Best of the rest: Kevin's picks

Saint's Row (Xbox 360) Sure it's a ripoff of Grand Theft Auto, but the graphics, gameplay, and plotlines are loads better. Plus you get to throw Mila Kunis out a window. What other game offers you that? It wasn't a feature in the recent Family Guy game....

Epilepsy and games: A closer look

Anyone who plays video games has probably come across the scary-sounding warnings about epileptic seizures that affect "a very small portion of the population." But it's still a bit shocking to stumble across a headline that urges reader to "Beware! Video game turn kids epileptic." The sensationalis...

Super Mario Galaxy and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption to be released in late '07?

Le sigh. There was a point, if we here at the Fanboy offices can remember correctly, that both Super Mario Galaxy and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption were both possible launch titles.

Left-handed people, unite! We are the best.

Nintendo's Wii launch party (Universal Citywalk, LA)

We attended (and holy schnikes, are we tired of "Wii! jokes) the launch of the Nintendo Wii at the Universal Citywalk EB Games store in Los Angeles last night, and lived to tell about it. When we arrived at about 7PM, a Citywalk employee told us there were 500 people in line. We did our own inform...

Video games in the Boondocks

Today's The Boondocks comic by Aaron McGruder deals with the trend of politicians going after video game developers and publishers. It's a great summary of the problem, simply rendered in comic strip form. Perhaps Jack Thompson will read this strip and it will change his life. We can hope, can't we?...

Nothing gets kids fired up like a good old fashioned debate about violence in video games between ... Jack Thompson and Bob Guccione Jr. We're all for intelligent discussion, but Bob Guccione Jr. is representing our side?
