Pew Review: The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings

For new readers: I used to do a lot of "Pew Reviews" on the cblogs, and after becoming an editor it became a bit silly to post reviews on the cblogs instead of the front page. Hence why you haven't seen one in quite a while. ...

Pew Review: Alan Wake

Although there are plenty of reviews out there, it's worth looking at Alan Wake one more time in case you aren't sure if you should pick it up tomorrow. For this review, I'm going to play with a new format as well. Since I'm ...

Sweet Mother Of God, It's Time For A Belated Secret Santa Post

Look at that. That's right, look at that shit. Your jealousy knows no bounds. You can only stare at the pure, unrequited glory that is a 50 Cent: Blood On The Sand Ultra Special Edition. I mean, just look at that ball-smash...

Love/Hate: The Games as Art Argument

If it weren't for the majority of people who were born at the end of Generation X and the beginning of Generation Y, this debate wouldn't exist. I say this because we were the first generation to be brought up having wide a...

Love/Hate: Super Mario World

Let me get this out there right now. There is in my mind, no better example of a platforming game and no "Mario" game that comes as close to perfection than Super Mario World for the Super Nintendo. I love this game like no...

A Weird Kid's Top 10 -- Arcade Beat 'Em Ups

The Pirate Radio Station in 'Bring Down the Sky' and FOX News

Words -- and in this case, a quote -- need to be snipped to salvage tone or keep an article to what I would consider readable length. In my "Bring Down the Sky" article there was one particular quote that I couldn’t share w...

Snotty game devs irritate me...
