Microsoft loves us, yes they do

Msoftswag.jpg So I just got back from this great little event Microsoft held at Blvd in NYC to celebrate their upcoming holiday titles. The event was nicely laid out with free booze and a ton of games set up all over. But I had only one thing on my mind: Gears of War. After making the rounds and chatting it up with a few of the other gaming journos I knew there (even Chris Grant from Joystiq), I found out where Gears was and took my Stella and parked my ass there the entire night. Highlights of my Gears of War multiplayer killing spree: the curb stomp. I can't tell you how f'ing satisfying it is to do that to the opposing player. Each time I would do it to someone in the room, I physically got up and yelled, "Curb stomp bitch!" Oh, what a glorious night. Thank you Microsoft. Above is the sweet little swag bag they handed out as we left. Check out that wireless headset, mmmm. Now excuse me while I rock sh*t in Gears.

Wear the carcass of Chester Cheetah in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare

I was prepared to get mildly annoyed at this Cheetos partnership with Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, despite the fact that it's not the first time the game has dabbled in brand-sponsored character variants. (There were ...more

Some Team Fortress 2 characters join the Super Time Force Ultra team

Well, looks like I'll be playing Super Time Force all over again when it hits Steam. Why? Well aside from the new challenge levels and alternate-dimension powers, there's three new playable characters. Two of which are from ...more
