How to Be a Console DJ: Reviewing beatmania
game: beatmania
review | 04/23/06 | Amanda Bateman
Always wanted to be a DJ but didn\'t know quite where to start? We can\'t guarantee that beatmania will provide you with the skills needed to become an expert on the turntables, but it is a heck of a lot of fun. And at $59 for both the game and the super-sweet turntable controller, this is another Konami game that is easy to get your friends to try. Amanda breaks it down for you in her review.

The Revolution's Least Qualified Critic
game: Nintendo Revolution
editorial | 04/21/06 | Aaron Stanton
When Keita Takahashi, creator of Katamari Damacy, mentioned his dislike of Nintendo\'s controller emphasis in an interview with Gamesutra.com, it raised the eyebrow of at least one of our editors. Aaron Stanton takes a moment to reflect on the irony inherent in the maker of Katamari - a brilliant game with a terrible control scheme - criticizing Nintendo for paying too much attention to how a game should be interacted with. Takahashi has become known for holding himself separate from the rest of the video game industry, as well as being able to think outside the box, but there are some parts of Katamari that could have benefited from a little influence from the mainstream.

game: 360 Controller L
news | 04/01/06 | Shawn Rider
Microsoft has announced a brand new first-party controller for the Xbox 360, officially blowing the minds of gamers around the world. Is it a gyroscopic touch pad? Nope.

Get all the details on the 360 Controller L right here.

Hoyle Gaming in Your Hand Lacks Key Ingredient: Fun
game: Hoyle Family TV Gaming System
review | 02/21/06 | Tristan Mayshark
TechnoSource has packaged 11 Hoyle games onto a controller that connects to your TV using RCA cables. Including classics like Mahjong, Backgammon, and Old Maid, this might sound like the ultimate Hoyle Family TV Gaming System. But with strictly single-player action, jank graphics, and terrible AI, this is probably a \"family\" activity best left alone. Get the full story in Tristan\'s review right here.

Sonic Blast (phemy)
game: Sonic Blast
review | 02/19/06 | Tristan Mayshark
Sonic the Hedgehog and Knuckles have come to us in the form of a brightly colored controller that connects to your TV and offers 15 different kinds of pain and suffering to users. Sonic Blast is a far cry from the quality and breadth we\'ve come to expect in our plug-and-play TV games. For now, stick with the products that look like a real Genesis controller, and limit your experience with Sonic Blast to reading our review.

feature | 01/21/06 | Matt James
Matt\'s back with the first of the 2006 Mailbags, full of international flavor.

news | 01/19/06 | Shawn Rider
EA has announced that they will bring their fantasy strategy title, The Battle for Middle Earth 2 to Xbox 360. The Battle for Middle Earth 2 comes out for PC in February, building on the success of the original. The Xbox 360 version will see a revamp to suit the console controller and will feature Xbox Live multiplayer, bringing serious strategy gaming to the home console for the first time. (No, we\'re not going to count Starcraft for N64 as a legitimate effort.)

GelTabz Review
game: GelTabz
review | 01/02/06 | Shawn Rider
GelTabz are an unlikely must-have enhancement. They are so incredibly simple they\'ll have you wondering why more game controllers don\'t make use of their innovative design. But they are so effective that once you give them a shot, you won\'t want to play without them. As natural a fit as a baseball glove and a baseball bat, GelTabz are definitely worth a closer look.

The Student Who Beat the Revolution
game: Addi's Pebble
feature | 12/29/05 | Aaron Stanton
The Asia Game Show & DEE Asia 2005 had some interesting items on display, but the only gem was a student design project tucked in the back corner. Pebble, designed by Addi Lam, uses a controller that\'s very similar to the Revolution. Only it was built months before Nintendo announced anything about the Revolution\'s nifty control approach. This project was developed entirely independent of Nintendo. For a brief moment at the AGSDEE Asia, lucky visitors had a chance to see what Nintendo\'s been talking about.

NBA Live 06 Review
game: NBA Live 06
review | 12/09/05 | Chris Martin
Are graphics all they\'re cracked up to be? Has the NBA Live franchise regained its prestige? And what happened to franchise mode? There are two basketball titles to make it to the Xbox 360 launch: NBA 2K6 and NBA Live 06. One is good, the other, not so good. Woe is you that picks up the wrong title, because while one is a blast, the other will have you throwing your controller in frustration. Is NBA 2K6 the good one, or the bad one? Read on to find out if EA Canada\'s port of Live 06 is worth your money.

Miyamoto Hiding More Revolution Secrets?
game: Revolution
news | 12/06/05 | George Holomshek
At a recent appearance in front of Japan\'s Digital Interactive Entertainment Conference, famed Nintendo game designer, Shigeru Miyamoto, stunned the audience with a single comment about the upcoming Nintendo Revolution: \"There\'s another secret.\" Miyamoto offered no further explanation, but the last secret Nintendo had kept from us was the Revolution\'s controller, and that was undoubtedly huge news. So what else could Nintendo have up their sleeve? George gathers the scant details and tries to put together some theories right here.

Revolution Coming in May? With a New Name?
game: Nintendo Revolution
news | 11/28/05 | Shawn Rider
The Revolution is shaping up to be a phenomenal console, what with built-in emulation for every previous Nintendo console, downloadable retro games, online gaming, and a unique controller that has spawned huge debates about the future of gaming. Kotaku has gotten the early word on Nintendo\'s E3 Press Conference, which will be held May 9, 2006. The letter from Nintendo refers to \"our next home console, code-named Revolution,\" which has us wondering if we won\'t hear about the long-rumored console name-change. In addition, Kotaku points us to an article on Revolution Report about a patent application that defines an interface not unlike the Xbox Dashboard. Click on over and get the advanced word. We\'ll follow all of these assertions as details unfold.

The Meta-Gaming Experience of Xbox 360
game: Xbox 360
feature | 11/24/05 | Shawn Rider
The Xbox 360 brings a lot to the table: Fancy new graphics. Fancy new games. Fancy new controller. But we already had pretty nice graphics. And we\'ve always had fun games. Controllers come and go, plus we can usually find third-party controllers that will work, too. So what\'s next-gen about the Xbox 360? It\'s the meta-gaming experience. It\'s not that the 360 really changes the game (although it does that, too). What\'s really cool about the 360 is that it changes how we PLAY the game. And that\'s an exciting thing.
