Darn! Sounds like Zelda Wii U won't be out this year

Arguably the biggest Wii U game of the year, Zelda, won't release in 2015 after all. Or, at least, Nintendo is "no longer making a 2015 release [its] number one priority," to put it another way. In a video update, producer E...

Come on, you didn't think GTA V on PC would look bad, did you?

While PC users patiently wait to become the last people on earth to play Grand Theft Auto V, they can temporarily sate the need for open-world mayhem with these gorgeous images. Expansive skylines, incredible lighting, detail...

Forget zombies, bears are the best part of H1Z1

H1Z1 is a game about surviving the zombie apocalypse. It should be a game about surviving the bear apocalypse, because they are way fucking scarier than any zombie. But, maybe that hits too close to home since bears migh...

The GTA V update turned my character black

Okay, I admit: sometimes I do wish I were black. However, that desire never translated into the virtual gaming space because, I don't know, I guess I felt it didn't really represent me? Well, thanks to the recent Grand Theft ...

Terraria: Otherworld's GDC trailer drops more hints about its alternate universe

When Terraria: Otherworld was announced, it was difficult to tell from the trailer what makes it stand apart from its big brother Terraria or futuristic half-cousin Starbound. Developer Re-Logic's description gave some insig...

We Happy Few's bright exterior hides a dark secret photo
We Happy Few's bright exterior hides a dark secret
by Darren Nakamura

For a while, the general aesthetic in games was dark and grimy, with muted colors to convey dismal feelings. The more recent counterculture of color was welcomed, bringing happiness back to the medium. But a funny thing happens when colorful palettes are taken a step too far. Add too many big smiles, bright eyes, and soothing pastels, and the mood turns from joyful to creepy.

We Happy Few cashes in on this uncanny area past whimsy. Its world is so bright that it feels alien. Indeed, behind the vivid color of Compulsion's newest creation is a dark place. It may be pretty, but it is eerier than any run-down mansion on a stormy night.

Mad Max is releasing the same week as MGS V

How unfortunate. Warner Bros. and Avalanche Studios announced the release date for Mad Max on PC, PS4, and Xbox One: September 1 in North America, the same as Metal Gear Solid V, and September 4 in the United Kingdom. Also, t...

Megaton Rainfall is superhero action on an epic scale photo
Megaton Rainfall is superhero action on an epic scale
by Alessandro Fillari

Last month, we got a tease from an upcoming indie action title that will put players in the role of a superhero during an alien invasion. The trailer certainly inspired a lot of interest, as it was more somber and earnest, not loud and over the top like other superhero games we've seen.

Watching the footage, I got the impression Megaton Rainfall was a mix between Superman and Earth Defense Force, which sounds like it would make for an exciting title. Thankfully, we didn't have to wait too long to play, as the sole developer Alfonso Del Cerro was excited to get the game in player's hands at GDC 2015's Indie Megabooth.

Dubbed a "first-person superhero game" by its creator, Megaton Rainfall feels like a unique blend of genres.

Assassin's Creed will feature more modern day segments in the future

The amusing glitch-fest that was Assassin's Creed Unity didn't intentionally eschew the series' whacked out modern day narrative. In fact, more dalliances into now-time were planned for Unity, Assassin's Creed lead writer Dar...

Chop looks nice and furry in GTA V for PC

April 14, 2015. Barring any extra delays, that's when Grand Theft Auto V will release for PC. Rockstar released 15 screenshots today that aren't making our wait any easier. Good job, people responsible for capturing these scenes -- you correctly assumed I'd want to see how Chop the rottweiler looks in the PC version. My mind goes straight to the animals, always.

Far Cry 4 somehow gets more dangerous in Valley of the Yetis

If Far Cry 4's jaunt through Kyrat serves as any indication, the Himalayas are an incredibly dangerous place. Whatever isn't trying to maul you is trying to shoot bullets at you. It's like being caught between a rock and a h...

Get possessive over Gotham in this Batman: Arkham Knight trailer

The upcoming, M-rated end to Rocksteady's Arkham trilogy has a lovely new trailer out today. And this one isn't polished, artsy CG the series is known for. Some well cut in-game footage, a view of the rogues gallery teaming ...

Batman: Arkham Knight has an M rating

The end of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises, squeaked by with a PG-13, but it looks like Rocksteady's Arkham trilogy didn't have the same luck. Arkham Knight director Sefton Hill told IGN that the gam...

It looks like Just Cause 3 will end 2015 on a high note

Cool song! And it's nice to have a holiday 2015 release window locked in for Just Cause 3 (PC, PS4, Xbox One), but I'll take gameplay footage over a CG trailer any day. Where's that? Writing on the PlayStation Blog, Avalanch...
