Games get canceled all the time, but rarely do we ever hear very much about them. Usually, they're canned well before the public is aware of their existence, with the studios quietly pushing the project under the rug (or recycling the work into new games entirely). These games however, failed pretty spectacularly.
Today we explore a few songs that we personally enjoy singing along to, and dive deeper into the reasons behind this phenomenon. Are there specific factors that determine whether we sing along to one and not another?
It's been just a hair over a year since the PlayStation 4 debuted in 2013, and with about 12 months of games behind us now, we can finally get a pretty good look at what some of the console's top titles are.
We've gotten our first taste of the Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer beta, and it's likely going to prove more than a little bit controversial among the diehard fanbase. That being said, if you can get over the fact that this certainly isn't a return to Halo 2, there's a lot to love in Guardians, despite (and in some ways, because of) its tendency to stray from the Halo formula.
Despite having one of the most rich, vibrant, and popular fantasy worlds out there, the setting of Game of Thrones has been surprisingly lacking in the video game scene. If you're really itching to visit a digital Westeros though, there are a few options.
Last month, we did a write-up on a game in which you can control a slice of bread, which proved once and for all that just about any concept or character can be turned into a video game. However, while sometimes-simple games like these can be surprisingly entertaining, and often humorous, there's also something to be said for games that utilize established characters and settings. So just for fun, here's our look at 10 awesome fictional characters who deserve big-time gaming experiences.
In these connected times, the year's biggest game releases are often ones that fans look forward to months or even years in advance. With an abundance of trailers and gameplay walkthroughs released ahead of the game, it's pretty rare that a game manages to come out of nowhere and be way better than it has any right to be.
Game of Thrones is all about family, as weird as that sounds, and given just how many characters there are in the story, it can be a challenge to remember how they're all related (and that's before all of the incest).
In what might be one of the year's most creative and eye-catching cosplay projects, photographer Sacha Goldberger has transported some of pop culture's most recognizable characters to the Renaissance. These aren't just costumes either, the photos are perfectly staged to capture the look and feel of paintings from that era.
It isn't surprising that every major studio wants their own Avengers franchise. After all, Marvel is the king of the box office at the moment, and no matter how crazy of an idea they come up with, it still makes oodles of money. So when the opportunity came up for Universal to reboot some of its classic monster movies, someone at that meeting looked up from a massive mound of cocaine and whispered... why not us?
