Rock Band 4
Most every video game goes through some degree of turmoil en route to becoming a finished product. Creative changes, financial woes, conflict with the publisher -- these are all examples of common issues that might cause stra...   read

 
One quick tip
The internet sleuths over at Reddit have found, fairly convincingly, a way to guarantee your preferred Eevee evolution (or "Eeveelution," if you want to get cute about it). There is one obvious drawback and that is taking a h...   read

 
Mini NES
Nintendo is cashing in on nostalgia this November with a cute miniature NES that plays 30 games. The company has since clarified what the $60 system can and can't do, and it's about what you'd expect. The NES Classic Edition ...   read

 
Pokemon Go
Pokémon Go has gotten me to explore just-around-the-corner places I'd never otherwise think to check out, and for that, I am thankful. But depending on where you live, you might not be so fortunate with Niantic's prede...   read

 
Nintendo
You know all of those knock-off NES replicas you've seen at random stores like Walmart for the last 10 years? Well they're oddly going to have some official competition this holiday season. Ninendo has announced today that it...   read

Energy Hook review
  Watch Video "No combat. No story. Nothing else like it." The trailer for Energy Hook, a high-flying new extreme sports game from the guy behind the beloved web-swinging mechanic in Spider-Man 2, does not lie. I've always been fond of gam...   read

Overwatch
We all knew a support was coming to Overwatch, but I didn't expect Pharah's mom, and I especially didn't expect her to be in playable state on the PTR today. Yes, if you're so inclined, you can boot up your Battle.net client right now and try Ana out -- I suggest you do so, because she's a blast to play.   read

Call of Duty review
The last time we checked in with Black Ops III's DLC, Treyarch started to slouch a bit. Eclipse was a great add-on all things considered, but it didn't shine in comparison to Awakening, which had some of the brighter maps in the entire series. Descent, the third part of the Season Pass, is an even steeper decline.   read

Necropolis review

Review: Necropolis

  Watch Video The "friends" argument in the critical side of gaming is an amusing one to partake in. "Aren't all games inherently better with friends?" people say. Well, no. There are of course varying degrees of success in which a game im...   read

Review: FRU

  Watch Video I remember being excited about the original Kinect launching for the Xbox 360, back when I worked in retail. Our store even had a midnight opening for it, which was a rarity in those days. Since then, I've played a majority o...   read

Monster Hunter Gen Review
  Watch Video It occurred to me while writing this review that Monster Hunter is my Dark Souls. Yes yes, Monster Hunter predates the Souls games by quite some time, but that doesn't change the accuracy of the statement itsel...   read

7 Days to Die review
  Watch Video For better or worse, I didn't know what I was getting into with 7 Days to Die. I had heard that name before, and I was aware that it was a popular sandbox zombie survival game on Steam Early Access, but that's it. Prior to ne...   read

Pokemon Go robbery
Pokemon Go is a security risk in more ways than one. In O’Fallon, Missouri, some enterprising stick up men have used the game's real world location-based hook to lie in wait and commit a series of armed robberies. "Abou...   read

 
JJBA: Eyes of Heaven
  Watch Video I've always thought that the world needed a definitive JoJo's Bizarre Adventure game. The franchise tends to resist easy adaptation, and despite there being no shortage of attempts to bring it to the world of video games, it ...   read

Street Fighter
It doesn't look like the majority of fans consider Street Fighter V to be a high point for the series. That's sad. The good news is, Udon's current run of Street Fighter comics is arguably the best they've yet produced in the...   read

Pokemon Go
Pokemon came out when I was in elementary school, and man did it take off. The first pair of games were released in the US in 1998, and the card game was introduced in 1999. Somewhere in-between that, a social pheno...   read

Pokemon Go
  Watch Video [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 perf...   read

 
Battlefield 1
  Watch Video When I think of my time with EA DICE's Battlefield series, two thoughts reach out and smack me right in the face: 1) going to LAN cafes and playing Battlefield: Bad Company 2 with buddies and having a great time, and 2) ...   read

Valkyrie Drive

Two years of Pitchford
  Watch Video Two years ago today, Randy Pitchford unleashed this gem unto the world. Last year, we celebrated its stilted beat poetry by writing our own Pitchford-esque prose. This year, we have the advantage of actually having played Battleborn, so we can examine it closely to see just how accurate the original assessment was. Battleborn is...   read

Song of the Deep review
