I don't understand what's going on with Laura's dual hairstyle and likely never will. But it doesn't even matter! She's still a cool addition to the Street Fighter V roster. We already showed you her debut trailer, so how abo...

Zangief can't seem to keep his mouth closed

What a goof
Oct 01
// Jordan Devore
You saw Zangief's Street Fighter V introduction trailer. Now let's look at a bunch of pictures of him with his mouth agape and one incredible shot in which he has the flesh tone of a hotdog. This game makes for a pretty good gallery.

The Stanley Parable writer's new game releases this week

The Beginner's Guide

Normally, what we have here would hardly be worth a post. All we have are a handful of weird screenshots, a barren teaser website, and the following description: The Beginner's Guide is a narrative video game ...

Mushroom 11 spreads its spores on October 15

National Mushroom Day
Sep 28
// Darren Nakamura
Back when I first played Mushroom 11, more than a ago at PAX East 2014, it was a cool concept. Judging by the launch trailer below (and Brett's preview from earlier this year), Untame has really expanded on that concept, work...

// Brett Makedonski
I write, you read -- that's the arrangement we have here. It has worked fabulously for the past three years (except for those of you who hate me). As if a substitute teacher were in class, I'm going to take it a bit easy on y...

Sep 25
// Jordan Devore
If you've been thinking about upgrading to New 3DS but don't want the XL model, today is the day. The standard New 3DS is out now in North America along with some swappable cover plates. For the time being, the only way to ge...

Sep 25
// Chris Carter
Today, the Retro 3-Pack amiibo set went on sale, consisting of Duck Hunt, R.O.B., and Game & Watch. It's available for $34.99, and in an unprecedented manner, Nintendo seems to have overproduced this particular set, as it...

New gameplay screens
Sep 23
// Steven Hansen
Welp, we got the trailer and the into-2016-delay for Persona 5 out of Tokyo Game Show 2015. Not unexpected. There are some more details and a good look at new characters in the latest Famitsu. Most of the gallery below is st...

Originally announced as just "Paladins," Hi-Rez's free-to-play team-based shooter Paladins: Champions of the Realm is set to have card collection and a sort of deck-building aspect. Details were scant during the announcement,...

Sep 17
// Jordan Devore
What stands out to you at Tokyo Game Show 2015? Nioh, yeah? It's got that Onimusha / Souls thing going for it, which is a damn good thing to have. More details have come out for the Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja action-RPG, as re...

We've been patiently awaiting Braid designer Jonathan Blow's next game for years, and it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that we'll have to continue being patient a while longer. The Witness has locked in a seemingly fin...

There are so many good looking people at Tokyo Game Show that it's hard to focus on the more important six new seasonal varieties of Boss coffee that we haven't tried yet. Granted, these are professional cosplayers and booth ...

Look at the people and stuff
Tokyo Game Show feels pretty good this year. Sure, it's a far cry from the extravagance of ten years ago and before, but it's not the all-mobile wasteland it was doomed to be according to some Internet dudebros. It feels heal...

Ongoing coverage of J-games all weekend
Pale American guys blogging about Japanese video games is a thing that is happening!  It hasn't stopped raining in 24 hours, hence our sloppy Mary Poppins cosplay and moistness. If you've never trekked into Tokyo Game Sh...

Fun times, probably, if I could remember
Are we already two weeks removed from PAX Prime 2015? It depends if you respect the tacked on Monday and also remember we're in Year 3 or so of Luigi and, man, does it even have weeks? Time, it moves at a constant rate throug...

Sep 08
// Jordan Devore
I didn't complete Dragon's Dogma, but I'd like to give it another try one day. Preferably on PC. That hasn't been an option yet, but it will be next year. Capcom is bringing the expanded Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen to Windows...

Resident Evil 0's Wesker Mode is absurd

Look at him run!
Sep 01
// Jordan Devore
The Resident Evil series is no stranger to silly modes, and I'm glad to see Capcom continue down that path with Wesker Mode in next year's Resident Evil 0 HD remaster. Uroboros? Uroboros. In the new mode, Albert Wesker fills in for Billy Coen and oh my god, his sprint is hilarious.

I had forgotten about Tom Clancy's EndWar Online. It was originally announced just about two years ago, took on some alpha playtesters, and went dark to everybody else. Today, it is coming out of alpha and into a closed beta ...

The Street Fighter Alpha series doesn't get enough credit these days. Hell, Alpha 3 is one of my favorite games in the entire franchise. Thankfully Alpha is getting its due in Street Fighter V, as Capcom has j...

We know a whole lot about Fallout 4 in terms of gameplay details, but very little in the way of the story. That's for the best, but Bethesda is trickling out info every week, including the fact that Fallout 4 will c...

Remember when Acclaim offered $10,000 to parents who named their kid "Turok?" I still get a good laugh out of that whenever I think of the series. Beyond that legacy they were actually fun little shooters, and now both Turok&...
