Ruiner is a slick-looking cyberpunk shooter

Reikon Games is taking us to 2091 with its upcoming top-down action-shooter Ruiner, and based on the cyberpunk imagery and snappy combat shown in this trailer, I am down. Where did this come from? It's being made in Warsaw by folks who pre...

Overwatch's first free comic is for McCree fans

Blizzard is largely building the world of Overwatch outside of the game itself, not unlike Valve's approach to Team Fortress 2 storytelling, and that means lots of animated shorts and also comics. Here's one! It's called McCree: Train Hoppe...

Teleporting stealth game Twin Souls lives on as Aragami

Oh good! Twin Souls, that Tenchu-inspired undead-assassin game, still exists. It's now known as Aragami, which should help it stand out better, and the footage in this re-reveal trailer is more exciting than what I remember of Lince Works'...

John Romero is teasing a new PC shooter

Ahead of a reveal on Monday, April 25, John Romero and Adrian Carmack of Doom and Quake fame are teasing "a new first-person shooter [that's] being built at Night Work Games Ltd. in Galway, Ireland." Earlier this year, Romero spoke to Deve...

I'm feeling YIIK's unusual RPG vibes

I figured YIIK: A Postmodern RPG was out by now and I had just missed it, but it looks like Ackk Studios is targeting a summer 2016 release for its strange, late-'90s-set, "Japanese-style" role-playing title. Extra time for another round o...

The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth is about to crush spirits on Xbox One and PS4

I've let The Binding of Isaac get away from me as far as the expansions are concerned. I know how I get when I become wrapped up in this game, and it's not pretty! But, re-reading Nic's review of Afterbirth now -- "You should absolutely pla...

PlayStation gamers can finally play Shadow Complex next month

Shadow Complex? Still great! It's a thrill to start out with little more than a flashlight only to eventually become this supersuit-wearing force of nature that can walk off missile strikes and stare down mechs. Chair Entertainment brought...

Kerbal Space Program has a new interface and runs better

Kerbal Space Program is one of the most daunting video games I've ever taken on, but I am so glad I made an effort to dig in, actually learn a thing or two about real-world orbital mechanics, and gain a new appreciation for how scary-insane...

This Tracer trailer for Heroes of the Storm is so dang charming

I haven't gotten to play as Tracer in Heroes of the Storm yet because I don't have Overwatch pre-ordered and she won't be widely available for purchase in the store until next week, but that's okay. There's this utterly adorable animation...

Klei's superb stealth-strategy game Invisible, Inc. comes to PS4

People know Klei for Don't Starve or Mark of the Ninja or maybe even Shank, but I rarely if ever hear folks casually bring up Invisible, Inc., the studio's turn-based corporate espionage game. Hopefully today's PlayStation 4 port will get i...

Okay, this fan-made Mario Football mock-up is great

I used to be fairly into sports video games back when they tended to be more straightforward, arcade-style experiences -- stuff the whole family could easily learn to play and love. Heck, to this day, I still regularly revisit titles from t...

Devolver Digital's Humble Bundle is tempting

"Too bad I own most of these games." There. Saved some of you the effort of having to type that comment out. The new Humble Bundle is a nice mix of Devolver Digital titles, but I'll likely sit this one out as someone mostly caught up with t...

There's some messed-up stuff in this Let it Die teaser

Grasshopper Manufacture has shared one final tease for its PlayStation 4 survival-action game Let it Die ahead of the PAX East showing this weekend. The trailer lacks gameplay (you can get a real basic sense of that in the recent screensho...

This wily Dark Souls III player has embraced his inner Patches

It's wild to think that I only started Dark Souls III about a week ago, and wilder yet to come to the (worrying!) realization that I've somehow clocked a solid 35 hours of play time in that brief window. From Software's action-RPGs are amo...

