Thief, Middle-earth, Dumbledore in TES Online & Jazzpunk
by Jordan Devore

Here's Max to cap off the week of videogame news. He claims his laptop battery is almost out of juice but I think he just wanted to get the weekend started early. I'd have done the same thing.

The new Thief and Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, two games that have experienced their fair share of criticism from fans of those properties, got the preview treatment. We also saw trailers for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, The Elder Scrolls Online's packed voice cast, and Jazzpunk. That last one will rank among the year's best game trailers, mark my words. Whoa.

More than anything, I'm pleased to hear that Max agrees with me about the stupidity of the name "The Golf Club." Take that, Steven! And bring your puns with you.

Very Quick Tips: OlliOlli photo
Very Quick Tips: OlliOlli
by Chris Carter

OlliOlli is a very, very interesting game. It explains exactly what you have to do outright at the start, and even then, I had trouble. That's because I basically had to re-learn everything I knew about skateboarding games.

Without grasping certain concepts, OlliOlli can be pretty brutal, so here's a bit of help.

Review: OlliOlli
by Ian Bonds

I was always a fan of skateboarding games. From Skate or Die to the Tony Hawk series, and most everything in between, I've played and enjoyed my fair share, some more than others. And while the heyday has passed, I still occasionally break out the old titles just to see if I can still rack up the high scores and complete sick lines in a single run.

If you're like me, OlliOlli is just the game you've been waiting for.

Shaq promises that Shaq Fu 2 is 'coming soon'

Shaquille O'Neal is at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show, which makes me happy. What makes me even happier, however, is that when jokingly asked by GamerFitNation if we'd ever get to see a sequel to 1994's Shaq Fu, he said ...

Review: Indoor Sports World photo
Review: Indoor Sports World
by Ian Bonds

Bar games (or pub games) can be a fun diversion when you're out and about: hanging with friends, drinking, and generally making a fool of yourselves when at a bar. The bar atmosphere and playing with friends is what makes games like billiards, snooker, air hockey, and darts fun.

So naturally, a portable title featuring unpopulated venues and minimal online support is a perfect way to play them. Or rather, it isn't.

Impressions: Madden NFL 25 (Xbox One and PS4)

It's tough to feel the need to upgrade to a "next-gen" version of a game when so many of them are practically identical to the product you already bought. Though some PS4 and Xbox One titles have drastic differences like a va...
