X-Men 2 Movie Review

AICN's Moriarty has posted a glowing and spoiler free review of May 2nd's upcoming blockbuster X-Men 2. Based on this review and the apprently amazing trailer for the Matrix: Reloaded May looks to be an excellent month for movies!I loved the first X-MEN when I saw it, and I feel the same way about this one.
If I were, say, Activision, and Valve Software showed up on my doorstep and asked if I'd like to publish their games, my first question would probably be, "Why?  Do you have any?"  Oh, I know there's Counter-Strike Condition Zero, and the retail release of the Day of Defeat mod, and these will almost certainly produce wheelbarrow loads of cash for those involved, but it's

The Week Ahead

It looks like the game of the week may be X2: Wolverine's Revenge which is shipping to all platforms (including the GBA) this week. Other titles of note include the long awaited classic shooter Ikaruga for the Gamecube and Godzilla: Destroy all Monsters Melee for the Xbox.

Game Reviewer Ethics

I was originally just going to pass this news on to Elysium and Certis, but, hey, we're all family here. If my uncle can FWD me jokes, then the least I can do is post articles that tangentially (you love it Luda) apply to gaming news.
Guns akimbo.  Dodging bullets.  Pugilistic acrobatics.  And all to a funky techno beat.  The Wachowski brothers have returned to collect any money you might have saved since the release of The Matrix in 1999.  That is to say, The Matrix: Reloaded Final Theatrical trailer is now online at the Official Site for your drooling pleasure.  If you have a particular penchant for black leather, billowing f

Household Chores

I don't finish games. I often don't even come close. Game publishers probably lose millions on people like me because often the demo provides just enough content to keep me satisfied. Such was the case with Freedom Force, and Giants: Citizen Kabuto, and, most recently, Vietcong. I'm sure it would be the same if I got around to downloading the Praetorians demo.
Wow, I'm just on a roll today.  I'm like a smarter, funnier Certis or something!Anyway, don't you hate it when the headline pretty much says it all, but the guy who runs the website feels like he needs to fill his front page space, and possibly his ego, with comments that only vaguely relate to the actual news you wanted to read about in the first place as some kind of self-absorbed
From the title of this article you might think I'm talking about events outside the realm of gaming again.  I'm not.  I'm talking about Sony, business practices, and the questionable exploitation of war for tangential profit.  This isn't about politics.  In a move I can only characterize as distasteful, Sony Corporation has trademaked the phrase 'Shock and Awe', for a
It must be close to E3.  Let the price drop frenzy begin!  In Europe, a bizarre place where they call their American Dollars 'Euros', where temperatures are measured in Celsius  - an inexplicable system where obviously low numbers like 17 and 32 are considered warm - and where they judge distances in the ever dubious metric system, Microsoft has announced a fairly significant price drop
EA, continuing in their proud tradition of Challenging Everything, has challenged Nvidia to be the primary graphics platform for all upcoming Electronic Arts titles.  Nvidia, not surprisingly, agreed that becoming the primary graphics platform for the publishing juggernaut was probably not a bad idea.  Out of the deal, Nvidia gets exclusive OEM bundling rights to package Electronic Arts games with
