Back in February, Zen Studios released three tables based on the Star Wars series, adding to the already vast library of tables for Pinball FX2.

I don't get the widespread outrage over so called "casual," simple-minded games. I can spend an afternoon plugging away at the most time-consuming and complex RPG imaginable, and if Angry Birds is thrown in every now and then, so be it. Yes, I'm reviewing an Angry Birds game. Deal with it.
Electronic Arts is a risk taker. A boundary pusher. Indeed, EA Games chief Patrick Soderlund, speaking to MCV, apparently, "points to Star Wars and Mirror’s Edge 2 as proof the firm is still willing to take risks on ne...

DICE is as excited about Star Wars: Battlefront as you are, Ellen Page is pissed about Ellie in The Last Of Us looking like her, Saints Row IV is too explicit for Australia, and Suda51 gives his stance on sexuality in Killer Is Dead.
