The Virtuix Omni allows people to walk naturally in virtual reality, more »

Xenoblade on Nintendo’s New 3DS is a good first step

There’s a lot of yelling going on about Nintendo’s new hardware. The upgraded tech is cool, but people are wary of the platform getting a third remodel. Like the DSi, the 3DS is not only changing in look, but also gaining entirely new features. Unlike the DSi, the new features are almost shockingly substantial, and more »

It is really hard to describe my very short experience with The Order: 1886. I hoped to be wowed by what I expect will be the PlayStation 4 equivalent to Gears of War. I’m a big fan of third-person cover-based shooters. The Order: 1886 left me a little perplexed. I gain control of Sir Galahad and I’m immediately beset more »

PAX 2014: Bloodborne is the fast-paced Souls game you want

  I didn’t even realize I wanted Bloodborne. I like the Dark Souls series but they’re the type of game that I have to be in the right frame of mind to play. Each time I attempted both Dark Souls games, I gave up too soon. I eventually came back to the first one about a year more »

Buy the 3DS and Wii U Super Smash Bros, get music!

I don’t have a Wii U (it’s hard getting electricity out here in my mystical glade, and fairy dust only powers things for so long), but if I did, Super Smash Bros would be on my to-buy list. It’s definitely on my to-buy list for my 3DS. This is because Nintendo has always delivered a more »

Doctor Who visiting Minecraft on Xbox 360s

That’s right! The Xbox 360 version of Minecraft is soon to feature some awesome Doctor Who content. It warms my heart to see Doctor Who invade yet another platform that I just so happily happen to own.
