Digital Comics from the Independents

There is a huge disparity between the two largest comic book companies when it comes to digital comics.  Marvel has had digital comics for a few years now.  Marvel has its own website for viewing older comics and newer comics for sale on iTunes.  People have been wondering where DC’s digital comics are;  if they […]

Duels of the Planeswalkers: Multiplatforming it

Here is one game making the jump from being an Xbox 360 Live Arcade product to now gush out of Valve’s, Steam pipeline. Check out below the jump for this press release directed for your eyeballs only. Because, really, I’m only doing this because I love you.

Call of Duty: Black Ops – Trailer

Call of Duty: Black Ops – Trailer

Holy balls…I might have to rethink my stance on Treyarch taking over the Call of Duty franchise after watching this trailer. It looks like this game will have every little bit of awesome that I love in modern war shooters: ‘splosions, guns, and crazy ass situations.

Congratulations Runic Games!

Congratulations Runic Games!

Not only have you guys managed to sell over half-a-million units of Torchlight, but for bringing us one of the funnest PC experiences we’ve had in years. Your game has been a breath of fresh air in an all too stale PC gaming world. Now that we have Torchlight on the PC and the Mac…all […]

Xbox 360 Mass Effect 2 Patch – Better Late Than Never

Xbox 360 Mass Effect 2 Patch – Better Late Than Never

One of the biggest gripes that I’ve heard from the people here at WPR about Mass Effect 2 is that planet scanning takes too damned long. Well, Bioware has heard your gripes and is addressing that particular one, along with a laundry list of others.

My Addiction To The Legendary League

My Addiction To The Legendary League

Sometime in late 2004, maybe early 2005, I stumbled upon a Warcraft 3 mod named Defense of the Ancients. This mod had created a completely new type of game, like none I had ever seen. A 5 on 5 battle, where twitch skills and quick-fire strategy meant the difference between victory and defeat… and I […]

Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands – Opening Cinematic

It seems that the imminent release of the new Prince of Persia game is upon us. Normally I don’t get all sorts of excited about games to the point where I post video of just the opening CG, but after watching this clip, I just had to share it with you all. That…and it’s a […]

Ubisoft Goes Green, Breaks My Heart

Ubisoft Goes Green, Breaks My Heart

I know, I know, we should all be doing our part to save the planet and all of that other bullshit, but Ubisoft announcing that it was going to do away with it’s in-box manuals breaks my heart just a little bit…and there’s 2 reasons why.

Next Time Buy the Vest AND the Helmet

Next Time Buy the Vest AND the Helmet

Guys, I doubt many of us will ever have the ability or the drive to ever play Counter-Strike at a net cafe in China, but if you’re ever in the thick of it and you’re accused of cheating…you’d better run your ass off to avoid some serious pain. [graphic image follows]

Defendor – Trailer

Defendor – Trailer

Woodrow Harrelson has been on a roll recently. I’m being serious here, his role as Tallahassee in Zombieland will go down in history as one of the geek world’s best zombie slayers. There was that other movie he was in recently, The Messenger, that garnered him an academy award nominee. I don’t think there’s a […]

Fallout: New Vegas – First Screens

Fallout: New Vegas – First Screens

Oh…my…this game has got me so excited. I played the living hell out of Fallout 3 (still playing it in fact). It may seem like they took most of the systems from FO3 and just copy pasted the code to New Vegas, but I can see some subtle differences that has got me squealing in […]

 

Wanna hear the most annoying sound in the world?

That would be the blaring horn in Battlefield Bad Company 2. If you’re playing Conquest mode and your team gets below 10 tickets (respawns) you’ll hear this for the remainder of the match. Funny enough, the same doesn’t occur in Rush mode, so I think I’ll be staying there until this is fixed. Seriously, I […]
