Windows Vista: The media backlash and my first impressions

It seems like I can't throw a rock at a tech website these days without hitting some kind of negative buzz about Vista. Complaints range from a lack of drivers to niggling compatibility issues to ho-hum impressions of the features.

Marketing 101: Hotel Dusk Room 215 on CBS.com

"Touch Generations" may be a marketing term for Nintendo's attempt to broaden the base of people of videogames beyond, but it is refreshing to see a company put its money where its mouth is.

How did he come up with that number?!?

Is this the best possible way to review games?  I don't know, but what I do know is that this is the way I do it.

Mike Bracken's Geeking Out

Welcome to the first installment of Geeking Out—okay, it's not really the first installment (earlier chapters can be found in my MySpace blog), but it's the first here at GameCritics. Basically, it's just a weekly entry of what I'm nerdgasming over at the moment—generally revolving around Games, Books, and Movies as well as the occasional glimpse into my incredibly exciting life here at Casa de Bracken. I hope you enjoy it—and I also hope you'll stop by and check out later installments.

Brad's 2006 year-end wrapup

2006 was a strange year for me. Looking back, it seems odd that two new systems were launched, yet I had almost no interest or enthusiasm for either one. I barely followed the news, and I wasn't interested in the latest informational tidbits.  I played fewer games last year than I had in a long time, I didn't pre-order anything, and I stood in no lines.

Can Microsoft revive PC gaming?

When the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 were first being shown off, a lot of people got the impression that PC gaming was in its last throes...

Update to Vista EULA

Microsoft has changed the license in response to demand from enthusiasts

Fourth quarter (personal) madness

I'm usually pretty busy cranking out reviews and playing games, but a ton of things happened in the last few months, and my play/production has dropped down to near-zero.
