Every Thursday, The Overachiever shows you how to work toward those sweet achievement points. This week, it's time to get a move on. We've had some recent news concerning achievements in categories we've already covered, and my original intent this week was to play catch-up with that in addition...

Brand-based games can be hit or miss -- at worst, they're a crass attempt to cash in on a name, and even at best, they often rely far too much on the license, leaving fun and design out of the equation. But the official Deadliest Catch game for the iPhone actually impressed me. As just a game on it...

This week we'll finish our look at the Accomplished Angler meta-achievement. As with all matters concerning WoW fishing, El's Anglin is your best friend here, and more particularly their page on fishing-related achievements (which also addresses a few we don't cover here, as they're not part of the...

Just a week after casting itself into uncertain waters, Midway has reportedly gotten a bite -- er, been bitten by Warner Bros. Interactive. Now comes the hard part: reeling in the deal. After losing Eidos to Square Enix, Warner's got a grumbling in its tummy for cheap chow, and for a proposed $30 m...

Microsoft is partnering on some Discovery Channel ad buy to promote Deadliest Catch -- it's a show about crab fisherman and a badly reviewed game -- but the only things worth caring about are the free MS points being given away. The campaign will have "a number of click-to-video executions across t...

Times are changing. Where previously you could merely craft epic swords and new-fangled flying machines, you can now craft success. Achievement points, the latest addictive means of displaying your awesomeness, are all the rage, and can be crafted up in a jiffy. Well, maybe two jiffies.As a level 7...

We're not exactly sure what we were expecting from the new 360 game based on the Discovery Channel's crabbing adventure Deadliest Catch (giant enemy crabs, perhaps?), but it certainly wasn't what we see in this recently released gameplay video: A surprising amount of detail and realism ... an...

Seeing that lately everyone has been backlogged with great game playing we're sure the Xbox 360 exclusive Deadliest Catch: Alaskan Storm has gone a bit under the radar. It released a few weeks back and we'll admit, we haven't paid much attention to it. But that's where gameplay trailers come...

This week's lineup of new Xbox 360 games just might be the most random in the console's history. Given the caliber of the competition's major release this week, it seems doubly so. Seriously, look at the lineup of games we have this week: Nascar 09 Don King Presents Prize Fighter Drago...

With the giant, lumbering shadow of Grand Theft Auto IV slowly receding, publishers are responding in kind, slowly releasing new titles. Testing the water, if you will. It seems appropriate, then, that this week's biggest Xbox 360 release is Deadliest Catch: Alaskan Storm, a game about (deadly) fis...

Some things are just too odd to not pass along as today we were sent a new commercial for everyone's favorite crab fishing game Deadliest Catch: Alaskan Storm. And ... well, we aren't sure what to make of it. The video shows two of the show's younger "stars" talking about the game and how cool they...

We really were a bit un-enthusiastic about bringing you news that Discovery Channel's fishing documentary Deadliest Catch was spawning a video game. But then we thought of a witty "catching crabs" blog title and that gave us enough of a boost to finish our blogging duties. Anyway, Deadliest Catch Al...
