I am a poet
I'm fighting the urge to do the lazy blogger "if X and Y had a baby" thing, but I don't know if I can help myself. Crashlands looks like what would happen if The Behemoth (BattleBlock Theater) were to develop Klei Entertainm...
Pop shove-it into your eyeholes
Yep, that looks like a Tony Hawk game all right. There are highly technical tricks on absurdly dangerous terrain. Grinding that increases speed instead of decreasing it. Just the right amount of jank in aerial maneuvers, as ...
Papers, Please released a couple years ago, but it struck a chord with many who played it. One of the most discussed elements was the decision-making process between doing what is right and doing what is necessary. First-per...
Two new characters announced
Koei Tecmo has decided to dump a bunch of Heroic Legend of Arslan Warriors screens out into the wild for us to gander at, and man are they great. The character Gieve and Farangis have been added to the game, and a few de...
They're both in Toy Soldiers: War Chest
After showing He-Man and G.I. Joe in Toy Soldiers: War Chest, Ubisoft noted that it would announce two more licensed armies for Signal Studio's latest tower defense/action game.
We dreamed big, as you do. That was a mistake.
And maybe E. Honda
I woke up to murmurs of Alex, Urien, R. Mika, and Karin Kanzuki possibly returning for Street Fighter V but Capcom had other plans for its San Diego Comic-Con character reveal today.
Ken. It's Ken.
Whatever you do, don't stare directly into his hair.

Expansion releasing July 23 on Steam

Snoopy and Woodstock cooperate
Those trailers for The Peanuts Movie are pretty dang cute. It's neat to see the computer models and animation done in the style of the old cartoons. The movie will show up in theaters on November 6.
In a move hearkening back...
There's free movement, at least
Ubisoft has another Rayman in the works for smartphones and tablets. It's pretty! Almost as pretty as Rayman Legends which, despite being phenomenal, not enough folks played.
This time, players will be able to move freely th...
Reminder: This thing is $40
Were we expecting the remaster of Darksiders II for current systems to look significantly better than the 2012 original (RIP THQ)? I was not. Crisper and smoother, sure, but that's about it. Here are some comparison screenshots that, at least to these less-than-stellar eyes, took some studying.
The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book
Gust has turned heads with a new PlayStation (3, 4, and Vita) action RPG Yoru no Nai Kuni (something along the line of Land of No Night). It's much darker (but still pretty) than the Atelier games the company might be best k...
And if the environment were invisible
Today is a good day to celebrate rainbows, eh? I mean, every day is a good day to celebrate rainbows, and even if that weren't the case, I'd still highlight Super 91 Studios' Ink. It started as an entry to Ludum Dare 32, who...
My dad could beat up your dad
True story: my dad used to be quite the brawler. At a stocky 5'5" (165 cm), he was often underestimated. What he lacks in height and reach he makes up for in tenacity. What I'm trying to say is that I'm pretty sure my dad co...
Catch a screeeeeeeeeen!
Tales from the Borderlands: Catch a Ride is out today, and it continues the excellence the series has been known for thus far. As I normally do while playing through Telltale titles, I had my finger firmly planted on the F12 ...
New trailer may be uploaded soon?
I wouldn't blame you for avoiding these if you want to wait to experience them in the majesty that is the second Persona 5 trailer, from where these screens were ripped. Folks in Japan got their hands on Persona 4: Dancing All Night early along with the special bonus disc that contains a Persona 5 trailer, so be on the lookout for that soon.
Also, blue-haired guy a new character?
Xbox green, amiibo, nipples and more

Adorable yarn-based puzzle platforming
Unravel is an upcoming puzzle-platform game about a little yarn guy on a journey through nature, and it is such a delight. It's one of those titles you'll want to complete in a single sitting, totally absorbed the whole way t...
Yarn but not Yoshi
At EA's press conference earlier today, the big publisher unveiled something that felt a little out of character, but in all the best ways. Unravel is a puzzle platformer that makes use of the craft item look Nintendo has be...
Rise from your grave!
The leaks killed the surprise, but I'm still into it -- Dark Souls III is coming early next year to PC, PS, and Xbox One. "Hidetaka Miyazaki and his team" are on the project, according to Bandai Namco.
A pre-rendered video p...
The power of Microsoft money
We have seen snippets of Minecraft on HoloLens in the past, but at Microsoft's E3 press conference today, a couple of presenters showed off something that had us putting up the respect knuckles. With a special camera showing ...
Looking good, Boston
Bethesda spent a lot of time on Fallout at its E3 showcase. Though the video presentation is probably the way to go for those hungry for Fallout 4 information, fans short on time might prefer a quick browsing of screens. Thou...
Available on App Store tonight
[Update: Bethesda's Pete Hines mentioned on his Twitter that "we will have info later about [an] Android version."]
At Bethesda's E3 press conference, the big draw was Fallout 4, but nestled in the middle of the Fallout prese...

Catch a Ride
In life, sometimes it's best to celebrate the little victories. For instance, the forces of the universe have prevented me from attending E3 this year, but as a consolation, Telltale is releasing Tales from the Borderlands Ep...
2D and 3D gameplay
Sure, big name Kickstarters like Bloodstained and Yooka-Laylee are in the spotlight right now with their campaigns winding down having made millions of dollars. But don't forget that there are others out there looking for th...
