Last week, I get a chance to get hands on time with easily one of the most anticipated games of the holiday season, Ubisoft’s Assassins’ Creed 3. Instead of being on foot and climbing on rooftops in Boston, I was established in Caribbean on controlling a boat.

Who hasn't fantasized about less-than-likely Sony character crossovers? Who hasn't envisioned a knock-down, drag-out battle to the death between iconic PlayStation mainstays at a time? Those might sound like bizarre gaming fantasies, but at least a few of us have sat and pondered how such a game might pan out.

If there’s one thing I take pride in, it’s my music collection. Over 1600 songs on the iPod, and that doesn’t even include the large amount of playlists I’ve generated on Spotify. So any game that makes use of the music library stored on your computer, much like my beloved Audiosurf, is doing something right. And much like Audiosurf, Symphony combines stunning visuals, addictive gameplay, and the music you love into an all-around fantastic game.

I wanted to review Dust: An Elysian Tail because it looked beautiful. That and because, being part of XBLA's Summer of Arcade, the game had a chance at joining the revered company of titles like Braid, LIMBO, and Bastion.

LONDON -- Team USA makes it back-to-back Olympic golds with a 107-100 win over spain, the same team they beat 118-107 at the Beijing Olympics in a similar down-to-the-wire thriller. LeBron James led the way with his great plays including a thunderous dunk in the fourth quarter in the tight game where Team USA only had a one point lead after starting the third and fourth quarters. Most of the Team USA ballers are also big gamers off the court including Kobe and LeBron. We talked to them exclusively about their gaming in these exclusive video interviews.

Dwightmare is apparently over. Dwight Howard is coming the the Los Angeles Lakers. In a blockbuster four team, nine player trade between the Lakers, the Orlando Magic, the Philadelphia 76ers and the Denver Nuggets that matches the 1996 blockbuster trade for Shaquille O'Neal, the Lakers will finally get the big man that every NBA team coveted in Dwight Howard. While the trade still needs to be finalized this afternoon, the details of the trade are that the 76ers will get Andrew Bynum, arguably the second-best center in the NBA, along with Jason Richardson while the Nuggets would get Team USA forward Andre Iguodala and the Magic would get Arron Afflalo, Al Harrington, Moe Harkless, Nikola Vucevic and three protected first round draft picks, one from each team plus two second round draft picks, according to SI.com. The Lakers would ask get Chris Duhon and Earl Clark. The Lakers did not have to give up Pau Gasol and will project a lineup that also includes Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash to form a "Big Four" that will match up to Miami's "Big Three" and the Oklahoma Thunder's young core of Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and James Harden. We caught up with Howard during NBA All-Star Game in an exclusive video interview to talk about his favorite off-court activity, video gaming.

I started gaming so many years ago with a classic, Mario Kart. One of the staple games of any N64 owner’s collection, this game presented a plethora of tracks, power-ups, characters and weapons, and was a Mario franchise that never saw an unpopular or negatively received release. Do you know why Mario Kart was so instantly addicting? Well, it’s not because you had to use only Bowser and green shells on only six or seven tracks for the first fifty fucking races in order to unlock one character, kart, or power-up at a time.

The term “browser-based game” is not one that typically sits well with gamers. It brings up the repressed fact that there are tons of ignored invites on your Facebook asking you to help plant crops on Farmville, or go hold up a bank in Mafia Wars, or guide a football into the endzone in Return Man. But there is the occasional diamond in the rough, and Drakensang Online certainly shines in comparison to other games you typically play on Chrome, Firefox, or even (*shudders*) Explorer.