Street Fighter V's April update adds Guile and a 'rage quit' solution

For a guy in his mid-50s, Guile is looking ripped! He's next in line to join the Street Fighter V roster and will arrive later this month as part of an update that also introduces the Air Force Base stage, addresses rage quitters, and touch...

We're two weeks out from the Overwatch open beta

This whole not-being-able-to-try-Overwatch thing has been a bummer, but our day will come. Blizzard is officially winding down the closed beta on Monday, April 25, so if you're still compulsively checking your email for access, you can stop...

The Battle Cats 3DS is coming to the West after all

Shortly after learning about The Battle Cats through a Japanese Nintendo Direct presentation last year, I decided that rather than wait for the 3DS version to possibly get localized, I'd be better off playing the existing mobile game to sat...

Sony will begin demoing PlayStation VR at retail in June

You're probably sick of being told that you need to see (or experience, or become one with) virtual reality before you "can truly get it." Which is fair! There's a layer of truth to that sentiment, but it's so often used to shut down health...

Tracer is unrelenting in Heroes of the Storm

Blizzard is transplanting Tracer from Overwatch to Heroes of the Storm soon and after watching this video summing up her play style and abilities, I have a pile of gold with her name on it. She's a rapid-fire ranged assassin who can attack...

MercurySteam unveils Raiders of the Broken Planet

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow developer MercurySteam has been teasing a new project for a while now, leading to all sorts of wild speculation that it was going to take on another storied franchise (possibly Metal Gear!), but its next game is...

Hey, now you can play Doom 3 and Monaco on your Xbox One

Two more Xbox 360 games are now playable on Xbox One as the console's backward compatibility list continues to expand in strange, seemingly random ways: the once-spooky-scary Doom 3 BFG Edition, and the cooperative arcade heist title Monaco...

There's a reward for playing the Gears of War 4 beta

The Coalition is holding back a set of cosmetic items, the "Vintage Kait Reward Pack," for folks who participate in the Gears of War 4 beta and rank up to level 20. If you can't quite make out the text in that tweet, the individual items a...

Namco's Arcade Game Series kicks off next week on PC, PS4, Xbox One

Do I need to buy Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man, Galaga, or Dig Dug yet again? No, not really. But the chance to do so is about to present itself through new ports for PlayStation 4, Steam, and Xbox One, and I can't be held accountable for my late-ni...

You can play Rainbow Six Siege for free on Steam until Sunday

That Dark Souls III Estus Flask replica is embarrassing junk

I hope none of you bought the Dark Souls III Prima Official Game Guide - Estus Flask Edition specifically for its namesake. Normally $129.99 (or around $80 on Amazon right now), the collector's edition package includes an 8" metal sword boo...

Kirby: Planet Robobot looks great in this overview

Remember hopping in a mech in Mega Man X, punching the crap out of everything in your way, and not wanting to finish the level because doing so would mean ditching the armored suit to fit through the boss gate? Good times! That's what I th...

There's a big Lego game sale on PlayStation Network

My strategy for Lego titles has been to hold off as best I can until they inevitably hit super-low prices. It usually doesn't take long, and if I get bored with the title or otherwise regret the purchase, that's fine -- I'm not out much mon...

Indie darling Stardew Valley passes one million sales

Last we heard, the feel-good farming sim Stardew Valley had sold some 425,000 copies on Steam. It's been about a month since then, and in that time, the figure has ballooned past a million. "It's actually at 1,007,000 [copies sold] as of no...

Housemarque's Alienation really snuck up on me

I wasn't able to become invested in Housemarque's Dead Nation like I was with the studio's other games, but its next "relentless" twin-stick shooter, Alienation, speaks to me. It's you and a squad of exosuit-wearing buddies clearing out th...

Lando and Dengar are heading to Star Wars Battlefront

Much to my surprise, the recent Outer Rim expansion for Star Wars Battlefront was enough to pull me back into the game. But the feeling won't last long without a #content drip-feed. I'm restless! Looking ahead, EA has an overview of what's ...
