Interview With Cliff Bleszinski

Back like a month ago I got to interview the legendary Cliff Bleszinski of Epic Games, to talk about whats new and what they have been up to. Since my discussion they have announced some cool stuff about multiplayer, delayed the game, and closed the Save Carbine contest.  This article was was originally going to be in the print release of the magazine, but due to some size constraints in the section, we couldn’t weasel it it. That said,...

Super Scribblenauts Gigantic Rad Scaled Steel … review

At last year’s E3, the talk of the show was a little known game at the Warner Brothers Interactive Booth called Scribblenauts.  This little known DS game incredibly allow the player the impossible ability to summon and interact with any noun that wasn’t Proper, Copyrighted, or dirty (it’s E10 rated after all) and challenged the use to solve dozens of puzzles with their imaginations (something Video Games in general rarely ask of the player.)  Fast-forward to that September...

Who needs sleep? Come Co-op with me! – Halo: Reach Review

Who needs sleep? Come Co-op with me! – Halo: Reach Review

The most anticipated game ever is dropping the final curtain with it’s latest release: Halo: Reach. And can I start off by saying that this game is truly more fun when playing with a group friends. Sure, you can play through the campaign but Halo: Reach truly shines when you get your closest friends together. From the stunning graphics to the extremely customizable Spartan characters and multi-player experience, Halo: Reach is a culmination of everything...

PAX Prime 2010 Round up

So PAX Prime in Seattle this year is nearly over and we got a bunch of surprises this year from the show. Duke Nukem Lives Again: After much rumor and speculation, Take 2 finally confirmed that Duke Nukem is alive and well in the hands of far more financially responsible developer, Gearbox! The title was playable on the show floor and is expected to be released in 2011. Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath goes HD: The cult...

EverQuest Next Teased at SoE Fan Fare

I am not one to usually post reveals or teases, but this one is quite the big deal for me.  SoE pulled the tarp to reveil the long awaited Sequel/Reboot of EverQuest and if they has their way, the first true reboot in MMO’s since, well EverQuest came out over 10 years ago. Behold, Codename EQNext! While these seem like beautiful works of concept art, Sony says that these are actual in game screenshots of...

Alien Swarm Review

So if reviews are suppose to be a kind of buyers guide to things that cost money, then consider this a public service announcement, go download this free game now… No really, I mean it. Start downloading it and comeback so I can tell you why you are now a cool kid for getting it. Alien Swarm is a free Valve game (did I mention you should be downloading it right now) made by Black Cat...

Quick Product Update – Powerball: Gamer

Quick Product Update – Powerball: Gamer

This update is going to be super short and sweet. I promise. It’s been more than two weeks since my last post about the “Powerball: Gamer” and I must say that I am completely in love with it! It hasn’t made me a better gamer, per say, but it has definitely improved my circulation and grip. Both were problems I was beginning to struggle with since I started to sit in front of a PC...

XBLA Indie Game Speed Run

So for those who may follow me on Twitter, which are not many of you, (Self-condemning remark to fish out more followers so I can feel more important) I have been on a Team Fortress 2 and Rock Band 2 binge. Those are my two fall back games when I have nothing better to do, we all have them. Even more awesome is that when I happen to have nothing interesting to play, the Engineer Update and the Creedence Clearwater...

E3 2010: Vindictus

As soon as I heard that Nexon was coming to E3, I was thinking that maybe they were going to unveil a new game that wasn’t free. So far, I’ve seen and heard nothing but good things when it came to anything Nexon. “Maple Story” is a personal fav of mine and I can’t even walk into a Duane Reade, CVS or Rite Aid anymore without buying Nexon Bucks. However, I’m not really sure if...

E3 Editor’s Choice: “Epic Mickey”

Unlike my far cooler colleague, GamerGal, I couldn’t go to E3 and had to sit at home and feverishly follow tweets and my normal 10 million websites to scratch together all the news out there. While I feverishly wait for the New Zelda, Kirby, and Donkey Kong, nothing on the Wii has got me more excited then Junction Point and Disney’s Epic Mickey. The story sounds like the kind of thing Walt Disney himself would pen if he...
