Another serene look at Zelda: Breath of the Wild's Temple of Time

In terms of substance, there's admittedly not too much going on in this latest video for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. But Nintendo's audio folks have worked their magic again and, like the E3 2016 trailer that I still occasiona...   read

The Outcast remake is happening and it looks good

Efforts to revive the cherished sci-fi action-adventure game Outcast have taken longer than its creators and fans would have liked. There was a Kickstarter for an HD reboot, but funding just didn't come through. Now, years later, the projec...   read

Mafia III's city has a lot of districts, and they're all really stabby

"Ah yes, Pointe Verdun. The entire district runs on whisky and rage," this new Mafia III video matter-of-factly states. After watching the whole clip, the whisky part might be the only thing that makes Pointe Verdun stand out. Violenc...   read

Mafia III's Irish underboss looks badass, but he's certainly no anarchist

"An anarchist with no fear." That's how Mafia III's underboss Thomas Burke is described. Except everything that we know about Burke runs contrary to the definition of anarchy. Anarchists are people who don't believe in authority or order. ...   read

This Mafia III live action trailer ruins a perfectly good suit

Lincoln Clay doesn't really give a damn if you're a fashionista; he has no problem ruining your threads. A bullet hole and blood all over your snazzy white suit? There's no coming back from that. All the club soda in the world won't make a...   read

Mafia III protagonist's life has been anything but a cakewalk

We know that Mafia III's Lincoln Clay hasn't had it easy. He's a black man in the American south during the 1960s (a struggle that developer Hangar 13 hopes to do justice with its New Bordeaux setting). He's also a Vietnam veteran. Oh yeah...   read

These new Final Fantasy XV screens show it's all about brodowns and throwdowns

With little more than three months left before Final Fantasy XV releases, we've come to know what we should expect from it. Or, at least in the early-going. Things could (and very well might!) drastically change, but that starting stuf...   read

Watch Dogs 2 is on the right track

In my mind, Watch Dogs 2 has two things going for it over its predecessor: a not-dreadful protagonist (Marcus Holloway) and a sunnier, more dog-filled real-world setting (San Francisco). The rest of the changes are the sort of safe but stil...   read

When it comes to Mafia III, we have to talk about politics in games

Politics in video games has been at the epicenter of a fascinating movement and anti-movement over the past few years. A reductive but simple view of it is that some people want change and others don't. It can be uncomfortable because the i...   read

Xenoblade team is working on Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Forget the new "NX" hardware, Nintendo devoted just about all of its E3 to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (in order to hopefully sell the NX when it launches next March). And the huge, open-world game is taking all hands.  Mon...   read

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is going to be one hell of an adventure

When I first heard that Nintendo was planning to focus exclusively on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for its E3 2016 booth, I triple-checked the wording. Only hands-on with Zelda? Really? That can't possibly be right! But it was, a...   read

Ghost Recon Wildlands is underwhelming

Watch Dogs 2 looks alright, but do we really need a Watch Dogs film?
