Meteor shower mod turns GTAV into a disaster film


How long can you survive?
Jan 19
// Steven Hansen
There was a weird trend among early LittleBigPlanet creators: bomb levels. Rather than doing much platforming, you just had to avoid getting blown up by intermittent bomb drops. They were kind of fun and way too plentiful. H...

Final Fantasy IX gets the Final Fantasy Explorers snub


FFVII, X over-represented
Jan 19
// Steven Hansen
The upcoming Monster Hunter-ish Final Fantasy Explorers is a more nondescript, job-system-based affair, but that doesn't mean your favorite characters are absent. While in Trance mode, your character can use previously equip...

Next Cities: Skylines expansion buries you under a blanket of snow


Cities: Skylines' Snowfall expansion
Jan 19
// Steven Hansen
Paradox and developer Colossal Order are smart to couch bigger Cities: Skylines expansions in visually transformative ways because, much like when the day/night cycle was added in After Dark, damn do these snow-kissed cities...

Sci-fi talkie mystery hopes for sequel
Jan 19
// Steven Hansen
Consortium is back with a Kickstarter campaign for Consortium: The Tower, a follow up to the 2014 original. In my review I said, "It's a little rough -- with the most recent patch, I didn't experience any bugs, though some...

Blade & Soul, I fell in love with you...
Jan 19
// Joe Parlock
Blade & Soul is a rare example of a game that managed to completely slip under my radar. Before I saw a few people excited about it yesterday, I had literally never heard of the game. Well, turns out it’s out today...

Knuckle Sandwich is another peculiar RPG


Keep 'em coming
Jan 18
// Jordan Devore
I could have sworn one of us had already touched on Knuckle Sandwich, but I guess not. This latest teaser is as fine of time as any to introduce the surreal role-playing game and its prominent noses. The story, at least initially, has to do with a cult and missing people. Could the two be connected? Playing as a dude who is bored to tears of his new job at the diner, it's on you to investigate.

Diaries of a Spaceport Janitor is nice and odd


A clean spaceport is a happy spaceport
Jan 18
// Jordan Devore
My eyes are feeling melty this tired Monday afternoon, but Diaries of a Spaceport Janitor perked me right up with its striking colors and eclectic style. What a curious game. This is an "anti-adventure," one that's centered o...

Look out for this pooping dog in The Division


Times are ruff
Jan 15
// Jordan Devore
I didn't realize The Division had dogs in it, let alone that they would poop (let alone that said poop would look like that). I'm now imagining the conversations that presumably took place at Ubisoft leading up to this idea being formed, pitched, conceptualized, implemented, and refined.

I think this Division trailer is telling us to not lick our money


You're not my supervisor!
Jan 11

There's no small irony in Ubisoft, a company that very much likes getting money, releasing a trailer advising of the perils of handling money. Don't handle money, don't lick money, don't eat money. Do you want diseases? 'Cau...
