    Best Weapons in Videogames

    Some potentially noteworthy mentions that would've made it on my list. Dante has a guitar called Nevan that summons bats and lightning allowing him to shred enemies as he shreds riffs. Painkiller had a gun that shot shurikens and lightning. I think everyone at Escapist is familiar with...

    309: Mega Man X Marks the Spot

    Personally, the Zero series was the better of the two. Capcom did some wonky things with the X series (like X6) and the level design could be really cheap.

    302: Who Cares About Mario?

    Nintendo broke me with the DS. I, at the age of 19, switched to an iPod touch and have since sold my D.S They are no longer about games. It's a toy, a gimmick, and will be replaced in two years by a Lite version. The iPod has the Final Fantasy, it has the Street Fighter, It has what you want...

    Doomsday Arcade: Episode 25: Series Finale

    Pulp Fiction reference, check. grenade finale, check. Not saying who the ultimate villain was or even caring to know was so in character for Shanks and Lund that it was hilarious. I want to own this series. . . . a lot. Quick edit. Was that music video a parody of Prince or am I just...

    Doomsday Arcade: Episode 24

    Also, Anyone else been suspecting that Bruce might be from a video game? I've kind of thought it all along and it's very possible considering Laser Cat is a video game character that LEADS (correction: led) the resistance. I searched around a pinch on the interwebs, but couldn't really get past...

    There Will Be Brawl: Episode Nine

    This series is so good! Even if it had nothing to do with the Nintendo characters I would watch it, but the way it plays with how we see the different character's personas is amazing. I can't wait to see the conclusion!

    The Escapist Presents: Audience Questions for Yahtzee

    I'm surprised he answered that last question given how much shit he will inevitably catch from the console wars. Also sucks to hear about the Game Damage thing. I am still really looking forward to that cause I loved the pilot. Especially Yahtzee's bit about adventure games.

    Sony: PSP Go Costs More Because of a "Premium"

    It's up to you. I was just validating the price. Given what it is I don't think it's that expensive.

    Sony: PSP Go Costs More Because of a "Premium"

    They're really not asking for that much more than the DSi considering they're offering a competent internet browser, bluetooth tethering, the ability to play movies, music,photos, and games. I'm not trying to be the PSFanboy on this, but I've gotten bored with my DSi and so I've spent some time...

    Sony: PSP Go Costs More Because of a "Premium"

    To add to Commander Breetai's point though, they also added bluetooth and a built in microphone. Not to mention the new design cost some R&D.

    Science Says Gamers are Fat, Depressed Losers

    What kills me most is when I hear this argument from someone that sits and watches TV for up to 6 hours a day. At least with video games they're making you think. As far as the fat thing goes, I'm 19, 5' 11" and 130LB. If your kid is sitting in front of the TV playing video games all day then...
