We received a lot of tips today from people who ordered the new $99 Apple TV on September 1st and have, like me, been anxiously checking the order status in the online Apple Store. As of today, many orders are showing the message you see above -- that the device has been "prepared for shipment" som...

We're not sure whether or not it's actually ironic that Vampire's Rain is the only game being released on Xbox 360 this week, but given its premise -- Splinter Cell with vampires instead of terrorists -- we're pretty sure that it is, at least, akin to ray-eee-ain on your wedding day. A quick search ...

Ladies and gentlemen, girls and boys, squirrels and hamsters, it's a big week for our beloved Xbox 360. Not only do we finally get to sample the heart-eating goodness of The Darkness (a game we're giving away, by the way), but we also have a plethora of other games arriving as well. In fact, there ...

It's another lonely week for new Xbox 360 games. After receiving both Forza Motorsport 2, Shadowrun and more last week, this week we receive precisely one new title. This week we get Call of Juarez, a spaghetti western made into a video game. If shooting down bad guys with a six shooter while s...

It's a pretty big week for the Xbox 360. This week we see the release of two of Microsoft's major releases for the summer, Shadowrun and Forza Motorsport 2. Not only that, but also get Monster Madness and Surf's Up. You know, on second thought, maybe we should just stick to the first two. Honestly,...

The thin gaming trickle of spring continues this week with yet another movie tie-in (last week we got Shrek the Third). This week we get the Depp-tastic Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End. We're generally leery of any movie tie-ins, especially those that launch simultaneously with the associat...

It looks like the spring game doldrums have arisen once again. Having been blessed with the arrival of Command & Conquer 3 last week, we are now faced with the onslaught of a large ogre, his boot-wearing cat, and his talking ass. Not to be pessimistic, but we've sampled the demo of Shrek the Th...

Typically, spring doesn't give gamers much reason to rejoice. This spring, however, seems to be just a little bit different. Last week we received Spider-Man 3*, and we've been getting new Xbox Live Arcade titles in spades (Catan FTW!). This week, we look inside the Xbox 360 horn of plenty and find...

For a time that typically represents a drought of new games, March really kicking out the Xbox 360 titles this week. All in all, we have 7 (count 'em, 7) new titles to enjoy. Well, technically we have 6 new titles and 1 expansion, but we're not about to complain. Notable among this week's releases a...

Looks like this week is pretty light on Xbox 360 releases (though PS2 owning fanboys can look forward to God of War II). In fact, we don't really have any "new" releases this week. Nope, this week it's just one game, and it's actually a re-release anyway. The only game shipping this week is Call of ...

With the excitement surrounding Guitar Hero II, we'd nearly forgotten that the 360's first iteration of Dance Dance Revolution was shipping this week. 360 owners will finally be able to get on the dance floor with DDR: Universe. We actually have a fairly hefty list of games this week. Behold: North...

Ever since it was first announced that Crackdown would contain a golden ticket to the Halo 3 beta, the jokes have been flying. We admit it, we're as guilty as anyone else, even "designing" our own box art for the game. At this point, most of us have made up our minds about the game. The demo has s...

Boy, if we didn't know that Crackdown was coming next week, we'd be just about ready to give up on our beloved 360. There is only one game releasing for the Xbox 360 this week ... in the entire world. Yup, this week it's Europe's turn to shine. Before our friends across the Atlantic get all giddy an...

Observant fanboys will have noticed that there was no "Shipping this week" posted last week. The reason for that was simple: nothing was released and we were tired of saying that. Lucky for us, there are new releases this week. Yes, that's right, we said releases, as in "more than one." With more t...

Another week gone by, another slim release list for the Xbox 360. Last week we got Lost Planet, and the week before that we got nothing. This week we get one title, NCAA March Madness 07. Sports games aren't for everyone, but it's definitely better than nothing. Also, as the more perceptive readers...

After a one week vacation, the world of Xbox 360 releases has returned, and no triumphant return would be complete without gifts. This week's gift isn't some crappy t-shirt hastily purchased at an airport gift shop either. No, this week is a doozy. It's a general policy that we like to have at leas...

A new year is upon us, and it looks like the game industry is still suffering from a collective hangover, as there are hardly any new games this week, and none at all for our beloved 360. So, instead of a handy bulleted list, we present you with this clip from UHF, Weird Al Yankovic's best (and o...

So, we looked at this week's release list, and we were struck with an eerie feeling that we'd seen it before. We scanned the list over and over again-- it didn't take long, because there was only one game. Had we seen this before? In another life, maybe? No, wait, it's just last week's game again. I...

The last few weeks for 360 releases have been pretty thin. In fact, last week's only release, Star Trek: Legacy was actually pushed back to this week. If Star Trek doesn't do it for you, then you have only one other game to look forward to this week: Rapala Tournament Fishing! No, we're not super ex...

It's another very, very slim week for the Xbox 360. It is yet again so slim that the release is unworthy of a bulleted list. That's right, I said release, as in one. The only game shipping this week is Star Trek: Legacy. I'll go ahead and let it slip that I'm a Trek fan, but it remains to be seen wh...
