Rise Of Nightmares-jco-4-11-11
The technology of Kinect is definitely impressive--if you don't think so, you haven't been looking it up on the internet enough--but as of now, you could be justified for being reluctant to pick one up; there just aren't enough games available yet to make it truly revolutionary.

Max Payne 3 Still On Its Way? These Screenshots Make Us Think So

Posted by

Max-Payne-jco-3-30-11
Max Payne may have suffered the indignity of a horrendously embarassing cinematic adaptation that nearly crushed all the goodwill Marky Mark had cultivated since Boogie Nights, but plenty of video games have been subject to similar ordeals--the abomination that was the Super Mario Bros. movie didn't kill the...

gtawallpaperjcoaug6
Is it still too soon to get excited about Grand Theft Auto V? The fourth installment is a couple years old by now, and while Rockstar's upcoming L.A.

A New Spider-Man Game in the Works?

Posted by

spiderman-jco-3-22-11
Spider-Man's popularity as a comic book character hasn't been hurt by the lackluster Spider-Man 3 and the hilariously doomed musical; a cinematic franchise reboot and a shockingly decent video game--2010's Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions--have kept even non-comic book readers interested in the web-slinger. So yeah, it makes sense that, according...
