Show of the Week: For Honor and 5 Least Likely Match-Ups in Games

For Honor is a Deadliest Warrior-style historical mash-up that imagines a past in which vikings, knights and samurai got into scraps on the regs. As much as that makes my inner historical accuracy stickler wince, I have to admit that this is far from the least likely face-off we've ever seen in videogames - as we discover later in this week's Show.

It's easy to tell who the hero of a game is: they're the character on the box, or the game is named after them, or they're played by Troy Baker.

6 Reasons Resident Evil 7 Is the Best Since Resident Evil 4

At first, Resident Evil 7 seems like a far cry from Resident Evil survival horror tradition, with its controversial new first-person perspective and apparent preference for stealth and hiding.

The 7 Most Over The Top Special Moves That Weren't Strictly Necessary

The 7 Most Over The Top Special Moves That Weren't Strictly Necessary

When ordinary punches, kicks and throws aren't doing the job, that's when it's time to turn to a special move.

I mean, there's no way that these ridiculously over the top special moves were necessary.
