  • Hitman: Absolution Is On Target, Even If I'm Not

    More
    I'm likely the last person you'd expect to write about Hitman: Absolution as I'm an abysmal assassin. My idea of stealth is to restrain my instinct to blast anything that moves. But for that reason I've always been a fan of this series... More
  • My Top 10 Gaming Experiences of 2012

    It's always interesting to reflect on the past 12 months this time of year. What stood out for me in compiling my second annual list is how my experiences with the Game Informer online community and industry in general stood out in 2012. Indeed, I... More
  • Horsing Around in Assassin's Creed 3

    I can't help but ruin most games by puttering about willfully ignorant of guidelines, control configuration or mission objectives. Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed 3 is no exception. The joy of discovery is what motivates me, especially in open... More
  • A Far Cry From Your Typical FPS

    When pirates vie with carnivores for an island chain's resources and people, a simple travel advisory might be in order to prevent tourists from becoming prey. But then gamers wouldn't have a pretense for exploring all the fun a game like Far... More
  • Grand Theft Auto: Evolution

    More
    The Grand Theft Auto franchise is many things to many people, but the one thing most can agree on is that Rockstar Games' gangland action titles are loud, bloody and audacious video games that have defined the medium and redefined entertainment. The... More
  • Beyond Compare: Borderlands 2, Black & Project: Snowblind

    More
    The Borderlands series is known for the huge variety of guns and gunplay options available to fans of Gearbox Software's creation. Considering the breadth of the shooter genre, it's telling how such an emphasis is relatively rare. In fact, it... More

    The Extra Life gaming marathon was this past Saturday and here I'll chronicle how my virtual day was spent. But first, Extra Life has announced that participants' pages will be kept up until mid-December so there's still time to contribute... More
  • In Dishonored, Heads Will Roll. And Fly, and Fall, and ...

    More
    I began playing Dishonored yesterday and spent an hour and a half in game, but what consumed most of my time was not what you might expect. Unless, that is, you know me pretty well, and my penchant for sometimes macabre pursuits (as in, here ). But to... More
  • Borderlands 2: Pandora Revisited

    11 1

    The original Borderlands was a much beloved first person shooter/role playing game hybrid. I enjoyed it, but was not as enamored as many others were. A fun co-op game, the decent solo experience nonetheless did not compel me to stick with it. So it was with some ambivalence that I approached the E3 demo for Gearbox Software's sequel. More

    It's difficult to play a video game without being reminded of another title one has played before. Whether they share a genre, theme, gameplay, presentation or other element, they might draw inspiration from the same sources or inspire us in similar... More
  • Metal Gear Solid: Evolution

    In this second installment of my new Evolution series, I tried my hand at three Metal Gear Solid titles spanning three generations of video game consoles. And as expected, I proved completely inept at stealth gameplay. Still, it's testament to the... More
