Replay – Earthworm Jim 3D
on November 13, 2015 at 08:00 PM
A critical and commercial success on the Genesis and SNES, the original Earthworm Jim seemed to usher in a series with years of longevity.

Where’s My Sequel? – L.A. Noire
on October 02, 2014 at 01:43 PM
Just because a game isn’t an aged classic doesn’t mean it doesn’t deserve a sequel. While a lot of our Where’s My Sequel features focus on titles from far earlier console generations, this one pines after the open-world detective game, L.A. Noire. What It Is: Built like an open...

Opinion – Younger Characters Are Making A Stronger Impact
on February 18, 2014 at 05:16 PM
Adolescence is a time of conflicting emotions. One minute life is carefree, and then growing up rears its ugly head, dealing hard lessons.

It's OK To Not Like Grand Theft Auto
on September 13, 2013 at 12:00 PM
Hello, my name is Mike, and I don't really enjoy Grand Theft Auto. I've tried. I promise that I've tried. I played all the way through GTA III. Sure, I had to use cheat codes because of the checkpoint problems, but I saw the end. I played through about half of Vice City, but after I realized...
Places: The Beautifully Corrupt City Of L.A. (Noire)
on June 07, 2013 at 04:45 PM
I anticipated L.A. Noire for well over a year before it came out. I read Game Informer’s March 2010 cover story several times through because I was so enamored with the breakthroughs in facial animation technology that would come along with this game. That, and the film noir genre is something...

on November 20, 2012 at 03:25 PM
Most gamers appreciate when a brand new installment releases in their favorite series. Despite complaints about “sequelitis,” getting too many entries is better than the alternative: getting too few. In Where’s My Sequel, we look at standalone games and franchises that deserve to continue...

Moments: The Marble Prank In Bully
on September 03, 2012 at 03:42 PM
Despite what self-righteous crusaders said prior to its release, Bully is not actually a game about bullying. However, it does allow players to pull pranks and make mischief, and one of the game's most memorable moments involves hilarious hijinks with marbles. Even though young Jimmy Hopkins has...
Moments: Figuring Out Liberty City In Grand Theft Auto III
on August 19, 2012 at 01:45 PM
I didn’t know anything about Grand Theft Auto the first time I saw Grand Theft Auto III. I walked in on a friend playing the game. My first thought was it didn’t look very good compared to other PlayStation 2 titles and the jump animation was ridiculous. My friend seemed excited about the...
