Nov 8th - 14th

Much like Mario 64 on NintendoÂ's post-SNES foray into the world of 3D, Halo stormed out of the gate and clearly defined what the Xbox was going to be all about. It moved units like no other game could for the fledgling console years past the original launch date.

Empty Your Wallets, Bold Predictions

It's times like these I wish I hadn't spent all that donation money on Canadian smack. What began as an innocent look at EB's release list ended with me whimpering on the floor, wondering where it all went wrong.

Tribes Vengeance

"I thought I was your yesterday, I want to be tomorrow" When they first announced a new Tribes made by the guys behind Freedom Force and System Shock 2, I was just a little torn. These developers, Irrational Games, are good ... at singleplayer. The Tribes version of a singleplayer Â"campaignÂ" is just an elaborate tutorial.

Donation Winners Announced!

Congrats to MikeSands for winning the awesome computer system donated by GameGuru! He's been with us since December 2003 and we're happy to send him the ultimate gaming machine!

November 1st to 7th

I'll do a proper Week Ahead tomorrow morning, it's 1:15AM here and I'm pooped! I just wanted to let everyone know that donations are officially closed and we'll be doing the draw tonight (Monday) at 8PM CST. Thanks again to everyone who pitched in and good luck! The Game of the Week is Lord of the Rings: The Third Age because Aragorn told me so.

The Cynic Loosed

Disclaimer: The following mini-reviews represent what could widely be considered an affront to the established conventions of game reviewing in several significant ways. First, they are of a length best suited to describing a game in the manner readers are probably interested, instead of the rambling, self-involved mind-numbing missives which I do so enjoy.

Donation Drive Update and Draw Details

This Sunday at midnight we will be taking down the links to the Paypal account and will no longer be accepting anymore donations until the next go around, which won't be for a good long while I think. Rather than do the draw right at midnight we will be pulling the names out of a hat live on Teamspeak Monday, November 1st at 8PM CST.

Oct 25th - 31st

The third iteration of the GTA series is hitting shelves and I just canÂ't bring myself to care. I picked up the second game on pre-order, had maybe six or seven hours of fun and then lost interest. While the second did offer some improvements it was just more of the same game (and its control issues) in a new wrapper.

"A Pink Carnation & A Copy Of Pravda"

Though essentially solitary by nature, we gamers occasionally like company. What's more, we prefer it if that company is easy to come by.

Everquest 2 Beta First Look

Like many I view any product SOE produces with trepidation at the best of times. I donÂ't hold any burning hatred close to my heart like some however, if a game is good I can usually see past whoever may be publishing and developing it.
