We then encourage you to drop your answers to the same question in the comments thread below.There's no comprehensive answer to this one, obviously, and it's just a bit of fun. We've picked games that either sold badly, were ignored despite having something to offer, or got an unfair kicking at launch by critics or players. Evan Lahti: LawBreakersOK, I'll jump on this grenade: it's LawBreakers. Corners of the gaming community were fixated on making it a punching bag for their amusement, and the "dead game" Reddit groupthink that ultimately … [Read more...] about What’s the most underrated game on PC?
Brace yourselves, because E3 is almost here. What games might we see? Well, we’ve got some ideas… Aside from the rhetoric of media briefings and the hilarity of furious or joyous fanboy meltdowns on social media, E3 is ultimately all about the games. Forget everything else. While the first-party publishing houses of Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony will all have some tricks up their sleeves, much of the hype at E3 will be driven by what games third-party publishers bring to the table.

Microsoft has announced the latest additions to its list of backward-compatible Xbox 360 games on Xbox One: BioWare's divisive RPG sequel Dragon Age 2, and Volition's delightfully outlandish open world adventure Saints Row 2.Dragon Age 2 arrived in 2011, some two years after its widely acclaimed predecessor, and was greeted with both whoops of joy and wails of dismay. Dragon Age 2 charts the heroic rise of human protagonist Hawke after their arrival as a refugee in the city of Kirkwall; some players loved the focus on decades-spanning stories and a quieter kind of political intrigue, while others balked at what they perceived to be an excessively streamlined core for a BioWare RPG. Eurogamer, for its part, was sufficiently thrilled by Dragon Age 2. "With no monstrous uber-foe to defeat, even the smallest side quest takes on its own importance, feeding back into the whole and weaving a saga that draws you further and further in as the hours tick by", said reviewer Dan Whitehead. … [Read more...] about Dragon Age 2 and Saints Row 2 get backward-compatibility on Xbox One
It's difficult to think of an anime and manga property more suited to join Omega Force's Warriors meta-series than Berserk. Franchise protagonist Guts lives and breathes hack-and-slashing, enough that he, at first glance, can be mistaken for a one-dimensional mercenary obsessed with killing. Unfortunately, Berserk and the Band of the Hawk's simplistic gameplay does little to demystify this shallow perception. It's an inadequate introduction to the Warriors games although the abundance of anime and CG cinematics makes it a fitting gateway to the Berserk series even if it doesn't do its main character any favors. For a manga series that has lasted over 27 years, spanning myriad story arcs, it was wise of Omega Force to focus on Berserk's most well known events, namely the narratives that have been adapted into various anime productions. The result is a comprehensive Story Mode that chronicles Guts' evolution from a raging teenage mercenary with no life goals to a homicidal adult seeking … [Read more...] about Berserk And The Band Of The Hawk Review
