Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn gets an Emmy nomination

I don't care if you like Halo 4, or any game in the series for that matter. Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn is far and away the best example of how to adapt a videogame franchise to a live-action setting. I watched it expecting lit...

GDC: Voltron, T1000 major inspirations for Halo 4 enemies

If there's been on criticism of Halo over the years, it's the relative sameness of the experience. Earlier today during a discuss of the new enemy designs in Halo 4, Scott Warner of 343 industries mentioned that some of their main inspirations for the development of the Promethean units were highly advanced, amorphous foes.

Impressions: Halo 4: Majestic Map Pack

In many ways, the Crimson Map Pack was a bit of a letdown for Halo 4 fans. The over-emphasis on vehicles and the concept of giant new maps on top of over-saturated giant maps from the base game was really frustrating, and did...

I know what a game is photo
I know what a game is
by Daniel Starkey

A lot of people have been running around attacking games like Proteus or The Walking Dead; claiming that they aren’t, in fact, games. Generally speaking these people spout off random things about requiring “win states” and rules.

It’s an odd thing, but one that seems to be gaining more and more traction with those who are opposed to the swelling undercurrent of “indie” and “arthouse” games.  For better or worse, they are locked into one specific definition of what a “game” is, how it should work, etc., and while I don’t really think a global definition is necessary in the first place, their constant whining is something that I feel needs a better response than what I’ve seen floating about thus far.

New releases: Brutal Legend makes PCs metal photo
New releases: Brutal Legend makes PCs metal
by Fraser Brown

Monday has once again snuck up on us like an unfortunate rash you got from a really good weekend. Don't worry, there's cream for that! And much like a soothing medicinal balm, the new releases of the week are here to cure what ails you. 

Brütal Legend finally drops on PC after years of being locked in console servitude, and despite its dodgy strategy portions, we should welcome it with open, heavily tattooed arms. The absolutely cracking soundtrack makes it more than worth a look, and the great voice acting, more than competent action, and art direction that will make your eyes bleed from heavy metal joy makes its failings a lot easier to swallow. 

If metal hurts your delicate ears and Jack Black sends you into a blind rage, then there's still a bunch to look forward to this week. Dynasty Warriors 7: Empires adds some strategy to your hacking and slashing; fans of punishing dungeon crawlers and 3DS owners rejoice, Etrian Odyssey IV finally arrives in the US; Might & Magic Heroes VI gets a new expansion, Shades of Darkness; a curious looking RPG drops on PC in the form of Driftmoon; and Star Wars Pinball is a thing that actually looks pretty groovy.

What will you be using to soothe that nasty rash this week?
