State of Decay 2 preview - Simulating the end with all your friends

State of Decay 2 preview - Simulating the end with all your friends

Eric Frederiksen

The idea behind Undead Labs’ State of Decay was a really good one. Instead of putting a twist and a contrived story on top of the zombie apocalypse, it simply dropped us into that world and asked us to survive. There’s no president’s daughter to protect, no virus to cure, nothing like that. The biggest challenge is surviving another day. For all the love Telltale’s Walking Dead games...

Swords of Ditto squeezes an entire Zelda game into just a few minutes

Swords of Ditto squeezes an entire Zelda game into just a few minutes

There’s nothing quite like a vast, expansive RPG. Exploration, discovery, combat, puzzles, and traps. You get all of it and come away with a good story. But what if you could squeeze all of that into just a few minutes? That’s the idea behind onebitbeyond’s The Swords of Ditto. I sat down last week at E3 and played a round of the game with director Jonathan “Bidds” Biddle, who...

Monster Hunter World looks like a fresh start for the series

Monster Hunter World looks like a fresh start for the series

Eric Frederiksen

Have you ever felt like the universe was trying to keep you from something? That game you’re trying to find always sells out just before you get there. That person you want to talk to just left. That’s how I’ve felt with Monster Hunter. For years, I’ve been curious about this long-lived Capcom series, but it’s either been on a console I just put away or a handheld I didn’t own, because...

A simple mistake convinced me Spider-Man isn't running on web-rails

A simple mistake convinced me Spider-Man isn't running on web-rails

Eric Frederiksen

Remember that scene in the first Star Wars movie where the Stormtrooper knocks his head on the door as it raises? It’s a silly, fun thing to look back on, but it’s a reminder that you’re watching a movie, that it’s real, and something someone made. It might break the illusion for a quick second, but I think for most fans, little mistakes like these endear us to the experience. Watching...

Dragon Quest XI shows up during E3 with a hilarious new Puff Puff trailer

Dragon Quest XI shows up during E3 with a hilarious new Puff Puff trailer

Ron Duwell

As expected, Square Enix didn’t bring Dragon Quest XI to E3 2017, but that didn’t stop it from showing off a hilarious new trailer during the show’s duration. *HINTHINT!* Now, Puff Puff is a code word that only Dragon Quest fans will understand. Nobody is quite sure what Puff Puff is exactly since the games always fade to black before the actual act occurs, but in the world of Dragon...

Sony explains its barebones E3 presentation, calls it one of its smoothest ever

Sony explains its barebones E3 presentation, calls it one of its smoothest ever

Ron Duwell

In my mind, Sony’s best E3 presentation in recent years came two years ago when it barraged us with a host of ambitious titles and promised us the world. The Last Guardian, Final Fantasy VII Remake, Shemue III, this list goes on and on with gargantuan announcements made at that show. Well, how many of those gargantuan games are we playing right now? How many of them look like they’re...
