Dark Souls III tips
Call me bad, but I actually found Dark Souls III a little harder than Dark Souls II and Bloodborne at first blush. Maybe I was just rusty, but my first few hours with the game were brutal. It took me more tries than I'd care ...   read

Dark Souls III gets the Mythbusters treatment

YouTuber DefendTheHouse is at it again in the test lab. This time, Dark Souls III is on the slab. Can you parry giant pots back at those saw guys in the Undead Settlement? Can Mimics be tamed? Can a Young White Branch work as well as a...

Star Fox anime

You can watch that weird Star Fox anime thing now

Nintendo's Treehouse aired that Star Fox anime they announced earlier this week. Predictably, it's pretty anime-ish, what with the dramatic dialog and Macross-missile barrages. You can catch it on YouTube if you're interested. Super slick ...

SFV Guile

New trailer reveals that Guile is still into Sonic Booms, hairstyle maintenance

Something about Guile's new look just seems off to me. He looks more like a pushy TSA agent who is way too into his job than a military badass. Maybe it's the lack of camouflage pants? In any case, he still has the moves. This new characte...

This massive Skyrim mod took more than three years to develop

Looking for a reason to dust off your copy of Skyrim? Holds: The City Overhaul might be the excuse you're looking for. This gigantic mod (a 4 GB download) took its creator Galandil more than three years to put together. Why so long? Because...

Forza 6 goes retro with free Fallout 4-inspired car

 Xbox One owners who own either Fallout 4 or Forza 6 are getting another free treat. Similar to the Vault-Tech themed 1956 Ford F100 released last November, racing fans and wasteland scavengers will be receiving the Chryslus Rocket '69...

 
Phantasmal review
Phantasmal: City of Darkness has a killer pitch. A procedurally generated horror game that takes its inspiration from games like Silent Hill and horror staples like the novels of H.P. Lovecraft, set in the extra super spooky ...   read

Wasteland Workshop review
I'm assuming I'm the exact target audience for Wasteland Workshop. I'm the guy who never quite finished the main quest of Fallout 4 because I got too invested in establishing and kitting out every settlement I could. I'm the ...   read

Wasteland Workshop

Fallout 4's Wasteland Workshop is out today

I put a lot of time into Fallout 4's settlement system, so on one hand I'm pretty excited for the home improvement focused Wasteland Workshop DLC. I can totally get down with nixie tube lighting, new signage, and new trophies to deck o...

Capturing that 'nothing but net' sound in Heroes of the Storm

I'm always fascinated by video game sound design. I mean sure, we've all seen about a million features of the Gran Turismo dudes crawling under sports cars to get the exact pitch of the exhaust right, so some of the mystery is gone. But I c...

A touching Iwata tribute is in Star Fox Zero

Former Nintendo President Satoru Iwata may have passed on months ago, but his loss is still keenly felt in the gaming community. In that spirit, Nintendo put a touching nod to the man at the end of the Star Fox Zero. A small post-credit ded...

Dark Souls III strategy

What's your Dark Souls strategy?

I like to run a lot of funky builds in the Dark Souls games. Big guys swinging around huge two-handed clubs and hammers are a favorite. But so are svelte, nimble little assassins with a buckler for parrying and a nasty little spike of a dag...

 
Punch-Out secret photo
Punch-Out secret

Secret found in Mike Tyson's Punch-Out damn near three decades after release

You'd think there would be nothing left to wring out of a game like Punch-Out. The NES classic, released back in 1987, has been picked apart and broken down to the point where speedrunners compete to complete the game blindfolded. But, neve...

 
Aegis of Earth review
Aegis of Earth: Protonovus Assault is a frustrating game. Not because it’s difficult (it sure isn’t) and not because of its nonsense mouthful of a title (although that sure doesn’t help). It’s frustrat...   read

End of the Mine

End of the Mine Kickstarter looks like a creepy good time

"End of the mine" sounds like something an '80s beefcake action star would say before tossing a vaguely European villain into a mine shaft for trying to steal bearer bonds or something. But, it's actually a new game on Kickstarter. The 2D a...

