Severed continues to look rad as hell in its final release trailer

Never thought I'd be excited about a Vita release in 2016, but Severed, the latest title from the developers of Guacamelee! is just about the coolest thing I've seen in months. Described as a mix of Mega Man, Infinity Blade, and Punch-...

NieR: Automata

NieR: Automata screens are hot as hell

While I have at least heard the lauded soundtrack, I also have not played Nier, the cult classic RPG that Square Enix is bafflingly bringing back with Platinum Games at the helm. We interviewed them after the PS4-exclusive iNieR: Automata ...

 
Katana Zero preview
Solo developer Askiisoft is no stranger to creating challenging games. Tower of Heaven and Pause Ahead both gave me a run for my money (even as freeware), and the upcoming action title Katana Zero is no exception. The ga...   read

Uncharted 4 gets serious

One last Uncharted 4 trailer for the road

I'm not sure headline limitations and economy allow for it, but "One last Uncharted 4 trailer for the last of us" was my initial joke, but then I felt like it'd take explanation and at that point you're pushing the boundaries of what is a ...

 
We Happy Few preview
If everybody was super happy all the time, the world would be a better place, right? But what if that happiness was forced upon society in the form of a drug? Things may not actually be as pleasant as they seem. Compulsion Ga...   read

Nice Okami nod, Monster Hunter Generations

Monster Hunter has the cameo-appearance situation on lock. If we're talking about a character from a Nintendo- or Capcom-published series, chances are they've shown up in one form or another as a fun extra, whether it's just their trademar...

When the frame rate is so bad, it makes you ill

I hadn't really heard of Lichdom: Battlemage until our recent post about its new PlayStation 4 and Xbox One ports -- they're $49.99 a piece, or bizarrely enough you could just get the PC version for $1.99 in a bundle -- and now here it is ...

#Icarus is the new #Darksiders2

I spent part of my day playing the Mirror's Edge Catalyst beta. Pretty good! I'm basically in agreement with Steven's recent preview. Outside some of the junk that DICE shoved in, probably at the behest of EA to satiate the masses that...

This Dragon Quest Heroes II development update video is adorable

Want to know what's up with Dragon Quest Heroes II? After a lovely little intro featuring some of the development leads programming themselves into a classic 8-bit rendition of the world, there's also a ton of gameplay to watch, with some k...

 
HANDS-ON STE-VIEWS
I can't remember a single character from the original Mirror's Edge, a game I love a lot. DICE's (Battlefield) unexpected cult hit, now eight years old, was laudable. The first-person perspective offered a refined, grounded f...   read

Iron Banner returns to Destiny next week

After its big April update, Destiny is welcoming back Iron Banner on April 26 at 10AM PT, ending on May 2. Yet again it will host the Clash gametype. Bungie is also making a few improvements, which includes the ability to get more actu...

If you were banned in Dark Souls III, it was probably by accident

Dark Souls III has an interesting ban system. Since online play is crucial to the experience it would suck to have it removed outright, so you're put into a pool with other cheaters/banned players. You can still play, but it's not the same....

This artwork of Dark Souls III's best boss fight is killer

The talented Ömer Tunç has a pretty amazing collection of his works over at ArtStation, but one in particular really stood out to me. As my favorite fight in Dark Souls III by far, the illustration below made me just want to co-...

Is that a Phurba dagger in his pocket or is Nathan Drake just happy to be 'powered' by GameStop?

Along with four separate editions of the game (get it, Uncharted FOUR?), Naughty Dog's alleged last entry in the series (or in Drake's story, at least) also has pre-order boners bonuses, including retail-specific ones. Quote Chris, "DLC is...

PlayStation gamers can finally play Shadow Complex next month

Shadow Complex? Still great! It's a thrill to start out with little more than a flashlight only to eventually become this supersuit-wearing force of nature that can walk off missile strikes and stare down mechs. Chair Entertainment brought...

 
Star Fox Zero review
Depending on how it's wielded, nostalgia can either be a powerful tool or a crippling crutch. No publisher knows this better than Nintendo. Star Fox Zero is obvious in its pitch -- "Did you like Star Fox 64? Okay, then y...   read

Here's how to get the deadly Armor of Thorns in Dark Souls III

Dark Souls III has only been out for roughly a week, and people have already come up with all sorts of hilarious ways to game its player-versus-player element. One such strategy is to use the Armor of Thorns which does damage to other playe...

Mirror's Edge Catalyst recommended PC specs are rough

A pal just explained to me that 16GB of RAM is "the new standard," so maybe you're all immune to the sticker shock, but I've still only got 8GB of RAM, damn it, so a literally doubled recommendation? That's pretty big. I wonder how much lon...

Supergiant Games' third project is Pyre, and it's at PAX East this week

After knocking it out of the park with Bastion and Transistor, Supergiant Games has revealed its third project, simply titled Pyre. Not content with a mere set of screenshots, there's a full trailer available ahead of the game's debut ...

Where was this scene in Dark Souls III?

So, Dark Souls III, guys! Pretty dang good. Not enough creepy trees (Cursed Greatwood was such a creepy boss, loved it), but still dang good. And it's selling like fire right now. I played it on Xbox One last month by hacking Japan/buy...

Mafia III really snuck up on us - it's out in October and has a Season Pass

2K Games has announced that Mafia III, a game that I frequently forget exists, is coming on October 7, 2016. It's slated for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One platforms. All told I was never a huge Mafia fan per se, but I am interested in seei...

There's some messed-up stuff in this Let it Die teaser

I want to vacay in Hitman's Sapienza

Despite my confident, casual unholstering of the word "vacay," I've never actually taken a vacation, on account of all the poverty. Still, feels good to dream, and Hitman's take on Italy looks downright idyllic. I mean, not the weird bit wi...

Bandai Namco: Dark Souls III 'fastest selling title in American branch's history'

Trine developer's new game, Shadwen, sneaks onto PC and PS4 in May

People are flipping Quantum Break PC codes on eBay, effectively halving the price for everyone

One of Microsoft's selling points of Quantum Break for platform-agnostic people was that those who pre-ordered the game on Xbox One would get a bonus copy on Windows 10 PC. In an effort to bolster its PC gaming presence, Microsoft even...
