About fantasy: Please let there be a dragon extinction

One of the hardest things for me to understand is whenever someone belittles a "casual" game (whatever that may be to them) by claiming it's either unoriginal or lacks any sort of cutting-edge quality. I find this funny, because "hardcore" ...   read

The 'geek' question: hobbyist vs. intellectual

The one thing that has always bugged me the most about sports is the use of the word "we." As in, "We won!" No, you didn't win, John Sofaturd from Nothingsville, Ohio. You didn't do anything except sit on your ass and obtain a contact high ...   read

Raven's Cry has pirates that don't act like bilge rats

As a fan of 17th-century pirate history, it has always been kind of a bummer to watch the romanticization of the sea dogs into that of chipper, lenient, morally moderate sailors who merely look grizzled. Edward Teach's Jolly Roger depicted ...   read

Overheard at E3 2012: Sh***ing in the dark edition

One of my personal favorite things about E3 is the eclectic crowd that it attracts. Considering how accessible videogames are these days, it's not hard for anyone to think that people from all walks of life will migrate to the most epic gam...   read

E3: Gorgeous free-to-play shooting all over your Warface

To say that a lot of free-to-play games were at the show this year would be an understatement. Though they weren't all of the same genre, I saw a holy God crap-ton of F2P titles everywhere. This model is spreading like a wildfire, and seems...   read

E3: Blending in with Bostonians in Assassin's Creed III

Even though some other games piqued my interest at this year’s E3 (*cough* Watch Dogs), I must shamelessly admit that I was ultimately excited about Assassin’s Creed III more than anything. I even whimpered and squealed like a t...   read

E3: Scuba-on-scuba action in Arma 3

Bohemia Interactive Studio is showing off a few complex sims at E3 this year, one of which is Arma 3. To its credit, even a slowly paced, open-world shooter can provide enough unique variety to get a tired editor smiling and nodding his hea...   read

E3: TopWare announces Sacrilegium, with screens

Creepy religious symbolism: cool. Survival horror: awesome. What happens when you put them together? Heck if I know, but TopWare Interactive is uncovering this mystery with its newest title, Sacrilegium. Known best for its popular action RP...   read

E3: Crysis 3 has guns that shoot 500 rounds a second

Again, that’s 500 rounds a goddamned second. Surprisingly enough, hands-off demos behind closed doors are typically boring, with a static crowd sitting around, watching in a cold, sound-proof room. Very rarely does that same audience ...   read

E3: Outrun the coppers in NFS: Most Wanted for iOS

I know, these Need for Speed subtitles are getting a bit confusing, but the games are anything but. People seem to find something appealing about driving sexy, nasty cars that break the $100K mark, and playing chicken with the authorities w...   read

E3: Kill viruses and repair DNA in Transcripted

It’s not always necessary for games to have any sort of ultimate meaning or context, but when they do, they’re made a bit more satisfying. When you’re given a role, are required to shoot specific anomalies, and are charged...   read

Preview: Double Fine ventures into The Cave

Double Fine is one of those rare anomalies that carries a truck-ton of admiration from its fans, almost no scorn or distaste from anyone in this industry, and yet it has still experienced a fluctuation of moderate monetary success. And eve...   read

Preview: Ghost Recon Commander shoots you in the Facebook

Woah, a Facebook game! I don't think I've played one of these for a while. In fact, the last Facebook game I played was over a year ago, coincidentally another one linked to Ubisoft -- something about castles that my girlfriend urged me to ...   read

Preview: Kinect rules with Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor

It's somewhat difficult to deny at this point that the whole motion controls movement has been a bit of a bust. Developers never quite figured out how to properly implement them into already established genres. The traditional controller ha...   read

Preview: Steam and spirituality in Civ V: Gods & Kings

Few games actually require no introduction, and this is certainly one of them. This long-winded, turn-based strategy series has persistently delved deep into the core of human history, and what it takes for a nation to start, grow and die. ...   read

About the 'art' debate: Please shut the f**k up

The greatest comment I've ever read from a community member anywhere was, "Son of a s**t-eating Christ, not another 'games as art' argument. Excuse me while I alleviate my pain by shooting out my left ball." Nope, I'm not making that up; so...   read

Preview: Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed

Few developers have a large enough catalog of praised franchises that they can make entire games featuring a variety of their own iconic characters. Nintendo is obviously the leading company that has made a habit of doing this regularly, a...   read

Preview: Fun with guns in Max Payne 3 single/multiplayer

I'm going to slip on my flamboyant fanboy hat for a second here and say that I adore the Max Payne series. Ever since the third installment was announced about 63 f*ckin' years ago, every morning has felt like a lie to me; those subsequent ...   read

Preview: Darksiders II is inspired by the best there is

Though I never brought myself to complete the first Darksiders, I did enjoy it for the length that I played. It was nothing phenomenal in its own right, but it was still a fun experience, due to retaining enough good inspiration from o...   read

Correction: 1C's Men of War and King's Bounty not F2P

A recent preview I wrote (published earlier this week) regarding 1C Company titles contained misinformation on two of the three games featured, Men of War: Condemned Heroes and King's Bounty: Warriors of the North. In this piece, it was ori...   read

Review: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680

For some of us, upgrading our PCs with the best hardware and enjoying the most jaw-dropping games in all their glory is a not-so-distant memory. Even though I've consistently owned beefy rigs my whole life, I've spent less and less time uti...   read

GDC: Conquering worlds for free in PlanetSide 2

First-person shooters lend themselves incredibly well to vast, open environments, so it's almost criminal that we don't have more games taking that to the level the original PlanetSide did. A normal session of gameplay involved me driving m...   read

Preview: Fighting an evil U.N. in End of Nations

I've never had much of a knack for strategy or warfare. I'm not relentlessly evil enough to be a dictator, and I'm not selfless and stalwart enough to be some sort of freedom fighter. So when the big WWIII hits, I'm probably going to be one...   read

Preview: Getting in deep with the Triads in Sleeping Dogs

I'm so glad this game has shaped into what it is now, because when I first heard that Sleeping Dogs was originally titled True Crime: Hong Kong, I thought to myself, "Damn it, hopefully this will be a short demo." Once I saw the game in act...   read
