    First person shooter games can be victims of their own success, with franchise titles sticking close to formula and others hoping to mimic their good fortune. There's no question the formula is addicting, having earned my allegiance for several generations... More
  • What Does a 19-Year-Old Alien Look Like?

    4 1

    More
    The release of Alien: Isolation late last year fueled nostalgia for the sci-fi/horror franchise, and encouraged me to revisit a related game that is over 19 years old -- Alien Trilogy. The presentation suffers on a high-definition TV and the gameplay... More

    It's no surprise that there is a conspicuous dearth of reviews for new video game releases on last gen consoles. Still, it's a safe bet that most gamers have not made the leap to the new generation of hardware. That leaves word of mouth as the... More

    I've become so busy that it appeared last year's Electronic Entertainment Expo would be my swan song in terms of covering this industry. So it was with some relief that, on this last day of the 2014 expo, in its waning hours, I finally had an... More

    A peculiar thing happened on my way to the finale of The Last of Us, and is yet another example of the on and off debate about narrative and decision-making in video games. I'll avoid overt spoilers when discussing specific titles. At one point Joel's... More

    When you get to be my age, most things provoke a sense of deju vu. Take the current news about virtual reality. I've been excited for the technology since I first tried it out -- 15 years ago! I have a child in middle school now who wasn't even... More
