Wonderful Wikis

Soulcalibur

Will this ever be "The Run" for Vinny? That remains to be seen, but you should still check out our AMAZING wiki page for Dan's favorite fighting game of all time.

Panzer Dragoon Saga

Peter Brown from GameSpot reminded us of Panzer Dragoon Saga's craziness recently, but that's just the tip of the iceberg! Learn more about the game on our incredibly detailed wiki page for the game.

Tender Loving Care

I normally recommend users confused about games featured during Giant Bomb video features to check out our accompanying wiki page for the game, but for Tender Loving Care... there is no hope. At least John Hurt was paid $100,000 for his acting.
