game: Tony hawk's Downhill Jam
review | 12/23/06 | Matt James
Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam is sort of like a THPS lite, but that doesn't make it a game you should avoid. Building on the old-school THPS timed gameplay style, Downhill Jam offers up some quality gameplay on the Nintendo DS. If you're looking for something a little less intense than THUG or Project 8 for your daily commute or li'l skater-in-training, the you could do worse than grabbing Downhill Jam. Check out Matt's review for the details.

Zap Dramatic makes a unique series of games built around negotiating. In games such as "The Raise" and "The Mediator," players must navigate through a complex social web, made more realistic by a touch of unpredictability and predictable limitations. Dialogue-oriented games are occasionally popular (Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney, for example), but often suffer from the good/bad, light side/dark side, oversimplification of games like Fable or Knights of the Old Republic. Laurie takes a look at some of the Zap Dramatic offerings in this group review.

It's about damn time the video game industry got a respectable awards ceremony (that's a big f#$%-you to Spike TV, by the way). BAFTA actually has given awards to games that deserve them. To all the development companies out there, who put so much hard work into their games, there's finally a way to give to them the honor and respect they deserve. This is truly a first step to viewing video games as an art form. This year, LocoRoco and Tom Clany's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter get their due, as do Lego Star Wars II: the Original Trilogy, Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training: How Old is Your Brain?, and The Movies, among others.
game: Dead Rising
review | 09/14/06 | Chris Martin
Capcom's Dead Rising has been a phenomenon: Muthafuckin' zombies in a muthafuckin' mall, to borrow a phrase. It's a great B-Movie of a game, enjoyable and painful all at once. Yet for all of its blemishes, Dead Rising is worth every eye-straining moment of frustratingly awesome zombie whacking. It's not for the faint of heart, in more ways than one. Check out Chris Martin's review to find out why Dead Rising is the best bad game you'll play this year.

It's common for companies to sell services that a customer could easily do themselves with a little training; it's often more convenient to pay someone to do the job than to take the time to learn. But now, Circuit City is offering to install software on your Xbox 360 that is basically shipped preinstalled from the manufacturer. For a fee of $28.99, Circuit City will install software that lets you play original Xbox titles on your Xbox 360. Their advertising doesn't mention that many Xbox games can be played without their "software" installation, or that what they're really offering to do is to install a free update from Microsoft. The problem isn't the service, it's the misleading style of the service, and we sincerely hope the practice changes very soon.
game: PQ: Practical Intelligence Quotient
review | 03/01/06 | Shawn Rider
An early release in the coming tide of brain training titles due to hit the US in the next year, PQ: Practical Intelligence Quotient is a game that doubles as an intelligence test. Developed in collaboration with a real-life Professor of Psychology from Kyoto University, PQ ranks your smarts based on the "modular theory of intelligence." Is it as quirky and nerdy as it sounds? Or is it true that taking a test can never be a good time? Check the full review here.
game: Worldwide Soccer Manager 2006 (Football Manager 2006)
review | 02/03/06 | Chris Galbraith
Worldwide Soccer Manager 2006 (or "Football" Manager as it's known across the pond) claims to be the most popular game in Europe. It features no 3D graphics, no compelling tackle or pass system, and no announcers providing play-by-play color commentary. Worldwide Soccer Manager focuses on the detailed strategy of running a soccer team: From finances and training schedules to promotions and contract negotiations, you'll assume the role of coach and micromanage every little detail about your club. It's not for everyone, but it's well-loved in certain circles. So we got our resident Euro-living American soccer nut, Chris Galbraith, to bring us back this review. Check it out.

game: Full Spectrum Warrior
review | 11/26/04 | Blaine Krumpe
There's nothing quite like a little realism in a tactical game. Originally developed as a training tool for the U.S. Military, Full Spectrum Warrior tries to separate itself from other strategy games by offering action designed to be like the real thing. Can you keep your soldiers alive under hostile fire? FSW let's you find out.
