Nearly twelve years since its release, I am yet to play a first-person shooter that is as satisfying as F.E.A.R. from 2005. I am just going to put it out there: F.E.A.R. has the best first-person combat of all time.
Mass Effect: Andromeda is being savaged up and down the Internet as we speak. It did some things that aren’t so great, and now certain people have gone a step past “disappointed” to “outraged”. This is how things are now, I suppose.
Hi everyone. Long time no see.
I think the headline is pretty self explanatory, really.
Later this month, Resident Evil 4 will get it’s nine millionth release on the Xbox One and Playstation 4. I am going to buy it, because I am a sucker.
Professional Dota2's biggest event, The International, kicked off in earnest yesterday. A lot of great Dota was played, but this highlight from defending International champs Evil Geniuses in their Group Stage match up against Chinese team Wings is easily the highlight of the day:
On a whim, I recently replayed Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. I haven’t played it in a few years, but always name dropped it as a game that I consider to be a masterpiece. Needless to say, my opinion of the game hasn’t changed for the worse. If anything, I love it even more.
Like the rest of the world (that has the game available to them), I have been enthralled with Pokémon Go over the last week. All the while, I have been trying to decide whether it was the best thing in the world, or just a bad game preying on my love and nostalgia for Pokémon.
Resident Evil 5 was rereleased on Xbox One and PS4 this past week. I was pretty excited for it! I had a lot of fun playing co-op back when the game was initially released in 2009, and I was looking forward to taking Chris and Sheva back to Africa for another spin.
But... oh goodness. Where to start? I have long…
Aw man, EA. Why do you have to do this to yourself?
Resident Evil 7's announcement at E3 wasn’t necessarily a surprise, but the form that the game is taking sure is.
A theme that will come up over and over again as I write about the Dreamcast is how creative and innovative Sega was in the late 90's and early 2000's. But a truly great system needs great support from third party partners.
I have never been a huge fan of Electronic Arts.
I shouldn’t have to explain my issues with EA. In fact, if you want a recent example of their hubris and general bullshit, look no further than last week’s revelation of Star Wars: Battlefront’s missing campaign!
About a month ago, I wrote a bit about the Sega Dreamcast and its games. Since that point, I have been spending my non Dark Souls III gaming time basking in the glow of Sega’s beautiful little white box that was too lovely for our cruel world.
Earlier this week, I wrote about the original Hotline Miami, a sharp little nightmare that I haven’t been able to get out of my head since the first time I played it.
Hotline Miami was generally beloved by players and critics alike when it was released in 2012, with particular praise going towards its violent, hard as nails combat, pulse pounding music, and the simultaneously bright and gritty visual aesthetic.
The high majority of movie tie-in games are abject trash. It doesn’t have to be that way. Every once in a while, you get a game that is actually worth your time and money, and feels like more than a quick cash grab.
Sonic the Hedgehog will officially turn 25 years old in June. Holy hell.
I never thought I would say this, but I miss the hell out of licensed games.
X-Men: Apocalypse is coming out in about a month, and the X-Men are my favorite superheroes, so let’s talk X-Men video games.
There are over 25 X-Men games, and I haven’t even played all of them, so ranking them would be a massive undertaking. Instead, let’s remember some of the good, bad, and in between moments in the…
