Fight Critic: Why MMA versus boxing is good for both sports

Nothing gets the public going like a good rivalry and MMA versus boxing has all the makings of a classic rivalry. This is old-school versus new-school; fathers versus sons; Red Sox versus Yankees; Gracies versus pro-wrestlers. Let's not forget the latter is what helped propel Pride FC and MMA to what it is today.

ATI's next-gen card is officially a bust

Hardware sites are buzzing with news of the release (finally!) of ATI/AMD's new HD2900XT card. It sports some pretty awesome technology, and even has a GPU with an insane 700 million transistors. It does pretty well in 3DMark06. But uh, how does it do in games?

The end of the Armored Core era

Like a faithful dog that's gone blind in one eye and can't walk, it's time to let go and let the series move on to that big game graveyard in the sky. 

Fight Critic: Should fighters apologize for boring fights?

If you consider MMA to be an athletic competition, then you have to accept that coaches, trainers, and fighters do not strategize and plan on how to "beat the crap out of someone" or "take his head off." They strategize on how to achieve victory and, unfortunately, those goals don't always include knocking someone out or even finishing the fight.

Dynasty Warriors + Gundam = Cool

It's been a long time since anything has grabbed my attention and got my fanboy juices going, but the drought is over after Namco Bandai and Koei announced Dynasty Warriors: Gundam coming in late summer to the PS3 and Xbox 360.

ATI yeilds to nVidia, admits defeat

Buzz about AMD/ATI's forthcoming, oft-delayed x2900xt has been simmering for months, with many gamers holding off on purchasing one of nVidia's high-end 8800 cards with the anticipation that ATI would release a monster card that would surpass the 8800GTX's performance.

Cellfactor: Revolution – It's not a game, it's a marketing tool

Ageia, whose PhysX card has been unable to acheive any kind of widespread adoption amongst the PC gaming community, has released a free download of their game/tech demo Cellfactor: Revolution.

Seattle restaurant review: Phuket

For our readers in the Seattle area, I wanted to say a few quick words on what is becoming my absolute favorite Thai restaurant, Phuket.

Hard bosses and poorly-designed bosses—there's a difference

As a developer, doesn't it make more sense to leave your players feeling like they had a worthwhile ride instead of making them feel irritated and pissed by poor balance, lack of savepoints, bad design or any other misguided attempt to make the final bits of the game "challenging"? 

In defense of Nintendo and the myth of console shortages

The point of business is to make money and it more or less boils down to a numbers game. Sell as many products as you can for the highest price the market will accept. From the perspective of a business owner/investor/stockholder, having media "buzz" and hype is gravy, but the idea that Nintendo would sacrifice substantial amounts of profit and market share in exchange for media "buzz" is foolish.
