REVIEWS Mario Maker Review
Nintendo puts Mario's fate in the hands of players in Super Mario Maker, and the result is one of the best games of the year.

Satellite Reign Review
A spiritual successor to Syndicate Wars that more than lives up to its legacy.

PREVIEWS Hob Preview
If I had to describe Hob in a simple title it would be "Darksiders Jr." The title from Runic developers, whose prior games are the Torchlight series, were nervous about delivering a game that is so far from their comfort zone.

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

The Best and Worst Gaming Moments in 2008

#1 Good Ol' Jack Thompson – Poor old Jacky got disbarred in 2008 and gamers everywhere rejoiced. Finally, the house fell on the wicked witch in the Game of Oz. We broke out a bottle of champagne here at the compound and toasted to gaming's victory. It was an epic moment for the rational minded. But how great was it really?

What would Batman be without The Joker? He’d be nothing but an eccentric billionaire who gets his kicks by dressing up young men in bright colored tights and watching them get beat up by thugs. Every great hero needs a great villain for them to constantly beat on like a rag doll. And the best part about Jack was, he was easy to beat. The dude is a bit off his rocker with what he considers a Christian agenda. He was an enemy who beat himself with all of his contempt and improper manner in court. My fear is that Jack could be replaced by someone who is eloquent and insightful and perhaps even makes rational points.

Truly, Jack Thompson getting disbarred is a mixed blessing. He will be missed. But it’s also a big victory as anyone who’s followed GR’s love affair with Jack would know. And who knows, maybe Jack will get a job as another Fox News “Expert”.
