First Impressions: ‘Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why’d You Steal Our Garbage?!!’ [NYCC 2012]

atgame01

As much as I might gripe about comics taking a back seat to other media at the bigger comic book conventions, I won't lie: Of all the things to see and do at New York Comic-Con, trying out the upcoming Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why'd

Last weekend saw the release of the highly anticipated (especially by me) Pokémon Black & White Version 2, but if you were worried that someone out there wasn't really mad about that, rest your mind at ease. Those well-meaning

Double Fine Mashes Up Office Drudgery And Super-Heroics With ‘Middle Manager of Justice’ Game [Video]

middlemanager01

Combining the bombastic fun of super-hero action with the mundane drudgery of an office job might seem like a pretty risky proposition, but when it's the premise for a new game from Double Fine -- the game studio founded by Tim Schafer that racked up over $3,000,000 to fund an old-school adventure game on Kickstarter -- things start to sound a little more appealing. As a result, I'm actu

Video games based on comics have always been a pretty risky proposition. For every Arkham City, there are two or three Superman 64s out there making life hard on anyone who just wants to punch out super-villains. That's why we here at

‘Nintendo Power’ Is Canceled, Your Childhood Memories Have Been Mortally Wounded

np01

When I was a kid, I'd start bugging my mom every Friday after school to drive me over to the video store so that I could rent a video game before all the good ones were gone, and the reason I knew which ones were good -- or thought I knew, anyway -- was that I was a subscriber to Nintendo Power. I read the magazine with a dow

darksidersassets7

To many gamers, the original Darksiders was a fun surprise during the first week of 2010. Releasing in what is usually the most barren season for game launches, Darksiders was known for blending the art of Joe Madureira with the frenetic action of God of War and the cerebral dungeon solving of The Legend of Zelda. The game delivered a fairly solid

‘Justice League: Earth’s Final Defense’ Is A Fun Little Brawler On iOS

jlefd01

I'll admit that i was a little suspicious of Justice League: Earth's Final Defense when I went to download it for my iPhone, mostly because the game's official description includes lines like "The Cyborg appears and helps to the JLA members each event." Once I was assured that it was a legitimate prod

Gameloft’s ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ Mobile Game Puts The Dreamcast Version To Shame

spidermobile01

When I wrote up Gameloft's Dark Knight Rises mobile game for Android and iOS earlier this week, I compared it to their previous release, The Amazing Spider-Man, and for good reason. The games are very similar, both were released to tie in with a big summer movie, use the same "virtual joystick" cont
