What Sleeping Dogs Gets So Right About Being An Asian American

There's a scene in The Godfather that really resonates with me — not because I relate to it, but because I do not. It's when Michael has dinner with Don Sollozzo, and they begin speaking to one another in Sicilian. There are no subtitles, and the first time I watched it, I was irritated. "What are they saying?" "What are they planning?"

Why Fatal Frame is My Favorite Horror Series

There are more than a few popular horror game series out there—from classics like Resident Evil and Silent Hill to more modern hits like Dead Space and Amnesia. But for me, one series stands tall above those: Fatal Frame.

As a long-time fan of the Fatal Frame series, I can see the perceived appeal of having the Wii U's GamePad with its gyro sensor and dedicated screen acting as a proxy for the game's ghost-killing camera. But while it works in Zero: Nuregarasu no Miko (Fatal Frame V), I'd rather just use my big screen TV.

7 Reasons Terranigma is the Best SNES RPG Most Gamers Never Played

The SNES has some of the best RPGs ever developed. Final Fantasy IV and VI, Chrono Trigger, Earthbound, Shadowrun, Secret of Mana, Secret of Evermore, and many more. But after my recent interview with Alan Weiss about Secret of Evermore, many readers pointed out a game I'd never heard of called Terranigma as one of their favorite RPGs. Considered part of the Quintet Creation Trilogy, it was the culminating tour de force from the Japanese studio behind games like Actraiser, Illusion of Gaia, and Robotrek. It was never released in North America (though it received a translated version in PAL), explaining why most of us here in the States, including myself, never even heard of the game, much less played it. For the past week, I've rectified that situation and wanted to explain why I think this is one of the greatest SNES RPGs ever made. As the game is huge, I've split this article up into two parts and I'll be covering the first two chapters of the game here. There are a number of spoilers, though I'll try to keep those to a minimum.

We're Finally Getting Good Games Based On Movies

Once upon a time licensed video games—ones based on movies, TV shows, or other popular series—were the domain of festering bargain bins and well-meaning grandparents who didn't know any better. Now Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor and Alien: Isolation are two of the year's most interesting games. This is a good thing.

Heads Up: Your New Last-Gen Game May Not Get DLC

Console transitions are weird, sometimes sloppy things, and the latest—from PS3/Xbox 360 to PS4/Xbox One—is no different. The newest wrinkle? Games like Forza Horizon 2 and Diablo III are only offering DLC and major updates to current-gen versions. Last-gen, meanwhile, is stuck out in the cold.

OBJECTION! Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy comes to the 3DS eShop on December 9. It'll be $30. Unless it's a technical disaster or something—and we'll keep an eye out for that—it'll probably be worth your time. The first three Phoenix Wright games are killer.

Real Life Cars That Look Like They're Straight Out of Fallout

Ubisoft's Game Developer 'Limbo'

One morning late last year, not long after Guillaume, a developer at Ubisoft Montreal, had finished working on his newest game, he was told he'd be moving offices. This was not particularly unusual for Ubisoft Montreal, a company that employs close to 3,000 people and works on upwards of ten new video games at a time, moving developers around constantly. What was unusual was where he was going.
