Rip and tear (pin)balls in Bethesda Pinball next month

Zen Studios had runaway success with its Zen Pinball series. While the first game wasn't too widespread, Zen Pinball 2 has been ported to more devices than I can count. It even has a Wii U port, which is basically just for show with most de...   read

Mass Effect 2 and 3 are now backward compatible

N7 day is a pretty big deal, despite me not hearing a damn thing about it. I guess fans are really crazy for Mass Effect; I liked the first two games (especially the second), but I checked out when EA went crazy with Origin and making its g...   read

Bastion's coming to Xbox One, but it's more than just backward compatibility

Blue Dragon is finally on Xbox One via backward compatibility

I wasn't a fan of Blue Dragon when I tried the demo years ago. Maybe it was the map they chose or how overpowered you were, but I didn't get on with the game. Lots of people did and have been asking for a remaster or for the original to lan...   read

Get your RAGE on Xbox One!

One of the weirder promotional tie-ins can be found in id Software's RAGE from 2011. For some reason, Blake Griffin (from the LA Clippers) campaigned to be featured in the title and wound up getting a bobble head in the game. I hadn't heard...   read

Review: King's Quest: The Good Knight

King's Quest has had a good run over the course of its five-episode spread. As an overlooked adventure series from the minds of developer The Odd Gentlemen, I think part of the reason it's been off so many radars is because the first c...   read

Review in Progress: WWE 2K17

Review: King's Quest: Snow Place Like Home

I think the King's Quest series is going to sneak up on people by the end of the year when it's included in several low-key "best of" lists. It doesn't elicit the same kind of hype as a Telltale game, especially when it comes to Batman, but...   read
