We got a review code in today for a hidden-object game called Frankenstein: Master of Death. Darren expressed tentative interest, noting that it looks "terrible and fun at the same time?" Naturally, I went to investigate. Please send help.

We warned you.
Sigh.

Kenner's range of amazing Aliens toys was, scientifically, the greatest thing about the nineties. These action figures took the idea of Xenomorphs inheriting genetic traits from their hosts -- as seen in Alien 3 -- and ran wi...

This isn't exactly news, but I still thought you'd want to hear about it. Nationally broadcast radio show On The Media just put out an episode about videogames, and it's pretty amazing. A recap of the Atari/Nintendo/Sega-side...
The common image of the average GameFAQs community member is that of an adolescent, perpetually lonely, squirty little virgin who makes nightly love to his cardboard cut-out of Nathan Drake. According to an anonymous (obvious...
I'm not even sure that this is a story, but it has two things going for it. The first is that it involves breasts and since we're all prepubescent guys here (and that one lesbian) we care about breasts a lot. The second is th...
I realize that it is quite possible that literally no one cares about the fact that you can change your visor color in Halo: Reach. In fact, I am having trouble caring. But for some reason this little bit of minutia has caugh...

Xbox Live Europe may not have Major Nelson, but it does have two handsome chaps who go by the name of "MrPointyHead" and "SuperKaylo." They are very much the PJ & Duncan of videogames and I think they do a good job, even...
