This isn’t the first rodeo for SteamWorld Dig -- the cute mining adventure game first arrived last year on the 3DS eshop, followed by a Steam release. Now it’s making a comeback to the Wii U this week on August 28...

Controlling a game with your voice has long been a dream of some developers but most of the time, technology isn't able to cope with the complexity of speech. Bot Colony is an episodic, sci-fi adventure game from C...
You better believe I've had my eyeballs on the Mighty No. 9 Kickstarter like a vulture. I wanted to spread the news as soon as the console port goal was finally cleared. That's right! Mere minutes ago, the donation amount cro...
