Enslaved: Odyssey to the West could be the sleeper hit of the fall

By Quibian Salazar-Moreno
It’s tough for any new game franchise to get the attention it needs during the crowded fall/holiday season. Among games like Halo, Call of Duty, Rock Band and other top-tier video game franchises, it’s easy for a game like Enslaved: Odyssey to the West to be ignored. But the game, a third-person action-adventure, takes place 150 years from now in a post-apocalyptic America, what’s a better recipe for a game than that?

Although familiar, Halo: Reach doesn’t disappoint

By Quibian Salazar-Moreno
The original Halo game, Halo: Combat Evolved, hit stores shelves back in 2001 to much praise and critical delight. Developed by game studio Bungie and distributed by Microsoft, the game was a bona fide hit and put the newly released Microsoft Xbox on the map. Fast-forward nine years later with a handful of Halo games, novels and a movie in the works, Bungie has made its final Halo game, Halo: Reach.

Mafia II: Great story, but limited gameplay

By Quibian Salazar-Moreno
The original Mafia game, Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven, was a story that took place in the 1930s where the bootlegging of alcohol ruled the streets. In Mafia II, we move up to the 1940s in the midst of World War II and the mob still looking for ways to make money now that the Prohibtion era has been over for years.

Martina Hoffmann's world as art

By Marisa Aragón Ware
People were generally very friendly and open, but as a white minority in black Africa, I definitely stuck out, Hoffmann says. It really set a standard for how I like to approach otherness.

What's in a video game?

Impossible to ignore, the question arises: Are they art?

By Adam Perry
At this point, presumably, none among us understands exactly what that incredible amount of time and energy did to our minds and bodies. Still, I presume you, too, can feel pretty good knowing that your childhood video-game habit didnt progress into playing Grand Theft Auto.

KGNU turns 32

By David Accomazzo
It was a feature interviewing the mothers enrolled in the teen pregnancy program at Fairview High School, and it was one of the most honest, revealing and jarring looks at teenage mothers that I ever heard.

Frank Frazetta, fantasy painter and illustrator, dies at 82

By McClatchy-Tribune News Service
Frank Frazetta, the fantasy painter and illustrator whose images of sinewy warriors and lush vixens graced paperback novels, album covers and comic books for decades and became something close to the contemporary visual definition of the sword-and-sorcery genres, died Monday after suffering a stroke the night before. He was 82.

Movement in vastness: A dancer’s meditation on empty spaces

By April Charmaine
Empty is like throwing up. Empty is like being lonely. Empty is like a well, a deep and scary place. Or perhaps emptiness is a wonderful place of possibility. Imagine pondering this topic for nearly a year. That is what Danelle Helander and her Empty Spaces comrades Michael Zekonis and Nina Rolle did.

The science of Signtology: Crafting pop art from the everyday

By Quibian Salazar-Moreno
While Dan Ericson was attending Arapahoe Community College to tighten up his graphic design skills, he didn’t expect a simple homework assignment to shape his career as an artist. “I was doing a project for a regular drawing class; it was portraits of people,” Ericson says. “I ran out of supplies in the middle of the night and the project was due the next morning. So I just grabbed the next best thing, which was a street sign that was outside. So I grabbed it, painted a portrait of Ice Cube on it and got a horrible grade.”
