Last time we checked, Microsoft’s solution to the Wii’s motion controls, Project Natal was slated for the holiday season. GamesIndustry.biz reports that Microsoft Saudi marketing manager Syed Bilal Tariq said that Project Natal will launch “somewhere in October” worldwide. Granted, it’s not a solid release date, it’s still something to wet the fanboys who can’t […]


[Note: This is a re-post from Ploked from 3/15/10] Prior to 2006, video games were for the hardcore. Xboxes, PlayStations, and Gamecubes separated the boys from the men. If you didn’t invest in learning button control schemes and combos, you couldn’t rumble with the best players in Soul Calibur II, Halo, or even Mario. When […]

Straight from the man himself, President of Nintendo of Japan, Satoru Iwata stated in an interview with Asahi that the next […]


This is a bit late, but earlier this month Sony celebrated 15 years of the PlayStation brand. Before the PlayStation, the only two real contenders making home consoles with any real market share was Nintendo and Sega. Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis ruled the living room. Sonic and Mario. Then in 1995 after breaking up […]


Brock Davis is the man today. Old school gaming is often thought to only be cool if it is shown off in 8-bit glory, but what happens when you take 8-bit visuals and give it an abstract brush texture? The results are stunning pieces of art that I would love to have on my wall. […]
