Places – World Of Warcraft's Crossroads
on February 25, 2014 at 03:48 PM
Some would say Blizzard’s virtual playground of Azeroth is all about acquiring new, rare loot or participating in end-game content, which might be true for some. But for me, Azeroth is defined by its places and the people who inhabit them, and I’m of the belief that no other place captures...
Places: Kingdom Hearts' Hollow Bastion
on February 19, 2014 at 03:36 PM
There isn’t a world more iconic in all of the Kingdom Hearts series than Hollow Bastion. We were first introduced to it in Kingdom Hearts, which I came into as a kid who loved Final Fantasy. I was also a fan of Disney movies, but the real hook was seeing some of my favorite RPG characters placed...
Places – Dustbowl In Team Fortress 2
on February 12, 2014 at 03:37 PM
Anyone who has ever played Team Fortress 2 has probably played Dustbowl.

on December 04, 2013 at 01:53 PM
Widely considered one of the greatest games of all time, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is also the first title in the series to use 3D graphics. Until Ocarina, my only experience with the series had been playing Link’s Awakening. I remember being stunned by Ocarina’s visuals, music...

Places: The Wonders Of A Dark Wonderland In Alice Madness Returns
on February 26, 2013 at 02:09 PM

Places: Sleeping Dogs’ Hong Kong
on February 08, 2013 at 01:00 PM
Only a few games have immediately immersed me in the world, but that’s exactly what happened when I stepped into Sleeping Dogs’ Hong Kong. As someone who has never been to Hong Kong, it felt like I was instantly transported there and found myself focusing more on the backdrops than driving...

Growing up in the 1980s, Transformers was one of those foundational science-fiction universes that made me fall in love with the genre. Newer sci-fi enthusiasts now enter the fold through a fantastic array of fictional backdrops to embrace in cartoons, games, comics, and movies. The pickings were slimmer...
