Mortal Kombat demo available to all on PSN

For anyone who has been waiting for the much anticipated 9th Mortal Kombat, the demo is now available on the Playstation network. Starting last week the demo was made available exclusively to those members who had subscribed to the PSN Plus service, and as of today it has been released for the masses (the masses of PS3 owners that is). The demo has yet to be dated for a release on Xbox Live, so Xb...

The Witcher 2 to be DRM-free only on GOG.com

While many readers may be familiar with Good Old Games as a provider of retro and classic PC games, they will also be distributing a more modern RPG this spring. The Witcher 2, sequel to CD Projekt Red’s 2007 RPG, will be released on several digital distribution platforms on May 17th. GOG however will be the only distributor to be offering the game completely free of DRM. While this is stand...

Dark Souls isn’t a game to be beaten

I think it’s fair to say that From Software’s dark fantasy RPG Demon’s Souls was a surprise hit for the PS3, and I’m sure I’m not the only one who is eagerly anticipating the sequel. There still isn’t very much known about Dark Souls, other than the fact that it will maintain some of the major mechanics of Demons Souls, including its unique, persistent online mo...

While the whole “video games as art” debate may still be raging in some communities (I’m looking at you, Ebert), the Smithsonian American Art Museum seems convinced. Between March and September of 2012 they will have on display an exhibit titled The Art of Video Games. The exhibit is intended to display 80 games from five different eras over the 40 year course of video game histo...

Android RPG Cyberlords – Arcology released

While I love my Android phone, I find it more useful for its web applications than for the games that are available on the marketplace. There are some quality titles on the Google powered OS, but they tend to be tower defense games or somewhat shallow time killers like Angry Birds and Paper Toss. When the chance arises to download a fun and engrossing game on my Droid arises I jump on it. Lucky fo...

Oddworld Inhabitants Showing Signs of Life

Anyone who was an active gamer in the late 90s should be instantly familiar with the work of Oddworld Inhabitants, creators of Abe, Munch, and Stranger, along with the rest of the planet Oddworld. After the release of Stranger’s Wrath on the Xbox, OWI cooled off for several years. They closed their internal development studios, shelfed the fifth Oddworld title (The Brutal Ballad of Fangus Kl...

Random Game of the Week #1 – Solaris

This is going to be kind of an experiment for me. I don’t know how most gamers feel about their own gaming trends, but I’ve noticed that even when it comes to a game I love, I really need to be in the right mood to actually sit down and play something with any real dedication. This really gets to be a problem when a friend will want to play something together, but I’m in the mood for a different g...
