  • Blog Post: Wanted: System Sellers

    Last week I spoke with several friends who are console owners, but not the sort who wait in lines outside of retailers to buy new systems on day one. The talk inevitably shifted to my impressions of the game lineups for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. They aren't jumping at the prospect of laying... More
  • Blog Post: Battlefield 4 Naval Strike Impressions – Shore Lunch

    Five months after launch, DICE and EA are still struggling to get Battlefield 4 running smoothly , but that hasn't stopped them from releasing a steady stream of new maps. The latest expansion, Naval Strike, focuses explicitly on amphibious assaults featuring air, land, and sea vehicles. Three of... More
  • Blog Post: New Batman: Arkham Knight Screens Showcase Key Villain

    As part of our month-long coverage of Batman: Arkham Knight, we dug into the possible identities of the new villain character Arkham Knight . However, we weren't able to show a very good look at him. The previous imagery was shrouded in shadows. Now Warner Bros. has released several screens of the... More
  • Blog Post: Rocksteady Studios Comments On Batman: Arkham Origins

    Rocksteady Studios is the original developer and innovator of the Batman Arkham series. The team has created Arkham Asylum and Arkham City and is working on the upcoming Arkham Knight. Last year's Arkham Origins, developed by Warner Bros. Games Montreal, marked the first time the series was handled... More
  • Blog Post: Metal Gear Through The Years

    From its beginnings in 1987, Metal Gear has gone through a huge number of changes, but there are some aspects of the game that have remained constant throughout. Snake is always performing a stealth mission, and he always has back-up – even if they can't be there with him on the field. In this... More
  • Blog Post: Test Chamber – Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes

    The prologue chapter for Metal Gear Solid V is out today, and gamers can finally experience what we talked about in our cover story for themselves. While Ground Zeroes has been getting some mixed reviews ( ours included ), its polished stealth mechanics and high production values mean that it is still... More
  • Blog Post: New-Gen Console Features That Are Still MIA

    Post-launch updates have rolled out for the new systems, making them even more attractive. However, the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are still missing some promised amenities. The benefit of a connected console is that manufacturers can push updates with new features at any time, but that's also the... More
  • Blog Post: Test Chamber – Hohokum

    Developer Honeyslug's Hohokum doesn't yet have a solid release date yet, but from what we've played it seems quite far along. Andrew Reiner and I sat down to try out a new level full of all kinds of theme park rides, statues, and a giant key and shoe. Hohokum is due out sometime this year... More
  • Blog Post: Question Of The Month Reader Responses: Issue #252

    A few months ago, we asked readers which new-gen controller is better, Sony's DualShock 4, or the Xbox One controller. While both controllers received plenty of love, the DualShock 4 netted 60% of the vote. Here are some of the responses. (Dual)Shock And Awe: I bought the PS4 and Xbox One both on... More
  • Blog Post: Super League Football Impressions

    Soccer doesn't have as big of a draw in America as it does in other countries, but you don't have to be a fan of the sport to enjoy Zen Studios newest pinball table. Zen Studios has created countless tables for its Pinball FX and Zen Pinball series, and yet somehow the developer is still coming... More
  • Blog Post: Opinion: Hanging Onto Last Gen

    The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 have been out for months. If sales numbers are to be believed, you may have one of those systems nestled under your TV right now. Maybe you unplugged your Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 to make room, or perhaps it just seems like time for a ritualistic retirement. The launch... More
  • Blog Post: See Evolve Gameplay In Action

    Ever since our Evolve cover reveal , readers have been asking when they can see gameplay footage of the new multiplayer-focused shooter from the creators of Left 4 Dead. The wait is finally over: Our new video contains action of Evolve's first four hunters going head-to-head with the mighty Goliath... More
  • Blog Post: Analysis – Opening BF4 Balancing To Player Voting Could Backfire

    Given Battlefield 4's rough launch, DICE has spent the majority of its time since Oct 29 scrambling to stabilize its servers across five platforms. The urgency of this workload required an all hands on deck approach, which meant the typical post-release balancing that inevitably happens for every... More
  • Blog Post: Game Informer Interviews Twitch's Matthew DiPietro In Light Of 2013 Report

    Twitch today released a new report running down all of its growth statistics for 2013 ( view it now ).

  • Blog Post: Opinion – I Miss Backwards Compatibility, But I Probably Shouldn't

    Neither the Xbox One or the PlayStation 4 is backwards compatible. You can't take a disc from your library of PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 games, put it in your new console, and play. I wish I could, and I understand why I can't, but it does not make me want the feature any less. When the Xbox... More
  • Blog Post: Kim's Anticipated RPGs For 2014

    As many know, I love my role-playing games. Every year, I look at what's on the horizon, and I find there's more awaiting me than I initially realized. This year a variety of RPGs are scheduled; Final Fantasy is closing out Lightning’s story in Lightning Returns, the team behind Disgaea... More
  • Blog Post: Opinion – Tapping Into Potential

    I'm usually pretty careful of looking before I leap and gettin a new system. Problem is, I feel like more and more like I am not able to make the purchase I really want as we move into the future. I was recently thinking about getting a Vita. Oddly enough, this thought was mainly manufactured because... More
  • Blog Post: Opinion: Consoles Should Mimic Steam’s Library Feature

    The Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 have been out for eight years now. For those of us that purchased them at launch, digital libraries have grown with the advent of Games on Demand, PlayStation Plus, and more compelling digital-only titles. If you’re like me, after eight years (especially with the... More
  • Blog Post: Crafting The Black Lands: The Art Of Shadow Of Mordor

    In The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Mordor is a land so corrupt with evil that few even dare speak its name. The Dark Lord Sauron dwells behind its Black Gates, building up power to conquer Middle-earth. The Mordor we revealed in our cover story of Monolith Production’s Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor...

  • Blog Post: Which Exclusive Features Will The PS4 And Xbox One Share?

    Video game platform holders have a long history of borrowing the successes of one another. When the d-pad was introduced, it was quickly adopted for other competing consoles. The same can be said for the control stick, shoulder buttons, wireless controllers, etc. – the list goes on. When something... More
