Cheap and Dirty Gamer: Cyclomaniacs Epic Will Make You a BMX Hero

BMX bikes, stunts, big jumps, robots, and Rick Astley. Do I really need to say more? FINE! This week’s Cheap and Dirty Gamer features Cyclomaniacs Epic, a game about saving the Earth from an invading fish alien though BMX greatness. At least that’s what I think it was about (and no, I’m not being facetious). Cheap… Continue reading

Hey! Listen! Chrono Jigga Jay-Z Mash-Up with Chrono Trigger by 2 Mello

As someone who has non-sensical hip-hop tastes, The Grey Album was responsible for actually opening my mind to enjoying his music. So you can say I have a soft spot for Jay-Z mash-ups. Add in my weakness for video game music that is well documented on this and you know I never stood a chance… Continue reading

Hey! Play! Bombermine is 1,000 Player Bomberman

There have been a surprising number of new Bomberman games this generation, but everyone has their favorite classic version to point to. Honestly, I thought the series peaked with 4 players until I got into a few awesome 8 player matches. So maybe more is better, or at least worth trying for free. Bombermine is… Continue reading

Night Moves Issue 2: Look Where You Are Going

The lesson of the week is quite simple: while we may consider ourselves video game bad asses, we have no business going at it alone, no matter what “it” is. We do not possess the simple survival skills to understand our environment which results in a lot of confusion, screaming, and often, player death that… Continue reading

Night Moves Issue 1: You Call These Highlights?

We’ve been having a damn good time livestreaming more of our gaming sessions lately and interacting with those of you have made it into chat or joined in the game itself. If you haven’t been able to make it or even if you have, we’ve started posting highlight videos (depending on your perspective) multiple times… Continue reading

If your Valentine’s Day has sucked so far, you’re in store for quite the treat as I take you through the English Patient of monster truck games with Monster Truck Trip 3 by nonamelab. Watch as I lather on a heavy layer of stunts, drama and sensuality. If you prefer diesel over pussier forms of gasoline,… Continue reading

Star Trek: The Game has Pinches, Explosions, Co-Op

I’m officially turning my attention to other science fiction licenses, and, as I remember being stunned by the E3 debut of Star Trek: The Game. However, Digital Extremes and NamcoBandai have been pretty quiet about it since, even though the movie marketing has been picking up a lot of momentum. Not anymore, though, as this… Continue reading

Hey! Watch! 90’s Nintendo Promo Videos

As a survivor of heavy doses of Nintendo propaganda, nothing is quite so therapeutic as reliving my favorite youth drug of choice. There’s just something incredible about how badly 90’s advertising has aged. Lucky for all of us, YouTube user JJ Hendricks has uploaded handful of promotional videos of Nintendo’s finest work. I can’t really… Continue reading

War Thunder Beta Impressions: Don’t Underestimate These Skies or Those Trees

War Thunder from Gaijin Entertainment will feature large scale, simultaneous air, land and sea pvp battles when it launches. The current beta version only has the air portion implemented, but it already looks fantastic. The arcade mode in this game has to be the most fun, accessible pseudo-sim flight game since Crimson Skies. Josh leaves Justin… Continue reading

City in the Sky BioShock Infinite Trailer Will Erect Your Dysfunctional Gamer

It’s no secret that BioShock Infinite is one of the most anticipated games of 2013, and continues to tease us with trailers to hopefully dilute our feelings of disappointment that have grown with every release date push. I have a love/hate relationship with these trailers.  I know I’m excited about this game. I know I’m… Continue reading
