If it accomplishes nothing else, Viva Pinata: Party Animals shows that someone, somewhere in the hierarchy at Microsoft understands the importance of attempting to expand their user base.

Sega Rally's demo served a valuable purpose beyond just giving me a chance to try the game out. It reminded me that the arcade sim racer genre still existed. Back in the heyday of arcades, people lined up for literally minutes to sit in a comfortable molded plastic chair and drive a few laps around a Daytona track.

Good evening all, welcome to the Demo Critic, where I, the titular critic, judge videogames based on the small portions that their developers and publishers see fit to release over Xbox Live Marketplace. Today's subject? Tony Hawk's Proving Ground.

Welcome back for the third round of the Xbox Live demo round-up, where I, the idlest hands in the game-reviewing community desperately try to use a plethora of demos to take time away from the vast, barren expanse that is my schedule.

Welcome back for the second round of the Xbox Live demo round-up, where I, the idlest hands in the game-reviewing community desperately try to use a plethora of demos to take time away from the vast, barren expanse that is my schedule.

Welcome to the most superfluous of features here at gamecritics.com, Dan's demo roundup! It's where I, the only video game reviewer on the internet with a lot of time on his hands, have taken it onto myself to play all the new hot, hot and new demos currently available at the Xbox Live Marketpalce. That's the motto here at Dan's Demo Roundup: Spending a very small amount of time with tiny portions of games, so you needn't bother!

This isn't going to be a review per se. In that I'm not going to go over the acting or the direction or the production design or any of the things about the movie that work. No, I'm just here to point out a couple of story points that not only don't work in the film's favor, but actually render it dramatically incoherent and in the end, totally unsatisfying.

Greetings, and welcome to the first installment of "The Morbid Gamer", in which I, the titular character, provide an accounting of all the lives taken over the course of popular videogames. Today's subjects are: Lost Planet, Gun, and Just Cause.

While I'm all in favor of Xbox Live (for the game demos, anyway), I don't think I should have to keep my 360 logged on at all times to get the benefits.

That's right, you heard me. I've been playing your game "Saint's Row", and while the vast majority of the content falls under the standard GTA rip-off umbrella category of toothless satire and gangster juvenalia, there's one thing that I found truly offensive...
