  • Blog Post: Top 50 Challenge 2014 – Kirby: Triple Deluxe

    I don't know who the Kirby fans are out there. There's Game Informer's Kimberley Wallace, but she'd be a fan of a wet towel on a bathroom floor if it was pink, so I don't know if she really counts. I vaguely remember enjoying Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land on the Game Boy Advance... More
  • Blog Post: Top 50 Challenge 2014 - Thief

    Andy Reiner challenged me to test my stealth skills in Eidos Montreal's reboot of the Thief franchise? Did this game steal my heart? You'll have to read on to find out (Get it? I said "steal" my heart because the game about a guy who steals things...pretty clever). I like to go into... More
  • Blog Post: Top 50 Challenge 2014 – Civilization: Beyond Earth

    My colleague Daniel Tack has been sharing with me his enthusiasm about Beyond Earth since his initial review , so I jumped at the chance to dive into the game myself and see how it compares with previous Civilization titles. I’m glad I did, as Beyond Earth is a rich and complex title. While it... More
  • Blog Post: Top 50 Challenge 2014 – Fantasia: Music Evolved

    I like music. I know it’s not exactly a controversial statement, but it’s been a constant throughout my life. Growing up, something was almost always playing on the family stereo. I played an instrument from elementary school through high school, and eventually combined my loves of music... More
  • Blog Post: Fight For The Top 50 2014 – The Banner Saga

    The Banner Saga isn't a game filled with spectacle. It doesn't feature motion-capped voice acting, or big budget particle effects, or hundreds of hours of side quests. Still, it's an incredibly intelligent strategy game wrapped around a compelling and heartfelt story. Even more impressive... More
  • Blog Post: Fight For The Top 50 - LittleBigPlanet 3

    Picking a game to champion for our Top 50 Challenge was easy; I knew it had to be Sumo Digital's charming platformer LittleBigPlanet 3. As a long time fan of the LittleBigPlanet series, I was worried when it was announced that Sumo Digital was taking over the series for Media Molecule. Thankfully... More
  • Blog Post: Fight For The Top 50 2014 – Skylanders: Trap Team

    Whittling down all of the year’s releases down to 50 is a difficult – some might say futile – task. The point of today’s challenges are to give editors a reason to spend time with a game that they might not ordinarily play. I can’t think of a better game for our annual Top... More
  • Blog Post: Top 50 Challenge – Battleblock Theater

    As a longtime fan of platformers and someone who really enjoyed Castle Crashers, I was excited when I heard that The Behemoth was working on Battleblock Theater. For one reason or another, however, I never got around to playing it near its release in April. Now that it’s getting down to crunch... More
  • Blog Post: Top 50 Challenge – Gunpoint

    Upon learning that Gunpoint is a side-scrolling noir puzzle title, I was a little skeptical. I didn't want the noir to be too campy, and I hoped the puzzles would be interesting enough to hold my interest – and I'm not a big puzzle gamer. Thankfully, Gunpoint is an engrossing enough game... More
  • Blog Post: Fight For The Top 50 – Papers, Please

    Choice in video games is often a black or white construct around being good or bad. Thankfully, Papers, Please is a title that explores the grey void where such simplistic labels do not apply. Even though you're a paper-pushing bureaucrat with limited gameplay options available to you, the game does... More
  • Blog Post: Fight For The Top 50 – BattleBlock Theater

    One of my favorite early Xbox Live Arcade games was Castle Crashers – the brilliant brawler from the folks over at The Behemoth. That’s why I was so excited when the developer finally released BattleBlock Theater earlier this year. While the team’s earlier efforts with Alien Hominid... More
  • Blog Post: Fight For The Top 50 – Lego City: Undercover

    When Jeff Cork and I visited Traveller's Tales for our Lego Marvel Super Heroes cover, Warner Bros. also gave us a thorough demo of what their other studio TT Fusion was working on. I shot a quick video interview about the game amidst the chaos of E3, but this was my first opportunity to give the... More
  • Blog Post: Fight For The Top 50 – Gunpoint

    Before being placed on the review for Gunpoint , I knew nothing about the game, which meant I went into the experience totally blind and without expectations. I immediately found myself engaged in the noir world, having a blast with the ability to leap and bound huge distances in order to hack and sneak... More
  • Blog Post: Fight For The Top 50 – The Swapper

    One of the joys of reviewing video games is stumbling upon titles that otherwise wouldn't have appeared on your personal radar. Back in May, I ran into one of my favorite instances of this. If I wasn't working in the industry, odds are that I would have never heard of indie PC title The Swapper... More
  • Blog Post: Fight For The Top 50 - Saints Row IV

    When Saints Row emerged on the scene on the Xbox 360, I barely paid any attention. Volition and THQ aped Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto series and added in some customization features, but it followed the formula without really differentiating itself. It wasn’t until Saints Row: The Third that... More
  • Blog Post: The Game Informer Fight For The Top 50 Challenge 2013

    Around this time each year, Game Informer begins the process of creating our list of the top 50 best games of the year. This year, we decided to let you in on a part of the process. When you're making a year-end list, game's generally tend to fall into three categories: games that are likely... More
