Metal Slug 4 & 5 bundled

Gaming has come a long way, but some days, you just want to get back to good old run and gun action. You, some 2D graphics, and lots of things to shoot. That's where Metal Slug comes in. It harkens back to a bygone era. A more innocent time for gaming. The premise is simple. Yo...

The Bards Tale reviewed

Don't you just hate it when a classic name is appropriated, only to be sullied by a grossly inferior product? Take The Italian Job (1969). A movie about a gold heist in, you guessed it, Italy. A classic film in every respect. Compare The Italian Job (2004), which completely misses the point, has ...

Rise of Legends

Recently, while surveying the shelves of my local purveyor of both fine and crappy video games, I happened upon the Rise of Nations, Gold Edition.

Harvest Moon. Farming made fun.

Imagine the pitch: "In our game, you're given a bit of land. You have to weed it, get rid of stones, plant crops, feed animals, and water the crops. Then you get to do it again the next day. And the next. And the next. In fact every day you play the game, you'll be doing this." When you put the c...

The garden of UT 2007 delights

If there is gaming in heaven, it looks like this. Some eye candy for you FPS maniacs to drool over, from the upcoming Unreal Tournament sequel. You know, I've become increasingly cynical about graphics quality in preview screenshots, but damn, sometimes you've just got to throw your bitt...

Nascar Total Team Control

NASCAR has its primary fan base in the south, as anyone who has paid any attention to the sport knows. Now certain things don't play well down there. Like fancy pants drivers from California. Knowing that makes the decision to place Jeff Gordon as the prominent face on the cover of E...
