I’m Sick Of Playing As Children In Video Games

Horizon Forbidden West is less than a month away, and it might just be my most anticipated game of 2022. As much as I love Pokemon, I just can’t trust it not to fumble its great ideas, and despite the universal love for God of War, I always prefered the sense of adventure in Horizon over the restricted narrative-driven flow […]

We Don’t Need Crysis 4

Relatively speaking, no video games are truly necessary. I understand that. That isn't exactly what I mean when I say Crysis 4 is unnecessary though. I mean even in the land of video games, and even in the subgenre of glossy junk food shooters with nothing of substance on offer, Crysis 4 seems unnecessary. It's not that I hated the […]

EA Didn’t Deserve Star Wars

In its prime, LucasArts was untouchable. As both developer and publisher, the studio had an incredible track record—from classic point-and-click adventures like Full Throttle and The Secret of Monkey Island, to some of the best Star Wars games ever made. Knights of the Old Republic, X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter, Dark Forces, Jedi Knight 2, and the original Battlefront all fell […]

Fire Emblem: Three Houses is my favourite Nintendo Switch game.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus is a messy, worthwhile experiment

Pokémon Legends: Arceus is a bit of a mess — but all first drafts are. It stumbles often on its way to innovation (it’s trying to evolve a nearly 24-year-old series, after all) and brings equal parts brilliance and frustration in its updated systems. But the good bits in Pokémon Legends: Arceus outweigh the bad, rounding out a successful first […]

Designing The Ultimate Pokemon Menu

We write a lot about Pokemon at TheGamer, which is how we're able to discover some secret, lesser known facts about the series. For example, did you know that many of the Pokemon we know and love are based on animals? You might not have noticed it the first time, but once you spot it, it's impossible to miss. For […]
