Unreal Tournament 3 and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. saved from GameSpy shutdown


Wait, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. has multiplayer?
Jun 02
// Alasdair Duncan
I've found it really encouraging that developers are willing to make their multiplayer games playable after the shutdown of GameSpy. There was quite a list of games that were going to be going offline but after some big names...

Call of Pripyat has never looked better
Jul 08
// Alasdair Duncan
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat may only be three years old but at the time of release it was already looking dated, mainly as it was still re-using assets and the engine from the first S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game. Now a modding team...

Mar 17
// Joshua Derocher
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. is a shooter, an RPG, a trading simulator, and a survival horror game all wrapped up in one. It has a rich and deep game world, but its depth has probably scared away most people from trying to tackle this ambi...

Nintendo president Iwata interviews Smash Bros Brawl Director: Part Two

Jan 23 // Jonathan Holmes
So Sakurai disses his kind of ex-boss in this latest interview. Big deal, right? Well, it gets better. On the second page, Iwata again starts to gush about how incredible Sakurai is and how much he loves the way he makes games. It's cool to see a boss, or an ex-boss, or whatever Iwata is to Sakurai, say such nice things to his underling. Iwata even calls him "Sakurai-Kun" at one point, which in so many words is the Japanese way of saying "Sakurai, my beloved little buddy." Again, it's all quite endearing, and positions Iwata into in the role of a "good guy" boss/ex-boss. What's strange about it is the way Sakurai reacts. He never calls Iwata "Iwata-San", the customary sign of respect for an elder. He makes some token compliments about the Wii and Wii Sports and Wii Fit, but none of them seem particularly genuine. Mostly Sakurai just tries to change the subject after every compliment he gets from Iwata. It reminds me of times ex-girlfriends have called me and said "Didn't we used to have fun together? I think you're so cute! Do you think I'm cute?", with my only options for responses being statements like "I always though Gizmo from Gremlins was cute, but also sort of disgusting. His lips and nose were so god damn shiny all the time. Why was his muzzle always so wet? Do you know?"It comes to a head in the interview when Iwata pretty much goes berserk. It's a total love avalanche. Quoteth Iwata- "My thoughts on expanding the gaming population, targeting gamers age five to ninety-five or refusing to think of gamers in terms of age, sex or gaming experience…I think the roots of the ideals I espouse are tied to our experience together, and I feel they were inspired by you." Wow.Sakurai's response?  "Speaking of shared roots, we were both surprised in regards to the similarities between the direction of the Smash Bros. Brawl network and the Wi-Fi connection proposed by Nintendo." No "Thank you." No "I love you, too." Not even a "Yeah, I learned some stuff from you also... I guess." Just a quick "Oh really? That reminds me, we both like ham sandwiches, don't we? Lets talk about that instead." Am I reading too much into this, or does the dynamic between these two have a Fatal Attraction flavor to it?
