game: Second Life
news | 01/18/07 | Aaron Stanton
Occasionally, real-life politics and games meet one another in a way that doesn't involve blaming them for the ills of society. On the eve of Martin Luther King Jr.'s day of honor, a protest in Second Life against a real-world political group nearly brought the servers to a standstill. After hours of battle, the building of the French political party Front National - located in a part of the game where players can't hurt each other - had ceased to exist, destroyed by either a technical glitch or a deliberate decision to pull the building. Luckily, Wagner James Au from New World Notes was there to write about it in detail, describing the interesting blend of the real and fantasy that belongs entirely to the art of video games.
game: If Only They Could All Be Brain Age
review | 01/09/07 | Laurie Taylor
The success of Brain Age has helped to launch an entire genre into the public mindset. While video games will probably always revolve around high action and high intensity, games designed to make you smarter have established a slower, more serious side of gaming. Yet even games that are designed to make you smarter have to be fun, and Majesco's Brain Boost series for the Nintendo DS simply doesn't make the cut. We take a look at Brain Boost: Beta Wave and Brain Boost: Gamma Wave to see if there's a winning combination of entertaining puzzles and something to improve the mind; we're not entirely convinced we found either.
editorial | 01/05/07 | Chris Martin
Recently, in an interview with Ars Technica, Scott Henson, product unit manager for Microsoft's game technology group, made a statement regarding HD-DVD and Sony's defunct Betamax. Unfortunately for those of us who read only headlines and move on, the whole story is not being told. And now it's being spun by blogs with a hankering for a little more web traffic into a false statement. In this editorial, Chris Martin discusses the spin that blogs like to put on quotes and tries to understand just why blogs have no responsibility to report truth.
game: Tony hawk's Downhill Jam
review | 12/23/06 | Matt James
Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam is sort of like a THPS lite, but that doesn't make it a game you should avoid. Building on the old-school THPS timed gameplay style, Downhill Jam offers up some quality gameplay on the Nintendo DS. If you're looking for something a little less intense than THUG or Project 8 for your daily commute or li'l skater-in-training, the you could do worse than grabbing Downhill Jam. Check out Matt's review for the details.
game: Playstation 3
editorial | 12/14/06 | Aaron Stanton
The PS3 has not had an easy launch. While the mainstream media has been treating the system very MTV-like (with unquestioning adoration), Sony's street credit amongst the hardcore has been taking almost daily blows. From problems with HDTV support to shortages at launch, Sony just hasn't been getting the positive consumer response they probably wanted. Now, Joystiq.com is reporting on a YouTube video that highlights just how bad PS2 games look when run on the PS3's backwards compatibility. The side-by-side comparison video between a PS2 game running on the PS3 vs. an actual PS2 is really fairly stunning. The PS2 beats the PS3 hands down, and does so clearly enough that you don't have to be picky to notice the difference. Check out the article for more information.

game: Garfield and his Nine Lives
review | 10/08/06 | Amanda Bateman
Garfield stars in his very own Game Boy Advance game, rescuing friends and eating junk food...even while he's sleeping. Much like the recent Garfield movies, there's really nothing to see here unless you have a five-year-old screaming for it. If you are hoping to satisfy a pre-gamer with a thing for grumpy cats, then Garfield and His Nine Lives might buy a few hours of quiet on the next big roadtrip. Check Amanda's review for details.

news | 08/21/06 | Chris Martin
With videogames in the spotlight, and movies and television taking a backseat to criticism for a while at least, Professor Nicholas Carnagey of Iowa State University has conducted a study to see if videogame violence desensitises gamers to other forms of violence. Skeptics might be thinking "of course"; any kind of violence over prolonged durations will cause the viewer to be desensitised in the end. Well, studies are showing that it's much quicker than expected. You might be shocked from the results.
game: Guild Wars Nightfall
news | 08/15/06 | Chris Martin
This trailer features footage of the two new professions, the scythe-wielding Dervish and the holy warrior Paragon, as well as glimpses of breathtaking cities, lush landscapes and some new creatures. Cool stuff from the upcoming third campaign of NCSoft's massively multiplayer online game sans monthly fees.
game: Street Fighter Alpha Anthology
review | 08/14/06 | Amanda Bateman
Old school fighting game fans, get your thumbs ready. The Street Fighter Alpha series has been bundled into one convenient package and adapted for the PS2. But is that enough for the classic 2D side-scrolling fighter to grab and hold your interest? The anthology offers a great classic arcade feel, but the gameplay of Street Fighter has been copied enough times over the years that the fighting is, sadly, nothing special anymore. If you're a fan of the past, this is a great collection, as collections go, but it stands as a reminder of how far fighting games have come over the years.
