Ah yes, I love shooting many robots so much I just had to download the Android version of Shoot Many Robots. No, it's not just because I'm the only one in B3 that owns an Android phone; it's because this game is really that fun!

King Baby Duck and Blueonic chat with two game developers at PAX East that were showing off their goods: one favorite of theirs and a newbie that's hoping to make waves with a new horror title.

As a game reviewer I need all the concentration I can get when playing through any title. It's not because I don't want to bothered (okay, maybe a little bit), but rather it's due to the fact that I need to be able to point out every single pixel, sound, action, and just about everything else that is featured in a video game. I won't lie when I say it's hard to do this when even the smallest sound outside of your gaming realm can sometimes distract you. Fortunately I've found a great solution to this little gaming issue in the form of Plantronics' GameCom Commander, the official headset of the Electronic Sports World Cup.

Recently I got to do a video interview with the Senior Technical Marketing Analyst of NVIDIA Andrew Coonrad. He showed me their upcoming controller, Project SHIELD,  that features a built-on screen, giving you the capabilities of walking away from the computer and enjoying the game in another part of your house without dragging a wire around. Using the video graphics card of NVIDIA this new controller will get those very sweet graphics right in the palms of your hands.

King Baby Duck sits down with one of the most recognizable names in the nerdcore industry in a new edition of One-On-One!

Saints Row The Third was one of the craziest sandbox games ever concocted, so how would Volition top what they managed to pull off last time for their fourth go-around in Saints Row? Oh where to begin?

This weekend at PAX East we stumbled upon the Stinky Gaming Footboard. This thing is a little bit out of the ordinary, but it's awesome to get a chance to play with. In laymen's terms: it doesn't play like its namesake!

It's that time of year again: video gaming at its most extreme in the Boston area!

Mamoru Hosoda is like no other animation director. From his days doing Digimon and One Piece movies to making a name for himself with such critically-acclaimed films The Girl Who Leapt Through Time and Summer Wars, Hosoda has showcased a sort of unique talent regarding how a story is told and how it looks. Because of his talents he has been called "the next Miyazaki" by many critics in Japan and the rest of the world.

With his latest film Wolf Children, Hosoda doesn't just reach the top of the anime directorial mountain; he claims the throne that rests on its peak.
