Whenever the Vita's library expands, I always get unreasonably excited. Double excited if there's a new IP to add to the fold, because I'm seeing a lot of sequels these days. That's why I was ecstatic to hear that Toybox Game...   read

Rock Band 4
Looking forward to Rock Band 4 just as much as I am? You're probably wondering how the upcoming roster is going to look. Me too. In fact, I'm pretty concerned. I dropped a pretty penny on hundreds of songs, with 70% of them i...   read

Surrealism
When it comes to crafting videogames out of the norm, there’s one question developers should ask themselves: What are we afraid of? Games are the perfect medium for exploration of bizarre, unnatural worlds, and yet it s...   read

Bombshell
  Watch Video Last May I broke the news about 3D Realms' upcoming Bombshell, and the typical '90s-esque trailer was decidedly light on gameplay but generous with clichéd teaser elements. Now there's a proper trailer out to dissect ...   read

Y2K preview
  Watch Video Y2K began with protagonist Alex Eggleston returning to his his hometown from college. I watched him gaze out of bus windows until the scene shifted to him sharing a seat with a man in a panda costume. This was jarring enough to give Alex reason to look completely shaken and offended, and as the jaunty soundtrack suggested, should have felt super quirky and weird. It didn't.   read

PoPoLoCrois Farm Story
Okay, I know no one cares that much about farm sims or things like that these days unless they're teeming with in-app purchases. Or PoPoLoCrois, for that matter. But for some reason, I really like both. I also really like the...   read

Saints Row IV: Re-Elected
  Watch Video Saints Row IV is absolutely crazy. It is, without a doubt, one of the most off-the-wall sandbox experiences you can have on a console or otherwise. It's an excellent cooperative adventure as well, and it delivers the franchis...   read

Citizens of Earth review
  Watch Video The Fifth Element came on TV the other day, and it really got me thinking about mise-en-scène versus characterization. It’s one of my absolute favorite movies, and is an exemplar of sci-fi in cinema without being...   read

Mean Girls: The Game
I took a look at the official Princess Bride mobile game the other day and it was garbage. Granted, I don't like that movie, but I know plenty of people who do. It was a terrible, uninspired amalgam of boring minigames that h...   read

Brittany's GOTY picks
I'm not entirely sure what year it is. Is it 2015? That's what I keep hearing around the internet. I'm pretty sure it's still 2014, at least for a few more days though. Who can be sure in tumultuous times like these? Anyway, ...   read
