300 director making three games for Electronic Arts

A few years ago, this headline would have read: Electronic Arts making three games based on the 300 IP. Now EA is giving the creators from other entertainment mediums a go at games. And can Joss Whedon or J.J. Abrams be next? One can only hope.

Once the producer of Metal Gear Solid, always the producer of Metal Gear Solid

There will be another Star Wars trilogy from someone other than George Lucas before there is another Metal Gear Solid without Hideo Kojima at the controls.

More young girls "migrating" to games

Baby Steps. The ladies won't be knocking you out of the way to get at the newest S.T.A.L.K.E.R. or Gears of Wars sequels, but more and more refuse to relegate themselves to watching you play over your shoulder.

"In general, girls are spending more time on entertainment activities this year than they were in 2007, and more than half are spending their time using CE devices, and playing PC games and video games."

Can someone please make a big budget disaster game?


It's a long, hard road to get to this scene.

I just finished Raw Danger! on PS2 a few minutes ago... as I said earlier, it started out being a real struggle mostly for technical reasons, and that remained true all the way to the end. In terms of production, it was extremely rough and the budget for the game must have been practically zero. I'm still totally in love with the concept of surviving a natural disaster as the basis for gameplay, but the execution here was just too severely hampered to ever be totally enjoyable.

Jack Thompson finally disbarred!

He fought and clawed for every second of television time he could get in his crusade against Grand Theft Auto (starting with Part III). Backed by a paranoid media and hysterical family-groups, he became their champion of against violence and children and evil videogame companies that wanted to encourage children to murder prostitutes. However, any investigation on the part of these groups, or the media for that matter, would have revealed that Jack Thompson was the last person you would want to be associated with.

Video: GayGamer.net raises awareness of homophobia in online gaming

Gamers, or people in general, always seem to devolve to their most base instincts in the online world leaving us with little recourse but to turn off the mic or hide who you really are. Both would seem to defeat the purpose of going into these communities to begin with.

Game reviewin’ ain’t easy

When I read that No Hype Reviews was "packing it in", being a fellow an independent site owner who also focuses on game reviews with integrity (there aren't many of us out there), I couldn't help but feel sympathetic towards his plight. It's a situation that I'm all too familiar with.
