REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

ONE PIECE Unlimited World Red Review
"Unlimited World Red"? More like "Sorta Limited Town and Extended Areas... Red. And Blue. And Some Yellow."

PREVIEWS Pillars of Eternity Preview
For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

It's finally time for round two of our forum GOTY showdown 2013 edition (remember that year?).

For this round I've asked our intrepid users to write a haiku about their chosen game.

Please enjoy the haiku and then vote below for which game you want to see advance to the semifinals! Please bold your votes.

All haiku are [sic]. You all have terrible grammar.


Today's round two matchup is: Fire Emblem: Awakening vs. The Last of Us

The Last of Us. Really, the only two games I see in this battle that I've played is TLoU and GTA V.

There was once two girls.
One died and the other curl
Yeah, I got nothing.

You're quite welcome. Also, didn't read the fine print for the new rules. This just came outta nowhere. However, I edited my posts.

EDIT: I'm tired as f*ck.

Madster kind of phoned that haiku in. Wish I could vote for Fire Emblem, but I'll have to go with The Last of Us based purely on haiku.

The Last of Us because it really is the best game of 2013.

No it's not.
But it is the only game in this fight that I've played.

And I don't want Wes to call me a hipster. That is my biggest fear.
The Last of Us.

Normally I would say MY best game of the year. But with all the crap I've been saying about it I just needed to clarify I was kidding Razz

Which part are you talking about? I remember a few generators from that game, but I don't remember one that was so egregious that it could have ruined someone's entire game.

It's a proven fact that generators are the sole cause of disappointment in America today.

For more info on why generators suck, head to your local library.
