That's more like it, PlayStation Store summer sale


Week two has a wider selection
Aug 04
// Jordan Devore
Well, shit. I forgot to nab what I was going to during the first week of the PlayStation Store's summer sale (Apotheon and Roundabout). Thankfully, today brings overall better deals. PlayStation Vita owners in particular will want to take a look at the full list below. Danganronpa and Danganronpa 2 are $20 each (or $16 each if you're a PlayStation Plus subscriber).

Humble Namco Bundle has Dark Souls, Enslaved


Good gift-giving potential
Aug 04
// Jordan Devore
Humble Bundle and Bandai Namco have partnered for a sale on some older games that are still well worth playing. If nothing else, I'd say this is a great way to give the gift of Pac-Man CE. Name your price: Pac-Man Championsh...

Prolific voice actor Nolan North (Uncharted's Nathan Drake) is becoming the Ghost in Destiny, reports Game Informer. He'll voice the AI companion in The Taken King and, no joke, the original game too -- the dialogue is being ...

Today's the last day to download Rocket League on PS4 for free through PS Plus. Jump on it! Success on PlayStation and PC has enabled developer Psyonix to grow its small team. That means good things for the future of Rocket L...

I'm using my Xbox One more than ever now that Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise is playable by way of Rare Replay. Gotta catch 'em all. Backward compatibility is a huge deal for people like me who have an extensive Xbox...

I'm going into Everybody's Gone to the Rapture mostly blind


Alone again (naturally)
Aug 03
// Jordan Devore
I've been following Everybody's Gone to the Rapture on and off for years. It's slotted away in my memory as "that exploration game from the Dear Esther people about the surprisingly serene end of the world as seen from an Eng...

"Come to this gargoyle in the next 15 minutes if u want an ass kicking." I stopped playing Batman: Arkham Knight at 96 percent completion, Riddler challenges be damned, but today's update got me to pop the disc back in to mes...

Think twice before quitting in Rocket League


Update punishes first to leave in ranked
Jul 31
// Jordan Devore
One of my favorite things in Rocket League is when someone tragically knocks the ball into their own goal and immediately leaves out of presumed embarrassment. Replays tell all. But that's in unranked play, where spots aren't...

Good lord, there are 100,000 Achievements

According to TrueAchievements, 100,000 Achievements exist across Xbox 360, Xbox One, Windows, and other supported platforms. Think of all that sweet, sweet Gamerscore! Scale aside, I was most interested to hear what the top f...

I linked news of the next American Splatfest in our staff chat and it snowballed into a discussion about condiments. Leave it to Splatoon to get us talking about the real issues, like whether ketchup is too boring and what's ...

Tangiers is what happens when stealth meets horror


Concrete hell
Jul 30
// Jordan Devore
Tangiers is said to be a surreal stealth game with a hint of horror, and the latest trailer checks out. It doesn't seem outright scary, but the world, characters, and sound design sure are uncomfortable. Like a voice in the b...

3DS and Wii U won't get Terraria until early 2016


Eyes shouldn't have teeth
Jul 30
// Jordan Devore
Retailer listings suggested Terraria was destined for 3DS and Wii U and that's still the case. It's coming. Eventually. Re-Logic and 505 Games anticipate an "early 2016" release. Both offer touch controls. 3DS has support for...

Total War: Warhammer looks appropriately ridiculous


You can summon the foot of Gork!
Jul 30
// Jordan Devore
I'm watching orcs and goblins and spiders march into battle and I'm losing my mind. After all of those trailers for Total War: Warhammer, this is exactly what I needed: in-game footage! It's a scripted demonstration, but damn if it isn't exciting to see these forces clash up close. Between direct-control kamikaze attacks and summoning a god to step on tanks, I have high hopes.

Flywrench is flapping its way to Steam

I know Flywrench more for its cameo in Super Meat Boy than its own game. You too? Let's be pals. Messhof is retooling Flywrench for a release on Steam (Windows, Mac) "in a month" and I'm so down for the Daedelus-curated sound...

Has Rocket League infiltrated your dreams yet? Give it time. It'll happen. Patrick showed us the upcoming Utopia Coliseum, but developer Psyonix has more in store for early August. A free update will add that arena plus Spect...

ZombiU hits PC, PS4, and Xbox One next month


Is it too late?
Jul 30
// Jordan Devore
Early Wii U owners should know all about ZombiU. Depending on who you ask, it was a decent to great zombie survival game and a much-needed one at that. Years later, Ubisoft is bringing it to other platforms -- PC, PlayStatio...

Well, I'm no longer afraid of Dropsy the clown


I am scared of whatever that was at 0:35
Jul 29
// Jordan Devore
Dropsy is a well-intentioned, upbeat clown who happens to be utterly terrifying. He's misunderstood! Given my fear of grotesque clowns, I've kept my distance, but curiosity got the better of me here. I clicked the trailer. It...

Out now on PS4
Jul 29

I'm thrilled and terrified to dig into N++. Darren and I have been reminiscing about the cooperative levels in its predecessor, N+, so pain is fresh on my mind. These games are brutal but fair and so satisfying. If you're new...

More stages and tournament mode
Jul 29

Hah. A classic villain like Donkey Kong Country's King K. Rool would come to Super Smash Bros. as a costume for Mii Fighter, wouldn't he? Not like I wanted him on the roster or anything. Nintendo is rolling out a bunch of new...

Organizing loose Nintendo 64 game cartridges is a problem, but is it a $20 problem? That's how much one Etsy seller is charging for a solution: spine labels! "[T]hey peel off with NO sticker residue left behind," according t...

It sure feels like summer out there. Upper 90s this week? What're you up to, Pacific Northwest? There's no way I'm staying inside all day; plenty of time for that when the skies turn gray again. The PlayStation Store summer s...

While New Game+ isn't an option for The Witcher 3 yet, it will be soon. But before you commit to another playthrough, you should know what will and won't transfer. CD Projekt RED has answers. New Game+ will bump you to level ...

Pacifism is 'not necessarily a goal' for Fallout 4


It's a wasteland, after all
Jul 28
// Jordan Devore
Officially, Fallout 4 players will only be able to romance human companions. They'll also have to resort to violence to complete the story; no perfect pacifist runs, from the sound of it. "You can avoid [killing] a lot," VP o...
