Xenosaga HD collection a brilliant idea

Xenosaga never got the respect it deserved. Sure, the JRPG series had its faults. The long cutscenes are the thing that spring to mind for me. Yet, if you think about it, those weren’t its fault either. The main problem was, it was a series of six games condensed into three. When developers have to more »

Resident Evil Revelations 2′s fast-paced, episodic content is a great idea

I… am excited. I’m an old-school Resident Evil mark, you see. So while I do appreciate the newer games (I had an absolute blast running through Resident Evil 6 with friends), the older style will always be my favorite. The first Resident Evil Revelations was a cool exercise in leaning back towards that era without more »

I’ll take Fem-Shep over male Shepard any day

I’m not a huge fan of labels, but I’ve deemed it important to clarify that I am straight. I’m in a committed relationship with a man. But I don’t have any problems saying that I can admit when a woman is attractive. This is no more evident than in my love for Fem-Shep from the more »

PAX 2014: Tales from the Borderlands might be Telltale Games’ best yet

It couldn’t have been more than 30 seconds into the playable demo when I realized Tales from the Borderlands might blow away all of Telltale Games’ previous adventure games. Yes, I said it. The introduction to the new episodic series at PAX Prime 2014 hit hard and fast with humor and action. It looks every bit more »

WayForward’s new TMNT game cool but lacking new ideas

Full disclosure: I’m a big fan of both WayForward as a game developer and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as a… big, shameless money-vomit capitalism franchise entity thingy. DuckTales Remastered was one of my favorite games last year and taking my son to see the 2014 TMNT movie was one of the most emotionally strenuous more »
