…Wherein Sony tries something I actually don’t hate…

Today Joystiq explicates a new PSN trick, one that actually isn’t a terrible idea.  Killzone 3’s multiplayer will be a free-to-play, standalone title on the PSN, and if you like it so much and want to proceed beyond the set level-cap you can pay $14.99 to continue digital improvement.  If you can stomach remaining at the same, […]

Borderlands 2 coming in September

In news that makes me (and surely Wes, too) very happy, Borderlands 2 will be coming September 18. As you can see from the trailer, its graphical styling is still there, only better looking–like playing a cartoon. The best news: 4-player online co-op. Wes just peed himself somewhere…

…Wherein my childhood keeps coming back…

Saw this on Joystiq today:  WW(F) WrestleFest is making a comeback via Xbox Live (and those other ones, too). I, for one, am mostly pumped, much like the late Randy Savage was (only with less steroids in my case).  The one problem I have is the inclusion of current wrestlers, which really isn’t that big […]

Rock Band getting RickRoll’d on Valentine’s Day

Not that I mind the 80s flare being disseminated by Harmonix to the Rock Band DLC collection, I still find it hard to believe that Rick Atsley is getting the RB treatment when we, the people, are missing out on Led Zeppelin! http://www.rockband.com/blog/gold-star-my-heart-dlc Also up for Valentine’s Day: Every Rose Has Its Thorn – Poison […]

I’m Just a Citizen of Skyrim, but I’m So Much More

Certainly by now you’ve read a review of Skyrim, the latest Elder Scrolls iteration to grace our boring Earth (unlike the always-interesting Tamriel).  The last thing you need from me is to write yet another account of how great the game is; you know it’s great, even if you haven’t played it.  Instead I want […]

Final Fantasy X Coming Remastered on PS3

It was announced that Final Fantasy X will be ported to the PS Vita and remastered on the PS3.  FFX, my favorite iteration of the Final Fantasy series, will be a welcome sight to see in its newly-remastered, HD form.  However, I can’t help but wonder what they will do with this scene: You just […]

Skyrim Gameplay Video Creates Fury Because It Isn’t 11/11/11 Yet

The fine folks at G4 interviewed Bethesda’s Todd Howard about the awe-striking Skyrim, the next chapter of The Elder Scrolls series. As you can see from watching through this 14 minutes of gameplay, your life will become null and void come November 11, 2011.  I can’t describe how excited I am for this game…

With Skyrim Looming, I’ve Been Dragged Into Oblivion

I’m sure you’ve already seen the wondrous previews of Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, which was previewed to the lucky bastards who have successful video game websites a few weeks ago.  As a huge fan of Oblivion, I eagerly await this juggernaut to claim all free-time come November 11.  It seems, though, that Tamriel’s grasp on […]

ApocalyPS3: The Second Coming!!

Didn’t Sony learn anything from fellow Japanese, corporate giant Toyota?  You can’t hide behind vague language or impose a media blackout when you have a potentially serious issue (like a sticking accelerator pedal or a massive leak of your subscription base’s personal information) because you are afraid of the PR hit you’ll take.  As Toyota […]

The 2010 Guilded Casks! Inaugural Edition!

Everybody else does an awards story for their site, and hey, we’re conformists!  Presenting to you the first annual Guilded Cask Awards.

Battlestar! Now on your Xbox 360, PS3, and/or Wii!

Your console of choice just got a whole lot sweeter!  Now available on Netflix’ Instant Queue is the full series of the re-imagined SyFy original, Battlestar Galactica, possibly the greatest TV drama ever.  When my obsession first hit a year and a half ago, I would have killed another human being to have the entirety […]

The DC Dream Dies…

DC Universe Online…the game that might bring me into MMOs?  Could a console gamer make that jump, is it possible?  If only the subscription cost were to disappear, perhaps because said console gamer was a subscriber to the platform’s internet service?  PSN+, that would absorb the cost of a monthly subscription to such an anticipated […]

DC Universe Online due in November

DC Universe Online, also known as “the reason I bought a PS3”,  has been given a release date of November 2010.  The only MMO I’ve ever considered playing and I have some pretty lofty expectations for it.  I’m eagerly awaiting E3 to hear further details, like whether or not there will be a subscription fee […]
