Destiny opinion photo

The hardcore Destiny community forgets why we play

I've been playing a lot of Destiny lately -- late to the party, I know -- and going deep into the rabbit hole almost requires players to frequent r/DestinyTheGame or some other similar community site. Without it, I'd never know about a lot ...

What virtual reality world is Oculus' founder living in?

Oculus founder Palmer Luckey was back on reddit this week with a second question and answer session, this time on reddit's subforum "PC Master Race." There he plays to the crowd, saying, "I started out my life as a console gamer, but ascend...

Gaming needs more safe spaces

[Op-Ed Content Warning: Bigoted language, sexual violence] The definition of "safe spaces" varies depending on who you ask, but to me, a safe space is a place where you can be free of harassment regardless of your politics, race, natio...

Coleco announces new cartridge-based console

Are you old enough to remember the ColecoVision console from the '80s? Do you yearn for the days of old when games came on cartridges and everything had a nice physical manual? Do you often buy into new consoles announced with no hardware d...

Fallout 4 console players need cheats too

Earlier this week, Bethesda took a beloved glitch out for a midnight ride to a quiet parking lot, caved in the back of its skull with a bowling pin, and drowned it in a muddy puddle of rainwater and radiator fluid. I'm talking about the so-...

Does it matter if Link is a boy or a girl?

Linkle's debut as a playable character in Hyrule Warriors Legends seems to mean something big to a lot of people, but I guess that's par for course. Regardless of how long it's been since you actually played a Legend of Zelda game, chances ...

Fear and loathing in Halo 5: Guardians

"Fuck this stupid fucking Call of Duty bullshit. Get your shit together, Bungie...er...343, whoever!" This is how my first night with Halo 5 ends, in a fit of rage after a kill-less losing streak in the game's new tepidly received Brea...

Is Rise of the Tomb Raider the best Uncharted?

Both Crystal Dynamics and Microsoft lucked out that the tumult behind Uncharted 4: A Thief's End's development shift and scrapped work pushed Naughty Dog's adventure into 2016. It gives Microsoft the best exclusive holiday line-up for th...

 
 
Halloween games photo

What are you playing this Halloween season?

Halloween is my favorite holiday. Aside from being a great excuse to dress up like an idiot, party with friends, and drink terrible pumpkin-flavored booze (that any other time of the year you’d dump into the nearest gutter), it has th...

 
 
Snake Eater photo

Snake Eater is still the best Metal Gear game

Having played Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain for roughly 100 hours, I think I'm ready to make an assessment of it in terms of how it relates to the rest of the franchise. While it's definitely up there, it's far from my favorite ...

 
 
 
Episodic games photo

How long is too long to wait for updates on episodic games?

Episodic games can be a mixed bag. While there are many examples of some incredible successes, others fall by the wayside, partially due to the restrictions involved with the model. Take a look at Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect, which questi...

 
 
Konami photo

I used to love Konami

There aren't a lot of good things to say about Konami these days. Its missteps over the past few years have been frequent and severe, including: the embarrassingly poor Silent Hill HD Collection; the cancellation of Silent Hills; several fl...

Rude old PC ad suggests all men are casual console babies

Can you believe this 3Dfx ad from the 90s recently unearthed online by Felipe Pepe? In the era of "attitude" (or just 'tude), 3Dfx had the gall to suggest all men, the fairer sex not graced with breasts, are all casual console babies. "We o...

 
 
Metal Gear Solid V photo

What is your platform of choice for Metal Gear Solid V?

When Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain hits next month, it'll arrive on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One platforms all at once. I totally forgot it was being developed for last-gen consoles, and thought that was only for Ground ...

 
 
 
 
Rare Replay photo

What's your favorite game from Rare Replay?

I got my hands on Rare Replay, and I've been playing it quite a bit for our review next week. It's crazy how addicting Blast Corps is, as I just completed it earlier this year on my N64, and was enticed to beat it yet again. I was...

 
 
Super Mario Maker photo

Will you be buying Super Mario Maker?

I'm very interested in seeing how Super Mario Maker will turn out when it debuts on Wii U later this year. While there have been a lot of people vocally supporting the project, I see a lot of indifference towards it. In fact, if I wasn...

 
 
Virtual Boy photo

Did you ever own or play a Virtual Boy?

On July 21, 1995, 20 years ago today, the Virtual Boy was released in Japan. It was widely considered a failure in just about every respect, and Nintendo pulled sales seven months after it debuted in August of 1995 in the US. Personally, I ...

Mistakes were made with the Shenmue 3 Kickstarter

The Shenmue 3 Kickstarter has surpassed five million in funding with just under a day and a half to go, but creator Yu Suzuki has insisted that they need roughly $10 million to have a fully realized open world. It's shooting for t...

 
 
Online game talk photo

Do you go out of your way to help people in online games?

As a general rule, I play online games by myself if at all possible. In Final Fantasy XIV, the game I've been playing most lately due to the release of the recent Heavensward expansion, I politely declined most groups to tackle the mai...

What is your favorite 'patriotic' video game?

Over the years, we've seen a ton of games featured in America. Whether it's the days of old with Oregon Trail and Assassin's Creed III or a snapshot of modern consumerism with the American Gladiators on the SNES, it's not hard to ...
