AC DLC review photo
What's old is new again... kind of
If our time spent wandering the Parisian streets in Assassin's Creed Unity has taught us anything, it's that Arno Dorian is a self-serving man. Almost all of his actions, whether aligned with the cause of the Brotherhood or n... read feature

Metal Gear modders put Ground Zeroes in first-person


Not as cool as people birds, but still cool
Jan 12
Almost disappointed I have Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes on PS4, where it was recently like $6, rather than on PC, where people have been modding all sorts of zany crap into it. The above first-person mod is low on ... read

Oh my god, these gifs
Jan 08
At this rate, I'll wind up double dipping with the PC version of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. We covered the mod that lets you play as designer Hideo Kojima, and the one that replaces birds with humans, but here are a few more I came across this morning that demanded to be shared. First up, Metal Gear Chico. read

Ground zero

As much as wish it weren't true, it is: I've never completed a Metal Gear Solid until now. This is a series plenty of you adore playing, thinking, and talking about and that affection has rubbed off on me over the years. It's... read

New Fossil Echo trailer shows off its Oddworld influence


Shadow of the Colossus influence still apparent

When we first saw Fossil Echo earlier this year, all we really had to go on was its sharp cartoon art style and a list of influences: Shadow of the Colossus, Studio Ghibli films, and Oddworld. Some of those influences were a... read

Sneaky Sneaky review photo
Slow and stealthy
Stealth is a tricky game mechanic to pull off well. If it is too slow it can be dull, but if it is too fast it is more action than stealth. If it is too predictable it becomes mundane, but if it is too random it requires more... read feature

Just like with Gunpoint, it's a joy to watch designer Tom Francis play Heat Signature, wonky wrench physics and all, while it's still in development. It's as if he's making the game solely for himself and, hey, if the rest o... read
