game: Wild ARMs 4
review | 02/05/06 | Amanda Bateman
XSEED's debut title Wild ARMs 4, the American localization of Wild ARMs: The 4th Detonator, is finally here, sporting flashy art, a new battle system, and its share of extras and secrets.

Featuring some improvements over some of the series' historical rough spots, Wild ARMs 4 is some of the best gaming the franchise has to offer. Check out Amanda's review, right here.

Playstation Live Coming After All?
game: Playstation 3
news | 02/03/06 | Aaron Stanton
Contrary to comments made by Sony Vice President Phil Harrison in November of 2005, Playstation Magazine is reporting that Sony Entertainment is busy at work creating an online service designed to rival Xbox Live. This is good news for Sony fans that were concerned the PS3 might carry over the PS2's continuing online strategy... which means none. Sony has repeatedly committed itself to taking the PS3 online, but has released little information about how they plan on doing that. Assuming Phil Harrison wasn't lying in November, we can only assume that the Playstation's online system will still be mostly up to developers, not Sony itself. Sony, of course, won't comment on rumors.

The Right Moves: West Virginia Officially Adopts DDR Into Physical Education Curriculum
game: Dance Dance Revolution
editorial | 01/26/06 | Shawn Rider
The state of West Virginia has partnered with game publisher Konami to bring Dance Dance Revolution into hundreds of school physical education programs. The deal will roll out over 700 Dance Dance Revolution arcade machines, beginning with the state's 103 middle/junior high schools. The officials are doing the right thing, but they're citing the wrong reasons. DDR is not a way to combat the sedentary lifestyle of the youth, it's a way to create a modernized physical education curriculum that does what it should: engages students in realistic physical activity. Shawn steps up to the soapbox in this editorial.

GelTabz Review
game: GelTabz
review | 01/02/06 | Shawn Rider
GelTabz are an unlikely must-have enhancement. They are so incredibly simple they'll have you wondering why more game controllers don't make use of their innovative design. But they are so effective that once you give them a shot, you won't want to play without them. As natural a fit as a baseball glove and a baseball bat, GelTabz are definitely worth a closer look. Get the full review here.
