How I got my mom to game: Adventure Inlay

My dad's a gamer. He's just naturally into them. We bought Mike Tyson's Punch out back in 1988 and I soon learned that I could not stand next to him while he was playing or I'd get a right hook to the face, years before Wiita...

Hamza is too busy to be kicked in the face while reading email

Like most guys in the gaming industry I sit at my desk all day, which apparently kills you faster than chicken nuggets, so I try to get up every few minutes and do some exercise. We hung a chin-up bar in the hallway which a...

I've been out shopping a lot lately and have made repeat visits to many of the same stores on different days of the week. Lots of different deals on different days at different places. But you want to know one thing that's co...

I don't think I'm going to finish Resident Evil 6. It sucks.

I'm almost at a loss for words here. I'm truthfully struggling to put my feelings on the computer screen right now. I just don't know where to begin. I haven't even fully identified what went wrong. I've got my ideas but no...

So, I accidentally got into comics [mostly NVGR]

Is it just me or has the community abandoned this website?

I've been noticing a trend around here: There are fewer and fewer comments posted on the majority of articles posted on the front page with each passing week. At least it seems that way. I haven't bothered to get scientific a...

Post your fond memories of Nintendo Power! Here's mine
