Video: Breaking Fallout 3

Can you really beat (a level of) a Game of the Year contender playing as a baby?

Video: Halo 4!!!

Another video I've been wanting to post for a while.

There must be tons of women out there who hate Halo. Yeah, World of Warcraft gets all of the attention for being addictive, monopolizing a gamers' time and causing all sort of marital problems. But other games do that too. One of those games is Halo. What are the ladies to do when a series is so rampantly popular and shows no sign of slowing down? You stop the problem at its source of course!

Parental discretion very STRONGLY advised! NSFW!

Music games inspiring kids no matter what Prince thinks

After learning about The Beatles: Rock Band Limited Edition Premium Bundle, I thought Electronic Arts had lost its collective mind. A videogame bundle that cost as much as the console it plays on? What is this Steel Battalion? We all remember how successful that was, right?

But this only speaks to the incredible popularity of the genre. A popularity that attracts criticism and praise.

Which E3 announcement would excite you more?

Beautiful Mirror's Edge-inspired photo set

Mirror's Edge Live Action Shots - Savage Land Pictures

Fans of games are always ready to dress up like their favorite characters. What compels them to do so is anyone's guess... actually I wouldn't even want to know. But sometimes you get really stunning tributes like this one. Savage Land Pictures' crew is a collection of professionals who make their living in the movie industry. Apparently, Faith as a character and Mirror's Edge as a backdrop proved quite appealing for this project.

The best game I haven't played yet: Way of the Samurai 3

Way of the Samurai 3 Screenshot -  I'm already terrified. I think.

Way of the Samurai 3 came about back in November, but sadly it remains the best game I haven't played yet. Why? Because it was only released in Japan, and although PS3s are admirably region-free, the Japanese language's stubborn refusal to transform magically into English has transformed the prospect of importing a copy of it from a delightful dream into an utter waste of money.

So, until some publisher spends the absolutely minimal amount of money required to turn the menus and text into English, I'll have to be satisfied with a brief preview of a game that may never see a North American release.

(sigh)

Minor update... got some content up

Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner 2—Raidou Kuzunoha vs King Abaddon Box Art

Been sort of scattered with the gameplay lately… at the moment, I'm still working my way through the excellent CaveIn: Miner Rescue Team on Community, in addition to the also-excellent Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner 2—Raidou Kuzunoha vs King Abaddon on PlayStation 2. How's that for a title?

As for the rest of the game tidbits I've got under my belt, I'm saving them up for tomorrow night's podcast recording. We've been on hiatus for a few weeks since both Tim (the show's host) and I each had newborn sons enter our lives, but now that things have settled down a bit, we're getting right back to it. If everything goes according to plan, it should be posted before too long, and I’ll have a link to it here when it's ready.

50 Cent: Blood on the Sand Review

He's after his cheddar... if by "cheddar" you mean "diamond-encrusted skull"

HIGH Co-op campaigns are always welcome.

LOW How quickly the game falls into stolid repetition.

WTF The entire story, pretty much.
