Evolve’s 4v1 Trailer Turns Hunted to Wanted

EvolveSlider

As much as we enjoyed Left 4 Dead, we really weren’t sold on Turtle Rock’s new project until we watched the recent 4v1 trailer.  Don’t get me wrong.  There was never much chance of Evolve being unenjoyable overall; it just didn’t look like much fun for the player being hunted.  The original pitch sounded a

Trials Confusion: Erik Estrada is Lying About One of Our Favorite Games

TrialsHeader3

There are basically two types of advertisements out there: the ones that explain why you should buy a product, and the ones that distract you from the reasons why you might choose not to.  Sharks don’t have a lot to do with deodorant, but I have definitely seen them used to sell it.  “Trying to

Titanfall Has AT-AT Catfish Monsters

titanfallslider

Ordering Titanfall and then later finding out it features monsters was like ordering chili-cheese fries and then later finding out they feature blowjobs.  “Titanfall has Monsters??!!” read the first text I received, alerting me to the subject.  Hurriedly, I scampered to open the internets, my eager hands fumbling with the keys.  Could it really be

WhatsJumpPodcastFeatImg

  It’s the inaugural episode of the podcast, so you can’t really say we are rusty.  After all, products don’t ship with rust.  “That car looks great Johnson, but it’ll never sell like this.  Rust it!!!”  We cover all the news from this week, including Microsoft’s take backsies on DRM, Nintendo thinking they are still

the-last-of-us-joel-ellie

Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us is one of the few games that made my list of most anticipated titles this year. Having tracked the development of this title over the past year and having played the demo at this year’s PAX East show, my hype machine was on full blast. With the game finally

Five Bold Post-E3 Predictions That Fare Well for Microsoft and the Xbox One

philspencer

So rarely do I get the chance to play devil’s advocate for the actual devil.  I kid Microsoft, of course, but they definitely haven’t made many friends this week.  Ever since they announced their used game policy, codenamed the “Satan System” for the duration of this article, gamers have been in an uproar.  We’ve been

Remember Meh

Remember Me is the likely story of a woman who awakens having lost her memories, and spends the next day attempting to change the past to make more sense of the future. College girls across the country play this same game every day. Aiding you in your quest for truth is the voice in your

The Swapper Review: A Game of Clones

the swapper cover

The puzzle platforming genre has undergone a pretty remarkable transformation and resurgence over the past five years, and it still seems to be gaining steam.  It feels like it came out of nowhere.  Before Portal came out in 2007, I barely even noticed the genre existed.  We met briefly back in 1994, when I got

biden

A couple of days ago, Vice President Joe Biden said that there was “no legal restriction on the ability” of Congress to enact a tax on violent video games, and “no legal reason why they couldn’t.”  That is a completely true statement (maybe).  It is not illegal to tax violent video games, only illogical.  One
