When Bonnie Ross, Studio Head of 343 Industries, took the stage at E3 this past June, global emotions were mixed. Were fans of the Halo series finally going to hear about the reveal for the inevitable Halo 2 Anniversary? Were we to expect Halo 5: Guardians to be discussed? Most importantly, were the rumors of […]
Bravo to the vigilant and patient gamers out there. Your unwaveringness has saved you hundreds of dollars as you continue to bask in the glory of the PS3 and Xbox 360, two consoles still at the top of their game.
It’s almost Halloween, and you know what that means: It’s time for everyone to talk about the scariest things in gaming. We would be remiss not to submit ourselves to the terror of differing opinions on the internet, so we’ve cooked up a list of five of the scariest enemies in video games.
The Wii U was obviously a misfire. Nintendo bungled virtually everything about its release: They timed the launch poorly, alienated fans, alienated third parties, named it horribly, and utterly failed to sell consumers on the game pad. The only way it could have gone worse is if Microsoft had performed another on stage abortion for […]
Can you blame us for dishing out a Fanatical Five about one of the biggest, prettiest and hugely anticipated title that Insomniac Games is releasing at this month’s end? Sunset Overdrive has been such a joy to explore and thrilling to learn about for the last few months, so us writers and editors at The […]

Kind of strange isn’t it? We’re barely a year into these new consoles and yet there are already a couple of games that have strayed from the spotlight.
What a delightful little gem Life is Strange turned out to be. It’s a game of choices and consequences much in the same vein as Heavy Rain or Beyond Two Souls. We were given a brief 30 minute off-hands demo presentation of Life is Strange and were left rather impressed.
Final Fantasy Type-0 originally came out as PSP title back in 2011 and ever since then, fans of the series have been clamoring for a western release. It’s finally going to happen as Final Fantasy Type-0 will come back in full HD worldwide in 2015, but will it be worth the wait?
Long time Sonic fans know what the Sonic Cycle is, a three step waltz of announcement, anticipation, and disappointment repeated ad nauseam. Aside from Sonic Colors and the first Sonic Rush if you consider handhelds, you could only call Sonic games mediocre at very best, having to go back to the Sonic Adventure titles to […]
If nothing else, 2014 should be remembered as the year of undue hype.
