This Space Jam/Splatoon audio mashup almost makes me not hate Space Jam


Space Jam is the devil
May 26
// Jonathan Holmes
You know how a lot of Star Wars fans dislike Jar Jar Binks? As a life long Loony Tunes fan, that's exactly how I felt about Space Jam when I first saw it, back when it was originally released in theaters. I was pretty s...

With art like that, I don't even care what Child of Cooper is about


Last night I had the strangest dream
May 26
// Jordan Devore
I don't know what to make of Child of Cooper, an upcoming PC game out of Shelter developer Might and Delight, and that's exciting. It's pitched as a "visual narrative that challenges aspects of normative video game storytel...

May 26
// Jordan Devore
The new DiRT game is coming together piece by piece, and today's morsel has me reminiscing about a certain scenic climb in Colorado. Today's update for DiRT Rally is a big one, and centers on Pikes Peak (both its "full fat m...

Battlefield Hardline's new add-on trailer has shades of Hotline Miami


Our first look at Criminal Activity
May 26
// Brett Makedonski
EA and Visceral would want you to watch this new Battlefield Hardline trailer and take away the broader details of the upcoming Criminal Activity DLC. But, that's near impossible when there are guys with guns weari...

Oh, hey, that's digital Peter Stormare! How eerily accurate. He's going to be in Until Dawn, the upcoming choice-driven survival horror game for PlayStation 4 in which pretty young people are stranded at a remote lodge with ...

12 minutes of the Final Fantasy fighter Dissidia


Currently in arcades
May 26
// Steven Hansen
The currently Japan-only, arcade-only (a PS4 release down the line is likely) Final Fantasy fighter (spun off from the PSP series) has some new footage fresh from arcade cabinet location testing. The 3-on-3 fighter looks deep. Right now the breakdown of the six confirmed characters is Heavy (Cloud, Warrior of Light), Speed (Lightning, Onion Knight), and Ranged (Terra, Y’shtola).

Mad Max trailer is seriously missing some Furiosa

May 26
// Steven Hansen
Oh, man. Look, I trust in Avalanche's (Just Cause) ability to make crazy, fun, open action games, even if I'm leery about the studio putting out two in one year (Mad Max and Just Cause 3).  But! And this is a honking 'o...

You too can create this unholy monstrosity with amiibo in Yoshi's Woolly World


Uh...nightmare fuel much, Nintendo?
May 26
// Chris Carter
My God, Nintendo, what have you done. According to Nintendo of Europe, "over 40 amiibo" can be used in Yoshi's Woolly World. You'll be able to create gross voodoo dolls dedicated to smiting your eternal enemies with a slow and painful death cute woolly patterns for characters in the game. Yeah, this is amiibo support I can get behind. Nintendo of Europe [Twitter]

Sony has revealed a new trailer for What Remains of Edith Finch? and I'm digging the atmosphere. Apparently the narrative will focus on a series of short stories, all involving the death of different members of the Finch fam...

May 24
// Nic Rowen
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...

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...

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...

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


So...many...characters
May 22
// Chris Carter
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.
