Monster Tale Ultimate coming to 3DS

Monster Tale was a great little metroidvania on the original DS. Despite its cartoony look, it featured engaging combat that focused on juggle combos. It felt almost like a 2D version of the Batman: Arkham Asylum combat, wher...

Faith in gaming: The influence of Christianity in videogames photo
Faith in gaming: The influence of Christianity in videogames
by Ben Davis

Religion is not something that is discussed much when talking about videogames, even though many games often feature religious themes and stories based on religious texts. It's difficult to avoid these things, since religion has had such an enormous influence on all cultures, so of course we're going to see it making its way into videogames.

I've always appreciated seeing religious themes in games, even though I'm not religious myself. The folklore is very interesting to learn about, and it's not something I've spent a lot of my time reading up on by myself, so experiencing it in a videogame is about as close as I'm gonna get. Christianity in particular seems to be quite rare in videogames, but there are plenty of quality examples if you know where to look.

Here are a few specific examples of Christianity's influence in videogames:

The first and only big story piece of downloadable content released for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel earlier this week, and I just finished playing through it. As usual, I took a bunch of screenshots as I played through. Fair ...

Experience Points .09: Final Fantasy IX photo
Experience Points .09: Final Fantasy IX
by Ben Davis

Experience Points is a series in which I highlight some of the most memorable things about a particular game. These can include anything from a specific scene or moment, a character, a weapon or item, a level or location, a part of the soundtrack, a gameplay mechanic, a line of dialogue, or anything else about the game that is particularly noteworthy and/or awesome.

This series will no doubt contain spoilers for the games being discussed, so keep that in mind if you plan on playing the game for the first time.

This entry is all about Final Fantasy IX. Feel free to share some of your own favorite things about the game in the comments!

What if videogame consoles were Transformers? photo
What if videogame consoles were Transformers?
by Mike Cosimano

This isn't clickbait. This isn't some article cashing in on hypothetical fan art of an Xbox turning into Megatron or a post about those awesome Mega Drive/PlayStation Transformers. This is my life, you fools. I've spent time pouring over this existential question. The world needs to know: what if videogame consoles were Transformers? Here are the Transformers they would be, mostly framed through the IDW comics because those are rad.

You're welcome.

Obscure Video Games: Oh No!

"Oh no!" is what I say whenever I hear somebody's put out another runner game. I completely lost interest in the genre years ago. However, back in 2000, it was still a fairly novel concept. That's when Asmik Ace Entertainment...

Weekend Deals: $10 Skyrim Legendary, 25% Off GTA V PC photo
Weekend Deals: $10 Skyrim Legendary, 25% Off GTA V PC
by Dealzon

Whether its fighting random dragons or avoiding helicopter spawns, there's lots of solid deals this weekend for PC gamers.

If you know for sure you're going to buy Grand Theft Auto V on PC on release day next month, you can snag 25% off this weekend via our special code here. [Edit: Code expires Monday, 3/30 at 5pm Pacific!] For $45, you'll get to enjoy RockStar's DRM and play a 1.5 year old game. Seriously, best deal of the century.

The same digital retailer is running a sale on a ton of Bethesda titles including the Elder Scroll V: Skryim Legendary Edition for only $10. The deal is so good that the title is currently "out of stock" - but GMG is guaranteeing that every purchase thru the weekend will receive a copy by March 31st.

In the console department, things are a bit more light but there's a pretty good deal on a Mario Party 10 + amiibo combo for $52 at Newegg - though uh, the title hasn't exactly won raving reviews.

New horror visual novel resurrects the Sega Genesis

Cowboy Erron Black revealed for Mortal Kombat X

Erron Black is the hot new Clint Eastwood-like character revealed in the above trailer for Mortal Kombat X. He's like a cooler gun-slinging version of Stryker, the silly cop character from earlier Mortal Kombat games. So when do we get to see Nightwolf appropriately kill Erron Black? Because that needs to happen stat, you hear me Netherrealm Studios!?

Space Sluggers is chaotic and so incredibly cheesy

I'm quite a fan of old-school action shoot-'em-ups. Back in the day, I used to venture off to an arcade at my local pizza place and just chill out. With particular titles like Ikari Warriors, Smash TV, and Commando focusing o...
