Surprise! WayForward is bringing Shantae and the Pirate's Curse to Steam on April 24, 2015. Having failed to nab the well-received game twice now -- first on 3DS, and then again on Wii U -- perhaps Steam will make all the dif...
Bungie is on the verge of revealing even more information about Destiny's upcoming House of Wolves expansion. The full reveal will happen tomorrow in a live stream, but Bungie has released a new and painfully short teas...
Journey is a beautiful game. And what better way to honor that beauty than with two separately artful tributes that will soon be up for sale -- the soundtrack on two vinyl LPs and a "very limited edition" screen print by arti...
So at the beginning of the month Crash released his new version of WubWubWub, and let me tell you. It’s great. Well, as great as a dubstep themed seizure inducing concert can be inside a war themed hat simulator. One of...

The biggest story last week was Mortal Kombat X's handling of downloadable content. Warner Bros. should relinquish itself of its greed and earthly possessions. That is the first step on the path to Enlightenment. In this ser...
Blue Estate attempts to bring back that amazing '90s arcade shooter feel, when rock bands could save the world from evil corporations, and Sega was the king of the buddy cop cabinet genre. If you don't have a light gun for your PC, you can go ahead and skip this one entirely.
Don't Starve was released all the way back in 2013, but developer Klei Entertainment still isn't done with it yet. In addition to the Reign of Giants expansion/DLC in 2014, Don't Starve Together, a multiplayer game currently...
