The wheels are in motion
Telltale seems to be getting into the swing of things with Game of Thrones, in more ways than one. For starters, it only took seven weeks since the last episode for this one to come out. If Telltale can keep up that pace, the... read feature

Japan gets the best games again: Neko Atsume is the cutest shit


Cat game
Mar 25
I've been seeing a few people posting screenshots of this adorably drawn cat game all over Twitter lately and I've had no idea what it was. Thanks to this helpful blog, however, I am now learned. The game is Neko Atsume, an i... read

Spoilers for Episode 2 in the video
Mar 23
Well, this one snuck up on me. I thought I had been following most of Telltale's releases pretty closely, but it turns out that Game of Thrones Episode 3: The Sword in the Darkness is coming out tomorrow. Who knew? In the tr... read

Final Fantasy Grandmasters and Final Fantasy XI Mobile
Mar 19
Final Fantasy XI is 13 years old. As is the case with 13-year-olds, Square Enix is getting a bit sick of dealing with it.  The PS2 and Xbox 360 versions of the MMO will shut down in March of 2016. Final Fantasy XI's main... read

Over 100 Atlas Mugged screenshots

Another Telltale episode, another excessively large set of screenshots taken as I played through with an Xbox 360 controller while keeping my pinky finger on the F12 key. Tales from the Borderlands still looks great despite t... read

Final Fantasy Record Keeper headed to a smartphone near you this spring


It was somewhat inevitable

This year, Square Enix is makin' it rain Final Fantasy spinoffs on us. I mean, we've got Final Fantasy Type-0 HD coming in hot just next week, and DeNA and Square Enix just revealed the launch of Final Fantasy: Record Keeper ... read
Mevius Final Fantasy

Mevius Final Fantasy looks kind of hot, aside from the mobile thing


A job-system-based save-the-girl-in-the-crystal mobile romp
Mar 10
I've got to hand it to Square Enix -- Mevius Final Fantasy does look impressive. Certainly no All the Bravest. I also don't want to play games on my cellphone so this is not for me. So it's fine that it is only coming to iOS and Android in Japan this spring. Though I am feeling the weird backless, capris overalls at 1:13. Wish I had back muscles like that. read
Lost Within

Coming to iOS and Fire devices

Telltale Borderlands Ep 2

Tales from the Borderlands Episode 2 set to release week of March 17


Atlas Mugged
Mar 08
Telltale's panel came and went with some fun stories of the studio's journey but nary an announcement of what the developer is doing now. Judging from the comments in just about every Telltale article that goes up, the second... read
Three-button bliss
A glance at Downwell's tricolor palette in still shots doesn't really do it justice. Watching it in motion gives a better idea what it does, but not until actually playing it does it all click. It is built around a simple mec... read feature

Rockman Xover

Rockman Xover will be shut down at the end of this month


Mega Man was dead, risen on mobile, will he rise again?

Have you experienced the trainwreck that is Rockman Xover yet? The free mobile game may not be available in the west, but it's still the only surviving and active Mega Man game -- that is, until the end of this mont... read

Extrasolar

Extrasolar's mobile interface got a slick update


Controlling an exoplanet rover on the go

Extrasolar has always been a tough sell for hardcore gamers, in my eyes. Though it was one of my top games of last year, most readers tune out when they see a description like "free-to-play science simulator," and going any f... read

There's a new BlazBlue rhythm game and it's out now


Brace yourselves, anti-mobile and free-to-play comments are coming
Feb 25
"This isn't the BlazBlue game you're looking for," he persuades you with a small wave of the hand. Okay, maybe it is. Maybe you're in the market for a "gluttonous" rhythm game where you "eat to the beat of BlazBlue." In that ... read

Cave has a new shoot-'em-up hitting mobile in April


Probably only in Japan, sadly

DoDonPachi studio Cave is back with a new mobile shooter, "Gothic Magic Maiden," which is set to arrive in Japan on April 16. Whether it will ever come west seems pretty doubtful, though. Cave shuttered its official Eng... read

Stylish endless snowboarder Alto's Adventure now on iPhone and iPad


It's nice when mobile games respect your time

It's rare that I cover mobile games here but I couldn't let Alto's Adventure slide by me. This is pegged as an "endless snowboarding odyssey" with a one-button trick system and 180 goals to best. Other things worth noting be... read
Spectra

Race through ten Chipzel songs on a laser track in Spectra


Billed as 'F-Zero meets Audiosurf'
Feb 18
"F-Zero meets Audiosurf" brings some vivid imagery to mind, but after watching the above trailer, I'm not sure I agree with that tagline for the indie racer Spectra. Sure, it's set to some bumpin' Chipzel tracks, but it look... read
