Bears Vs Cyclopes in the Witcher 3


Whoever wins, we lose
May 24
Despite the positive reviews (such as the one by our very own Chris Carter) I've been hesitant to jump into The Witcher 3. It sounds great, but with a potential run time clocking in at 100 hours and up, I don't want to buy a... read

Mad Max: Mario Kart Fury gets murderously Miyamoto


The mashup you've been waiting for
May 24
Get angry that you didn't think of it first. Uploaded two days ago, Kris Sundberg's mashup parody of Mario Kart and Mad Max: Fury Road has already racked up 1.4 million views and counting, possibly from all the repeat v... read

You've probably seen Crypt of the NecroDancer, the rhythm based roguelike dungeon crawler that recently released on Steam to positive reviews, but not like this. Crypt of the MegaDancer is a full conversion that gives the en... read

Day one DLC is a tricky thing. If it's too good, people will howl that it should have been in the stand alone game at launch. If it sucks, then you can bet your sweet bippy that dogs will hunt. All of that goes triple for an... read feature

Shadowrun returns again with Shadowrun: Hong Kong


Coming this summer
May 22
One of the concerns I've had that could affect a possible Kickstarter bubble burst is a sort of "what next?" Fans fund an IGA-led Castlevania-like en masse, then what? Do they fund it again once the novelty wears off? In 201... read

Also, have some expansion footage

One of the best parts of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is the music. Most people don't consider it a "real" Final Fantasy because of the MMO tag, but let me tell you -- it's probably my favorite main entry sinc... read

Check out the femme fatales of Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition


So...many...characters
May 22
Trish, playable in the new Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition release next month, is shaping up to be one of the coolest DMC characters to date. Thankfully, Lady doesn't seem like a slouch either, as her gun-based gameplay looks pretty amazing. I was always a fan of the Kalina Ann weapon. Despite the fact that it's digital-only in the west, I'm still excited to give this a test run. read

Virtual reality zombie shooter

I sometimes feel like I'm less on board with VR than most. It's a fun novelty to show a family member for 20 minutes, not something I'd like to be cocooned in for hours . Maybe that's why there's expectation of it doing gang... read

Lord of Magna is nearly here, so have a website and a tutorial video


Have it all!
May 21
Lord of Magna looks like a fun little strategy romp on 3DS. I haven't played it yet, but I'm hoping to get my hands on it soon. In the meantime, XSEED has opened up a new website for the game, and dropped a new tutorial video that explains the combat a bit. In short, it looks a lot like Valkyria Chronicles, where it's more action-based, sans grid. I'm down with that. read
