  • Is There a Superman Game on Its Way?
    Hoo boy. I'm not sure you have enough time to hear all my reasons why Superman is the worst. And I know that I certainly do not have the time to listen to you argue with me. So, let's just all keep an open mind... and realize a game where the premise is your character is invincible will be, at best, boring. [Game Zone]

  • Is Sony Not Ready to Announce Their "Project Morpheus" VR Helmet Project?
