There's gonna be a goddamn Final Fantasy XV pinball game

I know what you've wondering about Final Fantasy XV ever since it was announced way back when as Final Fantasy Versus XIII. Is it going to have a tie-in pinball game for mobile platforms? Well, buddy, let me just tell you something. You bet...

 
Leo's Fortune review
Coins. Plenty of games have them scattered around to collect, but few explain why they're there in the first place. If they're so valuable, why did somebody just leave them there? Leo's Fortune gives a reason. The titular mus...   read

Sonic's next adventure takes him to Piggy Island

Something has happened to Sonic. It's been happening for years. Sonic is a weird porn figure, the subject of countless adolescent Deviantart drawings and erotic fan-fics by kids still figuring themselves out. Also, us, when we celebrated So...

Project J looks like a trippy little game I could waste some time with

Sometimes I just want to zone out with some synth music, bright colors, and pure gameplay. Super Hexagon works well for that, but it is always nice to try something new. Project J has an interesting hook to it, where the light is navigatin...
