Killer Instinct is combo-tastic... and it's free-to-play

This is damn ridiculous. When does it all end, Microsoft? When does it all end? I've just returned from a special Microsoft event where select members of the press could sample Xbox One titles before the E3 show floor opens. ...

PAX: Transistor is a worthy follow-up to Bastion

Only a few days ago, we heard that Transistor would be Supergiant Games' follow-up to Bastion and that it would be playable at PAX East 2013. Lucky convention-goers can play an early build of the game, on course for...

Europa Universalis IV: The betrayal of Venice

A wee while ago, I was struggling through blizzards raging across Iceland to cover the Paradox Convention in Reykjavik, hence all the previews I've been drip feeding you over the last week or so. The greatest struggle didn't ...

Preview: Madden NFL 13 gets serious on Wii U

Preview: The story of Creationism in SimCity

Odds are that as a child, you had the fascination of building things out of LEGOs. Or Lincoln Logs and Tinker Toys, if we're going back a ways. Whatever the case, as children, we have a keen enjoyment of building stuff. This ...

Project P-100 was one of the better Wii U games at PAX

While I can't say I was wholeheartedly impressed with every one of the Wii U's offerings at PAX this year, one game did stand out as a fun and unique addition to the system's growing compendium of third-party titles. Project...

PAX: MOGA gives mobile the buttons we've always wanted

Up until now I have always chosen a 3DS or Vita over my phone, even if it meant sacrificing portability. Why? Buttons, man. Buttons. While there are a few smartly designed mobile games that don't need buttons, there are still...

E3: Hands-on with ZombiU

E3: Daedalic and the return of the classic adventure game

One of my favorite things to do at E3 is visit the smaller publisher and developers and try out their games. Usually creative and made with such a large amount of heart, the smaller games at E3 are always a breath of fresh ai...

E3: Hands-on with Project P-100

Project P-100 (working title) from Platinum Games (creators of Viewtiful Joe and MadWorld) was one of the strangest Wii U games I played on the show floor at E3. And that is not necessarily a bad thing. In a way, it reminded ...
