Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine Loves Customization

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine looks to introduce a new generation of gamers to the action packed possibilities of the table top board game and recent RTS mainstay, and it’s doing so with a whole lot of flair, flair that’s not required but definitely recommended. From the following video, it appears as if players will have the opportunity to design… Continue reading

Shiniest Objects: We Knew Better

Earnings calls were this week with THQ and Nintendo trying to right their respective ships. This led to some good news for gamers (price cuts) and bad news (failing franchises). With the podcast taking two weeks off we still cranked out a few original editorials and picked up Cole’s jaw from off the floor after… Continue reading

I Learned Something Today: Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II

War is inevitable, but one day humanity may have to contend with armies not comprised of their fellow man, armies filled with things like aliens, demons, and ghosts with pirate hats. Business suits will be traded for battle armor, briefcases for guns, and prosthetic limbs will be covered in blades that evoke fear as opposed… Continue reading

Red Faction: Armageddon Ready to Destroy, Rebuild, Destroy Again

If I’ve learned anything from the Red Faction series it is that Mars is the universe’s greatest sandbox. The series made its mark in the PS2 era with allowing the player to deform the game world around them. Red Faction: Armageddon is the 4th game in the franchise and continues to build/destroy off of the… Continue reading

Shiniest Objects: We Should Make a Shooter

Fictional North Koreans Causing Real World Problems for THQ

In the game Homefront, a number of societal  and economic disasters befall the United States, thus enabling a super powered North Korea to cross the ocean and take over. In a bitter twist of irony, the mixed reviews of aforementioned game just caused an economic disaster of its own for publisher THQ. THQ shares dropped 21% on… Continue reading

The Horror of Amnesia: The Dark Descent Gets Boxed Up February 22

The trend of boxed games going digital gets the reverse treatment here as Amnesia: The Dark Descent is finally getting its own little place on retail shelves. Getting your own box in the world of video games must be similar to growing a sweet moustache or touching a girl’s boobs for the first time, so congratulations, Amnesia. If you like scary… Continue reading

Dawn of War II: Retribution Beta: Meet the Imperial Guard

I had the opportunity to check out the beta for Dawn of War II: Retribution this past week and let me say right now that I’m super excited, almost to “pee my pants level” but not quite “poop my pants” level (that tends to happen out of fear). For those not in the know,the  Dawn of War… Continue reading

WWE All-Stars Looks Flat Out Ridiculous

Pro wrestling is an athletic, over the top form of sports entertainment that doesn’t need much in the way of embellishment when it comes to transferring that action to video game form. WWE All-Stars is looking to change that when it is released on March 29. Developed and published by THQ, All-Stars takes your favorite wrestlers… Continue reading
