  Watch Video I hated Sub-Zero in Mortal Kombat X and dreaded his arrival in Injustice 2. His combination of clones and unrelenting pressure made him a nightmare to deal with in MKX. He was a sadist, a bully who would trap you in the corne...   read

Wait. Hear me out. Yes, the first few missions are terrible. Yes, the combat is weird. But once you get past those niggles, Alpha Protocol is one of the best modern RPGs, rivaling even Mass Effect. I'll explain why.   read

  Watch Video When Final Fantasy XII came out, I witnessed an interesting perspective in regards to initial praise -- the MMO crowd loved it, given that it takes multiple cues from the online-only Final Fantasy XI. It was a triumph in many...   read

  Watch Video Spider-Man films have been through all sorts of ups and downs. What was once the biggest comic book property on film has since been the victim of studio craziness, failed attempts, and just an overall bad reception by the tim...   read

  Watch Video Kirby is one of those series you can always count on Nintendo caring about. While it might take years, or decades for a new F-Zero to rise from the grave, there's going to be at least one Kirby game per year to help you wait. They're not all winners, though.   read

  Watch Video I've been playing with Red Hood off and on for the past few weeks since his release and he's... odd. I still can't figure him out. I can't tell if he's an amazing character, or a dud. I can't even tell if he's supposed to be played like a zoner, a rushdown monster, or something in-between. And that makes me pretty excited for the future of Injustice 2's DLC characters.   read
