Let us praise a thing that matters a lot in video games: the quality of an in-game map. Zooming in, let us heap praise upon 2015’s most magnificent in-game map, the one that appeared in Assassin’s Creed Syndicate.
There have been many JRPGs released over the past five years, and many of them are great. Only one can be safely labeled the best.
Ah, the GameCube. It might be my favourite console of all time. The tiny discs, its cute little handle, the Wavebird...yeah, we had some good times together. But the best times we had were with these games in particular.
If you’d like to be scared shitless tonight, you’ve come to the right place.
You’re heading to the store to get an Xbox One right now, and need to know which games to get. Or you’re at work or in school, daydreaming about what you want to play next. Or maybe you’re suiting up for a battle in the console war, cinching on your armor and trying to remember which games will best help you make the…
You’re heading to the store to get a PS4 right now, and need to know which games to get. (Keep your eyes on the road, please!) Or you’re home, all set up, realizing you want more stuff to play. Or maybe you’re suiting up for a battle in the console war, applying your facepaint and trying to remember which games will…
Hail, ye Nintendo faithful! Loyal folk that you are, a Wii U rests beneath your TV. The console never quite hit its stride and has now been replaced by the Nintendo Switch, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still some good games for it.
You’ve got yourself an iPhone and you want to play some games on it. You might not want to just plunge into the App Store—it’s a jungle, full of deadly spiders, wild animals, and bad games. Here, let us help you.
Super Mario Maker is largely in the hands of reviewers, entertainers, and YouTubers right now—but even so, we’re already starting to see some fantastic user-created levels.
Loads of people have cosplayed as characters from Metal Gear over the years. But these guys are, I think, the very best of them.

Destiny’s story has been a punchline since the game came out. Story? What story? Destiny has a story? Good joke! And yeah, okay, yeah. Fair enough.
Since The Witcher 3 came out in May, developer CD Projekt Red has released 16 pieces of free post-release downloadable content, ranging from missions to outfits to gear. Some of that stuff was superb. Some was less superb. Let’s rank it all, worst to best.
PC gamers have got a pretty great thing going. Interesting, experimental indie games? Yup. Complex strategy simulations? Totally. The shiniest, prettiest versions of big-budget console games? They get a lot of those, too.
It’s been many years since the original 3DS launched. There’s a new version with better 3D, improved controls, and of course, a wealth of excellent games to play. There’s also a new 2DS XL that can do everything its 3D brother can do, aside from 3D.
There’s never been a better time to play games on PC. Not only does the PC get the lion’s share of the best new games, PC gamers can choose from a back catalogue that makes even the most stocked console library look paltry.
JRPGs are games designed to use a bunch of talking and combat as an excuse to blast killer soundtracks at you for hours and hours on end.
I was re-watching Patlabor 2 the other day, and there’s a scene in that movie that I just can’t get out of my head.
