    TSG Asks: Who is your favorite developer right now?

    I’m going to give my pick to Rockstar, with some caveats. They are my favorite studio (technically group of studios) not because they are known for the best of business practices or the most affable relationship with their consumers, the press, or each other.

    TSG Asks: What video game soundtrack would you want to see performed live?

    Diddy Kong Racing. Nope, I’m not joking. That game was the very first N64 game I played (and later owned), and that music has burrowed itself to a very special place in my heart (which is probably unhealthy). A good third of my total playtime with that game was dedicated to sitting in the music […] More

    Make no mistake, Nintendo is hell-bent on winning you back with a boombox held over its head playing a song that croons, “I’ll give you what you want. I’ll give you all the games you need.” It’s an overplayed move, but you’re a sucker for a grand gesture. Our staff was swept off our feet […] More

    TSG Asks: What game do you wish was longer?

Whether providing a small, slow stream of content or being unable to satisfactorily resolve a game’s narrative threads, these games left us unsatisfied. Our question for this week is: I really wish Titanfall 2 had been longer. That […] More

    Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy – Game of the Month

    Nostalgia is a powerful thing, but only inasmuch as it is able to recapture the same emotions from which it was derived. It is now commonplace for media companies to exploit beloved franchises from the past to make a quick buck, oftentimes delivering an overall disappointing product. While consumers have become wary of anything associated […] More

    Prey – Game of the Month

    Prey, Injustice 2, Star Trek: Bridge Crew, and Friday the 13th. The thing these games have in common is that they were all released in May and were the primary considerations for our Game of the Month. It proved more difficult to select a winner than we might have initially anticipated, not because of the […] More
