Kero Blaster stars a frog businessman

So Kero Blaster is apparently pretty much finished, despite Daisuke "Pixel" Amaya (Cave Story) originally scrapping the entire project (known as Gero Blaster) and doing the whole game over. It stars a businessman frog and hi...

Here's a half hour of the Arkham Origins Mr. Freeze DLC, if you want to watch that

I've never quite understood why people want to watch extended gameplay videos of upcoming content. I mean, if you're excited and want to play it, why would you want to spoil a long chunk of it? Conversely, if you couldn't ca...

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare adds free Zomboss Down DLC photo
Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare adds free Zomboss Down DLC
by Jordan Devore

I'm not sure which alternate dimension Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare came from or how it got here but PopCap's wacky third-person shooter has been a pleasant surprise. Against all odds, the game keeps on giving: another free DLC pack called Zomboss Down is out today, adding eight new characters and the Cactus Canyon map for Gardens and Graveyards mode.

The character level cap has also been increased to level 30, complete with new challenges to conquer, and there are 200+ customization items for the new cast of plants and zombies. Even though the last DLC release was free, I'm still surprised to see this one follow the same plan and PopCap not overwhelm players with microtransactions. Gosh, what a terrific game.

Make cats have sex in the name of natural selection in Mew-Genics

This Holmes interview with Mew-Genics' Tommy Refenes at its first public showing explains every reason I badly want this game. Cat animations based on personality sound great. I am already laughing at the mental image of, "d...

New Vita, PS3 RPG from former Atlus devs coming soon

Rumor time. But this one is a good one, and likely a solid one. Something-something Dimension is all we have, thanks to a source that is holding off on full details, which are set to drop in a couple of days. But we do know t...

You can play Crypt of the Necrodancer with a DDR mat

The infectiously rhythmic Crypt of the Necrodancer (I hardly even know her!) was one of our games of the show last year at PAX Prime. It's back at PAX East, so Holmes tried to do an interview while playing. On a DDR mat. Whi...

Soul Sacrifice Delta crossover with Wild Arms RPG series

Things I like mixing together: Nutella and bananas. Cookies smashed in gelato. Corgis and derp. A new combination mixes game franchises that I dig. The outstanding RPG series Wild Arms gets some new life in a crossover with S...

One more time: Dead Nation hits PS Vita later today

This 20:41 speedrun of Half-Life is a joy to watch

Segmented or not, this record-breaking 20:41 speedrun of Half-Life is seriously impressive. But as mind-blowing and enjoyable as it is to watch without context, the more you read up on the run, the crazier it all seems. Take...
