Right, it’s that time of year again. No one wants to write about the “best Wii games of 2010” so they get ol’ Nintendo fanboy Elston to cobble a list together. Well, you know what? Screw you guys. Wii takes a lot of shit from all sides, but that doesn’t change the fact that there are outstanding games coming out (almost) every month. C’mon, once you get past the shovelware, the needless motion controls, lackluster online support and sub-HD graphics, there’s… uh, OK yeah that sounds awful.
But even with all those setbacks, these 10 non-Nintendo titles managed to create interesting worlds, new ideas and memorable stories that so many of us “real” gamers passed on...

The end of summer means the beginning of the game season, and today is the last Friday before the game industry’s big holiday push. Publishers jam the fall with games to challenge the true worth of your credit card – a double dog dare in the uncertain economy of 2009.
Gamescom is unquestionably more low profile than E3’s explosive LA shindig. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of reasons to get pumped up for the upcoming event in Cologne. Hell, we can think of, oh, at least 23 examples why you should give a damn about the ‘European E3.’ And they all take the form of potentially amazing games. Below you’ll find a line-up of some of the most exciting titles due to
It's a rare occurrence nowadays, but every once in a while, a game you’ve never even heard of comes along and absolutely blows you away. Sometimes it's a little indie gem that didn't get enough promotion. Other times, what appears to be a quick cash-in turns out to be an awesome game.
Who says a Week of Hate has to be all hurt and no healing? Activision is a company people love to hate, but let’s take a break from dogpiling on the monolithic publisher for its past misdeeds. We thought it’d be more interesting if we could get to the bottom of all the abject ire and the hardcore schadenfreude, to get to the bottom of gamer’s beef with the company. To help us in our quest, Acitivsion’s own community manager, Dan Amrich is going to help us trace back the origins of the anger, where hopefully we can see of how the publisher of Pitfall has managed to cast one of the most negative shadows in the medium.
