Street Fighter 4 glitch leads to 276-hit combo

I love me a good combo video. There's nothing like seeing a guy rock a game system hard and eek out strings of nasty hits. This vid from Youtube user biffotasty uses a very particular glitch to be able to go beyond the norma...

Meiji era Ace Attorney game gets its first trailer

Ace Attorney is easily one of my top five favorite video game series. It's weird, it's got fantastic characters, and the music gets my blood pumping at all the right times. I loved Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies, and to say I ...

Review: Strider photo
Review: Strider
by Elliot Gay

I have a confession to make.

I really love the original NES Strider. Yes, it's glitchy, unpolished, and generally a confusing oddity. I understand all of that. But for every strange design decision that didn't work, there are flashes of greatness. The almost-Metroid style sense of adventure, the power-ups, the nonsensical story; I find the original Strider to be a fascinating experiment and product of its time.

One can imagine then that the announcement of a new exploration-focused Strider game got me more than a bit excited. I had zero confidence in Double Helix Games to create a good follow-up to the long dormant series, but the participation of Capcom's Osaka Studio kept me hopeful.

While Strider 2014 isn't quite the legendary game that some of its predecessors were, I think Double Helix is off to a good start.
