South Park: The Stick of Truth epitomized the crossover potential last year, managing to keep all the charm of the long running television show without ever feeling like a worn out retread. As we kick off a new year, I decided to put together a list of recently published books, films and television that are ripe for the jump into a game version.
What does the year of the gamer entail? Multiple front page hits of the New York Times? Beating TV ratings for eSports? Or maybe it just means good games? We asked our regulars about the brightest moments of 2014, and while they might seem satisfied, some still eagerly anticipate 2015 will shine brighter.
LucasFilm's marginalization of the Expanded Universe demonstrates a disturbing lack of faith, but will they disappoint like Mass Effect's ending? Or could they learn from J.K. Rowling's handle of Harry Potter canon?
We asked our contributors what they thought the best trends of E3 were. The oddities and absurdities stuck out the most within our crew, like battleship golf games, WWI without gunpowder and indie exploration games. Quixotic may be the next big thing for our gamers, and here's why.
Fans who were primarily interested in the 2014 E3 Microsoft press conference craving for Halo news were not disappointed. The content Microsoft included was a little bit new, a lot renewed and most importantly, a pretty clear vision for what fans can expect going forward.
