iPhone hit Pivvot is coming to Steam next week

Mobile-to-PC ports don't have the best of track records but I've got some high hopes for the home computer version of Pivvot, a great mobile game which was one of my favorites from 2013. It has such a simple concept: to keep...

Review: Killzone: Shadow Fall: Intercept photo
Review: Killzone: Shadow Fall: Intercept
by Kyle MacGregor

Killzone: Shadow Fall was a respectable launch game. It showcased the power of the nascent PS4 with scintillating visuals, and paired its aesthetic beauty with a competent campaign and sound multiplayer component. 

The shooter wasn't exactly a revelation, but the glossy sheen, at the very least, provided a fine entrée to the new generation. It's been nearly a year since then, and Guerrilla Games has kept the lights on with a myriad of alternations and enhancements, the most recent of which has arrived in the co-operative expansion Intercept.

Stay far away from these Killing Floor 2 monsters

Slashers, and Crawlers, and Clots, oh my! Everything in this Killing Floor 2 trailer looks positively no bueno. Especially that Fleshpound character. His concrete pound looks aggressive enough, and I doubt that skin would hold up any better than that cement did.

Fable Legends combines Left 4 Dead with Dungeons and Dragons photo
Fable Legends combines Left 4 Dead with Dungeons and Dragons
by Darren Nakamura

For better or worse, Fable is one of the staple series for Xbox consoles. Since its beginning as a relatively simple action-RPG, it has seen some entries go off in various directions. Fable Legends is another game that takes the core gameplay and spins it off into something unique for the franchise.

Rather than focusing on a single player adventure with highly customizable character progression, heroes in Fable Legends are one of four set characters, and the four venture together to take on more action-oriented challenges. It might be a far cry from main series Fable, but it works well.

Yoshi's Woolly World looks AMAZING photo
Yoshi's Woolly World looks AMAZING
by Jordan Devore

At Nintendo's E3 Digital Event, Good-Feel gave us a long-awaited progress update on Yarn Yoshi, and it's without a doubt the Yoshi game we've been waiting for all these years. It's now called Yoshi's Woolly World and is set for release on Wii U next year.

Good-Feel wanted to create a new type of Yoshi game filled with the same kinds of elements from the adorable Kirby's Epic Yarn, but this time, the world has proper depth, visually.

Much of the focus has been placed on exploration, specifically by way of Yoshi's unique abilities and, going a step further, a two-player mode. Both players are Yoshi -- one red, one green -- and can eat and spit each other out to reach new areas. I'm in love.
