Last week was the calm before the Fallout 4 storm, a good week to find some unexpected stories, which the team did marvelously. Here are my favorites:
- The Life and Creativity of A Great Bethesda Artist - An inspirational remembrance
- Call of Duty: Black Ops III’s Most Brutal Scene Haunts Me - A critic’s nightmare
- Fallout 4 Review Embargo Gets Embargo - A riddle wrapped in an enigma
- How A Video Game Glitch Became A Full-Blown Conspiracy Theory - An end to a wild goose chase
- Overwatch Makes A Great First Impression - Initial dispatch from a new frontier
- The Curse of Kiseki: How One Of Japan’s Biggest RPGs Barely Made It To America - What? A sixth piece? Yeah, six! A story with tons of drama.
Best story about Hellblade (or: best way to find a strong angle involving a game people aren’t really buzzing about): A PS4 Game’s Quest To Create A Realistic Woman
Best comics piece from Evan: Marvel Just Made a Weird Change to Squirrel Girl
Best headline: New Video Game Announcement Could Be Just About Anything (runner-up that might as well have run up the building when it was supposed to be running down the sidewalk: Dear Assassin’s Creed: Fix Your Damn Controls)
