The Xbox Live version of The Behemoths' 4-player co-op brawler Castle Crashers will be 3-years on the 27th of this month, but it's still highly popular and one of the most-played games in our household.

Nintendo recently announced they are reducing the price of the Nintendo 3DS from $249.99 to id="mce_marker"69.99, and all I can think about is how much I want one.

There was a lot of excitement about Splash Damage’s Brink going back several years. The game looked gorgeous, the fluid, free-running, parkor style of action looked interesting, and it just exuded a different style of first-person shooter that many people thought would be interesting.
Brink saw its release back in early May, and immediately everybody wrote it off. The game received pretty average review scores. Currently the game is, amongst the different platforms, hovering at about a 70%.
I acquired the game through a trade on Goozex a couple of weeks back, and I love it! I can see some of its flaws, but the graphics, especially the details on the character design screen are absolutely beautiful. It probably features some of the best character design details on a first person shooter.

I feel sorry for Duke Nukem Forever. First off, the game has gone through more than a decade of development hell. Then in May of 2009, the developer 3D Realms was closed halting development. Gearbox Studios acquires the rights to the game, promises to faithfully finish it, and it finally sees the light of day on June 14, 2011, and immediately receives heaps of negative and mediocre review scores.

The following editorial is in response to yesterday's article, Remembering My Good Friend: The Controller.
