  • Fire From My Hands [Embedded Reporter]

    Deep from the trenches, it’s time for your Monday video feature: Embedded Reporter. Ever wonder what Street Fighter IV sounded like before they got the localization down pat? Here’s your answer:

  • Zombies in Best Buy? [Sony, M$]

    Everyone’s favorite controversial, borderline racist game, Resident Evil 5, is about to hit stores, but the Best Buy in Stroudsburg, PA is not satisfied with just a midnight pre-order pickup. Oh no, they’ve pulled out all the stops to create a store-wide zombie invasion. Not only will the store itself be a haunted house, complete […]

  • More Street Fighter IV Impressions [Sony, M$]

    I’ve continued to play Street Fighter IV and here are some observations I’ve had about it: Ken is a very popular choice for Ranked Matches and it drives me nuts. I can’t count how many times I’ve been crossed up, crouch hard kicked into a Hadoken and Shoryuken. Luckily, I’ve gotten much better at blocking […]

  • Mass Effect 2 !SPOILER ALERT! [M$]

    Who didn’t love Mass Effect? The game allowed you to explore a hard science fiction world with an intricate backstory, shoot androids, and have hot, steamy (possibly “lesbian”) sex with aliens, for crying out loud! Gamers everywhere rejoiced when they saw the brand new teaser trailer released for ME2. SPOILERS All I can say after […]

  • SF IV [Sony, M$]

    I’m not quite ready to leave SF IV yet, so let me just say that the game is fun in a way I’ve missed for a long time. Fighting games have been trying to capture the same awesomeness of SFII since its launch; the original was just that iconic in arcades. Nowadays, the arcade is […]

  • L4D League [PC/M$]

    Today’s the first non-WMQ Wednesday, so I thought I’d ease us into it with a discussion about competitive gaming, since that’s closer to a sport than, say, a book review. Online leagues are nothing new to the computer gaming space. For as long as we’ve been able to play over our 14.4 modems (or slower!) […]

  • Left 4 Dead [Review]

    There was a day, back in my youth, when I abhorred first-person shooters. Sure, I played some Goldeneye here and there with my friends, but I was never a Doom, Unreal, or Halo fan. Then something spectacular happened: a company that I’d heard of, but avoided their games because of my fps ambivalence released one […]

  • More L4D in Response [PC]

    The game they were mentioning in the podcast was Gears of War 2. I agree with that being kind of cool, but at the same time, we were all trying to really push ourselves and play the most challenging version of the game. Even if Simon had more experience, I still don’t think we would […]

  • Day 2 Impressions of the Zombie Apocalypse [PC]

    It’s the second day of the zombie apocalypse. No zombie can stand against Chicago Ted. How long does it take to turn after infection? Two weeks? Two days? 2.5 hours!? That’s some of the flavor text littered around the safe rooms in L4D to add to the atmosphere and, despite never seeing another human being […]

  • Left 4 Dead Impressions [PC]

    Hey Dan, did you stay up until around 0300 today playing Left 4 Dead after it went live last night? Uh…yeah… But oh man, where to begin? Valve does not rush a product. They don’t ever release a game that hasn’t been thoroughly playtested and optimized for consumption. It’s why the L4D demo is so […]
