Was it worth the wait? Actually, this week's PSN update is rather substantial, offering up The Legend of Han Tao (don't be fooled by its cheesy name, it's not that bad) and several demos worth checking out, including WET getting wild at the top of the list. Let's not overlook the classics...

We had hoped that, at this point, this kind of glowing criticism would be enough to make your buying decisions for you. But, sadly, it seems you still want to hear what others have to say about Batman: Arkham Asylum. Very well. Though it pains us, we oblige: Game Informer (95/100): "Batman: Arkh...

So, we thought it would be a good opportunity to wrangle some time with Donald Mustard, creative director of Chair Entertainment, the studio behind Shadow Complex.

Not only will, theoretically, more systems fly off shelves but buyers will have a little extra cash in th...

Well, PC gamers, you had to know it couldn't last forever. Even though you've traditionally enjoyed paying $10 less than your console brethren for big new releases, your luck, it seems, has run out, with Gamestop, Amazon and Best Buy showing a $60 price tag for the standard edition of Modern Warfar...

We talk about a lot of things on this episode of the Fancast. We talk about Steven Spielberg, Halo and some other mishegoss. The really important thing is that we talk about this week's XBLA release, Shadow Complex. We've all had our hands on the game for a while now and, as it turns out, it's pret...

Not only was BlizzCon sold out in under a half hour over the two days tickets were on sale, turns out it was all done in eight measly minutes -- like an Onyxia run at lvl 80. Big Download took note of the reveal during Activision Blizzard's conference call with investors, where the publisher with m...

You know, we were as surprised as anyone to see a totally out-of-context quote of ours used on a Monster Cable site (without permission, mind you) to sell the company's "Beats by Dre" headphones (you can see the screen cap after the break).

I really don't know why, but lately my friends and I are trying to get each other to do something stupid with content we've already mastered. Last night I found myself talking to a good friend of mine and the conversation went something like this: Me: "I'm bored. What are you up to?" Her: "Aran." Me...
