Ripping Friends Review
game: Ripping Friends
review | 12/22/02 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
John K\'s latest abomination is Ripping Friends, showing on Cartoon Network\'s Adult Swim. It\'s not a good cartoon: The titular friends are just grotesque Tick wannabes and it all feels like the boring parts of Ren and Stimpy rehashed. But that\'s a lot better than the game... Click here.

game: Denki Blocks
review | 12/20/02 | Shawn Rider
Puzzle games are the most dangerous: A good one can keep you glued to your Game Boy for days on end, inciting ridicule from friends and relatives until they try it and get addicted, too. Denki Blocks is a great example of a great puzzle game, and fans of the genre need to get it. Click here.

Xbox LIVE Goes Live
Articles Archive | 11/22/02 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
The time has come, online console gamers, to prove your mettle not only to the friends on your block, but also to the whole world. Are you ready? Well, we're not. In our first week of Xbox LIVE, we've taken some horrible beatings, but we've also learned that it isn't all about scores and stats “ it's about having a great time playing great games, and it's about ganging up on the guy using the cartoon voice mask.

Butt-Ugly Martians B.K.M. Battles Review
game: Butt-Ugly Martians B.K.M. Battles
review | 11/17/02 | Jason Frank
The B.K.M. stands for \"Butt-Kicking Mode\" and anybody already into Butt-Ugly Martians will probably appreciate the reference more than we do. Butt-Ugly Martians B.K.M. Battles for the GBA is not a bad game; it just doesn\'t offer us anything new. Derivative, but solid, gameplay abounds.

Xtreme Air Racing Review
game: Xtreme Air Racing
review | 10/20/02 | Eric Qualls
Sure, racing souped-up airplanes at really low altitudes through Nevada canyons sounds extreme, but Xtreme Air Racing manages to tone down the heart-pumping thrills and focus on the fairly cerebral simulation. It\'s kind of like reading a Sex Ed textbook unless you\'re really into aircraft simulations. Click here.

What's in a Game? A Linguistic History of
Articles Archive | 10/09/02 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
Here at Gamesfirst! we like to talk about games--interactive art, we'll tell you, and the future of art and storytelling”a force more powerful and more frightening than its parent, the movie, or its grandparent, the stage”both terrifying in their own way, in their own time. But did you ever wonder where the word "videogame"came from? "Video" meets "game"--it sounds like a pretty straightforward etymology to get to the word that brings us all so much joy, but what we have here is a strange union between two ancient words who's roots stretch across recorded time”and further, in fact, into the dark night of prerecorded time.

Free Expression Policy Project
Articles Archive | 09/27/02 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
Last Spring US District Court Judge Stephen N. Limbaugh Sr. determined that videogames do not qualify as "speech" and are therefore not protected under the First Amendment. The case was brought before Judge Limbaugh by the Interactive Digital Software Association (IDSA) and St. Louis videogame retailers and arcade owners who were upset about an ordinance passed by the St. Louis City Council regulating violent and mature videogames. In the court's ruling, Judge Limbaugh wrote that there is "no conveyance of ideas, expressions, or anything else that could possibly amount to speech. The court finds that video games have more in common with board games and sports than they do with motion pictures."
