Video Games Live: Level 2 comes out this week on Blu-ray and DVD. If you haven’t seen one of these shows — an excellent orchestral and rock performance of numerous popular videogame songs — then I highly recommend picking up this disc. Check out the trailer above for a glimpse of the new disc. I’m going to bug the show’s co-founder, my pal Tommy Tallarico, to see if I can get an interview. He’s cool like that.… more
Inspired by one of Bill Simmons’ readers, I’ve decided to change my router’s name to Scarlett Johansson. This way I’m always “connecting to”, “connected to”, or “searching for” Scarlett Johansson (this is not too far from reality).
My Google Alerts pointed me to this Reuters story which claims that Sony has cut the price of the PSPgo to $199 USD. I checked a few online retailers, including the lovely Amazon.com, and the price has indeed been cut. Do you guys and dolls care? Would you pay $199 for this sleek, stylish, and discless portable gaming system? Or is $199 still too much (especially for a PSP that can’t play UMD games)? More importanly, black or white?!?
This is probably 2010′s most important week in gaming since WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2011 — the early pick to win “best writing” awards from every publication and professional organization in the civilized world — comes out this week.

- BlizzCon 2010 is done! I had a really good time at the show, but it was super tiring (though exciting at the same time). I’ve covered shows as a writer, on-air talent, and a segment producer, but this was the first time I did the “one-man crew” thing. I was so beat after the show that I didn’t do a whole lot after. I really need a cameraman so that I can make the segments more entertaining…and so I can save some energy for drinking with friends. I’ve already … more
There were some really cool StarCraft II mods on display at BlizzCon 2010, including “Aiur Chef”, “Defense of the Ancients” (DotA), “Left 2 Die”, and “Starjeweled”. Obviously “Aiur Chef” is a spin on Iron Chef, “Left 2 Die” is a take on Left 4 Dead, and “Starjeweled” is inspired by Bejeweled. “DotA” is a really neat StarCraft take on the popular Warcraft III scenario (here we go yo). Here are a bunch of screens from all four mods. Enjoy!… more
