Hahah okay: ThumbderDome Wrestling is about thumb wrestling

I can't quite put my finger on it, but thumbthing about this game really catches my attention. I have to give it a hand; it scores in the double digits as far as silliness goes. ThumbderDome Wrestling is about thumb wrestlin...

Scrap Mechanic lets players build vehicular monstrosities from gathered materials

I said it when the TerraTech Kickstarter was running and I'll say it again: Building vehicles from individual parts and then driving/flying/careening them around is awesome. Scrap Mechanic looks like it really takes that to ...

Uncanny Valley: Playing videogames can get you killed

Uncanny Valley, that promising survival horror game with the medical posters on the wall, has released a fun little Halloween video. There is a game within the game, an arcade cabinet called Anarchy Man, which you can totally play while you're playing the game. Of course, this may not be the best idea in a horror game...

Particulars explores the subatomic world next month

I always appreciate seeing science represented in games, outside of the typical "heroes need to clean up the mess these mad scientists made" trope. Videogames can be so powerful as tools for learning, and that potential is s...

Senran Kagura Bon Appétit hits Vita on November 11
by Kyle MacGregor

Senran Kagura Bon Appétit launches in North America on November 11, Marvelous announced today. The PlayStation Vita exclusive will then arrive in Europe the following day.

The rhythm game is a spin-off of "the popular bouncy ninja series," which sees the girls set aside their weapons for a change to engage in a cooking competition. Bon Appétit features ten "infectious" songs as standard, with more coming later as downloadable content.

Marvelous says all character and costume DLC from Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus is compatible with Bon Appétit. Furthermore players who purchase the "Gessen x Hebijo DLC pack" will have access to the game's soundtrack via a bonus music app.

Both the base game and expansion will retail for $15 apiece.

Senran Kagura Bon Appetit! Hits Vita Exclusively on 11/11 [PlayStation Blog, PS Blog EU]

Tales of Cosmos is a point-and-click starring a space corgi

Sure, there is also a chimpanzee named Professor Gagayev, but we all know that Perseus the Dog is the star here. He's got valor! He reminds me of Missile from Ghost Trick, except I'm pretty sure Perseus is a corgi rather tha...

This Assassin's Creed Rogue story trailer is actually important

Every major videogame these days is accompanied by a seemingly endless barrage of trailers prior to release. That's just how things work now. A lot of it is little more than filler to keep the audience constantly reminded th...

The game trailers with the most feels photo
The game trailers with the most feels
by Dale North

I'm easy. And I think you are, too. Those debut game trailers get me every time. It usually goes like this:

Stirring, slow beds of strings and woodwinds underlay a dramatic shot; an extreme closeup of some unknown character. Or, maybe a well-known one. Just the eyeball, or just the face. Pan out. Wide, lush landscapes that take the breath away. Maybe sunny and bright. Maybe foggy and mysterious. The music increases in tempo and loudness. Quick cuts! Sword slashes. All-white flashes. Strings crescendo as they build via agiato. The heart rate quickens. Fast. Faster! Then, boom. Quiet. Black screen. Some sounds, or maybe some dialogue. Slow, slow text. Subwoofers do something. Fade...

I got chills from the music in this Alien: Isolation launch trailer

Man, there sure have been a lot of Alien: Isolation videos lately. I guess that's the rote cycle of triple-A games marketing. Here's one more. But, this launch trailer may be better than all the other ones that have rel...
