3DS action-RPG Sadame coming to the West


Oni hunter
Feb 11
// Jordan Devore
This is my first time seeing Sadame, a top-down action-RPG from Mebius and Rising Star Games, and I'm on board. The basic premise: a samurai, ninja, monk, and rogue battle demons in Japan's Sengoku period, earning better equ...

When Need for Speed heads to PC on March 15, 2016, it'll support manual transmission, and the oft-requested feature will also show up in a future update for the game on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Electronic Arts announced th...

Celebrating 20 years in style
Feb 10

Some new, 20th anniversary Pokemon junk is going on sale in Japan this month. February 27, if you want to plan a trip around it. Playing up the re-releases of Red, Blue, and Yellow (and their subsequent themed 2DS models in J...

See just how much the gameplay has changed in Valkyria: Azure Revolution


Guess it really ISN'T a strategy game...
Feb 10
// Steven Hansen
It's been clear from the get-go that Valkyria: Azure Revolution is a spinoff from the Valkyria Chronicles series that graced the PS3 and PSP. It is much more anime-y, there are overwrought swords and melee combat, as well as...

Casual dragon board game Tsuro out on iOS now


I'm tsure of it
Feb 04
// Darren Nakamura
Tsuro is the type of game that hits the table during parties at the ol' Casa de Nakamura. It caters to people who aren't especially experienced with modern board games, it doesn't take up a lot of table space, and it seats up...

Modern Where's Waldo-like Hidden Folks is mesmerizing


This could be a screensaver
Feb 04
// Darren Nakamura
Certainly, the drawings shown here are works of art on their own, but Hidden Folks really comes alive in motion. It's a far cry from the last Where's Waldo game I remember playing, which featured a series of low-res pixel art...

Here's a giant playable Famicom controller, because why not


Those kids!
Feb 01
// Chris Carter
Over at the Game Party event in Japan, one major booth stood out -- a giant NES (Famicom) controller. And not just any controller, as this one actually worked, allowing people to hop up and play Super Mario Bros. with it. As ...

You've got the right stuff, Detective Pikachu


This freakin' game
Jan 29
// Jordan Devore
I've been following Great Detective Pikachu for years, and what a journey it has been. There was a time when we just had a scant few seconds of nightmarish facial-capture footage to go on for the 3DS game and even then, in it...

Harvest Moon-like Stardew Valley is out on February 26


Let's go live there
Jan 29
// Darren Nakamura
It seems like it's been forever since we last checked in on Stardew Valley, a pixel art farming life simulator/role-playing game that evokes memories of Harvest Moon in those fortunate enough to have played it in its prime (o...

Hot new Dark Souls III screens include eerie tiny king


New Dark Souls locations, characters
Jan 27
// Steven Hansen
Ah, screenshots. Some real classic, old-school video game journalism. More than anything I want to know what it is that compelled Bandai Namco to put out new Dark Souls III screens on a Wednesday night. Maybe something's fun ...

Final Fantasy XV's January 30 update will detail stealth, magic


Oh and have some new screens
Jan 26
// Chris Carter
Square Enix has been peppering in "Active Time Report" updates for some time now, which are basically just big livestreams that detail more information for Final Fantasy XV. Normally I'd be over a gigantic hype campaign ...

Street Fighter V's full story will be post-launch DLC


Free story expansion coming in summer
Jan 25

Street Fighter IV had a good grip of 2D animated cutscenes providing some closure to individual characters' Arcade mode arcs, but as a whole the series has been spinning its wheels in that department, especially compared to ...

Space Hulk: Deathwing looks really cool


Good genes
Jan 22
// Jordan Devore
In recent years, a bunch of different games have drawn from Games Workshop properties. Some were good. Many weren't. I have long since learned to not get too invested pre-release. It's just easier that way. But there is one...

After a long holiday, Bungie is back to work this week. For the first update of the new year, Destiny will be adding an event not unlike the Festival of the Lost from Halloween. Except since this one is coming in February, it...

According to the trailer below, the long-awaited OmniBus is finally on its way, after a two-decade toil in development hell. Also according to the trailer below, it has made the cover of Time, Forbes, and Rolling Stone. Somet...

Screenshots from the Steven Universe game that will never be


We are the pixel gems

Steven Universe: Attack the Light! is a pretty dang good mobile role-playing game. But just because that exists doesn't mean we can't lament what will never be. Developer and artist Christina Antoinette Neofotistou tweeted ou...

Jan 10

You know who didn't shank a gimme field goal wide left? Sega, with new screenshots for Valkyria Chronicles Remaster, the PS4 port for the beloved turn-based strategy game. Sega had an easy task, especially after the nice PC r...

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. Mayb...

The titillating environments of Dead or Alive Xtreme 3


She's a looker, alright
Dec 17
// Brett Makedonski
It's a damn shame that Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 isn't coming to the west, because, as these newly released screens show, the game has some amazing lookin' environments. It's obvious that Team Ninja put a lot of love and care into the gorgeous aesthetics. Makes me wish I could trade the chilly December weather for a Caribbean island right now!

When Ryu released for Super Smash Bros. earlier this year, he brought with him a cool piece of art (though Wii Fit Trainer looks more like a bodybuilder than a yoga instructor in it). Thankfully, it was a tradition continued ...

Ah, the '90s. We were much younger back then. Some readers today might not have even been alive or sapient. Let me tell you something about the '90s. There were lots of cartoons. Some of them were good. Only '90s kids could p...

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 ...

Steven mentioned in his review that he would buy and carry around a dedicated handheld for Downwell. I've had the thought that it would be great on a Wii U GamePad oriented vertically. This might be the closest either of us w...

There's no snow where I live, thank goodness, but it is cold and rainy. Gloomy vibes all around with no end in sight. I don't want to think about it, so excuse me for a moment while I get distracted by these warm screenshots ...

New Level-5 RPG coming to PS4
I was just thinking recently about how quiet Level-5 has been with Ni no Kuni since 2013's Wrath of the White Witch and, well, there's that. During the PlayStation Experience, Namco Bandai (its international publisher) annou...

The third episode for Minecraft: Story Mode is out today, and it's actually not half bad. I think I took more screenshots this time around than in the first two episodes as a result. Going through these after the fact, it's o...
