Oooh Yarny, kumbayaaaa
It’s not long now until puzzle-platformer Unravel is launched. On February 9, the world will be too distracted by how adorable Yarny is to notice many of the world’s ills, and we will at last have achieved global ...
Never mix early access and paid-for DLC
It’s only been a few days since Godus Wars launched on Steam Early Access, and it’s already managed to cause an uproar. As 22Cans’ early access follow-up to the infamously abandoned Godus, Wars has the diffi...
Releasing February 23
Tribute Games is bringing Ninja Senki DX to PC, PS4, and PS Vita on February 23.
This is an expanded version of a rather good freeware action game from 2010, which, from our prior coverage, it sounds like a number of us have ...
Plus move list because I can be helpful
I know what you're thinking with Street Fighter V (PS4, PC) less than two weeks from release: everything is mined. There was the big reveal that Arcade mode will have standard text and art stories to be followed by a post-lau...
Feels a bit flimsy, but works great
I’ve never had much luck with gaming mice; either there’s too many moving parts and I break it, or the shape doesn’t fit my hands and feels uncomfortable to use. So when I got Cougar’s 450M ambidextrou...
Domo arigato Mr. Martian Roboto
The 1950s were considered the golden age of campy sci-fi films, with aliens often invading Earth alongside giant animals, and, of course, robots.
Fortified tries to recreate the feeling of those films in a third-pe...
Early Access in two weeks

Specifically, the developers co...
Gotta bump fast
I've said it before, but I really enjoy this era of gaming. Sure, there were a lot of classics in the retro era, but many were few and far between from the same usual suspects. Now we have talented developers ready and willin...
Rocky Horror Far Cry Show
Oh, fantasy free me
Far Cry Primal has a new trailer and it's really well-produced. It's a reverse look at some of the major eras of combat in human history, all culminating in a showdown with a CGI sabretooth tiger.
But, it also reminded me of "Time Warp," and now I've been listening to that all morning long. It's just a jump to the left, then a step to the right...
This could be a screensaver
Certainly, the drawings shown here are works of art on their own, but Hidden Folks really comes alive in motion. It's a far cry from the last Where's Waldo game I remember playing, which featured a series of low-res pixel art...
Haha, the current site is classic
I still remember buying Minecraft in 2009, and the original site really hasn't changed all that much. But Mojang (and thus, Microsoft) has really been making strides since the acquisition, finally releasing the game on W...
The best part of Fallout games are often the mods. And with the settlement system and the texture packs involved, there have been some really great ones for Fallout 4. This one made me laugh repeatedly though, as the "Al...
Then buying won't be a leap of Faith
Before Mirror's Edge Catalyst releases on May 24, you have an opportunity to take it for a test drive and kick the wheels a little bit. Well, "test run" might be a more appropriate term considering this game is all about...
Presentation on February 10
Street Fighter V is nearly here after months of hype and beta testing, but Capcom isn't done promoting it just yet. The publisher has announced that they will hold a special presentation event on February 10, which basically ...
New demon-filled trailer and $120 deals
Hello everybody, I am the harbinger of Doom, id Software's Bethesda-published reboot of the brutal first-person shooter shown off last year. Turns out Doom'll turnout worldwide on May 13. That's for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
Would you survive?
Developer Xaviant has announced Battle Royale-esque The Culling, a new game wherein 16 players battle to the death in a Hunger Games-like island arena.
Just like Hunger Games, you must scavenge for weapons, food, and re...
Don't forget to apply for your refund
Warner Bros has confirmed that Batman: Arkham Knight has been cancelled for Mac/Linux platforms.
In a brief statement on Steam, the publisher said:

Simple, flashy, over the top
Almost a decade ago, in my mid-teens, I was hugely into Naruto. As a socially awkward nerd who had just discovered that Dragon Ball Z and Sailor Moon were part of a larger media genre, I spent years avidly following the adven...
That didn't take too long
Blizzard is bringing back the Overwatch closed beta on February 9 in the Americas and Europe, and February 16 in Asia. If you had access to it before the hiatus, you'll still be good to go.
The newly refreshed beta will sport...
And rollin' all over the place
April isn't that far off on the horizon, but it might as well be an eternity when you're eagerly awaiting a new game. For many, that game is Dark Souls III, a franchise that has the pedigree to make waiting unbearable.
If a ...
Project Legion comes to life, sort of
At EVE Fanfest 2014, CCP announced a prototype called Project Legion, a new PC shooter in the EVE Online universe. We were immediately left to wonder what this meant for Dust 514 which already fills that shooter rol...
Send in the plows
I've seen snow only once or twice this year, and even then, it didn't stick around for long. Meanwhile, Brett is regaling us with tales about how he's just now venturing out of his snowed-in house for the first time since Sun...
First mission arrives at launch
Sony has locked up some more exclusive content for yet another shooter -- Hitman. In fact, when the game's beta launches on February 12, PS4 owners will be able to play it a week before PC and Xbox One players. It has also co...
Europe came close to Japan!
It's pretty well known that there are a lot of European One Piece fans out there (which is why they got this EU-specific special edition), and now hard data from Bandai Namco supports that fact. According to the publishe...
While they set off fireworks
Not only did we find out today that the soon-to-be-released Firewatch is going to cost $19.99, but now we have our first full playthrough of day one in the game thanks to PlayStation Access.
Personally, I'm even m...
Xbox, mobile ports under consideration
Expanding on his initial hints about how The Witness is selling, designer Jonathan Blow has shared more detailed numbers. On PC and PS4, the mind-melting puzzle game "has totalled over $5 million USD gross revenue in the...
Pretty good, pretty good
Now that The Division's first beta is over, how do the three versions across different platforms compare? Here's a video so that you can parse the evidence first-hand.
IGN put this graphics comparison video together to show ...
As classics such as The Thing and Alien vs. Predator have taught us, people get hurt when the temperature goes down. Rainbow Six Siege is already about hurting people (killing them, in fact!), so the game's fi...
You can always count on Durante
Tales of Symphonia released on Steam this week, and buyer beware -- you're in for a scare.
Bandai Namco's PC version is based on the PS3 port of the PS2 port of the cherished 2003 GameCube title, and even by modest standards,...
Yes, that's the actual title
