The daring Nintendo robbery, Dark Souls II may or may not be for babies, The War Z guys are jerks that you should not give money to, and Forbes discovers the most amazing Kickstarter game to date.
We've scooped the competition! Months before anyone else will deliver their verdict, we rate BioShock Infinite in a review based entirely upon the game's cover!
PlanetSide 2 launches, Wii U games get reviewed, and PC gamers who don't use gamepads for third person action games are bad, dumb people.
VGA has been pretty uneven, so instead of mangling one idea in each installment we're going to cover several of the week's biggest news stories and screw them all up in unique ways.
Use the screen to lovingly examine the scalp of every athlete on your team. Tap to increase the zoom level as you pick through each hair follicle. Eat any ticks and grubs that you come across. Now your team is ready for the big game!
Suppose the game had been approached with no regard for the original, every decision reached by appealing to the broadest audience possible. What would that have looked like?
If it's inevitable that comparisons will be made between Torchlight II and the Diablo series once again, I might as well give it a shot: This is what Diablo 3 could have been if Blizzard had focused on fun just a little bit more.
Strutting into the cozy shop, the hero flashed an insincere smile and sighed. He shook his head while surveying the shelves that had been meticulously stocked. Gingerly plucking one item up with two fingers as if it was a poison-covered bugbear turd, he turned to the shopkeeper.
The best part of Pizza 3000 is that it almost tastes like pizza and can be concealed under pretty much any hat when folded.
Guild Wars 2 is almost here, and from what I've been able to play it seems like something special. The game feels very different, not only compared to the original Guild Wars, but in relation to pretty much every MMO out there. What sets it apart?
When butterflies in Skyrim can pass the Turing Test, I will be happy. I guess this might be more involved than a normal mod so you should probably have experience with html.
Big Guy Mushroom - Makes you a big guy. Being bigger makes you more of a target. Avoid this power-up at all costs.
Day Z is a heck of a thing. With a unique emphasis on survival and the specter of permadeath constantly hanging over your head, a few minutes with this ARMA 2 mod can be more memorable than the entirety of a modern explosion-filled FPS campaign.
As The Old Republic condenses its servers and considers moving toward a free-to-play model, I am going to humbly suggest two changes that would turn the entire game around. There would still be lots of little issues, of course, but these two things would get me to come back to the game for many months to come.
Being told to "Move!" or "Run!" or "Hurry!" down a narrow path which must not be veered from. While all sorts of things happen around you. Things that look like they would be really fun to interact with, if you weren't so busy running and being yelled at.
Sephiroth comes from a machine mom. His mother is so dimly lit and full of rusty pipes that it makes him super sad. This, as far as I can tell, is the extent of his character.
In which I recall the entire story of the Diablo series for your benefit, completely by memory. This will go well.
Sometimes you come to a chapter break in a book or a movie's end credits and you blink, remembering your surroundings. It's very rare for me to lose myself in a video game in such a way. It happened with Grim Fandango, Psychonauts, Portal, the Half-Life games, and now The Walking Dead.
We tend to get caught up with flavor of the month bad guys. Nazis. Zombies. Robots. Non-white people in deserts. From the very beginning, though, the unassuming skeleton man has been there for us.
There is a fine line between enemies that present a challenge and those that are simply annoying. Actually, that's a lie. The line is pretty wide. Think about the gap between our fantasies when we first heard about motion controls and the horrible reality that came to pass. It's that wide.
While Giant Bomb's editors seem pretty optimistic their acquisition by CBSi, there are still a lot of doubtful people out there. For those fans, what follows is the worst case scenario.
Now we know that the inevitable Assassin's Creed III will be set in America during the Revolutionary War. I'll be there on day one with everyone else, but in the meantime how about some predictions?
Aside from some nice hardware and a software lineup that dutifully checks all the boxes in the portable PlayStation launch checklist, the pricey unit isn't exactly turning heads. So why would someone buy a Vita?
Somewhere in the core of Mass Effect is the promise of a nuanced adventure in a detailed sci-fi universe. Unfortunately, that promise has largely been swept aside in codex entries and overheard NPC conversations as the series tightens its desperate embrace of big, dumb action movie conventions.
Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning makes one hell of a weird first impression. If it was a dude introducing himself at a party, he would be wearing a silk dragon shirt, an inexplicable layer of dampness would cover his entire body, and the first words out of his mouth would be a quote from Stargate SG-1.
Doing the right thing is enough of a reward. Sometimes, however, you will find yourself quite surprised by the value that others place on your quietly heroic deeds.
