The last time GOG (Good Old Games, in case you’ve been living under a gaming rock) was ready to make a big change, they masked their downtime by announcing the site was shutting down. It was meant as a kind of prank/practical joke that didn’t sit too well with some […]

This is a new idea I had; it’ll probably be of most interest to me over time, but who knows? The plan is to do one of these every Friday. Purchases This Week I picked up 4 new games this week, three of them due to sales. Amazon had a […]

Saw this on PC Gamer and it doesn’t seem to be spreading as quickly as most Notch News does. The quick hit is that Notch (of Minecraft fame) has started working on a space trading sandbox game “that’s more like Firefly” and he invokes that holiest of space games, Elite, […]

Last night I decided to spend a half hour watching Funcom’s The Secret World video from GDC. I’m not really sure why; I’ve finally come to accept that MMOs aren’t a good genre for me, but I guess old habits die hard. I’m sure I’m going to keep buying these […]

Ubisoft just sent out a press release detailing their plans for PAX East, coming up in Boston on the weekend of April 6-8th. Thank you Easter Bunny! Fanatical Dedicated Far Cry 3 fans can get a (permanent) tattoo on the show floor, choosing from several tribal designs inspired by the […]

Sony just put up a new Starhawk post on the Playstation Blog that talks about the ways of playing Starhawk with other people. The game had a split-screen option that lets each player log into his or her Playstation account: Dual Log-In: Yes, two players can sign into on one […]

I finished Journey last night. It sounds kind of funny to say that, as if it were some kind of accomplishment when it really isn’t. Journey is a very short, very easy game. I think my playthrough was about 3 hours. Certainly not more than 4, and I finished the […]

This wasn’t uploaded by SyFy so we’ll see how long it lasts. The remade BSG was a big hit for SyFy but the more cerebral spin-off Caprica tanked. So the SyFy brain-trusts went back to blowing shit up for this new series. I believe it tells the story of Bill […]
