Awesome Crap: BioShock 2 Syringe Pen

I would like to share two of my interests with you: I like to surf the web of Inter and I like awesome, useless, and overpriced crap. Adding a third interest, writing, and I would like to share the awesome, useless, and overpriced crap I ...

 
 
 

Anti-Piracy, Anti-Used, Anti-Consumer?

CNBC just posted an article entitled "Game Publishers Fight Back Against Used Games." Used game retailers and game developers and publishers have been bickering about who gets what in a used game transaction, but the measures some of these ...

 
 
 

The Future: HP Bar Half Full

The future of the gaming industry looks bloody bleak. Stores have become so fed up with shovelware thanks to Nintendo's adamant marketing to the casual gamer that they are refusing to stock these garbage titles. The age of digital distribut...

 
 
 

Man to Machine: I DO.

Ever fallen in love with a character from a book, movie, or game that you wanted to spend your life with? Well, this guy Sal (or Sal 9000 as he calls himself on the e-world) has definitely been crushing on his Nintendo DS. Though Sal 9000...

 
 
 

Mini Ninjas: Pint Sized Heroes, Gallons of Fun

So, you've undoubtely heard this game's name somewhere in the past couple weeks and you've probably noticed its lower than normal-for-next-gen price point at $49.99. That low price point is usually a red flag when speaking about the quality...

 
 
 
 

BioShock 2 Release Date Battle Begins!

The announcement of BioShock 2's delay has definitely pissed me off. It was one of the games that I was dying to get my hands on this holiday. After a recent visit to my local GameStop, I saw this preorder list in a big binder. Pictured a...

 
 
 

Marcus Fenix Apparently Has a Diary

Okay, well, not really. But, in case you did not know, there is a wonderful lady who has taken it upon herself to write books in the Gears of War universe! I stumbled across the first book (pictured on the left) while I was looking for Di...

 
 
 

Remove GameStop stickers LoL

So, I always hear people bitch about GameStop's stickers on their used games and the shit residue they leave when they unsuccessfully try to peel the buggers off. So, I decided to create a little how-to video to show these kids how to remov...

 
 
 

Power in My Hands, part II

Power in My Hands, part 2 is the continuation of an inFAMOUS fan-fiction short story, viewing an event in Empire city through the eyes of an EMT who viewed himself as morally sound... and still does... for now. Power in My Hands, part I can...

 
 
 

Censor This! FU

I hate Jack Thompson. I hate Cooper Lawrence. I hate dolts who think violent video games skewer kids' perception of reality. That's your job, Mom and Dad. And my favorite part is that everyone and their mothers gets up in arms about violent...

 
 
 

Swedes poke Blizzard about StarCraft 2!

So, two Swedes (the only Swedes who have a game show in that over thar country) managed to poke designers of StarCraft 2 with some interesting questions at DreamHack. As I was listening to this interview (mostly because I am fortunate enou...

 
 
 

Power in My Hands

[Power in My Hands is an inFAMOUS fan-fiction short story, viewing an event in Empire city through the eyes of an EMT who views himself as morally sound... for now] “Thank you, doctor,” the man whispered as I cleaned out his stab w...

 
 
 

One Man's Hope of the New Console Generation

With Microsoft's Project Prenatal EyeToy or whatever launching with a brand new console, I must weigh in on my hopes of the new upcoming console generation. We all know that Sony won't be in a quick hurry to release anything as they are sti...

 
 
 

Zak Plays: inFAMOUS!!!!11one.eoneon

The weeks before inFAMOUS was released, I would easily mistake inFAMOUS for Prototype and vice versa when I was just glancing at the trailers. And I always thought that Cole (from inFAMOUS) looked a little too much like the apprentice from ...

 
 
 

Zak Plays Raiden Fighters Aces

Raiden Fighters Aces for Xbox 360 is a re-release of the old classic arcade shooters Raiden Fighters, Raiden Fighters 2, and Raiden Fighters Jet. When I first saw this game on the shelves, I was quite curious why this game got the physica...

 
 
 

What I Want To See: Cannon Fodder Comeback!

Because war has never been so much fun. I have very fond memories of this game. When I was a child the age of seven or some such age close to that, my parents were split up and lived in two different countries. I stayed with my mother in Sw...

 
 
 

What I Want To See: Need For Speed Classic

So, I've been on a Need For Speed binge lately. I've started playing Underground 2, Most Wanted, and Carbon all over again. I also went and saw the new Fast & Furious movie which was, to be honest, very disappointing a did not have as much ...

 
 
 

How GameStop Got Me Back Into Guitar Hero

So, I have always had a soft spot for Guitar Hero and also a spot to burn it on my lawn. I play real guitar, so pretending to play sometimes feels silly to me when I could just learn to play the real thing. However, I also don't have an ent...

 
 
 

Star Ocean: The Last Hope = Doing Taxes

I just picked up Star Ocean: The Last Hope on the Xbox 360 on its release day and I have been enjoying it thus far (some five hours into the game). However, I am a complete newcomer to the series and I had no idea what to expect in the com...

 
 
 
 

Internet 1, Retail Stores 0

It is no doubt that the success of Internet shops has affected retail stores all over the world. Anyone remember DotComGuy? He lived in a house for an entire year and bought everything he needed from his computer. For a year. That was almos...

 
 
 
 

Sega needs to be punched in the face

I am not scared to admit that I would be first in line to buy some brass knuckles if I had been given the choice to punch SEGA in the face. Why? They are Hedgehog killers. Sonic the Hedgehog was an amazing title... over ten years ago. As e...

 
 
 

Nintendo Hurts Feelings Now

Yes. It's true. Nintendo, the almighty powerful, influential, and grandparent-appealing videogame developer has apparently struck a serious chord with a certain woman. That woman appears on a show called The View, and her name is Elisabeth....

 
 
 

Ubisoft goes racist with its Imagine franchise

Ubisoft is spearheading its own mission to subtly put certain members of certain ethnic backgrounds in the correct place in society. Don't believe me yet? Check this picture: Nintendo and the developers for its DS and Wii system have alr...

 
 
 

Yay! Another Sonic Collection!

Like the title says, I am excited for yet another Sonic the Hedgehog collection! Strike that, I meant to say, Ultimate Genesis Collection!! Priced at only $29.99, this was an easy decision to throw down some money for a preorder. The only ...

 
 
 

Please Ban NHL 09

The fact that Ice Hockey even exists in this world is a sad fact. But, you cannot get rid of an entire industry that has been around for over a century and its so-called "traditions." This sport is ludicrous, violent, and breeds masochism, ...

 
 
 

Christmas 2008

Christmas. A time of giving and good feeling. The snow, the jingles, the gifts, the music, and the lights. I have always remembered it well, and I have always looked forward to it, year after year. Watching your brother open that big gift t...

 
 
 

I DO WANT: Elemental: War of Magic

So I just received my new issue of Game Informer magazine and was very, very happy to see a preview for a PC game - Elemental: War of Magic - that will, unfortunately, not be released until sometime 2010 (rumored to be February). I was a h...
