18 years later, Baldur's Gate gets a new expansion

The original Baldur's Gate released way back in 1998, also known as the year a young Britney Spears hit the scene. 18 years later, we all feel old and broken. We have seen Britney's naughty bits, and we are ready to die -- or at least...

Don't Starve DLC

If you thought Don't Starve wasn't stressful enough, Shipwrecked is out today

The trailer released to celebrate the launch of Don't Starve: Shipwrecked has basically ensured I'm never playing the game ever again. It looks fantastic; but I just don't know if I'm emotionally ready to let Don't Starve back in...

 
Double Kick Heroes photo
Double Kick Heroes

Double Kick Heroes' multi-eyed demon train is metal as heck

Taiko Drum Master is good, clean fun, but you know what it isn't? Metal. I mean, not just the material the game is made out of (plastic) or what actual taiko drums are built from (wood). But also the chipper J-pop just doesn't appeal to the...

Monstrous Lovers

If you love boys loving each other, you may love Monstrous Lovers

Monstrous Lovers is a visual novel just picked up by publisher Sekai Project that is currently crowdfunding on Indie Go Go. Like most visual novels I end up writing about ("How to bang your dragon" was a good joke, all), Monstrous Lovers h...

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...

Hyper Light Drifter

Hyper Light Drifter will release on PC March 31

Backers shouldn't be surprised by this news; surveys went out to those who supported the initial Kickstarter campaign early last week. For everybody else, it may feel like Hyper Light Drifter was never going to see the light of day, but it ...

 
We Are Chicago preview
We Are Chicago takes place in Chicago's south side. It is a city whose residents are besieged by violent crime, with homicide rates that make Los Angeles and New York look like Pleasantville. Much of that is confined to the g...   read

Fullbright pushes Tacoma to spring 2017

Tacoma, a first-person, space-set adventure from the makers of Gone Home, won't be out this year as originally intended. The developers have set aside another six months or so to "reexamine and rework a number of the core assumptions we'd h...

Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear is releasing March 31

I forgot this was happening! Beamdog (the dudes and dudettes behind the enhanced editions of both Baldur's Gate games and Icewind Dale) is making an expansion for the original Baldur's Gate that bridges the gap between it and its ...

 
Strafe photo
Strafe

Strafe is going to make 2017 feel like 1996 all over again

Steven Hansen... Steven Hansen. Where do I know that name from? Eh, maybe it'll come to me later. Developer Pixel Titans has teamed up with Devolver Digital for its mid-'90s-feeling first-person shooter, Strafe, and that makes a whole lot o...

Enter the Gungeon

Enter the Gungeon shoots into existence on April 5

While at Indiecade last year, I played Dodge Roll's Enter The Gungeon for all of two minutes. You might think that I'm dismissing it and saying that it wasn't worth my full attention, to which I'd respond, "That's a really negative per...

Bloodstained model update

Bloodstained development update offers 3D model glamour shots

Look, it's Bloodstained. While Ritual of the Night isn't quite the same when Iga himself isn't demonstrating the gameplay to you, I suppose it's nice to see tangible evidence of the game as a work in progress rather than heady ideal. This ...

Control the sea in Europa Universalis IV expansion

Cossacks? Old news. I'm only snickering a little bit that their name sounds like "cocksacks." We've got ocean effects up in the hood now, man. This map's sparkling like never before. The latest Europa Universalis IV expansion opens up the ...

Knights and Bikes

Heck yes, Knights and Bikes is happening

I should've taken Darren's advice. He told us to watch the pitch video for Knights and Bikes, an action-RPG from some of the talented folks behind Tearaway and Ratchet and Clank, but instead I only read a bit, then glanced at a few (rather...

 
Attractio review

Nice beaver! ARK getting giant mountable beavers

Sure, taming dinosaurs is okay, but nothing beats getting your hands on a giant, furry beaver. ARK: Survival Evolved knows this, and it has introduced the beasts into the landscape. Though beavers aren't as ferocious as other animals (indee...

The new Humble Bundle is a good way to get Sunless Sea

Cities: Skylines DLC
There's a scene in Goodfellas where the feds are going to raid the house, so Ray Liotta's wife, Karen, flushes $60,000 worth of cocaine down the toilet. Ray Liotta is not happy with this coke-disposal and gets a little b...   read

Hell has never been prettier than in Pinstripe

Normally, thinking about Hell conjures up images of fire, torture, and torture by fire. Pinstripe goes more for the Inferno ninth circle look; this place is cold. But in addition to that, it is hauntingly beautiful. The wistful piano backin...

Layers of Fear has a knack for animating the inanimate. Many of its real-world paintings would appear unsettling even in a well-lit museum on a crowded discount-admission day. (Take, for instance, Goya's Saturn Devouring His ...   read

Frozen Synapse 2 announced, going open world

Frozen Synapse took turn-based strategy and upended it with simultaneous action, and to this day there isn't much else like it (except maybe the American football-esque offshoot Frozen Cortex). There isn't much to the announcement of Frozen...

A Boy and His Blob review
