Mario and Luigi, Sans Cute

So deeply wrong, I can’t help but love it. What’s he doing with his hand? Crushing my head?

Resident Evil 1.5 Footage

This is quite intriguing…. some footage has surfaced of the cancelled Biohazard 2, a.k.a. Resident Evil 2. Or at least, what was supposed to be Resident Evil 2, at some point. It’s intriguing because this game actually looks better than the “official” RE2, at least from what I can recall.

Man. I thought Rockstar was cool, once upon a time. And perhaps, in the not-so-distant future, for instance let’s say sometime Spring 2008, I may call them cool once again. But for now I just wonder why they’re letting they’re lawyers rule their sensibilities – of all companies, Rockstar is one that should not listen [...]

This Is Not Synergy

Speaking of Haze…

I wish I could tell you that the above image was doctored.
But that would be lying.
Today, Ubisoft, one of the world’s largest video game publishers, announced that the multi-platinum selling, ground-breaking hard rock band Korn has written and recorded an original song inspired by Ubisoft’s upcoming Haze™ video game. The song will be [...]
