It's been a mere two years since we first played Battlefield 3. Since then, we've fought through many different multiplayer maps, expansions that brought the action to dizzying new heights and reduced entire regions to rubble thanks to the Frostbite engine. In Battlefield 4, the newest iteration of the series, we're promised more of what makes Battlefield unique among first-person shooters in today's market. We hope that the new Frostbite 3 engine won't mean that our expectations will crumble as easily as the buildings in the game.
Mario Party! You love it. We love it. Everyone loves it up until the point that someone gets a bonus star for landing on the most green spaces and manages to win a two hour game without ever placing first in a single mini-game. Then we hate it. In fact, those are the two biggest flaws in Mario Party: it’s inherently random nature and incredibly long play time. Combined, they take a simple board game and turn it into a rage fest. Luckily, Nintendo realizes this is a problem and has tried to fix it in their latest Mario Party release, Mario Party Island Tour for the Nintendo 3DS.

This time, he'll have the help of some old friends, as well as some new ones, in order to stop a deadly plot hatched by a terrorist group that calls themselves The Engineers. Should you turn off all the lights, flip on your night vision goggles and play Splinter Cell: Blacklist? Or is it a title that's better off alone in the dark?

This iPad-only game seeks to turn your tablet into a rip-roaring good time to be had for you and up to three of your friends or family members. Does it succeed in its quest?

As Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn is about to be released (and some of us are already immersed into its early release), we would like to reflect back on the massively multiplayer online role-playing games that set the standard and still weigh in at the top spots in our happily addicted hearts. The 10 Best MMORPGs Ever are some
Words with friends was a huge hit and influenced a whole host of iOS games. Asynchronous puzzle games where you got to challenge your friends became a dime a dozen, and tons of developers tried to copy the formula. Some of the resulting games were great, while others sank deep into the mud of cheap cash grabs. BattleFriends in Tanks sounds like a more action packed take on the formula. Let's have a look and see if it will blow you away.
The Worms juggernaut rolls on. This is a franchise that's built upon a gaming foundation that's been around since, well, the beginning of video games. From the primordial beginnings of the artillery and strategy genres, the Worms franchise has taken the basics of those games and just kept on running (or inching along, depending on how you look at it).

Does that mean they've changed things up from the same formula that's been working for so many years?
