Classic Activision on GoG…NOW!

Classic Activision on GoG…NOW!

Perusing the GoG website this morning, I noticed that they’ve now started adding classic Activision PC games to their library. This is magical news to retro-tards like me, this just got really real…especially for the few games they’ve announced and what may come in the future. All I can say right now is…HELL YEAH Gabriel […]

MWN Discusses: Day One DLC

MWN Discusses: Day One DLC

With the cock-up that happened last night with the Mass Effect 2 DLC and how they were accidentally giving it away for free for a few hours, I wondered what everyone else thinks of companies fleecing us for $5 here and $10 there with DLC that is ready on the first day the game is […]

Admittedly, this is a review a long time in the making.  Why is that? I just couldn’t put it down.

Demo Daze: Left 4 Dead 2

It’s less than 3 weeks until Left 4 Dead 2 is released and a public demo is due out tomorrow. However I was lucky enough to get a demo code for the Xbox 360 version last week and since then I’ve been playing through the demo’s two levels of “The Parish” throughout the weekend. The […]

New Magic: The Gathering Game Coming, YuGiOh Players Cry.

Wizards of the Coast and Sony Online Entertainment announced today that the series that launched a million nerds, Magic: The Gathering, is receiving yet another game.  The new game is titled Magic The Gathering – Tactics, and as the title already suggests will not play exactly like the card game.  Being a guy who’s suffered […]

 

Demo Daze – Dragon Ball: Raging Blast

Demo Daze – Dragon Ball: Raging Blast

I was a big fan of Dragonball Z when I was a kid. Like any childhood cartoon, it seems a little silly looking back but as long as I had my daily dose of Toonami and people with gravity defying haircuts throwing each other through canyons then I was happy. So whenever I get the […]

You Should Be Playing…

You Should Be Playing…

Brütal Legend and Need for Speed: Shift. Both games have their demos out today. While I’m more interested in seeing what NfS:S can do, I know that many of the MWN guys have chubs for Brütal Legend and have that on their ‘must have’ list for 2009.

Is Wii Waggle Dead?

Is Wii Waggle Dead?

The creative director for Red Steel 2 seems to think so. Jason Vanderberghe goes so far to say that the Wii Waggle is dead, it is no more, it has shuffled off this mortal coil and gone off to meet it’s maker, it is an ex-feature.

League of Legends – PC preview pulled from PAX

League of Legends – PC preview pulled from PAX

At last year’s PAX, I came across a game that felt just perfect for me.  I’ve always been a bit of a strategy gamer but, like some others, I hated micromanagement.  The thought of having to control dozens of individual units made me cringe!  Then, Demigod came around.  The RTS game that grants you the […]

 

Divinity 2: Ego Draconis – first taste courtesy of PAX

Divinity 2: Ego Draconis – first taste courtesy of PAX

Now as most probably did, I originally walked past the CDV booth while it was up at PAX.  Seeing such cutesy games such as My Little Baby and odd DS puzzle games like that of I Heart Geeks, I held no faith that they would produce anything for non-casual gamers.   Then, my eye caught a sign […]

 

Demo Daze: WET

Demo Daze: WET

I remember that when WET first announced, it was a pretty big game. I don’t remember why but I remember there was a lot of hype for the game. Well 2 years later and a publisher change have passed since WET was announced and it looks set to fly under the radar when it’s released […]
