Devil May Cry 4 will be controversial, if only because the main character in the game is not Dante, the erstwhile star of the first three DMC games.

The Madden Cover Curse Strikes Again

ver since 2000’s release of EA Sports’ Madden NFL video games, the star NFL player on the cover has had something go wrong with them and their team that season. This year is no different. Seattle Seahawks’ star running back and 2007 Madden coverboy Shaun Alexander has broken a bone in his foot. He’ll be out at least two weeks, probably longer.

Okami's Long Awaited Release

One of the best games of the year, being released this week- except that you probably haven't heard about it.

Editorial: Last Rites For The N-Gage

I want to take a minute to talk about the demise, ongoing demise really, of the Nokia N-Gage. Yes, I’m talking about that handheld video game system and cell phone conglomeration.
