  • The Legend Of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds' Hero Mode Exclusives

    4

    I've played a lot of Link Between Worlds. Probably too much. I played through the game once, and quickly restarted it on the Hero Mode difficulty and didn't stop until I had everything. The main difference between the two modes is that in Hero Mode, you take significantly more damage, making the game harder. There are a few other differences though, and I grabbed a few example images if you were curious what else changes. More

  • Exploring Pokémon X & Y With Kalos' Worst Photographer

    10

    If Grand Theft Auto V and the The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD are any indication, the ability to photograph your virtual self in a video game is the future. It was a welcome surprise to learn that Pokémon X & Y offered this feature. It all falls apart, however, when you realize that despite claiming to be a professional photographer, Phil the Photo Guy has clearly never used a camera in his life and is making no effort to learn.

    A few years ago, my brother Tristan and I decided, for no particular reason, to try and make an animated Batman short. This is as far as we got. More

  • Bioshock Infinite's Biggest Mystery

    27

    I finally finished Bioshock Infinite last night, and can happily return to Internet message boards and walk around the Game Informer offices without my fingers in my ears. I, along with many others, walked away with questions. I dove into assorted summaries of the story and ending, watched our Spoiled video segment on the game, and can happily report that I think I mostly have a decent grasp on what happened. I have still have questions though. More

  • Behind The Scenes Video – Super Replay Showdown 2013

    11

    The first round of this year's Super Replay Showdown was a harrowing experience for Kim and I, and if this quick behind the scenes video is any indication, it was also a stressful situation for Dan, as well. More

  • 10000000 Is A Near-Perfect Mobile Game

    5

    10000000 is a weird name for a video game, arguably a bad one, but it is easy to find in the App Store, so the decision to call it that was not completely misguided. More

  • My Favorite Track Off The New Between The Buried And Me Album

    I'm not sure if I have made it clear before, but I am a big fan of the experimental metal band Between the Buried and Me. During my high school and college years I was into metal in a big way, playing in a metal band and attending shows nearly every weekend. I fell off the metal bandwagon so to speak near the end of college and don't listen to the genre nearly as much as I used to. Between the Buried and Me, however, is the exception. I adore the band with their incredibly intricate coordination and staunch opposition to the idea that a metal band needs to only play metal. They use metal as a way to connect all the different genres they feel like dabbling in record to record.

    Many, many years ago, when you had to call the Internet on the phone to request permission to surf the web, my brother and I discovered a music program called Fruity Loops. This is what happened. More

  • I Skipped Every Single Cut Scene In Prototype 2

    34

    I have played hundreds, possibly thousands, of video games throughout my life, but Prototype 2 was the first time I have ever skipped every cut scene in a game. Even the worst video game stories have demanded my attention, but with Prototype 2, it just seemed like the right time to completely ignore the story. More

    I have had an on and off relationship with Chrono Trigger for years. The game received all kinds of accolades when it released in 1995, but I didn’t play it until about four years later.
