World of Goo

10-17-2008

Gone are the days when owning your favorite game music required spending exorbitant amounts of money on a Japanese import. I say good riddance (though I still cherish my old Final Fantasy Tactics soundtrack CD). These days, s...

Who's That Flying?

11-16-2010

UK indies Mediatonic sure are a busy bunch. Not only did they release a ton of browser games for the likes of Adult Swim and SEGA, as well as mobile games, but their previous PSP Minis title Monsters (Probably) Stole My Princ...

Worms: Battle Islands

01-14-2011

Milking a franchise is one thing, but if you hook a milk machine up to a cow for long enough eventually nothing's going to be left. The cow's going to fall over, die, and the only thing you'll be sucking out are the innards o...

Warriors: Legends of Troy

03-18-2011

The Dynasty Warriors series is incredibly notable in terms of demonstrating how different Western and Japanese audiences can be. In Japan, Dynasty Warriors is a chart topper and system seller, a cultural phenomenon. Over here...

WWE All Stars

03-29-2011

As someone who grew up in the ’80s, I have fond memories of these rubber WWF toys that I’d ricochet all over my house. Drop Hulk Hogan on his rubbery toes in just the right place and he’d spring forward, sma...

Worms Ultimate Mayhem

10-08-2011

The Worms series has worked well as a downloadable franchise, finding a good home on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network. Fans of turn-based strategic combat have enjoyed the simplicity and fun of the series, and as such, the titles have sold well. For its newest iteration, Team17 has taken a step forward by adding a slew of new options, while simultaneously taking a step back.

Wizorb

10-19-2011

We knew that Wizorb was headed to the PlayStation Store as a minis title, but now we have a firm date for North America: Tuesday, July 24. It'll be playable on PS3, PSP, and "eventually" on Vita. Wizorb is in the same vein a...

Where-is-my-Heart?

12-12-2011

Just the term "PlayStation Mini" seems to be a running gag among some people, as games under the Mini umbrella appear to be regarded, sweepingly, with puzzling derision or plain indifference. That never made sense to me, espe...

Wipeout 2048

02-13-2012

The Wipeout games have always served as a solid system showcase with their flashy graphics and impressive sense of speed, so Studio Liverpool's latest, Wipeout 2048, makes for a nice launch title for the PlayStation Vita...

Warp

02-17-2012

If you've been holding out for Warp, but you don't happen to own an Xbox 360, you'll be relieved to know that it is finally out for PlayStation 3 and PC. On PC though, you won't find it on Steam. Instead, you'll have to head...

Wargame: European Escalation

03-01-2012

Modern-day military simulation Wargame: European Escalation is now out for Linux users. If you own it on Mac or PC, you already own it on Linux thanks to Steam. Along with the strategy game being released on Linux, there is a...

Waking Mars

03-01-2012

If you didn't see this coming, then you clearly don't pay enough attention to the Humble Bundle. The recently announced Humble Bundle with Android 6 is halfway through its two-week run, and that means a "surprise" addition of...

Waveform

03-20-2012

I don't get to play enough games like Waveform. For starters, it's an independent title that doesn't use 8- or 16-bit graphics and isn't painfully derivative which, unfortunately, describes much of the stuff I'm willing to sh...

Warriors Orochi 3

03-28-2012

Warriors Orochi 3 is Tecmo Koei's Super Smash Bros. Considering Nintendo's pedigree as compared to Tecmo Koei's, that statement can be seen as quite laughable, but nevertheless, Warriors Orochi 3 dabbles in the kind of crosso...

World Gone Sour

04-13-2012

The idea of buying an interactive commercial is like battery acid in the minds of most adult gamers, but we blissfully forget that we once paid full price for entire videogames that existed purely to push another product.&nbs...

Warlock - Master of the Arcane

05-18-2012

Back in May I reviewed Warlock: Master of the Arcane, a delightful magical 4X game which tasks mages with building empires and generally kicking the crap out of each other and the hordes of unfriendly NPC monsters that r...

Wreckateer

07-24-2012

I've been playing a fair bit of Wreckateer, finding it to be one of those rare Kinect games which manages to contain both casual appeal and strategic depth. Think it's simple? Watch this video of the lead designer playing on...

Way of the Samurai 4

09-18-2012

Way of the Samurai 4 is cutting a trail to PC later this year, Ghostlight has announced. The publisher admits porting the open-world action game is a tad outside its wheelhouse, but decided to take a swing at it all the same....

War of the Roses

War of the Roses newest map, Greenwood Forest, is now available as part of a free downloadable content pack called "Outside the Law." In this lush forest players will get to brutally kill each other with new weapons...

Worms Revolution

10-16-2012

What could be better than worms and ice cream? How about worms, ice cream and a arsenal of crazy weapons that you can blow up your friends with. Team17 has released the first piece of DLC for Worms Revolution, the Funfai...

WWE '13

11-03-2012

Ah, annual sports iterations. Many of us await them with open arms year after year, and the rest yawn in disapproval. After the massive overhaul with the Predator Technology engine in WWE '12, fans were asking, "What's next?"...

Warlords

11-14-2012

In the '80s, if you had three friends over who all wanted to play Atari with you, there was really only one game you would reach for. Warlords was the go-to game for multiplayer combat, and it was also the source for many fru...

Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper

11-21-2012

Warriors Orochi 3 was one of the best entries in Koei's long-running Warriors series, perhaps since Dynasty Warriors 3. Not only was it packed with content, the inclusion of Ryu Hayabusa, Joan of Arc, and other characters fro...
