Best of the Rest: Richard's picks of 2011

Rayman Origins If you asked what my favorite game of the 2011 was, I would tell you it was Dark Souls, which made the number eight slot in our prestigious top ten. If, however, you asked me which game instilled me with the most pure, unbridled joy, I would say it was Rayman Origins without a mo...

Rise of Nightmares unleashes 'Red Band' trailer

We normally breeze right past age gates (we're grown folks, after all) but we wish we'd taken the one before this new Rise of Nightmares trailer a bit more seriously.
