    Zachary Levi would “die on the spot” if a Chuck Video game was made

    The star of Chuck stated in an interview that he would “die on the spot because that would be incredible” if a Chuck video game was ever created. Zachary Levi stars in Chuck which has heavy game influences and he is a fan of video games himself. In an interview discussing his directorial debut in a 60 second film series for Liberty Mutual, he stated that the coolest thing he’s seen in his life were people dressing up as Chuck for Halloween. Which was brought up during the conversation as a popular costume choice. Another geeky moment for Zachary Levi was seeing the Chuck comic book. Zachary described himself as “awestruck” when they came out. We’ll be posting the full interview and more information on the short film on GamingAngels.com tomorrow! Follow

    Guest Article: All My Boyfriends – The Best Video Game Relationships

    I have a problem. It’s not a particularly serious one, except it does kind of prevent me from dating people. You see, I play lots of RPGs. And RPGs have these awesome characters with well-developed personalities and histories, and they tend to be snarky and flirty, and before long it’s over for me, and I’ve fallen in love with yet another fictional character. Go ahead and mock me, but I enjoy swooning over my sweet fictional boys. Dating is complicated. Being in love with fictional characters is easy (if really pathetic, I know). Obviously I prefer some of the romance subplots in games over others for various reasons, and I find the BioWare romances to be the best. So I’ve decided to go through the romance-able characters in my favorite BioWare games (plus Obsidian Entertainment’s KotOR2, which has some of the awesomeness of BioWare’s KotOR1) to rank the pros and

    Review: Ghostbusters

    Developer: Atari ESRB: T (for Teen) Systems: Windows, PS3, Xbox 360 Genre: Action Game Release Date: June 16th, 2009 BUY Yeah, you should give these guys a call. Getting this game into my hands has been an emotional ordeal. When it was announced that the third installment of the Ghostbusters series would be in videogame form, I’m sure gamers everywhere were over the moon. Not only that, but nearly everyone from the movies would be on board as well (though as long as all four Ghostbusters were original, the ancillary characters didn’t matter). Anyone who ever had an Egon action figure, or drank only Slimer’s Ecoplasm Hi-C as a kid knew that excitement. Fortunately, Activision was publishing the game, and they had the brilliant idea to NOT publish it (as well as Brutal Legend), so they could focus more time and money on guaranteed money-makers, like Spyro. Geniuses. Getting the
