned to feature 12 indie game characters in multi-player mode. An i...
Electronic Arts has revealed some brand new screenshots and artwork for Pandemic-developed Nazi-punching game The Saboteur. Taking the open-world style of game to Nazi-occupied Paris is an interesting idea, and it looks like ...
If there is one thing you know you will be able to do in a Wolfenstein game it's kill Nazis good and dead. Now the new Wolfenstein heading our way has plenty of fresh and new ways to kill Nazi's dead that usually involve some...
It's hardly surprising that World War II has been inspiration for so many videogames. That conflict was, after all, perhaps the only truly morally clear war humanity has ever had, where reasonable people can see an obvious go...
Many players are, understandably, put off by World War II games, thanks to their over saturation and endless exploitation. With that in mind, Wolfenstein's creative director Eric Biessman wants it to be known that the latest ...
Today, we received a furious email from an incensed Animal Crossing fan, absolutely horrified by the fact that a new  update to the game has censored "bad" words. For Christina and her friend, there was no grea...
I really don't want to take the easy route and make Nazi comparisons to modern day German officials, but their desire to ban certain forms of media really make Godwin's Law difficult to resist. The recent school shooting has ...
Remember when you were a kid and thought that a Nazi lived under your bed, so your parents had to scare it away? Maybe that was just me, but I know that at least one person still grew up with a fear of Ze Germanz, and that wa...
GameTrailers, by way of video podcast "Invisible Walls," has ripped the ESRB to shreds following the forced removal of Fallout 3 content from the site. Using the kind of language that has killed elderly women, edi...
If you're a big fan of user levels in LittleBigPlanet, the advice of the day seems to be this -- don't get too attached to them. Reports have been coming in of levels being "moderated" without warning. That's a poli...
It's really easy to make Nazi references about the German government, but when its ministers seem so intent on repressing the freedom of media, it's hard not to wonder if fascism in German politics died with ol' Addy H. Bavar...
With a brand new Wolfenstein on the cards, one could be forgiven for salivating at the thought of tackling the somewhat controversial Third Reich frontman, Adolf Hitler. Unfortunately, the Ron Mael lookalike will not be putti...
Simply amazing. Yet another moron has come out of the woodwork to jump on the "games are evil" train and share his myopic, frightened views with the world. The real kicker here is that he suggests having a "gam...
The Internet was rife with accusations and outraged screams this weekend as it was suggested that GameTrailers had been caught red-handed favoring the Xbox 360 over the PlayStation 3 thanks to a GRID video that wrongly labe...
