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
// Chris Carter
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...

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
// Chris Carter
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.
