Yes, there is a Del Taco / Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet crosspromo

Look, sometimes things just happen and there's no explanation, okay? The universe is random and we're all going to have to come to terms with the fact that rhyme and reason are a luxury we're not always afforded. There's an Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet promotion going on at Del Taco right now and...

Prince of Persia Flash game is better than you think

For all the vitriol we hurl at Wii shovelware and farming-centric Facebook games, we often forget the class of electronic entertainment most deserving of scorn: The Flash promotional game. No, not a game promoting The Flash (honestly, dude could use some love right now) but rather those diminutive,...

Point and click your way through Mafia II's Story of Frankie Potts

We kind of like this trend of free Internet-based games made just to promote their big-release cousins. Dragon Age Journeys is the standout so far, but Mafia II is entering the ring with a free point-and-click game called The Story of Frankie Potts, playable right now on the game's website. There's...

Sony promoting DS games

We have a shameful confession: sometimes we play games on other systems. Yes, there is a Playstation 2 in our stately Fanboy Manor, and it occasionally has a game in it. But our DS Fanboy Power is such that even the least Nintendo-like task we can think of-- buying a PS2 game-- becomes more...

Bunnies can't play with a DS Lite

While we can't say much about the quality of Rayman Raving Rabbids DS yet, we're more than happy to sing the praises of Ubisoft's marketing behind the recently-released platformer.

Sneak King trailer wins Nintendo hearts

Self-admitted Nintendo Fanboy Nmaster64 threw this trailer up on YouTube because he says it inspired him to do what Gears of War could not -- get a 360. Creepy man. Sneak King, which -- despite appearances -- is not a sequel to Fight Night Round 3, serves up the fast food thrills later this...
