Swery65's D4 is all about finding D, dodging weirdos

Swery65 brought us Deadly Premonition, so you know D4 is going to be weird. In fact, Swery told me that he drafted six or seven different stories to work on next and in his partnership with Microsoft, went with the "most biza...

Costume Quest 2 isn't for the hardcore, but it's for the hardcorn

If there's one thing that the folks at Double Fine aren't known for, it's being pigeon-holed into making the same game. In fact, almost all of its titles are wildly different from one another. From the likes of Brüt...

Valiant Hearts: The Great War is haunting

I don't know about you, but I really like Ubisoft's recent output of games utilizing the UbiArts Framework engine. I'm quite a fan of games that use 2D visuals to tell a story, and even with the recent release of Child of Lig...

Preview: Murdered: Soul Suspect

The last few times we've written about Murdered: Soul Suspect, the discussions centered around next gen ports.

The year was 2012. Radioactive bees ruled the skies, filling their endocrine sacs with the remaining wisps of human hope, and garlic wolves devoured the remains. Meanwhile, Double Fine put out a wildly successful Kickstarter ...
