REVIEWS Freedom Wars Review
Questions of robot rights and dystopian ethics don’t often hit as hard as they do in Freedom Wars, though once they do core combat gameplay loops should have you enslaved.

PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventur Review
Is the entire Ghostly Adventures series, including the TV show, a prequel to the rest of Pac-Man’s life? Because in my childhood I seem to remember Pac having a girlfriend and a kid, not worrying about Pac-puberty.

Madden Cover Athlete Believes in Curse

Posted on Thursday, January 12 @ 08:18:53 Eastern by


For years, Madden NFL cover athletes have been struck by the notorious "Madden curse". But who believes in such supersition? Madden NFL 12 cover star Peyton Hillis sure does.
Things didn't work in my favor this year. There's a few things that happened this year that made me believe in curses. Ain't no doubt about it.
And who can blame him? After a stellar 2010 season, Hillis suffered an injury to his hamstring, missed a game due to strep throat (fucking baby), and closed the 2011 season at less than 50% of his total rushing yardage from the previous season.

Is this a cop out by Peyton Hillis and an excuse for a poor performance? Or is the Madden curse so strong that even the stars themselves can't help but get caught up in it?

All I know is that if I were in the NFL, I would stay far away from the cover of Madden.
