Just when it seems like Mario Maker creators shouldn’t be able to surprise me anymore, along comes a clever level like Get the Ball into the Goal.
As has become annual tradition, I sat down with Bungie at E3 last week for a frank discussion about the state of Destiny, a video game in which players travel through space trying to convince internet commenters that yes, people still play Destiny.
Well, here’s a first. The trailer for a sports game was the best thing I saw during a major E3 press conference.
There’s a rumour going around that Manchester United, a name even our dear American readers will recognise, are interested in signing an Overwatch esports team. Do not let this news surprise you.
For a game about daredevil stunts and high-flying acrobatics, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst plays it remarkably safe.
Crash mode was a divisive addition to Burnout, and you either loved it or hated it. Personally, it’s what really brought me into the Burnout series; it felt like a series of destructive puzzles. Dangerous Golf, a new game from a group of Burnout vets, is an attempt to make a whole game out of it.
Overwatch’s “play of the game” is supposed to be a post-match highlight that showcases a moment of badassery, but the internet has transformed the feature into so much more.
As the Warriors and Cavs prepare to do battle in the NBA Finals, the other 28 teams in the league are enjoying some time off. Some will spend it fishing, others will spend it with family and loved ones. Karl-Anthony Towns, the reigning Rookie of the Year, is streaming games on Twitch.
Last Wednesday, I reported that No Man’s Sky had been delayed. For two days, up until the game’s developers confirmed the news, I received a stream of nasty messages, angry tweets, and, as has become a standard part of gaming culture, threats against me and my family.
On paper, the World Esports Association isn’t the worst idea ever. Essentially, it wants to function as a regulatory body for eSports, an independent third-party that can moderate and create rules where needed. Problem is, its internal structure is a mess—a potentially very biased one.
For months now, some Overwatch players have insisted that one hero is too strong, perhaps even overpowered. Now that the game is officially out and the hero balance is more or less set, however, I hope we can all agree that the bellyaching is all bunk.
The next cover athlete for Madden will be Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, EA announced this evening. Given that the Xbox Store leaked this news earlier today, the only real shock here is that he’s wearing a shirt.
Most players attempting Fallout 4’s Survival mode will just get their ass kicked. One player, however, has already managed to beat the entire thing on a single life. Funnily enough, the toughest challenge Kyle Hinckley faced along the way wasn’t something like starvation or damage, but rather a nearly catastrophic…
For a worrisome amount of time, Uncharted 4 feels like little more than a familiar, obligatory sequel, existing the way Mario Karts and Halos do to continue bolstering one faction in the ongoing console wars. Excellent, fresh ideas for these kinds of automatic sequels are not a prerequisite.
Meet Lorenzen Patsatzoglou. He’s a better scorer than Steph Curry, a stronger rebounder than DeAndre Jordan, and, although this may sound a bit premature, I’d say he might go down as the best player in NBA history. Or at least NBA video game history.
I’ve been fending off the diabolical Mario Maker creations by Giant Bomb editor Dan Ryckert for months now. Our rivalry has always taken place over the Internet, however. At PAX East, it was a face-to-face showdown.
In 1992, Nintendo’s then-president Hiroshi Yamauchi went out and bought a majority stake in the Seattle Mariners baseball team. It was one of the most 90s things Nintendo ever did, but today, that era comes to an end.
The Korean prosecutor’s office leading the StarCraft 2 match-fixing investigation released its report this week, and the results are not good for fans of the sport. One of the game’s greatest players, Lee “Life” Seung Hyun, now stands convicted of match-fixing, as well as another leading player, Bung “Bbyong” Woo Yong.
Yesterday, ESPN fired former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling for posting an anti-trans meme on Facebook. It was an inglorious end for Schilling’s broadcasting job, which by now must be a feeling he’s used to.
