Is 2007 the year games break through?

Games have been blips on the mainstream media's radar on and off for a while, but it seems as though things have been gathering substantial steam lately.

PAX 2007: A slicker PSP can't touch the omnipresent DS

Read blog postI’ve read other reports of the same thing online but I can verify firsthand that just about every attendee had a DS, and over the course of three days I only saw *one* PSP. Anecdotally, Nintendo is kicking Sony’s ass all over the place in the handheld market, no surprise there.

PAX 2007: Eye of Judgement and Culdcept Saga

Read blog postI don’t know if anybody’s been following this (I know that I haven’t), but one of the new things that I saw in the exhibition section of the PAX was Eye of Judgement for the PS3.

Disgust on a disc: Escape from Bug Island

After trying Escape from Bug Island, my jaw dropped. it's so atrociously bad, I can't believe they even bothered to publish it. I gave it a whirl just to see if it was as terrible as most people said it was, and it is.

John Carmack and games as art

John Carmack has been quoted a couple times as saying that he believes games are not art, and I was always put off that someone who has such a prominent place in the industry took such a disappointing line.

Toy Critic: Big boys, little boys, and the Transformers that love them

Read blog postIt may have taken a few decades, but I'm happy to say that Transformers are now fully accessible to all ages. What do I mean? Aren't they already *toys*??? Let me explain...

The death of hardcore?!?

There are a lot of sides to this issue and I'm sort of thinking out loud here, but the first thing that struck me when presented with this idea is… so what is it that hardcore gamers want? What games qualify as hardcore and which don't?  Does there even need to be a distinction?

Softcore Wars: Rumble Roses vs the DOA Girls

Read blog postWhat is it about softcore porn games lately?  It seems like the better the technology gets, the worse these games are.

Bargain hunting is hot... RIGHT NOW

Like I said a few times on the boards lately, it's a superb time right now to play catch-up with last-gen (wow, it feels really weird to say that) games now that everybody's moving on to new hardware. Bargain Hunters, engage!

The Heroes season finale... coulda been better

So tonight was the final episode of the only show on TV that I've been fanatical about watching.  Although the series as a whole has been outstanding, and provided excellent entertainment week after week, I can't help but feel that the season finale wasn't as crisp and stunning as it could have been.
