Science-Fiction Weekly – Dimension 404, Guardians Of The Galaxy, Ghost In The Shell, Alien

Ghost in the Shell is in theaters, and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hit Blu-Ray and DVD today, but to experience the most intriguing new development in science fiction all you have to do is boot up Hulu right now. Dimension 404 is a new six-episode anthology show that combines the camp of Doctor Who with the intrigue of Twilight Zone. When mankind uncovers another dimension hidden within cyberspace, all hell breaks loose. Our digital exploits are the fuel for each episode. The show features narration from Mark Hamill, and stars Lea Michele, Patton Oswalt, Sarah Hyland, and Joel McHale. The first episode “Matchmaker” is wonderfully odd, and well worth a view.

Making Game Infarcer's Metal Gear Solid VI Cover

This year's cover of Game Infarcer (our annual parody feature) pokes fun at Konami and the Metal Gear series. How did it come together? You can find out right here.

We sit down with artist Zander Cannon (the creator of Kaijumax) to talk about the process as he shows us the artwork at various stages. We run through the plethora of hidden jokes, and Cannon points out one that even hardcore Metal Gear fans probably missed. Check out the full video below.

Game Infarcer 2017 Edition: Metal Gear Solid VI, Nintendo Switch XL, And More

Here at Game Informer, we don't try to trick you on April 1. Instead, we use the prank-filled holiday as an excuse to release a parody magazine called Game Infarcer. Everything in it is fake, from the games to the editor-in-chief (though sometimes it veers eerily close to reality). In case you missed the feature in print, you can now peruse this year's edition right here.

As usual, it starts with a wonderful cover illustration from artist and Kaijumax creator Zander Cannon depicting what a post-Kojima version of Metal Gear Solid VI might look like (Cannon also drew our Pokémon-themed illustration). After that, you get pretend news, reviews, and more – all aimed at poking fun at the gaming industry.

We hope you enjoy this year's edition. As you go through the pages, don't forget to click the images for easier reading.

Zelda II is considered the black sheep of the franchise, but looking back, it featured a lot of unique ideas and introduced some new concepts that would eventually become staples for the series. Join us as we look back at this somewhat maligned entry in The Legend of Zelda series.

Andrew Reiner, Kyle Hilliard, Suriel Vazquez, and Ben Reeves go on an adventure into the world of '80s fantasy. See how Zelda II fared in our official Ranking of Every Zelda game. Stick around for part two of Replay where we tackle another forgotten NES game that features gameplay you might find familiar.

PlayStation Plus Vs. Xbox Games With Gold – Who Is Winning The Free Games War?

PlayStation Plus Vs. Xbox Games With Gold – Who Is Winning The Free Games War?

In 2010, Sony launched PlayStation Plus, a $49.99 per year ($59.99 as of September 2016) premium subscription service which offered a variety of complimentary games to users. The number of games initially varied from month to month, but, starting in July 2014, they streamlined the process so that six games a month (two each for PS4, PS3, and Vita) are on offer for subscribers. If users add the game to their library before it is taken down the next month, then they can play the game for as long as they remain Plus members, even if they quit the service and then return at a later date.

In 2013, Microsoft followed suit, adding complimentary games to Xbox Live Gold members; Xbox One games follow the PS Plus model, being unavailable to play if your subscription lapses, but Xbox 360 titles remain in users’ libraries in perpetuity; they’re yours to keep forever.

With that in mind, which service has enjoyed a better selection of titles: Games With Gold or PlayStation Plus? We went through the painstaking process of finding numbers, putting them in charts, and analyzing the results in an effort to answer that very question.
