Addressing 'the hipster issue' with YIIK co-creator Andrew Allanson

When Andrew and Brian Allanson were kids, they made their own Pokémon toys out of stuff they had lying around the house. They've always loved working together to build something out of nothing, regardless if anyone was watching or n...

Hot Lava

How has floor-is-lava 'em up Hot Lava not been made already?

I am utterly shocked Hot Lava hasn’t happened already. You know when you were a kid, and you’d jump all over the furniture, shouting “the floor is lava!” and pissing off your parents? It’s that but as a video g...

Start a virtual LAN party in BigScreen, a must-have for VR owners

I can't stop saying the future is here when talking about virtual reality because seemingly every other day some new game or application comes out that just blows me away; today is one of those days. BigScreen, released for free today via ...

Hyper Light Drifter just got a surprise co-op beta

Hyper Light Drifter is finally out, but Heart Machine's work isn't finished just yet. In addition to working on PS4, Vita, and Xbox One versions, they're also incorporating another mode into the PC edition -- co-op. Apparently the feat...

Unnerving adventure Oxenfree coming to PS4

It's a pleasant surprise to hear that Night School is bringing its supernatural adventure game Oxenfree to PlayStation 4 on May 31, 2016. The port will have extras like New Game+ mode (which will also appear in the existing PC and Xbox One...

 
Purrview from CATS East
When I wrote about a non-hipster walking simulator for Cliffy B just before PAX, I had no idea there was already a game that was basically that, only it's 2D and features colorful animals.  Night in the Woods i...   read

If you miss Kirby's Dream Course, take a look at Bulby

Kirby's Dream Course holds a special place in gaming history. Despite releasing more than 20 years ago and featuring a unique gameplay hook, it didn't see many copycats. Sure, there have been other golf games, but nothing has been quite lik...

Darkest Dungeon on PS4 and Vita delayed until the summer

Darkest Dungeon, a kinda-roguelike where you have to keep track of your party’s mental states to survive, has been delayed on PS4 and Vita. While it’s been out on PC and Mac since January, the PS4 and Vita builds were originally...

A roguelike platformer where you're trying to find trinkets to cheer up your only friend -- that just happens to be a giant, land-bound whale named Sally -- was my favorite game at PAX East this year. Are you surprised? ...   read

Stories review
I spent a few years of my childhood voraciously consuming "Choose Your Own Adventure" books. There were many types, but the "Goosebumps" series was my favorite to thumb through. Instead of throwing the pigskin around with rou...   read

A Tofu Tail
This weekend on the PAX East show floor sat the unassuming A Tofu Tail, a mobile puzzle game that draws from Japanese folklore. The premise is simple -- you play as Mr. Tofu, once a human in a past life, but no...   read

Headlander feels like a licensed game for a cartoon that doesn't exist

Headlander looks fantastic. It feels like a space-themed spin-off of a primetime '70s sitcom; think Partridge Family 2200 A.D by way of Highlander. To some of you, that comparison may come across as a slight, so what you also need to unders...

 
China

Review: Koi

"Made in China" is a phrase typically etched into the underside of cheap consumer goods. Hidden from view, it's more of an admission than a selling point. It's a reminder of the grim realities of our globalized economy, a sta...   read

Severed

Review: Severed

When Drinkbox Studios' Guacamelee! came out three years ago (blarg), Jonathan Holmes called it a "sugar skull-covered playground to delight in and devour with mucho gusto," and I'd agree with that assessment. Vibran...   read

I was wrong
I have to be honest, I've been a skeptic of Ghost Song since it was announced and then crowdfunded. People around the internet have reacted as if it weas God's gift to gamers and the second coming of Samus, and I ju...   read

Mages of Mystralia balances skills through hex trees

The first time I tried to use a fireball spell in Mages of Mystralia, I had no idea why the ball of flame I created stayed where I created it. Archers were firing at me from across a chasm, and I could not fire back at them. I pulled up a m...

Severed continues to look rad as hell in its final release trailer

Never thought I'd be excited about a Vita release in 2016, but Severed, the latest title from the developers of Guacamelee! is just about the coolest thing I've seen in months. Described as a mix of Mega Man, Infinity Blade, and Punch-...

Banner Saga 2 is as pretty as it is out right now

We've not got up a review for The Banner Saga 2 yet, but it did wriggle out onto Steam last week (PC and Mac). For now, do some alchemy to combine the above launch trailer and our very positive review of the original Banner Saga back in 20...

 
Zenge review

Review: Zenge

Most modern puzzle games go heavy on the logic/deduction/critical thinking. Some of them are so difficult the average person can't complete them without looking up a guide. On the other end of the spectrum, zen games take a m...   read

Ubisoft ends lawsuit with Assassin's Creed creator, hands over 1666 Amsterdam

Damn, it feels good to be a Viking in Expeditions: Viking

Expeditions: Conquistador took me by surprise. I had no expectations going in, and what I found was a well-crafted and hard-as-nails strategy game. Now, we’re being transported further back in time to the era of the Vikings, a pe...

Is it fun to beat protesters and molotov the police in Riot - Civil Unrest?

I've had my eye on Riot - Civil Unreset since it was announced in 2013 via a crowdfunding campaign. I'm a big fan of politics - social and otherwise - and can't think of a single other game that lets players take a somewhat realistic l...
