UK Charts: Black Ops on top ... as if it wouldn't be

UK Charts: Mafia II refuses to die

Mafia II is enjoying its third week at the top of the UK Charts, which is somewhat surprising given the fact that so many gamers felt tepid towards it. Still, if these charts are good for one thing, it's reminding the gaming community that ...   read

UK Charts: Toy Story 3 again

This week's UK Chart listing is the most boring one ever. Almost nothing of interest happened, with Toy Story 3 back on top, Red Dead Redemption still hanging around, and most of Ubisoft's dancing crap polluting the world. Boring, boring st...   read

UK Charts: Crackdown 2 still beating the odds

Between Crackdown 2 and APB, I'd say I'm not welcome in Dundee. Not that it matters for at least one of those games, since Crackdown 2 is still kicking ass in the sales department. Who needs to be good when you can sell to the masses? ...   read

UK Charts: Harry Potters and Ghost Warriors

Oh sure, Daniel Radcliffe looks "cute" now, but just take a real good look at him. I give him fifteen more years before he looks like a pedophile.  So, unsurprisingly, Lego Harry Potter is at the top of the chart. My own stepson wouldn...   read
