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…

I know one person on staff who's ready for some football

Mutant Football League Looking to Make a Return

Sega fans may remember a title from the early 90s that was a different take on the usual football games called Mutant Football League. The title was built using the Madden '93 game engine, but it featured the kind of arcade-style football action that would later inspire titles like NFL Blitz. In honor of its 20th anniversary, the original creator and lead designer, Michael Mendheim, is working to revive the title for the modern console generation.

New Legendary Lords Featured in Next Total War: WARHAMMER DLC

Prior to the game's release, Creative Assembly laid out their DLC plans for Total War: WARHAMMER on the Total War Wiki. In addition to the Race Pack, which we saw with the Beastmen, and the "Free-LC," the British developer would also be releasing Lord Packs that would contain two new Legendary Lords, new units, and new "Units of Renown." The first one of these packs, "Grim and the Grave," will be released next week.

Red Solstice devs take aim at twin-stick shooters

Ironward's Next Title is Solstice Chronicles: Missing in Action

Regular fans of our Monday night co-op streams may remember seeing us check out Red Solstice a couple times. It's a pretty interesting squad-based tactical shooter that requires a great degree of cooperation. The development team behind it, Ironward, is setting their sights on bringing some of that same tactical thinking to a twin-stick shooter with Solstice Chronicles: Missing in Action.
