  • Blog Post: Top 50 Challenge 2014 – Earth Defense Force 2025

    I’ve never played an Earth Defense Force game, but I’ve heard players sing their praises well before I met some of their fans here at Game Informer ( check out Joe Juba’s review here ). In many ways, it’s the Dynasty Warriors of third-person shooters. Lots of enemies on screen... 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.

  • Blog Post: Breaking Down The Dragon Age: Inquisition Romance Options

    The weight of the world may be on your shoulders, but that doesn't mean you won't find love along the way.

  • Blog Post: 12 Familiar Franchises You Didn't Realize Went Free-to-play

    Free-to-play may not be the total future of the video game industry, but it is absolutely a crucial part of it. From brand new brands to – as this list oulines – established franchises with a fanbase already in place, so many games have adopted the model that it's hard to keep up. These... More
  • Blog Post: The 10 Best Strategy/RPGs You Can Purchase Now

    The strategy/RPG has always been a niche genre, which is ironic since it's a hybrid of two popular genres in Japan.

  • Blog Post: Games To Beat In A Day – Heavenly Sword

    When I was younger, I’d be crushed if I beat a game in a day. In my eyes, I’d either squandered a trip to the video-rental store, a weekend trade with a friend, or – worst of all – $40. Now that I’m older, I’ve grown to appreciate games that get in, do what they do... More

  • Blog Post: Which Controller Is The Loudest? Sounding Off On Controller Noise

    Recently, while making my way through Infamous Second Son as the rest of my household was asleep, I could distinctly hear my controller echoing through the house.

  • Blog Post: Top 25 PlayStation 3 Games

    When the PlayStation 3 launched in November of 2006, some gamers wondered whether Sony's system would be able to catch up to the Xbox 360's one-year head start.

    There was a time when the kart racer was required bullet point on the resume of every mascot or franchise that happened to exist in the world of video games.
