  • Blog Post: Test Chamber – Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal

    Sonic's career has been through as many loop de loops as the blue hedgehog himself.

    In Time Commando, Stanley must explore a simulation of the past to save the present by collecting yellow triangles, fighting bears, and battling Loy.

  • Blog Post: Things You Might Miss In Alien: Isolation

    I did a little preparation before sitting down with Alien: Isolation– watching the Blu-ray release of Ridley Scott's 1979 film, Alien . As far as homework goes, you can do a lot worse. The film is just as great now as I remembered it. It'd been a while since I last watched it (my first... More
  • Blog Post: Our TGS Localization Wish List

    The hardest part about visiting Tokyo Game Show is seeing tons of games that are only slated for release in Japan. Of course that doesn't mean these games won't eventually come to the West.

  • Blog Post: How Mortal Kombat Changed The Industry And Helped Create E3

    Today, NetherRealm announced Mortal Kombat X , the latest in the long-running franchise.

  • Blog Post: Rectify Made The Best Use Of A Video Game I've Seen On Television

    With rare exceptions, I can't stand it when television shows depict video games. We've all seen it: people doing wild couch gyrations with outdated controllers to playing a first-person shooter with Space Invaders sound effects.
