What does it mean to be human? Introspective science-fiction stories has always found different ways to approach this very potent idea, especially as it becomes more potent as time goes on. The Mass Effect series had the fate of a sentient machine race showing human quality. Deus Ex philosophically ponders the definition of being human while technology continues to augment and improve the average ... more.

Longstanding readers will know that I absolutely adored Shovel Knight, Yacht Club Games' first humble throwback to the Golden Age Platformer. The humble adventure premiered on the Wii U last year and went on to visit every other major console and handheld, complete with their own special modes and bonus levels. Shovel Knight has gone on to show up in other indie games, the studio is in the process... more.

By the time you read this review, Super Mario Bros. will have celebrated its 30th Anniversary. Anyone can see a screenshot of any game in the series and instantly recognize the power-ups, the enemies, and the characters. It can not be understated just how ubiquitous and amazing the Mario series has been, all thanks to top-notch level design, elegance in appearance and gameplay, and one simple goal... more.

Hideo Kojima has been behind Metal Gear Solid for seventeen years. Let that number sink in. For almost two decades he and his team, Kojima Productions, have been working on a series that dates back to the PS1, all of which have been critically hailed as classics. True, the series now has a reputation for several questionable habits like overly long cutscenes, but its impact on the industry cannot ... more.

Interactive movies are kind of crap. They were novel at first with Fahrenheit (or Indigo Prophecy in my neck of the woods), and despite some pretty big flaws Heavy Rain had some effective moments. Quick-Time Events make up most of your action sequences, put in some dialogue options so the player feels like they're contributing to the plot, and then spend the rest of your budget on really expensive... more.

The term “Definitive Edition” is really starting to become questionable. Things started off well with the recent Tomb Raider, then there was the decent, if a bit glitchy, port of Sleeping Dogs. Then there was the pretty terrible Prototype remaster, which somehow runs worse on new hardware. Now we have Dishonored, one of my favorite games of 2012, remastered for modern consoles... and it's kind... more.

We all know Gears, if you don’t then chances are you’ve somehow followed a few wrong links and I’d like to inform you that you are indeed on a gaming site now. Don’t worry though, this might interest you just give me a moment. Back when the Xbox 360 was the go to console Epic games took a chance, a third person cover shooter that in the words of Cliffy B was on paper destined to fail. Clea... more.

Mike Bithell is quickly becoming one of my favorite indie developers in recent memory. His first game, the abstract puzzle-platformer Thomas Was Alone, was a very tightly designed and very well-written game about several AI's gaining sentience and quickly learning about friendship whom just so happened to be represented by simple squares and rectangles. It was modestly created, launched very well ... more.

The long-awaited casino DLC for Grand Theft Auto 5 (GTA 5) doesn't seem to be any closer to reality, but a recent YouTube Q&A with gaming expert "DomisLive" revealed that many in the industry are craving the new content. Rumours regarding a possible casino add on for GTA 5 originally hit the airwaves back in 2014 courtesy of Twitter user, "funmw2”. Although the tweet has since been deleted, ... more.

Chances are by this point you are fully on board with the antics of Max Caulfield in the world of Life is Strange. It's a safe bet because Dark Room finally begins to pay off a lot of its many plot threads and finally crystalizes all of the series' strengths into some very effective moments. As for how it holds together as a penultimate installment is another story. Dark Room opens up with Max wa... more.

It’s hard to believe that the God of War series is now a decade old – it has been a tremendously successful franchise for Sony, with each numbered game of the series marking a huge milestone for the company. God of War III was arguably the most spectacular of them all, with the title serving as both the series’ debut on PS3 and the swansong of the main series. We remember it fondly as a benc... more.

Godzilla opens up with the titular King of the Monsters re-enacting his iconic first rampage through the city of Tokyo, with a news report blaring, and even a black-and-white color scheme. It was in this brief moment that Namco Bandai delivered on making you feel like that atomic lizard. Then control was given over to me and my enthusiasm plummeted as fast as a nuclear bomb drop. An hour later, th... more.

Jurassic Park was a genuine cultural phenomenon back in the early 1990s, dominating the public consciousness. It had heart, amazing visual effects, a coherent plot and perhaps best of all, a T-Rex ate a man off a toilet. That was a spectacle that I don’t think has ever really been equalled, even 21 years later. Naturally, there was a lot of anticipation around this year’s sequel Jurassic Worl... more.

Editors Note: This review was written by guest writer Kyle Dunn First off let me begin by saying I have played a massive amount of games in my youth and now in adulthood. None have deserved the title as the cutest game quite like this one. I didn’t play much of Nintendo’s first foray into a woollen world in Kirby’s Epic Yarn. But of what I did play, I can say that Yoshi’s Woolly World doe... more.
