Portal in augmented reality looks super neat

Augmented reality has never been a perfect technology, but it definitely creates some fun scenarios. Pokémon Go is the biggest game to extensively feature the tech, but lots of modders and fans have created their own demos to showcas...   read

Breath of the Wild is getting two collector's editions in North America

Despite the popularity of the Zelda series, North America has never really gotten a collector's edition for any of the games. Wind Waker HD and Majora's Mask 3D did get small bonuses in the form of cheap figurines, but it looks like Nintend...   read

Review: King's Quest: Once Upon a Climb

Despite its lengthy release schedule (the first episode dropped last July!), King's Quest has wormed its way into my heart. Sure, the second chapter was a slight drop-off from the first, but it still managed to maintain the pace and most im...   read

Review: The Walking Dead: Michonne: What We Deserve

To say that Telltale's The Walking Dead: Michonne has been uneven would be an understatement. Although the lead performance was enough to draw me in the first time, the second episode dragged, and struggled to introduce any compelling ...   read

Review: Call of Duty: Black Ops III: Eclipse

Call of Duty continues to be a cultural phenomenon, but often with a negative connotation. It sells like hotcakes sure, but I have trouble tracking down people in my actual life that play those games. At this point, the series has star...   read

Review: Dark Souls III

It's safe to say that some people have been experiencing Souls fatigue. I mean, in the last two years, if you count a remake, there have been three retail Souls games (Dark Souls II, Scholar, and Bloodborne), on top of four DLC pa...   read

Review: The Walking Dead: Michonne: Give No Shelter

Telltale was never going to top the Walking Dead series proper with their three part Michonne series. It was always presented as a sort of tertiary tale, a gaiden that followed in the footsteps of the star, partially tied to the comic ...   read

Review: Lucky's Tale

Lucky's Tale was always going to be a tough sell. It's a bundled-in Oculus Rift launch game, which is often used as a tech demo for prospective buyers -- so to a lot of people, it probably looks like something that isn't a system seller. An...   read

Review: Oculus Rift

I will never forget my first experience with virtual reality. I was at a county fair as a child, and there was a large line for a "virtual NASCAR" racing game. I took one look at the helmet, and that's all I needed to see -- I wanted in. Of...   read

Review: Hyrule Warriors Legends

From its announcement to the conclusion of my multi-100-hour playthrough of Hyrule Warriors, I was enthralled. It was a match made in heaven, mashing up Zelda with Dynasty Warriors, and all of the parties involved deserve a ton of prai...   read

Review: Pokken Tournament

When I first heard of the existence of Pokkén Tournament, I wasn't completely sold. That is, until I actually played it in Japan. At that point, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it again. Having spent nearly two weeks with it on Wi...   read

Review: Senran Kagura Estival Versus

We've all heard the expression "sex sells." It's the idea that our brains are so hardwired toward carnal pleasures that we'll buy anything so long as there is a pretty face and a nice ass we can associate with it. But let's be honest, that'...   read

Review: Tom Clancy's The Division

When I embarked upon my journey with The Division, I saw potential. The map is well crafted, the sandbox gimmick is more justified than a lot of other similar games, and playing with friends is fun. But after squaring off against a number o...   read

PC Port Report: Tom Clancy's The Division

It took me a long time to get excited for The Division. After the naff faux-voice chat in the E3 reveal and the heavily hand-held demo I played at EGX, it wasn’t until I played the beta only a few weeks ago that I considered it might ...   read

Review: Blood Alloy: Reborn

I've never done meth, but I've watched enough of the hit American show Cops to know what it looks like when someone is under its influence; frantic movements, confusion, and swatting at non-existent bees. That is pretty much what Blood Allo...   read

Review: Stardew Valley

Please, send help. I can't stop playing Stardew Valley. In fact, it's running in the background right now. Which reminds me, I need to catch an Albacore real quick for Elliot... All right, so, Stardew Valley. Wait, I need to cook Willie som...   read

Review: The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD

My relationship with Twilight Princess is one of the most complicated I've come across in my entire gaming career. I completed it within a week of its launch on the Wii, and was left underwhelmed. It wasn't necessarily the waggle contr...   read

Review: Superhot

Without thinking, I chucked a cue ball at the bartender, ran up and grabbed the shotgun as it flew out of his hands, and shot him point blank. I then watched as his fragile frame crumpled to the floor and shattered like glass. A bullet flew...   read

Review: The Flame in the Flood

Day 22. I've been drifting down this river for weeks now, and I'm starting to get desperate. That damn boar broke my arm, and I haven't been able to scrounge up the supplies to make a proper splint. Since I couldn't kill the boar, I have no...   read

Nintendo, do what you're doing for Pokemon's 20th anniversary with other franchises

Hey guys, did you know it's the 30th anniversary of both The Legend of Zelda and Metroid this year? Neither did Nintendo! It's too busy celebrating Pokémon's 20th anniversary, which has already gotten more fanfare than any other cele...   read

Review: The Walking Dead: Michonne: In Too Deep

Telltale struck gold back in 2012 with The Walking Dead. It already had the well-crafted Sam & Max revival under its belt along with the stellar Puzzle Agent, but beyond that, it hadn't really delivered a breakout hit. Once Lee and Clem...   read
