Antlions: I hate those guys

Seriously, why do they have to be such dicks and keep brother down all the time? I think the only thing I hate more than antlions are jumping puzzles in first-person shooters...not wait, jumping puzzles combined with antlions...yeah!

Better than sex?

The Crowd: Weirdest "game" I've ever encountered

This "game" was forced on me a while back, but I thought of it recently for some reason and re-downloaded it. It's called The Crowd, created by Kyle Gabler, whose also responsible for Tower of Goo and the upcoming World o...

So, CNET has finally put out the call to replace all review folks who've either resigned from GameSpot or you know, were fired. Of course, the job posting is missing one crucial piece from the responsibilities section: Mus...

I seem to have lost a day to the Orange Box (and sympathy for my poor Intel

Um, it appears to be Sunday in the Eastern time zone and I'm not sure what happened to Saturday. I can only assume it has something to do with having finally picked up the Orange Box on Friday. I realize I'm incredibly la...

Apple wants to make a game console, well, remember the Pippin!

The rumors are flying this morning that Apple seems to want into the game market. The iGame perhaps? Well, the rumors have been around for some time but their recent trademark filing (which Kif points out) has reignited the...

Smokers can't play Super Smash Brothers Brawl

So, apparently several unlucky saps in Japan who went out last Friday to pick up Super Smash Brothers Brawl ran home and ripped off the shrink wrap only to be greeted with an "Unable to Read Disc" error. Needless to say, gi...

Unanswered game questions: What was in the box in GTA 3?

Over the years, there have been a few video games that left me with some kind of weird mystery that still bug me. Be a plot hole, some random detail that wasn't elaborated on or the writers just plain screwing with the player...

What does WoW do to people?

Over the past year, several friends and acquaintances have got into this World of Warcraft business. I thought nothing of it at first. Heck, at one point I figured I'd probably join in eventually. But then I noticed somet...

What up with Nintendo and their shortages?

Seriously, Nintendo manages to run out of Wiis not for one, but two holiday seasons in a row and now it's clear there won't be enough copies of Super Smash Brothers Brawl to go around. The first Wii shortage was inevitable ...

Bloody archaic storage mediums!!

Memorable in-game choice: Deus Ex

The difficulty in finding old games

It seems odd to me that I can walk into almost any generic music store and purchase a jazz album from the 40's. Or go to Blockbuster and rent a movie from the same era. But try finding a game that's more than two year's old...
