Review: LittleBigPlanet 2

Cool level, bro!
As in the old saw about Communism, LittleBigPlanet 2 works, in theory. Other games may have level editors. This one has world editors.

A banner year for pixelated pieces of ass

Review: NBA Jam

Baller status update
Maybe NBA Jam wasn't the best game of all time, but when it appeared in arcades back in 1993, it acquired a pop-culture cachet that most games couldn't dream of.

LO500 Battle of the Week: World of Warcraft vs. The Sims

Do you pull for the plumb-bobs, or do you do it for the Horde?
The Sims and World of Warcraft both came out in the early aughts. The franchises are two of the most popular franchises of all time, alongside Myst , believe it or not. But unlike Myst , these two games have had years of expansion packs and upgrades.
