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

"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 ...

Rez, Lumines creator working on puzzle RPG '18'

Race through ten Chipzel songs on a laser track in Spectra

"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...

#Fortune is a game that predicts your future by reading your tweets photo
#Fortune is a game that predicts your future by reading your tweets
by Jonathan Holmes

As a youth, I became temporarily obsessed with an early Rare title for the NES called Taboo. It was a simple fortune telling game that used virtual Tarot cards to predict your future, but it inspired a deep level of fascination within me and my friends. If this game existed, it must have some purpose, right? There must be some meaning we could squeeze out of it, some understanding that we could eke out of its code. If there was method to its madness, and we could come to understand that method, maybe we would understand what adults thought was important, and then figure out a way to outsmart them forever. 

That lasted about a week before we gave up. If we had something like #Fortune back then, we may have never given up. #Fortune's creator Zach Gage (SpellTower, Ridiculous Fishing) probably knows what I mean. He's been playing the game himself since 2013, when it first manifested as physical instillation piece. It was a follow up to Best Day Ever, a bot account that Gage had designed in 2009 to aggregate pure positivity from Twitter. #Fortune was also a bot, but instead of positivity, it worked to use Twitter to predict your future.

What appears to be a random set of daily message at may start to reveal some interconnected meaning over time, or it just might make you laugh to read a distorted picture of your future as crafted by your present online persona. As Gage puts it "Who we are online is often a carefully crafted version of who we want to be. Tweets might be like mantras, tiny self-fulfilling prophesies... Or they might just be little lies we tell ourselves. #Fortune is both."

#Fortune is free on iOS

Review: Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect: Episode One photo
Review: Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect: Episode One
by Chris Carter

I was skeptical of Sons of Anarchy at first, but once I realized it was Hamlet on wheels I was in. Its seven season run wasn't perfect (particularly the Belfast plotline), but it kept me thoroughly entertained throughout, wanting to check in every week to see where the Sons took me.

Having just ended the show, series creator Kurt Sutter likely wants to keep the good times rolling, with a potential prequel TV series, and now, a brand new adventure game called The Prospect

Review: Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series: The Lost Lords
by Darren Nakamura

I would not last a day in Westeros. My best hope would be to spend some time in Oldtown to train as a maester, and even though it would help to protect me from personally going to war, I would probably be too close to the political intrigue underneath it all.

Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series: The Lost Lords is out, and now some of the seeds sown in Episode One are ready to harvest. As it turns out, I made all of the wrong decisions in Iron From Ice, and I continue to make all of the wrong decisions. With the path it is currently on, my version of House Forrester is doomed.
