Netjak on how to be a frugal gamer

It stinks being a gamer and having very little money. At least with consoles you can rent stuff, and if it takes a very special game to gird your loins, rental is great, since most games invariably become dull before the rental period is up anyway. Netjak have some tips on how to be a fr...

Very short Tony Hawk American Wasteland preview

Another year, another Tony Hawk game. Though really, given the style of the new one, it should be called Grand Theft Skateboard. American Wasteland, like its crime and violence based counterpart, will see one vast streaming level. Very nice, even if I do still have a giant soft spot for those wond...

Blind man to play Mortal Kombat on TV

As loathe as I am to give any exposure to that travesty of a network known as G4, today may be one of the few times the channel isn't a complete cesspool. For today, on Attack of the Show, you will see blind gamer, Brice Mellen, face off against another blind gamer, Ryan Conroy, in the f...

Nitpickers Q&A: Civ IV

Sid Meier: Strategy God. With the rate sequels are usually churned out, it's amazing it's taken as long as it has to reach number four in the Civ series. (We'll ignore the redheaded stepchild that was that other breakaway series.) Having never played Civ online, I'd never heard of settle...

Serious Sam 2 website scares, annoys.

Serious Sam was a great old school shooter with a sense of humor. The graphics engine was magnificent and fast, and it evoked the earliest shooters (as far back as Robotron) by hurling an ungodly amount of enemies at you. The enemy with bombs for hands was inspired. Slower-paced shootes ...

Madden '06 not feeling the love

So, you'd hope that for their first year of exclusivity, EA would bust out a classic title. A Madden for the ages. Erm, apparently not. A goodly chunk of average reviews, reports on message boards that in both solo and online, you can tell what play is going to be used. Reports from hard...
