Why Are They Riding The Subway?

I don't normally like making comics that are too specific, but of all the sights and sounds we were beamed from E3, one screenshot stood out for me. You know the one I'm talking about. It was a little gem from Doom III. I'm what could be described in classical terms as a wuss. Screenshots are, perhaps, as close as I'll ever get to Doom III.
Originally planned to hit all three platforms, D&D Heroes is now an Xbox exclusive according to Atari. With the look and feel of Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance it may be a game to watch for when it's released this October. Check out Gamespot for details.In other news, Nintendo is stupid.
With all the media released at E3 I was afraid the trailer for the spiritual successor for Xcom would be lost in the mix. The official UFO Aftermath site has a 34 meg trailer right here.

Dragon Empires Interview

There's a nice little Q&A over at Action 4 Life with Peter Tyson, the "Community Liaison" for the upcoming MMORPG Dragon Empires. A4L certainly opened with the question on everybody's mind:A4L: With the seeming wide open play that you are incorporating into Dragon Empires, is there a fear that it will all boil down to a "hack and slash" failure?

Enter the Matrix

With E3 behind us now would be a good time to see what's under our noses rather than squinting off into the distance. I've been playing Enter the Matrix for the PC over the past few days and while it's been underwhelming for the most part it has had its bright spots.For example, slow motion kicks to the head are kind of nifty.

Under Construction

Just a quick heads up to you.  We're doing some heavy work behind the scenes, integrating the forums and comments system.  The good news is that it's going well and we have the entire database connected instead of the double registration system where you had to register seperately with the front page and the forums.  The bad news is that we're using the forum database to link it all

Firefly Film?

Fanciful speculation, pipe dream, or a wish answered?  According to Nathan Fillon (Serenity Captain, Mal Reynolds), care of Sci-Fi Wire, there are forces churning behind the veil of Hollywood to try and bring Fox's defunct series to the big screen.  One might ask why a series that fared poorly on television would even be considered for a trip to the silver screen, and, I think, that's pr
Caught this tidbit over at VE3D, and, knowing as I do, that some of our readers are big Diablo 2 fans, I thought I'd pass it on.  According to Blizzard's Bill Roper the Diablo v1.10 patch might be in the immediate future.  In a lengthy and informative interview with diabloii.net Roper said the following:We were trying to get everything done by E3, but we had a couple of bug things, a cou

The Week Ahead

We only have two notable games shipping this week, Rise of Nations and Planetside. Both shipped out yesterday so call your local geek shop if either tickles your fancy. If you're a Strategy First fan there are a slew of new releases from them as well.The DVD front offers us a few new TV seasons and some good movies so be sure to have a good look at that!

Rise of Nations

[Note: Considering the complexity and depth of Rise of NationsÂ' gameplay, this review will avoid discussing the extensive multiplayer options, which we will address in a second and separate upcoming Rise of Nations review. We choose to do this because the single-player experience this review addresses can be dramatically different than the multiplayer which is worthy of its own assessment.
