There's little more than a week until Dying Light: The Following releases and we can all start drop-kicking the undead off of buildings again. Adding to an already steady flow of pre-release footage, Techland is showing ...

It seems like it's been forever since we last checked in on Stardew Valley, a pixel art farming life simulator/role-playing game that evokes memories of Harvest Moon in those fortunate enough to have played it in its prime (o...

American Truck Simulator is out on Steam next week, and we have Patrick on point for the review. That's all well and good. But lately, he's been coming into our staff chat with what I have decided must be hip trucker lingo, a...

Jan 28

Sunless Sea is one of those games I wanted to check out last year but never got around to. I guess I should have, because it showed up on a couple of our personal game of the year lists. This weekend, I have even less of an e...

Get your body Lady for Idolmaster: Platinum Stars' trailer


Prepare for EXTREME LIVE
Jan 28
// Josh Tolentino
It wasn't enough for Bandai Namco to merely announce that Idolm@ster: Platinum Stars was on its way to PS4 this year, oh no. No, they had to show the thing off in motion today, and I have to say it's looking quite good....

While Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon has been out for the 3DS in Japan and the States for months now, it isn’t being released here in Blighty until February 19. I think it’s some weird punishment for us get...

Jan 27
// Jordan Devore
Battlefleet: Gothic Armada is a real-time strategy game in which sprawling Warhammer 40,000 ships blow each other to smithereens. As previewed in today's narrative trailer, there's a story, too! I'm typically not a big fan of...

On PS4
Jan 27

Another month, another set of free games. Honestly, I can't keep up. That's just going to get better/worse (depending on how you look at it) because both of the headliners for PlayStation Plus in February are games I've been ...

Check out the first hour of Far Cry Primal

Jan 26 // Laura Kate Dale
[embed]336360:61967:0[/embed] As you can see in the above video, there are a few places we had to skip around to keep publishers and PR happy. You don't miss seeing anything important, mainly some running around the map and the lighting of a campfire on the way to walk into a cave.  So, sit back and get an hour's worth of Primal in your face.

Bless these early, monstrous Street Fighter V mods


Put your Birdie face on
Jan 25
// Steven Hansen
Street Fighter V is still a few weeks away. Capcom recently unveiled its plans for the story mode (free post launch DLC) and I had a lengthy interview with producer Yoshinori Ono where we talked about baseball and how Third Strike is the best Street Fighter. But this is all about fans being fans and doing weird mod shit, even with the PC beta. Laura x Birdie looks like an Attack on Titan.

Street Fighter IV had a good grip of 2D animated cutscenes providing some closure to individual characters' Arcade mode arcs, but as a whole the series has been spinning its wheels in that department, especially compared to ...

The Order: 1886 was well known for two things: being a PlayStation 4 exclusive in a time before Bloodborne was available and being pretty. Note the things not on that list: gameplay and story. Still, if you want to experience...

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...
