PS4's 3.50 update is coming, provides 'appear offline' and remote play

Do not be alarmed! Brave Fencer Musashi was an amazing game (with an okay lesser known sequel), but it doesn't have anything to do with this PS4 update, as it's merely codenamed "Musashi," for the actual historical figure no doubt. I c...

See Dark Souls' giant-ass Great Sword of Artorias in real life

We are somehow still one week away from Dark Souls 3/my birthday, which is good; you have time to buy me something still. Please collaborate amongst yourselves to avoid double-gifting. It is weird, though, with the game effectively ou...

Donald Trump tweeted a weird Mass Effect campaign video, because Donald Trump will tweet anything

This Remedy studio tour cracked me up

We're a few days out from Quantum Break, and whether you're looking forward to the time-bending shooter or not, this tour of Remedy Entertainment is worth watching. It's pretty darn funny! I had my suspicions that Shawn Ashmore smells nic...

Shadow of the Beast is reminiscent of the PS1 era

The PlayStation 4 exclusive remake of Shadow of the Beast finally has a release date: May 17, 2016. It looks to be a side-scrolling brawler which somehow manages to be oddly reminiscent of such classic PlayStation games as W...

Double Kick Heroes' multi-eyed demon train is metal as heck

Taiko Drum Master is good, clean fun, but you know what it isn't? Metal. I mean, not just the material the game is made out of (plastic) or what actual taiko drums are built from (wood). But also the chipper J-pop just doesn't appeal to the...

Quantum Break hits next week, April 5, on PC (Windows 10 only) and Xbox One. Remedy's time travel shooter didn't sit right with me for years dating back to when I saw the game at E3 2013, but a recent preview event allayed those concerns, ...

Modular guns are the coolest thing from Homefront: The Revolution so far

Toukiden's follow-up was announced last year at the Tokyo Game Show and since we've seen nothing but screenshots. Nice screenshots, mind. But writing about new screenshots is so 2008 or, perhaps, 2000-and-late. The point is that it's 2016 ...
