It's time to pray for Chibi-Robo

[This piece was originally published in 2015. In light of recent rumors about the next Nintendo Direct and an ensuing eyebrow-raising tweet from Nintendo of America today, it just felt right to revive it. -Jordan] Chibi-Robo is a refugee fr...


Kevin Mersereau's Top Five Games of 2017

It’s officially the year 2018 and not a whole lot has changed so far. I’m still a bald, broke, and excessively sweaty college student with an unhealthy obsession for video games. Luckily, that means I actually took the time to p...


Peter Glagowski's personal picks for GOTY 2017

2017 may be over, but it won’t be forgotten. While 2016 had a collection of some decent enough titles, everyone brought out their A game this year. While I’m still not quite sure whether these games are as important as years pas...

Christmas games that aren't Christmas games

Quite shamefully, I only saw Die Hard for the first time two years ago, in December and in a packed movie theatre. It was only then that I could fully appreciate the classic argument that rages about the film. No, not whether Hans Gruber is...


Persona might have the formula for the perfect X-Men game

X-Men has been one of Marvel's biggest properties for a long time, and not just in comic books. Before the days of the MCU, Marvel actually seemed to enjoy putting X-Men on a pedestal. The mutant team had a character almost everyone could r...


Opinion: Vivendi needs to stop

Before I get started on my long-winded tangent down below, let me go over the basic events that inspired it. Vivendi is currently trying to decide if a Ubisoft takeover is even worth it. I've always assumed, like most sane individuals, that...


Falling in and out of love with E3

Let's take a few minutes to talk about the most horrible thing that's happened to anyone ever. Like, ever-ever. A snail bit my uncle's wiener off, and even that wasn't as horrible as the worst thing that's ever happened to me. But before I ...


My one big worry for Destiny 2 after watching the reveal

The Destiny 2 gameplay reveal hit last week, and for the most part I'm pretty high on it. The stronger integration of clans into the game sounds very cool. The fact that it will facilitate mostly solo players getting to play its endgame con...


Breath of the Wild is both a masterpiece and a disaster

[Header courtesy of EternaLegend] Basically everyone and their mother agrees that Breath of the Wild is an incredible game. At the same time, everyone and their mother hates Breath of the Wild. How is that possible? This is something I&rsqu...


Palmer Luckey did not start with nothing

There are two Palmer Luckeys. I went back to read profiles of the now-24-year-old $700 millionaire who founded Oculus and became otherwordly-wealthy after reneging on keeping his company independent when Facebook came knocking with $2 billi...

What's your Dark Souls strategy?

I like to run a lot of funky builds in the Dark Souls games. Big guys swinging around huge two-handed clubs and hammers are a favorite. But so are svelte, nimble little assassins with a buckler for parrying and a nasty little spike of a dag...

Are you spoiling Dark Souls III for yourself?

The last few days have been agony for me. After it got out that it was possible to download the Japanese version of Dark Souls III with English subtitles and menus, seemingly every YouTuber and streamer in the world has made it their missio...

Oculus has bungled the launch of the Rift

[Update: Oculus sent out an update today clarifying what is going on and confirming the delay has been caused by an unexpected component shortage. Oculus is also footing the bill for shipping. "We know you're anxious to receive your Oculus ...

Bad choices don't make you a bad person

[This article contains spoilers for Firewatch] Let me preface this admission of guilt with a disclaimer: cheating on a romantic partner is the worst. If the relationship continues, you or your partner will never look at each other quite the...

Games Gearbox needs to learn from for Borderlands 3

Here we are, more than three years removed from the launch of the most recent Gearbox-developed Borderlands game, Borderlands 2. Right now the studio is focused on the hobby-grade, meta-growth Battleborn, but after that releases in a few mo...

What's so great about Undertale and The Witness?

In the last few months, two games were released that I feel might be among my favorite games of all time, Undertale and The Witness. But what exactly makes them two of the greatest gaming experiences I've had in recent memory? Well, it...
