  • Blog Post: Top Ten Video Game Time Loops

    Time loops are confusing, but that is what makes them so much fun. A good time loop might resolve a central mystery or provide poignant insight into the characters trapped within it. Other times they are just fun to play around with or are so ludicrously constructed that you can’t help but laugh... More
  • Blog Post: 9 Series That Have Found Their Footing Without Their Creators

    Swirling rumors would have you believe that Hideo Kojima, the man who is synonymous with the Metal Gear series, is set to leave Konami – and the franchise he built – behind following Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

  • Blog Post: Predicting Amiibo Functionality In Nintendo’s 2015 Games

    Nintendo’s Amiibos already have plenty of functions in many of Nintendo’s games.

  • Blog Post: Keeping Promises: Seven Things That Need To Happen In 2015

    It's tough to make a promise when it comes to video game development. So many things can happen when it comes to a title or feature being completed, to say nothing of nailing a release date.

  • Blog Post: Opinion – 2015 Is Anyone's Year

    Going into 2014, the PlayStation 4 had a clear advantage. While Sony’s latest console flew off shelves during its launch window in late 2013, Microsoft’s Xbox One couldn't attain the same sales under the weight of a higher price tag and unclear pre-release brand messaging. At the same... More
  • Blog Post: Game Informer’s Most Anticipated Games of 2015

    If we could stare into the future and find out which games are going to turn out great, our jobs would be a lot easier.

  • Blog Post: If George R. R. Martin Created The Next Zelda Game

    The Legend of Zelda remains one of Nintendo's most popular series, but like many of the company's first-party games, it's often criticized for sticking too closely to its decades-old formula. At the same time, no element of the series has caused more backlash than The Wind Waker's introduction... More
  • Blog Post: Opinion: It's Time For Zelda To Change

    Several years ago, in the minutes before I was shown Epic Mickey for the first time, a representative from Disney Interactive told me Mickey Mouse wasn’t a relevant character in the world of entertainment anymore, and his image was that of an old, out-of-vogue cartoon character that most kids didn’t...

  • Blog Post: Places – Inside Kakariko Village’s Well

    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.

    People love dogs for many reasons: they’re cuddly, loyal, and protective. Video game canines run the gamut from lovable to ferocious, to alien and able to wield ninja kunai. Here’s our list of some of the best video game canines. Blanca – Shadow Hearts: Covenant Without Blanca, Yuri... More
  • Blog Post: Moments: Wind Waker's Last Battle

    The Legend of Zelda needs no introduction. It’s one of the few series that had its start in the infancy of console gaming, but still remains strong. With 25 years of sacred temples, mystical sages, and fierce battles, one moment shines the brightest to me. The last confrontation with Ganondorf... More
  • Blog Post: Moments: Majora's Mask Moon Crashing Into Termina

    Few, if any Zelda games, can match the darkness and maturity of Majora's Mask. This specific moment takes the cake as the title's most depressing. If you haven't played Majora's Mask (shame on you!), you should know that the premise of the game is that Link somehow finds an alternate... More
