A couple of weeks ago I asked my Twitter followers if they had stumbled upon any fun adventure games for iPhone. Ever since I read our magazine feature on Double Fine's upcoming title, Broken Age, I've been looking forward to setting off on an adventure in the vein of LucasArts' classics.
This gorgeous stealth/puzzler is worth a look.
I purchased my first 3DS (I now have two 3DS XLs) on launch day. In that first week, my coworkers and I played the living hell out of this handheld. We made sure we had them at work so we could connect via StreetPass to collect all of the puzzle pieces and finish off Find Mii’s dungeon.
The Game Informer staff is trading puzzle pieces again. We're also enjoying a new Mii-based game.
Hats off to the creative minds at NECA Toys who came up with the idea of creating a toy based on Jason Voorhees' appearance in the NES game, Friday the 13th. The figure is currently a San Diego Comic Con exclusive, meaning you'll have to be at this week's show to get it.

I don't like giving myself titles, but it would be silly of me not to call myself an expert on stupid science fiction shark movies. I missed Sharknado last night (and likely won't watch it until it hits Blu-Ray), but I have seen a ridiculous number of films about mutated, killer sharks.

My wife and I have been playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf every day since June 9 (the game's release date and my birthday).My town is called Eden. Should you ever have the chance to visit this paradise, you'll find that none of the residents are happy, because the mayor ignores them and spends all of his time digging up dinosaur bones and collecting Nintendo memorabilia.
My town is covered in weeds and has seen little growth since I took over as mayor. Here's why.
I'm a big fan of Guillermo del Toro's work. From Hellboy to Pan's Labyrinth, the man knows how to sell a vision and adapt well-known properties to the big screen. His latest film, Pacific Rim, opens this week, and is easily my most anticipated film of the year. Giant robots battling Godzilla-like monstrosities, starring the leading actors from Sons of Anarchy...what's not to love?
I need a new statue for my desk. A giant Godzilla-like creature sounds like the right choice.
Few people in the world likely wake up every Wednesday morning as excited as I am. Why am I so giddy? Wednesday is what I call "Comic Book Day." All new comic books hit store shelves on this day. I'm usually standing outside my comic book shop's doors minutes before they open to ensure I don't miss out on any new releases.
I've been reading Batman comics since I was a young lad. Here are the books I currently read every month.
I arrived at work today to find a mysterious Lego Star Wars box sitting on my desk. The message "secrets to reveal there are" is written on one of the sides. The rest of the box is covered in what would appear to be Lego lights, some of them flashing.

Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is one of the games I was looking forward to playing the most this year. Given my somewhat psychotic desire to reach 200,000 gamerscore as quickly as possible (I currently sit at 199,454), my interest in this expansion nosedived a few days ago. I discovered Capcom didn’t create any new achievements for it, and I had to know why.
Like From Software's Dark Souls before it, Dark Arisen has earned a
reputation for delivering punishing battles. The difference is that the
thrill of overcoming great odds in Capcom's latest won’t be heralded by a
Due to the shaky stability of Defiance’s Xbox 360 servers during my gaming hours, I haven’t been able invest as much time as I’ve wanted to into this massively multiplayer shooting experience. Kelly, my lovely wife, has graciously given me a nice window to play Defiance this weekend.
The Game Informer staff plans to play Defiance on Xbox 360. You can join the Hellbug hunt!
A couple of weeks ago I geeked out over the idea of George R. R. Martin's Game of Thrones being turned into a Lego series. Brick builder David Frank (known as Fraslund on Flickr) shows us that He-Man and the Masters of the Universe has just as much "I will give you all of my money for every set" potential. Frank's custom piece is of Castle Grayskull, home to The Sorceress and that strange power that makes He-Man's shirt disappear.
Feast your eyes on a detailed Lego model of Castle Grayskull.
In the fall of 2005, Game Informer's editor-in-chief, Andy McNamara, entered my office and told me that he had been contacted by a movie company that wanted us to create a special Game Informer cover for use in an upcoming Adam Sandler film called Reign Over Me. He said it was a serious-toned Sandler movie that followed a character who lost his family on 9/11 and was trying to rebuild his life. He then said that the movie company requested Shadow of the Colossus to be the game featured on the magazine cover.
Issues of Game Informer are sometimes used as movie props in motion pictures. Here's the story behind one of them.
