Draw Something bought by Zynga

Draw Something bought by Zynga

The party was in celebration of Zynga’s purchase of Omgpop, a New York-based game maker founded by Mr. Forman, and it was extravagant to an extent that Omgpop’s employees could only have dreamed of until recently. Omgpop had been limping along until Draw Something, a smartphone game it introduced just seven weeks ago, became a breakout hit. [...]

Doom 3 source code now available, gory customizations welcomed

Doom for everyone. It's not a particularly festive message, but as promised earlier this week, the Doom 3 source code is now out on a general public license. Programming types can meddle with the game's inner workings as wintery temperatures force them to huddle close to the warm hum of excessive gaming rigs. Doom dad John Carmack announced the [...]

Duke Nukem Forever finally available

Duke Nukem Forever finally available

Duke Nukem Forever, a game trapped in development hell since the mid-1990s, is finally on sale.

Economists Steven D. Levitt (of “Freakonomics” fame) and Thomas J. Miles argue in a new study that poker is a game of skill, not chance, and therefore should not be regarded as “gambling” under the law

In the short term, chance can indeed have a huge effect on the fortunes of any given poker player. Short term variance can cause the tourist rube to go home a few hundred bucks richer on a Saturday night, or cause a seasoned professional to lose tens of thousands of dollars in the span of a few weeks.

PlayStation Network: hackers claim to have 2.2m credit cards

COINCIDENCE? Come on Guardian. Don't lend credit to Sony's story that "Some credit card information may have possibly kind of been a little bit stolen/borrowed." Hackers in underground online forums are claiming to have access to credit card details stolen from Sony's PlayStation Network in mid-April, though security researchers say it is not [...]

GoldenEye remake for Wii and DS leaked by Activision

GoldenEye remake for Wii and DS leaked by Activision

I thought waiting 12 years for a StarCraft sequel was bad, but it turns out we've actually been waiting 13 years for a GoldenEye remake, and we didn't even know it was coming.  Many companies have wanted to remake the game, and everybody else has wanted to play it, but it's always been held up by red tape.  The James Bond License was bought [...]
