Random Game of the Week #4 – Daxter

Daxter – PSP – 2006 When I started choosing random games to play, I was worried that I would get unlucky and there would be very little variety. Sometimes randomness doesn’t end up appearing all that random after all. I think it turned out pretty diverse though. My first game was Solaris, an arcade style space shooter for the 2600 that I knew nothing about prior to playing it. Second was Met...

Just last month his 100th episode was released, during which he showcased an epic battle with ROB the Robot of NES fame.

The maker of QWOP has now released his nex...

Brentalfloss interviewed on Destroy All Slackers podcast

While there are plenty of gaming-related podcasts out there on the ol’ interwebz (i.e. series of tubes), it can be hard to find a show that fits one’s personal style. Destroy All Slackers, a gaming and nerd culture podcast, just might scratch that itch for gamers who enjoy both retro and modern games and fart jokes. The show is most certainly NSFW and I would recommend it only to those...

New Portable Console being made by Bob’s Game creator?

  Readers may not recognize the name Robert Pelloni, but they may remember his creation, Bob’s Game. While probably no one has played Bob’s Game, it got quite a bit of attention from the gaming community a few years ago when its creator protested Nintendo’s decision to reject his application for a DS development kit. After the rejection notice, things got…weird. Pellon...

Hybrid MMO/TV Show in the works by Trion and Syfy

While there have been attempts at hybridizing games with other media in the past, it usually hasn’t amounted to much. Alternative Reality Games and Social Gaming have attempted to create more community-centered gaming experiences, and there are tons of crossovers between video games and film or television. None of these examples are quite as ambitious as the new project in the works by Syfy ...

Final Fantasy III released for iOS

Longtime fans of the Final Fantasy series have had to deal with a lot over the years. Between games not being released outside of Japan to games being released with the wrong numbers, the chronology of Final Fantasy can be a bit confusing if you live in the Western Hemisphere (and Australia!). The game we thought was Final Fantasy III turned out to be the sixth in the series, and the real 3rd game...
