What is your take on HD remakes this generation?


I'm for them, depending on the situation
May 19
Are you ready for some remakes? Capcom is, as are a ton of other publishers. It feels like every other week there's an announcement for a "remastered" or "definitive" edition of a recently released game, and at times, it can get a bit ridiculous. I've seen a lot of talk recently regarding this practice, and I figured it was time for a discussion. read

Please look forward to it

Half as good as you remember
Half-Life was like a magic trick. It was a game you could show to people who weren't gamers and they'd get into it, a gateway drug. A real game (not some glorified puzzle book like Myst) that had the cinematic flair and prese... read feature

Yet another Majora's Mask 3D trailer to tide you over


This one's for the fine folks in the UK
Jan 16
Nintendo sure has hit the marketing hard for Majora's Mask 3D in the few days since its wildly popular Direct. It seems like the 3DS remake has been everywhere lately. There's just under a month to go until release, and it remains to be seen whether there's enough steam to push the hype train at full power for that long. Final stop: Termina. read
