Great Expectations: Nintendo in 2014

Let’s admit it.  The last year has been pretty rough for Nintendo.  Between launching a next gen console with a name and design so similar to the previous generation that it has befuddled and eluded their target “casual” consumer, followed by an almost complete lack of quality third-party software support for the new console (and some serious delays in first-party titles), the company that used to practically print money 5 years ago,...

Flashiest Diablo II Builds: PVP SuiSorc

Senator Soundoff: Best Legend of Zelda? Case Three: Ocarina of Time

Ocarina of Time is not just the best Zelda ever made, it’s arguably the greatest video game of all time. Anything else is heresy.  I challenge anyone to pick out a serious problem in this flawless title.  Can anything else on this godforsaken planet invoke nostalgia like this: Prepare for more unfettered and unqualified subjective statements. The leadup to and act of unsheathing the mastersword so you can emerge as grown up Link...
