Review: Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy photo
Review: Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy
by Dale North

Finally! The story of Final Fantasy XIII is finally final with Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy. But this closing act turns the trilogy on its head with brand new play mechanics and a game structure that is unlike anything seen in the previous titles. Lightning herself may be (mostly) the same, but everything else is quite different.

The third time's the charm, right?

The nine worst girlfriends in videogames photo
The nine worst girlfriends in videogames
by Vito Gesualdi

If you’re anything like me, Valentine’s Day is a very special time of year. A time to be reminded that your crippling social anxieties and complete lack of desirable personality traits mean you’re likely to spend the rest of your sad life painfully alone (and don’t try to pretend it’s because you’re such a “nice guy,” because you’re probably a scumbag).

Thankfully, we’ll always have our favorite escapist media to keep us company, the magic of video games allowing poor souls like myself to embark on soul-searching adventures, challenge power-hungry villains, and of course, fall in love with a variety of glamorous heroines.

Thing is, though these various ladies of gaming all have something special to offer, many come complete with a few unforeseen pitfalls. Point is, if you’re planning on spending this lover’s holiday piss-drunk, fantasizing about your favorite digital damsels, the last thing you want to do is pick a clunker. That’s why I've compiled this handy field guide on nine gaming girlfriends to avoid.

Final Fight: Some guys are kicking some ass

Cities in fighting games suck (or are totally awesome)

One of the two. I can't decide which. Fighterpedia is a fairly new web series about fighting game lore. There have been two videos prior to this one, but I wasn't sold on the concept until episode three here compared the his...

The Ballad of Mike Haggar

I tried to write my own verse in a vain attempt to match the poetic brilliance at work in this poem exalting the might of the mayor of Metro City. It is beyond me. Witness and be amazed.  [via YouTube]

Talking Tekken with series producer Katsuhiro Harada

Katsuhiro Harada, the over eccentric producer of the Tekken series, was a busy man at this year's Comic-Con. With myriad Tekken properties to pimp though, he still made time to discuss anything I wanted about his esteemed fig...
