Crossing Souls Kickstarter down to the wire, may come to PS4 and Vita

From the first time I saw footage of Fourattic's nostalgia-bomb of an adventure game Crossing Souls on Kickstarter, I knew something special was going on. Apparently, so did Devolver Digital, as the publisher ...

Adr1ft is a stunning VR space exploration, and it came from a 'f*ck it' mentality
by Brett Makedonski

Adam Orth is a recognizable figure in the videogame industry, but not necessarily for the reasons he should be. He played a creative role in several renowned triple-A titles -- God of War, Medal of Honor, and Twisted Metal are some examples of franchises he worked on -- and that's what he should be known for. Instead, in 2013, Orth found himself the videogame industry's Villain of the Week after his now infamous "deal with it" tweet regarding Xbox One's always online requirement.

It was a tough time for Orth. "I couldn't really talk to anyone. I felt like I let my friends and family down," he said. But, his creative spirit endured. After a week's time went by, Orth got back to doing what he knew best: making videogames. Holed up in his office, he started designing a game about space -- or, more fittingly, a game about an unbelievably desperate situation and being completely alone.

Here are nearly 80 Game of Thrones: Iron From Ice screenshots

Another Telltale game, another set of screenshots. I'm still ambivalent about the oil paint aesthetic used in Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series. Some shots look fantastic, and others are blurry messes with weird kaleido...

Review: Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series: Iron From Ice photo
Review: Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series: Iron From Ice
by Darren Nakamura

The War of the Five Kings might be one of the bleakest collections of events in A Song of Ice and Fire, the series on which HBO's and Telltale's Game of Thrones is based. The entire continent of Westeros is at war, heroes are slain, villains rise to power, and it is around this point that many readers and viewers finally accept that everything will probably not be okay (to put it lightly).

Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series takes place toward the end of the conflict, but that does not mean everyone is safe. The kingdom is undergoing a restructuring of sorts, and those who were allied with the losing factions walk a thin line between loyalty and destruction. House Forrester of Ironrath in the North is one such clan, caught up in a conflict much greater than itself, struggling just to survive.

[Note: spoilers for the source material and events during the prologue of this episode are present in this review. Proceed with caution if you have not yet finished A Storm of Swords (Book Three) or Season Three of the HBO series.]

This Batman: Arkham Knight trailer is disappointing

The first Ace Chemicals Infiltration video for Batman: Arkham Knight rekindled my excitement and, looking over your comments, I was far from alone in that regard. But this? Come on now. It's almost entirely scripted footage ...

SSX, Worms Battlegrounds free with Xbox Live Gold in December photo
SSX, Worms Battlegrounds free with Xbox Live Gold in December
by Jordan Devore

November is almost over, which means more free-with-Xbox-Live-Gold games to look at and hopefully remember to download once they're actually available.

Throughout December, Xbox One users with a paid subscription can nab Worms Battlegrounds at no extra charge. Xbox 360 players can claim The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief (*shrugs*) from December 1 - 15, and then SSX from December 15 - 31.

I've cooled on SSX over the years (the 2012 title, I mean, not the whole series; SSX Tricky is still in the running for my desert-island game of choice) but for free, yeah, it's worth playing.

As for The Raven, it's an episodic crime adventure from King Art Games set in 1960s Paris. But, more importantly, there's this screenshot:
