  • Blog Post: Remembering LucasArts One Year Later

    Just one year ago today, the gaming industry lost one of its oldest and most respected publishers. On April 3, 2013, we broke the story that LucasArts had been shut down. What followed throughout the day were calls and emails to many well-known developers who had worked with the publisher throughout... More
  • Blog Post: Why You Should Go Back To Plants Vs. Zombies 2

    When Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time launched worldwide last August on iOS (and a couple months later on Android), there was a lot to love. Fans experienced inventive new worlds, powerful new plants, and pesky new zombies. Plus, the base game was all free. However, certain elements dragged... More
  • Blog Post: What Do Film Critics Think Of The Need For Speed Movie?

    Need for Speed is the most recent of game-to-film adaptations, and we wanted to know what our opposite numbers in film critique have to say about it. The genre (if it can be called that) already has a bad reputation, and it looks like Need for Speed won’t be changing that any time soon. Need for... More
  • Blog Post: Confessions of An FPS Rookie: My First Day With Titanfall

    I'll be frank: You're more likely to find an RPG or sports game in my console than a shooter. Don't take that to mean I don't enjoy shooters; the issue is that you have to sink time into any given shooter to master the mechanics - something I don't have enough hours for with my aforementioned...

  • Blog Post: Analysis – Titanfall Is Poised To Set Industry Trends

    The Titanfall beta is still in full swing, and if you’re available to play now, Microsoft is conducting a big stress test. Before you jump into your 20 foot tall robotic shell though, here are some things to look for while you’re playing that will have an impact on the industry. The value... More
  • Blog Post: Titanfall Beta Impressions: A Breath Of Fresh FPS Air

    Last night I had my first taste of Titanfall gameplay. Before we begin, there’s the obvious caveat that this is a beta and not everything is in or working as it may be at release. After spending around five hours with the title unlocking weapons, creating various loadouts, and discovering how to... More
  • Blog Post: Opinion - EA And DICE Have Lost Consumer Trust

    Since the launch of Battlefield 4 in late October, we’ve written many stories highlighting the ongoing problems with the game. Throughout, EA and DICE have been slow to respond to requests for information. When we follow up to understand what’s going on, why discrepancies in information exist... More
  • Blog Post: Opinion: Twitch And Popular Streamer Share Blame For Server Outages

    Yesterday, starting about approximately 4 PM Eastern, a group known as “DerpTrolling” initiated a number of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks. During the assaults on League of Legends, Dota 2, and other games, popular streamer James Varga, who goes by the name of “PhantomL0rd”... More
  • Blog Post: Here’s Where Publishers Stand On YouTube Monetization And Copyright Right Now

    Following this week’s YouTube copyright catastrophe , we reached out to a number of publishers to find out where they stand on the matter. We were able to reach a number of publishers, and have also compiled public statements from others. YouTube videos have been growing in popularity, especially... More
  • Blog Post: Fight For The Top 50 – Dead Space 3

    The third installment in Isaac Clarke’s battle against the necromorphs blew me away when it released earlier this year. Dead Space 3 took the core combat I loved about the series and ratcheted it up with meaner enemies and a deep weapon crafting system. The third game integrated co-op that toyed... More
  • Blog Post: Test Chamber – Need For Speed: Rivals

    Need for Speed: Rivals is one of the top launch titles for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. While we weren't able to show the game's excellent multiplayer functionality in this episode of Test Chamber, Dan Ryckert does show off his impressive driving skills, and perhaps a blind spot in his vision...

  • Blog Post: Opinion – Enough With The Blind-Buy Microtransactions In Full-Priced Games

    In the beginning, you bought a game. You brought that cartridge home. And then you played it until you had to blow on it to make it work. Those days weren’t perfect, but they were pretty darn good. Then, we evolved. We connected to the Internet. We bought DLC. And sure, not all of it was worth... More
  • Blog Post: Connection Failed: Troubled Online Launches

    Games are more connected than ever. Many of the world's most popular games are now exclusively online, and an increasing number blur the line between single- and multiplayer. Times are changing, but one thing has remained constant: Launching a large-scale online game is a difficult proposition -... More
  • Blog Post: Plotting The Future Of EA Sports

    EA Sports says it's going to handle the console transition better this time around, but then what? The label is bringing its two heavyweights – FIFA and Madden – to the next-gen console launches, but bigger decisions loom. We take a look at some of the issues facing EA and its sports... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Mutant League Football

    We take a look back at EA's grisly gridiron classic. By now, you may have heard the news that Michael Mendheim, the creator of Mutant League Football, is launching a Kickstarter to create a spiritual successor to the Genesis-era cult classic. We have all the news about that in the new issue of Game... More
  • Blog Post: What's New For Peggle 2

    When it rains it pours, and good news is pouring for Popcap fans. Following the success of Plants Vs. Zombies 2 , Popcap officially unveiled a sequel to Peggle at the Xbox One event at Gamescom. While at first glance the game looks remarkably faithful to the original, the team is adding new "Masters"... More
  • Blog Post: Test Chamber – Plants Vs. Zombies 2

    PopCap's Plants vs. Zombies was a perfect iOS game before it was even on iOS. Thankfully, the company has decided to release the sequel straight to phones this time around. Don't worry, the game is just as addictive as the first. Join Andrew Reiner, Ben Reeves, and Adam Biessener as they pelt... More
  • Blog Post: Looking Back On The Development Of Plants Vs. Zombies 2

    Now that Plants Vs. Zombies 2 is nearly out in places other than Australia (PopCap is still cagey about a release, but it's real close), we talked with senior producer Allen Murray about the development of the game and why the team decided to release on iOS first. When did development of Plants vs... More
  • Blog Post: From Pot To Page: A Look At The Plants Vs. Zombies Comic

    A lot of video games have comic book spinoffs, but PopCap’s cutesy strategy title Plants vs. Zombies would seem an odd target for such an adaptation. And yet, EA has teamed up with Dark Horse to produce a Plants vs. Zombies digital comic . We talked with writer Paul Tobin – best known for... More
