‘Resident Evil 4 Remake’ Honors the Original: Video Game Review

“Resident Evil 4” was first released on the Nintendo GameCube back in 2005. Since then, it’s been hailed as one of the best video games of all time. Its goofy dialogue and action-based gameplay made for an entertaining adventure with government agent Leon S. Kennedy as he rescues the president’s kidnapped daughter, Ashley, from a mysterious cult.

Inside the Art of 'Breaking' Video Games

How fast can a game be beaten — and how many tricks can a player use as they do it? With “game breaking,” users look for loopholes in a game’s design and use them to get past difficult enemies. Different players have different approaches: Speedrunners, for example, find the fastest way to finish, while “map clippers” twist “mechanics” — the rules by which the digital universe is bound — to see what they can get away with before it becomes a problem for developers, or crashes the game completely.

Fire Emblem Engage offers the series’ best gameplay yet — even if the story disappoints

The Fire Emblem series is now as popular as ever. When Fire Emblem: Awakening launched for the Nintendo 3DS in 2012, the game single-handedly saved the franchise from cancellation due to its overwhelming popularity. It expanded on the relationship simulation elements popularized by games like the Persona series while retaining the same chess-like tactical combat, and was later built on with well-received entries like Fire Emblem: Fates and Fire Emblem: Three Houses.

'A Space for the Unbound' review: 2023's first great indie game

Drowning in a river trying to save a little girl is a hell of a way to open a game about high school romance.

But this literal nightmare is exactly what happens to Atma, the main character in A Space for the Unbound. He wakes up next to his girlfriend, Raya, and thus begins the story of their dreamy, bizarre romance.

'Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion' Is a (Slightly) Updated Time Capsule From the Mid-2000s

In 1997, Japanese developer Square released a juggernaut with Final Fantasy VII, a game generally considered one of the greatest ever made.
