Firewatch hits PS4, Steam next week for $20

February got here in a hurry, and that means Firewatch isn't far off. Campo Santo's first-person, wilderness-set mystery game is coming to PlayStation 4, Linux, Mac, and Windows on February 9, 2016. It's going to be $19.99, normally, but th...

 
INFRA IMPRessions
Some games just hand out answers to puzzles -- if you can even call them that -- with numbers or solutions written nearby. While the first-person adventure INFRA does this a bit, it certainly isn't holding your hand most...   read

Danganronpa coming to Steam February 18, with trading cards

Spike Chunsoft has just sent over word of Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc's PC release date -- February 18. It'll be coming by way of Steam, and is priced at $29.99, with a 20% discount at launch, and a soundtrack. Additionally, Steam...

Create your own '80s anime adventure in Starr Mazer

I used to skip Sunday school every weekend I could to watch poorly localized episodes of Tekkaman and Robotech and hang out in my pajamas. I loved them, but even at the time something seemed off about them, stilted dialog and conf...

Sunless Sea celebrates submarines with a free Steam weekend

Sunless Sea is one of those games I wanted to check out last year but never got around to. I guess I should have, because it showed up on a couple of our personal game of the year lists. This weekend, I have even less of an excuse to neglec...

Zack & Wiki is launching on Wii U today in the US

Third-party support was off the chain on the Wii for a while, and that includes the amazing Zack & Wiki: Quest For Barbaros’ Treasure from Capcom. I mean truly, I can't say enough awesome things about this game, and everyone ...

Consortium: The Tower

'Deus Ex combined with Die Hard' is probably a stretch, Consortium

Consortium is back with a Kickstarter campaign for Consortium: The Tower, a follow up to the 2014 original. In my review I said, "It's a little rough -- with the most recent patch, I didn't experience any bugs, though some people are sti...

Minecraft: Story Mode wanders to Wii U this Thursday

Four episodes down, one to go. That's if, like Darren, you're playing Minecraft: Story Mode on something other than Wii U. For that port, you'll have to wait a few more days. The first episode, The Order of the Stone, releases on the Wii U ...

I'm surprised Dragon's Dogma runs as smooth as it does on PC

I'm falling in love with Dragon's Dogma all over again with the PC port. It's not just the fact that it fixes the framerate issues of the console original, but the fact that the updated visuals make everything look new again. The addi...

The Witness is coming to Xbox One too, according to the ESRB

Development for The Witness began back in 2008, and now, we're finally going to see the game in action next week when it launches on PC and PS4. But wait! According to the ESRB, it's coming out on Xbox One as well at some point. Maybe it ha...

Review: Jotun

The response to my review of Freedom Planet was pretty positive, as was the suggestion that I'd be reviewing some older Steam games we may have looked over, so here we are. Jotun slipped us by here at...   read

Aquatic Adventure review
Unlike many others out there, underwater environments tend to be some of my favorite areas in video games. So when something like The Aquatic Adventure of the Last Human comes along which takes place entirely underwater, I ca...   read

I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream is now on iOS, Android

"I have no mouth, and I must scream" isn't just a profoundly cool phrase. It's the name of Harlan Ellison's short story (read it here!) about a malicious computer who endlessly tortures the world's few surviving humans. There was also a fe...

Square Enix's Life is Strange-inspired #EverydayHeroes campaign helps anti-bullying charity

Life is Strange, for the few problems it has, doesn’t shy away from dealing with some intensely personal and dark topics. Playing as a teenage girl in a residential school, one of those topics is, inevitably, bullying. Bullying is on...

CD Projekt Red denies existence of The Witcher 3: Enhanced Edition

The Witcher 3 -- am I right, guys?That's basically all you need to say before a back-patting ceremony ensues, congratulating one another for playing Geralt's latest adventure. It's pretty damn good, and with all of the sales under CD Projek...

Longest Night is a nice little tease for Night in the Woods

While combing through the wasteland that is my pre-holiday-break email, I happened upon a link to Infinite Fall and Finji's Longest Night from our beloved gift-giver Jonathan Holmes. I'm glad I did! This is a short lead-in for the upcomin...

 
Minecraft review
What a weird episode. After the high energy of The Last Place You Look, this one slows down the action shortly into it, and it doesn't really pick back up until the very end, which feels like the end of a season. But then, th...   read

A cartload of Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 4 screenshots

Vacation travel kept me from being able to get to the latest episode in Telltale's Minecraft: Story Mode right away. I just finished it, and as always, I had my finger on the screenshot button the whole way through. Maybe you can use t...

Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 4 will be home for Christmas

It's almost bizarre to think that the first episode of Minecraft: Story Mode was out less than two months ago, and here we are gearing up for the fourth in the series. Episode Four, A Block and a Hard Place releases on PC on December 22, wi...

Lawyer adventure Aviary Attorney hits Steam soon

Can a game like Aviary Attorney carve out a niche for itself? I'm hopeful! This 19th century adventure starring a man who is a lawyer and also a bird intrigued enough people to earn funding through Kickstarter at the beginning of the year. ...

Gone Home going to Xbox One and PS4 in January

Gone Home was announced for consoles a while back, but with rumors that publisher Midnight City was on the verge of collapse, it was easy to guess that the console ports had been quietly dropped. Looks like those easy guesses were wrong, a...

Day of the Tentacle Remastered's slick interface works flawlessly

Here's your first real look at The Walking Dead: Michonne

Second King's Quest chapter out December 15
