    In this commercial, we’re all ‘Michael’

    Ever thought about what it’s like for the characters in your games? What’s it like when you come along and help them save the day?

The end result? Pretty touching, actually. Watch it here: (Someday, we’ll get the same commercial with “Michelle,” right? Right?)

    Get your right to a lawsuit back with Gamers Opt Out

    EA and Sony have done something we’re not really into — taken away our right to a lawsuit. And it’s right there in their EULAs. You know, the documents you don’t actually read that stand between you and playing something. Those wordy things. Did you know you can opt out of those particular clauses by just sending a letter? It’s annoying, I know, but it gets the job done. Too bad there’s no way to do it all online. Or is there? Gamers Opt Out is a new site that will send paper letters to these companies on your behalf. “Gamers Opt Out is a collective of gamers who are sick of absurd EULAs from game companies. These EULAs have clauses preventing class-action lawsuits, though you can opt out of the clauses by sending a letter. We want to make it easier for everyone to opt out because Sony, EA,

    Review: Gears of War 3

    Rating: M (Mature 17+: Blood and Gore, Intense Violence) Genre: Shooter Publisher: Microsoft Game Studio Developer: Epic Games Release Date: September 20, 2011 BUY Without a doubt, Gears of War 3 has been the most hyped Xbox 360-exclusive game of the year. Gears fans of all types–from the hardcore collectors to the mild horde multiplayer enthusiast–have anxiously awaited the day when we would all find out just how the war between the humans and the Locusts finally ends. Epic Games crafted two winners in the past, so the pressure was definitely on, but they had very little to fear, if they feared anything at all. The final chapter of Gears of War holds up to all the hype and has a definite shot at winning several Game of the Year awards across the net. It’s been fifteen months since Delta Squad sacrificed Jacinto to flood the underground Locust tunnels, but the threats of the Locust
