With the movie season ramping up, so does the amount of obligatory movie tie-in games.  We’ve already seen the likes of Lego Pirates of the Caribbean and Thor in the past weeks.  Why should this week be any less cinema-friendly? Just in time to come out alongside its theatrical release, Kung Fu Panda 2 hits… Read More »

The topic this week is a lesson on how software updates, such as the Xbox 360 Dashboard and PS3 XMB work. Why do some features that gamers may want might never… Read More »

Her ruby red lips hold an unlit cigarette between them.  Her baby blues lock onto me.  “Got a light?” she asks with a half smile, her hand gracefully swiping a wisp of hair from her face. “Sure….” I steal a glance at her GameStop name badge, “… Jenny.” I hold a lighter to her, a… Read More »

In previous episodes of COAAA, I’ve complained about some really bad games, but I believe I finally found one so bad it makes all the others look like video game masterpieces.  This is one of those games that has nothing good about it and makes you wonder how it ever got published. The game is… Read More »

Comments Off on Release Round-Up for the Week of May 8

This week is what I call a potpourri of electronic entertainment. A core gamer will be able to play Brink a little earlier than previously thought since the release date was moved up because the game was completed early. We don’t see that happen very often with the video game world, so let’s not look… Read More »

Comments Off on Mass Effect 3 Delayed?! Good.

I have a confession. When I heard that Mass Effect was delayed, I was actually relieved. I just got back into the Mass Effect series with the second installment of the trilogy after the school semester ended a little over a week ago.

The Married Gamers are joined this week by Eric Bouchard of Everyday Gamers and Steve Haberman aka TheMarriedGamer to discuss rumors and why they seem to permeate the video game communities and sites.
