Thank God for cell phones that can easily and covertly shoot a quick video. Or so I’m guessing that’s the back-story behind this clip, from some holiday party where a developer has their hands on a Natal dev kit and is demonstrating how Geometry Wars wor…

Merry Christmas everyone! How’s the birthday celebration for our Lord & Savior going for you thus far? Didn’t get what you asked Santa for? Totally sick of the parental units already? Not quite ready for that fifth viewing of Christmas Story on TBS?…

Some lists are based on sales, or influence, or how long they occupied the public’s attention. But this one is personal.

Yup. Well, the big screen adaptation at least. What could have been, indeed. That reminds me: you guys do know that the game was originally built around Jean-Claude Van Damme, right? That’s who Johnny Cage was modeled after, hence the split punch…

The 00s were the years that Macromedia Flash (now Adobe Flash, I know) really came into its own, transforming from an animation tool into a robust, full-featured platform for game developers to work magic in. And work they did, with tens of thousands of ne…

I’m kind of chasing the boat here – Space Invaders: Infinity Gene is almost six months old. Thankfully for me, the iTunes store’s completely backwards content ranking conspires to keep gems like this buried, and the nature of mobile gaming keeps these th…

The 00s were the era where video games got sexy – with technology finally able to keep pace with our fantasies, we modeled pixelated babes in all shapes and sizes. This list celebrates the ten hottest pieces of technological tail to cross our screens in th…

According to Greg Zeschuk, co-founder of BioWare, JRPGs are not very good. Especially when compared with the so-called vastly superior WRPGs that his company happens to produce. Here’s what he had to say about Japan’s fall from grace when it comes to rol…

It was a great decade for video games – the Golden Age is steadily underway, and there’s no market crash in sight. Budgets increased, innovation flourished and money flowed in like never before. The following list isn’t my favorite games, or the “best” games – instead, it’s a list of the titles that laid the groundwork for the future.

The release dates for a number of Wii and DS titles for Winter 2010 were recently unveiled. This includes Tatsunoko vs Capcom (Jan 26) and No More Heroes 2 (“late January” was all that’s been given), both of which are mighty fine games that one should n…
