Publishers think Swery's next game idea is 'perverted'


It sounds amazing
May 12
I'd be perfectly content with a conclusion to Dark Dreams Don't Die, but Hidetaka "Swery" Suehiro's idea for a new game sounds bizarre, original, and worth exploring. Here's how he described it in an interview with GameCentra... read

Rub kiwi juice on pregnant Elsa's belly, and more terrible Frozen games


Do you want to clean a baby?
Apr 20
A few months ago, Jordan dutifully informed us of a game that we probably could've gone our whole lives without knowing about: a Frozen game in which Anna gives birth. What if I told you there are more Frozen pregn... read

I hope Veryman.Expert becomes America's next great pastime


Let's fast track this sucker
Apr 10
Think about the weirdest thing you saw today. Veryman.Expert is probably weirder. It's a browser-based god game, so to speak, about creating men. There are no losers, ever. You can adjust your man's movements -- a touch of Le... read

Guy 'gits gud,' beats Bloodborne without leveling


No guns, either
Apr 03
YouTube user BOYvsVIDEOGAME decided to beat Bloodborne without leveling up or using a gun, and he's done it. Somehow -- with a lot of patience and practice, I'd imagine -- he's done it. He went with the Waste of Skin origin f... read

Guy beats Dark Souls with DK Bongos


You're a shining star
Mar 23
That was a scary couple of minutes there while I dug through storage to confirm that, yes, my DK Bongos and copy of Donkey Konga have not vanished in recent years. My drum-whacking abilities have since dried up, though. Big ... read

There was almost ice skating in The Witcher 3


The concept was prototyped
Mar 09
Let's take a moment to imagine Geralt ice skating in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Ahh, sweet bliss. Over the weekend, senior game designer Damien Monnier told a crowd at PAX East about CD Projekt RED's canceled feature. "It was ... read

Haha, really? Interplay is bringing back ClayFighter


Remaster coming to PC next year
Mar 02
Mere days ago, I hoped out loud that 2015 would become the year of clay for videogames, and now there's an announcement for a remaster of ClayFighter. Shame it won't be out until 2016. Interplay and Drip Drop Games (who?) are... read

If this is what a 'rhythm violence' game looks like, I'm all about them


Nominated for Excellence in Audio at the Independent Games Festival
Feb 18
While watching this trailer for THUMPER, a self-described rhythm violence game from current Harmonix artist Brian Gibson and former lead programmer Marc Flury, I didn't want to blink. I also let out a confused "what?" follow... read

Call this phone number for a cryptic Hotline Miami 2 message


The game is coming out in March, maybe?
Feb 02
The Hotline Miami Twitter account just posted this phone number: +1 (786) 519-3708 ext 10. I called it, like you do, and got a weird message, as expected. "We are 50 Blessings. Together we march ... into the future." Before I... read

A game about Frozen's Anna giving birth

Another treasure from the mobile games space courtesy of former Destructoid editor Nick Chester. This one's called Anna Giving Birth and while I ponder what kind of audience this iPhone/iPad game exists to serve, I'll let the... read

This Kaizo Mario World speedrun stresses me out


It's hard to watch and yet I can't look away
Jan 08
"This is what happens when a very sadistic person gets ahold of a level editor." Some of us get a huge kick out of watching strangers overcome the odds in near-impossible games, and as far as those go, Kaizo Mario World (or ... read

Mad Catz' new controller looks like a Michael Bay Decepticon


And it's as expensive as one too
Jan 06
I can't look away from Mad Catz' new controller for Android devices and PC. I just can't. The L.Y.N.X. 9 is meant to "offer a premium [see: $299.99; yes, really] gaming experience in almost any situation," though it's primari... read

I don't know WTF #IDARB is but I want it


Debuting on Xbox One as a Games with Gold title in February
Dec 11
I've heard that title before, #IDARB. I know it's coming to Xbox One. But other than that, I'm clueless. Brett came into chat today wondering about it, and Nic said the game looked "amazingly silly" on Giant Bomb months ago.... read

Dead or Alive 5 headed to PC but it won't have online at launch


Armageddon
Dec 04
It's great to see a series like Dead or Alive finally come to PC. Less great, however, is that "Online modes for Dead or Alive 5 Last Round will be added in a patch within three months of release." I suppose it comes down to ... read

So long, sub-$100 PS4s: Walmart adjusts price-matching policy


Move along, nothing to see here

Thanks to Walmart's new online price matching, some customers were recently able to set up phony third-party listings on Amazon.com and convince the retailer to honor totally ridiculous discounts. For instance, how does a Pla... read

I can't make sense of this live-action Sportsball trailer


But I like it, anyway
Oct 30
This trailer for Sportsball -- not to be confused with Action Button Entertainment's Videoball; the narrator's delivery reminded me of Tim Rogers, a bit -- is something else. I feel like I need to watch it about four more ti... read

Nintendo has kids explain amiibo figures in Super Smash Bros.


Watch for the footage of eight-player battles

I made it to the closeup of Mario's face, roughly a minute in, before deciding that I needed to share this ridiculous video in which a boy buys an amiibo for Super Smash Bros. to impress a girl. Kyle says it's the worst thin... read

Infinite Crisis has a SoCal bro Green Lantern


And he looks douchey in all the wrong (right?) ways

We haven't talked about Infinite Crisis, the DC Comics-themed multiplayer online battle arena game, in a while. Truthfully, it's been fun to just look at its alternate-universe heroes and villains more than anything, what wit... read

Sonic x Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is, uh, yeah...


The Taiko Drum Master tie-in, on the other hand, is rad

Admittedly, this collaboration is slightly less horrifying once you realize it's a Felyne (or Palico, if you want to be precise) wearing Sonic the Hedgehog armor. Slightly. Still, I think this tops the sexy/stretchy fan art f... read

Help us decipher this Battleborn tweet from Gearbox's Randy Pitchford


Translator needed
Jul 08
This morning, Gearbox Software announced its next game, Battleborn, a cooperative first-person shooter that has elements traditionally found in multiplayer online battle arenas like League of Legends. Or, put another way: Perfect. I've been in the market for a hobby-grade co-op campaign with meta-growth and choice. read
