Article Star Wars Casting Call Descriptions Are Getting Lazy

By Andrew Bridgman / November 12, 2013

An open casting call was just put up for a new Disney film - and insiders have already confirmed that the vague post is for the new Star Wars film, tentatively known only as Episode VII. Along with it are vague character descriptions with obviously fake names to help hide what characters will be appearing in the heavily-anticipated film. However, a few of these descriptions seem to be doing a pretty bad job of hiding who exactly they're supposed to be.

Article Valve's Big Announcement Predictions

By Andrew Bridgman / September 24, 2013

Last week, Valve previewed three major announcements they would be making throughout the course of this week: one on Monday, one on Wednesday, and one on Friday. There has been much speculation about what these announcements would be, although Valve has dropped considerable hints towards what they might be. Yesterday, it was announced that they would be releasing their own operating system, known as SteamOS. Our analysts have looked at the clues and rumors that are swirling around the net to give you this in-depth analysis of this announcement, as well as what to expect on Wednesday and Friday.

 

Monday

Valves Big Announcement Predictions

Confirmed: SteamOS

Analysis: This Linux-based operating system (which will be available at no cost) will allow Steam-users to experience their gaming library on their living room TV screen in an easy, convenient manner. This appears to be laying the groundwork for something much bigger. Which brings us to...

 

Wednesday

Valves Big Announcement Predictions

Prediction: SteamBOX

Analysis: Finally, a dedicated piece of Valve hardware that can compete with next-gen consoles, but with the added edge of running Steam. We know that Valve has long wanted to produce their own piece of hardware, and Gabe Newell has even teased the idea for months. The public knowledge that Valve hired a hardware engineer a few months ago all but confirms their clear interest in making this product a reality.

A level-headed, business-savvy company like Valve understands that now is an ideal time to jump into this market. They don't make foolhardy decisions - the company is run by some of the shrewdest minds in gaming. That being said, there is still one more announcement left. What could possibly top this? Well...

 

Friday

Valves Big Announcement Predictions

Prediction: PORTAL GUNS ARE REAL AND HALF-LIFE 3 IS FREE AND ORIGIN IS SHUTTING DOWN AND EVERY DAY IS A STEAM SALE FROM NOW ON!!

Analysis: It's gotta either be this or a new kind of Team Fortress 2 hat.

FALLOUT 4 REVEALED

 

Beginning a few weeks ago, Fallout fans worldwide have been talking about a mysterious site named "The Survivor 2299." While the site did not directly state that it was connected to Bethesda Softworks (the publisher behind Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas), the imagery used and hints within the source code clearly indicated that it was some sort of viral marketing for a new entry in the Fallout series. And though Bethesda remained tight-lipped throughout, there were countdowns that were seemingly leading to a major announcement. And on December 6th, that announcement came...

Article The 10 Greatest Star Wars Games of All-Time

  The 10 Greatest Star Wars Games of AllTime

Arguing about Star Wars - a pastime as old as the internet itself. But we thought it was time to settle one Star Wars argument once and for all - what are the best Star Wars games of all-time? And so none of you could yell at us for making decisions you disagreed with, we had you vote for it - 188,369 votes later, we have the top ten Star Wars games of all-time! Some of you may be happy, some of you may not be, but at least no one will ever need to argue about Star Wars any more ever again for any reas...ahhh nevermind, we all know this is only going to make things worse, like trying to make out with your brother to make an intergalactic drug dealer jealous.

 

10. Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy

The 10 Greatest Star Wars Games of AllTime

The problem with a lot of Star Wars games is they all feel a little too similar - how many times can they try to realistically recreate the Battle of Hoth or put you in the shoes of a Jedi just learning their powers (the answer is "as many times as they want," and frankly I'm pretty okay with that)? But sometimes a Star Wars game comes along that breaks the mold and tries a new approach to something we're all familiar with - and that's what happened with Lego Star Wars II. Improving on a lot of things from the first Lego Star Wars (including better camera, more characters, and NOT being about the prequels), LSW II made the original trilogy a lot goofier and more fun than it had any right to be. Plus, it didn't hurt that the Lego version of "Luke, I am your father" didn't need to recreate Mark Hamill's cry-face for that scene.

Article Google Is Literally Becoming SkyNet

Google Is Literally Becoming SkyNet

You know Google? That fun-loving, carefree internet mom 'n pop operation from The Internship, where everyone just spends all day goofin' off and making neat websites for you and I to use for free? They're very quickly becoming SkyNet (that malevolent, world-destroying, Austrian-robot-creating doom-computer from The Terminator series). No matter what Owen Wilson/Vince Vaughn buddy comedies would have you believe, Google wants to control everything and know everything. But we already knew that, and as long as they're giving us better search results than Bing, who cares?

What if I told you Google just got in the Murder-Robot business?

Well, maybe not technically Murder-Robots (yet), but definitely robots that could be capable of murdering you at some point in the future. You see, Google just bought Boston Dynamics, a company that builds terrifying robots (and sounds an awful lot like another evil corporation, Fringe's Massive Dynamic):
