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.

It was late at night at a local meeting place with trusted friends that I got the news about the tragic passing of Nintendo's CEO, Satoru Iwata. Throughout the rest of the night I wanted it to be a mishap, an unfounded rumor, that the man was still alive and well. But the night passed, I woke up, and the industry and the community as a whole were all united in sorrow at his death at the hand of hi... more.

In case you aren't aware, the most recent big budget AAA release was Batman: Arkham Knight, Rocksteady's finale to their run on the Batman games. Things have come a long way since then, for both Rocksteady and Warner Bros. Interactive, both in terms of talent and business practices. It's been quite a journey, and as a fan of the World's Greatest Detective, I have nothing but the highest respect fo... more.

Editor's Note: This review was written by freelancer, Ben Carlander. Thank you for your submission! Over the course of nearly 30 years, the video game industry repeatedly reaffirmed the notion that games about superheroes just aren’t very good; second only to movie tie-ins in terms of poor reputation. Superhero video games stumbled through generations of gaming consoles, rarely hitting the mark... more.

So E3 has come and gone and there were quite a number of interesting things that came out of it. Mostly good, a few bad, and even one apparently controversial, but the thing about the conference is the news and content doesn't just stop at the big flashy shows and announcements. Take for example, Nintendo's Nindies@Home initiative. While major publishers showed off the more modest projects made b... more.

At this year’s E3, Phil Spencer walked out on stage and announced to the world ‘Backwards compatibility’ for the Xbox One. Sure, the conference crowd shortly cheered and for a brief moment, the internet went nuts, which seems to be the trend with everything announced by Microsoft; however, the general internet quickly swapped their concerns to just how is Microsoft going to screw us this tim... more.

Of course, no E3 conference is complete without talking about Nintendo, one of the oldest companies still making video games and has some of the most iconic intellectual properties in the industry. Just like last year, Nintendo didn't have a large, lavish, live show with a bunch of scripted gameplay slices and speeches, but instead opted for a small, humble Digital Event showcase to unveil their l... more.
