The wheels are in motion Telltale seems to be getting into the swing of things with Game of Thrones, in more ways than one. For starters, it only took seven weeks since the last episode for this one to come out. If Telltale can keep up that pace, the... read feature
I've been seeing a few people posting screenshots of this adorably drawn cat game all over Twitter lately and I've had no idea what it was. Thanks to this helpful blog, however, I am now learned. The game is Neko Atsume, an i... read
Hearthstone player Mamytwink is going for a world record: longest turn taken. Setting up a match against a friend, Mamytwink has rigged Blizzard's card game to do a 40+ hour turn, which is slightly longer than the typical 90 ... read
Well, this one snuck up on me. I thought I had been following most of Telltale's releases pretty closely, but it turns out that Game of Thrones Episode 3: The Sword in the Darkness is coming out tomorrow. Who knew?

Amazon is giving away 34 Android apps today, and some of them aren't crap. Take a look!
Consider nabbing Kingdom Rush Origins if you're into tower defense, and Five Nights at Freddy's 2 if you're curious about the animatronic jump-scare craze. Familiar titles like Cut the Rope and World of Goo are in here too, as is the largely unknown but lovable-as-heck Deep Under the Sky. read
Final Fantasy XI is 13 years old. As is the case with 13-year-olds, Square Enix is getting a bit sick of dealing with it.
The PS2 and Xbox 360 versions of the MMO will shut down in March of 2016. Final Fantasy XI's main... read

Another Telltale episode, another excessively large set of screenshots taken as I played through with an Xbox 360 controller while keeping my pinky finger on the F12 key. Tales from the Borderlands still looks great despite t... read

Just because it's running on devices that aren't as powerful as PC or consoles, doesn't mean that Mortal Kombat X tones down the violence for its mobile version. No, judging by this gameplay video, all the skull-crunchi... read
I've got to hand it to Square Enix -- Mevius Final Fantasy does look impressive. Certainly no All the Bravest. I also don't want to play games on my cellphone so this is not for me. So it's fine that it is only coming to iOS and Android in Japan this spring.
Though I am feeling the weird backless, capris overalls at 1:13. Wish I had back muscles like that. read
Yesterday, PAX East attendees were treated to a sneak peak of the trailer for Tales from the Borderlands Episode 2: Atlas Mugged. Today, it is available for mass consumption. Things are heating up on Pandora for Rhys, Fiona,... read
Telltale's panel came and went with some fun stories of the studio's journey but nary an announcement of what the developer is doing now. Judging from the comments in just about every Telltale article that goes up, the second... read
Three-button bliss A glance at Downwell's tricolor palette in still shots doesn't really do it justice. Watching it in motion gives a better idea what it does, but not until actually playing it does it all click. It is built around a simple mec... read feature

Extrasolar has always been a tough sell for hardcore gamers, in my eyes. Though it was one of my top games of last year, most readers tune out when they see a description like "free-to-play science simulator," and going any f... read

"This isn't the BlazBlue game you're looking for," he persuades you with a small wave of the hand.
Okay, maybe it is. Maybe you're in the market for a "gluttonous" rhythm game where you "eat to the beat of BlazBlue." In that ... read
DoDonPachi studio Cave is back with a new mobile shooter, "Gothic Magic Maiden," which is set to arrive in Japan on April 16. Whether it will ever come west seems pretty doubtful, though.

On a few separate occasions this year, I've been reminded that Rez exists and felt a flood of guilt after recalling how long it's been since I last played this ridiculously cool sequence (too long). A new Rez, or Rez HD on c... read
"F-Zero meets Audiosurf" brings some vivid imagery to mind, but after watching the above trailer, I'm not sure I agree with that tagline for the indie racer Spectra. Sure, it's set to some bumpin' Chipzel tracks, but it look... read
