Downwell should be great on PS Vita and PS4

I'm starting to feel overwhelmed at all of the games coming out this month. Should I plan to set aside time better spent with other, newer stuff for a chance to double dip on Downwell? Phrased like that, probably not. But then again, Downwe...

Atlas Reactor is dropping its free-to-play system

While the closed beta for Atlas Reactor has been reasonably well-received, Trion Worlds has decided to move out of the free-to-play realm with its multiplayer strategy game in favor of premium pricing. There's a specific breakdown of the ne...

There will be a new Battlefield game released this year, and Electronic Arts is announcing it tomorrow. With about 24 hours left before the reveal, the Battlefield Twitter account posted a brief video teasing the impending unveiling. C...

One last look at Doom's single-player before launch

I keep forgetting that Doom is releasing on a Friday (May 13). Good timing on the "Friday the 13th" front, for one, but also having a whole weekend to tear through a new game? Much appreciated. Bethesda has shared the launch details and if...

Going by the towering monsters and robots gracing Goliath's menu screen, you'd be forgiven for thinking Whalebox's upcoming game involved clashes between sky-scraping beast. In truth, the game's scale is a little more Titanfa...   read

Steam has a whole bunch of Devolver Digital games on sale

Devolver Digital and Steam are making it easier to part with your money this weekend. The newest sole-publisher-focused Steam sale highlights Devolver games, and there are some real bangers up for grabs. Let's get weird. Downwell for a meas...

Both Star Wars: The Force Unleashed games are backward compatible on Xbox One

Battleborn review

Review: Battleborn

Last time we checked in with Battleborn, I wasn't sure what to make of it. On one hand, it was a loud, busy game that tried desperately to get me to like it. On the other, beneath the facade, it presented a decent shooter experience that Gearbox is typically known for. Having played through the story and a heap of games online, I'm a little less fuzzy on how I stand.   read

People are doing some awesome things in the Overwatch beta

Overwatch is clearly built, as Cliffy B puts it, on the "mad libs of combat" principle. Blizzard created a "Play of the Game" mechanic at the end of every match to showcase particularly impressive players so that they can share it online an...

Dark Souls III

This player just one-hit KOed one of the toughest Dark Souls III bosses

After three playthroughs I'm fairly comfortable in crowning Dark Souls III as the easiest game in the series, but that doesn't mean it's not tougher than most action titles currently on the market. There were several zones and boss fig...

Ubisoft's Eagle Flight and Werewolves Within are on my radar

Ubisoft has a pair of virtual reality games arriving this year -- Eagle Flight, and Werewolf Within. The former is a cool looking flight simulator of sorts, where players don the guise of an eagle flying about Paris. If it actually has full...

Star Fox Zero might have poor sales but at least it has these puppets

When Falco is bringing back frightening memories of Skeksis chowing down at dinner or sucking the life out of little cabbage patch kids, you know it's legit. These Star Fox puppets man, they're so good! And Nintendo is getting as much milea...

Yes, the new Zelda is the only thing Nintendo has planned for E3

With multiple publishers pulling out of the E3 show floor proper and holding their own events, it makes sense that Nintendo would ramp down even more than it has in recent years. But this ramp is basically a nub at this point. Nintendo has ...

Shadwen
Frozenbyte really doesn’t waste any time, does it? Less than a year after Trine 3 was released, the developer is back with timey-wimey stealth game Shadwen. Unfortunately, while it shows promise, maybe Frozenbyte is a bit too eager to get this one out.   read

These retro X-Men games are truly terrible
