The best theme song in video game history comes from an unlikely place

Before Sony used "Take Me Out" in that great, futile PSP campaign, Franz Ferdinand's 2004 hit showed up in EA's NFL football game, Madden. For the last 15 years or so, the series' soundtracks have been filled with licensed music, an eclecti...   read

What's eating Adam Jensen?

On paper, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided's Adam Jensen seems like the ultimate video game protagonist. He has the voice of a dedicated smoker, all gravelly tones and foggy inflections. His chin is so pointed that it might be more deadly than the ...   read

Juri is the most complex character on the Street Fighter V roster

10 things the Nintendo NX probably won't be

In March of last year, the same day Nintendo announced it would enter the mobile market in a partnership with DeNA, the company said it was working on a new "dedicated games platform with a brand new concept." More than a year later, that's...   read

Time's '50 best video games of all time' list has broken me

Time Magazine is a tabloid, clickbait before internet teens learned to sling the word at anything that didn't mesh with their ideology, but because it has a veneer of respectability owed to its near 100-year run, it continues to make bolder...   read

Permadeath in Fallout 4's Survival mode broke me

I've played a lot of Fallout 4. Too much if I'm being honest. Like a ratty old sweater, it's kind of comfortable in its familiarity, even if I know I should really just toss it out. But, for all the hours I've played, the multiple character...   read

What if video game consoles were WWE wrestlers?

The last time I grafted the history of the video game industry to pop culture, it went over much better than I expected; nobody executed me in the streets during E3 and I also wasn't fired! So for my follow-up, I decided to go with consoles...   read

A desperate plea to Telltale: Please make a game out of R. Kelly's 'Trapped in the Closet'

Super Smash Con grew quite a bit this year
