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...

WWE 2K15

11-20-2014

When its entrance music hit last fall, WWE 2K15 was met with a chorus of boos from the audience. Now, it's trying to be the good guy and win a few fans over, and it's doing so with free DLC. 2K Games announced today that new...

WWE 2K14

10-28-2013

Each and every year since the beginning of the Smackdown series, I return home from a midnight release, lace up the boots, put on my mask, and start my journey to be the greatest superstar to ever step into the ring. Ever...

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?"...

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...

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...

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.

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...

Worms Clan Wars

09-03-2013

I think that Team 17 needs some help. Some dastardly villain has clearly locked the developer up and abandoned them, because less than a year after releasing the excellent Worms Revolution, the invertebrate-obsessed studio ha...

Worms Battlegrounds

05-30-2014

Coming up on the 20th anniversary of the Worms series, yet another Worms game is upon us. This is technically the first current-gen title though, worming its way onto the Xbox One and PS4. As you can imagine so...

World of Warplanes

12-21-2013

Free-to-play is still a bad word these days with a lot of gamers. But it doesn't have to be. Titles like Path of Exile have shown that providing a model where most of the content is free, but the cosmetic upgrades are pa...

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...

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...

World End Economica Episode 1

05-26-2014

Visual novels are a finicky medium. It's difficult enough to drum up interest because of their exotic origins, and harder still to find an audience due to their nature -- it's a bunch of reading. And you can't always be sure ...

Wolfenstein: The New Order

05-19-2014

Wolfenstein: The New Order is the first game in the series to be officially released in Germany, and to make that happen developer Machine Games had to do a little self-censorship on their Nazi killing simulator. The main ch...

Woah Dave!

11-02-2014

We heard about April's PlayStation Plus games earlier this week but here's another late addition: Woah Dave! from Choice Provisions. The penny-collecting, alien-dodging, egg-throwing arcade game was free for subscribers 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...

Witch and Hero

04-30-2013

Retro games have their place in gaming just as much as contemporary titles. A game's visual style has nothing to do with quality, on both sides of the spectrum -- anything has the potential to be a great experience. Of course...

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...

WildStar

09-08-2014

Wildstar once stood firm in the face of a growing tide of MMOs ditching subscriptions and instead opting for Free-to-Play or Guild Wars-style one time purchasing. Developer Carbine has been pretty critical of F2P in the past ...

Wii Party U

10-24-2013

Wii Party U probably isn't going to set the world on fire, but it just might help save the Wii U. The minigame-fest hit shelves in Japan last week along with a special console bundle that also includes New Super Mar...

Wii Fit U

11-20-2013

[Every week, from early November through the end of 2013, I'll report on my use of Wii Fit U and how it benefits my health.] Read Week 1's weigh-in here. If this Wii Fit U weekly weigh-in accomplishes only one thing, I want it to be a clear measure of just how much weight I'll gain Thanksgiving week. It's going to be gross, folks.

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...

White Night

03-11-2015

When people look back upon the great horror games of this year, they're probably going to forget about White Night, and that's understandable. It doesn't break any ground, it isn't littered with jump scares to draw in the You...

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...
