App Club: The Horrible Vikings

I liked Earth vs. Moon. Even thought it sometimes made me weep until my iPhone’s touchscreen was slick and piezoelectrically confused by the multi-touches of my hot salty tears.

So I jumped on the second game by the same developers, Low Five Games, which is called The Horrible Vikings.

The contrast with their first game could not …

ESPN Coming To Xbox Live In The US?

Microsoft has sold over 39 million Xbox 360s since 2005 and some 20 million members peruse Live services like Netflix and Twitter (assuming you have a Gold membership) every month, aside from fragging friends in TF2 or MW2. We can joke all we want about the servers going down hours after the launch of a popular new game, but it doesn’t …

Wife Catches Husband Letting 5-Yr-Old Daughter Watch Him Play AC2

Young daughter watches her father play “Assassin’s Creed 2″ on his Xbox 360.

DAUGHTER: Daddy, are you killing that man with a sword?
HUSBAND: Sweetheart, it’s not a sword. It’s a hidden wrist-blade handed down from generation to generation by a league of secret assassins.

8-bit Dark Void Zero Available for Download

Capcom’s retro 8-bit Dark Void Zero went on sale today on Nintendo’s DSI Shop for 500 points ($5). Billed as a “lost project” (read the details here), DV0 is a prequel of sorts to tomorrow’s Dark Void third-person shooter for the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The SNES-style box art adds a nice touch, don’t you think?


Patience Is a Virtue, Especially When Buying Games

Wait longer, pay less. This adage applies to nearly anything on your shopping list, but as I’m looking at some of the deals on Amazon.com right now, it seems to apply to videogames even more. Some of last year’s best titles—Assassin’s Creed 2, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, Forza 3 to name a few—are currently selling at a 25% …

Hello Internet People-

It’s January 15, 2010, and for those keeping track, it’s our two-month anniversary. To those of you that have been here since Nerd World, we really appreciate you coming back and dealing with the change. I hate change just as much as you do but I would not have signed up for this gig if I didn’t think I …

App Club: N.O.V.A. Halo Goodbye.

Look, it’s not like I could make a better shooter for the iPhone. And it’s not like I couldn’t imagine someone else really loving N.O.V.A. It’s just that that person isn’t me.

I feel strangely protective of N.O.V.A. Like the drawings my daughter makes, which you want to praise except you can’t tell what they are.

I mean, it really …

Aliens vs. Predator versus Alien vs. Predator

Sega’s Aliens vs. Predator game comes out on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC next month. As a huge fan of the Alien and Predator franchises, I’m praying for a favorable outcome because it’s been a while since these classic sci-fi heavyweights have starred in a worthy vehicle (games or movies: take your pick). 1999’s Aliens vs.
