Alien Isolation egg replica wins SDCC 2014 for SEGA

I’ve been mourning all weekend that I was unable to attend San Diego Comic Con with all the cool people. But like an idiot, I have been following everything that I’m missing.

How to Fix the Valve Steam Machine controller

This week we got a look at a new revision to Valve’s Steam Machine controller. The addition of an analog stick stick is a step in the right direction, but Gabe and company are still getting it completely wrong. Valve has the right idea in general, but they keep completely missing the mark on the more »

Is the Tetsuya Nomura Batman Bahamut?

I think I’m going crazy. Is it just me, or does that Tetsuya Nomura Batman look a lot like Bahamut. You know, that legendary dragon that keeps showing up in Final Fantasy games as either a summon or an enemy. I mean, let’s look at this for a second. This is an image of the more »

D&D introduces LGBT identities in the core ruleset

Dungeons & Dragons has introduced new gender identities and sexual orientations into the Version 5 edition’s core ruleset. That’s great news for a game that is entirely about collaborative storytelling.

Skylanders Trap Team Dark Edition lets you capture Kaos

The $100 Skylanders Trap Team Dark Edition is starting to look like a better investment. Every time a new game is released, there’s always a special Dark Edition that includes different character variations and other special bonuses.

The Vigatar creator doesn’t understand how games work

Every once and a while, a crowdfunding endeavor comes up that makes you squint your eyes, furrow your brow, and furiously shake your head. “No, uh uh, nope, we don’t want or need this.” This, my friends, is how I feel about the Vigatar. (Which rhymes with minotaur, another thing we definitely can live without.) more »

Video game comics are better than the actual games

I’m going to admit, before we get started, that I can’t stand The Witcher as a franchise for various reasons. I started reading The Witcher as an obligation; it’s a video game comic and it’s part of my job. That’s when I discovered something strange.

Don’t Get into Staring Contests with Espurr

Anime Midwest 2014 was held in Rosemont, Illinois this past weekend, but that isn’t why this fourth of July weekend is notable. No, this three day weekend is now infamous for another reason.
