TowerFall Ascension hits Vita next week

TowerFall Ascension is such a treat for local arena game fans. It's even better with the Dark World expansion, which is worth getting for the fantastic new co-op levels alone. Both are about to arrive on PlayStation Vita and PlayStation TV ...

Starbound's combat update should make fighting more interesting

I'll admit: my hype for Starbound is nowhere near the level where it was two years ago. Being in beta for that long can do that. After my group exhausted the quest lines for the first iteration, we never really went back, despite a big upda...

Heart Forth, Alicia is really coming along

The latest Kickstarter update for Heart Forth, Alicia is a lot to get through. There's been a delay -- from Q1 2016 to the second half of the year -- but rather than just give a basic explanation for the change of plans, the developers have...

It's a great time to get back into Super Mario Maker. As of tonight's update, we can now place mid-level checkpoints. Finally! They're going to have such a big impact on my willingness to clear people's levels. To add a checkpoint to your c...

"Sadistic" 2D arena arcade Penarium is coming to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 22, 2015. Willy (snigger) is trapped in a "sinister circus," and the only hope of seeing his family again is to "run and jump his way past an array...

 
Castle Crashers review
In 2008, Castle Crashers rekindled my dormant love of beat-'em-ups. It had imaginative characters, strange and varied locales, and the four-player co-op was great at encouraging friendly competition. There wasn't much else li...   read

N++ is even bigger and more difficult than we thought

N++ released back in July with a bold claim: "No way anyone 100%s it." Given its enormous level select screen featuring more than a thousand levels and the brutal difficulty the series is known for, it seemed fair enough to make that statem...

Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows looks wonderful

Plague of Shadows looks like the perfect excuse to get back into Shovel Knight. It's a free expansion that remixes the game to tell an alternate story about the Plague Knight. Between his customizable bomb-based moveset and some new areas a...

Now there's a shoot-'em-up in Mario Maker

Super Mario Maker isn't out until September 11 and I'm already feeling inadequate. At this rate, any level I dream up will pale in comparison to what we're seeing on YouTube. I'll give it my best anyway. The folks at GameXplain have crafted...

Terraria hits Mac and Linux at long last

Several years later, Terraria is still going strong. After a round of open beta testing, the Mac and Linux versions of the popular sandbox game have launched. If you're a Windows player, you won't need to pay for these new ports, and all th...

Iconoclasts finally gets a release announcement: Steam and Sony systems in 2016

N++ has one hell of a stylish launch trailer

I'm thrilled and terrified to dig into N++. Darren and I have been reminiscing about the cooperative levels in its predecessor, N+, so pain is fresh on my mind. These games are brutal but fair and so satisfying. If you're new to them, take ...

Shovel Knight headed to retail with a proper instruction manual

Shovel Knight is one of those games that's so good, you want as many people as possible to hear about it, play it, and hopefully dig it as much as you do. To that end, some good news: Yacht Club Games is pushing for a retail launch on Octob...

Belated Father's Day: Throw babies in Dad Beat Dads

True story: my dad used to be quite the brawler. At a stocky 5'5" (165 cm), he was often underestimated. What he lacks in height and reach he makes up for in tenacity. What I'm trying to say is that I'm pretty sure my dad could beat up you...

Oh, right, Super Meat Boy is going to break me

Terraria is coming to Wii U and 3DS

Rogue Legacy is still awesome (and aggravating) on Xbox One

The last couple of times we talked about Rogue Legacy coming to Xbox One, a bunch of you let the good vibes flow, so here's the bookend to that coverage: it's available now for $14.99. Better yet, the title is only $11.99 (20 percent off) f...

Xbox One owners can explore Rogue Legacy on May 27

As someone with a lot of experience in the realm of Sentai, let me say that first impressions dont always hold, and those awful suits that look like they belong more in a bike race might look great in motion! Otherwise, theres always your imagination!
