Denki Blocks
game: Denki Blocks
review | 12/20/02 | Shawn Rider
Puzzle games are the most dangerous: A good one can keep you glued to your Game Boy for days on end, inciting ridicule from friends and relatives until they try it and get addicted, too. Denki Blocks is a great example of a great puzzle game, and fans of the genre need to get it. Click here.

Xbox LIVE Goes Live
Articles Archive | 11/22/02 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
The time has come, online console gamers, to prove your mettle not only to the friends on your block, but also to the whole world. Are you ready? Well, we're not. In our first week of Xbox LIVE, we've taken some horrible beatings, but we've also learned that it isn't all about scores and stats “ it's about having a great time playing great games, and it's about ganging up on the guy using the cartoon voice mask.

Butt-Ugly Martians B.K.M. Battles Review
game: Butt-Ugly Martians B.K.M. Battles
review | 11/17/02 | Jason Frank
The B.K.M. stands for "Butt-Kicking Mode" and anybody already into Butt-Ugly Martians will probably appreciate the reference more than we do. Butt-Ugly Martians B.K.M. Battles for the GBA is not a bad game; it just doesn't offer us anything new. Derivative, but solid, gameplay abounds.

Xtreme Air Racing Review
game: Xtreme Air Racing
review | 10/20/02 | Eric Qualls
Sure, racing souped-up airplanes at really low altitudes through Nevada canyons sounds extreme, but Xtreme Air Racing manages to tone down the heart-pumping thrills and focus on the fairly cerebral simulation. It's kind of like reading a Sex Ed textbook unless you're really into aircraft simulations. Click here.

Acclaim Responds to Criticism of BMX XXX
game: BMX XXX
news | 10/17/02 | Shawn Rider
Acclaim has responded to the recent controversy surrounding the release of BMX XXX, their latest extreme sports game targeted to a mature audience. The company makes some good points about unfairly characterizing videogames as exclusively kids' stuff. Also noteworthy in their statement is the lack of any mention of toning down the PS2 version, as was previously rumored. Click here.

What's in a Game? A Linguistic History of
Articles Archive | 10/09/02 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
Here at Gamesfirst! we like to talk about games--interactive art, we'll tell you, and the future of art and storytelling”a force more powerful and more frightening than its parent, the movie, or its grandparent, the stage”both terrifying in their own way, in their own time. But did you ever wonder where the word "videogame"came from? "Video" meets "game"--it sounds like a pretty straightforward etymology to get to the word that brings us all so much joy, but what we have here is a strange union between two ancient words who's roots stretch across recorded time”and further, in fact, into the dark night of prerecorded time.

Free Expression Policy Project
Articles Archive | 09/27/02 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
Last Spring US District Court Judge Stephen N. Limbaugh Sr. determined that videogames do not qualify as "speech" and are therefore not protected under the First Amendment. The case was brought before Judge Limbaugh by the Interactive Digital Software Association (IDSA) and St. Louis videogame retailers and arcade owners who were upset about an ordinance passed by the St. Louis City Council regulating violent and mature videogames. In the court's ruling, Judge Limbaugh wrote that there is "no conveyance of ideas, expressions, or anything else that could possibly amount to speech. The court finds that video games have more in common with board games and sports than they do with motion pictures."

SOCOM: US Navy Seals Hands-on Preview (PS2)
game: SOCOM: US Navy Seals Hands-on
preview | 07/20/02 | Jeremy Kauffman
Sony's betting big money on SOCOM: US Navy Seals, and from what we've seen, it's a safe bet. The game is being pushed as an online multiplayer title, but the single player game is really great already. Nice AI, team strategizing, serious realism, and just plain fun gameplay should get it on your list of ways to avoid homework. Click here.

EDITORIAL - What Women Want (From Gaming)
Articles Archive | 07/04/02 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
During the Nintendo press conference at E3, my mind began to wander somewhere that I'm sure they never intended; I began to think about? my mother. It all started during a promotional commercial for their new title, Animal Crossing, in which we see several seconds of humorous footage where a crazed-looking mother has stolen her child's GBA and is sitting at the kitchen table playing while her child attempts to wrest it from her grasp. I couldn't help but recall the stolen hours that my mother had spent on games such as Space Invaders and Legend of Zelda, Tomb Raider and Riven. These were seemingly decadent hours that I'm sure my father thought could have been spent more productively. But as I remember, her gaming was no less earnest than that of her offspring, and I believe she had no less (dare I say it?) fun.

Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos Review (PC)
game: Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos Review (PC)
review | 07/03/02 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
Forget Fourth of July holiday picnics and fireworks display. Give us a fast LAN, a dozen of our closest friends and family, and Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, and we'll be just fine. Blizzards latest triumph is another unqualified hit. If you can stand to wait another minute before you run out and buy it, click here for the review.

Gladius Preview (Xbox, PS2, GC)
game: Gladius
preview | 07/01/02 | Shawn Rider
LucasArts decided to take a fantasy-oriented route with Gladius, which pits you against gladiators in arenas from Rome to Hades, but the liberties they've taken should only disappoint those Classics majors and Roman Empire buffs. The rest of us might enjoy hurling fireballs at our foes. In an RPG-style strategy type game. Sounds fun.

Dark Planet: Battle for Natrolis Review
game: Dark Planet: Battle for Natrolis
review | 06/28/02 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
It's one of the oldest stories we know: Multiple groups of settlers fight amongst themselves to control a newly discovered world, empty except for the natives. Nope, this isn't a pre-July 4 history lesson, it's the plot of Dark Planet: Battle for Natrolis. This bargain-priced strategy game brings some interesting features to the table, but overall it ends up falling a bit flat. Click here for more.

Lethal Skies Elite Pilot: Team SW Review
game: Lethal Skies Elite Pilot: Team SW
review | 06/19/02 | Eric Qualls
Sammy breaks out with a new take on the combat flight sim. Lethal Skies Elite Pilot: Team SW offers some cool flying with a cool backstory, but ends up pulling short just before the runway. Some cool graphical effects aren't enough to make this one rise above the rest of the genre. Click here.
