  • Blog Post: Twin-Sticking To Your Guns – From Robotron To Lara Croft

    Twin-stick shooters have been around since Robotron: 2084 made palms sweaty back in 1982.

Now, with the recent release... More
  • Blog Post: Top 50 Challenge 2014 – Wolfenstein: The New Order

    I'm a huge fan of shooters, so I had no qualms with picking up the new Wolfenstein game for this year's top 50 challenge. Oddly enough this is the first time I've ever played this classic series, but I'm glad I did. At this point we're all more than familiar with the World War ll... More
  • Blog Post: An Ode To The Most Important Power-Up: Double Jump

    This week, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare released into the palms of millions of excited gamers.

  • Blog Post: Clever Parody Games You Should Try

    Video games have a long and storied history with humor, one that Game Informer’s own Ben Reeves has chronicled well . As games and technology have evolved, so too has the medium’s ability to incorporate different subgenres of comedy. Parody, however, remains largely uncharted waters. Plenty... More
  • Blog Post: Five Little Destiny Tweaks That Would Make A World Of Difference

    I’ve been playing a lot of Destiny lately, and it’s one of the most peculiar games I can recall. It’s got a solid foundation and I can see greater potential, but it seems like Bungie completely whiffed a lot of the small stuff. The game’s gotten a lot of flak online for its poorly... More

  • Blog Post: Replay – Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2013

    Don’t be fooled by the words Cabela or hunt, this isn’t a traditional light gun hunting experience. We don’t want to ruin the surprise, but Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2013 is easily one of the wildest games out there. If you think that hunting involves a lot of patience and steady... More

  • Blog Post: Watch Us Kill Hitler Repeatedly In Sniper Elite 3

    Sniper Elite III is a disappointing game, but my work isn't over just because I've finished reviewing it . One task remains thanks to the Hunt the Greywolf pre-order DLC: Kill Hitler. I strapped up my boots, loaded my rifle, and set off back to Africa to take out the sinister dictator in a variety... More
  • Blog Post: Far Out: Reflections On The Far Cry Series

    Video game series rarely stay the same over the decades. As a brand ages, it evolves. Far Cry is a perfect example. Crytek’s original shooter had players using their surroundings to lay traps and stalk opponents through a lush archipelago, but the series has grown into a larger open world experience... More
  • Blog Post: Moments: “White Phosphorus” In Spec Ops: The Line

    Spec Ops: The Line is a game that routinely takes your expectations and blasts them to pieces. A simple and straightforward military shooter on the outside, the game’s exterior is hiding a spot-on critique of military shooters and what it means to be a “hero” in a violent scenario where... More
  • Blog Post: Battlefield 4 Naval Strike Impressions – Shore Lunch

    Five months after launch, DICE and EA are still struggling to get Battlefield 4 running smoothly , but that hasn't stopped them from releasing a steady stream of new maps.

  • Blog Post: Confessions of An FPS Rookie: My First Day With Titanfall

    I'll be frank: You're more likely to find an RPG or sports game in my console than a shooter. Don't take that to mean I don't enjoy shooters; the issue is that you have to sink time into any given shooter to master the mechanics - something I don't have enough hours for with my aforementioned... More
  • Blog Post: Test Chamber – Helldivers

    Deep in the outer reaches of space, a group of fearless space marines do battle with an army of giant insects. These brave souls are called Helldivers.

  • Blog Post: Analysis – Opening BF4 Balancing To Player Voting Could Backfire

    Given Battlefield 4's rough launch, DICE has spent the majority of its time since Oct 29 scrambling to stabilize its servers across five platforms.

  • Blog Post: Top 50 Challenge – Dead Space 3

    Ever since Dead Space 3 was released, Tim has been championing its merits to anyone who will listen to him.

  • Blog Post: Battlefield 4 Dos and Don'ts

    Many consider the Battlefield series to be the more civilized of first-person shooters. Mere twitch skills may fuel your success in the barbaric team deathmatches of other games, but your well-developed muscle memory must be buttressed with a healthy sense of camaraderie and a keen understanding of tactics...

  • Blog Post: Replay – Target: Terror

    Even if the Wii didn't become the shooter destination that Nintendo fans initially claimed it would be, it proved on rare occasions that it could be good for some silly shootouts (The House of the Dead: Overkill immediately comes to mind). One insane game apparently flew beneath our radar, and I... More
  • Blog Post: Not A Review: Firefall

    During the desperate combat, battling tides of aliens in your jetpack power ­armor, Firefall seems to offer everything a hybrid ­MMO/shooter possibly could. After the dust settles, it’s a different story. When much of your cash has been eaten by repair costs and you’ve shaved off... More
