War for the Overworld is the Dungeon Keeper sequel you wanted

When the recent Dungeon Keeper mobile game was released by EA, it went down like a barrel of stinking fish; it took the core concepts of the franchise and saddled them with a freemium model that made it a chore to play. Than...

Awesome-ass online gaming store Green Man Gaming now has a publishing label called Green Man Loaded. They're already neck deep in the business, with contacts that reach out to every corner of gaming. So publishing makes sense...

This fan-made LEGO Doom set is amazing

LEGO enthusiast Iain Heath has created a giant rendition of Doom, and it looks pretty damn masterful. He not only has a ton of details like ammo on the ground and dead imps, but he even goes as far as pixelating some of the ...

Watch TJ Combo wrack up a 195-hit combo in training mode

TJ Combo is an absolute beast. We knew that back in the older Killer Instinct games, and that seems to be true to this day. Fans have been experimenting with the new iteration of the character in Killer Instinct fo...

Yes, a Tetris sci-fi movie is currently in production

Mega entertainment company Threshold Entertainment has the green light from The Tetris Company to create a live-action Tetris movie. That alone is crazy. But Larry Kasanoff and Jimmy Ienner are planning on turning the puzzle ...

Get a look a Dragon Age: Inquisition's customization options

I know a lot of people that are really into creation options in games. Dragon Age Origins was partial to this ideology, as the entire point was to craft a character that you had complete control of. This new video by Bi...

Hyrule Warrior's first DLC pack will highlight the villain Cia

Hyrule Warriors is out, and people seem to be really digging it so far. While a lot of you may be done with the campaign and are currently working on Adventure Mode, there's still more story to come with the first paid ...

Review: Chariot photo
Review: Chariot
by Brett Makedonski

Local cooperative play is something that's been increasingly neglected in an age of videogames that pushes online connectivity seemingly first and foremost. It's ironic that titles like Destiny are the current benchmark for social experiences, when all communication is done through a headset. After all, it really doesn't get more personal than sitting next to someone on a couch and working (almost literally) hand-in-hand to achieve a goal.

Frima Studio hasn't forgotten these golden moments of yesteryear, and aims to recapture them with Chariot. The developers succeeded in their ambition. In fact, they pull it off so well, that you might find yourself short-changed when you don't have a partner in crime readily handy.

Thank Iwata: The Wii U has folders now!

I was running out of space to put things on my Wii U. No I don't mean storage space, I'm talking about the UI in general. With four pages of Virtual Console games to my name and two pages of eShop titles alone, I had to delet...

[Note: I am currently in process of rendering and uploading all of the videos to the playlist. If you run out and want more, be sure to check back soon.]

Max and I decided it would be a good idea to shoot a playthrough of the opening chunk of the new Tolkien-verse action game, Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor. As we got further into it, we realized that Shadow of Mordor is some of the most goddamn fun we've had in a game in a while. Above is the first video in our series. You can watch through the whole playlist if you want to see for yourself how badass this game is.

My favorite part of Hyrule Warriors is not at all what I was expecting

I'm only several hours into Hyrule Warriors and while there's already a lot to like here, I think I've figured out what my favorite part of the game is: a song. Specifically, "Zelda's Lullaby." It has been featured prominent...

Heat Signature is already looking hot

Heat Signature was one of the games I most wanted to get my hands on at EGX. Designer Tom Francis was the guy behind Gunpoint, one of my favorites of 2013, and this next title similarly allows a great deal of player expressio...

Playing Alien: Isolation on a convention floor isn't the best idea

Demoing a game like Alien: Isolation at a convention such as EGX or PAX has always been problematic since horror works best when there's time for quieter moments between the scares. There has to be a period of tension buildin...
