Ranking Every Single Rockstar Game

Ranking Every Single Rockstar Game

Over the past two decades, Rockstar Games has emerged as a force to be reckoned with in the games industry. Rising up from quirky Scotland-based developers with a taste for pulp and crime fiction, Rockstar evolved radically, shifting into innovators and provocateurs, creating some of the industry's most influential and blockbuster titles. In the lead up to the eagerly anticipated Red Dead Redemption 2, we came together as a staff to rank every single game that Rockstar developed (this means we excluded published titles like L.A. Noire and Smuggler's Run). From the humble top-down beginnings of Grand Theft Auto to the blood-soaked streets of Manhunt and the beautiful jaw-dropping vistas of Red Dead Redemption, you’ll find every single title put in its proper place in terms of influence, importance of innovation, and just plain fun.

With all that in mind, let’s steal a ride and roar down this road to hell. Read more...

Here Are The Best And Weirdest User-Created Soulcalibur VI Fighters So Far

Here Are The Best And Weirdest User-Created Soulcalibur VI Fighters So Far

Soulcalibur VI released this week and not only is it a impressive fighting game, but an impressive way for fans to throw copyright laws to the wind and make some really weird, funny, and creepy fighters of their own. Although the game is only about a day old, players have really shown their creativity in spades, leaving us with some fine (and disturbing) creations along the way. 

Here are the best ones we've found. And yes, I know about a particular creation with a, uh, obscene thing going on. No, I'm not going to post it here. Go find it yourself. And yes, it is very funny. But I like my job and want to keep it for the foreseeable future.

Replay – Red Dead Redemption

Replay – Red Dead Redemption

Red Dead Redemption 2 launches next Friday. As we nibble away at our fingernails in nervous anticipation of this release, we decided to take make the wait all the more unbearable by looking back at the first Red Dead Redemption. Many people believe this is Rockstar North's finest game, and a shiny example of how open worlds can be different.

In this video, we show off the opening 40 minutes of the game, and also manage to get into a fair amount of trouble freely exploring in that time. For our second segment, we decided to get our minds off of Red Dead Redemption and good video games altogether with a look at Sesame Street Sports, an odd relic from the PlayStation 1 era of games.

The Return Of Arkham Horror

The Return Of Arkham Horror

Arkham Horror has a long history. Originally published by Chaosium as an outgrowth of the Call of Cthulhu role-playing game way back in 1987, its focus on narrative and horror set it apart. Long before the current craze for the Cthulhu mythos gained steam, it offered players a chance to explore the eerie monsters and existential terrors of Lovecraft’s fiction. Fantasy Flight revived the beloved game in 2005 with a second edition, helping to fuel a slew of Cthulhu-themed board games and other media for years that has stretched on until today. Fantasy Flight has built on the strength of the brand, with related games like Eldritch Horror, Mansions of Madness, Elder Sign, and even an Arkham Horror card game. It’s a huge tentpole for one of tabletop’s most prolific publishers, so it’s no small deal that we’re about to get a brand new third edition of the game.
