mutant-football-league-01

Today marked the launch of the "Mutant Football League" Kickstarter, a spiritual successor to EA's 16-bit classic "Mutant League Football" from series creator Michael Mendheim. The Kickstarter campaign, which is seeking $750,000 to complete the game for iOS and Android devices--with stretch goals potentially bringing it to other platforms--resurrects a property that's been out of the public eye for some time now, albeit with a very vocal following.

But why go it alone without EA? And isn't Mendheim courting conflict with the publisher by using a concept (and name) so similar to the original?

grudgematch

As video games continue to become an ever-present part of our everyday lives, it makes sense for them to become increasingly visible in movies. Not necessarily as the focus, but just as plot points.

As is the case with "Grudge Match," starring Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro.

burnout

The day that many longtime fans of Criterion Games, best known for the Burnout series, and who helped to salvage the mess that was the Need For Speed franchise, has finally arrived. And the sad thing is, many saw it coming, all the way back in 2004, when EA first acquired the studio.

Joystiq, along with several other outlets, have reported the recent restructuring of the UK based developer. What used to be a studio that had around 80 individuals now has only 16, according to Criterion creative director Alex Ward on Twitter.

Yusuke Kozaki might not have been the guest of honor at the recent U.S. debut of the French-run Japan Expo (it was 'Evangelion' character designer Yoshiyuki Sadamoto), but the video game artist certainly got his fair share of attention. With last spring's "Fire Emblem: Awakening" still fresh in the gamers' 3DS', Kozaki's character designing style has become all the more recognizable. We caught up with him at Japan Expo to talk about his background, his experiences as a character designer for games, and his music tastes.

Hey! Are you one of the hundreds of thousands of white-knuckled GTA fans biting their nails in anticipation for tomorrow's launch of Rockstar's next big thing in their flagship Grand Theft Auto series? Yes? Then you're probably already dead set on a purchase and probably don't need any more convincing. It's grand time full of debauchery, chaotic chases, and maniacal mayhem and is definitely well worth the inevitable "sick day" you'll call in to get out of work for a full day of GTA this Tuesday. Likewise, gamers that have never loved these titles can rest assured that the fifth numbered entry is more of the same - albeit prettier and a bit more refined.

Once again returning to the fake-Californian city of Los Santos, gently nestled between the immense Pacific Ocean and imposing Rockies, is a city littered with opportunity - especially for those willing to grab it by any means necessary. The bright lights and sandy beaches invite all manner of people from yuppies, hippies, criminals, wanna-be starlets, and sociopaths alike. It's never a dull moment in LS and its surrounding county is ripe for the taking for the fiduciary felonious fellow.

For those others who are wavering between play or don't or who may never have played a GTA before read on for my full review of "Grand Theft Auto V."

Compared to the cardio and fitness focus of last year's 'Zumba Fitness Core', the Zumba series' 2013 offering, 'Zumba Fitness World Party' feels like the franchise's opportunity to stretch its legs beyond the familiar core workouts and fitness. While 'Fitness Core' was user friendly, 'Zumba Fitness World Party' is notably more approachable, putting the franchise's world music appeal at the forefront.

For all you thirty year olds out there: don't you miss the good old days of video game advertisements? Back when ads were all goofy and lighthearted, and not all dark and dreary?

Sure some of the potty jokes or examples of "extreme" behavior were embarrassingly cheesy and clearly desperate, even back when you were a teen. But many of us would gladly have some of that nowadays, instead of the dripping with pathos reminders of how grim life can be that seems to embody every contemporary game ad.
