My mom is an avid gamer. Although she spends most of her time these days playing those Facebook games that bombard you with notifications, she is a diehard Nintendo fan. In fact, my first interaction with video games was watching her play Link to the Past on “her“ Super Nintendo. But when I finally got old enough to claim ownership of the console originally bought...

[EDITORIAL] Evolve Is Not A Scam, It’s A Great Game That Deserves To Be Played

Evolve has been out for just over a month now, has received relatively good reviews, and – according to Take-Two president Karl Slatoff – has sold pretty well, too. He did not give specific numbers, though, and that has made people question whether or not as many people picked it up as the publisher may have hoped. In it’s first week, Evolve sold 300,000...

In this first entry of You Should Play This, I look at United Front Games and Square Enix London’s open world action-adventure: Sleeping Dogs.

Many of us have had the ‘pleasure’ of visiting the city of Rapture, the underwater setting of the first two BioShock games. We soaked in the bright neon lights and fought for survival against the deranged splicers. We took up arms against the Big Daddys and even saw ourselves become one. The one thing that made our adventures that little bit easier, not to mention...

  It’s been a while since Square-Enix has graced us with a new Final Fantasy game, well, sort of. Originally released in the east, Final Fantasy Type-0 is a HD port of the PSP game, Final Fantasy Agito XIII, which released in October of 2011. While very reminiscent of Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core, thanks to Hajime Tabata returning as director, Type-0 has something...

Magic is a fun thing. I’m not talking about the pulling a rabbit out of the hat type of magic. I’m talking about the raw, powerful, world-altering, destructive or healing magic we’ve come to expect from video games. Magic has been used in many games, going as far back as the original Dungeons and Dragons board game to the BioShock games to Bayonetta. But one series took...
