Some thoughts on the Projects Natal and Milo

I have now ingested Microsoft’s E3 press conference, or at least the section dealing with their fabulous new sorta-3D camera, temporarily called Natal. This has been long rumoured and now the day is here; Microsoft trotted out no less a personage than Spielberg himself to tell us that controllers are the actual problem (look away, [...]

Panda Throatkick

Saw this Tekken 6 image on the Stiq of Joy and I thought: this raises questions. Hard questions.
Caption this, please.
“PETA’s robot deathbear was no match for the praetorian Shirtless Republican Guard”
“The element of surprise was in Pan-dor’s favour as he performed the rare Leg Breaking Throat Drop Technique”

FEAR 2 and DRM: The Case for Piracy

I’ll admit that during high school and through part of college, I played PC games that I did not pay for. At the time I justified these actions by saying that I wouldn’t ever be playing them if I hadn’t obtained them in the fashion I did. My funds were very limited and I bought [...]

So I’m off to get hitched

Allow me to take a rare personal moment on the blog here, that has nothing whatsoever to do with videogames. I’m getting married on Saturday (the 7th) here in Toronto, and then I’m off to NYC for about a week thereafter for a honeymoon. I’m going to try and get some Twittering in while I’m [...]

Sessler Cracks Me Up

I know this guy gets a ton of shit on G4TV but I really like him. He knows his stuff and manages to somehow endure the unending shitstorm that is the Fanboy Warz, while taking it all with good humour.

There’s always a point, especially when you are writing for this particular audience, where you really [...]

Nerf’s Game

Some of you may have heard of Bob, and his quest to get his homebrew DS game published.
Inspired by what is so obviously a brilliant and sane young man, with no crazy notions whatsoever, I decided to follow his lead and stage my own virtual Tensai sit-down Protest, over the lack of features and content [...]

MGS WTF

This image is very interesting, because what you see in it depends on where you are coming from as a gamer. Or so it seems. This was put out by Kojima Productions today as a little teaser.
I see: the 360’s green colour, a PC’s (well, everything really) power symbol, and little Wii-style “i”s.
“A next Metal [...]

Oh Tenchu… what happened to you

Observe the magnificent cat-waggle abilities showcased in the forthcoming Tenchu 4:

They’ve also added some kind of bizarre particle effect which strongly hints at the player rolling to pre-defined positions. Not very ninjalike. (And get a load of that twitchy ragdoll.)
Tenchu was an incredible breakout game on the PS1. I remember importing the Japanese copy [...]
