Overwatch
When Overwatch's cast of heroes gets expanded past 21, it's likely that it'll be the right-most (and smallest) group on the character selection screen that has first dibs. That is if Blizzard's newest teaser is getting a...   read

Furi review

Review: Furi

  Watch Video I was immediately on board with Furi. I'll never tire of well-designed boss fights, and it sounded refreshing to have an entire game centered around intense, prolonged one-on-one battles without hired goons or skill upgrades ...   read

Overwatch cheaters
If you play Overwatch and you're not a cheater you've probably never heard of Watchover Tyrant, a paid program that allows players to see where all their enemies are and everyone's names and health, as well as tweak the ...   read

Miyamoto
Game Informer recently caught up with famed developer Shigeru Miyamoto, and asked him what the most underrated game on the Wii U was. His answer was somewhat predictable in Star Fox Zero, a passion project that he worked...   read

 
Hyrule Warriors
  Watch Video In just a couple of months, we'll be celebrating the two-year anniversary of Hyrule Warriors. Released in September 2014, it was the first of four games published by Nintendo that gave the flailing Wii U what little pulse it ...   read

SFV story mode review
I’m sure it’s difficult to write a compelling story mode for a fighting game. First, you start with a cast of disparate oddballs, karate-wizards and leggy Interpol agents, each with odd backstories that you have t...   read

SQUARE ENIX

Bespin DLC review
  Watch Video Star Wars Battlefront has earned a spot in my multiplayer rotation, but it's far from secure. I become reinvested every time free updates and paid expansions bolster the game, but I can only stay engaged with the relatively s...   read

8===D
As many know, I am an unapologetic supporter of the horror genre. It allows for us to all feel one overwhelming emotion together in unity, while also telling a complex or surreal story with hidden themes and deeper ...   read

Inside review

Review: Inside

  Watch Video Normally, it'd feel disingenuous to directly compare games during a review; this is a unique case where I think it may be impossible not to. Inside is developer Playdead's follow-up to the critically acclaimed Limbo, and it's a better version of that in almost every conceivable way.   read

2K
  Watch Video Just moments ago, after months of leading us around and jerking our chain, 2K Games has announced BioShock: The Collection. It will be released on September 13, 2016, on PC, PS4, and Xbox One for $59.99, and is said to includ...   read

 
Scorn
  Watch Video Scorn, a fleshy first-person horror adventure "set in a nightmarish universe of odd forms," popped up on Steam Greenlight today. You might not want to watch this teaser trailer in a crowded room. Elaborating on the gameplay s...   read

Super Mario RPG
Here's some news that's sweeter than a glass of Kerokero Cola or a handful of Rock Candy: Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars is coming to Wii U eShop tomorrow via Virtual Console. There's a lot of love for that g...   read

 
LEGO Star Wars
  Watch Video Controversial opinion incoming -- I didn't think The Force Awakens was the best Star Wars. I know, I know. Maybe it isn't as controversial to say as it was back in December, but anyone who sees it is seemingly contractua...   read

Final Fantasy VII
Square's marketing machine knows no bounds. If it's Final Fantasy related they'll try to brand something with it, as evidenced by the cavalcade of XV tie-ins, which is now approaching overload levels. Since Final Fa...   read

Nintendo
Nintendo had another doozy of a shareholder meeting last night, and talked about nearly every facet of their business, including the fabled NX. After not showing it at E3 they have in fact reconfirmed that it will launch in M...   read

 
Doom
Doom did what most people thought was impossible when it captured the essence of the 1993 game and adapted it to 2016 standards. It was an undertaking that seemed preordained to fall flat, but id Software did an incredib...   read

Rhythm Heaven Megamix

Star Ocean review
  Watch Video While Star Ocean: The Second Story was one of my favorite PS1 JRPGs, the rest of the series never grabbed me. It's not that it's bad in any way -- each entry is pretty consistent, actually -- it's just that every time I'...   read

Nintendo NX
The next Nintendo gaming platform, the NX, is supposed to release in March 2017. It's almost July, now, with E3 behind us. When are we going to hear anything substantive about the new system? Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto, spea...   read

The horror
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 th...   read
