Spec Ops: The Line

A videogame that judges its audience, criticizes its genre, and hates its premise. How did this thing get made?

 

Spoiler Warning:
Mass Effect 2

What happens when you take a smart game with bland mechanics and turn it into a bland game with servicible mechanics?

 

What is Piracy?

It seems like a simple question, but it turns out everyone has a different idea of right and wrong in the digital world.

 

Why Batman Can't Kill

His problem isn't that he's dumb, the problem is that he bends the world he inhabits.

 

The Best of 2014

My picks for what was important, awesome, or worth talking about in 2014.

 

Spoiler Warning:
SOMA

A game that dares to ask what it means to be alive, what it means to be human, and why should you bother trying to answer the first two questions?

 

Tenpenny Tower

Bethesda felt the need to jam a morality system into Fallout 3, and they blew it. Good and evil make no sense and the moral compass points sideways.

 

Spoiler Warning:
Deus Ex:Human Revolution

Is this a masterful improvement on modern shooters, or a dumbed-down bastardization of its predecessor? Can it be both?

Everyone hates Black Friday sales. Even retailers! So why does it exist?

 

MMO Population Problems

Computers keep getting more powerful. So why do the population caps for massively multiplayer games stay about the same?

 

Spoiler Warning:
Hitman:Absolution

This game needs to be on more 'worst of' lists. Watch our let's play to see how much stupid you can pack into one game.

 

Silent Hill Origins

Here is a long look at a game that tries to live up to a big legacy and fails hilariously.
