We'd like to say Star Wars thrives due to its developed characters and provoking science fiction storytelling, but the real answer is a lot simpler: lightsabers.
Star Wars may not have invented the laser sword, but Lucas took the idea and owned it. Now it's the generic term the entire globe uses to describe an energy blade of any type. Like Coke is all cola and Kleenex is all tissue, lightsabers are all melee beam weapons. They're
How do you convince a room full of journos that your games are awesome? Well, you could put in the effort and make damn fine games that even the Pope would like - or you can ply them with booze.
Here, EA does go the extra mile, creating themed cocktails for the headliner games shown at last night’s press event. A few of the games didn’t get their own drinks (and they misspelled Battlefield Heroes), but we always
Sega Superstars Tennis looked like an innocent enough release. How could a game about Sonic, Ulala and NiGHTS ever risk being banned in Europe? Or so you might think. Welcome to the crazy world of gaming politics, where zombies hug you and countries issue blanket bans
You know that heartwarming sensation you get while remembering games of yesteryear? The one that makes you ponder, "Why aren't games this good nowadays?" It's a lie. It's a childhood veil that, once lifted, exposes how shitty some of your favorite games were all along. They didn't just sour with age - they were never that fun, you just put up with them because there was no better alternative.
Metroid, for example, is fairly crap by
With Mother’s Day comes the time to exalt all things Mammy. But you’ll forgive us we don’t honor their sacrifice in a Hallmark kitty-cat, “I wuv you thiiiis much” kind of way. Take it from the Lotharios at GamesRadar: The highest compliment you can pay any woman is one pertaining to her physical attractiveness. Whops, hollers and catcalls - the ladies just can’t get enough of it.
We know that all you GTA heads are neck-deep in the beautifully rendered corpses of mid-level irritating crime-boss douchebags, but let’s take a moment and consider our roots. Liberty wasn’t always this chock-full of cell phone blabbing pedestrians, road raging grandma SUV pilots, and rights-violating officers of the law. In a simpler time, there was only one camera view looking down on all the chaos and the citizens were jaggy
All right, this might sound like an obvious idea, but WSC Real 08 is taking a first-person approach to snooker. As appealing as that sounds, it doesn’t mean taking the safety off a semi-automatic when a mobile goes off. No, you’ll be directly behind the cue when you take shots and you’ll be able to wander around the table to size up your next shot and take in your surroundings.
Writers write stuff. TV presenters present stuff. That’s the way it is and that’s the way it should be. But as the internet grows, writers, particularly in the games industry, are called upon to exchange their keyboard for a microphone and their crafted turns of phrase for a forced smile and freeform, top-of-the-head chatter.
Whether it’s down to cost cutting, a scrabbling for advertising revenue or delusions of
Somewhere deep in your home is a writhing kraken composed of aged controllers and miles of unused cords. It's silently taunting you, daring you to assault its unchecked growth. You keep away for months, even years, scared to plunge into the brambles of ancient AV cables just for the sake of organization. Earlier this week, I dared to venture close and emerged victorious. Treasures were found, objects once
If you’ve ever opened a text book (those things people try to push on you when you’re not playing games), you know that they’re full of words – often large ones. Why can’t someone just condense everything you need to know into a series of bite-sized, uber-convenient nuggets of colorful joy? Well suck this into your eyeball holes, friends, we’ve got GRAPHS AND CHARTS. (See Figure 0-1 for clarification.)
