Dead or Alive Dimensions + Metroid collaboration reveal

Not so long ago Nintendo took a chance on a studio to make their next big entry in the Metroid franchise.  That studio was Team Ninja.  Some may have been a bit bewildered at the time, I certainly was.  The Metroid franchise’s latest entry was in the hands of a studio who is best known for making a 2D style fighting game?   Blasphemy!  In spite of the odd match up, Team Ninja did a wonderful...

Gamestop’s prediction of the NGP’s pricing as seen by its pre-order

So last night Sony had this big event to reveal the totally unknown PSP2 under codename NGP, Next Generation Portable, to a world of completely shocked gamers (laugh).  Seriously though, Sony finally revealed the damn thing.  After YEARS of rumors, most of which were accurate mind you (you should get on that Sony), Sony finally decided it was time to stop playing dumb and announce their next platf...

All 493 Pokemon remade into anime girls

An unknown and very talented artist has redrawn all 493 (this is not including the ones in Pokemon Black or White as it is not yet localized for the west) pokemon as cosplaying girls.  Thats quite an astounding feat that must have taken days if not weeks or months to do this, I honestly can’t imagine the amount of time and effort that went into this.  I can’t even draw one of these, le...

Activision to attend Toy Fair 2011 Mario and Sonic included

Toy Fair is a convention much like E3, TGS, GDC, PAX or Comicon except that it’s mainly about toys (shocker).  If you happen to live in the UK, Toy Fair 2011 is kicking off January 25th-27th.  Part of the reason why I’m posting this here is because gaming giant Activision is making it’s first appearance at the event complete with Sonic the Hedgehog and Super Mario  appearances wh...

How Lexar makes its memory cards

Memory cards, something every gamer needs to have and know about nowadays.  USB flash drives, memory pro stick duos, SD cards are some of the more commonly used forms of memory today.  Ever wonder how they are made?  The process is actually quite interesting.  Each one taking more than a month and being produced in a facility that is far cleaner than anything you can imagine.  Ya know how in movie...

Half-Life 2 done on paper

Half-Life 2 is arguably one of the BEST games of the past decade.  You would be hard pressed to find somebody who hasn’t played it or doesn’t like it.  Lauded for it’s new and innovative approach to cutscenes (by not having any and just making it part of the game), creating a compelling and fluid story that isn’t just “hide behind chest high walls and kill every enemy...

GTA4 – cars gone wild

I think it’s safe to assume most of you have played GTA4 or at least know what it is and how it works.  Big open world environment, free reign to do WHATEVER.  Cars are a big thing in the game since they are wildly abundant and are your main form of transportation.  People always find ways to do silly things in GTA games just because they have the capacity to do so, it’s a big game wit...
