Mech Assault 2 First Impressions

Sanjuro was kind enough to send us some early impressions of Day 1's just released Mech Assault 2: Lone Wolf for the Xbox. He gives us a look at both the single and multiplayer modes which will hopefully help you make a purchase decision.

It is, as you probably have already suspected, because it's the holidays and dammit we're just going to put our feet up and relax for a couple of days.

Naked Wayne Brady

A while back, in the intro to my first article, I casually dropped the name Wayne Brady, attached to a sentence about seeing him naked. This was no accident.

Your wallets are safe this week, there are absolutly no games worth mentioning. It's time to hunker down and play what you have or possibly threaten your loved ones if they refuse to give you that game you wanted for Christmas early.

I Don't Want To Go On The Cart

So the year of the PC renaissance draws wearily to a close, and some of the best games ever to be released on the platform hold dominant, if quiet, sway over their tiny dominion.  I envy any man who can sit down and declare a PC game of the year in the coming weeks without addenduming every caveat in the book – yes, I did just create a present participle of the completely imaginary verb Â&qu
