Western Press

Western Press is a whole game based around quick draw duels

Western Press is out now on Steam, and it basically goes full hog with the idea of QTEs and duels. Players will input specific buttons to kill their foes, and they can do it with multiple characters across several settings. Multiplayer supp...

Samurai Rising

Yep, Samurai Rising sure looks like Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles

A few weeks ago Square Enix revealed Samurai Rising, a new action RPG that features a job-based system and many familiar Final Fantasy themes. That's even more apparent now that the official site is open, with a whole host of job descriptio...

VVVVVV

VVVVVV pulled from the 3DS eShop

At this point I think I can safely call VVVVVV one of my favorite games of all time. It's pretty much perfect from start to finish, and despite its short length, I love the mix of forgiving checkpoints and high difficulty, with explora...

Dishonored 2

Dishonored 2 dated for November 11

Oh yeah, Dishonored 2 is happening. It's been a while since we're gotten a good update on it, but Bethesda popped in this morning to share the news that Dishonored 2 is now dated for November 11, 2016. As previously announced, it'll dr...

For real this time: Terraria releases on Wii U in June

Re-Logic's action-adventure sandbox game Terraria finally made it over to 3DS, but that elusive Wii U version? Still upcoming! Publisher 505 Games has locked in a release date at last, though -- it's launching at retail in Europe on June 24...

May the 4th

'May the 4th Be With You' is a bad marketing holiday, please don't celebrate it

Many holidays are such a foreign concept to me. I get that we, as humans, have an inherent need to celebrate things and have excuses to see each other. I like to do that every week by...celebrating things and seeing people. But for others, ...

Oh hey, Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III just got confirmed

It's been almost five years since we've heard any real rumblings of a new Dawn of War game (and almost seven since we've had a proper entry), but that teaser yesterday was spot on -- indeed, we're getting a Dawn of War III. As con...

Watch Dogs 2

Rumored Watch Dogs 2 protagonist looks more hipster than the gruff Aiden Pearce

A lot of things are more interesting than Aiden Pearce and his "iconic cap." Take this new possible Watch Dogs 2 protagonist for instance, who, while looking like the definition of a hipster, can still apparently hack and shoot things....

From Software's next game will be PlayStation VR compatible

Although it slipped by most of us until several days ago, From Software has uploaded a new video to its channel, hinting at its next not-Souls related project. As Miyazaki confirmed recently, it's actively in development, and according...

Call of Duty Infinite War

Now all three mainline Call of Duty games have zombies in them

The alien-based Extinction mode that debuted in Infinity Ward's Call of Duty: Ghosts is seemingly a one-shot deal. As confirmed by Activision yesterday, the developer is now taking on a zombies mode -- which would mean that every mainl...

 
Rift photo
Rift

Oculus Rift is being sold at retail before all pre-orders have been fulfilled

“Pre-order” has a pretty well-defined meaning. If you pre-order something, the expectation is that one of whatever it is you’re pre-ordering will be saved for you, and you’ll get it on, or sometimes before, the day i...

 
Fragments of Him
Fragments of Him is one of those games that is much more impressive as a five minute convention floor demo than as a two and a half hour long finished product. It is a simple core concept with strong acting and writing that d...   read

Push Me Pull You review
Push Me Pull You is a game about two-headed intestinal worm people rubbing up against each other in the name of good, wholesome sports. While wrestling for control of a ball, they can shrink down to CatDog size for better agility, or stretch way out into a coiled, protective fleshy mess. It would be horrifying if it weren't so damn charming and chipper.   read

Superhot/New Vegas

Who put this Superhot in my Fallout: New Vegas?!

When you think about it, Superhot and Fallout: New Vegas are already pretty similar. They’re both first-person shooters that play around with time-bending mechanics (Superhot has its everything, while Fallout has VATS), and they...

Infinity Ward isn't bringing Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare to PS3, Xbox 360

After Call of Duty: Black Ops III dropped its campaign mode in order to squeak by on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that the next entry, November's Infinite Warfare, is skipping the languishing last-gen...

World's Longest photo
World's Longest

The World's Longest Five Minutes is indeed longer than five minutes

NIS is known for some pretty eccentric projects, and World's Longest Five Minutes fits that bill. It's an RPG that focuses in on one moment in a heroes' life, fighting what would normally be the "last boss" of a video game. He'll ...

 
Review: Chronos

Review: Chronos

Imagine if every time you died in a Legend of Zelda game, Link aged a year and, eventually, he would permanently die of old age. Also imagine that Link could be a girl if you so choose. Finally, picture the inventory system of an old-school survival horror game. Put that all together with a dash of virtual reality, and you've got Chronos.   read

The Climb review

Review: The Climb

Crytek is a weird company. It hit it off fairly well with the original Far Cry and Crysis, and then pumped out a pair of uninspired shooters in the form of the Crysis sequels, which were carried by the beautiful CryEngine and...   read

Battleborn review
Battleborn is a strange one, even for Gearbox. It's clearly a natural progression of their own Borderlands formula, but kicked up a notch, which isn't necessarily a good thing when every notch is kicked. Geared more towards a competitive element than a lengthy campaign, it has the potential for long legs, but I don't feel as hooked as I did with the Borderlands gang on Pandora.   read

Nintendo won't lose money selling the NX

One constant in video game console sales over the past several years is that the cost of manufacturing the system almost always outweighs its final price. Traditionally, platform-holders take this loss to get the consoles in homes, and then...

'Uppers' is shaping up to be a pretty neat looking brawler

Uppers, an action game from the makers of the Senran Kagura series, is on my radar. It's set to debut this year in Japan on the Vita, and involves a collective of outlaws on a giant island, beating the snot out of each other. You can get a ...

Kingdom Hearts orchestra tours Japan, Europe, US next year

Say what you will about a lot of weirdly named Square Enix RPGs, but they usually have a fantastic score. That goes extra for Kingdom Hearts, which is getting its own concert series, set to debut next year. It's called the "Kingdom Hearts O...

 
Hitman episode 2 review
Hitman's first episode was a measured, strong proof of concept: that Hitman works best in large sandboxes with interstitial systems, rather than trying to string what are effectively set-pieces into a linear narrative. The jo...   read

Uncharted 4

Uncharted 4's future multiplayer maps and modes will all be free

It's not a new trend, but it's a good one. Xbox's flagship property did it last year in Halo 5, and now PlayStation's biggest name is doing the same in Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. Over the course of Uncharted 4's lifetime, all added mu...

Legacy World of Warcraft server admins to meet with Blizzard

World of Warcraft is a pretty fascinating game. Not only is it studied for anthropological reasons, but it's also a platform with a gigantic fanbase, so much so that thousands of people were springing for a legacy server, which replicated t...

Hyper Light Drifter's Teddy Diefenbach is joining Square Enix

These days, it's not uncommon to hear the standard "going indie" story. A game developer works for a big studio for X number of years, tires of the grind and/or the lack of creative freedom, saves up some cash to break away from his or her ...

Disney Art Academy

Disney Art Academy actually looks pretty nifty

Art Academy is a long running series on DS that has been pumping out iterations since 2009. It's one of the first post-Mario Paint games that I can remember that actually did what it said on the tin, and Disney Art Academy aims to do the sa...

The Modern Warfare remaster can't be bought as a standalone game
