  • Blog Post: Destiny - Xur's Gear And Upgrades For The Weekend Of February 27

    Happy Xursday, everyone! This is the first time Xur is back in the tower following a patch that fixes the longstanding heavy ammo bug and... he doesn't have any heavy ammo packs with him.

  • Blog Post: Seven Things That Will Make The Tomb Raider Film A Blockbuster

    Movies are generally made by committee, meaning it takes a lot of great ideas to make a generic piece of Hollywood drivel. With that in mind, let us offer up some suggestions for Warner Bros., GK Films, and MGM as they produce the new Tomb Raider movie. Daugherty hangs out on the set of Teenage Mutant... More
  • Blog Post: The Top Ten Throws

    Throwing characters and objects in games is immensely entertaining. Throws can be humorous, destructive, preposterous, and epic all at once.

  • Blog Post: Looking Back At 10 Years Of Monster Hunter With Its Producer

    Last year marked the 10th anniversary of the Monster Hunter series – a franchise that has found huge success in Japan and has built a small but devoted fan base in America.

  • Blog Post: Heroes Of The Storm May Be Your Perfect MOBA

    Well, here we are – I’ve reached level 40 in the Heroes of the Storm closed beta , the current cap. Blizzard’s take on the MOBA genre is fast (games last around the 15-20 minute realm), accessible, and a blast with friends, which is a far cry from the rather rickety tech alpha that... More

  • Blog Post: Balancing Survival Vs. Action In Rise Of The Tomb Raider

    Leading up to the release of the Tomb Raider reboot in 2013, Crystal Dynamics pushed the theme that Lara Croft was a survivor. While the survival aspects certainly were a large part of the story, the game didn't cross the line of becoming a systems-driven "survival game." While visiting... More

    In the middle of the day on Thursday, February 19, Game Informer editor-in-chief Andy McNamara shared with me a video of a young boy who fell victim to an online predator .

  • Blog Post: Test Chamber – Blasting Off With Sid Meier's Starships

    Firaxis' Beyond Earth took the beloved Civilization formula and shot it into space where players got to terraform a planet and interact with exotic alien life.

  • Blog Post: Comparing Dragon Ball Xenoverse On PlayStation 3 And PlayStation 4

  • Blog Post: Future Amiibo Figures We'd Love To See

    With its all-star cast of recognizable characters, the Super Smash Bros. line of Amiibos served as a great introduction to the figures.

  • Blog Post: "It's A Monster!" – The Evolution Of Resident Evil's Zombies

    Long before zombies overran video games, Capcom horrified players with their unforgettable ghouls.

To celebrate today's release of Resident... More
  • Blog Post: The Tomb Raider Team Reacts To Conan O’Brien Failing At Their Game

  • Blog Post: A Growing Guide Of Easy Achievements For Xbox One

    I thought I was done with Microsoft's achievements. I no longer hunted down games with easily obtainable points. No longer stuck with bad games just to get the big 50- or 10-point achievements upon completing them. No longer felt the desire to stay a good 100,000 points ahead of my friends, who clearly... More

    Dragon Ball Z's first foray into the world of new-generation consoles launches today, and we took at look that game's opening moments and character customization options.
