Fascinating footage from old kids TV show reveals that when it comes to camera-based controller-less gaming, not much has improved. Watch it and despair. Plus, must-see funny video of obscure, 30-year old, 'virtual reality' pioneering TV show that you never even knew existed. And, consequently, never cared about.
Paul WS Anderson is the director of Mortal Kombat (but not the sequel, so, kudos) and the first Resident Evil pic (ditto, though he's returning for the fourth installment). He's also the producer of DOA: Dead or Alive and the development hell-bound Castlevania movie (which he was also going to direct until he left the project for Death Race, which was basically Carmageddon starring the bloke from Crank). He's just announced that after all these movies based on videogames, he finally wants to just out and make the games themselves. So whose footsteps will he be following?
If there’s one thing us gamers like more than freezing our knackers off during midnight launches, it’s complaining. Everything sucks anyway, so we might as well hate on that clipping on level nine or how Nintendo ‘don’t get us’ anymore. So in honour of how rubbish games and everything about them clearly are, we present the top trends we all really, really, really love to bitch about.
Warning: The following
Earlier this year we posted a video of our extremely handsome mugs chattering on about the most important games of the past decade. Did you miss it? Were you so distracted by our handsome facial hair that our words washed across you impotently like waves over rocks? Good news everyone!
We like to end things on a positive note. That’s why 2009 was capped with not only our annual Platinum Chalice Awards, but also a whole week’s worth of celebratory articles talking about the accomplishments of the past decade. Now though, with ’09 safely out of range for a retaliatory strike, we can piss all over the idiotic, baffling and just plain dumb occurrences that peppered our otherwise fine year.
They might not look all that, but give them the wrong look and the following group of surprising badasses will kill the hell out of you. Wimpy either in appearance, profession or nature it doesn’t stop these secretly Chuck Norris hard characters from saving the world and giving evil the bird, while murdering hundreds of baddies in the process.
Somehow, though, we’re just not buying their unexplained ass-kicking
A lot can happen in 10 years. And it has. As part of this week's post-mortem of the last decade in gaming, we now present for you some of the weirdest, depressing, arousing, significant, entertaining and amusing events, happenings and milestones that have occurred in the wonderful world of games during the soon-to-be-expired Noughties.
When you look back over the past ten years, what will you remember? The sparkly new consoles? The fantastic new franchises? The exciting, unforgettable moments that made you proud to be a gamer?
Yeah, we’ll certainly reminisce about those over the coming week of decade-themed features. We’ll pick the best characters, the sexiest stars, the most memorable moments and the important-est games.
Brad Wardell, CEO of US publisher Stardock, has heard it all. Every few weeks he receives an irate email from a gamer, ranging from “I hope you get cancer and die” to “Of all the nipples I have ever met, you take the cake."
It's a rare occurrence nowadays, but every once in a while, a game you’ve never even heard of comes along and absolutely blows you away. Sometimes it's a little indie gem that didn't get enough promotion. Other times, what appears to be a quick cash-in turns out to be an awesome game.
