Hohokum Review

Hohokum review: Eye for an eye

Hohokum review: Eye for an eye

I can’t figure out how best to describe Hohokum. Interactive scenery would do developer Honeyslug an injustice. Movable soundscapes might be more accurate. Whatever Hohokum is, it’s what it isn’t that makes it so special. It’s not a puzzle game, it’s not an adventure game and it’s not a platformer, but it has elements of all three. Hohokum is the latest in a lineage of downloadable PlayStation exclusives that redefine gaming in small but meaningful ways. More →

Worst Parents Ever World Of Warcraft Addiction

World of Warcraft addiction lands couple in jail after kids are found locked in a mobile home

World of Warcraft addiction lands couple in jail after kids are found locked in a mobile home

Gaming addiction can be just as dangerous as any other type of addiction — and not only to the addicted, but to their loved ones as well. We saw one couple go so far as to sell their children to buy in-app purchases and now another couple has gone off the deep end as well. According to a press release from the Orange Country District Attorney, Lester Louis Huffmire and his wife Petra Huffmire were convicted after police discovered they had been keeping the two children they were responsible for locked in a mobile home without appropriate provisions for three years while they played World of Warcraft. The description of the trailer sounds like something out of a horror movie. More →

Killzone Shadow Fall Intercept review: The thinking man’s horde mode

By on August 8, 2014 at 12:00 PM.

I was disappointed in Killzone Shadow Fall. There’s no two ways about it — the PS4 launch title felt unfinished, unbalanced and yet somehow still left me wanting more. If it had been a more complete package, some of its flaws might have been forgivable, which is why the new Intercept co-op DLC is right up my alley. More →

EA’s awesome Xbox One subscription service just keeps getting better

EA shocked everyone last week with the introduction of EA Access, a subscription service for Xbox One that offers discounts on EA games, early access to unreleased titles and a selection of free games for members. It all seemed to good to be true, especially coming from the company that unleashed the nightmarish Dungeon Keeper and the similarly awful Sim City relaunch onto the world, but as EA shares more details about the new service, it just keeps sounding better.

Check out these ridiculous, recently uncovered Nintendo facts, including Yoshi’s ‘real’ name

Nintendo has survived as long as it has, through thick and thin, on the strength of its characters — a group of plumbers, princesses, puffballs and emotive animals who have persisted from console generation to console generation since the 1980s. In all this time, you think we’d know all there was to know about Mario and his friends, but the Mushroom Kingdom holds many secrets, as Console Wars author Blake J. Harris has recently uncovered.
