Student Declared Witch and Burned for Making In-Game Map of High School.
editorial | 05/02/07 | Aaron Stanton
When a student at Clements High School in Texas made a video game mod based on the layout of his local high school, he probably didn\'t expect the reaction it eventually received. Two months after the map was created, the Virginia Tech shootings happened, and authorities took the students map as a threat. Not only was he removed from the campus grounds and sent to an alternative school, he\'s been bared from participating in graduation. Yet no one seems to believe that he actually represented a threat to the community - in that no one seems convinced he was on the verge of picking up a gun and shooting someone. The only problem is that he did something that - some people, at least - connect to events like Virginia Tech. In other words, it didn\'t matter that he wasn\'t really a witch, merely that he looked enough like one to be punished.

news | 11/11/05 | Shawn Rider

Playing on the satellite map of the world is pretty fun, and Risk is, well, a classic. Check it out.

Timesplitters Future Perfect has the best Xbox Live feature of any game on the market, and it has nothing to do with how well the voice chat works or whether or not you can play capture the castle.

Rainbow Six 3: Black Arrow
game: Rainbow Six 3: Black Arrow
review | 09/17/04 | Aaron Stanton
There are few publishers that can claim to equal Ubisoft in terms of supporting their Xbox games on LIVE. Between downloadable content and semi-sequel game releases for the fans that can't get enough, Ubisoft has provided a string of extra content for pretty much every Clancy game they've released. Now, there's Black Arrow, basically the old Rainbow Six 3 with new maps, split screen, and some tweaked gameplay. But is it good? Not as good as you would hope. Read about it here.
