  • The Evolution of the Video Game Controller

    Since the collective world's mind was blown with the release of the Atari 2600 in 1977, video game controllers have seen quite the evolution. There have been good controllers, bad controllers, and some f*cking terrible controllers. Whose brilliant idea was it to put 12+ buttons on one controller? Who is responsible for the controller that we know today? These questions and more are answered in our anthology of video game controllers after the jump!

  • 7 Video Games For Your Non-gamer Girlfriend

    It can be difficult for a gamer to date a girl who has zero interest in video games. Seen from the outside, video games are a silly way of killing time that some people take way too seriously, the same way you might feel about scrapbooking, cats, or jogging. So, when she hits you with the inevitable “I don’t get it” it’s natural to try and persuade her by getting her to play with you. Here are some suggested titles to keep your significant other from rage-quitting your foray into the world of gaming. Check out our list after the jump.

  • Rev Up Your Lancers With The “Gears Of War 3″ Beta [VIDEO GAMES]

    Fanboys of the Gears of War franchise were left utterly heartbroken when Epic Games dropped the buzzkill bomb and announced that the highly anticipated Gears of War 3 would not be released on April 13th as originally intended, having been delayed until September 20th. But not wanting to leave their fans out in the bitter cold, the developers have released a free multiplayer beta currently running on Xbox Live - from April 18th through May 15th, mind you - to sate their appetites for carnage! Read on to learn how you can get your hands on this beta, as well as what's in store!

  • We Ain’t Afraid of No Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime [VIDEO GAMES]

    t's been nearly two years since the release of the highly acclaimed, fan-favorite Ghosbusters: The Video Game, which helped to temporarily sate the fans' hunger for a third Ghostbusters movie. Heeding the call, Atari - the publishers of the 2009 smash hit - announced back in December that the Ghostbusters would be making their triumphant return to video games in the downloadable follow-up title Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime being released in late March. At last, the wait is over, but Sanctum of Slime is a complete departure from its predecessor in terms of gameplay and the overall story. See our full preview after the jump!

Based on trailers and information released so far, this title is one of the most highly anticipated games of 2011 and could be the game of the year.

    You’ve already spent days, weeks, and possibly months playing through the various missions, side quests, and challenges which packed Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption. The worst part is; you’re still thirsty for more. Thankfully, the ever popular game developers are delivering in spades with one of the hottest and most content filled downloadable expansion packs in recent memory, Undead Nightmare.

  • Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood [VIDEO GAME PREVIEW]

    We've already stabbed, shot, dismembered, impaled, poisoned, and bludgeoned hundreds of baddies in Assassin's Creed and Assassin's Creed 2.

  • A Pictorial History of Video Game Controllers

    Game control design has not always been a simple matter of evolution down the years - more a case of thrashing about blindly and hoping something works. Or copying whatever Nintendo does. Let's now take a look back at the (strange and often slightly inbred) history of video game controllers.

  • Monday Night Combat: Let’s Get Ready to Rumble (For a Few Months)

    When, o' when, will that future finally arrive? You know, the one where humans fight each other to the death for cash and prizes in game shows televised across the globe? "Monday Night Combat" is the latest in the "soon we'll all be killing each other for fun and profit" canon, and it's a fairly simple recipe: Take a healthy portion of "Team Fortess 2," add a dose of any turret defense game, a splash of "SmashTV" and you have Xbox Live's latest entry in its "Summer of Arcade" series. (And am I the only one who finds the phrase "Summer of Arcade" to be incredibly grammatically annoying?)

  • The 5 Discontinued Things We Want Back

    Companies sure can be tricky.

  • Top 5 Video Games for August

    The summer blockbusters just keep on rolling, as mega developers such as EA and Konami are poised to drop another wave of addictive releases into gamers' open arms. Madden '11 is at the head of the pack, but the anticipated sequel to Mafia, and a new version of Metroid for the Wii are no slouch either. Cash in a savings bond, because it's time to go shopping again.

  • Blacklight: Tango Down – Cheap Friggin’ Fun

    "Blacklight: Tango Down" is a new multiplayer frag-fest. While it's certainly not a reinvention of the genre, it is a solid and fun experience. The story involves a group of high-tech soldiers called Blacklight and a group of high-tech terrorists called The Order. They don’t like each other for some reason. Whatever. “Blacklight” is basically "Call of Duty" in a sci-fi, future-y, dystopian setting.

  • Make Friends by Shooting Them in the Face

    Pity poor Master Chief, the hero of the Halo games. While M.C. is truly a one-man army, saving the universe many times over, we can’t help but think that, deep down, all he really wants is a friend. Or a puppy. And even worse for the big guy, he’s not even in Halo: Reach, the hotly anticipated Xbox 360 game which is shaping up to be THE title of the year and features Master Chief sitting on the sidelines for the first time.

  • 5 Rules for Online Gaming

    Solo games are great, but it's also a lot like hitting a tennis ball against a garage door. Eventually, you gotta get out there and mix it up with real people.

But, I promise, there’s a whole fun world of online gaming out there, and I’m going to help you find it.
