[Editor's Note: This is a follow up to the original Why We Need To Play As The Taliban article. Please read that piece before diving into this one.] I am officially pissed at EA. After all the fuss in putting the Taliban in the new Medal of Honor, and all the corporate non-answers they gave for justifying it, they responded to the subsequent backlash by – you guessed it...

on Fri, Oct 1, 2010 | By Laurie-Anne Vazquez

TimeWasters highlights many of the excellent, free Web-based/lightweight downloadable titles that you can dive into within the space of a lunch break. This outing, Laurie-Anne Vazquez explores Mirror’s Edge 2D. If you thought 2D flash video games were all movie tie-ins like 8-bit The Expendables or endless variations of Farmville, you haven’t seen EA’s Mirror’s...

Old School Adventure
on Thu, Sep 30, 2010 | By John De Large

There are lots of retro-esque video games available for download via Xbox Live Arcade, some of which might remind gamers of childhood, action figures, finger-paints, even milk and cookies. And then there’s Old School Adventure. Old School Adventure is more likely to remind gamers of broken controllers, frustrated tantrums, and staying up until 3AM playing the same level...

O.G.s (original gamers) have fond memories of Atari’s early-80′s pseudo-survival horror classic Haunted House–and I’m one of them.

Despite the very rudimentary graphics, it was a fun and surprisingly...

Drawn: Dark Flight (PC) Review – A pleasing adventure

on Tue, Sep 28, 2010 | By Laurie-Anne Vazquez

I don’t expect much out of Big Fish Games’ library: Sally runs every business under the sun, Farm Frenzy gets repetitive once you purchase the bakery, and every puzzle game is a repetitive point-and-click affair. Except Drawn: Dark Flight. A sequel to Drawn: The Painted Tower, Dark Flight is a richly rendered 2D video game that takes place in a land overrun by shadows....
