Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition
game: Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition
review | 08/27/05 | Gary Wong
The popular Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition makes its way to the PSP. Sony\'s little handheld has been starved for some high octane games, so DUB Edition has a lot riding on it. Does its engine stall at the starting line or does it finish at the top? Check Gary\'s review for the details.

China Forces World of Warcraft and Lineage II to Restrict Players
news | 08/25/05 | Aaron Stanton
In what we are assuming is a move related to the recent death of a South Korean man who played Starcraft for 50 hours straight in an Internet cafe, China has stated that it will require all MMORPGs sold within its borders to adhere to strict guidelines. The rules include that games must limit how much time a user can play in a given stretch before the user\'s character suffers serious in-game penalties. Games affected include World of Warcraft and Lineage II, among others that are less well-known to American audiences. The companies that operate World of Warcraft and Lineage II in China have both agreed to integrate the system once it is ready in late 2005 or early 2006.

Xbox 360 Bundles Have Gamers Throwing Fits
news | 08/24/05 | Shawn Rider
EB Games is the first major retailer to post their Xbox 360 preorder page and reveal that they will be selling the console in two bundles (corresponding to the two flavors Microsoft is releasing) which increase the price of each system by $300.

twoplayer comic: Not Who You Think
comic | 08/22/05 | Aaron Stanton
The controversies over video games that have been showing up in the news lately are not really new.

In fact, certain personalities have been pushing the evils of video games, regardless of reality, for a while now. Not that we\'re naming names, or anything. Check out this week\'s twoplayer comic: Not Who You Think.

Fantastic Four
game: Fantastic Four
review | 08/20/05 | Eric Bodrero
Generally, \"movie\" video games fare rather poorly, as has been the case for years, but with some recent standouts, especially in the comic-to- movie-to- game adaptation category, there\'s a growing precedent for quality. So does Fantastic Four break the mold, or fall victim to yet another rushjob? Grab your spandex and jump on in for your answer.
