Preview: Falling right into Pokemon X & Y

Are you a boy or a girl? My preview of Pokemon X and Y last month left me plenty excited. There was a lot to take in: Mega Evolutions, a lunatic scientist, an extra dimension. However, the demo also left something to be desir...

Yes really: Child of Light is a JRPG from Ubisoft

Yeah, you read that headline right. Trust me, I was having a hard time wrapping my head around it too, but sure enough, a Japanese-style role-playing game from Ubisoft. Even stranger, Child of Light is by writer Jeffrey Yoha...

Always Sometimes Monsters won't give you warm fuzzies

Are you a good person? I like to think I am, but I guess I don't really know. "Good" is a relative term, and the line can become muddled pretty quickly. Everything's circumstantial, and it doesn't take long for self-preservat...

Lords of the Fallen keeps looking better and better

Lords of the Fallen looked good at E3; it looks even better at PAX Prime. After another hands-off demo, the next-generation action role-playing game really seems to be coming along nicely. Admirably, it seeks to improve,...

Pokemon X and Pokemon Y are currently playable in Japan at the Pokemon Game Show. We got a look at the same hands-on demo, minus the 10 minute time limit and the assuredly hours-long line. The demo opens with you as a rand...

Preview: The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot

It should go as no surprise that Ubisoft’s The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot caught a lot of people by surprise at this year’s E3. A clever combination of two genres that inherently belong together; this lovechild of...

Lords of the Fallen shows a lot of promise

Action role-playing games are usually hit-or-miss in the way that they're received. The slightest deviancy in mechanics can turn a thrilling affair into a mundane and unexciting one. For the past few years, From Software's De...

I'm down with Dragon's Crown

Dragon's Crown is easily one of my favorite games of E3. It's been on my radar for years, back when it was being published by UTV Ignition, but I've kept my distance lately with the visual style controversy. I had the opportunity to really dig in here at E3, and I like where it's headed.There's a lot more to this game than its polarizing visual style, so let's check it out.

The Witcher 3 impressed the hell out of me

Those of you who haven't really gotten into The Witcher series might not be too invested in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt yet despite how great it looks. That's something you'll want to change leading up to release acros...

Devilish delight: Shin Megami Tensei IV hands-on

In a room full of peers I embarrassed myself. A few weeks back, I found myself in a meeting room along with folks that head up a lot of the other gaming websites and magazines in America. After a brief presentation,...

Hands-on with Borderlands 2's take on Dungeons & Dragons

It's been a hell of ride, with a fair share of high and low points, but the Borderlands 2 season of content is finally at an end. As the last campaign downloadable content for Borderlands 2, there's a considerable amount of p...

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team is full of horrible Luigi puns

I'm not the biggest RPG guy on staff, but I've enjoyed every single Mario & Luigi game to date. They're just so charming, and it's looking like Dream Team is no different, based on my recent hands-on time. The premise is ...

The Telepath Tactics map editor is simple and easy to use

When I got a chance to play Telepath Tactics at PAX East last month, I got a pretty good idea of how the game plays. What I didn't get the opportunity to so was mess around with the map editor, a large part of what makes Tele...
