These gifs for The Wild XYZ speak to me

This cool little top-down action/adventure game, The Wild XYZ, caught my eye on Tumblr today. It began life as as a prototype for the Space Cowboy Jam, and designer Joseph Gribbin has been chipping away at completing it in hi...

Actually, there are shields in Bloodborne

There are shields in Bloodborne after all, SCE Japan Studio has confirmed to IGN. Well I'll be. Shields will seem like a comfort to Souls players who haven't yet experienced the faster, in-your-face action of Bloodborne, but ...

There's a new Warhammer game about shooting and slicing rat-men with your friends

It's not a day-making new Space Marine or Dawn of War, but as far as Games Workshop adaptations go, Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide (PC, PS4, Xbox One) seems neat. As a cooperative first-person shooter / melee-combat game ...

Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin is more than just a remaster photo
Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin is more than just a remaster
by Alessandro Fillari

I'll be the first to say it: it's going to be the year of Souls. With the release of Bloodborne only a month away, which looks to redefine the experience along with its wonderful change of setting, From Software has been busy as of late. But that's not stopping the studio from re-releasing its previous title Dark Souls II for new audiences on new hardware.

Recently, the developers released an update for existing versions of Dark Souls II for all players, adding in an invasion faction, characters, and even new encounters. Of course, this is to ease them into what Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin has to offer. Though there's been little information about what to expect from this revisit, the folks behind the title had a lot to say about it.

At a special Bandai Namco Games event last week, Destructoid got to go hands-on with the new and improved version of Dark Souls II and chat with Bandai Namco global producer Atsuo Yoshimura. Though many see it as simply a remaster, From Software thinks of it as much more.

You can beat Dying Light with no weapons, just punches and dropkicks

Not long removed from Dying Light's recent release, one boy decided to play through the entire game engaging only its best elements. That is, running around and drop kicking fools. It's dubbed the Jean Claude Van Damme run and its the only correct way to play a game that has drop kicks.  More games need drop kicks.

Gundam Vs-like 2-on-2 arena fighter Rise of Incarnates on Steam

Namco took the format of Gundam Vs. and brought it west with a new IP, the free-to-play Rise of Incarnates.  After some time in beta, Rise of Incarnates is now in Early Access. And unlike some games ...

New Devil May Cry video will melt your face

For me, it's really hard to drum up a lot of excitement for remakes or remasters. If I've already played them, then why do I need to play again? And if I didn't play the first time, then why would I want to now? I'm a discer...

The Order: 1886 collector's edition is unboxed, under fire

Third-person shooter protagonists spend a bulk of their time glued to chest-high walls, so it's fitting that the highlight of The Order: 1886's collector's edition depicts this very action. In this unboxing video that P...

Glasses, tattoos, origins: A taste of Bloodborne's character creator

In this short runthrough of Bloodborne's character editor, IGN was able to create a Harry Potter lookalike now that glasses are an option in the game. That's a worthwhile addition, but it's the "Origin" (i.e., class) option ...

Review: Dolphin Up photo
Review: Dolphin Up
by Ben Davis

Let it be said that I am not one to pass up a good dolphin game. Or even a mediocre dolphin game. Seriously, just give me some dolphins and I'm happy!

At first glance, Dolphin Up may seem like a mobile title, and that's probably because it actually started out on those devices. It's a sequel to Dolphin Olympics, and has been available on mobile markets for a couple years now.

Now it's finally coming to consoles years later with a Wii U release.

Review: Apotheon photo
Review: Apotheon
by Patrick Hancock

Apotheon is the newest game from the developers at Alientrap, the team behind a small game called Capsized. Now personally, I loved Capsized and think it was overlooked by most. It had interesting mechanics and a plot that wasn't told through lines and lines of dialogue. It left a huge impression on me and I knew to look forward to whatever that team did in the future.

Well, the future is now, and Apotheon is out. It certainly lives up to the high standard set forth by Capsized, and pushes the bar even further. With an art style that is bound to get people's attention, this is a game can keep the attention with rock-solid gameplay.

Someone leaked more over-the-top Just Cause 3 screens

Rico Rodriguez's not a man that acts in moderation. We're not likely to see screenshots of him grabbing brunch at that great spot down the street, or hanging laundry to dry. He'd probably dry his laundry by blowing up the ent...

Wonder Boy creator working on new Wonder Boy-esque game

While covering the action-adventure platformer Flying Hamster II last year, I said that fans of the Wonder Boy / Monster World series would want to take a look, and that's even more true today. The Kickstarter may have failed...

PS4 gets Bloodborne bundle in Europe, procedural Chalice Dungeons explained

Here's the lowdown on Bloodborne's procedurally generated Chalice Dungeons that are different depending on what item combination you use to summon them. It's different from Dark Souls' hand-crafted precision, but it could ke...

Review: Gunman Clive 2 photo
Review: Gunman Clive 2
by Chris Carter

I don't think anyone, including the game's creator, expected Gunman Clive to be such a massive hit. As an homage to retro platformers it was a joy to play, and the ridiculously cheap base price made it easy to take the plunge.

Gunman Clive 2 delivers pretty much everything you'd want out of a sequel, even if it doesn't push the envelope.

Oh, nice, Future Press is doing a hardcover Bloodborne strategy guide

I know, I know -- you don't need a guide for Bloodborne just like you didn't need any assistance with Dark Souls or Demon's Souls or King's Field. You're that good. Or, more likely, you just wanted to go in as blindly as poss...
