I’ve enjoyed this season of Westworld and I’m looking forward to the next one in 2018 (the gap presumably needed to negotiate the rights to another four Radiohead songs) but one thing bothered me throughout the series...was “recreate the old west” really the best thing Arnold and Ford could think of?
Recently, Katsuhiro Harada, the producer and director of Tekken 7 said some very questionable comments. For example, when asked about if the swimwear costumes in the game will be in the western version of the game via Twitter, he responded, “ask your country’s SJWs” and then later adding “This message is not for…
The game industry has been growing for quite some time, but as we reach a more global audience, the rules surrounding the use of other cultures are becoming harder to suss out. Take for instance Overwatch. On the one hand, they are actively trying to reach out to a wide audience of ethnicities, races, and countries of…
Once upon a time Sony and Nintendo teamed up to develop a console that played video games via optical disc... you can either google the rest of that story or just take a look around at the current state of video games.
Welcome to the second of this clearly in no way regular series about fictional places. Last time we visited a world in the stars, this time we’re going somewhere a little closer to home.
Am I the only one weireded out that Link’s newest sidekick is Link? All this had me thinking, who are the strangest sidekicks to grace a Legend of Zelda?
Welcome to Tiny Utopias a (hopefully?) reoccurring series looking at interesting, intimate and often interactive, fictional places.
After this article about Missile Command and Centipede movies and the upcoming Assassin’s Creed, Warcraft, and Tomb Raider, it’s clear the hope for a decent movie based on a video game will never die.
There are so many geeky things going on right now, it’s all a self-respecting quasi-journalist can do to play catch-up!
Remember when I wrote up an article on the first area of the Bloodborne DLC, and indicated I’d be continuing to do that with the other two areas, back in November? Yeah. Good times. Anyway, it’s February now, here’s the follow up. Spoilers to follow!
Every year, I post a collection of thoughts on the year somewhere, but this is the first year in a while I haven’t had a good place to do that, like a blog I was running. So here it is, my favorite games of 2015.
Bloodborne’s first and only DLC pack is out, and it carries with it a ton of new bits of lore information. As a follow up to my Bloodborne - The Story and Bloodborne Stories - The Secret of Cainhurst articles, I’m writing articles exploring the storyline of The Old Hunters DLC. Major spoilers behind the break.
This weekend, EA DICE is running an open beta test for one of its newest titles — Star Wars: Battlefront. It’s a successor to a well loved pair of Star Wars games that focused on gunplay rather than being a Jedi knight. Here are my impressions of the beta, particularly the big Hoth battle.
Do you like My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic? Do you like Fighting Games? Do you like Skullgirls? Do you like animals in crazy fighting combos? If not.....Ehhh, just watch the video. If you do, GREAT!

Welcome again to the 1980s, an era of great political and cultural change and importantly for us, changes in the entertainment we played and watched. But does any of this media that people have great nostalgia for hold up to someone who wasn’t there? Last time we judged the animation, this time we judge the games.
Ever wondered what London was like before the Great fire?
Using the wonders of 3D game engines and historical records, including maps and written eyewitness accounts, students re-created Tudor London circa 1660.
On the surface, I doubt you could find two games more different than the atmospheric adventure game Journey, and the hardcore role-playing game Dark Souls. One is about a little guy in a scarf walking through a desert, and the other is a challenging game about conquering the odds to take down bosses. At the same time,…
