I’m talking about the new Gear VR headset, which turns your phone into a far clearer VR viewer than any you could buy to date. » 5/08/15 12:57pm 5/08/15 12:57pm

Holy Shit I Just Played Final Fantasy XV

I just spent two hours playing Final Fantasy XV, which I can confirm is a real video game that actually exists. The good news: it's brilliant in a lot of ways, and from what I've played so far, it really does feel like a Final Fantasy game. The bad news? Well, it's got some serious technical issues, and I'm worried… » 3/09/15 10:00am 3/09/15 10:00am

Fortnite Is Not What You'd Expect from the Makers of Gears of War

Fortnite doesn't feel like the kind of experience that should be coming from Epic Games. This is the House That Shooters Built after all, with huge slabs of foundation laid down by Unreal Tournament and Gears of War. But, despite being a game that takes heavy cues from Minecraft, Fortnite represents an evolution for… » 8/31/14 12:00pm 8/31/14 12:00pm

Fable Legends' Four Versus One is a Lot of Fun

Fable Legends is one of those games that doesn't quite make sense until you get your hands on it. Fable is such an intrinsically single-player experience for a lot of us that imagining it as a co-op action game requires some mental gymnastics. Once I had a controller in my hands and four other people around me,… » 6/09/14 4:30pm 6/09/14 4:30pm

The Next Big Adventure Time Game Is Missing Something

Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON'T KNOW! allows up to four players to step into the booties of their favorite characters, taking on 100 randomly-generated dungeon levels filled with monsters, treasures, and all sorts of Gauntlet-style coolness.

NVIDIA Project Shield Hands On: A Little Less Weird Than It Looks

Nvidia's Project Shield is a curious little device, attempting to toss its hat into a bunch of rings at once. It's taking shots at handheld gaming, console gaming, tablets, and phones. For the most part, it's holding under the strain, but it's hard to imagine going out of your way to use it versus any of those… » 1/08/13 3:40pm 1/08/13 3:40pm

I'm Liking Tekken Tag Tournament 2's Old-Favorite Feel and Neat New Tricks

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 feels a bit like a best-of album. Almost everything likeable about Namco's fighting game franchise is on prominent display in the sequel. Dancing pandas, overdone intra-family fisticuffs and deep, varied movesets all unfold beautifully animated backdrops. There's a huge cast of playable… » 8/20/12 1:00pm 8/20/12 1:00pm
