Nvidia’s Beer-tastic KEGputer

Many of you reading this would know that some years ago, I gave up on PC gaming in favour of the less robust but infinitely simpler and more relaxed world of console gaming. A few games, here and there, have nearly tempted me back – but nothing so far’s really swayed me.

Dante’s Inferno Superbowl Ad Shot Down By CBS – Replaced With A “Nicer” One

The video above this text is the Dante’s Inferno advert that is going to be shown during the Superbowl. If you don’t know what that means, then all you need to know is that the Superbowl has over 100 million live viewers every year, which means that this 30 second advert is setting EA back a cool 3 million US dollars.

Unfortunately, our resident petrolhead Nick was unavailable so instead they sent me; and I’ll be the first to admit that when it comes to all things vehicular I am an absolute luddite. Different cars are distinguishable to me only if they’re...

Germany Seeks Ban on ALL Violent Video Games

As citizens of a country without official Xbox Live support, we know the effect that Germany’s draconian video game laws have. Unfortunately it seems the noose on violent game trade in the land of beer and sausages is going to tighten a bit more – 16 interior ministers have put down their tankards and bratwursts for long enough to request that parliament bans the sale, ownership and even production of all violent games. While...
