Popular video and game rental chain Blockbuster has been dead since around 2011 when it filed for bankruptcy, which makes the discovery of this fully intact store in South Texas all the more mesmerizing.  Watch as this brave person ex...   read

Review: Destiny: Rise of Iron

In the several days since Destiny: Rise of Iron launched, I've basically been doing nothing but play it. While it's meant to last casual players weeks on end, my raid group and I chewed through, and although we still have some SIVA Clu...   read

Review: Rive

It's weird for me to say I'm reviewing the final game from a developer. Two Tribes wasn't sold, nor is it shutting down. After 16 years and a changing industry it just can't keep up with, the team is just going to stop. Rive is supposedly t...   read

Review: Forza Horizon 3

You and me, Carter! We're racing for slips! And not the "now I own your car" kind of slips, but pink slips. The loser's fired and has to go work in some other corner of the industry! Wait, what? We can both review Forza Horizon 3? Oh, that ...   read

Review: Dear Esther

As I finished Dear Esther, I felt nothing. There was no sense of revelation or tinge of intrigue. I wasn't sad nor happy nor content. I felt no emotion at all. I wasn't moved in the least, which is ironic given all that walking. This is pro...   read

Review: Batman: A Telltale Games Series: Children of Arkham

I've been reading a lot of Batman lately. No, not necessarily the stories where he's just kicking ass and taking names with all those wonderful toys -- tales where he's vulnerable, or where Bruce isn't even the star. Where, Phantom&nbs...   read

All first-party Microsoft games will run at native 4K on the Scorpio

I'm kind of getting tired of hearing about 4K resolution, but it looks like the Xbox Scorpio will be rendering games natively in the new format. Shannon Loftis, publishing manager for Microsoft Studios, mentioned to USA Today, "any games we...   read

So there's this little game out. I believe it's called Heroes of the Storm, maybe you've heard of it? Apparently it is in fact a game, and it's free to play! Now there are characters and skins you can buy though, which brings me to the poin...   read

Resident Evil 7 Lantern demo: You really should play in VR

While not very scary, Resident Evil 7 is a demonstration on how virtual reality can work in full-length AAA games. The game is clearly made with VR in mind, and it works stunningly well, but in my first experience with VR I was more im...   read

Review: Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse

You could say I like Shin Megami Tensei. I mean, the original name (Megami Tensei), essentially translates to "Rebirth of the Goddess," so you know there's going to be religious undertones afoot. A story framed around the battle o...   read

The Witness is a very different game when the curiosity is gone

I am something of a Witness scholar. Back in January, I spent weeks pushing myself to my brain's limit in order to learn all of the island's secrets by the time the review embargo lifted. I'm proud to say I accomplished that (and with no gu...   read

Review: World of Warcraft: Legion

Review: Dead Rising 2: Off the Record

Ahh, the familiar loop of Dead Rising: leaving the safehouse, fretting about the finite time you have to rescue bizarre civilians, panicking when their braindead AI leads to them being eaten by actual braindead zombies, and picking yourself...   read

Review: Dead Rising 2

I didn't always like the Dead Rising series. Far from it, actually. My dour experience with the original wasn't exactly out of the ordinary given its rough edges. I liked the concept, particularly back in 2006, of an open-world zombie game...   read

Review: Dead Rising

Dead Rising did the impossible when it was released in 2006, at least in my circles -- it ushered non-believers into the open-world format. In an era before zombies were in every other game or television show, Capcom returned to t...   read
