  • Blog Post: Weekend Warrior 7/11/2014

    Just as the members of Loverboy once said in all their infinite wisdom, everyone in the Game Informer office is "working for the weekend." This week, everyone's got a diverse round-up of games on their respective agendas, ranging from Kickstarter RPGs to classic game franchise revivals... More
  • Blog Post: Reader Discussion: Have You Ever Gone Out Of Your Way For A Collectible?

    This afternoon, DC Collectibles announced that the Harley Quinn Arkham City statuette will be a featured San Diego Comic Con exclusive. Last year, there was an enormous Transformers Metroplex figure that was available first at the show. These aren’t easy to get, and often require standing in line... More
  • Blog Post: Reader Discussion – Do You Like Retro Throwbacks?

    Since the popularization of retro-inspired games like Cave Story and Super Meat Boy, the downloadable indie scene has become saturated with 8 and 16-bit visuals. Some of these nods to gaming's past are great, and others feel like they're simply cashing in on nostalgia. Yacht Club Games' polished... More
  • Blog Post: Weekend Warrior 7/3/14

    As many of us will be celebrating Independence Day tomorrow, and potentially throughout the weekend, you'd think video games would be on our collective backburners – but you'd be wrong. Like the nerds we are, not even a national holiday can stop us from partaking in our favorite hobby.... More
  • Blog Post: Reader Discussion: Who Is Your Favorite Actor Who Is Actually In A Game?

    Earlier today, we reported that Lindsay Lohan is suing Grand Theft Auto V publisher Take-Two over alleged unlicensed use of her likeness. We’ve laid out why she’s probably not going to be successful, but the lawsuit did get us thinking. There have been a lot of actors represented in video... More
  • Blog Post: Reader Discussion: Do Important Sporting Events Draw You To Sports Games?

    With the hockey and basketball playoffs now over and the World Cup in full swing, we wonder if you've been drawn back to the games that represent the sports. I have a confession. Usually after a few months of intense play, I'll cool off on sports games. What always draws me back in? When a big... More
  • Blog Post: Reader Discussion: Did E3 Convince You To Buy Any New Consoles?

    We’re still processing all of the information from E3, between new game announcements, previews, and interviews with developers. The annual trade show is an important opportunity to see what we’ll playing over the next two years, but it serves another purpose. Platform holders hope to inspire... More
  • Blog Post: Weekend Warrior 06/27/14

    This weekend a lot of the GI editors are either trying to finish or giving up on Watch Dogs, and getting deep into new downloadable titles like Valiant Hearts and Shovel Knight. It's also nice out, so some editors are doing outdoorsy things, or something. Let us know what you'll be up to below... More
  • Blog Post: Reader Discussion: What Games Are You Playing During The Summer Release Drought?

    It only takes a cursory glimpse at our 2014 release schedule to conclude that late June and throughout July isn’t looking to be a stellar few weeks for new game releases. On the bright side, this drought is coming on the heels of an exceptional 2013 holiday season and an early 2014 chock full of... More
  • Blog Post: Weekend Warrior 6/20/14

    Now that E3 is behind us, many of us are looking to unwind and get back to playing games for pleasure. Personally, I plan on playing Shantae for the first time via eShop (that trailer for Shantae and the Pirate's Curse from E3 looked great), catching up on the recent episodes of 24 I've missed... More
  • Blog Post: Reader Discussion: What Was Your Favorite Part Of E3 2014?

    Another E3 has come and gone, and while we certainly had fun at the show, we want to know what you thought the highlights were. This year was certainly more game-focused, which probably means your controller hands got a little sweaty watching the excitement unfold. Were you enamored of the press conferences... More
  • Blog Post: Reader Discussion: What’s Your E3 Routine?

    Whether you’re going to the show, or watching from a distance, everyone has a special routine. What’s yours? For gamers, June is a big deal. Not many games generally release during the month, but what happens at E3 typically sets the tone and the direction of the industry for the rest of... More
  • Blog Post: Reader Discussion: What Was Your Favorite Year In Gaming?

    Video games come out every year, but some years seem juicer that others. Does one year stand out from the pack for you in terms of video game releases? This might sounds like a strange question, but I've always thought that the year 1998 was a really great year for video games. That year saw the... More
  • Blog Post: Weekend Warrior 06/06/14

    With E3 fast approaching, most of the GI staff won’t have a lot of time for more than packing, charging electronics, and trying (and failing) not to have mental breakdowns. It looks like at least a few of us have still somehow found time to get into some of the latest releases. Have a good weekend... More
  • Blog Post: Reader Discussion: Are You Racing Through Chicago Or Along Rainbow Road?

    Two very different games released last week: an M-rated open world action game, and a Nintendo kart racer. Which is stealing more of your time? Both games involve driving, but that is where comparisons between Watch Dogs and Mario Kart 8 end ( unless you count both featuring cold killers ). Which one... More
  • Blog Post: Weekend Warrior 05/30/2014

    Now that Watch Dogs is finally in our hands, it looks like it will be taking up a good chunk of weekend time for many of us. Still, a few of us are still hanging back and finishing up some games on our backlogs which is never a bad thing. What are you guys playing this weekend? Let us know in the comments... More
  • Blog Post: Reader Discussion: Do You Like Battlefield's New Direction?

    EA and Visceral have confirmed that the newest Battlefield is going to be different. It leaves the traditional military setting behind, bringing the war to the streets in a multiplayer cops-and-robbers shootout. It's an interesting idea for a game...but is it Battlefield? Franchises are constantly... More
  • Blog Post: Reader Discussion: Are You Live Streaming On Your New-Gen Console?

    One of the features of new-gen consoles that took off faster than others is the ability to live stream gameplay. Are you taking advantage of it? Do you refuse to play a game unless it is being broadcast to the masses? Or did you try it once and walk away unimpressed? Do you spend just as much time watching... More
  • Blog Post: Reader Discussion Round-Up – What You Want To See At E3

    Recently, we ran a collection of reader discussions asking what you want to see from Microsoft , Nintendo , and Sony at E3. We've gathered up your feedback. Microsoft Unsurprisingly, the big call for Microsoft is for Halo. Microsoft did release a few Halo 5 details after posting our discussion, like... More
  • Blog Post: Reader Discussion – What's A Long Shot You Want At E3?

    We're only a few weeks away from E3, and gamers have an idea of what to expect from much of the show. New entries in long-running franchises will be revealed and playable on the show floor. VR will likely have a major presence. We'll probably be surprised by some cool-looking new IP. This is... More
