Fortnite may not yet be available on Android, but that doesn't mean you can't get into some hectic battle royale gameplay on the OS.

A few weeks ago, Rich was raving madly about the opening moments of his "game of the generation," Far Cry 5. It got us thinking about other games that start especially strong, so we planned to devise a list celebrating the best opening scenes ever seen in games. As it turns out, games frequently deliver ...
Today, Microsoft accidentally announced May's free Games with Gold for Xbox One and Xbox 360 owners early. It appears that an unlisted video on the company's YouTube channel was shared before its official reveal. Starting on May 1, 2018, Super Mega Baseball 2 and Sega Vintage Collection: Streets ...
Next week we have no new "AAA" release on Xbox One, but there are still a few surprises here and there. Notably, Death Road to Canada is finally launching on the console, and Korgan transports you to a world filled with monster-slaying goodness. With that in mind, here are all the biggest games ...
Last season, just 59 players appeared in at least 150 games, down from 83 in 2016. As an increased focus on sports science convinces more teams that rest for their regular players is more a necessity than preference, this could be a growing trend. With a shorter schedule, maybe star players are rested more infrequently.

There are plenty of games that have used parenting as a core part of their story. The first season of The Walking Dead game was particularly tense because of the adopted father-daughter relationship of Lee and Clementine, and there are countless action games where dads go on a rampage to avenge or ...
And after two games, only Cincinnati's Homer Bailey eclipsed the 100-pitch plateau, tossing an MLB-high 104. "We're looking to win every game possible, but we also see the big picture in this whole thing," LeVangie said. "Before we go overboard in the first game of the year, where are we going to pay the ...
The win extended FSU's ACC winning streak to 34 games, which is tied with Texas State for the sixth-longest conference winning streak in NCAA history as the Bobcats won 34 straight Southland Conference games from 2000-02. “Tough battle today, but glad to see is fight and work through each of the ...
We correctly picked nine of 12 games in March and, so far this season, have correctly picked 41 of 53 games. As we've said in every dispatch since the beginning, our success rate -- which sits at 77.4 percent -- is notably higher than where our schedule alert formula suggested we'd be at this point. (Here is where we note ...
Wracking my extensive reservoir of useless comic knowledge, I wanted to think up some characters who need their own games, some that have been out of the spotlight for a generation or two, but most importantly that could generate interesting ideas and opportunities.

Ben Gilbert: Here are the best games coming out in the next nine months. Spider-Man is coming back to video game consoles this spring exclusively on the PlayStation 4. It's an open-world game, it looks gorgeous, and it puts Peter Parker in the modern world. Red Dead Redemption 2 is probably the ...
One of the most common critiques leveled against games is that they 'need more content.' Sea of Thieves is the latest to take that flak, joining other big, open-ended games such as No Man's Sky and Destiny 2, which have also been accused of 'not having enough.' But what do they not have enough of?
VR headsets have had a shaky start despite their obviously awesome nature: Oculus has only sold around 200,000 headsets while the golden standard of VR, the HTC Vive, has shipped even less - around 160,000 units since launching in 2016. One of the reasons that sales might not be rocketing through ...
I replay one or other of the Shenmue games almost every year, Rez often multiple times of year. Ikaruga, Bangai-O, Sonic Adventure, Skies Of Arcadia, Jet Set Radio… the difference between these games and other classics is just how insanely replayable they are. It probably helps that most are relatively ...
Video games, movies, and music have all been blamed for causing violence, often times as a reactionary form of censorship.

It's Friday night on the corner of 16th and Valencia in San Francisco's Mission District. Shops are closing up and folks that live out here are settling into vacant doorways.

To establish narrative, game makers often turn to in-game solutions such as quests, world-building (lore and such), characters, and cinematics, and they can even use blogs and videos outside their games to fill in gaps. These work in AR narratives, too. You've just got to be careful with quests — if you use ...
