One Piece Unlimited World Red coming to North America

I hope you didn't miss the first footage of One Piece Unlimited World Red earlier this year. This adventure RPG looks fantastic on any platform, but it's somehow even more impressive on the 3DS. I continue to be impressed by...

Luna's Wandering Stars rides physics through space puzzles

Using gravity to manipulate orbit and slingshot to a desired destination is always satisfying, in an "I could have been a NASA scientist" kind of way. With titles like Kerbal Space Program and Gravity Ghost, we've seen the m...

More beautiful game-inspired woodblock prints you can buy

We've shown off Jed Henry's Japanese woodblock renditions of game characters before. I'm still in love with that original Samus one. But Henry's catalog is growing, to my wallet's growing concern. Shadow of the Colossus, Fina...

Dark Souls II set for April 25, 2014 on PC

There was concern that the PC release of Dark Souls II would arrive long after the game hits Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on March 11, 2014. While the PC date isn't as bad as some had feared, it's by no means right around the c...

Meet Yoshi's New Island, same as the old island
by Steven Hansen

Do you know what's fun? Making Yoshi noises. Come on. Do it. The tongue grab. The flutter jump. The ground pound. Such an animated dinosaur. Hamza and Dale are really good at making Yoshi noises.

Yoshi's New Island is also fun.

Wolfenstein: The New Order is as middling as I feared
by Abel Girmay

Wolfenstein: The New Order is a videogame that has guns in it, and you use these guns to kill people. That's about as remarkable a statement as I could rack my brain for after spending three hours with game.

As much as some Wolfenstein fans may want to greet The New Order with fanfare and anticipation, I have to say folks, there just doesn't seem anything noteworthy to this newest title. With the exception of a few moments, Wolfenstein: The New Order feels like a phoned-in, by the numbers first-person shooter.
