There are plenty of games worth getting excited about in the coming months, but none have quite as much impact as the reboot of Star Wars: Battlefront. At E3 last year, EA unveiled that the series would be returning soon, and promised to share more in the spring. Well, spring has arrived, and it looks like we’ll finally get to see Battlefront in action next month. More →

Smartwatch game wars start right now – but can a 10-second game really work?

A new Finnish mobile game company called Everywear has made a radical decision: It will only develop games for wearable devices. This leap seems gutsy, almost foolhardy… but the people backing the company are bound to give skeptics a pause. The lead investors in a newly announced €500,000 seed round are Lifeline and Sunstone, two institutions closely linked to the massive Nordic success stories of Supercell and Minecraft. More →

There aren’t enough theme park games on modern consoles. When I was young, theme park management and roller coaster construction games were a dime a dozen, but now you’ll be hard pressed to find one that doesn’t charge you $0.99 to restore your energy. More →

Nintendo embraces the one thing that can save it from oblivion: The iPhone

How perfectly dreadful. Nintendo, that last defender of console-only auteurism, is now succumbing to that basest of commercial instincts and is launching potentially hugely lucrative mobile apps. This could lead to something quite disturbing: Massive profit growth. More →

Battlefield Hardline review: Line of duty

By on March 17, 2015 at 8:35 AM.

I’m sick of playing the same first-person shooter campaign year after year. No matter how many explosions go off or which celebrity tries to take over the world, I just don’t think I could handle another world war.

That’s why Battlefield Hardline is my favorite console shooter on the market right now — it’s a different beast entirely. More →

It’s an unfortunate truth of the industry, but NetherRealm Studios wants to break the mold with Mortal Kombat X on iOS and Android. More →

One of the most anticipated PC games of 2015 already came out on PS3 and Xbox 360 two years ago. That’s right, I’m talking about Grand Theft Auto V, the perpetually delayed bestseller that’s finally coming to PC later this month. For some people, an upgrade to the PC version will be the second or third time they’ve bought the game, so why spend another $60?

I’ll show you. More →

I knew that Ori and the Blind Forest was going to be something special from the moment I laid eyes on it, but I had no idea it was going to become one of my favorite games of the year.

I gave the game a glowing review this week, and now I’ve recorded a few minutes of gameplay to share with you to give you a better idea of what Ori actually looks like in action. More →
