Experience 22 Legendary Capcom Games

Not too long ago, I reviewed a collection of arcade games I found as delightful as a sleigh full of toys is to a six year-old. Despite the repetitious nature of its games, Capcom Classics Collection: Volume 2 impressed me with its eclectic cast of brawlers, shooters, platformers, and puzzlers. I had nearly as much fun reviewing those retro games as I did playing them, so I decided that I would repeat the process — except this time with the original Capcom Classics Collection that I played one year prior. For bite-sized reviews of each delicious (and occasionally vomit-inducing) title, read on.

Co-op vs. Zombies: Leading Resident Evil to multiplayer shooter territory (interview)

Resident Evil is one of the most treasured names in video game history. Moving an action adventure franchise that has sold over 40 million units into the multiplayer shooter market seems like a scary endeavor. Looking for expert advice, intellectual property (IP) owner Capcom turned to Canadian studio Slant Six Games, developer of three multiplayer-focused SOCOM action games.

A salute to cannon fodder

Hey there guys and gals and welcome to yet another review… Hey wait second (*reads through the article a second time*). This isn’t a review. It seems that I have written a Top 10 list. I guess this must have something to do with Bitmob’s call for Top 10 lists. Well then let’s see what we have here shall we?

VentureBeat's top ten video games of the year (vote for your favorite)

Game publishers aren’t thrilled that video game sales are down 5 percent year to date. But for gamers, it’s been an awesome year because 2010 saw the debut of some of the best games ever made. From skinning cougars in Red Dead Redemption to shooting birds at pigs in Angry Birds, there was never a dull moment. The year’s biggest hits drew huge numbers of gamers much like the opening weekends of blockbuster movies, redefining the definition of a blockbuster game far beyond a mere 1 million units sold. If there was any weakness in the year, it was that the middle thinned out, with games falling into either the blockbuster bucket or the dud bucket.

The 5 Best (and 5 Worst) Games for New Parents

As reported in my love letter to BioShock 2, my family recently needed to make room for a third player on our gaming couch. Our new baby girl is awe-inspiring, amazing, and beautiful, but she has also drastically changed how we play games. I've quickly learned that some games are perfectly suited for this new life of mine, but many others are diametrically opposed. It takes a special kind of game to either fit into our new hectic schedule, teach us a valuable life lesson, or help prepare our child for the road ahead.

Company of Heroes and Men of War: Unfair Comparisons

Company of Heroes and Men of War are two completely different World War 2 RTS's. One I enjoy immensely, the other drives me to insane rages that cause me to smash my mouse into the table. I won't give away which one.

These are the ten best video games of the decade, dammit!

Here it is, New Year’s Eve, and I have exhausted all of my other list opportunities. Now it’s time to consider the best games of the decade. I procrastinated on this one because it wasn’t easy to do. But then I started seeing all of the other best of the decade lists being posted. I disagreed with them, and the annoyance built up so that it overflowed and I felt compelled to retaliate with my own list. So here’s my favorite games of the past 10 years and my reasons for liking them so much. Please leave your own comments if you agree or disagree, and pick your favorite game in the poll at the end. I’m grateful that a lot of these games were fairly recent, meaning that the game industry just keeps getting better and better. Please enjoy and thanks so much for reading in 2009!

EGM’s Final Milestone: The Legendary 200th Issue (Part 2)

Welcome to the second portion of this look back at EGM #200. EGM may now be gone (until December at least), but that doesn’t mean that our memories of this wonderful issue should die.
