Not a Hero review photo
I can be your hero, baby
Roll7 has received much adulation distilling skateboarding into pixel-based 2D fun with OlliOlli so it's not surprising that the team has been able to do the same with cover-based shooting. But OlliOlli's pixels belie the pol... read feature

The Hotline Miami Story covers the making of this trippy series


Cocaine Cowboys and Neon Lights
May 07
I still remember how the original Hotline Miami suddenly came out of nowhere and left an incredible impression on those who took a chance on it. It was such an unusual title. Its bright, vivid visuals, along with the overhea... read

Fun fact: Rabbits from the future cause 86% of violent crime

In the not-so-golden era of tiered pre-order pricing shenanigans, shady downloadable content marketing, and other distasteful practices, it makes one wonder: whatever happened to the beloved demo build? Ap... read

One last Titan Souls trailer to prepare you for your journey


Well, it won't really prepare you

Let's face it: Nothing can adequately prepare you for the undertaking that Titan Souls presents. Every bit of pre-exposure is nothing more than wishful thinking. Because, when you come face to face with those towering m... read

In the shadow of Shadow of the Colossus
I've always clamored for the all-boss-fights game. Shadow of the Colossus, an inescapable inspiration here, did it right and others have done it wrong, like Prince of Persia (2008), but I love the idea of removing fluff encou... read feature

Oh good, there's a PC demo for Titan Souls


Shoot the core!

Titan Souls is a certain kind of game for a certain kind of person. It's stripped down. Refined. Your fragile hero will die in one hit, and he's only got a single arrow with which to kill numerous monsters that would serve as... read

A Serious Sam voice pack for The Talos Principle is weird and awesome

Apr 01
The Talos Principle is a puzzler that requires deep and philosophical thought. Serious Sam is, well, it's pretty much the exact opposite. That's why it's so excellent that the latter will be doing voicework for the ... read

If there's one thing we can all agree upon re: Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, it's that Dennaton Games did an exceptional job matching songs with the tone and feel of specific levels. This series wouldn't be what it is -- a ... read

There's a fun little Easter egg at the end of Hotline Miami 2


Spoilers: don't expect it to actually happen though
Mar 10
After completing Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, the credits roll and a suspicious title screen appears. Funnily enough I raced to click "New Game" and it ended up being part of the ending, promptly rewinding back to the Hotline 2 main menu after a few seconds. Spoilers below and in the gallery as to what the Easter egg is. read

More of the old ultraviolence
For some, Hotline Miami was an existential look at the current macro-state of videogames. You were told to commit random acts of murder seemingly without remorse, and at the end, you get a bit of interesting commentary on the... read feature

Downwell at PAX East photo

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
