Robbers target games cafe, get beat-upHave you ever been to Hawaii? I hear they have some pretty crazy gamers. A trio of would-be robbers are testament to that claim, having been beaten up by a group of customers at a games cafe in Kaneohe just last week. Three masked assailants stormed the cafe collecting money from patrons, but when they asked one gamer to hand over his Nintendo DS, a line in the sand was drawn. SHORYUKEN!

Violent video games could 'reduce hostility'Almost strangely, and most certainly conversely to many studies publicised by the mainstream media, a new study by Texas A&M International University's associate professor, Dr. Christopher J.

The first two instalments of the Mass Effect series are widely considered to be some of the best games ever made. Certainly they rank among the greatest RPGs. With the outstanding quality of their story telling, and their stunning audio and visuals, they set the bar so high for the third instalment that some began to wonder if disappointment was inevitable. Thankfully the doubters have been proven wrong, as with Mass Effect 3 Bioware has not only cleared the bar, but they raised it several notches before doing so. The game is not without its problems.
