Last year was the first year that Sledgehammer Games entered the fray, but Treyarch, developer of Call of Duty 3, World at War, Black Ops and Black Ops 2 will return in 2015. More →

EA exec thinks video games are still too complex for most people

Are you the kind of person who thinks video games have been getting progressively dumbed down to appeal to more casual audiences? If so then you’re out of luck because one EA exec thinks they can get a whole lot dumber. More →

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D review: Nintendo’s most triumphant remaster ever

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D review: Nintendo’s most triumphant remaster ever

By on February 6, 2015 at 3:01 PM.

15 years ago, the darkest, most complex game in the history of The Legend of Zelda hit store shelves. Majora’s Mask was lauded as another masterpiece of the Nintendo 64 era and a worthy follow-up to Ocarina of Time, but it hasn’t quite had the same legacy as its predecessor.

Now that the game’s incredible looking remaster is finally coming to 3DS, Nintendo has a chance to rewrite history and introduce a whole new generation of gamers to one of its most tragic and fascinating tales.

It can be a bit overwhelming to keep up with all of them, which is why we’ve decided to collect our favorites into a single post. More →

Netflix predicts that the next PS4 and Xbox One models will support 4K

The new console generation is barely a year old, but it’s already time to start considering how Sony and Microsoft are going to refresh the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One in the coming months. As in previous generations, we should expect to see some slimmer, sleeker models with improved functionality, but what will they do that our current models don’t? More →

Dying Light review: An imperfect zombie parkour adventure

Dying Light is the last zombie game that I ever need to play.

Of course, the chances of it actually being the last zombie game I play are slim to none, but I don’t think any other development studio is going to be able to create as cohesive of a post-apocalyptic, zombie-infested wasteland as Techland has in Dying Light. More →

We can never have it both ways. At least, that’s what video games have been telling us repeatedly, especially in recent years. We have very important choices to make, and something’s gotta give.

But that’s not the case in Life is Strange. More →

New Nintendo 3DS XL Review

Review: What it’s like to upgrade from a Nintendo 3DS to a New 3DS XL

Review: What it’s like to upgrade from a Nintendo 3DS to a New 3DS XL

By on February 3, 2015 at 2:35 PM.

I’ve owned a Nintendo 3DS ever since the day it launched. It’s not the most inventive or the most attractive portable on the market, but it features an incredible selection of first-party and third-party content. But its physical limitations have always bothered me, to the point where I simply started taking my PS Vita on trips with me rather than my 3DS.

The New 3DS XL is going to change that. More →
