Insert Joke about the iCloud Stealing your Soul

I'm beginning to notice a pattern among indie games as of late, that is, they always have a stellar, original, and memorable concept with less-than-stellar execution of said idea. Don't get me wrong, I play more indie games these days than I do in-store releases; I'd play Need For Weed 3D any day over Dead... read more

Virtual Reality: The Future

Or a step to something bigger?

The media has been buzzing for about a year now over Oculus Rift, a Virtual Reality (VR) headset that began on Kickstarter and received a remarkable amount of funding.

Wii U

At this point in time, we are only a few short months away from the year anniversary of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and the two year anniversary of the Wii U.

The Man Behind the Music

Koji Kondo

Whenever an iconic song such as "Hey Jude" or "Don't Stop Believin'" is heard, most people can immediately recognize that The Beatles and Journey are behind it, respectively. In the rich, organic, and evolving world that is video game music, by far the most recognizable tunes stem from the Super Mario Bros.... read more

Opinion: The Greatest Launch Title?

Opinion: The Greatest Launch Title?

Nintendo 64's Super Mario 64

The Fifth Generation of gaming was already in full swing by 1996. Sega had released their ill fated and largely forgotten Saturn, while Sony had begun their juggernaut PlayStation line. The Nintendo 64 was the final home console to launch in the Fifth Gen, but it launched like an Apollo rocket. Super... read more

An Interview with Treefall Studios' Eli Brewer

We meet the man behind "The Letter"

How old is Treefall Studios, and how big? EB: The entire thing is about two years old. Now we have three people, but when I did "The Letter" I did it by myself. We haven't made any complete games until recently, really. We're pretty much brand new. What was the first game Treefall Studios developed and... read more

Sonic the Hedgehog (SMS) review

One of the Sega Master System's better games

The difference between those early days and Sonic's latter days are incredible. Sonic 06 came out the same year as Sonic and the Secret Rings, one of them was OK, one of them was awful, perhaps one of the worst games ever made. Compare that with Sonic the Hedgehog (the Genesis and Master System versions),... read more
