Play For Japan Gets Stealthy

Play For Japan is a website created to help raise money for the relief efforts after Japan was hit by the recent earthquake and tsunami. The website is a collection of auctions that will go towards helping Japan get back on it's feet after this terrible disaster.

As many of you know, Japan is the place where many of our favorite games come from. If it wasn't for Japan we wouldn't have the games industry we have today, and we wouldn't have games like Metal Gear Solid and Tenchu, that stealth players like us love so much. If you can afford some of these auctions (like the insane number of Metal Gear Solid auctions or this piece of Batman: Arkham Asylum art) please take the time to bid, and if you can't afford them then just donate what you can here. Every little bit does count in a crisis like this.

Splinter Cell Fan Film Proves Worthy Of The Splinter Cell Name

This impressive Splinter Cell fan film follows an NSA agent code-named Corbin. Yes, I know it's not Sam Fisher but it's still very good. And let's be honest that Splinter Cell movie that was teased in Chaos Theory is never going to get made so you'll just have to settle for a quality fan film instead.
