  • Blog Post: Moments: “White Phosphorus” In Spec Ops: The Line

    Spec Ops: The Line is a game that routinely takes your expectations and blasts them to pieces. A simple and straightforward military shooter on the outside, the game’s exterior is hiding a spot-on critique of military shooters and what it means to be a “hero” in a violent scenario where... More
  • Blog Post: The Seven Strangest Moments From Nintendo’s Tomodachi Life Presentation

    Nintendo is no stranger to quirkiness. Its most popular character and brand exists in a world of super-power granting mushrooms and green sewage pipes that allow for quick transportation. Games like Rhythm Heaven and WarioWare offer some of the strangest video game experiences ever created (see Game... More
  • Blog Post: Moments: Learning The Origami Killer’s Identity In Heavy Rain

    Warning: this article contains major spoilers for Heavy Rain. Some of the moment-to-moment interactions and voice acting in Heavy Rain are iffy – if not painful – but I still find the overall story and mystery intriguing. For me, a defining moment in Heavy Rain is finally learning the Origami... More
  • Blog Post: Moments: Playing As A Little Sister In BioShock 2

    For many fans, BioShock 2’s story didn’t live up to the legacy of the original BioShock. While I agree that the original BioShock is the better game, I still enjoyed BioShock 2 – and believe it has moments of brilliance scattered throughout. Playing as a Little Sister is a high point... More
  • Blog Post: Moments – The Bridge Scene In Ico

    Ico begins with a young boy (presumably named Ico; the game never says it explicitly) being exiled into a castle for reasons that are never explained. The boy finds a pale, ethereal-looking girl named Yorda locked in a cage, again, for unexplained reasons. You free the girl and try to escape together... More
  • Blog Post: Moments: An Epic Bounty Chase In Red Dead Redemption

    There’s a set period of time when an open-world game has a sense of wonder. Those beginning hours of discovery fill the mind with possibilities of what kind of shenanigans can be had in each new area that is introduced. Usually, new locations are presented in a structured or regimented way; missions... More
  • Blog Post: Moments: Losing My Head In Resident Evil 4

    Call me a wuss, but I was terrified by Resident Evil 4 . At the time of the game’s release I hadn’t played the past Resident Evil games. I never played Silent Hill, Fatal Frame, or any other game that could be called remotely scary. As a result, I spent the first 30 minutes of RE 4 walking... More
  • Blog Post: Moments: Stepping Into Outland

    Standing on the safe side of the dark portal, I prepare myself for Outland. World of Warcraft’s first expansion, The Burning Crusade, offers flying mounts, player-versus-player arenas, and an unknown world to explore. I hear my guildmates screaming through my speakers, calling me to the battle... More
  • Blog Post: Moments – Blowing Up The Eiffel Tower In Twisted Metal 2

    SingleTrac’s Twisted Metal 2 is one of my favorite games of all time, and each level is home to tons of great junior high memories. As many times as I’ve blown the clothes off the Statue of Liberty, destroyed the Hollywood sign, or hid in windmills in Holland, there is one area and moment... More
  • Blog Post: Moments – The Fire Ritual In Tomb Raider (2013)

    Anyone who’s played a Tomb Raider game knows that Lara Croft is a woman of extraordinary perseverance. Whether she’s scaling obstacles, executing physical feats, or combating deadly creatures, Lara persists. This strength of character is put to the test like never before in the 2013 series... More
  • Blog Post: Moments: The Wedding Mission in Sleeping Dogs

    In Sleeping Dogs, undercover cop Wei Shen infiltrates the Sun On Yee gang in Hong Kong, working his way up a local faction called the Water Street Gang. He eventually gains the trust of the faction’s leader, Winston Chu. But as Wei gets closer to the leadership, he risks identifying too much with... More
  • Blog Post: Moments: Seeing God of War For the First Time

    I'm sure there were other games besides God of War shown at Sony's Santa Monica Gamer's Day in 2004. I should know; I was there. But I couldn't tell you if I tried. That was the day that Dave Jaffe unleashed Kratos on the world, and I still remember the impact it had on me. "Gamer's... More
  • Blog Post: Moments: Super Metroid's Hyper Beam

    Samus is one of the most powerful bounty hunters in the galaxy, so we don't often see her facing opponents she can't handle. In Super Metroid, the fight against Mother Brain brings Samus to the brink of destruction -- but she is rescued by an unlikely ally and given the weapon she needs to survive... More
  • Blog Post: Moments: The Purification Of The Dark Brotherhood In Oblivion

    The guild system in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion feels unreal. You can be the leader of the Fighters Guild, a protective organization for good, and a vile, high-ranking Dark Brotherhood assassin at the same time. Two morally opposed groups, headed by the same person. For a while, Oblivion lets you... More
  • Blog Post: Moments: Letting Him Live In Day Z

    Day Z is like The Walking Dead without the promise of splendor. Telltale’s zombie adventure game is powerful and well written. Its choices mattered. Its characters were loved, hated, sacrificed, betrayed, and shunned because those are things we do as human beings, to human beings. And while I never... More
  • Blog Post: Moments: Final Fantasy Tactics’ Boss Battle Against Wiegraf

    Getting decimated in a boss battle dozens of hours into a video game isn’t very fun. That’s exactly what happens in Final Fantasy Tactics when the player comes face to face with Wiegraf Folles. Wiegraf becomes a revolutionary after he isn’t paid for fighting in a war preceding the game... More
  • Blog Post: Moments: The Dark Side Of Infamous 2

    I have only earned platinum trophies in two PlayStation 3 games. Infamous and Infamous 2 did something for me of which few games are capable: they inspired an immediate, second play through. When I played both of Sucker Punch's open world superhero titles, my first time through was as a hero. My... More
  • Blog Post: Moments: Final Fantasy VI's Coin Flip

    When we're young, nothing is more important than our pride. We want to do everything ourselves, and carve our own way in the world. However, with adulthood comes understanding that our previous triumphs only could have occurred with the invisible hands of those that we love. This rings true with... More
  • Blog Post: Moments: Seeing Tony Hawk For The First Time

    Tony Hawk's Pro Skater is remembered as a classic, but it wasn't always so. Back in 1999, it was an unknown game from an unheralded PlayStation developer in a genre that many thought could never be successful. I still recall the first time I saw it. The events of my career at Game Informer have... More
  • Blog Post: Moments: Meeting Andrew Ryan

    BioShock Infinite comes out in a matter of days, which means that now is the perfect time reminisce about one of the encounters that established the original BioShock as a legendary game. Warning, spoilers follow (for the original…not Infinite). From your arrival in Rapture, Andrew Ryan is central... More
