With Pier Solar HD, what's old is new and what's new is old again. Unfortunately, we've got to wait quite a bit longer before we can actually give it a try now. The Sega Genesis-styled RPG care of Watermelon has been delayed ...

Towerfall on PS4 selling better than PC and Ouya

One-time Ouya-exclusive Towerfall got an enhanced PC and PS4 release this year and it was a good one, allowing the wonderful game to thrive more than it ever could have hoped on the Ouya. Towerfall creator Matt Thorson told E...

Reviews in Review is back, and due to the fact that this is episode 2, it officially has lasted longer than that time Fox tried to bring back The Osbournes after it got cancelled. 

Anyway, onto the reviews. This week I talked about Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, Batman: Arkham Origins: Cold, Cold Hearts, NES Remix 2, and Disney Magical World. Check 'em out.

What is even happening in this Beat Bros video?

I have watched the video above a couple of times now, but I still do not think I could describe Beat Bros accurately. It looks like developer Ultimate Walrus (of #Snake2 infamy) started making a rhythm-based Bomberman c...

Meltdown has a lightning gun and a dubstep trailer

Sometimes, players want to take in a thought-provoking narrative, with realistic character development and emotional events. Other times, players just want to shoot robots and blow things up. Meltdown is definitely meant for...

Witcher 3 delayed, Angry Birds gets Epic, and an Ouya game about Slavery photo
Witcher 3 delayed, Angry Birds gets Epic, and an Ouya game about Slavery
by Max Scoville

Everyone’s off playing Titan Souls or Darkfall or whathaveyou, so news this week is a lot of non-news. The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt has been delayed, which sucks, but apparently won’t derail Cyberpunk 2077. Sony shakes its head and frowns on the subject of release dates for The Last Guardian and Drive Club, and apparently Watchdogs isn’t late, Ubisoft just told us about it really early. Angry Birds just took a turn for the turn-based, Halfbrick’s latest game is about a bear destroying precious works of art, and there’s an Ouya exclusive on the way where you play as an escaped slave. On the VR front, Valve’s head VR dude has gone over to Oculus, hopefully to develop ways to terrify stars of other HBO series, and Sony’s rumored to be revealing their virtual reality hat at GDC next week.

Also, check out this ridiculous Lil Jon video.

DOOM 4 beta, Yokai Watch & Final Fantasy on PC photo
DOOM 4 beta, Yokai Watch & Final Fantasy on PC
by Max Scoville

Hey everybody, I’m back from Japan! And here’s your quasi-timely news update for the first two thirds of this week. Irrational Games closed, pre-ordering Wolfenstein: The New Order gets you a beta for the new and technically unannounced DOOM game. Square Enix has trademarked “Shinra Company,” there’s a possibility of new Final Fantasy games on PC in the future, and in the meantime, Final Fantasies VII, VIII, and XIV are currently on sale.

Level 5 is getting me all hot and bothered by teasing a western release of Yokai Watch, which is selling like adorable ghostcakes in Japan. PC and PS4 owners will get Zombie Studios’ Daylight in April, and next month sees the release of Towerfall Ascension, the expanded version of the former Ouya exclusive.

The best and worst games of the week - A Bravely January  photo
The best and worst games of the week - A Bravely January
by Wesley Ruscher

January has come and gone, but that doesn't mean there weren't some great games to play. Just look at all the amazing "indie" games that hit the PC this month.

We had the fruition of two KickStarter campaigns finally see the light of day -- The Banner Saga and the first act of Double Fine's Broken Age -- the quirky Octodad, and the totally rad OlliOlii on PS Vita.

There was definitely some great stuff to keep us busy this month, and February is looking just as smooth. I can't even tell you how much I can't wait to get my thumbs on Bravely Default on the 3DS. Well... I guess I just did.
