  • 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

    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.

    Over the last few weeks I have found myself slightly embarrassed to be a video game fan, due more or less entirely to the controversy surrounding Mass Effect 3. More

  • There Is A Mega Man X Ringtone On Your iPhone

    22 1

    I have been waking up to the xylophone alarm sound on my iPhone for years, and I always knew there was something familiar about it. It took a little research but I finally figured it out. It wasn't so much research as it was Chill Penguin's theme coming up on shuffle while listening to my iPod, but isn't that how most scientific discoveries are made? More

  • The Best Podcasts According To My Brain

    24

    Before coming to Game Informer, I was a content manager for the websites of five different local newspaper in South Carolina. My job was to take online content, and manage it. It was a lot of copy/pasting without a whole lot of thought. One thing it did allow me to do though, was listen to lots and lots of podcasts. I became a connoisseur of the medium. More

    In the layout of desks here at Game Informer, I am about one underhand softball toss by a small child's distance from Adam's desk. He likes to shout when he plays games much to my entertainment, and today he is reviewing VVVVVVVV for the Nintendo 3DS.
