For real this time: Terraria releases on Wii U in June

Re-Logic's action-adventure sandbox game Terraria finally made it over to 3DS, but that elusive Wii U version? Still upcoming! Publisher 505 Games has locked in a release date at last, though -- it's launching at retail in Europe on June 24...

 
Push Me Pull You review
Push Me Pull You is a game about two-headed intestinal worm people rubbing up against each other in the name of good, wholesome sports. While wrestling for control of a ball, they can shrink down to CatDog size for better agility, or stretch way out into a coiled, protective fleshy mess. It would be horrifying if it weren't so damn charming and chipper.   read

Infinity Ward isn't bringing Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare to PS3, Xbox 360

After Call of Duty: Black Ops III dropped its campaign mode in order to squeak by on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that the next entry, November's Infinite Warfare, is skipping the languishing last-gen...

You can also snag a shiny Xerneas and Yveltal this month

It sounds like some of you swooped right in to secure Darkrai from GameStop and even helped out your fellow trainers, but there are a couple more giveaways coming up this month. Good ones, too! May 2 - 8: Zygarde May 11 - 17: Shiny Xernea...

I hope this Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War teaser is for a new game

We are ready for another Dawn of War game, but is Relic Entertainment? I sure hope so! This teaser video and the series' official site both point to an announcement happening tomorrow at 7:00am Pacific. May 3 and Dawn of War III? Could it ...

 
Nioh impressions
I've been putting off the Nioh alpha demo not for lack of interest, but because I knew I'd need to play at my most attentive. Team Ninja's PlayStation 4 action-RPG has come across as a Japanese mythology-infused Dark Souls wi...   read

Kojima playing a bunch of arcade games is a real daymaker

Designer Hideo Kojima attended the Game On exhibition in Tokyo and brought along writer/editor/best bud Kenji Yano, who has now officially joined the new Kojima Productions, for some wholesome arcade-fueled fun. I didn't know I needed to s...

You know, we probably don't need a Shinobi movie

Sega's shuriken-chucking arcade game Shinobi is being adapted into a feature film. Why? "We love the Shinobi games and believe that the world of ninjas has never been properly explored onscreen," says producer Marc Platt, who previously wor...

Ratchet & Clank on PS4 is the series' fastest-seller

I've seen a lot of love for the new Ratchet & Clank game, but I couldn't tell if that was the social media echo-chamber effect or if there really were a bunch of people getting way into Insomniac's refresh of the PlayStation 2 original ...

First-week Total War: Warhammer players will get the Chaos Warriors

Creative Assembly has extended its pre-order incentive for Total War: Warhammer. Now, players who buy the strategy title during its first week (up until May 31 at 10:00am Pacific) will also receive the Chaos Warriors Race Pack. It's a seemi...

Forza Motorsport 6: Apex opens its beta next week

Turn 10 is bringing Forza over to PC soon, but if you missed the initial announcement, well, this isn't exactly a dream scenario we're talking about here. Importantly, Forza Motorsport 6: Apex is a free-to-play title, one with a "curated si...

Asemblance is an X-Files-inspired psychological thriller

I haven't even watched a single episode of the most recent X-Files run despite all of my Twitter-hot-take-fueled morbid curiosity, and yet that series as point of reference is still enough to get an immediate click out of me. This is Asemb...

Crytek releases The Climb for Oculus Rift

Even with full safety gear, reassuring floor mats, and those dorky little shoes, rock climbing indoors is something I find to be both scary and exhilarating. I can't even entertain the idea of free climbing out in nature, but virtually? M...

Hell yes I'll play Duck Game for free this weekend

Duck Game is holding a free weekend event on Steam, and since it's three days long, that could end up being enough time for you to have some hearty laughs and get your fill of the crazed battle arena title. It's best played in the same room...

The Pokemon re-releases were downloaded 1.5 million times

We touched on Nintendo's financial results for the fiscal year ended March 2016, noting that profits fell 60.6 percent in part because of a "lack of major titles," but there was another breakout tidbit that caught my eye: the Pokémon...

Unnerving adventure Oxenfree coming to PS4

Quantum Break has a new Xbox One update with lots of fixes

How are you liking Quantum Break? It's much more divisive than I expected it to be, but then, I didn't have to contend with performance problems and other technical mishaps found in the Windows 10 version. That stuff surely would have color...

Even Babymetal is teaming up with Mario Maker

The metal idol group Babymetal is coming to Super Mario Maker as a character costume, which is something I should probably find strange, but don't -- not after the pigeon, Barbara the Bat, and Chitoge Kirisaki. Nintendo has gone to unexpec...

Temper your expectations for May's Games with Gold

If April's Games with Gold lineup was the best yet, and I'm inclined to agree with Brett that it was, then whatever Microsoft has in store for May can't possibly stack up. I had that sentiment in mind when reading over the list of what's co...

PSN's Golden Week sale has deals on Gravity Rush, Yakuza 5, and Digimon

It's for the best that I'm preoccupied with Dark Souls III (new game++ and the continued grind for Darkmoon items, here I come!) and testing my luck in Alienation's hardcore mode. Otherwise, I'd be inclined to stock up on a bunch of titles ...

Blizzard responds to the vanilla WoW server 'Nostalrius' shutdown

The fan-run vanilla World of Warcraft server Nostalrius gained enough attention that Blizzard took notice and issued a cease and desist earlier this month, prompting its shutdown. Predictably, that move has led to even more support for the ...

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 has slipped out of my nightly rotation, but I clocked I don't even wanna know how many hours when I was still actively playing. If you were thinking of getting into the wacky shooter but haven't committe...

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare sure is a name

Based on a now-removed promotional listing found on PlayStation Network (alternate view here), the next Call of Duty will be called Infinite Warfare. Assuming that's true, and it sounds just silly enough that it probably is, where does the...
