We talk GTA III's 10th anniversary, more Batman and say farewell to a great man...
It’s a little hard to believe, but this Saturday marks the 10th anniversary of the release of Grand Theft Auto III – and whether you love the brutal, free-roaming car-crime game or hate it, it’s impossible to deny that it’s one of the most important games of the past decade. It was a cultural milestone and a watershed moment for a lot of gaming-industry trends, and it’s had a strong influence on the way games have developed since. To mark our dawning (and slightly horrifying) realization that it’s already been a full decade since GTA III rolled onto the scene, we’ve got a whole week of GTA-themed content planned, starting with this look at the ripple effects this amoral hooker-beating sim had on the industry...
We're all over the map with this week's iPad appraisals, starting with the iOS mash-up version of Scribblenauts, followed by Warm Gun, an Unreal Engine 3-based online first-person shooter. And on page two, we're tackling the just-released iPad version of edutainment classic The Oregon Trail, as well as the retro-stylized space shooter, Hypership Out of Control. All but...
We talk insane heroes, adorable monsters and the best Batman game ever made
One in five Americans are born with some sort of personality disorder – something that makes them zag when everyone else zigs. It might be as subtle as a nervous tic, as confusing as Asperger's or as overt as psychopathy. But mentally unstable individuals are part of the real world – and part of the world of videogames as well. Sometimes their damage leads them to be horrible, monstrous villains, and other times it can make them loyal friends, or complex protagonists. No matter what it does to them, though, it's usually hard not to be sympathetic to their problems, and to, in a way, fall in love with them... even if they're murdering sociopaths...
All we really want to do is talk about the iPhone 4S and all the amazing-looking games we'll be playing shortly thanks to the pairing of the A5 processor (from the iPad 2) and the Retina Display (sadly still not on the iPad), but we have a job to do, and this week's slate of iPad offerings is superb throughout, thanks to...
We're digging into some quick-hit offerings this week, headlined by the long-awaited native iPad appearance of the Katamari Damacy franchise, along with Monsters Ate My Condo, a wild match-three puzzler from Adult Swim Games. And on the second page, we've got the awesome asteroid-dodging affair, Bit Pilot, as well as a blaze-battling, family-friendly physics puzzler called...
Complicated friendships, Gears of War 3, and a brief encounter with Felicia Day...
Once a videogame hero has more than one or two adventures under his or her belt, it simply isn’t enough to just have an archenemy anymore. To keep things interesting, they need a foil, a rival, or some other angry opposite number obsessed with matching wits with them. Sometimes, those characters stick around long enough to make themselves an indelible part of the series, even going so far as to make friends with the protagonist – although more often than not, their friendships tend to be shaky at best, and even those involved might never fully admit to them. Relationships like that tend to make for gaming’s most enduring and interesting rivalries, and what follows are some of the most notable...
