What really is a game, anyway? This is a question that bothers a lot of insecure people with insignificant things to argue about.

Actually, when 999 came out on iOS in Japan we learned it had removed the "escape the room" puzzles, so this new, $5 release isn't a surprise. If you can't track down the DS original, this is an okay substitute, I suppose, though people have varying opinions on how integral the puzzles are.

It's out today.

Review: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors

A few years ago, I discovered escape-the-room Flash games and was hooked instantly. Shorter and more compact than your typical point-and-click adventure, escape-the-room games such as Crimson Room are a great way to kill time...more

Check out new direct-feed Bloodborne gameplay

Last week, I got to go hands-on with Bloodborne. This visually evocative and bleak follow-up to Dark Souls II is a change of pace, but also something that feels and plays very much like the games of the past. While the change...more

Face your mortality in the latest Shadowgate trailer
