Mr. Bill splats onto iPhone and iPod touch

on Fri, Sep 24, 2010 | By Jeffrey L. Wilson

’70s babies who caught the tail-end of SNL‘s first era of greatness will appreciate Capcom latest Apple iPhone and iPod touch video game: Mr. Bill. In the game, the clay icon who taught America to laugh without guilt at animated abuse is (for some reason) applying for a job as a human cannonball at Sluggo Big-Time Circus. After being shot from the cannon, players...

Hands-On with HOARD

on Fri, Sep 24, 2010 | By John De Large

Tyler Sigman is an award-winning game designer, writer, teacher, former aerospace engineer and mad genius to boot. More importantly though, Tyler is the man behind HOARD, one of the most bad ass dual stick shooters I have ever played. HOARD doesn’t let you take control of a human fighting off many enemies; Tyler wanted a bigger hero, a larger than life main character,...

Rocket Knight (PSN) Review – A 16-bit darling returns

rocket knight review
on Thu, Sep 23, 2010 | By Tim Torres

Konami and Climax, after their successful reimagining of Silent Hill, dove into the past once more earlier this year with a download-only sequel to Rocket Knight Adventures. Is it as good as the original Genesis classic? Almost! Rocket Knight does what it can within its budget to pay homage to the essential, original video game. The music from the classic’s first stage...

Lucha Libre AAA: Heroes del Ring impressions

on Thu, Sep 23, 2010 | By Jeffrey L. Wilson

E3 2010 was the place where many first got their mitts on Luca Libre AAA: Heroes del Ring, the upcoming PS2, Xbox 360, and Wii wrestling video game–myself included. I reported on the game’s colorful characters, fun move sets, and tight controls in my original hands-on, but I recently had a second opportunity to dig into the title at a recent presser in New York...

Giant NES coffee table: Is it living room worthy?

on Wed, Sep 22, 2010 | By Becki Lee Chiasson

This NES coffee table, built by mattcyborgelt, is either insufferably geeky or spectacularly geeky, depending on your point of view (and I’m squarely in the “spectacular” camp). But either way, you’ve gotta agree: it’s pretty geeky. On top of the table is a giant, fully-functional NES controller. It’s wireless, so it doesn’t plug into the ports on the front...

PAX Prime 2010: Hands-On with SpyParty

on Tue, Sep 21, 2010 | By John De Large

SpyParty is a two player tactical espionage game and it is easily the best spy game I’ve ever played. SpyParty doesn’t involve big explosions, clever gadgets or mindlessly killing people, but it’s still one of the most gripping, tense and engrossing experiences you can have with a video game. SpyParty lets one player take control of a Spy who must attend...

If only all charity drives were like this. Robert Bowling, Community Manager for Infinity Ward is pwning himself out for charity. On October 16, he will play a 24-hour session of Modern Warfare 2 to raise money for the Los Angeles Children’s Hospital. He will participate in a day-long match with Pixel Enemy Producer and MW2 commentator BrassMonkeigh. BrassMonkeigh is reaching...
