The Shadow of the Colossus remake brings the PS2 classic to a new group of players, boosting up the graphics and changing the controls to make things a little less clumsy. For some, those changes will improve the experience but even small changes can have unexpected consequences.
Since Shadow of the Colossus’ remake released, intrepid treasure hunters have been locating new collectable coins throughout the world. No one knew what the coins did, but a hint within the game’s credits led players to search for a total of 79 well-hidden coins. The final coins were discovered last night, unlocking a…
Dandara is an action game where you can’t run. Your character leaps from wall to wall across massive maps while battling bosses and collecting power ups. It takes the exploration of Metroid and adds a ton of style.
Shadow of the Colossus’ remake does more than spruce up the game’s graphics, it also adds an entirely new collectible for players to find. Players hunting down these hidden trinkets believe they are on the path to a new secret but there’s a hurdle in their path—they don’t know how many exist or what will happen when…
Success in Monster Hunter: World isn’t just about knowing what each monster can do, but knowing what you can do. There are 14 different weapon types in the game, and each has its own series of animations. This has always been a staple of series, and these animations force the player to stick with their decision and…
PS4s are getting a big firmware update today. Probably the biggest addition is Play Time Management, which lets PS4 owners manage their kids’ gaming from their PS4, web browser or smartphone—but changes to the PS4's user interface and menu should please everybody.
It’s strange to think about it now, 12 years later, but there was a time when I wondered if Shadow of the Colossus was going to be any good.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has a secret ending that plays only if all players dismantle their nuclear weapons. It requires players to disarm all nukes in the game, a nearly impossible task thanks to hackers and hoarders. Last week, the end suddenly triggered even though countless nuclear weapons still exist…
Slaying a rampaging rathalos with a team of friends is one of Monster Hunter: World’s greatest joys—if you can sort through the menus required to join your pals. The game’s online management is clumsy and poorly explained. Setting up online sessions and sharing codes can be confusing, but it helps you get the precise…
Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus featured stealth sequences that didn’t always work out. The game’s latest piece of downloadable content, The Diaries of Agent Silent Death, provides the sort of sneaky backstabbing that the main game was missing.
February’s PlayStation Plus lineup has you covered if you missed Rime or, like me, heard the jokes about Knack but never actually played it. As always, these games are only “free” if you have an active PlayStation Plus subscription.
Monster Hunter: World might be full of dragons, but the hardest enemy for new hunters to slay is the UI. This quick guide should help you focus on what’s important.
Video game hub worlds are towns and hamlets that the player returns to between gameplay to restock and reflect. In games like Monster Hunter World or Splatoon 2, they offer a sense of security and community that ground the player in the world and make them feel truly at ease.
Overwatch, a team-based shooter about working together, isn’t always the friendliest of places. From random quitters to that one guy who won’t stop calling me a cuck, players often find ways to be toxic. To combat the issue, Blizzard is now banning players misbehaving on social media.
The enemies in Echo copy any action that you perform until they’re highly dangerous walking death machines. Level design and smart enemy placement turn Echo’s stealth gameplay into something really special. I take a look in this critical video.
Winter is here, so it’s a great time to avoid the cold and curl up inside with some video games. Here are the biggest games coming out this winter.
Celeste is pure. Each room offers new challenges, but the solution is always the same: jump. Jumping is remixed in dozens of different, exciting ways. Celeste is the very soul of simplicity, and that’s what makes it such a beautiful game.
Joakim Sandberg spent seven years making the huge, colorful, beautiful, 2D action-adventure game Iconoclasts. I played it. He watched and reacted. We had a good time.
Furi, a neon boss-battling bonanza, came out for the Nintendo Switch last week, which finally gave me good cause to sample its hack-and-slash action.
Metal Gear Survive doesn’t have a lot of charm, but it’s still a fun time if you’re playing with friends. Staff Writer Heather Alexandra and Video Producer Paul Tamayo geared up to building bases and stab nano-zombies in this absurd and perplexing Metal Gear spin-off.
