The guilty pleasures of gaming

The word hardcore when applied to gamers tends to paint a picture of a person who plays games like Halo, Grand Theft Auto, and Gears of War, not someone who sits with his little Nintendo DS and plays hours of Cooking Mama or ...

My moves are killer, son!

Behold the mighty power of the Dance Dance Revolution. With the sacred moves passed down from geek to geek, a young man will face his enemies and move in time with the music. Watch as enemies cower before the might of DDR Kid! Another sweet video from the guys at New Golden Boys who brought us the True Gaming Legends video series. [Thanks Eric!]

Hackers continue to ruin Valve?

I've said this a few times, but back in college I lived and breathed Counter-Strike. In fact, I'd even say I majored in the damn game. Well, one of the biggest turn-offs to me, after a while, was the rampant hacking a...

Remind bedridden children what they are missing with new NiGHTS game photo
Remind bedridden children what they are missing with new NiGHTS game
by Chad Concelmo

OK, let’s see a show of hands: Who is already getting sick of hearing about NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams on the Wii? Alright, very interesting. Now, who is sick of it primarily because of the 16,000 posts I have done about it in the last few days? Wow, I knew it.

Well, sorry to add to the overexposure, but some new information about the game was just revealed and, I swear, some of it is almost mildly interesting.

According to SEGA of Europe, NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams will use the Wii’s Forecast Channel to change the scenery to match what the real world seasons are like outside. While this is nothing revolutionary, the fact that the designers are branching out and trying some different things is refreshing. But will this enhance/affect the gameplay at all aside from looking cool? Probably not. But it’s a unique addition to what is shaping up to be a promising game.

Still not convinced? Hit the jump for more gameplay info -- including the greatest/dirtiest sounding feature yet -- the dolphin mask!

[Thanks, Chris]

PS3 in UK laughs at Titanic

I admit, it's not looking good for the PlayStation 3 right now. It's one thing to have sort-of-steady sales in the States, but the PlayStation bread was always nicely buttered in the UK and without that support, even ...
