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 […]

 

Who doesn’t love delicious baby animals?

Who doesn’t love delicious baby animals?

I am a foodie. I love exploring food, tastes, textures, colors, everything about food. I run a blog with my sister (mostly it’s me doing the work) and Ryan Thomason asked me to give WPR a go. I’d love to write about foods, especially new items seen on the market. I work in a grocery […]

 

Food Revolution

Food Revolution

What has our country come to? This is absolutely devastating to me. I just watched this ‘sneak peak’ of the new show Food Revolution on ABC. The school system in Huntington serve pizza for breakfast. Why, you may ask. Because it meets the MyPyramid food requirements, and it’s cheap.

 

Valve updates Portal again, “Added valuable asset retrieval”

Valve updates Portal again, “Added valuable asset retrieval”

I love Valve. Really one of the few amazing game companies out there. As we told you about yesterday, Portal had an update that added an achievement and some strange things came out of it. Well guess what, Valve updated Portal again, today! And what they added may have given us a clue to what […]

Steam on Mac – Confirmed

Steam on Mac – Confirmed

Well damn, looks like it wasn’t rumor or speculation at all. Turns out that it’s completely true! The guys over at Valve have been sending assets over to MacRumors this whole week teasing them about the whole “will they or won’t they” game that we all used as children to torture others. This is surprisingly […]

 

Weekend Steam Deals: Mount & Blade

Weekend Steam Deals: Mount & Blade

The Steam weekend deals were announced today and their big discount this time is 85% off of some game called Mount & Blade. Think Elder Scrolls: Oblivion on a horse and you have the basic idea. Yours truly got to spend an hour playing the demo for this game and my conclusion is this: I […]

 

A Comic After Our Own Hearts

A Comic After Our Own Hearts

If there is anything we like more than video games, comic books or movies here at Media Whore Network it’s bacon. The smell of it, the taste of it, the texture. Why, some of us might even go as far as to say they lost their genitalia in an unfortunate bacon accident! So when I […]

New L4D2 Details and a Video

New L4D2 Details and a Video

Man, the glut of Left 4 Dead 2 information just keeps rolling in. For all of you doubters who thought that the new L4D was going to be exactly like its predecessor, do we have news for you. As of writing this, there are 2 new types of zombies that you’ll encounter/be able to use, […]

‘Family Games’ on Steam

‘Family Games’ on Steam

C’mon Valve, really? Is there really a need to further segment the gaming community who loves your service? I guess so. As it stands right now there are currently 120 games listed under the new Family Games category on Steam. From what I saw, many of the games were…how can I put it…more girly than […]

Holy Shit, Portal on iPhone

I don’t know if its for real or not, but regardless of whether it’s the real deal from Steam or just some guys making a version that can run on the iPhone, I want it.

Fallout 3 Makin’ A Killing on Steam

Fallout 3 Makin’ A Killing on Steam

You know what’s funny? Seeing games like Fallout 3 (that are almost a year old) jump to the top of the sales charts for the week only because the company decides to have a ‘half-off sale’ for the weekend. We have all learned one thing about games, the cheaper you make ’em, the more people […]

Left 4 Dead 2 multiplayer demo incoming

Most here at MWN are pretty big fans of Valve’s monster hit Left 4 Dead, and I for one am ready to welcome the sequel with open arms when it’s released later on this year.  Valve announced yesterday that they have plans to release a multi-player demo which if you pre-order via Steam or participating […]
