With the release of the third Kingdom Hearts (13th) game just about a week away, I figured it would be worth looking back at a few notable world, technical, and gaming events that have happened each year since the release of Kingdom Hearts 2 back in 2006. I’ve also reached out to the staff and included their thoughts on the first time they played the game way back when. Keep in mind that that for the sake of keeping this list shorter than the Bible, I’m going to include 10 notable events each year, or else by the time I finish Kingdom Hearts 4 will be available for preorder on the Playstation 10.2006 Kingdom Hearts 2 officially launches in the west on March 28th and September 28th in the EU Facebook was opened to the public to anybody with a valid email address A class action lawsuit was filed against Rockstar games and its publisher Take-two interactive for its inclusion of the “Hot Coffee” mod in GTA: San Andreas Twitter is opened to the public … [Read more...] about Almost Everything That Happened in Gaming & Tech Between The Release Of Kingdom Hearts 2 & 3

In a modernist hotel lobby on the outskirts of Barcelona I sit face to face with the President. He's pretty casual as far as presidents go, dressed in jeans and a t-shirt, wearing sunglasses even though we're inside. He's got a tattoo up the underside of his forearm which reads 'Neverdie'.

This saw a boom in sports video games being released throughout the 1970s such as Taito’s Davis Cup, Soccer, and Pro Hockey, and Sega’s Hockey TV. In the 1980s, Iconic games such as Activision Tennis, Track and Field, and Pole Position hit the shelves as the decade was welcomed in.
