Crysis 2 on Xbox 360 Looks Excellent

If there is one thing the launch and subsequent existence of the Xbox 360 and PS3 have taught me: Impressive specs mean very little. You could say the Nintendo Wii and gaming on the iPhone showed us that, but I would argue that with all the chest-puffing Sony did over the PS3 and eventual graphical […]

At Home with Cats Web Series

I make it no secret that I have cats. I used to hate cats, but 7.5 years ago my wife asked dropped a bomb on me when she asked if we could get a cat. I thought it over for about a day and figured her happiness was worth more to me than my disdain for cats, […]

The UnderGarden (Xbox Live Arcade) Review

Summary The UnderGarden is a cute, artistic and calming romp through a bioluminescent underwater world full of dormant plants that you need to repopulate.

JVC PICSIO GC-WP10 Pocket Cam Video Review

Summary The JVC PICSIO GC-WP10 is a personal video recorder in direct competition with the likes of the Flip video recorders; unfortunately for JVC, totally average optics and an sluggish custom OS from JVC leave this device unable to efficiently compete with higher end smart phones or even middle of the road digital cameras with […]

Gran Turismo 5 Damage Model Details

For those of you familiar with Gran Turismo 5: Prologue, the for-pay demo for the incredible long-dev-cycle Gran Turismo 5, you remember that there was no damage model in that snapshot of the game; as beautiful as it was. Fortunately, Polyphony Digital never intended to leave out an extensive damage model from the Gran Turismo […]

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Looks Excellent

With a God of War heritage and MercurySteam’s unexpected talent at creating graphical marvels, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is shaping up to look like a beautiful launch for October. My first interaction with MercurySteam’s was their work on developing Clive Barker’s Jericho. As much as I liked the story (I’m a horror fan) and was […]

Mafia II Release Party Planning

Mafia 2 is coming out August 24th, that’s in 6 days. We will explain why you should care… Almost 8 years ago to the day, the original Mafia was released for the PC. It was, in our opinion, the best game of 2002 and a sleeper hit that garner none of the attention it deserved. […]
