Anyone who bothers to read Video Game news already knows the DRM issues that EA is facing right now. In case you haven’t, EA has put limits on how many times you can install their latest games Spore and Red Alert 3. Also, the people that pirated the game had Spore out for download without the […]

Here is the list in no particular order. Yes, I am aware they are numbered, and therefore in some sort of order but they are all special. I love them all equally. 10. Snipers sure are skilled players that do not annoy me at all. 9. I really enjoyed that good tea-bagging and I deserved […]

A reader over at the consumerist had some trouble with Blizzard. He tried to download a copy of Diablo II from their digital store, but the download didn’t work. Blizzard’s customer service tried to help him do it again, but that also failed. They then suggested to just buy it at a store. So he […]

Absolutely unbelieveable. Either this is a bad April fool’s joke (a favorite pasttime of Blizzard Entertainment) or there was a meeting to determine how best to start screwing up a sure thing. In a mindbogglingly stupid announcement from Blizz Con it was revealed that StarCraft II, which is already going to be late, is now […]

So here’s an interesting bit. It looks like EA’s now aborted shooter based in the Command & Conquer universe has joined the ranks of StarCraft: Ghost as another failed attempt of changing RTS over to FPS. What’s really most amusing about future trivia question known as Tiberium is that it was cancelled because of an […]

I’d like to kick off what I hope will become somewhat of a series, with a game everyone can enjoy, Fable. It’s made friends with both console and PC gamers, and it’s generally considered to be very good, if not a must-play. Also, my girlfriend has been playing this game non-stop.

Hard to believe isn’t it? It’s been a little over ten years since Duke first offered up cash-for-flash to those infamous pixelated pole dancers. It was a great moment for pushing the envelope in a relatively new medium. And if you ask me, these moments have been far too few in recent years. Sure, we’ve […]

A couple days ago I was having a conversation about upcoming games with a fellow who lamented that “StarCraft 2 will probably be awesome, but the storyline is bound to suck.” I quickly agreed with him, but I didn’t add that the story for Brood War sucked. Nor did I mention that I didn’t really […]

I tell ya: when it rains, it pours. Right on the heels of StarCraft II mania, we have the new Fallout 3 trailer this week. Expectations are running so high for both of these games that it’s rather fitting for them to take their first public breaths together. Though the combined antici….pation is killing me, […]

Face it: StarCraft is the philandering husband who we loved madly for a couple of years until he got up and left one night without warning. Now almost ten years later, he’s back on our doorsteps: unshaven, stinking of booze, and sporting lipstick marks all over his face. Unlike so many gamers ready to be […]
