Knife In A Gunfight: The History And Evolution Of First-Person Melee Combat
on August 27, 2015 at 02:35 PM
It’s easy to see why guns get all the glory in video games. Unleashing the BFG on a group of Hell Knights never gets old, and sniping a headshot from across the map is always satisfying. Compared to their louder, flashier cousins, melee weapons were often a neglected portion of the first-person...
Everything We Know About Fallout 4 So Far
on July 29, 2015 at 04:30 PM
When it was revealed at this year’s E3, Fallout 4 instantly became one of the most anticipated games of 2015. Through various demonstrations and announcements, we’re gradually learning more and more about the post-apocalyptic, open-world RPG. This list is your one-stop shop for all of the...
What's The Magic Behind Fallout Shelter?
on July 05, 2015 at 04:15 PM
Bethesda's deep dive into Fallout 4 wasn't the only news about the franchise the company brought to E3. The team also made the surprise announcement of Fallout Shelter, a mobile vault-building simulation set in the post-apocalyptic universe. You can read our official review , but among the rest...
Opinion – RPG Fans Are The Real Winners Of E3 2015
on July 04, 2015 at 01:00 PM
I always like to take a few weeks away from any show to really start analyzing and putting it in perspective. I'm not one to usually name a "winner" of E3, since the fans always end up winning with a glut of new games. Even so, this year role-playing game fans really had a lot to cheer...
E3 Rivals – Fallout 4 Vs. Mad Max
on June 18, 2015 at 10:00 AM
While not exactly the same genre, two big games set in an open-world post-apocalyptic wasteland are releasing this year and we wanted to see how they stacked up against each other. Bethesda's Fallout 4 and Avalanche's Mad Max both have a big presence at E3 2015, with plenty of attention from...
Seen At E3 2015
on June 17, 2015 at 02:31 AM
It's E3 time again, which means a lot of structures are being erected in honor of the industry's most exciting video games, and we took pictures of them. We will surely become intimately familiar with these balloons when we get our hands on Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain later this year...
Test Chamber – The Elder Scrolls Online Tamriel Unlimited On PlayStation 4

Prepare to explore the world of Elder Scrolls again in a whole new way, with the open-world MMORPG shifting to a buy-to-play model as it enters the console MMO space. Grab every piece of cheese and iron sword that isn't locked down as you explore the world solo or with friends. The game's sensible...
E3 2015 Wishlist: What We Want In Fallout 4
on June 08, 2015 at 06:55 PM
It’s finally official; Fallout 4 is happening , and we’ll get a better look at it during Bethesda's E3 festivities in about a week. However, for any fan of the series, waiting for concrete details is difficult. Until we know more about the company's plans for the latest installment...
Here's What You Missed In The Fallout 4 Trailer
on June 03, 2015 at 01:35 PM
Bethesda teased that some kind of Fallout 4 news would be coming out this morning, and it didn't disappoint. Instead of a message along the lines of, "Fallout 4's coming, more details are coming at E3," the studio decided to let the game speak for itself. Bethesda released a three-minute...
Replay – Doom 3
on May 23, 2015 at 08:00 AM
Bethesda recently gave us a short look at id Software's upcoming Doom revival, which hasn't been shown for over a year . The little tease made us want to go back and take another look at the exceptional and ridiculously bloody Doom 3. Tim Turi, the two Jeffs, and I decided to look at the recently...
The Fallacy Of Free Mods - Paying Creators, Developers, And Valve Is The Right Move (And May Return)
on May 04, 2015 at 03:07 PM
The past two weeks have been tumultuous for PC gamers, as Valve announced (and quickly terminated) a mechanism that allowed modders to charge for their work. While the dust has mostly settled, there are important lessons from the aborted attempt and how we might better discuss this issue in the future...
Fight For The Top 50 2014 - Wolfenstein: The New Order
on November 27, 2014 at 10:00 AM
It is rare that I gush about a game, and even rarer that I continue to do so eight months after I’ve finished it. I’d be lying if I told you I always had faith that Wolfenstein: The New Order would be fighting for the top spot on my personal best of 2014 list. But here we are in November...
Requiem For A Seam: Remembering The 10 Best Game Instruction Manuals
on November 26, 2014 at 08:00 PM
Let me spin you a yarn. Times were, you’d open that brand-new cardboard (or plastic) box and there, nestled right next to your cartridge (or disc), would be a booklet. Yes, a booklet – paper pages stapled together that told you how to play the game (and sometimes more). Remember those? Now...
Facing My Fears: Lessons From The Evil Within
on October 27, 2014 at 03:25 PM
As you might recall, I don’t often play survival horror games for reasons I detailed in a recent story . That doesn’t mean I won’t try them, though. And with Andrew Reiner singing the praises of Shinji Mikami’s The Evil Within, I decided to give it a try. I’ve been streaming...
Test Chamber – The First Hour Of The Evil Within
on October 13, 2014 at 11:04 PM
The next chapter of survival horror from Shinji Mikami has arrived. You should probably go check out our review here , but you can also watch Daniel Tack, Andrew Reiner, and Wade Wojcik play through a full hour in this episode of Test Chamber! There are plenty of horrible plays and delicious bloopers...
Dissecting The Horror Of The Evil Within's New Gameplay

The 1000-Year-Old Gamer: A Look At Video Game Age Gates
on July 11, 2014 at 04:44 PM
Age gates are the Internet's half-hearted attempt at preventing minors from seeing potentially objectionable material. Like most of you, my birthday is on January 1st, but I have found a good deal of variety in just how far back various game companies' website go in available birth year. Asking...
Exploring Freedom In The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
on July 04, 2014 at 12:00 PM
As we continue our journey exploring freedom in games , I want to look back at a game that had a significant impact on my free time: The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. The Elder Scrolls is a series that comes to a lot of gamers' minds when they think about games where they've truly felt free to...
The Hidden Humanity Of Wolfenstein: The New Order
on May 28, 2014 at 05:40 PM
When I first previewed Wolfenstein: The New Order in a small, press-only gathering earlier this year, I came away surprised. The gunplay, alternate history, and even the traditional method of gathering ammunition with a button press all gelled nicely. What I wasn’t prepared for was the humanity...
Test Chamber – Wolfenstein: The New Order
on May 20, 2014 at 02:52 PM
Wolfenstein: The New Order is out now for just about every modern console, and we posted our mostly positive review earlier today. It does a great job of delivering the Nazi-slaughter that B.J. Blazkowicz has been dealing out for decades, and it's worth checking out for fans of the series or FPS...
