As most folks should know by now, I love whenever artists use video games as a source for whatever. Sometimes the results are genuinely compelling, though it’s most just flat out hilarious. I also like it when games are combined with real world elements;…

I absolutely love hearing religious zealots proclaim that such and such kids’ thing is the work of the devil. The more innocuous and innocent the focus of such wraith, the better. Like Pokemon! My favorite part would either have to be the shot of the wom…

Take a guy, put him in vaguely Ghostbusters attire, but instead of a proton pack, set him up with a PS3 slim that’s attached to a projector, and what do you get? What Epson likes to call the “Extreme Gamer.” Via Epson of Europe….

So I had some quality time with the Dante’s Inferno demo today, and wanted to share my impressions of this highly-awaited (and much-maligned) game with you. Yes, this is the video game based on the epic poem about Virgil’s descent into the Abyss, but any…

If you’re like me, you didn’t catch Spike TV’s annual VGAs this past weekend. Perhaps there was something else going on, like a holiday party with some pals, as I had. Or perhaps you don’t have cable, again much like myself. Or maybe you simply knew wh…

Via Craigslist. And if that link doesn’t work by the time you read this (I’m shocked that it’s still up to be honest), here it is in its full glory: LOL Craigslist! And Canadians. Thanks for the head’s up Phil Fish!…

Cory Arcangel, who? Exactly. The world of art has a new game to use as fodder, and its name is Mortal Kombat. And yes, I realize that I’ve been posting a lot about that game as of late. Even I don’t know why it keeps popping up, and it’s also not like I…

The war over President Obama’s health care reform bill has been down and dirty since the very start, though the major health insurance companies have a new arsenal up their sleeves. They’re urging people to send emails to Congress to protest the bill by…

In Japan, where such stuff can be found in droves, you date criminally young looking girls without any real consequence. One can act inappropriate as one wishes to be with these big-eyed, anime vixens and the most that will happens is them blushing and run…

As just revealed over at Nintendo Power, the tenth installment of the original Mega Man series is finally on its way. For fans of the Blue Bomber in his prime element, this is fantastic news. Mind you, it’s more of the same, but many wouldn’t have it any…
