Kevin Sorbo returns as Hercules in Smite


Here's how to get the voice pack
Jul 24
// Jordan Devore
Hercules: The Legendary Journeys star Kevin Sorbo has lent his voice to Hi-Rez Studios' mythology-themed MOBA Smite. How this collaboration didn't happen sooner, I'm not sure. Before crying "disappointed!" over microtransacti...

Prune looks like a must-play for iOS users


No in-app purchases
Jul 24
// Jordan Devore
Every now and then, Twitter throws a wonderful iOS recommendation my way and I'm immediately captivated. Today, it's Joel McDonald's Prune, "a game about the beauty and joy of cultivation." By smartly slicing off a tree's gro...

It's Friday, but GTA's Franklin has a case of the Mondays


None of this is any good

Chin up, Franklin. We've all been there, and you're right: it is some bitch ass bullshit. But it gets better; it has to get better.

Goaltenders have exactly one job: tend to the goal. Don't let the puck hit the twine. Accomplish that through whatever means necessary. Force them to the glove side where you make web gems like Willie Mays. Flash the five-ho...

3D Realms' Bombshell looks...okay


I'll wait until it's out to judge
Jul 24
// Chris Carter
3D Realms is heralding Bombshell as a return to old school shooting, and now we're finally getting to see what the insides look like over time. They've posted this new gameplay video from Quakecon, which shows our heroi...

Rare Replay is coming out on August 4. That's in less than two weeks! The collection of games from Rare's past 30 years is showing up on Xbox One with some extra nuggets thrown in as well. The trailer above talks about this ...

Codemasters: 'You might be pleasantly surprised' by the new Overlord


It's going to be a hard sell
Jul 23
// Jordan Devore
I don't know where I was on April 23, but I missed the first footage of Overlord: Fellowship of Evil. Until today, I was under the impression the new game was going to be Overlord III. Damn. Codemasters has a Q&A up on it...

Gears of War has more weapon skins to sell us


You can pre-load the game on Xbox One
Jul 23
// Jordan Devore
I don't think I ever bought a weapon skin for Gears of War 3, but plenty of folks did. Good job, old me -- you were prone to buying stuff like that in those days but you held strong. Anyway, the skins are back for Gears of Wa...

I'm going to play the hell out of Luigi's Mansion arcade


Publicly debuting in Japan
Jul 23
// Steven Hansen
I love Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon. It is filthy with ghosts and adorable little touches (physics fun, Luigi's whistling to the score). It even has some great multiplayer (and inspired the second best Nintendo Land minigame)....

The Talos Principle: Road to Gehenna is out now


Watch the launch trailer
Jul 23
// Darren Nakamura
The more time passes since playing The Talos Principle, the more I think it's going to end up on my personal games of the year list. Releasing late last year, it just missed the cut to be considered for 2014, so it will be g...

Well, Dragon Quest VIII almost looks as good as it did 11 years ago


3DS port
Jul 23
// Steven Hansen
I'm always down for photo modes. Still, adding a photo quests feature that tasks you with snapping pictures for rewards, in a port of a game that looked a little bit better in 2004? (For reference, it is now 2015) Well, ok. ...

The main character of Net High still totally looks like Gurren Lagann's Kamina


Watch the intro
Jul 23

Net High is coming on November 26 in Japan exclusively for the Vita, and you can take a look at the intro above to get an idea of what to expect. It's a really kooky game overall, as it involves gathering the most Twitt...

Batman: Arkham Knight has a Halloween-themed Easter egg


'Spoilers,' I guess
Jul 23
// Steven Hansen
I came home to my pal Kenny playing Batman: Arkham Knight. Unfortunately for him (and me), he spent most of this time doing the Cloudburst, stealth-tank fight, and swearing. I'm actually second-hand mad at the game all over ...

Submerged is kind of like Wind Waker if you only count the boat stuff


Forget all that fighting
Jul 22
// Brett Makedonski
It may not be the iconic King of Red Lions, but like Wind Waker, Submerged also has a boat that you will become very accustomed to. Sea travel is about the only way to get around, after all. What else are you suppo...

A modder that goes by Fiachra has been combining the GameCube's Super Mario Sunshine with the DS' Super Mario 64 DS into one potentially glorious mashup. Super Mario Sunshine 64 has been in development since 2...

Metal Gear Online gear customization doesn't affect stats


Though it affects visibility
Jul 22

I've already played two days worth of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. It's good stuff. Anyone attending gamescom in a couple weeks will be able to play it, too, in the first public hands-on. All well and good. But Metal...

Devil's Third multiplayer actually looks kind of fun


I want to see this one for myself
Jul 22

While the first few minutes of this new official Devil's Third trailer looks fairly boring, the multiplayer component, which starts at 2:30, actually seems kind of cool. Like Itagaki has said in the past it's a military...

Diablo's King Leoric joins Heroes of the Storm today


Rest in peace, already!
Jul 21
// Jordan Devore
This video for King Leoric isn't as informative as the prior one, but I had to share it for that last line. The new Heroes of the Storm combatant seems as if he'll be a royal pain in the ass on maps like Cursed Hollow and Sky Temple, to say nothing of his undying ability that lets him roam around as a wraith. I'm saving my stockpile of gold for the Monk, though. He was my boy in Diablo III.

Zeratul is frequently banned at high-level play in Heroes of the Storm tournaments, and now you can see why, with this video shared by JJ TheMighty. The top Heroic ability (ultimate) pick is Void Prison, because of...
