A third version of 2016's Pokémon Sun and Moon drops today for the 3DS, so you may be wondering what, exactly, has been changed this time around. Should you play Ultra Sun and Moon if you already enjoyed the original games? If you’ve never played any version before, is this the best game to get?
Today, Bethesda is releasing their excellent role-playing adventure Skyrim for Nintendo Switch and VR. It’s a massive game, with hundreds of hours of exploration, magic and mayhem.
The first half of 2017 was crammed with exceptional games. That high tide ebbed in May, and I’ve spent the last couple of weeks going back and catching up on what I missed. I’ve also spent a lot of time playing Minecraft, a game that came out almost six years ago.
One thing I love about Super Mario Odyssey is how often it anticipates me.
It used to be that when someone died, their executor would follow a standard roadmap to settle their estate: clean out the house, go through the file cabinets, and file a tax return at the end of the year. Now this wasn’t exactly easy—handling the administration after a loved one’s death can be emotionally and…
When I heard that the 2011 detective game L.A. Noire was getting remastered for current consoles, my first thought was, “Oh, cool! That was an interesting game.” Then I remembered that L.A. Noire was a very weird game, and one I didn’t even like back when I first played it.
PC gamers have got a pretty great thing going. Interesting, experimental indie games? Yup. Complex strategy simulations? Totally. The shiniest, prettiest versions of big-budget console games? They get a lot of those, too.
For the past week, I’ve been falling ever more deeply in love with Super Mario Odyssey. I like a lot of things about this game, but most of all, I like that there’s no timer.
Horizon Zero Dawn was a terrific game. Guess what? Its new expansion, The Frozen Wilds, is also good.
You just got a new PC game! Hoo buddy, you are excited. You’ve been looking forward to this one for years. You load it up and… oh, hell.

Destiny has long had one of the best first-person shooter control schemes on consoles. On PC, getting there requires a little more work.
Speedruns have officially started being accepted for Super Mario Odyssey, and fans are now in a mad dash to figure out the best strategies, pathways, and jumps to beat the game quickly. In the last two days alone, the world record for clearing the game at any percentage of completion has been toppled multiple times by…
One of the most impressive things about Super Mario Odyssey are the tight controls: Nintendo’s mascot has a ton of movement options. Players are using Cappy to skip entire portions before a Moon, or are using the hat to get into hard-to-reach areas. Better yet, Nintendo seems to have anticipated that fans would try to…
Assassin’s Creed Origins is an overwhelming game, full of upgrade trees and sidequests and all manner of optional stuff. It can be a lot to deal with. I’m here to help.
Today in Bungie’s weekly Destiny 2 blog update, they laid out a number of endgame improvements they’re working on. It sounds like rewards and incentives will be improved along with weapon mods, exotics, and the emote interface. Crucible PvP will also be getting private matches in early 2018.
Say you have a friend who’s always had a mustache. He’s the mustache guy. You’ve known him for like, ten years, and then one day, he shows up with no mustache. That’s kinda what it’s like playing Destiny 2 on PC after three years and hundreds of hours with the console version and its predecessor.
