New Vegas almost beat Fallout 4 to player romance

As we learned in "No fucking the robot," Fallout 4 will have romance options for the human percentage of its 12 companion characters. Obsidian almost beat Bethesda to the punch in 2010. Fallout: New Vegas lead designer Josh Sawyer told...Show More Summary

Watch where you drop your supplies in Metal Gear Solid V

That horse, post clonking, is how I feel all the time. This mistake (or, let's be real, I'm sure this was intentional) is still better than when I tried to be cheeky and knock out an enemy like this, only to have him casually walk away at the last second. Show More Summary

Meddle in the affairs of others, control their minds in Randall

Clerks has a scene where Randal Graves, an irresponsible and indifferent video store employee, tells a customer that he finds it best to stay out of other people's affairs. The laissez-faire approach isn't a noble attempt to keep from...Show More Summary

Tearaway Unfolded faithfully breaks the DualShock 4th wall

Tearaway was the zenith of the PlayStation Vita. While many find games have hit the platform since, few have been exclusive and original, and none used every inch of the Vita's additional capabilities to as good effect. That rare 10Show More Summary

Review: Mad Max

I grew up with Mad Max. It was one of the first R-rated film series I viewed as a child, and naturally, I saw Fury Road, and enjoyed it like everyone else on the planet. My infatuation with the films is mostly due to George Miller'sShow More Summary

Kona is a hauntingly beautiful survival adventure

It's not often we see a title that blends one of the many hallmarks of the adventure genre, a focus on a rich and evocative setting, with the tense and resource-focused gameplay of survival games. But that's just what the Quebec-based developer Parabole has sought out to do. Show More Summary

Review: Super Mario Maker

Ever since I was five years old, I've been drawing my own Mario levels on graph paper. It's a pretty common story, because when I look at a series to give me a platforming baseline, it's usually Mario. Nintendo didn't just create a series...Show More Summary

Japanese voiceovers coming to 3DS version of Azure Striker Gunvolt

Azure Striker Gunvolt was just released on the PC last week, with numerous extras, most notably the inclusion of Japanese voiceover work. When initially asked whether or not this feature would end up on 3DS eventually, I was told "unfortunately,...Show More Summary

The UK Advertising Standards Agency isn't happy with Moshi Monsters or Bin Weevils

Moshi Monsters is pretty popular with kids here in the UK. It’s been around for a few years now, and’s managed to gain toys and shows alongside the website and games. Bin Weevils has been around for a bit longer, but has a similar concept...Show More Summary

Showering with my dad was a surreal, terrifying experience

Yesterday, I got an early Steam code for a game called Shower With Your Dad Simulator 2015. I instantly took Mad Max and Metal Gear Solid V, threw them out the window and thought no more of them. Showering with my dad was clearly what...Show More Summary

Star Wars Battlefront won't have a server browser

DICE have a history of controversy when it comes to server browsers in their games. Before release, there was a lot of criticism of Battlelog in Battlefield 3, which saw the server list removed from the game and shoved into your web browser instead. After all the complaints and controversy, it worked alright. Show More Summary

Shutshimi: Seriously Swole coming soon to Wii U

Just last week, we were graced with the release of Shutshimi: Seriously Swole on PC, PS4 and Vita.

Check out Japanator's review of a cool game art book

Hey there! It's not all "manga this, anime that" over at Japanator. We get cool game stuff, too, and one such thing is Game Art, an appropriately-titled book about the art of videogames and the creators of said art. Anthony RedgraveShow More Summary

LittleBigPlanet gets Metal Gear Solid V DLC, fat Ocelot is great

Remember LittleBigPlanet? Sony had a hit on its hands, and then it didn't, between a lackluster Vita game, a weak kart racer, and a third entry abandoned by the original creator for newer, more interesting ideas (Tearaway!). Not a bad run, though. Show More Summary

Banner Saga 2 is 'basically the same' as the first

Game previews are an inherently strange part of this business. You wouldn't read a few pages from an unfinished book and render judgement about the final product. Likewise, we don't often have the opportunity to sample a song's chorus...Show More Summary
