The Skylanders franchise is back with Imaginators, offering up a create-your-own hero alongside a new mystical power and a new way for Kaos to prove himself a fool. In this iteration, you’ll harness the mystical power of imagination. Kaos is

I’ve been waiting for another game in the style of Roller Coaster Tycoon from Frontier Developments since 2003.I sunk countless hours into the theme park simulator, and even more at various actual parks in Australia’s Queensland. Needless to say, I

I’m a long-time fan of the Civilization franchise, so please don’t take this as an insult: I’ve lovingly followed a franchise that’s mostly stayed the same over the last 25 years. With some tweaks under (and over) the hood, I

In a world of a billion mice, I feel that you need to be a (digital) Pied Piper and gather as many as you can until you find the perfect one for you and your play (or office) style. That said,

Review: Worms W.M.D.

Worms is back and it is glorious. Team 17 has made this iteration of the franchise the way it should be done, providing a great homage to Worms Armageddon along the way. Right off the bat, you’ll notice that the game has gone

Of late, Platinum Games can do no wrong. That stops with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan. The latest game to feature the heroes in a half-shell, developed by the minds behind Bayonetta and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance? It seems like a

Mega Man Legacy is a retro collection comprised of titles ranging from Mega Man right up to Mega Man 6. In case you’re somehow unfamiliar with the franchise, Mega Man was first released in 1986, a side-scrolling action platformer released by Capcom

Payday 2: Crimewave Edition is a first-person crime simulator on current-gen consoles, and a damn-fun one at that. Chances are, you’ve played Payday 2 before on last-gen or Windows PC. Those on the latter had the better end of the deal, of

Warhammer 40,000: Regicide is from the Sydney-based development studio Hammerfall Publishing. They’ve obtained the rights to Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40,000 and turned it, basically, into chess. I’m glad to report that Hammerfall has done the franchise justice, especially considering that’s

On 5 June 2013, Undead Labs rewrote the book on how zombie games worked. No longer was it about kill count or headshots; rather, the brutal reality of merely surviving a zombie apocalypse. When a member of your group died, they were

Well, here we are: World of Warcraft‘s fifth expansion, “Warlords of Draenor”. Blizzard has changed things up (a bit) for this new piece of DLC. Compared to “Mists of Pandaria”, a stat crunch has brought the game back to its
