Splamiibo
May 22
Day one DLC is a tricky thing. If it's too good, people will howl that it should have been in the stand alone game at launch. If it sucks, then you can bet your sweet bippy that dogs will hunt. All of that goes triple for an... read

Shadowrun returns again with Shadowrun: Hong Kong


Coming this summer
May 22
One of the concerns I've had that could affect a possible Kickstarter bubble burst is a sort of "what next?" Fans fund an IGA-led Castlevania-like en masse, then what? Do they fund it again once the novelty wears off? In 201... read
Gwent Simulator 2015
The Witcher is an interesting series on PC. The first game was a PC experience through and through: you could pause the action at any time and movement was mapped to mouse clicks. The second was way more action-oriented ... read feature

Den of puppies
I am convinced that somewhere, all of the new assets for the Destiny: House of Wolves expansion were lost, forcing Bungie to restart the entire process all over again. Why else would almost the entire $20 premium DLC be a reskin? read feature

The great soup war
You really have to give it to Q-Games. With the notable exception of PixelJunk Shooter 2, it has tried something different with pretty much all of its releases, from slot car races, to tower defense, to music visualizers.

Check out the femme fatales of Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition


So...many...characters
May 22
Trish, playable in the new Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition release next month, is shaping up to be one of the coolest DMC characters to date. Thankfully, Lady doesn't seem like a slouch either, as her gun-based gameplay looks pretty amazing. I was always a fan of the Kalina Ann weapon. Despite the fact that it's digital-only in the west, I'm still excited to give this a test run. read
