    Midway filing for Chapter 11

    Midway Games, famous for developing the Mortal Kombat franchise and other games, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. They cite the onset of debt troubles as the cause. It doesn’t come as a surprise to the shareholders, really, but that doesn’t make it any less sad to see yet another…fatality of the market. Read More

  • If you want to see the Joker's real fatality move in MK vs DC then go to Europe

    If you want to see the Joker's real fatality move in MK vs DC then go to Europe

    Let me preface by saying that kids shouldn’t be playing video games as much as they do, but parents don’t seem to care and they end seeing far worse things on their Xbox or PS3 then they do on the news or in the movies. Assuming their pudgy bodies are capable of lifting said pudgy bodies off the couch to get the remote. I remember a time when kids would play in the street with… Read More

    MK vs DC dated for NA, Europe

    I still don’t understand this mishmash between the gaming world and comic book world, but I guess someone had to do it. Midway has just announced that Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe will hit store shelves in North America on the 16th of November with a European launch on the 21st. I guess the John Tobias sketched DC Comic chronicling the events leading up to this historic event might be… Read More

  • Midway not too keen on European Xbox 360 sales

    Midway not too keen on European Xbox 360 sales

    So it looks like Midway, the Chicago-based video game publisher, isn’t too pleased with Xbox 360 sales in Europe. Not that the company, by way of vice-president of International Martin Spiess, is ready to pull out of Europe or anything, but that lagging sales in some countries there are “concerning.” Mr. VP notes that Sony and Nintendo seem to have a better grasp of the… Read More

    Screenshots of 360 Unreal Tournament III


    This was undoubtedly the first and only shooter that I was ever good at. Many hours were lost spent in college refining my fragging and camping abilities. I’ll definitely be picking this up for 360 when it hits shelves this summer. I’m also assuming Midway will have this for me to play at E3 next month. Joygasm. The five exclusive maps, split-screen and two new characters are just… Read More

  • Midway continues to infuriate with Noob.com

    Midway continues to infuriate with Noob.com

    I suspect this will just be a social network for gamers, but Midway’s Noob.com just released another clue: a coded message and a blurry picture. I’m trying to crack this with a substitution cipher using the filename RAIN as the key, but I doubt it will work. More info shortly. UPDATE – Tried a simple substitution. No dice. Read More

    Noob.com: What is Midway up to?

    Remember last month I informed you all that a new “Mortal Kombat” title was coming? Well, I think something big is going to be announced on April 17th a 3PM EST. Why? Because Midway has registered noob dot com and I’m led to believe that something MK-ish will come of it. Why else would the dragon be the dot? Read More

  • Midway reveals new Mortal Kombat is on the way

    Capcom is set to release Street Fighter IV soon, but does anyone remember another arcade fighter from the same era? “Get over here!” Ring any bells? Well, Midway has revealed that a new Mortal Kombat title is coming this year! I remember playing on the PC and it was darn fun. I pwnd everyone with Sub-Zero and had many a flawless victory. Details are extremely limited on this one… Read More

  • UT3 for PS3 shipment date confirmed

    UT3 for PS3 shipment date confirmed

    I haven’t played Unreal Tournament since 2001, but I recall having a bloody good time playing it in the dorms. Ultra-fast network and heaps of gamers who were up at all times and down to frag. Good times. I miss college. :( Midway has announced that UT3 will begin shipping on December 10 for $59.95. What makes UT3 stand out is the ability for users to upload their own content. Read More
