Sony has claimed that only the most hardcore PS3 gamers use PlayStation Home. That sounds like a failure, given the services casual, Second Life-esque dressing, but if Sony wants to spin the fact that a comparatively&nbs...
It looks the vague report from Nintendo customer service that Xenoblade (also known as Monado: Beginning of the World) is still slated for release in the United States isn't confirmation enough for some people. A group of fan...

Tecmo Koei's Japanese office building has been attacked by a particularly hateful fanboy who doesn't seem to appreciate the company's games.  The remarks spraypainted on the building are remarkably bitter and hateful. Su...
Disclaimer -- I wasn't originally going to post this video. I shot it the same week that Sagat and Pals review Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, and within a few days after the game launched, most of the stuff about on how Marvel Vs. Cap...
As with any previous PC exclusive that goes multiplatform, Crysis 2 has come under fire from the PC elitist crowd who bemoan the "dumbing down" of the game and declare -- without evidence -- that the game was made for console...
Like a a lot of people, I have a very special place in my heart-container for The Legend of Zelda series. On top of that, I'm also a sucker for 80s pop-culture. That's probably why I made a teenage girl-ish giggle-squeak whe...
Remember that trailer a few monts back for that fan-made Half-Life movie called Beyond Black Mesa? The full short is now out and here it is for your viewing pleasure. Personally, I didn't think too much of it. I like the pro...

Whether they intend to or not, game makers lie. Sometimes they do it on purpose and sometimes things just happen that they have no control over. I still feel for Capcom's Shinji Mikami when he said that he would commit suicid...
