Jason Love - Lead Editor

My earliest memories of gaming involve a Nintendo Entertainment System, a television that still used tubes, a family room, and my brother. Before we even had a game where two people could play together, I remember sitting and watching my brother play Super Mario Bros. Occasionally, he’d let me play a life or two, but that was all I needed to get hooked. Pretty soon, games like Blaster Master and Final Fantasy were finding their way onto my Christmas list alongside the Transformers and GI Joes. I used to play so much that my family nicknamed me “Nintendo Boy”, a moniker that occasionally still gets brought up today. From the Nintendo I moved on to playing PC games, thanks once again to my family. I was too young at the time to really understand them, but my mom used to play the “Zork” series and I’d sit next to her while she played trying to contribute and follow along as best as I could. Nowadays I mostly play Playstation and Nintendo DS games, although I still occasionally sneak in a PC game or two and a large portion of my co-op time comes from playing with friends.

Aside from gaming, I also enjoy watching movies, listening to music (anything but country), re-learning to play bass, and reading authors like Neal Stephenson, Neil Gaiman, China Miéville, and whatever good science fiction/fantasy novel comes my way. It is my hope that one day I might be able to switch jobs from government contractor to full-time games journalist or freelancer. A man can dream, a man can dream…

After Delays and "Troubled Development," Scalebound is Cancelled

Without much in the way of explanation or reasoning behind the decision, Microsoft quietly announced yesterday that the four player co-op action title, Scalebound, was cancelled. While the game was shown off at last year's E3, it sounds like delays in development and other issues lead to the publisher and developer Platinum Games parting ways.

Latest Humble Bundle is all about shanking people, I guess

Get a Decent Collection of Assassin's Creed Games for $15

While it had a number of issues at launch, and even after, Assassin's Creed Unity was still a pretty fun co-op title. Getting a group of friends together to plot and execute a stealthy assassination (before it all inevitably turns into a Benny Hill skit) is the best way to enjoy that game. The latest Humble Bundle lets you get in on the assassination action with that and several other AC titles all for the low, low price of $15.

It wasn't THAT bad

TMNT: Mutants in Manhattan Delisted From Digital Service Platforms

Modern games have a somewhat natural life-cycle where they initially emerge, sink back down, float back up for a sale, and repeat thanks to digital marketplaces. The boxed copies of a title will usually shuffle about in retail for a good year or so after initial release, but it's the digital side of things that tends to keep a title going. As of today, the digital life for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan is at an end.

Celebrate 20 Years of Diablo Across All of Blizzard's IPs

Hard to believe it was 20 years ago that I first descended into the depths of Hell in search of the Lord of Terror (and some quality loot). Diablo was released on December 31, 1996 and its arrival marked a new beginning for, and in some ways the actual definition of, the action-RPG genre. To celebrate the title's release, Blizzard is injecting a little of the world of Sanctuary into all of its games.

A '90s horror summer camp that's also a killer rave scene

Sabotage DLC for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Includes New Zombie Map

We suspected this would be coming, as the zombie mode in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare has space for other "movies" in the game setup. When the Sabotage DLC arrives next month for the PlayStation 4, the "Scooby" gang will be shifting from the '80 in "Zombies in Spaceland" to the '90s with "Rave in the Redwoods."

Festive Pack for Minecraft: Windows 10, Fallout for Console Editions

The Windows 10 Edition of Minecraft got a big update earlier this week that brings the version number up to 1.0; though it's still in beta, apparently. Anyways, along with that update, there's some "Festive Mash-Up" DLC available to purchase so you can deck the halls and all that jazz. The console versions aren't being left out of the DLC fun as they just got the "Fallout Mash-Up" DLC.
