I've been being a surly gal the past couple days, pouting stiffly at all the preview hysteria and the barrage of announcements out of E3. That's mostly because I'm jealous I'm stuck here in New York with no air conditioning,...


Dance Beatdown? Draglade announced!

Ever been to one of those parties -- think back to some kid's Bar Mitzvah, or maybe it's someone's awkward, overheated wedding, and sometimes someone's dancing just looks a little bit dangerous? There's a sweaty 13-year-...

"Special Lessons" with Mitsurugi

I confess, fighting games aren't really my specialty. I'm only passably good at them -- that's to say, better than many people, but I eat dirt against practiced gamers. I do play a lot of Soul Calibur, though. My hands get autom...
