Rodea: The Sky Soldier might be a bumpy ride

My first flight with Rodea: The Sky Soldier wasn't a smooth one. But perhaps that's to be expected of a title that's seen such a turbulent development history. The project went dark shortly after its initial announcement in 2010, ...

Skylanders Trap Team photo

The next Skylanders borrows a little from the Pokemon series

The developers at Toys For Bob are back in the saddle with Skylanders Trap Team, the next entry in their hit toys-meet-videogame franchise. This time the hook involves you capturing villains and enslaving brainwashing reforming them to wor...

Puyopuyo Tetris is exactly as it sounds, and I dig it

Sega is showing off its new puzzle game Puyopuyo Tetris here at their already super busy TGS 2013 booth. As a fan of both games, I gave this cross-up a spin on the 3DS. Puyopuyo Tetris is also coming to the Vita and PS3 as well as the Wii U...

 
 
Skylanders Swap Force photo

Skylanders Swap Force is surprisingly more fun than evil

Activision’s Skylanders franchise has always smelled of a money grab to me. Copperish, like the smell of old pennies scrounged up by hard-working parents so little Linda Anne can have all the newest and coolest Skylanders characters w...

The Lone Ranger rides into Disney Infinity

Prior to the E3 festivities, Disney demonstrated the upcoming cash grab Disney Infinity to a room teeming with journalists. The focus of the event was on two of the in-game worlds plus the oft-touted Toy Box mode. The first world, based on ...

Producer Ryozo Tsujimoto talks Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate

Saying that Capcom’s Monster Hunter series has a passionate and loyal following would be a massive understatement. For nearly 10 years, Monster Hunter has captivated gamers and inspired many imitators. After months of keeping western ...

Next Skylanders lets you swap parts to form new toys

The next Skylanders is the last thing fans were probably expecting as there's three major changes going on with Swap Force, the new entry in the series. For starters, it's not developer Toys for Bob making this one. Vicarious Visions, the t...

Preview: Unload your new toy chest with Disney Infinity

There's not a lot I remember about the rampant imagination of childhood, but most of the good memories came from the depths of my toy chest. Pitting Aliens against Transformers. Imagining Cloud Strife's sword slicing through Foxhound's r...

gamescom: Swarm is my favorite new Skylanders

Developer Toys for Bob showed off a few new characters for Skylanders Giants during gamescom this week. Amongst them was Swarm, a bee-like monster that's also one of the new oversized Giant characters. Look, bees and hornets are scary enoug...

gamescom: LEGO LotR has a nice Skyrim vibe going

LEGO Lord of the Rings is doing a number of things to really differentiate itself from prior LEGO titles. The biggest change is that this one provides a more seamless, open world design to the exploration, akin to that of Skyrim.

SDCC: Taking on Kirby's Dream Collection challenge mode

Kirby's Dream Collection is a bundle of some of the best Kirby games ever for the Wii in celebration of the 20th anniversary. Just the fact it contains Kirby's Super Star is enough for me, and the added bonus of the Kirby soundtrack CD is l...

E3: ZombiU multiplayer makes you lord of the dead

ZombiU's asymmetrical, competitive multiplayer is a nice little package. It will definitely be a dorm room favorite and a good time at parties. The general premise is that one player (in this case, my homeboy Pungi rocking the Wi...

E3: Game & Wario is neither Game & Watch nor WarioWare

Along with Project P-100, one of the biggest surprises at the Nintendo booth at E3 was Game & Wario. I would have definitely been less disappointed with Nintendo's on-site press conference if they had made some...

E3: Rayman Legends allows for asymmetrical dick moves

Asymmetrical gameplay is nothing new to Nintendo. Pac-Man Vs. allowed players to experience the series as the bad guy for the first time, while Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 gave the second player to assist the "main" player from a ...

E3: Hands-on with Rayman Legends

E3: Hands-on with ZombiU

Huh. That was my first reaction after playing ZombiU for the Wii U at Nintendo's booth during E3. Huh. Now, "huh" usually has a negative connotation, but that is not necessarily the case with this particular game. The "huh" is more a simpli...

E3: Hands-on with Project P-100

Project P-100 (working title) from Platinum Games (creators of Viewtiful Joe and MadWorld) was one of the strangest Wii U games I played on the show floor at E3. And that is not necessarily a bad thing. In a way, it reminded me of Elebits, ...

E3: Body slamming men in tights from space in Injustice

I never thought I'd want to play a DC superhero fighting game, but then again, I never thought I'd want to play another Mortal Kombat after the series' decline in the '00s. Once again, NetherRealm is changing my mind. Injustice: Gods Among ...

E3: Madden NFL 13 feels better because of physics

Another year, another Madden. We’ve probably reached a point in time where there are Madden fans who have forgotten than John Madden’s goofy mug used to adorn the games. As a big, stupid football fan, I’m always hoping Mad...

E3: Hands-on with Pikmin 3
