So, after peeling myself away from Gears, I made a visit to Atari today to check out Bullet Witch for the Xbox 360 -- due out in sometime in February. My assumptions of what to expect of the game were merely a mix of this: It's a Japanese...

So, I'm about an hour or two into the game. I chose to go the hardcore route, or whatever the middle level is called, instead of the wussy beginner level. I'm way to uber for such nonsense. Well, they aren't kidding when they say hardcore...

Cute Japanese chicks love the Wii

You know, I overheard the other day on the streets of NYC some dude telling another dude that the DS is for girls. Is it possible the Wii will suffer the same stigma? Possibly. What does that have to do with this video? Probably nothing. ...

A view into EA's kick in your pouch

Despite crap games, EA raking in millions
