Mega Headlines: Double Cube Dog Day

Heads had to roll after Microsoft’s E3 and its policy reversal, but so many things are changing at MS these days it is hard to say if the head of Xbox, Don Mattrick, leaving for Zynga was in the works even before E3. Regardless, I don’t know how you jump in with gusto onto Zynga’s… Continue reading

Horrible Newswire: Kickstarter Holodeck

If anyone can build the stepping stones to bringing the holodeck in real life, I trust in John Carmack. Also, I gotta say Conan’s Clueless Gamer series is really winning me over. Horrible Night Out – Hard and High was a success, thanks to all that made it out. Finally, it looks like Cole and… Continue reading

Shiniest Objects: Stupid Dog

A week of follow ups to major stories from last year, plus Zynga may be showing its true face. We were overly regretful last week, but luckily Justin Gifford was there to shake some sense into us with his first angry letter of 2012. Every day we are on the look out for the most… Continue reading

REPLY TO ALL: Contagiously Cheap

Sales and crazy Steam specials have seriously screwed with our abilities to finish games, though they have exposed us to some titles we wouldn’t normally get into. Let’s put on our devil’s advocate hat, think of other reasons that cheaper gaming could be a problem in the near future. How have cheaper video games and… Continue reading

Shiniest Objects: Ok, Who was Talking to Rovio?

Light news week, but plenty of loud mouths and frustrating sales reports. Why make a Shadows of the Damned when Just Angry Dancing with Friends is what the kids want? That is assuming of course these are the same kids that grew up loving Matilda or Kirby’s Dream Land because if our editorials are right… Continue reading

Think of the Children: Budget Gaming for Kids

Back when I was growing up, there were three main options of acquiring a video game. The game could either be purchased by you, your parents or an awesome relative who actually looked at your birthday/holiday wish-list and wanted you to be happy on that special day. Another way to play a new game was… Continue reading

Shiniest Objects: Protected Violence

Huge win for the industry this week as the Supreme Court ruled against California’s violent video game sales law. Hopefully, with all of this recent validation, the video game industry can actually do something with the spotlight (at least they didn’t notice Duke Nukem Forever). We focused our editorial efforts on unveiling 2 of the… Continue reading
