2017 has been one of the most packed, and high quality years for game releases ever. The year has been full with not only some of the best video games ever made, but some of the most great games in any year.
This weekend, to mixed critical reception Gore Verbinski’s first movie since 2013’s The Lone Ranger released to theaters. A Cure for Wellness offers both beautiful and grotesque visuals, but fans of 2008’s BioShock should pay attention for another reason. Verbinski was the director who almost brought Rapture to film.
I’ve completed the first level of the Nioh Beta, and as a big Dark Souls fan, I’m ready to share some thoughts on Team Ninja’s shot at a Souls clone.
A few days ago Blizzard launched a limited Overwatch event, the “Summer Games,” themed around the 2016 Rio Olympics. While everyone is busy playing Lucioball and only unlocking the limited edition skins for characters they never play, this reminded me of an event from a few years earlier, the first time Blizzard…
The final chapter of From Software’s beloved Dark Souls series has finally hit, bringing the obscure story to a close at last (at least until the first DLC pack hits this fall). I’m here to attempt to piece the story together for those who don’t have the time.
Remember when I wrote up an article on the first area of the Bloodborne DLC, and indicated I’d be continuing to do that with the other two areas, back in November? Yeah. Good times. Anyway, it’s February now, here’s the follow up. Spoilers to follow!
Every year, I post a collection of thoughts on the year somewhere, but this is the first year in a while I haven’t had a good place to do that, like a blog I was running. So here it is, my favorite games of 2015.
Bloodborne’s first and only DLC pack is out, and it carries with it a ton of new bits of lore information. As a follow up to my Bloodborne - The Story and Bloodborne Stories - The Secret of Cainhurst articles, I’m writing articles exploring the storyline of The Old Hunters DLC. Major spoilers behind the break.
On the surface, I doubt you could find two games more different than the atmospheric adventure game Journey, and the hardcore role-playing game Dark Souls. One is about a little guy in a scarf walking through a desert, and the other is a challenging game about conquering the odds to take down bosses. At the same time,…
The third Stevenbomb has begun, bringing us lies, damned lies, and Sardonyx. Spoilers to follow.
Ben Drowned. Pokemon Black. Jvk1166z.esp. These names, among others, may or may not mean anything to you. They’re but a few so-called “creepypasta,” horror stories written and shared on the internet under the pretense of being true, which share a common idea, an old, beloved video game which isn’t acting quite the way…
After a respectful run of almost 8 years, beloved Disney cartoon Phineas and Ferb is coming to an end. Not before giving us one last day (or three) of summer, though.
This is a trailer for a found footage movie with the words “M. Night Shyamalan” in the credits. Released in the year of our lord two-thousand and fifteen. And I actually think it looks all right.
What exactly does "new visitors" mean when you mouse over the hit counter on an article? It can't be "hits since you last viewed the page," because it'll be the same number or higher when I come back. Is it registering anyone who didn't have a Gawker cookie as a "new visitor"? Not that it matters much, I'm just…
As a follow up to my post on the story of Bloodborne last week, I’ve decided to take a look at another story in the game, tangential to the main plot, but interesting nonetheless. Spoilers ahead as we delve into a story of intrigue and tragedy, with an abandoned castle at the heart of it all.
Platinum. Boom. 100% completion. I am the 0.6%. Hey guys, that Bloodborne game is all right.
From Software's latest tough-as-nails action RPG is out, complete with, of course, the same vague and bizarre storytelling the Souls series was famous for. I've completed the game, read item descriptions, looked at some fan theories, and while it might take a while for the community to discern what's really going on…
Who could possibly say why? I'm sure there's a reason, but it must be slipping my mind at the moment.
What did we think of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt? Spoilers inside.
For those who, like me, hadn't picked it up yet. It's listed at $25, but there's a code for an additional 20% off your purchase (I picked up Valkyria Chronicles for $8 as well, regularly $20. I don't even know what kind of a game Valkyria Chronicles is, but I hear people like it). The game is redeemable on Steam.
