    @hylian: The Green Arrow is basically a Batman clone so a game based on him would work well in theory.In reality it would probably be a crappy tv show or movie tie in that sucked though.

    I have both but spend more time with my Xbox One. Partially that's because I like the interface better. Partially it's because that's where my friends are. Partially it's because my favorite games so...

    Barrett's dialogue is clearly patterned after stereotypes about how African American men speak and act. I'm not sure how you can really read it and not think it's racist. His fundamental character is...

    Are they porting 1 and 2 to PS4 too? How do they hope to get new players if you need to get a Dreamcast And/or OG Xbox to play the first two in the series. This is not like a streetfighter game. It's...

    Massive Chalice feels like a PS1 game to me.

    Now I don't mean graphically or in presentation. I actually like the way the game looks (outside of characters faces) and the music. I also don't mean this in a negative way. I played the game to comp...

    TLOU ending and the tension between gameplay and story (spoilers)
