Come out of all your closets at Haven Con 4

When I was growing up, to openly love video games was to be a nonconformist. There was no getting around that, and in a small cliquey town where social status determined much of your experience in life, being a nonconformist meant being avo...

Rooster Teeth may be best known for its productions on YouTube, the most famous being Red vs. Blue (which actually started before YouTube), but not a lot of people realize that they are making a big push to enter game publishing. Just last ...

Pyre is like a mystical version of NBA Jam and I love it

While I’ve known about Pyre for roughly a year now (having seen it twice at PAX East), I never got the chance to sit down and play the game. Since I’m a fan of Supergiant’s previous works, I just kind of figured it would b...

We went to Poland to figure out what Digital Dragons is

Quick, rhetorical show of hands: How many of you have heard of Digital Dragons? My assumption is that it's not many of you. That's because relative few consumers need to know about conventions like this. But, there's something happening her...

Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap is too damn cute

At trade shows, PR teams often try to get our attention by using phrases like "visceral" or "incredibly impressive graphics," and it all sorta blends together after awhile. Not so with Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap, a remake of Dragon's Cur...

MAGFest just gets bigger and bigger every year

From a 265-person show in 2002, MAGFest has blossomed into near uncontrollable levels. Last year the convention runners reported roughly 20,000 were in attendance, but this year, 25,000 registrants are expected to attend. That's a massive a...

Take a look at some of the best costumes from BlizzCon

Say what you like about Blizzard, but their fans are some of the most passionate gamers I've ever seen, particularly those who really get into cosplay. Last weekend was Blizzard's annual BlizzCon convention, and among other championships, t...

There won't be a remaster for the original Warcraft

I'm not one for needless remasters of titles that you can still buy. To me, they almost make me feel stupid for investing so much money and faith in a developer. The Uncharted remaster, especially, is just plain better than the originals, n...
