Pirates of the Burning Sea Goes Open Beta
game: Pirates of the Burning Sea
preview | 12/05/07 | Jamie Gergen
It's 1720 A.D. and the seas of the Carribean are the new battlefront for the powers of Europe. Pirates, Privateers, and Free Traders cruise the waters in search of their fortunes, while Navy ships of the line keep as much order as one can with fleets of Pirates sailing their dark colors from the mast. Like pages from a Patrick O'Brien novel, Pirates of the Burning Sea brings the life on the sea to your computer with fantastic success.

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock Review
game: Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock
review | 11/21/07 | George Holomshek
Harmonix may have moved on to Rock Band, but the Guitar Hero franchise still goes strong. The third Guitar Hero features online play, a great song list, and the best fake guitar money can buy. But did Tony Hawk developer Neversoft shred this one up too much? Do a few glaring issues keep this hero from saving the day?

Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Gleemax *But Were Afraid to Ask
game: Gleemax
editorial | 09/06/07 | Chris Martin
We went in expecting Magic the Gathering Online Version 3, but what we got was much, much bigger than we anticipated. PAX 07 was great for a number of reasons - concerts, contests, Family Feud - but Wizards of the Coast's ace in the hole Gleemax took us aback, slapped us around, and handed to us the most complete vision of an online gaming community we've ever seen. Complete with indie game developer support, event hosting, and cross-game currency and trading. Don't know about Gleemax? You should, and here's why...

Carcassonne XBLA Review
game: Carcassonne
review | 07/11/07 | Chris Martin
Hot on the heels of Settlers of Catan, which invaded XBLA last month, Carcassonne, the board game based on the fortified city in France of the same name, comes to Xbox Live Arcade in a very worthy package. While slightly pricy at 800 microsoft points, Carcassonne is an excellent strategy game for up to 4 people locally, or 5 over Xbox Live, although you'll find it best with only two or three.

Entropia Universe: The Blurring of Reality and Fantasy
game: Entropia Universe
editorial | 05/15/07 | Monica Hafer
There's quiet a bit of talk these days about the new wave of online gaming. One of the most publicized is the notion of real-life economies where a person can make a living doing what they love most--gaming! But often times these games aren't really judged as a gaming experience and only get press for their entrepreneurial events. In an attempt to penetrate the "real-deal" of Entropia Universe, it is necessary to make the investment of time to discover its complexity and uniqueness.

Microsoft's Shane Kim on 2006, Xbox 360 first party support, and the PS3
editorial | 03/20/07 | Chris Martin
Microsoft Game Studios' head Shane Kim sat down with GameDaily and they talked about everything from the Xbox 360's performance in 2006 to the negative feedback the PlayStation 3 has been garnering from a majority of the online press. He's fairly candid about his feelings in regard to Nintendo and Sony. And although he does a fair share of boosting Microsoft's image, he does have some constructive criticism about Microsoft as well. More inside.

Super Swing Golf Review
game: Super Swing Golf
review | 01/31/07 | George Holomshek
The golf featured in Wii Sports introduced a lot of casual gamers to a virtual sport many of them would never have touched on their own. Yet Wii Sports Golf is hardly a complete game, and has only one full course. Tecmo has stepped forward to offer Super Swing Golf, a more complete golf title that combines an odd mix of more challenging golf elements and overly-stylized presentation. Without online play, Super Swing may be missing a key element, but with a dozen courses and more golf features it serves as competent follow-up to what Nintendo started back when the Wii launched.

Magic the Gathering Online Gets Facial
game: Magic the Gathering Online
preview | 01/23/07 | Chris Martin
Magic the Gathering is now a classic card game. It's reached such long-term profundity for many an adolescent and twenty (or thirty) something since it's inception in 1993 that it might be the most dynamic single game of all time. It certainly has one of the most hardcore fan bases of all time. We've taken a look at the new layout of Magic Online and we've got impressions. Good ones. All that and a colossus, inside.

Gears of War Review
game: Gears of War
review | 12/19/06 | Chris Martin
The Xbox 360 needed a killer app to help counteract the release of both the PS3 and the Nintendo Wii, a game that would make their year-old system more appealing to potential Christmas shoppers. Well, Epic delivered with Gears of War, one of the best games to ever grace a game system. Even after the shiny new gleam has worn off, Gears of War continues to amaze, and promises to be a lasting online and offline hit for some time to come. Between Gears of War and Halo, Microsoft is holding some intellectual properties that will sell consoles, and you better bet that they know it.

Game With Fame: Play Against Famous Rejection
news | 12/11/06 | Aaron Stanton
Sometimes funny things happen when advertising campaigns collide. In the latest Game With Fame opportunity, gamers are being given the chance to play online via Xbox Live with The Burger King. That's right, some lucky gamers will have the chance to play against a celebrity opponent that doesn't say anything ever. While I can still see how the idea is amusing, there's an irony behind giving people a chance to sit down and chat online with someone that's not going to say anything back. When it all boils down to it, you'll be talking to an empty void for the length of the game. On the upside, you do get to also play with the New York Jets linebacker Jonathan Vilma, but it's easy to see which of the two celebrities that Game With Fame is pushing: You register to play at bkgamer.com.

Gears of War: What is it Good For?
game: Gears of War
editorial | 12/07/06 | Chris Martin
Microsoft's Gears of War gets lots of things right. It offers an intense single/co-op campaign, a "sweet-spot" versus multiplayer of 4v4, and some of the best presentation ever in a videogame. But it also fumbles here and there in ways we would have liked to see ironed out. In this editorial, we analyze what we would love to see kept or improved on in the sequel.

Online Negotiation Games by Zap Dramatic
review | 10/30/06 | Laurie Taylor
Zap Dramatic makes a unique series of games built around negotiating. In games such as "The Raise" and "The Mediator," players must navigate through a complex social web, made more realistic by a touch of unpredictability and predictable limitations. Dialogue-oriented games are occasionally popular (Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney, for example), but often suffer from the good/bad, light side/dark side, oversimplification of games like Fable or Knights of the Old Republic. Laurie takes a look at some of the Zap Dramatic offerings in this group review.

Test Drive Unlimited Review
game: Test Drive Unlimited
review | 09/30/06 | Chris Martin
Atari's Test Drive Unlimited brings some of the best and most mediocre that driving games have to offer. With loads of licensed vehicles and an innovative and fun online multiplayer, TDU is an interesting play for anyone into the driving genre. But some graphical glitches, physics-based wonkiness and repetitive game modes prevent it from being our most favorite. Get the well-rounded evaluation of Atari's latest driving simulator from Chris Martin, our resident race game expert.
