had a rough game, and it shows. A paint-scarred helmet and a grass-stained
uniform bear the scars of an afternoon being abused by the Packers’ defense at
Lambeau Field. Between the half-dozen sacks and countless other knockdowns, the
Philly QB looks weary as he steps to the line. Despite the beating he and the
Eagles have taken, they’ve dished it out pretty well too and trail by four
points with a few ticks left on the clock. The call is for a pass out of a
shotgun formation, hoping to open up the field for Vick to make one last dash
for the goal line...
Madden NFL 13 promises plenty, from an RPG-like experience in Connected Careers mode, to a totally revamped physics engine. Do the sum of its parts add up to a great game?
We won’t dwell on our reasons for posting a tardy review of MAG again. If you’re interested then read it here. What we can say is that after our initial cold feelings toward Sony’s impossibly large online shooter we’ve slowly warmed to the frantic action.
While the majority of us and our colleagues favour Modern Warfare 2’s online offerings, there is a place for MAG to exist, and in some cases,
Get ready for another
barrage of spells and creatures as you face off against Magic’s most powerful

Medal of Honor wishes to challenge the dominant military first-person shooters, but Warfighter proves that the franchise has a way to go before it accomplishes that goal...
When making a
game for kids, the prevailing wisdom is to keep it simple, stupid. But
sometimes developers make their kiddie games so simple that they end up being stupid. Such is the case with Medieval
Moves: Deadmund’s Quest, an arcadey, goofy, and cartoony third-person hack
& slash fantasy game from the people who made Sports Champions. Cast as a
small boy skeleton, you have to take out tons of your fellow “boney Americans” using
the Move’s motion controller as a sword, a shield, a bow & arrow, a
throwing star dispenser, and ultimately, as something you look at incredulously
as you wonder why there isn’t more to this game, and can I play something else,
If you weren’t around for Mega Man’s heyday (waaaay back when dinosaurs roamed the Earth, around 1990), all this commotion about an archaic, unsophisticated platformer may make about as much sense as the robot elephants that populate Concrete Man’s level.
The confusion is understandable - Mega Man 9 is an old-school 8-bit NES game through and through, with pixel-perfect jumps, one hit kills and crushingly difficult boss encounters that'll shred wrists from here to Japan.
you know that in medieval times mercury was used as medicine? Medieval people
were stupid. We now know that you’re in trouble if a thermometer breaks off in
your butt (since it’s the only way to take your temperature when you’re sick,

handily for low-budget T-1000 effects. Since it likes to cling to itself, it
can make for a neato stand-in for the marble from Marble Madness. Hence,
Mercury Hg comes along...
