REVIEWS Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Faf Review
I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

Godzilla (PS4) Review
Godzilla fans enjoyed the recent film, but will they feel the same way about the new video game?

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Marathon Man

Posted on Tuesday, February 21 @ 18:16:41 Eastern by Ben_Silverman
Remember the 80 year-old gaming grandma who tried to set a new world record by playing Q-Bert?

What a pussy.

At least compared to possibly autistic and likely socially retarded gaming fiend Kelly Tharp of Sellersburg, Indiana. As I blog, Mr. Tharp is smack in the middle of a non-stop, three-day marathon session of Q-Bert in an attempt to beat the 22 year-old world record of 33,273,520 points on ONE quarter. That's like eating all the all-you-can-eat shrimp.

Tharp might just be the (inhu)man for the job, as he's already the proud owner of the Tapper Marathon crown. How hardcore is that? It took 18 hours. OF TAPPER.

Anyway, you can follow the "action" over at the Twin Galaxies site, if you're interested in watching someone play an old game until he passes out. Beats playing Q-Bert.
