I've been meaning to write my (not a) review for the "Witch Hunt" DLC for Dragon Age: Origins since last Thursday. I've played it a bunch of times and I'm certainly familiar with it, but for various reasons I haven't pulled the trigger on my (not a) review. Part of it is that I don't have much to say about the game. Here's the short version: it's incredibly disappointing. Here's the long version: the gameplay, graphics, and voice acting are what you'd expect from Dragon Age, but the story -- which was purported to be a grand finale that dramatically reveals the fate of Morrigan -- is a total letdown. There's nothing grand about "Witch Hunt"; it's just another piece of good Dragon Age DLC.

…Heavy Rain, of course. Yeah, I’ve already played a bunch of the PlayStation Move launch titles, but this is the first game I’ll dive into. Sony Computer Entertainment America product marketing manager Jefferson “The Donger” Dong announced that PlayStation Move support for Heavy Rain arrives on September 22. I’m all over that! Are any of […]
Kotaku has translated an interesting tweet allegedly made by KeysFactory employee Takahiro Amano who stated that accessories for the Nintendo 3DS will be available in November 2010. If the accessories are available then it stands to reason that the system will be available that month as well. When I first wrote about the Nintendo 3DS, […]
Thanks to WWE NXT, I have found my new "ultimate woman" for the next decade -- AJ Lee. She's obviously a beautiful woman that wrestles, but I've learned that she loves comic books and videogames. I don't see how you can beat this combination. She could beat the crap out of baby seals with a baseball bat she made from a tree plucked from a rain forest she decimated and I'd still adore her. She seems to be the perfect combination of beauty, brains, athleticism, and nerdcore.
This is a pretty huge week for the videogame business. In the short term, Halo Reach is out and it will surely be one of the biggest games of 2010. PlayStation Move is also out this week; while analysts are unsure of its short-term impact, Sony will be trying to make it a big deal […]
To promote PlayStation Move and poke fun at Microsoft’s Xbox Kinect, Sony has launched YayButtons.com. It’s a cute and snarky web site that’s a clever bit of marketing. When you visit the site, you can click on a PlayStation Move controller and bring up comments like: It turns out that buttons are pretty important. Some […]
Supremely talented boxer and amazing racist Floyd Mayweather, Jr. faces up to five years in prison over a domestic disturbance, according to The Associated Press. Mayweather’s ex-girlfriend, Josie Harris, has accused him of beating her and stealing her iPhone. Here’s a clip from the AP story: Mayweather, 33, said nothing as he was released from […]
Warning: I'm going to get a little sappy on you today. You see, as I was in Asia playing Wordfeud for Android with Big Blak and Slickyfats, I was amazed at how gaming brought us all together. Whether it's reading the stuff I write, talking it up in the comments section, or playing games together while thousands of miles apart, gaming binds us (like The Force in Star Wars). It's just a powerful and awesome thing.
