Metal Gear Solid V: The Spoiler FAQ (with apologies to Rob Bricken)
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain  is great. This is not a point that many people will be willing to challenge. I gave it a relatively glowing review  a couple of days ago, stating that it "makes an absolute mockery of every genre entry that preceded it....

Why 30 minutes of Nier: Automata was enough for me
After sitting in a GameFly envelope for something like a month while I polished off Zelda , Mass Effect  and Horizon , I finally gave Nier: Automata  a spin last night, eager to learn whether or not the civil unrest over my editor Brad's review unenthusiast...

Review Shots: April 22, 2017

A ranked list of every 2016 release that I played

These are the ten best games of 2015 and I'm not wrong unless I am
