REVIEWS Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Faf Review
I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

Godzilla (PS4) Review
Godzilla fans enjoyed the recent film, but will they feel the same way about the new video game?

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Rayman: Origins Gamescom Trailer Is Too Pretty, Can't Look Away

Posted on Wednesday, August 17 @ 15:43:04 Eastern by

Listen, I know some of you may have not "gotten" it when Kirby's Epic Yarn was being praised for its graphics. I understand. Some of us are fanboys, graphics whores, polygon counters... you know... the scum of the internet. So here, I'm going to try to explain things to those of you who just don't get it.

Rayman: Origins, the 2D platformer from Ubisoft, is beautiful. No, it doesn't look ultra-realistic. No, it's not running on CryEngine 3 or Unreal 4 or whatever. It's not even a matter of polygons and the like. Rayman: Origins is composed of sprites.

Delicate, little, dainty sprites, hand-drawn with love, and warmth, and color. Thank you, Ubisoft, for understanding that graphics aren't all about horse power and chipsets. Thank you for knowing that graphics are about the art, the visuals, and aesthetic of the game.
