Well eight-elevenths of it
The Konami Code has had a ton of in-game applications, but today it can save you some actual real-life money. Amazon has centered its Cyber Monday video game deals around the legendary cheat, making it instantly good for 15 p...
Going into a store is so 1999
If you're curious what Microsoft Store is offering up for Cyber Monday, prepare to be un-surprised -- the deals are essentially the same as they were on Black Friday. If you were too busy or overwhelmed at the time, you might...
Canned in 2008
Eight Days was a pretty ambitious project. So ambitious that Sony canceled it in 2008 after debuting it in 2006. The gist was that it was going to be the biggest open world game of that era, set across eight different US...
At the request of Harada
It's still unknown whether or not the Wii U's Lost Reavers will sport a fair free-to-play scheme, but for now, it's looking interesting enough for me to keep following it. Speaking to Famitsu, producer Katsuhiro Harada (...
Also, a new trailer
It's hard to believe that Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 isn't out yet -- I could have sworn it was set to come out months ago. It's actually going to arrive in February worldwide following a delay, and for no...
Fingering has never been so fun
I've been playing rhythm games since they exploded onto the scene with PaRappa the Rapper in 1997, and having nearly played at least one title of every rhythm game series released I can easily say Superbeat: Xonic is top tier.
But be forewarned, this is the Dark Souls...nay...the 127 Hours of music games, only you get to keep your arms attached.
The Hatsune Miku machine isn't stopping anytime soon.
Sega has just announced that Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X will arrive on March 24, 2016 in Japan, exclusively for the Vita. An Aime card (arcade transfer accesso...
X gon' give it to ya
Xenoblade Chronicles X is certainly one of those games that you probably have to see to believe, rather than simply just taking some stranger's word for it. The written review just doesn't do it enough justice in my humble o...
Oh that Beck he's so wacky
Mighty No. 9 is going for that "kooky weird Saturday morning cartoon" vibe with this new trailer, meant to showcase some of the game's new modes, and that ever-popular brand™ building Minecraft pre-order bonus ski...
Compliments of Tavern Brawl
Hearthstone's Auchenai Soulpriest is up to his old tricks again. As most Priest players know, this card swaps healing powers for damage, setting up some devastating combos if used on the enemy. But in the case of this week's ...
Mario Kart 8 came in with a bang, and ended up lasting quite a while with its two amazing DLC packs. While I still play it on occasion, its fire has unfortunately died down a bit, partially due to the horrible battle mode tha...
Did You Know Gaming
South Park: The Stick of Truth was a pretty ambitious project -- so much so that I didn't think it would ever actually come out. But when it did, it blew my expectations away, and Obsidian had another hit on its hands. ...
I'm really feeling it
When Xenoblade Chronicles was announced for localization on the Wii, my heart skipped a beat. While there are plenty of JRPGs to go around, the more the merrier, and I wouldn't pass up the chance to experience another Monolith Soft game.
I didn't quite have the same reaction to Xenoblade Chronicles X at first, but it really grew on me over time.
Working on it
After a beta snafu, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege is set to launch tomorrow on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One platforms. So where is our review?

'It will not be tolerated'
Ubisoft will not tolerate players who kill off their own teammates in Rainbow Six Siege.
Replying to a fan tweet that asked if there were plans to "to do anything about trolls that kill people on their [own] team," the develo...
Dark Messiah of Might and Chivalry?
Chivalry: Medieval Warfare was absolutely great. Take a load of shouty knights, make them chuck axes and swing swords at each other in a first person melee-fest, and you’ve got yourself a grand ole time. Plus it gets ex...
To be announced at the PS Experience?
I know how many people love this game, so I’ll cut the preamble: Demon’s Souls might be coming to PS4.
The game put From Software on the map, and introduced the format now used yearly for the likes of Dark Souls a...
Sophie's Choice simulator 2015
A test to sort your favorite games has been making the rounds on social media over the past few days. Normally I ignore this sort of thing, but when it seemed to push our own Jonathan Holmes into an existential crisis earlier...
Tentative excitement for Eternal Crusade
Games Workshop isn't the most discerning of license holders. Ever since the demise of THQ, the company has allowed just about anyone to make a video game based on Warhammer 40,000.
The situation has reached the point where D...

More than 80% there with 6 days left
I had thought we'd seen all the cameo characters that Indivisible had to offer, but a few days ago, one the original "indies-on-consoles" icons of gaming was added to the already impressive roster of guest stars. Shantae has...
But you probably don't want to
Every Sunday, Sony posts a lineup of new releases coming to PlayStation systems that week. It's something I check religiously, hoping to discover a gem hidden amongst the big blockbusters.

But I still love it
Lara Croft GO might just be my favorite mobile game of the year. Having played through the campaign twice now, I can safely say there isn't much I'd change about Square Enix Montréal's minimalist puzzler -- though...
The plan: release music on cartridges
We've seen new releases for the Sega Dreamcast come to fruition in the past few years, but a brand new Famicom cartridge is an even more potent throwback. 8-Bit Music Power is a chiptune music compilation from Japanese artist...
Peace Day comes to PC last
In case you missed it, the Metal Gear series has always had a pretty strong anti-nuclear message, and it's never been more literal than in Metal Gear Solid V, the multiplayer "FOB" component of which allows players ...
