The eccentric games developer and Grasshopper Manufacture CEO Goichi ‘Suda51’ Suda has found fame for his last two big-name games - No More Heroes and Killer 7 - but as a producer, he’s got a list of innovative hits as long as an elephant’s nasal spray. These include Michigan: Report from Hell, which takes place entirely behind a film crew’s camera, and soon-to-be-DSed adventure game The Silver Case. He’s
Game - 1. an amusement or pastime 2. fun; sport of any kind; joke
During their short history, videogames have grown from static screens of beeps and blips to artistic dreamscapes. Flashy graphics and memorable characters would be nothing without crafty design innovations like ragdoll physics and branching storylines that make games what they are today. But how many times
The fluffy, mom-friendly Nintendo brand has abandoned its core audience. Or so say the die-hards who moan about Nintendo’s abandonment of hardcore gamers for little girls and the elderly. The runaway mainstream success of the Wii only makes the pill that much more bitter. To compensate, here are 100 of Nintendo’s most fantastic follies set to our
Spending a childhood playing JRPGs has given me a great respect for them, but I'm not a child anymore and the games haven't grown up with me.

If you can’t stand to see your precious PlayStation savaged thusly, sit tight. Tomorrow we’ll tighten the thumbscrews on Nintendo. Let the Two Minutes of

We'd rather be stabbed in our necks with rusty ice picks than try to hold any sort of conversation with one of these imbeciles. Emergency tracheotomies would both be less painful, and more likely to get us shots of morphine - a far more desirable experience.We're referring to rare, but very real individuals who by some astonishing means perfectly embody corny, old gamer stereotypes that definitely shouldn't describe any actual person ever.

Out of all groups of people, doing all types of hobbies, gamers hate the most. Gamers (and yes, we include ourselves in this) moan. Christ do they moan. They moan about hardware prices, software prices, they moan about missed release dates and they moan that the game's not finished if does come out on time. Gamers hate buying games that turn out to be rubbish, but say they hate or don't trust reviews. Gamers moan about graphics, sound and
What could we possibly hate about gaming? Try this little lot...
If you want to get ahead, get a hat. Preferably one that makes you look like you’ve ripped the face off a Nintendo character and you’re wearing it like a macabre trophy.