Binding of Isaac + Bumbo

Binding of Isaac updates and a Bumbo tease

I'm both excited and terrified for Binding of Isaac Afterbirth+. I mean, more Isaac is always a good thing, but I'm STILL trying to collect all of the items and secrets that were included in the vanilla Afterbirth expansion. Creator Edmund ...

Rock Band 4 crowdfunding campaign fails

In what may or may not be a surprise depending on your perspective, the PC version of Rock Band 4 isn't going to happen. The crowdfunding campaign, held on the investment-based Fig platform, failed to meet its goal. In total, the campaign o...

Rainbow 6: Siege and other Tom Clancy games on sale on PSN

My brother read The Hunt for Red October in grade four, Lord knows why the school library had a copy. He spent the next few weeks after reading it becoming extra, creepily knowledgeable about nuclear weapons and the lasting impact of Cold W...

MechWarrior Online is holding a tournament with a $100K prize purse

MechWarrior Online has been a lot of things to me, interesting experiment, occasional tormentor, and video game comfort food. But, I never thought I'd see the day it could be a potential payday. In fact, I still don't. Last time I played I ...

Enter the Gungeon trailer

Enter the Gungeon has a cute animated trailer

Enter the Gungeon is a title I've been keeping an eye on. Any game that name checks Binding of Isaac and Nuclear Throne is going to pique my interest, but Gungeon has enough of its own style to step out of the shadow of its inspirations and...

 
HLD review
The post-apocalypse is the new WWII -- the overused, thoroughly played-out, exhausted setting that too many games and movies muck around in. We've seen it all: zombies, mutants, raiders, and hell, even dinosaurs. It's hard to...   read

Quantum Pilot

Quantum Pilot should be called 'Stop Hitting Yourself: The Game'

I love all of the quirky, experimental games being released on itch.io these days. Quantum Pilot looks like a simplistic shmup in the style of Galaga and other classics, but instead of shooting down waves of alien buzz-bombers, you're up ag...

Breaking: There are butts in Dark Souls III

I know, I know, I said I wasn't going to spoil Dark Souls III for myself. But some things are just too exciting to ignore, and this is one of them. There are butts in Dark Souls III.

 
DkS III spoilers
The last few days have been agony for me. After it got out that it was possible to download the Japanese version of Dark Souls III with English subtitles and menus, seemingly every YouTuber and streamer in the world has made ...   read

Prankster gets paint drying simulator on Steam

A lot of shovelware makes it onto to Steam, but Watch Pain Dry, a game literally about watching paint dry, seemed a bit over the line. In fact, that was the point. Watch Paint Dry was never designed to be a real game, an art project, or eve...

Mortal Kombat XL patch takes a crowbar to the DLC characters

A fresh patch went live for MKXL today and it was a bloodbath. As foretold in my prophetic impressions piece at the beginning of the month, the day of reckoning has come for the DLC characters introduced in Kombat Pack 2. While th...

Fallout 4's Automatron DLC is better if you play as the Silver Shroud

Reactions to Fallout 4's first piece of DLC, Automatron, have been mixed. Jordan was cool on the experience, enjoying some of the new locations, but was disappointed by a fairly short run time and that the DLC only seemed to account for cha...

Drawful 2 will finally realize the dream of drawing with two colors at once

Out of all the Jackbox Party Pack minigames, Drawful quickly established itself as a favorite among the group of degenerates I occasionally get drunk and stupid with. It offers the perfect potential chance for whimsy and obscenity to make a...

Fire Emblem Fates fan-translation cancelled

You might have heard about Team If's fan translation effort of Fire Emblem Fates, a response to what some fans saw as a poor localization job by Nintendo's Treehouse. Amid a flurry of criticism, accusations of everything from censorship to ...

Canadian Toys R Us buy two, get a third amiibo free promotion

Do you need a lot of amiibos for reasons you'd rather not get into? It's fine, I'm not judging. You may be interested in a promotion going on at Canadian Toys R Us is all. The Canadian end of the retail chain is offering a "buy two, get the...
