Valve has come under fire from a French consumer association called UFC Que Choisir (slightly different from that other UFC). The organization litigates on behalf of the public, and they feel that Steam is letting customers down. I like what they’re trying to do, but I don’t love their chances here.
Bang! Bang! For years now, movie makers have been thrilling audiences with blazes of bullets. Some shootouts are better than others. These are the best.
Never mind that there was already an Astro Boy reboot in 2009. Or that the previous reboot was not so good. They're giving it another shot, calling it, wait for it, Astro Boy Reboot. It looks very green.
I don't really like fighting games. But I've always had a soft spot for Capcom's Power Stone series, which broke free of the limitations of most other fighters and dropped you in a small 3D arena, meaning your combat felt more "real" than being trapped on a 2D plane. That series is long gone, but this new fighter sure…
Last month, the Paris offices of satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo were attacked, leaving twelve dead. Recently, however, famed Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki said he believes the French paper's Muhammad cartoons were a "mistake."
Damien Hypolite, who by day works for Sciences et Avenir, is also a bit of an Assassin's Creed fan. Seeing as the latest game is set in Paris, he figured he'd print out some screenshots, take them to the actual spots in the real world they're based on, and see how they shape up.
With the PlayStation 2 on the way, the April 1999 issue of France's Player One magazine had some ideas on the future of Mario and Sonic.
Anime, gaming, and cosplay event Japan Expo is underway in Paris. And since Riot Games is in attendance, the studio created a notice on the League of Legends website. The image accompanying the announcement has some Korean gamers up in arms.
In America and Japan, Sonic is a fun-loving hedgehog that loves gold rings, going fast, scarves and occasionally kissing human women. In France? Sonic just wants to see the world burn.
Here's something odd: David Cage, the maker of Beyond: Two Souls and Heavy Rain, now has something in common with Marcel Marceau, Jacques Cousteau and Alexis de Tocqueville: all are members of France's Legion d'honneur, an award akin to being knighted in the United Kingdom.
French company Lëkki specialises in turning old consoles into new things of beauty. We've shown you their Super Nintendo work before, but they're now offering some Nintendo 64s as well.
Sure, you could stay at a normal hotel while you're in France. Or...you could stay at the Xbox One hotel—because that's a thing now.
Five French teenagers have been arrested after getting drunk, kidnapping a llama and, according to The Independent, "taking on him on a tour of Bordeaux via the city's tram system".
Quantic Dream, the studio behind Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls, are about as polarising as a developer gets. Some people hate their games. Some people love them! I'd like to think there's one aspect of their output we can all get behind, though: the way they include some of the world's best animation shorts in…
Time for another tale—albeit unconfirmed—of the inside workings of Nintendo, though this one's a little saucier than the last. Because of Europeans and sex shops. Read it here via a 2011 translation of an account that originally appeared on fan site Classic-Zone. A fascinating read about what it might be like to be in…
A stunt at a game store in France went pear-shaped earlier in the week when staff dressed like gangsters for the GTA V launch, and did such a good job a police armed response team showed up.
This is what happens when a GoPro camera is strapped to the back of an eagle. You get the world's greatest third-person (third-bird?) view.
