New Wii Kids game 'Enjoy Your Massage!' is porn for adolescents

image thumbnail - see full story for attributionsVideo
"Enjoy Your Massage!" comes out August 9th, and has an "E" rating. Not surprisingly, it's being made by a Canadian Company. After having watched the trailer above, I don't know why Nintendo is wasting its time with crappy games like "Enjoy Your Massage!". The music sounds like I am riding in [...]

Do we need Gamestop?

image thumbnail - see full story for attributions
Gamestop is a target of much hate for gamers and studios alike in this day and age. The employees are usually notoriously dick-ish when it comes to pushing preorders or console warranties, and developers hate their sale of used games as the store makes a huge profit by selling a [...]

Blizzard's War on Anonymity Will Have Casualties on All Sides

image thumbnail - see full story for attributions
Blizzard dropped a bomb on its community yesterday, and it’s one that might not just have ramifications for its customers, but for the entire internet, depending on the results of its little experiment. They’ve done away with anonymity in their forums completely, and in the future, all posting MUST be made [...]

Who will actually buy 'Move' or 'Kinect'?

image thumbnail - see full story for attributions
As the glow of E3 slowly fades into darkness, my current mindset in regards to video games is mostly sitting around, replaying Borderlands out of boredom, waiting for Starcraft II and Halo: Reach to come out. But with little else to do, I must continue reflecting on Sony’s Move and Microsoft’s [...]

The 'Dance Central' Work Out

image thumbnail - see full story for attributionsVideo
I knew about the "Portal 2" announcement and the newest Star Wars: The Old Republic trailer before E3, so I wasn't expecting anything to come out of the convention that would shatter my hum-drum gaming existence. But then I saw "Dance Central". I think it was love at first sight. I tried to [...]

Steam Sale: 7 Games for your Girlfriend

image thumbnail - see full story for attributionsVideo
Two things I hear from my gaming male friends often are "I can't find a girl that games!" and "How can I get my girlfriend to play video games?". Steam is currently having a huge blow-out sale on hundreds of video games for the Mac/PC until July 4th, and with [...]

  • You're right, jcalton, that is a very common expression in the art community. I think 20 years from now, the art community will look back on certain video games and wonder why they didn't consider [...]read » T/S FRUZSINA EORDOGH

The Case For Video Games As Art Continues

image thumbnail - see full story for attributions
Tom Bissell, in a Salon interview promoting his new book "Extra Lives: Why Video Games Matter", continues to make the case for video games as art. The whole interview is worth reading, but here are some choice tidbits:
Around 2006, 2007, a handful of games started coming out that, [...]

The high cost of playing 3D games on the PS3

image thumbnail - see full story for attributions
There were two big stories this year at E3, one of them is motion controls, a subject I have beaten to death with a Wiimote for a while now, and the other is 3D. I actually think 3D, when properly done, would be a cool addition to many games, but [...]

  • Correct you are sir, but I'd argue that many of the franchises I selected are demonstrating new ideas. The Nintendo franchises in particular are chalk full of cutting-edge gameplay design and innovative [...]read » T/S STEPHEN C. WEBSTER

Nintendo ad makes the feminist in me happy

The below ad aired some time in early May, but I am one of those weird people that only watches TV on the internet (yay, Hulu?) so the first time I saw this  ad was yesterday. Did I miss the parade?   I will admit I  spend a lot of [...]

Having thoroughly hashed out these important matters with a number of colleagues over some adult beverages, here's my list of highlights and let-downs from this year's E3. #### Best Wii-Exclusive Game: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword This was the first game Nintendo touched on at their media briefing.

  • Of course it's Nintendo's core franchises ... But the reason they are consistently fresh is due to the original ideas behind them. Playing Zelda: Skyward Sword is believing. It really is terrific. Another [...]read » T/S STEPHEN C. WEBSTER
