If there's one thing we know about Halo 4, it's that it has the single best selection of butts in any shooter ever made. Say what you will about 343's take on classic Halo multiplayer, its expansion of the series' plot, or Spartan Ops. No other FPS in the history of FPSes can compete with t...

Joystiq Streams: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare pays it forward [CANCELED]

After 11 years, Call of Duty has followed an unexpected evolutionary path. The road to Advanced Warfare – which we awarded 4 stars in our review – looks more like the one stretching between entries in '80s horror franchises. Friday the 13th was about a slasher attacking teenagers and it...

Halloween Horror Streams: Overcoming our fear of Amnesia

We've run the horror gamut during our Halloween Horror Streams extravaganza. We've done old school, we've done new school, we've done zombie apocalypse and haunted zeppelin and even camp. What we haven't done, however, is pit a member of the staff against a game that originally scared them so m...

Resident Evil's amazing remake is coming back in HD next year. The Evil Within made us remember Resident Evil 4's raw magic. Next year's brand new Resident Evil: Revelations 2 has us reflecting on Code Veronica's gothic madness. But where is the love for Resident Evil 2, that slice of brillianc...

Joystiq Streams: Long live the Empire in TIE Fighter

When Disney purchased Lucasfilm in 2012, the writing was on the wall for LucasArts. The company had been shuttering studios for years already, slimming down Disney Interactive piece by piece. LucasArts did die, but with the house's best years long past them the real fear was that its long-dormant c...

Halloween Horror Streams: Vampire's delight in Quest for Glory IV

Who needs the lush audio design of Alien: Isolation or the pristine mix of technology and art in Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs to get frightened by video games? Horror ain't dependent on a sense of convincing reality, son! It's all about creating atmosphere, the right mood for making your brain t...
