  • Blog Post: Replay – King's Field

    Today, Japanese developer From Software is famous for starting a masochistic craze with the "Souls" series of games. But before Demon's Souls, Dark Souls, and Bloodborne there was King's Field. This early From Software title planted the sadistic game design roots the developer would... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Super Castlevania IV (Guest: Kumail Nanjiani)

  • Blog Post: Replay – 007: From Russia With Love

    In the video game world, the name "James Bond" usually leads to a discussion about GoldenEye. People rarely talk about Electronic Arts' time with Ian Fleming's famed secret agent, which is surprising since that's where most of his video game history lies. Under Electronic Arts'... More

    When your secret Antarctic military base is overrun by a terrifying parasitic infection, there's only one reasonable course of action: Call Dennis and Roger.

  • Blog Post: Replay – Manhunt

    Rockstar's Manhunt courted controversy with its ultraviolent content and snuff-film aesthetic.

  • Blog Post: Replay – Mario Party 2

    One of the things that distinguishes Mario Parties from other celebrations is that Mario Parties do not stop.

  • Blog Post: Replay – Blood Omen 2

    The Legacy of Kain series has been dormant for quite some time, but it had its share of fans back in the PlayStation 2 era.

  • Blog Post: Replay – Batman: Vengeance

    Batman has a rich cartoon legacy. Back in 2001, Ubisoft took advantage of The New Batman Adventures' art style and popularity to create a mediocre superhero game with decent production values.
