‘Ghost of Tsushima’ looks like a playable Kurosawa film

‘Ghost of Tsushima’ is a PS4-exclusive samurai action/adventure game from Infamous developer Sucker Punch Productions that captures the look and feel of classic samurai media, like the films of Akira Kurosawa, more accurately than any video game we’ve ever seen from our hands-off impressions at E3.

‘Starlink: Battle for Atlas’ hands-on preview

‘Starlink: Battle for Atlas’ is a smart next step for toys-to-life, adding interaction to the toys themselves. In practice, however, it didn’t necessarily enhance the gameplay enough to justify all the additional expense that the genre entails. Cool spaceship toys don’t buy themselves.
Generation Zero

A mix of ‘Horizon Zero Dawn’ and co-op, ‘Generation Zero’ is the robopocalypse

‘Generation Zero’ is an upcoming self-published project from Just Cause developer Avalanche Studios. We took an early look at it in action this week at E3 and found that this co-op, open world, post-apocalyptic 80s nostalgia shooter is more than just the sum of its very trendy parts.

‘Cultist Simulator’ shows there’s more to Lovecraft than tentacles

Cthulhu-creator HP Lovecraft’s influence can be found all over pop culture, and especially in games. Where most other media has reduced his work to a style, however, Alexis Kennedy’s new ‘Cultist Simulator’ captures the spirit of Lovecraft’s work better than anything we’ve ever played.

‘Heavy Rain’ is steeped in mood, light on player interaction

David Cage has reined in a lot of his past excess with the new Detroit: Become Human, but his serial killer noir thriller 'Heavy Rain' looks more like The Room than anything else, in retrospect. The game’s lack of meaningful interaction for players is a flaw that’s even harder to tolerate today.

Playing ‘The Sims’ in the harsh light of adulthood

Playing 'The Sims' in high school was a fun way to imagine independent life. Going back to play it again in your 30s is a very different and more sobering experience that casts light on how dehumanizing the endless treadmill of modern life can be.

‘God of War’ gets myth right with the liberties it takes

The new ‘God of War’ makes the stories of Norse myth its own, and in so doing is more faithful to the source material than a literal retelling of the Norse gods’ stories. By returning to the source of mythic storytelling, it contains lessons that would be useful for our current obsession with originality.
