It’s 2:00 AM on a night this past fall, and The Binding of Isaac designer Edmund McMillen is in bed, watching a livestream of people digging a hole in Santa Ana, California on his phone. In just a few hours, he’ll have to wake up for his newborn’s first doctor visit. “What the fuck are you doing?” grumbles his wife.
Being ‘the world’s greatest detective’ is one of Batman’s things, so it makes sense that the new Arkham Knight trailer had a rock hard mystery hidden inside.
Capcom is rolling out an official Resident Evil attraction at Universal Studios Japan. It's four floors of terror—and puzzles.
No, this has nothing to do with Half-Life 3. Instead, it has everything to do with Black Mesa, Half-Life's 2012 remake.
And so the speculation continues! The other day, we wrote about a Half-Life 2 update that featured Korean audio. It was a mistake according to Valve, and they fixed it—but that didn't stop fans from freaking out. Now fans found something else that looks suspicious in a different game, Surgeon Simulator 2013.
Normally, when a game is updated and things break, it's cause for concern. When a Valve game updates and things get weird, though, people get excited.
As Assassin's Creed's is basically predicated on brainwashing and an enormous conspiracy theory, it's the perfect subject for the kind of viral clue-hunting alternate-reality game that surfaced on the game's official site this past week.
Many years ago, the creepy alternate-reality adventure game Missing: Since January (called In Memoriam outside of the US) tried to blur the lines between its fiction and our world. In pursuing the trail of the fictional Jack Lorski and Karen Volker, players wind through real-world history and geography, as well as…
I still haven't had a chance to play the new "Leviathan" DLC for Mass Effect 3, but I'm kind of loving the alternate reality advertising going on for it.
Diehard Team Fortress 2 fans have spent all weekend sleuthing out Friday's tease, in which a "Gray Mann" is revealed to be the brother of Redmond and Blutarch Mann, owners of the game's RED and BLU teams. Tons of evidence suggest this is going to mean the introduction of a robot faction, which Valve itself all but…
Sega recently announced that their upcoming game Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed will feature the titular hero of Disney's November film Wreck-it Ralph as a playable character. The movie's director, Rich Moore, calls it a "dream come true" that we can see "Wreck-It Ralph in a real video game alongside Sonic and…
The Secret World officially launches next week, on July 3. It's a somewhat unconventional approach to the MMORPG genre, set in the sinister, secret underbelly of the real world, the 21st century Earth we all inhabit. And while developers Funcom have been running the standard closed beta and public beta weekends,…
For me, beating a game isn't in reaching the end point. Finishing a game is easy enough. Having the highest stats, the best gear, exploring and experiencing everything though? That's not as simple. Still, reaching that "optimal state" is my personal holy grail.
Google Glasses is somewhat of a creepy concept, but it can also mean a drastic change for gamers. Imagine playing the next Battlefield title like something of an ARG, where the playing field is the literal space you stand in.
What's an adventure game designer to do when he moves on from PC titles? Conquer Disney World, of course.
