Minecraft Story Mode is certainly something

I like to believe I trust Telltale Games. The developer clearly knows what it’s doing, with hits like The Walking Dead, Sam & Max, Fables, and, most recently, Game of Thrones. Still, their latest Minecraft Story Mode announcement is giving me pause. Because this is Minecraft, a game that’s essentially virtual legos, and one wonders more »

Bet you never thought you’d see Steins;Gate on PS3, Vita

I never in a million years would have expected this announcement, but I guess this is the way games are going. Steins;Gate, one of the most famous visual novels of our time, is coming to the PS3 and Vita. By which I don’t mean Japan’s getting it. No, that’s something that of course would happen. more »

I hate Dragon Age Inquisition’s stupid install rule

Dragon Age is one of those series that I always wanted to play, but never had the time or money to allocate toward it. However, I picked up Dragon Age Inquisition during the Amazon Cyber Monday sale, because I’ve heard so many good things about it. I waited patiently for it to come in the more »

$30 Assassin’s Creed Unity at Amazon

This is going to hurt. There’s a ridiculous deal on Assassin’s Creed Unity on Amazon today. It’s too good. Like, at this price, you could forgive Ubisoft for all of the launch issues this game had. I’m not kidding. Are you ready to hear how much it’ll cost you? If you already purchased the game more »

Be cautiously optimistic about Starbound Winter Update

Starbound broke my heart. I know, it was Early Access and things happen, but there were certain expectations. They weren’t met, and we went months without official updates. It wasn’t until December that we finally heard word about progress and started seeing new, unstable releases. Now, there’s a Starbound Winter Update trailer of what should more »

Skyrim overshadows Dragon Age Origins

I decided to make a point of playing at least a little of Dragon Age Origins recently. I was still waiting for my copy of Dragon Age Inquisition to come in the mail (since the mail is notoriously slow this time of year), and I wanted to take the time to play some of the first more »

2014 Gaming Memories: Finding my nemesis in Shadow of Mordor

Another year full of incredible gaming has almost passed us by. Despite some heartbreaking delays on big games, there were a lot of great moments to be had. I thought I’d share some of mine, and encourage our readers to do the same. For my first, I’d like to talk about a Game of the more »
