Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik -- the pair of minds behind Penny Arcade, which is the comic behind the major gaming convention that's happening right now -- have confirmed that PAX will soon find a home in a third location somewhere on the planet. "Yeah, there's going to be a third PAX,"...

Warp preview: Little creature, big choices

I've been closely following the development of Fez for a long time now, and was especially excited for a chance to finally play it at this year's PAX East. While I really enjoyed what I played of Fez, its boothmate was what stood out as the hidden gem of the show for me: Warp, a downloadable...

Professional game critic though I may be, I don't have too much in the way of valuable insight to offer about Serious Sam: Double D, Mommy's Best Games' entry in the Serious Sam Indie Series. Blending the run-and-gun dual-stick action of Mommy's Best's Weapon of Choice with Serious Sam's ......

Section 8: Prejudice preview: Once you drop, you can't stop

The original Section 8 was an unknown quantity launching within weeks of the likes of Halo 3: ODST and Batman: Arkham Asylum. To put it lightly, Section 8 had quite an uphill battle on its hands.
