The Orange Box comes with not one, but FIVE games. Half Life 2, HL2 Episode 1 and Episode 2, Team Fortress 2, and Portal. Guess what? It is a blast to play. I would have to say that this version easily beats …
I got my XBOX 360 back just in time to rent Halo3 at Blockbuster. Now that I have finished the game, here is my unbiased review.

Stranglehold for the PS3

People are already saying that Warhawk for the Playstation 3 is the best next-gen online game period. I bought the game over the weekend and I have to say that it is an excellent war game, but does take a bit to figure out since there is no manual or …
