It's a novel concept to take some of the most revered console and PC games from less than a decade ago and put them on phones. Seriously, how have we come this far this fast?! The devices that sit in our pockets and are prima...

Braid is a game that has generated a lot of press before its Xbox Live Arcade release, be it for its unique mechanics, gorgeous watercolor graphics or controversial price point. The brainchild of independent game developer Jo...

In a somewhat baffling move, it appears the raucous Epic Games and People Can Fly first-person shooter Bulletstorm has been removed from the likes of Steam. It's a classic case of "here today and gone tomorrow" as the skillsh...

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam is one of those rare products where if it simply works as promised -- or gets even marginally close -- it's a crowd pleaser. DICE ran into some temporary technical issues with online multipl...

BattleBlock Theater is a great platformer (especially when played cooperatively), and now it's free on Games with Gold on the Xbox 360. Gotham City Imposters is out, and BattleBlock is in, with all its "buckle your ...

There is a trend with a lot of modern puzzle games and platformers to have hectic gameplay, and to punch you in the balls while you play. This might seem awful to some, but most gamers gladly accept this extra challenge. The ...

I'd all but forgotten about Borderlands 2 at this point. My wife and I stopped playing long ago, half of our season passes never explored. And yet, it's allure remains strangely potent upon viewing this latest short-for...

Across the Arkham titles, the developers have included at least two incredibly well-hidden easter eggs. Who could forget the one in Arkham Asylum that was so stashed away that Rocksteady itself had to reveal i...

My family is very musically inclined. My father sings, and my mother sings and plays guitar. My wife's family is also musical; playing piano, guitar, drums, etc. between her, her brother, father, aunt, and so on. When I was a...

Beyond Good & Evil is a game that needs no introduction, which provides a stiff challenge to anybody attempting to review it in 2011. One of the most respected videogames of all time, applauded for its rich characters, en...

It has been the year of fighting games. Dragon punches, quarter turns, blocks, double jumps, ultras, aerials, health bars, tag teaming, crossovers, and a whole lot more means it's practically 1997 all over again. Know what el...

There's nothing quite like the sensation of causing almost cartoonish levels of destruction to other vehicles in a city devoid of pedestrians, especially when you can take those vehicular shenanigans on th...

Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons just came out for Xbox Live Arcade to little marketing and fanfare this past week. We're here to remind you that's it pretty great though, and something worth adding to your XBLA collection. Or, ...

Borderlands 2's first DLC, Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty, extends the original game's love for having as many Easter eggs as possible. The latest (I'd argue greatest), discovery is that there is a Big Daddy na...

Despite mixed reviews, documented lag issues, and a heap of criticism from players, Splash Damage's Brink is estimated to have sold around 2.5 million copies. According to CEO Paul Wedgewood, the Bethesda-published multi...

In what's been one of the biggest surprises of the year, Yakuza Studio have managed to succeed where so many Japanese developers have failed, creating a solid "Western"-style shooter in Binary Domain. So if you missed ou...

Combat flight simulators, like real-time strategy games, are a resilient breed which has always struggled to find its place on consoles. A mouse and keyboard control scheme is almost always preferred over a gamepad when it co...

So far, the Batman Arkham Origins Season Pass has been a steaming pile of poop. Buyers have received some extremely underwhelming skin packs, and a piss-poor series of challenge maps for their cash, with the promise...

In 2008, Capcom rebooted the Bionic Commando franchise with two remarkably disparate approaches. On one end of the spectrum was the third-person action retail title, Bionic Commando, which found ex-Faith No More singer Mike P...

If you pinned me to the ground, demanding a list of the Xbox 360’s best games, I can promise you Bastion would fall out of my terrified lips. I would also be very confused throughout the whole exchange, but as lo...

Games are growing up. There is a very real movement to mine greater emotional depth from interactive entertainment, to produce clever narratives and explore engaging themes. We're seeing games that strive for a level of matur...
