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
  Watch Video Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius is now available worldwide on iOS and Android. The role-playing game is a collaboration between Square Enix and Japanese mobile game studio Gumi, whose popular smartphone title Brave Frontier&...   read

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
There are two kinds of people in this world: those who play Rhythm Heaven, and those who have little joy in their lives. If you find yourself in the first category, you know what you’re in for. You bought the game. You ...   read

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

 
DESTINY
The future of Destiny is unclear.  That was my big takeaway from a recent interview with Bungie's Scott Taylor, the executive producer behind the online first-person shooter's forthcoming expansion, Rise of Iron. "W...   read

[Promoted from our Community Blogs!] Whatever happened to the customer is always right? Now obviously if this were always taken literally every company would go out of business trying to satisfy every individual, but lately y...   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

The belles of the E3 ball
  Watch Video 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. Opinions are like assholes: I love 'em.   read

Umbrella Corps
  Watch Video It's a strange time to be a Resident Evil fan. The next iteration of the series was just announced at E3 and seems to be moving away from the action-heavy angle the last few games have taken (and I really liked the demo!). A ...   read

Nioh interview
It's been a long and winding road for Nioh. Koei unveiled the project a decade and a half ago -- four years prior to the company's 2008 merger with Tecmo, whose own Team Ninja (Dead or Alive, Ninja Gaiden) is now handling dev...   read

Heart & Slash
  Watch Video Over the years, I've backed very few Kickstarter projects. I'm cognizant of the risks involved, and for that reason, I'd rather not take a chance on anything from studios without a proven track record. But I have made a ...   read

Fallout 4
At this point, I'm all caught up with Fallout 4's Season Pass, which still has a few packs left to deliver. Let's take a look at what we've been provided so far: first it was Automatron, which was like a story pack lite. Then...   read
