Sun sets on Neo San Francisco. Weather control units conjure fresh snow. Robots assist their masters and genetic hybrids take to the streets to protest for their rights. Turing guides me to a local nightclub to meet our contact. If we don't get a new lead soon, the scoop of a lifetime will be lost.

This season's breakout anime was Yuri on Ice, a welcoming show about an insecure Japanese figure skater named Yuri, and Victor, the Russian skating legend who mysteriously decides to become his coach. Yuri and Victor develop a relationship flush with love and young sensuality. Since October, fans feverishly watched the simulcast, playing "will-they-or-won't-they?" while the protagonists teased sexual consummation.

It's the middle of the day, and I've spent the last couple of hours trying to figure out how to kill this stupid cameraman. You'd think it would be easy, but I have to make it look like an accident and I can't harm the newswoman he's working with. Much harder than it sounds.

The massive popularity of 1996's Pokemon Red and Blue has cast a long shadow over the Pokemon series. Much of the fanbase believes in the superiority of the original 151 monsters, and given 2016's Pokemon GO phenomenon — which only had the initial cast — who can argue?

House of the Dying Sun rushes ahead with furious focus and great urgency, and it's hard not to get caught up in its dark current. It sweeps aside the space-opera trappings of modern sci-fi in favour of something more resolute and grim: You're the bad guy. There are the good guys. Go make an example out of them.

When I finished Titanfall 2's campaign, my body felt numb. I left my apartment, walked to the street corner and bummed a cigarette. I needed to calm myself. I'd just been through an astounding experience.

There are two Final Fantasy games out this fall. One is Final Fantasy XV, the latest step in the evolution of the series and a far cry from the turn-based dungeon crawlers of the past. The other is World of Final Fantasy, a candy-coated celebration of everything that came before.

Matthew McConaughey once said that sometimes you need to go back to move forward. The team at DICE must have been very moved by that sentiment. Taking it to heart and pushing the Battlefield series nearly 100 years back into World War I for this year's release of Battlefield 1 was a gamble. It has largely paid off.

Over the course of the first five expansion packs, Blizzard has slowly evolved World of Warcraft into something very different than the MMO that launched back in 2004. The Legion expansion feels like an entirely new game.

In a world plagued by legal manipulation, political corruption, and a general lack of fairness for the underprivileged, there's something comforting about a video game where justice is always served. Sure, everyone lies under oath and one out of every four witnesses is a murderer, but at least the innocents always go free.
