Potential HTC Vive customer wonders how much kidney will fetch on the black market (Fauxclusive)

Following the announcement of international pricing for the HTC Vive, Brighton resident and VR gaming enthusiast Aaron Finnick began poking the left side of his body trying to guess how much his kidney would be worth on the open market. The...

 
Borderlands 3
Here we are, more than three years removed from the launch of the most recent Gearbox-developed Borderlands game, Borderlands 2. Right now the studio is focused on the hobby-grade, meta-growth Battleborn, but after that relea...   read

Halo World Championship NA Finals were my first MLG event, won't be my last

I've always been a big fan of the Halo series, and I especially love the multiplayer for Halo 5: Guardians, so when I heard the MLG Halo World Championship North American Finals were taking place in Columbus, Ohio, literally under...

 
Critical Role
Marisha Ray is surrounded by some of her closest friends, but there are tears welling in her eyes. A recent revelation has filled her with doubt and guilt in equal measure, leading her to believe that her previous actions may...   read

Rocket League
I spent part of last summer posting Rocket League GIFs with the second-hand knowledge that they were neat. I would link something in our staff chat and if the reaction was palpable enough, I'd write it up. It was like a ...   read

Stupid sexy Ash fan art
I was writing a story about a weird Ketchum and, of course, the internet out-weirded it with ease. It was a well-meaning Google Image Search. Safe Search is even on, filtering explicit results. Just "ash ketchum." Not "ash ke...   read

Popping Cherries: The Legend of Zelda

On this day in 1986, Nintendo released what would become one of the most historically important and influential games of all time, The Legend of Zelda. The game sold more than six million copies on the NES and went on to spawn a series...

 
The Vive is too expensive
With the current exchange rate, the $799 Vive will cost roughly $1099 in Canadian dollars where I live (not counting taxes and any extra charges). That's a whole lot of cash. While I'm as excited as anyone else at the idea of...   read

Games are kicking my ass right now, and it's great

"There's nothing to play right now" is an all-too-common sentiment when the novelty of holiday releases begins to wane. Personally, 2016 has already brought a wealth of Good Stuff that I'll be playing well in to the end of this year, and th...

 
Adam Sandlerhog
By now you've probably seen the recent news of a Sonic the Hedgehog movie, or maybe you caught wind of it when it was news the first time two years ago. Either way, I'm here to answer the question that no one is asking: who should be cast in the upcoming part animation, part live-action on-screen adaption of the Blue Blur? The answer? All your favorite stars from Happy Madison Productions.   read

Firewatch
As I trekked through Firewatch's forested western Wyoming landscape, one song kept entering and leaving my head, and it wasn't one of the game's serene, folksy acoustic guitar tunes. It was a song I listened to a lo...   read

And the winner of the Games Journalism Award...not a games journalist!

The 5th Annual New York Game Awards took place tonight in Arizona. Nah, nah. It was in New York. I fooled you for a second, though, I bet. The event is put on by the New York Videogame Critics Circle, which counts Samit as one of its membe...

 
Assassin's Creed
The Assassin's Creed Chronicles titles have been criticized (and rightfully so) for their lack of emphasis on narrative. Even though these are games where the narrative stakes are just as high as the mainline Assass...   read

Spoilers
In the last few months, two games were released that I feel might be among my favorite games of all time, Undertale and The Witness. But what exactly makes them two of the greatest gaming experiences I've had in recent m...   read

Destiny opinion
I've been playing a lot of Destiny lately -- late to the party, I know -- and going deep into the rabbit hole almost requires players to frequent r/DestinyTheGame or some other similar community site. Without it, I'd never kn...   read

IS IT ART?
While I would sell out any one of you reading right now to have spent the last week or two playing XCOM 2, our review copy must have been lost in the mail. It's out, probably dope as hell, and my guy Nic is on it working on t...   read

Popping Cherries: Final Fantasy VII

Nobody has time to play every video game. We all have classic games that have slipped us by for whatever reason, be it time constraints, money issues, initial lack of interest, or any number of other things. But that just means it's still p...

Homecoming was the Hollywood take on Silent Hill. All crisp and clean, with a Jensen Ackles-type in the lead, and a straightforward plot that paid more homage to Dean Koontz’s Phantoms than Koji Suzuki’s Dark Wate...   read

The Witness puzzle that's vexing everyone [Update]

[Update: Jonathan Blow answered our inquiry. Here's what he had to say, edited slightly to omit anything that could be the most minor of spoilers: "Yes, I pretty much figured that one to be one of the hardest individual puzzles in the ...

 
The Witness
I've put a lot of time into The Witness lately. Like, a lot a lot. Effort too. This might be the most draining review experience of my career. It's rewarding though, and that makes it less burdensome even if it...   read

Yoshinori Ono interview
