Revenge really DOES solve everything!
Every time I remember Dishonored 2 is coming, emotions my normal grumpy demeanor are simply not used to emerge. Emotions I have never felt before like… like… sheer excitement. Playing as Emily Kaldwin being a b...
Made by third year Scottish students
Here's another thing to add to the already long list of good deeds gamer have done: they're now helping treat tuberculosis.
Sanitarium is a game developed by Abertay University in Dundee, Scotland. The game challenges player...
Now for the sequel, Fight Robot Grape
I’ve been keeping track of Assault Android Cactus since 2013. The twin-stick shooter has been in early access all this time, and has evolved into a pretty dang fantastic game throughout the process.
Now, developer Witc...
Earnable in Europe
When I think of commemorative coins, I think of overpriced patriotic junk peddled during TV commercial breaks. Supplies are extremely limited. Call now! This is way better.
It's a silver-plated Club Nintendo Goodbye Coin that...
Dat ass *bites lip*
ASUS announced what very well may be the world's first liquid-cooled laptop, the GX700, and it has some junk in its trunk. Currently not much is known about the laptop, as ASUS has only shown pictures of it and not released a...
22 minutes, if you want all of that
We sat down with Cliff Bleszinski at PAX Prime last week to talk about his studio's new game LawBreakers. We chatted about the gameplay mechanics and the free-to-play model. There's still more to come from that intervie...
And he didn't even try that hard
Even though amiibo are becoming less and less rare in the United States, you still can't expect to walk into a store and find most of them on store shelves. That's not the case in Australia. The Land Down Under is somew...
But we might not like the process
Square Enix and Eidos Montreal are concentrated on the release of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided early next year, but that doesn't preclude it from turning its attention to games of the past. With Microsoft's E3 reveal of Xbox...
My 3DS gets so little use that whenever I do dig out the system, I forget that I downloaded that ridiculous Slowpoke theme. It goes "yaa!" whenever you scroll through your games and apps.
"Yaa. Yaa. Yayayaya."
It's great. Also great? The newly-dubbed Slowpoke Song.
NOT some messed up erotic fan-fic
Something has happened to Sonic. It's been happening for years. Sonic is a weird porn figure, the subject of countless adolescent Deviantart drawings and erotic fan-fics by kids still figuring themselves out.
Also, us, when w...
Challenging PS4 port flashes Metal Gear
Tearaway was the zenith of the PlayStation Vita. While many fine games have hit the platform since, few have been exclusive and original, and none used every inch of the Vita's additional capabilities to as good effect. That ...
The first person shooter
Here's a fun reminder: Bethesda has made one proper Fallout game so far (we're discounting Fallout Shelter for impact). Before Bethesda's Fallout 3, which came ten years after Fallout 2, the series was isometric, like many co...
I'm pleasantly surprised
Signing up to see an unannounced title at a gaming convention or expo can be risky. I've never been burned before, but I'm aware my streak could end in an instant. I went into my PAX appointment with Trion Worlds (Rift, Defia...
Microsoft absolved of any wrong-doing
In late 2013, around the time that the Xbox One launched, YouTube content creation group Machinima struck an advertising deal with Microsoft. The marketing campaign would feature videos from Machinima's network of influencers...
Because the media will publish anything
Markus “Notch” Persson opened up on Twitter this weekend, posting several tweets lamenting that life as an celebrity isn't all it's cracked up to be. The tweets became a news sensation as several high-profile webs...
PlayStation 3 game ending
'Gods, please forgive me'
Roughly a year and a half after its launch, Namco is ending its free-to-play PlayStation 3 experiment Soulcalibur: Lost Swords. It was apparently not great and coupled with a bad microtransaction scheme.
Namco even mad...
Valve has a long, rich history of banning sexy lesbian ghost games from its Steam platform, but Kindred Spirits on the Roof has scored (sex term) a win for the erotic in getting off on Steam without any censorship.
Believe me if I said around 20?
Jef Rouner of Houston Press has done a bit of research on the amount of original black women playable throughout the history of gaming and found the number to be exceptionally low. Rouner's criteria to count as an original bl...
Oh, for flock's sake
I'm a huge horror fan, and love to see any kind of innovation brought into the genre. Vogelsap's The Flock has a Big New Idea that I kind of love: there is a finite pool of respawns for all players, and once it has ...
What happens in Vegas is a bad joke
As we learned in "No fucking the robot," Fallout 4 will have romance options for the human percentage of its 12 companion characters.
Obsidian almost beat Bethesda to the punch in 2010. Fallout: New Vegas lead designer Josh S...
That horse, post clonking, is how I feel all the time.
This mistake (or, let's be real, I'm sure this was intentional) is still better than when I tried to be cheeky and knock out an enemy like this, only to have him casually...
Clerks has a scene where Randal Graves, an irresponsible and indifferent video store employee, tells a customer that he finds it best to stay out of other people's affairs. The laissez-faire approach isn't a noble a...
Now batting, Herb Guy
The PS3 firmware 3.0 was probably amazing, the PS Vita 3.0 firmware changed your life, and now it's time for the PlayStation 4 to hit the big three oh (same) as detailed in the PlayStation Blog. Taking the piss with respect t...
Who run Bartertown?!
I grew up with Mad Max. It was one of the first R-rated film series I viewed as a child, and naturally, I saw Fury Road, and enjoyed it like everyone else on the planet. My infatuation with the films is mostly due to George M...
Whiteout in the great white north
It's not often we see a title that blends one of the many hallmarks of the adventure genre, a focus on a rich and evocative setting, with the tense and resource-focused gameplay of survival games. But...
The costumes are the best part
Ever since I was five years old, I've been drawing my own Mario levels on graph paper. It's a pretty common story, because when I look at a series to give me a platforming baseline, it's usually Mario. Nintendo didn't ju...
Not just the PC port
Azure Striker Gunvolt was just released on the PC last week, with numerous extras, most notably the inclusion of Japanese voiceover work. When initially asked whether or not this feature would end up on 3DS eventually, I was ...
No more flying bath tubs daddy
Yesterday, I got an early Steam code for a game called Shower With Your Dad Simulator 2015. I instantly took Mad Max and Metal Gear Solid V, threw them out the window and thought no more of them. Showering with my dad was cle...
