It's exceedingly easy to let your Steam library spiral out of control when faced with daily deals and seasonal sales, but at least SteamLeft provides a fun estimate of just how many hours you could spend plowing through it all. SteamLeft uses How Long to Beat's crowdsourced averages to estimate a...

Just days ago, we heard that the DTV voucher waitlist was completely gone, and now that those have started to flow again, the amount of Americans still unready for the switchover sits at 4.1 million. Compared to right around two months ago, that's definitely a marked improvement from 6.5 million st...

In hopes of bolstering its PSP PSN download scene, Sony plans to expand its digital catalog to include non-PlayStation console titles. "In general, there's a lot of discussion about [publishers'] back catalogs that will finally find its way to PlayStation Network in the back half of this year," sai...

This article contains enormous spoilers, just so you know. Playing Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty again, after all these years, has had an interesting effect on my opinion of it. Which is to say, I actually like it now. I'm tempted to compare it to a maturing, fine wine, a substance I'm sure wa...

The B[ack]log finally returns with a special, three-part look at Metal Gear Solid: var digg_url = 'http://digg.com/playstation/The_B_ack_log_Metal_Gear'; It seems I've become the architect of my own failure. Instead of demolishing the skyscraper of untouched games in my living room, I recently...

If you're anything like us, you've probably bought tons of games that you haven't even touched (or maybe just barely scratched the surface). So, how big is your DS backlog? What games have you bought, but not really delved into? Do you expect to actually play them any time soon? And, speaking of wh...

Personally, we've never received a title from Netflix that wasn't shipped from a nearby facility, but it seems as if the firm may be resorting to cross-country tactics in order to clear the apparent backlog of HD titles. According to Andy, during his year-long relationship with Netflix, he has yet...

[The B[ack]log now returns from hiatus which, given the subject matter, is probably a bad thing.]A few weeks ago, I experienced my first proper gaming injury... and it wasn't at all how I imagined it would be. My fantasies of physical folly usually involve a mangled foot on a Dance Dance Revolution...

Alex Ward isn't going to appreciate me saying this, but I recently beat Elite Beat Agents. In one sitting, I might add. If you've ever read one, you'd know that a typical video game manual generally frowns upon such protracted play sessions, urging you to take a break every hour and go stare at some...

Jacqueline Natla is quite obviously the villain in Tomb Raider: Anniversary. In the 1996 original, the only initial clues to her evil nature resided in a somewhat condescending tone of voice and a far too serious haircut. The opening moments of the Crystal Dynamics remake, however, show a more conn...

Well, the title seemed sort of clever at the time. "The B[ack]log" represents one gamer's fight against that seemingly insurmountable and entirely self-inflicted obstacle, the ever-sprawling backlog of games that are either unfinished, unplayed or unloved. That's the "Backlog" part. After surgicall...
