PC Port Report: Dark Souls II

The appearance of the original Dark Souls on PC was welcome but it was... let's say troubled. With its innovative online mode married to the much maligned Games for Windows Live service and the game was locked at a piddly 102...

Humble Weekly Sale rounds up Dustforce, Teslagrad, and 10 others

This week's Humble sale is a fundraising effort for DirectRelief presented by TSG featuring some truly excellent games and soundtracks. It's as good if not better than a full-blown Humble Bundle. To start off, pay-what-you-wa...

Chasm requires players approach it with a slow sword hand

We have been keeping our eyes on Chasm for a long time now. Ever since it initially showed up, it looked like it checked off all the right boxes to be a retro dream game. It has procedurally generated dungeons, Castlevania-es...

Live show: Finishing up Beyond: Two Souls

I have very few qualms with calling Beyond: Two Souls a bad game. From it's incredibly poorly executed QTEs to its incredibly hamfisted writing there is very little in there that I would call decent, and even fewer examples o...

BloodRayne: Betrayal is slicing up dudes on PC next week

I know, I know. It seems like we were just talking about BloodRayne: Betrayal just the other day. Well, I was. Now I'm talking about it again, because it's it's coming to PC next week via Steam. On April 30, you can hack and ...

Natsume's End of Serenity is a PSN-exclusive classic JRPG

The retro JRPG aesthetic is infinitely appealing to me, and Natsume and Kemco hope you'll feel the same way with the upcoming End of Serenity. It's a love letter to the 16-bit era with traditional undertones set for a North A...

Review: Mario Golf: World Tour

It's been about 10 years since we've seen the Mushroom Kingdom gang out on the green, so it was high time for a new Mario Golf title.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown hits Google Play this week

XCOM: Enemy Unknown was one of my favorite games of 2012, and a year later, I enjoyed its iOS port all the same. It was a wonderful way to play it on the go, and considering the fact that it was basically the full game, it wa...

The Wolf Among Us episode 3 accolades trailer is a little cranky

These The Wolf Among Us accolades trailers that Telltale likes to put out after each episode might not amount to a whole lot more than horn-tooting, but they still feel weighty and worth a watch.
