The King of New York Power Up! expansion requires King of New York to play. Check out our King of New York review if you want to know more. If you already have King of New York, read on. The King of New York Power Up! expansion adds a new monster, Mega Shark to your King Of New York games. It also adds a missing component from the core game, adding a unique feel to each playable monster. In the core King of New York game, the monsters are only differentiated by their looks in the cardboard figure you use to represent your monster in-game. Power Up! adds a set of eight evolution cards for each monster. The evolution cards give each monster a unique evolution ability that can be played at any time, unless specified by the card. You gain one card at the start of the game and more if you roll three hearts during your turn. This makes each monster feel and play slightly differently, which has a huge impact on selecting your monster and also encourages you to play different monsters to try … [Read more...] about King of New York Power Up!

Slinging web around the skyscrapers in Manhattan and taking on the Rhino in a cage match are two of my fondest gaming memories. The slinging web might’ve given it away, but that was Spider-Man 2, a game that came out on the PS2 in 2004. Few Spider-Man titles have come close to being that great, but hopefully that will change soon. The Insomniac developed Spider-Man is one of the most anticipated games coming out this year, and it has the potential to be a fantastic licensed adventure - something that doesn’t happen very often with games based on superheroes. But with an experienced team at the helm it’s a serious possibility, so I spoke to a few veterans of the web-slinger’s world to find out what’s needed to make the ideal Spider-Man game. Get Spidey Sense right Spider-Man is known for a few major powers: his web slinging, wall crawling, and Spidey Sense. Luckily we’ve already seen a fantastic portrayal of swinging through New York, “No one … [Read more...] about What makes a great Spider-Man game?

The problem with Netflix / NBC’s absurdly-addictive The Good Place is that you want to tell everyone to watch The Good Place – like, seriously, now – but can’t explain why. For the benefit of doubt: if you haven’t watched creator Mike Schur’s (of Parks and Recreation fame) sitcom: watch it now. All two seasons of it. Honestly, you won’t have much choice, and The Good Place is best watched – inhaled, even – with all the story in place. One GR+ team member watched all 13 shows of season one in an *evening*. Done that? All 26 episodes? Good. We’ve amassed all the best reads, philosophical nuggets, easter eggs, videos and secrets on ‘The best show you’re not watching’ (according to Collider) in one (very good) place below, and you can thank us this side of the afterlife. ***To be clear, there are some forking unbelievable spoilers below, so don’t be an ash-hole and ruin it for yourself. We’re … [Read more...] about Holy shirt, if you’ve finished watching The Good Place, we’ve got a lot to talk about
Six years ago, The New York Times asked me to become a video game critic. Like most sufferers of the Dunning-Kruger effect, I figured I would quickly show everyone how the job should really be done. Three years later, my editors not only canceled my column, but they also jettisoned the idea of game criticism entirely, ending a run of 17 years in which the paper of record published video game reviews on a consistent basis. Oops. Writing is hard. Making video games is hard. Writing about video games? That’s like surviving Oregon Trail on bare bones rations and a grueling pace. (Am I dating myself? Oregon Trail was a kind of historically inflected Dark Souls that they let us play in grade school, back when we didn’t know what Minecraft was.) To write about video games, you need to know something about art history, computer science, sports, psychology, economics, the Happenings of the 1960s, experimental theater, improv, animation, film theory and Dungeons & Dragons, and … [Read more...] about Polygon’s 2017 Year in Review: video game essays from designers, authors and critics
