    What Games Are: Should Sony Move Beyond PlayStation?

    On Feb 20th, Sony is holding a press conference in New York for which we assume is the PlayStation 4. Yet, is that really the smartest move that the company could make?

  • Review: Nyko Intercooler STS For XBox 360

    As a fairly regular player of XBox 360 media (called “video games” by those in the know) I have found that the console often becomes hot enough to melt a DVD placed on top of it resulting in, say, a copy of Mario Kart Wii (another “video game” for a game console called the Wii) that is rendered unusable by said heat.

    In a recent interview, Mike Neumann from Gearbox software was asked about DLC and the possibility of a Borderlands 2. And while Gearbox was pretty vague about the future of the franchise, I sincerely doubt that any game that has been selling so well that we’re seeing shortages, won’t have a sequel. Read More

  • Big surprise: Nintendo won't have enough Wii this holiday season

    This December, a lot of little boys and girls are going to be severely disappointed when they discover they didn’t get a Nintendo Wii for Christmas or Hanukkah. Don’t blame the ‘rents though, because Nintendo is (probably) purposely not manufacturing enough Wiis to keep up with demand. Is there any proof of this? No, but a year after the console’s launch, you still… Read More

  • Mad Catz Adds GameStick To 360 Accessory Lineup


    I’m going to assume that the Arcade GameStick for Xbox 360 from Mad Catz doesn’t shake uncontrollably as pictured above. At least, the company doesn’t mention it as a feature. What it does do is add traditional joystick flava to your Xbox 360 gaming experience. The GameStick features a “360┬░spinner control” that “allows for all new types of gaming… Read More
