StarCraft 2

A few months back, one of our MTV News producers took a stab at recreating the trailer for "Prince of Persia" in LEGO form. It was an impressive feat, but I think it might be matched by the work put in to recreating "StarCraft 2" with LEGOs. You can watch the incredible video below, which captures everything from base-building to garrisoning units to harvesting minerals. Hell, they even manage to recreate the fog of war.

I am beginning to look ahead to the week I'm taking off before starting at my next job. Here's my ambitious gaming playlist for that week: Read More...

Unless updating your e-mail contacts book in "Outlook" is some sort of video game, I didn't play anything last night. I was at the office until 11pm pulling contact info for people from thousands of e-mails in my inbox. Maybe Microsoft's product would be even more attractive to companies and workers if it awarded points to users who did productive things, like regularly cleaning up their inbox. Maybe?

Yesterday, I became news. How odd. What I didn't get to do at all was play games, not even the newly-delivered "Excitebots." Nor did I play "Cubello" (described in yesterday's Lunchtime Video), which I'm fiending to get back to. Thanks for the tip on that one, Matt Hawkins.

OK. This was weird. I barely played any games this weekend other than a few with Mr. N'Gai Croal. Read More...

There's a cooking game I like a lot more than "Cooking Mama," but which still might have a big problem. Read More...

I spent four hours playing the new "Bionic Commando" last night, but more on that in a preview post a little later today. Right now, just about all I can think about is the pain in my neck that makes it painful to turn my head and kept me from the gym this morning. Should we blame "Bionic Commando" or some mysterious sleep malfunction? Do games ever cause people to wake up with neck pains the next day? No, right?

After finishing "50 Cent: Blood on the Sand" last night (a topic for another post), I got back to Ubisoft's voice-controlled military strategy game "EndWar." I enjoyed the game's tutorial but struggled in the first couple of campaign missions. So, I decided, this game will be like "Street Fighter IV": a game I think is probably good but which I will shelve until some possible time in the future when I can get good at it. Does anyone else shelve or return games that are beyond their current skills?

Those of you who have my Gamertag did indeed see me playing Sega's maligned "Golden Axe" sequel, because I'll give anything a fair try. Read More...
