Don't Starve: Shipwrecked leaves Early Access next week

If you were waiting until Don't Starve's latest expansion worked its way through Steam Early Access before giving it any attention, much less paying $4.99 to play it, know that it's almost time to circle back. Shipwrecked launches for real ...

Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 5 releasing March 29

After playing the previous episode, A Block and a Hard Place, I said it felt like the true end of the season. Not only did it wrap up the main story arc, it also ended Telltale's string of quick releases for the series. The shortest wait be...

Watch this new 7th Dragon III Code: VFD trailer

Usually the phrase "abuse of power" isn't leading anywhere you want to follow. There's the lurid, with top-level employees pressuring underlings into some fingerlings if you follow what I meanaling. There are rulers of countries (America, ...

Deadlight returns with a director's cut this June

As much as it's a surprise to see Deep Silver and Abstraction bring back Deadlight of all things with an enhanced edition, I wouldn't mind it if we got more of these Xbox Live Arcade revivals. Folks who went through the last console genera...

Zerg terror Dehaka confirmed for Heroes of the Storm

Blizzard spilled the beans today -- Dehaka is coming to Heroes of the Storm as a Warrior that cannot mount, but can burrow into any bush or vent on the map with a 40 second cooldown. Whoa! He'll be the game's 50th character, and new sc...

Tyranny is Obsidian's new RPG in the Pillars-style

Now that it has been thoroughly expanded, Pillars of Eternity can be left to sit and digest while folks work on that Triple Crown achievement. In the meantime, though, Obsidian has a new game in the Pillars of Eternity style called Tyranny...

Wow, we're getting Trails in the Sky the 3rd after all

No, XSEED wasn't screwing with us with that "So a priest and a nun walk into a game" tweet. You can relax, Kyle and friends. The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky the 3rd will in fact see a Western release for PC (and only PC) in 2017, th...

The next Hearthstone expansion is 'Whispers of the Old Gods'

Kalypso's new IP Urban Empire crosses SimCity and Civilization

Today is just a city-builder kind of day, eh? Earlier we looked at Devolver's slick new eco-friendly neighborhood builder Block'hood, and now we've got our eyes on a new IP from Kalypso Media (best known for the Tropico series). Urban Empir...

Block'hood brings calm thoughtfulness to building sims

It's always refreshing to see a video game take on important human issues that aren't just love or war. Most city-building simulators require careful planning, balancing different zones for maximum happiness under a budget. Block'hood looks...

Fulcrum is one slick-looking snowboarding game

I'm hurting for more snowboarding games and I know I'm not alone. This one, Fulcrum, deserves a spot on our radar. It's a collaboration between Phosfiend Systems (Fract OSC) and designer Ben Swinden, who says, "We'd been thinking about for ...

Whoa, where did Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight come from?

It's not every day I come across a cool-looking new game that turns out to be a part of a long-running series, but Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight is precisely that. It's the fourth installment in Bombservice's line of 2D action-platf...

Teslagrad is getting a 3D action-adventure follow-up

Rain Games did quite well for itself with the magnetic puzzle-platformer Teslagrad. While its next game won't be a direct sequel, it's another adventure, and it's even set in that same universe. World to the West stars four disparate charac...

Zen fish adventure Koi will be the first Chinese-developed game on PS4

With so many action-packed games to play, sometimes it's nice to temper the experience with something more chill. Koi catches the eye in the same way flOw did during the last generation. It just looks like a relaxing thing to do in order to...

Nintendo Badge Arcade is giving away free plays for a week

Most of you already know how I feel about Nintendo Badge Arcade. It's a harmless, fun little way to spend more time on my 3DS, and I don't mind booting it up every so often to try to net some free plays. For those of you who are turned off ...

I thought I was tired of roguelike platformers, but GoNNER suggests otherwise

As much as I don't think I need another super-tough platformer with roguelike elements in my life, maybe I do! I dig the unusual art and clickety-clackety sound design of GoNNER. Screenshots don't do the aesthetic much justice. This trailer...

No, it's not in-game, this is Lightning cosplay

March 24, 2016. That's it: the honest-to-goodness release date for Samorost 3. It's hitting PC and Mac first, followed by Android and iOS versions "later this year." Someone hold me! It has been a long wait for fans of the 2003 original and...
