Most game ads are usually a bit rubbish. But we can forgive them, because whether pushing Z listers ‘enjoying’ entertaining interactive products or offending our ears with a cheesy, booming voiceover, most of them are just charmingly clueless. The following ads are guilty of a much worse crime, though. They all utterly adore themselves. Self-indulgent, self-loving bullshit, below you’ll find cynical commercials that have
Sixaxis control started off as a novelty, then became a chore. Then a joke. Now it's come full-circle to become a novelty again, with boob jiggle control in Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 - surely the finest use of the technology we've yet seen
The tower defense genre is inching ever closer to over-saturation, so it's easy to be skeptical about a downloadable South Park themed tower defense game. After all, the South Park license hasn't exactly had much luck in the realm of videogames. And with a genre that is tough to set yourself apart in due to the sheer number of games being released, it's not hard to overlook South Park: Let's Go Tower Defense Play! But that would be a
A remake of an eight year old PC first-person shooter, Serious Sam HD is a game focused entirely on action. Though we were only able to spend time with the single-player portion of the game - it will also feature online co-op for up to four players - SSHD is certainly one fast-paced, bare bones shooter that is an absolute blast to play
Waiting sucks. Period. Fortunately, there is a cure. While many iPhone games lean towards the short, cute, and casual end of the spectrum, we’ve consulted the dark tome of Baphomet to summon forth a demonically delicious sampling of portable RPG gems capable of consuming voluminous amounts of time and possibly a few souls.

Meet Chuck. He’s a motocross racer who finds himself competing in a zombie filled, Running Man-esque sports arena event called Terror is Reality
Games are banned in two primary ways. The first is by corporate policy. When a company refuses to sell or distribute an unrated game, it is effectively censoring the game, but they can’t be entirely lampooned for attempting to maintain a positive image. Nintendo has every right to prevent “Sextrobes: Pornigins” from being released on the Wii
We’ve been shot. Not to worry, the bullet grazed us and put a hole in our coat, not our heart. We stand up and brush ourselves down, trying to retain a bit of dignity. Maybe if we’d been quicker or smarter this wouldn’t have happened, but at least no one was seriously hurt. We look to our right and left and realise it could have all been so different.
Women in games are, generally speaking, made to be pleasing to the eye. They're perfectly formed pretty-faced beauties. But game makers haven't always had the necessary tools to create such impossible visions of lovely. Back in the day, coders and artists tried their hardest to make sexy using nothing but a cripplingly limited colour palette and a bunch of hard-edged pixels.
