What did you think of the Titanfall 2 beta?

Last night, the first open beta for Titanfall 2 (on consoles at least) concluded. I was actually kind of sad because I had just started enjoying myself, particularly with a few major design shifts and improvements that were made on the...   read

Are you doing the Destiny Year Two Moments of Triumph?

This week, I finally completed the Year Two Moments of Triumph for Destiny. For those of you who don't play, they're basically special achievements that you have a limited time to complete -- usually, before a new expansion comes out and ma...   read

What's your most-played Steam game?

While I'd love to offer you my hours-count in Pokemon Some Such Color or Final Fantasy Some Such Roman Numeral, that would require much too much digging through boxes. Beyond that, plenty of games like Super Smash Bros. or Street Fighter II...   read

Did you grow up renting video games?

People often asked me how I played hundreds of games growing up, the answer is simple -- rentals. Well, that, and the fact that my best friend's dad and my uncle were both big PC gamers with massive LAN setups, and an endless library of gam...   read

What's the sickest alien you've seen in No Man's Sky?

No Man's Sky features a full universe with infinity +1 planets, most of which seem to be hospitable to some kind of plant and wildlife. A lot of times these creatures look the same, a randomly generated amalgamation of limbs and swim bladde...   read

Are you looking forward to Gears of War 4?

I haven't really seen any major buzz (at least in the community itself) regarding Gears of War 4. I remember there being some excitement towards the initial reveal and the enhanced focus on horror, but not much since. This footage of the ma...   read

If Nintendo won't celebrate Metroid's 30th anniversary, we will

There is a part of me that can't believe the original Metroid came out 30 years ago today. 30 years of exploration, epic boss battles, haunting music... and not a blip of acknowledgement from Nintendo. No special website, no anniversar...   read

What level are you in Pokemon Go?

Currently, I'm level 20 in Pokémon Go having spent no cash. I expect to be blown away by a lot of you out there, but I blame some of my lack of progress on the woeful Pokémon Trainer Club connections I've been getting for...   read

Here are the stages you picked for Splatoon's last Splatfest

Hark, the end of Splatoon is nigh. Well, the end of new content at least. As previously announced, the last ever Splatfest is going to be Callie versus Marie, in a Squid Sister battle to the death. That's going down tomorrow, July 22, ...   read

Have you seen anyone play Pokemon Go?

[Update: I found a ton of people today. From what I can gather talking to fellow trainers, a lot of the initial lull was because of server issues and the fact that they didn't know it was out yet. But this Sunday was the perfect storm -- pe...   read

If Donkey Kong were a real gorilla, he might be dead

A quick Google search suggests the average lifespan for a gorilla is in the neighborhood of 35 years. As it turns out, Donkey Kong, Nintendo's premier primate, turns 35 today. Were a real ape, DK probably wouldn't have many more years ahead...   read

Do you have a favorite 'boss fight only' game?

Having played through part of Furi recently (it's fun!), it really got me thinking -- how many games basically only feature boss fights? I'm not talking about ones that have the old school "boss rush" side mode that you can unlock afte...   read

How high is Super Mario RPG on your personal all-time ranking list?

So, Super Mario RPG was re-released on Wii U yesterday, and I feel like I have to talk about it. As a kid, I had no idea what I was getting into at first. As a seemingly innocuous Mario game developed by Squaresoft, even the intro...   read

What's your game of the year so far?

I've been thinking about Inside a lot lately. That's bound to happen when you spend a ton of time writing both a review and a detailed secrets guide. The more I think about it, the more I think that it might be a serious contender for ...   read

How do you feel about the Zero Escape series?

Now that it has three games under its belt (999, Virtue's Last Reward, Zero Time Dilemma), the Zero Escape series is kind of a big deal at this point. Okay, maybe it isn't selling gangbusters on say, Layton-levels, but after nearly sev...   read

Eiji Aonuma wants more multiplayer for Zelda, but do you?

Multiplayer gameplay doesn't mix often with the Zelda series, but when it does, it usually puts forth enough panache to be worth it. Take Four Swords, one of my favorite Zelda games ever (especially the Anniversary Edition) -- it takes such...   read

Does Fallout 4 have the worst Season Pass in recent memory?

At this point, I'm all caught up with Fallout 4's Season Pass, which still has a few packs left to deliver. Let's take a look at what we've been provided so far: first it was Automatron, which was like a story pack lite. Then Wasteland Work...   read

Are you picking up Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse?

At first it was hard to make sense out of Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse (known in Japan as "Final"). Initially I thought it was just an expansion of sorts for IV, but as it turns out, it's a brand new game. Now you'll be playing as more...   read

Is the new Destiny expansion enough to bring you back?

Destiny: Rise of Iron is confirmed, and it's $30 on PS4 and Xbox One (sorry last-gen). And given how many copies the game sold, there's a lot of people out there who have Destiny discs spinning in their consoles as we speak, as we...   read

Is XSEED the best localizer around?

As someone who has been importing since a young age, I've been thinking a lot about localizations lately. Between Deep Silver putting out the "unforgivable" pizza commercial for Mighty No. 9, NIS being upfront about changes to Criminal Girl...   read

What does Watch Dogs 2 need to do differently?

Watch Dogs gets a bad rap. It's a game everyone seems to have an opinion about whether they've played it or not. Part of that stems from the disparity between how it looked in pre-release showings with what we ultimately got at launch. Part...   read

Did the Mighty No. 9 pizza commercial deter you from checking it out?

Seeing a Japanese Mighty No. 9 dev trash a commercial from his western publisher as "unforgivable" had me in stitches for a while. That specific choice of words is pretty amazing, and not something you see every day. Most people are ta...   read

Which platform are you playing Overwatch on?

Overwatch is finally out, and it's pretty good! Amazingly, the team over at Blizzard manages to make it 60 FPS on consoles, so if you aren't already heavily invested in their other games and are comfortable with a controller, it isn't ...   read

How great would a PlayStation VR Jumping Flash be?

Everyone has at least one classic series that they hold water for, even if there's no chance of getting another entry. For some, that's Metroid (ha! Kidding. Or am I?), for me, it's Jumping Flash. Years before Mirror's Edge would ...   read

Do you still care about Call of Duty?
