Eve Online Review
game: Eve Online
review | 07/20/03 | Shawn Rider
Simon and Schuster\'s epic space simulator is a phenomenal achievement. Eve Online provides such a large scope of possibility that this is one MMORPG that might just come too close to recreating a living world. We love those immersive environments, but what happens when immersivity is paired with sometimes very tedious realism?

Capcom vs. SNK 2 EO Review (Xbox)
game: Capcom vs. SNK 2 EO
review | 04/02/03 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
Xbox fans arguably get the best version of Capcom vs. SNK 2 EO. Not only does the old-school Xbox controller XXL sport the best button setup for fighting games of all the default system controllers, but this version of the game supports online multiplayer. Thing you can hang with the elite Japanese fighters? We doubt it. Click here for more.

Capcom vs. SNK 2 EO Review
game: Capcom vs. SNK 2 EO
review | 11/28/02 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
It may sound transgressive and spooky right about now to play a game called Sniper: Path of Vengeance, but let us assure you that this game will not train up the next crop of rampaging lunatics, mainly because it is so bad. Consider this review fair warning: If you grab this bad boy out of the bargain bin, then we can no longer help you.

INTERVIEW - Dana Bruno of BrunoReport.net
Articles Archive | 11/12/02 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
Dana Bruno runs the one-woman-show, The Bruno Report (www.brunoreport.net), which has been getting more than a little notice recently due to her high profile involvement in the Search 4 E. Search 4 E (www.search4e.org) is a project underway from True Crime Press to utilize Websurfing civillians to help solve the mystery of what happened to the even more mysterious "E" (Ed Sobian, Eric Sobel, or Emil Sobiak, take your pick). Currently there is reluctance in the law enforcement community to take up the missing persons case, largely due to the fact that it is hard to determine whether E was kidnapped or ran away, so in a move spearheaded by James Pitt (the well-known author) and True Crime Press, private investigators have been brought in. The allure of large amounts of money and valuable items found by professional and amateur investigators researching the case has helped generate serious interest.

Acclaim Responds to Criticism of BMX XXX
game: BMX XXX
news | 10/17/02 | Shawn Rider
Acclaim has responded to the recent controversy surrounding the release of BMX XXX, their latest extreme sports game targeted to a mature audience. The company makes some good points about unfairly characterizing videogames as exclusively kids\' stuff. Also noteworthy in their statement is the lack of any mention of toning down the PS2 version, as was previously rumored. Click here.

GORE Review (PC)
game: GORE
review | 09/10/02 | Aaron Stanton
Dreamcatcher Interactive brings us a first person shooter that doesn\'t do a lot of new things, but should liven up your next LAN bash a bit. GORE provides the basic FPS experience we\'ve come to know and love -- lots of mindless violence and some nice graphics. All of this at a bargain price, too. Not bad. Click here.

Halo 2 Preview
game: Halo 2
preview | 08/14/02 | Shawn Rider
Microsoft and Bungie are at it again, and they\'ve finally copped to a sequel of one of the biggest games of last year. HALO 2 promises online multiplayer support, a focus on squad-based tactics, a larger arsenal of weapons, and a whole lot more of what we loved in the first place. Get the preview here.

Brittney's Dance Beat Review (PS2)
game: Brittney's Dance Beat
review | 07/13/02 | Monica Hafer
She\'s not yet a woman and not just a girl anymore -- now she\'s a digital character on your PS2 (and we can only hope THQ will have a sense of humor and make her a playable character in one of the WWE titles). Brittney\'s Dance Beat is awesome if you are in the right target audience, and you already know if you are. If you dig dance games, or really love dancing gams, click here.

Big Bass Fishing Review
game: Big Bass Fishing
review | 06/28/02 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
How do you make a bargain priced fishing game for PSone stand out above the rest? If you are Big Bass Fishing you add a sexy angler into the mix. Her saucy allusions and provocative double entendres are fun for a bit, but then you\'re left playing the game, and it just falls short. Click here to read all about it.

Dark Planet: Battle for Natrolis Review
game: Dark Planet: Battle for Natrolis
review | 06/28/02 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
It\'s one of the oldest stories we know: Multiple groups of settlers fight amongst themselves to control a newly discovered world, empty except for the natives. Nope, this isn\'t a pre-July 4 history lesson, it\'s the plot of Dark Planet: Battle for Natrolis. This bargain-priced strategy game brings some interesting features to the table, but overall it ends up falling a bit flat. Click here for more.

Star Wars Bounty Hunter Preview
game: Star Wars Bounty Hunter
preview | 06/19/02 | Jeremy Kauffman
LucasArts brings us another really cool-looking Star Wars game. Star Wars Bounty Hunter allows you to assume the role of Jango Fett. Promising to flesh out the backstory of this mysterious figure (whose cool is trumped only by his son, Boba). Jetpacks, laser pistols, large environments and plenty of bounties to collect make this game a Star Wars fan\'s dream. Click here.

Splinter Cell Preview (Xbox, all)
game: Splinter Cell
preview | 05/29/02 | Jeremy Kauffman
Ubi Soft has a Snake-killer on their hands. Picture this: Millions and millions of gamers arguing for years and years about whether MGS or Splinter Cell is the superior third person stealth action title. That\'s what the future looks like. We\'re all fans of MGS, but this Splinter Cell could make us devotees. Get the whole story here.

WildTangent: Divergent Business Model for Online Gaming and Distribution
Articles Archive | 05/28/02 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
Although they sounded intriguing, it wasn't the martinis and massages that lured me into the WildTangent room at E3. As a member of the media, the invites for drinks were as free flowing as T-shirts and temporary tattoos for the normal E3 attendee. Yet, as I was winding my way through the mayhem that is E3, I was surprised to see a rather large woman in a purple shirt handing out gamedisks. With quasi-anorexic booth babes the norm in this venue, I was surprised to note that all of the WildTangent women (as that's who they were) were larger-than-life and exceptionally friendly. I wondered, "Who would be so bold as to flaut tradition and hire large, fully clothed women to entice players to check out a booth?" The answer turned out to be a company that has used just such divergent thinking in all areas of their marketing: WildTangent.

EDITORIAL - The Unbearable Ugliness of Wargames
Articles Archive | 01/01/00 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
Lately I've been spending a lot of time with my copy of Norm Koger's The Operational Art of War, and I have a lot of nice things to say about it. It's deep, it's fun, it's got a great interface”well, OK, it's just a great game. In any case, I was happily playing along in the spiffy 2D mode, feeling nice and comfortable with the familiar board wargame look of the game, when my son looked over my shoulder and suggested we try the 3D view of the game, "you know, the one where the tanks look like tanks instead of chits of cardboard." Figuring it wouldn't hurt to humor him, I switched over to 3D, and”Great Patton's Ghost!--we were confronted with a sight to freeze one's very soul”that of the ugliness that lies at the heart of wargaming. We witnessed wraith-like infantry, indistinct vehicles, Germans wearing green uniforms, Allies grey. It was like World War II on food poisoning.
