Think of the Children: Fiscally Link(ed)

In a world of realistic portrayals of war-time violence, games often get overlooked as potential educational tools. Growing up with computer games like Oregon Trail, Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?, Geometric Golf, and Number Munchers totally elminates that notion in my mind. There are games that can be great educational tools but… Continue reading

Shiniest Objects: More Bits, Less Awards

Surprising amount of headlines for a non release week, even outside of whatever that “overblown trailer reveal show with some awards in it” was. We put together a handful of editorials focused on the featured games of our Co-op Clash tournament, plus a couple of reviews because someone has to finish all of these games…. Continue reading

I Learned Something Today: Super Mario 3D Land

I know one business I’m never getting into: plumbing. Sure it could lead to getting your own reality show on ghost hunting but is it worth dealing with the waste of humans on a day to day basis? Oh, and there’s always the outside chance you’ll be sucked into a drain, flushed away to some… Continue reading

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Review: Learning To Fly

The Wii is fading, no question. In a generation that revolves around online play and high-definition graphics, the Wii has become more of a party system for casual gamers. It just wasn’t putting out the memorable gaming experiences that made Nintendo such a household name in the first place. That’s what makes The Legend of… Continue reading

Shiniest Objects: Not That Kind of T Club

The industry is spent, and we should all take time to recover before the ceremonial month of patting ourselves on the back for good gaming. EA did manage to confuse us, while Skyrim teased the beginning of its flood of awards, and Nintendo bounced back with tried and true franchises for the 3DS. Here at… Continue reading

Super Mario 3D Land Review: 3D Made Easy

Mario hasn’t had the most stellar history when it comes to games being released on Nintendo’s mobile platforms. Super Mario Land was as drastic a departure from the Super Mario Bros. style as Super Mario Bros. 2 was. Super Mario Land 2: Six Golden Coins would correct that jag and is completely recognizable as the… Continue reading

OCReMix Album Commemorates 25 Years of The Legend of Zelda

While Nintendo did right by having an orchestra perform the music from The Legend of Zelda for the series’ 25th anniversary, there’s nothing quite like fans doing right by one of gaming’s greatest franchises. The indie video game music community has come together for the album and OverClocked ReMix has stepped up to publish the 25th Anniversary Zelda… Continue reading

REPLY TO ALL: Download Experimentation

Starbreeze (The Riddick Games, The Darkness, Syndicate) recently announced they are developing an exclusive game for PSN. What major developer would you like to see take a crack at a smaller downloadable title, and what do you think they would try and make? Or do you think they should stick with their AAA titles? Want… Continue reading

Shiniest Objects: Let the Butts Go

Hopefully this was the last week for a while that the industry will be spending all of its industry discussing review scores. I did not expect that conversation to end with the Jurassic Park game though. At the Night, we relived our marathon highlights, announced our next event, offended everyone, and reviewed 2 more big… Continue reading
