Alright folks, let's have some Sunday fun. Googling your name plus 'the hedgehog' leads to some hilarious stuff. The majority of what you find will be on DeviantArt, such as that header by Shadicfan123 (shadic? Is that some unholy fuckombin...   read

The Silent Hill Retrospective: Downpour

“Lost the plot and for what?” sang Ed Harcourt on “Here Be Monsters,” one of Silent Hill: Downpour’s licensed tracks; a question easily applied to the acerbic state of the series in 2012. Looking back, Downpour...   read

Balrog's got punches like a truck, truck, truck

Well, this is surprising. I find myself playing Balrog a lot in Street Fighter V. I generally judge how well I'll perform by how efficient I can do their trials. I ended up doing terribly at Balrog's trials, but have had really good su...   read

Ibuki is no longer the character I fell in love with, but that's okay

Ibuki was one of the handful of characters I dabbled in while playing Street Fighter IV. The others were Hakan (my main), T. Hawk, Dan, Seth, and Makoto. Once I found out that Ibuki's neckbreaker slide was a lot like Hakan's belly slide, I ...   read

Two years later, we can objectively examine Randy Pitchford's unintelligible Battleborn tweet

Two years ago today, Randy Pitchford unleashed this gem unto the world. Last year, we celebrated its stilted beat poetry by writing our own Pitchford-esque prose. This year, we have the advantage of actually having played Battleborn, so we...   read

Street Fighter V's new story mode brings Sean back to Brown Town

It was only a few months ago that we saw Sean Matsuda, Ken Master’s wanna-be protege from Street Fighter 3, had lost his dark complexion and signature black dreadlocks in favor of a decidedly more Anglo appearance. His new red-brown h...   read

Musings of The Secret World noob Part 2: Raiding in the Plague Age

I love co-op in my video games, especially when it comes to close-knit survival. There’s something exciting about a group of strangers instinctively realising that, despite their differences, they need each other to survive. Left 4 De...   read

Suggested Price Warriors are vandalizing GeForce 1080 reviews

Have you seen Nvidia's stock? It was like $15 for the last five years and suddenly more than doubled. It's because they're making the worst video card ever. Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1080 is faster and more power efficient than their previous Ti...   read

The winners and losers of E3, according to me, Jed Whitaker

E3 2016 having come and gone feels like a distant memory at this point, but that won't stop me from making a list of who I thought the winners and losers of the show were. Somehow, I think some of you will disagree, and that is fine by me. ...   read

The soundtrack of my gaming life

I have a deep love of ritual. Like my caveman ancestors before me (who would rally around a stone obelisk, or a collection of goat skulls, and dance to the pounding beat of skin drums), I have my own profane customs. Nothing puts me more i...   read

Things video games need to learn from board games

Video games (single-player ones, at least) teach you that you are the best, you are the only one who matters, you will always get more powerful, that your hand will be held, that you don't need to actually care about other human beings. Boa...   read

Is this a lyric from ZZ Top's 'Burger Man,' or something said on an E3 stage?

For a rock band formed in Houston, Texas in 1969, ZZ Top is weird. But in the most straight-faced way that you might not catch if you don't stop and look, kind of like reading the headline "Man bites dog." Two front men with dark sunglasses...   read
