Steve Jobs Hates Pr0n!

http://gawker.com/5539717/ I would never have guessed that the Jobmeister wasn't a fan of the "dirty sanchez", "DP", Bukkake, "Guzzling", "salad tossing", or a "Man + Man Threesome."

IW MW2 wont let you make mods but they will steal them...

So after some searching I came across a very interesting fact. IW held a contest for PC gamers to create new maps for MW. The maps would be sent in and they would name their winners. It appears that winners were never ann...

PC and Piracy. Setting the Record Straight.

After reading another Jim Sterling Post on the Infinity Ward MW2 debacle, I really wanted to pipe up and bash it. But I couldn't. It definitely had an anti-PC tone to it, but the information (albeit limited and short) was p...

PC vs. Console Gaming; What Do We Really Care About?
