on December 24, 2014 at 09:00 AM
This year was a contentious year for “end of” lists. Many of the editors on staff have their own opinion about what should have been game of the year, and few of them seem to agree. Personally, I’ve been telling everyone that my game of the year is Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, and...

on December 01, 2014 at 05:55 PM
A lot of popular video game series receive sequels, but only in rare instances do popular video game series earn a spin-off title. Like a random mutation, these series often contain elements of the original property, but are often different enough that they can't be included as part of the main series...

Moments – Figuring Out Mega Man Bosses Have Weaknesses
on February 09, 2014 at 06:53 PM
I was a young gamer when my brother and I first played Mega Man X. We tackled it without any help from the Internet or even word of mouth from friends who were playing the game at the same time. We worked on it for weeks, tag-teaming bosses and frantically writing down 12-digit passwords whenever they...

The Mega Man X series introduced a new robotic hero with a wider ability set while carrying over the core side-scrolling action from the NES titles.

My Top 10 Forgotten Favorites
on September 13, 2011 at 06:00 PM
When I applied for a job here, in the additional skills section of my resume I very subtly placed the special ability, “able to beat Mega Man X in under two hours.” They didn’t put me on the spot, but if they had, I probably would have gotten nervous and died a lot fighting Sigma. I...
