If you need us to paint you a picture of what playing Guitar Hero: Aerosmith feels like, get up, take a step outside of your cave and ask the first person you see if they’ve ever heard of this thing called Guitar Hero. They’ll probably think you’re a freak, which would serve you right for taking us too seriously. But seriously, the title says it all. It’s Guitar Hero with lots and lots of Aerosmith songs.
We knew right away that in order to get away with the Week of Hate, we’d have to suffer the same derision to which we subject others. It’s only fair, right? Online games journalism is not for the thin-skinned. We know we’re not perfect; we know we’ve made mistakes. We even have personal beef with some of the stuff on our own
There’s more to the Byron Review than merely the recommendation for a statutory ratings system. In fact, we’d go so far as to say the report the best thing to have happened for gaming in years. Here’s why.
The Week of Hate - you're soaking in it. But while most of the resentment has been dispensed by either us, or by you, we thought it important to get an outsiders' perspective on exactly why we suck. In a daring act of gaming reportage, we took to the streets to risk our very lives and feelings to ask non-gamers what they hate about us.
For those unfamiliar with the enchanting Shirley Phelps-Roper, she’s the most vocal member of the nationally reviled Westboro Baptist Church. Seen on numerous television programs and the subject of the BBC documentary The Most Hated Family in America, Shirley and the WBC have become notorious for obnoxiously disrupting the funerals of US soldiers with cartoonish homophobia and doomsday prophecies. But we wanted to chat with her about games.
Now that we’ve honed your console hatred to laser intensity, we must turn our attention to the biggest snobs in gaming. You know, those guys and gals who think consoles are children’s toys and pour every last dime into keeping their PCs upgraded with all the latest components (no one at GamesRadar is like that, we swear.) When you try to tell
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
If you didn't go out and buy Okami, you suck. Period. Okami is one of the best games that hardly anyone played. Despite having received rave reviews and numerous awards - including our very own “Too Beautiful to Live” accolade - sales for the title were lackluster. What the hell, gamers? Do you want to play crap like Deer Hunter 17 and Bratz: Inappropriately Sexed-Up Pre-Teens all your life?Luckily, the Wii version of Okami is just
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
