$1200 Titan XP video card vs. a video card from 1988

Don't talk to Bronson Pinchot. Don't cross the street without consulting two gays. Don't Instagram wild animals. Don't work at a video game blog. And never miss your rent payment because you bought a $1200 video card. Especially this one.&n...

Friday Night Fights - Go ninja, go ninja, go!

I am currently overworked and exhausted. I got nothing. I just want to play some Infamous Second Son and Destiny. I want that new Platinum Turtles game to hit too. I need to play through Transformers: Devastation again also. I think I have ...

PlayStation Network maintenance delays US PSN update

Since Sony doesn't have a set time when they update the PlayStation Network -- a stark contrast to pretty much all of their competitors -- a lot of us were anxiously waiting for them to eventually update the PSN, and get our hands on the ju...

'Gun violent' videogames removed from MA truck stops

My original plan for today was to head out to Connecticut to talk to residents of Southington about their initiative to destroy violent videogames. That event was canceled. So one ridiculous sidestepping of the real issues in our ...

E3 Rant: You got what you asked for, happy now?

I'm an old school gamer, but I like to think I have an open mind. I like it when series reinvent themselves and I rarely object when a developer attempts a new aesthetic or visual style. I was there to applaud Konami's Guillermo del Toro-in...

Nintendo wants digital and retail to be priced the same

Little Niero would have cut your throat for a cartridge

I like beef, so I eat it sometimes. It's too much work for a lazy blogger go kill and roast an animal in the woods, so I'm glad that there's a place that shapes it into squares, then puts it on bread and cheese. It's called Wendy's and they...

GameStop's Retro Game Vault is ridiculously stupid

Hey, guys! Remember when GameStop used to sell legacy games and hardware? Atari, Genesis, you name it. Those were the days, before the company began swallowing up the competition and ditched the retro wares in favor of almost exclusively cr...

PlayStation Move, why aren't you moving?

The PlayStation Move came to North America on September 17, 2010. In that time, I think I've used the peripheral maybe six times. This is said as a person whose job it is to own and use one of these things. When the controller was first int...

Hey Microsoft, no means no!

Dear Microsoft, Have you ever heard the word "no" before? When somebody says that word, it usually means they don't want something or would like an ongoing activity to stop. So for instance, when you notify me via Xbox Live that my subscrip...

Is the dual-stick controller a game design crutch?

It has been nearly two months since Nintendo unveiled the 3DS Slide Pad Expansion (Circle Pad Pro in the West). Despite the initial cries of "Nubageddon," the fervor has since died down, allowing everyone to reflect upon the news with an op...

Adventure Time creator thinks the best games have stories

We've already heard a lot from Pendleton Ward, creator of the hit show Adventure Time, about his interest in making a game based on the property. Up until now, I was excited about the prospect of an Adventure Time game. Now I'm not so sure....

Fans upset over anime-ized statue of Mass Effect's Liara

I remember when the Western anime craze really started to boom in the late 90s. Not only did media distributors start licensing every single Japanese property under the sun, distinctly Western properties began to demonstrate greater and gre...

The 3DS eShop, or why Nintendo has no f*cking clue

I am an idiot. Some of you are reading this now and your first thought is, "He finally admits it!" However, I have a specific reason for this self-deprecating opener. There was some part of me -- some naive, doe-eyed, expectant part of me -...

Valve 'fans' whine and cry about Portal 2 like idiots

Portal 2 launched yesterday in a whirlwind of critical acclaim, but if you believe some of the fans out there, this game is the worst thing since anthrax was invented. An army of bitter little fanboys has attacked the game via Metacritic's ...

Very few games are M-rated, but they take all the glory

And you wonder why developers 'hate' PC gamers ...

Crysis 2 is released on March 22, but if you've got a little time and even less scruples, you can play it right now. With almost depressing inevitability, an entire developer build of the game has been leaked online, allowing PC gamers earl...
