    Ubisoft Encouraging More Unique Games like Child of Light

    Well, I don't think Child of Light was a very good game, but I think it was a step in the right direction. They are at least trying to make something interesting and different. Even if it fails, they will get there eventually.

    Marvel Sued by Intern in Class Action Wage Lawsuit

    Here is the thing, most unpaid internships are taken so that you can gain experience in the industry. If they are just having you fetch coffee and other such 'gopher' work, then you are not getting any experience and they have to pay you. It is only legal to have an unpaid employee if you are...

    Marvel Won't Move Captain America 3 Release Date for Batman v Superman

    Here's the thing about this - yes, both movies will lose a lot of money if they do this. The difference is that Marvel can afford losing money on the THIRD captain america movie. DC can't afford to lose money on Batman v Superman. all their plans for the Justice League hinge on that movie...

    New Sunset Overdrive Video Takes a Swipe At Assassin's Creed Over Female Characters

    I'm really glad that they offer gender-neutral options. Trans people and crossdressers get shit on by pop culture all the time, and I like seeing them getting some representation that isn't negative. More of this please publishers!

    Halo Master Chief Collection Tides Fans Over for Halo 5 With Multiplayer Beta - Update

    yes yes yes yes! Since each game had strengths and flaws, this way the options you have will allow anyone to enjoy it. Plus, if they let you use Forge-mode maps in any one of the games, I might literally die.

    What Really Bugged Me About Halo 4

    Halo 4 was an interesting game. However, I have three main problems. First they didn't give enough custom games options. They gave us this incredible new version of the forge editor, but then gave us FEWER custom game options than Halo: Reach did, which in turn gave fewer than Halo 3. Why can't...

    Amnesia Dev Teases SOMA Gameplay

    Hmm, the visual design leaves me a bit unimpressed. From the stuff they had on their website before I was expecting a more white, sterile look. This looks similar to amnesia visually. Not a terrible thing, I just think it would be interesting to have a horror setting that moves beyond the...

    Nigeria Discovery: Nine Lost Doctor Who Episodes

    Keep in mind that back in those times all of the episodes had to be kept on physical copies. When color TV came out, many TV companies thought that old black-and-white shows would become worthless so they destroyed the physical copies to save space and make room for the new color tapes. The only...

    The Vanishing of Ethan Carter Unveils First Screens

    Well obviously it is hard to say anything about it this early on, but color me intrigued. I'm loving this growing trend of developers who focus on story, particularly in bigger-budget 3d games such as this one. Plus I am a big fan of horror, and while this doesn't look like a full-fledged horror...

    Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs Review - Squeals and Fury

    Just want to drop my thoughts into the bucket, so to speak. I have played the game for only two hours, and I am BORED. It is decently scary at times, but not nearly as scary as TDD. Also, I have only seen the monster a few times, but the scariness of said monster is already dwindling. The...

    Eldritch Delves Deep In a Lovecraftian Action Roguelike

    This actually looks like a lot of fun. I know that basically every element in this is ticking off boxes on the indie game checklist, but it appears to be well made.I love roguelikes, and I have wanted an adventure game using a minecraft-ey aesthetic for a while now. Also, the combat looks fun...

    Parkour Team Brings Mirror's Edge To Life

    Just saying guys, I can't speak for every location, but there are parkour gyms that exist. You can practice your skills in those (very heavily padded) locations before taking on anything like she was doing, if you would like to learn. Damn impressive stuff though.

    Hands-On: The Elder Scrolls Online Sucked Me In Instantly

    Looking at the video, the thing that impressed me is how much more satisfying the combat looked than Skyrim. It looks functionally similar, but the spells in particular seemed to have a much weightier feel to them, like they were actually a force of power instead of just lights on the screen...

    Mirror's Edge 2 Announced

    Guys. Guys. Guys. I don't think you understand how much I can't handle this right now... I AM SO EXCITED! But in all seriousness, I don't think there is any game that needed a sequel more than Mirror's Edge. If they learned from all the feedback given since the first game's release, this...

    Escapist Podcast: 090: Nintendo Bails on E3 and Dragon's Crown's Breasts

    When it comes to titles, I'm quite taken with "Stealth Bastard: Tactical Espionage Arsehole" because I'm juvenile.
