    6 1

    "The report of my death was an exaggeration," Mark Twain once famously quipped. If single-player games could speak, one would expect a similar remark. The long-prophesied demise of this once dominant gaming mode most often has been attributed... More

    5 2

    Imagine a David Lynch anime film of a Tom Clancy script based on a Philip K. Dick adaptation of Wagner's Gotterdammerung and you begin to understand the Metal Gear franchise. I know, I had you at Lynch. In the case of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance... More

    BioShock Infinite is around the corner, but if you need a familiar dystopian fantasy in the meantime, visit the doomed underwater setting of Eden in G5 Entertainment's Abyss: The Wraiths of Eden. At your peril! Mmmwwwhahahaha ... ha ... ha .... Alright... More
  • Hitman: Absolution Is On Target, Even If I'm Not


    I'm likely the last person you'd expect to write about Hitman: Absolution as I'm an abysmal assassin. My idea of stealth is to restrain my instinct to blast anything that moves. But for that reason I've always been a fan of this series... More
  • My Top 10 Gaming Experiences of 2012


    It's always interesting to reflect on the past 12 months this time of year. What stood out for me in compiling my second annual list is how my experiences with the Game Informer online community and industry in general stood out in 2012. Indeed, I... More
  • Horsing Around in Assassin's Creed 3


    I can't help but ruin most games by puttering about willfully ignorant of guidelines, control configuration or mission objectives. Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed 3 is no exception. The joy of discovery is what motivates me, especially in open... More

    7 1

    When pirates vie with carnivores for an island chain's resources and people, a simple travel advisory might be in order to prevent tourists from becoming prey. But then gamers wouldn't have a pretense for exploring all the fun a game like Far... More
  • Grand Theft Auto: Evolution

    The Grand Theft Auto franchise is many things to many people, but the one thing most can agree on is that Rockstar Games' gangland action titles are loud, bloody and audacious video games that have defined the medium and redefined entertainment. The... More
  • Beyond Compare: Borderlands 2, Black & Project: Snowblind

    3 1

    The Borderlands series is known for the huge variety of guns and gunplay options available to fans of Gearbox Software's creation. Considering the breadth of the shooter genre, it's telling how such an emphasis is relatively rare. In fact, it... More
  • Extra Life: Dishonored, Borderlands 2 & More


    The Extra Life gaming marathon was this past Saturday and here I'll chronicle how my virtual day was spent. But first, Extra Life has announced that participants' pages will be kept up until mid-December so there's still time to contribute... More
