I am really not sure how this one went under my radar.  I am also really not sure how radar works.  Perhaps I shoud lower my radar a bit?  Anyhow, just in case your radar is also calibrated at such an altitude where things might pass under it, you should head over to KickStarter and

Name That Quote: GTA V’s Lacey Jonas, Lindsay Lohan, or Something I Made Up?

Lindsay Lohan is suing Rockstar Games, for allegedly using her persona as the basis for GTA V’s Lacey Jonas character.  She is not claiming that the character looks like her, or sounds like her, but rather that she acts like her.  Lacey Jonas is an intentionally over-the-top caricature of the stereotypical, idiotic, soulless, out of

UFC 2014 Glitches: The Reason Why Patching Saves Games

UFC 2014 Glitch

At times I almost feel badly for videogame developers of the past, simply because they only got one chance to make a game great. Once a title shipped, that was it. Whatever was written onto that cartridge or disc is what that game was to the world. The E.T. NES game was so notoriously horrible

Shovel Knight’s Amazing Release Trailer Marks the End of Our Long Wait

These days, we hear about upcoming games really early, too early.  If a game reveal strikes our fancy, we sometimes have to wait years to actually play it outside of a showroom floor.  Usually, when we hear about a great new game, it doesn’t even have a release date; it just exists in a hypothetical,

When it comes to Hello Games’ No Man’s Sky, I am as fascinated with the game itself as I am with the uncontrollable hype machine behind it.  Before E3, some people had heard of No Man’s Sky, but they didn’t really understand what it was.  After the E3 trailer, millions of people had heard of

That Old Feeling

Bubsy Grave

At this year’s E3, there were a slew of new games announced as well as some familiar faces returning for yet another showing. Some that have seemingly been in development forever (get it together, Kojima) made an appearance along with a few classic franchises being resurrected from the digital grave. Nostalgia machines like Phantom Dust

Mobile Master Race: It’s Not Actually a Race

Over the last few years, gaming has made a huge leap into the mainstream via mobile. Video games are no longer solely found within the realm of consoles or PC, privy only to those willing to shell out the cash for a gaming device. Now even your most gaming-inept uncle is getting in on the

Evolve’s 4v1 Trailer Turns Hunted to Wanted

EvolveSlider

As much as we enjoyed Left 4 Dead, we really weren’t sold on Turtle Rock’s new project until we watched the recent 4v1 trailer.  Don’t get me wrong.  There was never much chance of Evolve being unenjoyable overall; it just didn’t look like much fun for the player being hunted.  The original pitch sounded a
