Here's how Miegakure's four-dimensional puzzles work

Miegakure has been around for several years -- and it's not done yet -- but the last time I took a real good look at it, the game was still rocking placeholder art. It's been a while. In all that time, the core concept of so...

OlliOlli grinds perfectly onto PS4 and PS3

Minimalist skateboarding game OlliOlli first kickflipped its way into our hearts this January when it landed on PlayStation Vita, and now it's rolled onto PS3 and PS4. The console version is every bit as gnarly as its portable predecessor. Plus, it features cross-buy and cross-save functionality, so experienced shredders needn't stall jumping back in.

Escape Escape Dead Island's time loop on November 18

Do you like piña coladas and getting caught in zombie-infested time loops? Are you not into yoga, but into land masses that are surrounded by water on all sides? Deep Silver took out a personal ad. It wants ...

These are your free PlayStation Plus games for September photo
These are your free PlayStation Plus games for September
by Steven Hansen

Not a bad haul. Sportsfriends is great for local co-op. PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale probably is, too. I've been meaning to go back and play it since they added Kat from Gravity Rush. And TxK is a real good Vita game. Hoard (PS3) is, uh, probably okay.

Joe Danger is hitting the Vita, too, along with Velocity 2X (PS4, Vita). Both are going to be free with PS+ right at their launch.

I enjoyed Dragon Age: Inquisition's multiplayer more than I thought photo
I enjoyed Dragon Age: Inquisition's multiplayer more than I thought
by Chris Carter

There have been rumors of a multiplayer component in Dragon Age: Inquisition for quite a while. BioWare has been keeping things under wraps for months after a small hint of its inclusion, and speculation was rampant as to what exactly it might entail.

After a recent visit to BioWare's offices I had a chance to sit down with the multiplayer extensively, and I found myself slowly becoming addicted as the afternoon went on. In fact, I liked it far more than Mass Effect 3's co-op mode -- so I have high hopes for Inquisition.

by Bill Zoeker

Max and Bill stop by to check in and drop some knowledge before heading of to Seattle for PAX Prime this week! Twitch got bought out by Amazon, not Google. Pokemon gets a fighting game, that you can only play in Japanese arcades. Bill gets hype on Donald Glover playing Spider-Man. And of course, our PAX Prime plans.

See more of Platinum's Legend of Korra game

We're in a great point in technology that 2D properties can be faithfully represented in 3D instead of looking weird and uncanny. Platinum's Legend of Korra game looks pretty neat, even to someone who hasn't watched the...

Ninja Theory made its Hellblade reveal trailer in eight weeks

I almost skipped over this Hellblade developer's diary. Maybe it's a default reaction to games with "hell" (or "blade?" both?) in the title. Forgot this was from Ninja Theory and that, as an enormous fan of Enslaved, I ...
