Blizzard suing Overwatch cheat maker for the loss of 'tens of millions of dollars in revenue'

If you play Overwatch and you're not a cheater you've probably never heard of Watchover Tyrant, a paid program that allows players to see where all their enemies are and everyone's names and health, as well as tweak the game's field of...   read

Miyamoto: Star Fox Zero is the most underrated Wii U game

Game Informer recently caught up with famed developer Shigeru Miyamoto, and asked him what the most underrated game on the Wii U was. His answer was somewhat predictable in Star Fox Zero, a passion project that he worked on for many ye...   read

Marin lets freedom ring in Hyrule Warriors

Review: Street Fighter V: A Shadow Falls

I’m sure it’s difficult to write a compelling story mode for a fighting game. First, you start with a cast of disparate oddballs, karate-wizards and leggy Interpol agents, each with odd backstories that you have to find a way to...   read

Review: Star Wars Battlefront: Bespin

The Problematic Translation of H.P Lovecraft

As many know, I am an unapologetic supporter of the horror genre. It allows for us to all feel one overwhelming emotion together in unity, while also telling a complex or surreal story with hidden themes and deeper messages. Perso...   read

Review: Inside

Normally, it'd feel disingenuous to directly compare games during a review; this is a unique case where I think it may be impossible not to. Inside is developer Playdead's follow-up to the critically acclaimed Limbo, and it's a better ...   read

Review: LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Nintendo: Wii U will 'continue to fight on,' even if only Zelda is planned for it

Nintendo had another doozy of a shareholder meeting last night, and talked about nearly every facet of their business, including the fabled NX. After not showing it at E3 they have in fact reconfirmed that it will launch in March 2017 this ...   read

Doom's next update has a neat feature that's a callback to the original game

Review: Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness
