In 2019, Sony should resolve to embrace cross-platform play

Nintendo may have been the company to end 2018 with a Smashing bang, but last year really belonged to Sony. The PlayStation 4 has given the company its turn-of-the-Millennium confidence back, as has a steady stream of critically acclaimed a...

Chris Carter's personal picks for Game of the Year 2018

This was a weird year. I think I played the same amount of games I usually do (around 200) but I didn't necessarily have the time for as many long-form experiences as usual due to the appearance of our first kid. Still, a lot of games came ...

Mike sounds off on his top gaming moments of 2018

2018 was a busy year for me. I managed to hold on to full-time employment, moved twice, and became more fully invested in my Gundam model kit hobby. As a result, my free time, as well as my free cash, was a lot more restricted than it was i...

These are the best new video game characters from 2018

In a few days, the hellish anal fissure that is 2018 will be over and the almost guaranteed shit-stained nightmare that is 2019 will begin. For gaming, 2019 is exploding right out of the gate as some of the most anticipated games of this ge...

Hovermale's best games of 2018 from 2017

This year was a good yet weird period of gaming for me, for many reasons. The weirdest one is that I’ve tightened my personal gaming budget so much that I’ve barely played any of this year’s brand new games, including seve...

Celebrating 20 years of Suikoden II, the best game ever made

I'll never love a game more than Suikoden II, and I'm okay with that. It's twenty years old now—a wisened, elder statesman of the console role-playing cannon. But even two decades after its initial release, Suikoden II still feels fre...

Video games I forgot released in 2018, ranked

Here's a funny thing about covering games: you either play a lot of them or you don't play enough of them and either way, everything blurs together. Every week, dozens -- if not hundreds -- of new games come out. Most of them aren't anythin...

Watch as I open over $100 worth of Artifact booster packs

I had some disposable income, and I haven't been excited to open card packs in quite a while, so I figured now is the time. I've mentioned this in my Artifact review, but I'm just a big fan of collecting cards and watching the market ...

I'm happy John Lasseter is leaving Disney

I've always had very conflicting feelings about Disney's former Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter. This was even before the frequent sexual harassment claims, which led him to take a six-month sabbatical last year before announcing ...

A chat with Sega's first lady of RPGs, Rieko Kodama

In an industry that does basically nothing to preserve the past, Sega has been an outlier. On basically any platform imaginable, you can obtain a decent chunk of Sega's first-party output from the Genesis and a few select games from other p...

What games do you play when you're sick?

We’re in full-on germ season right now, with temperatures dropping below zero. All the tea and soup in the world can’t stop the IT guy at work from coughing all over your keyboard, so one bout of illness is almost inevitabl...

Pokemon's single-player battles are aging poorly

I’ve grown increasingly exhausted of Pokémon with each generation, despite feeling the games are improving overall. From Gold through Pearl, I had unyielding optimism to "catch ‘em all" and excessively grind my team up fo...
