Most of you know my television habits -- I watch WWE wrestling, HBO boxing, Entourage, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and American Idol. Compared to most of my friends, I don't watch a lot of TV. I never got into Lost or 24. While I've enjoyed some episodes of Dexter, 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, True Blood, and [insert popular show here], I never really cared enough to follow those series regularly. I'm generally more entertained by the Internet than television, but there's one thing that would absolutely keep me glued to the tube: Wikipedia TV.
Back at E3 2010 I wrote the following about Namco Bandai’s Enslaved: Odyssey to the West: Combining action, puzzle solving, and escort missions, Ninja Theory’s Enslaved: Odyssey to the West offers variety, a cool setting, and a dose of Gollum. The game has a unique look and some fun “imitation cooperative” gameplay. While I’m not […]
I’m really not an MMO guy anymore (went through a bad EverQuest phase and I’m scared to be that way again), but the more I see of DC Universe Online, the more excited I am for the game. I’m pretty sure this game will drag me back to the dark side. I’m a videogame nerd […]
Remember my Shacknews preview of Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom from E3 2010? At the time I said: Flying under the radar at E3 2010 was Game Republic’s upcoming title that combines Ico-like graphics, stealth, puzzles, and an adorably goofy creature that looks like a Studio Ghibli reject. The diverse gameplay on display was fun […]
Here’s fresh batch of WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2011 screens — you know, that game with the phenomenal writing? This set includes shots of John Cena, The Miz, Randy Orton, The Undertaker, Raymond Stereo Rey Mysterio, Jack Swagger, Sheamus, Bret “The Hitman” Hart, and sexy WWE Divas. There are no tables or chairs to be […]
I've been having a blast with foursquare for the last two months. A lot of people hate the location-based check-in service, but I don't think they get it. Sure, it's another way for vain people to use the Internet to share more mundane details of their mundane lives, but foursquare can be fun and useful. I love checking out where my friends eat, drink, and shop; I'm more likely to try a restaurant an IRL friend likes than a random one. The baseball lover in me marks out at all the stats available on foursquare; it's interesting to see the patterns and statistics of your social life.
A four-player cooperative Ratchet & Clank game from the awesome people at Insomniac?!? In the immortal words of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, “Oh hell yeah!!!” Here’s the scoop from Insomniac studio director Chad Dezern: We knew from our earliest meetings that we wanted to give players a chance to play in the Ratchet Universe with Ratchet […]
The latest LittleBigPlanet 2 trailer features Sackboy torching a cat. That’s cool. It also shows numerous features of the game’s story mode and creation mode. It looks seriously awesome. I hope you check it out and share your thoughts. Aug 17, 2010RPadTV
