Green Day: Rock Band, The Interview

Ask Green Day what’s led them to releasing their own video game two decades after the band formed, and they might tell you that it’s the “thrill seeking” aspect of the band.

The fact is, no one does rock-n-roll stamina like Green Day. They were the producers of angst anthems in the 1990s with Dookie, Insomniac and Nimrod, and when …

EA Bringing RISK to iPhone

A little world domination in your pants, if you please. Electronic Arts is bringing RISK to the iPhone and iPod Touch sometime this summer, although an exact availability date and pricing haven’t been announced. No mention of a high-res iPad version either.

EA is promising “the real RISK experience,” perhaps in a nod to the …

Mortal Kombat Gets Punching Noir Rebirth

I have no idea what this is new video is advertising, but it’s either entirely awesome or completely ridiculous. I can’t quite decide yet.

Quite what prompted this 1990s-esque remake of the franchise is, as yet, unknown, but I suspect multiple viewings of Se7en. Still, I like the fact that the city is so corrupt that its police …

Weak Point: 10 Terrible Movies Adapted from Video Games

The thing about the worst movies adapted from video game source material is the insidious way they reinforce the most ignorant criticisms of the medium. “What do you expect?” elitists sniff about dross such as Far Cry. “It was made from a video game.” Yes, it was… by opportunistic producers, hack directors and actors looking …

DJ Hero 2 Storms The Dance Floor with Two Turntables and a Microphone
