A Hideo Kojima Game

Fair amount of PS4 love from PlayStation Plus next month including, hell yes, the turn-based strategy title Skulls of the Shogun. But folks who held out on Ground Zeroes are in for the best treat of all. It'll be nice to have... read

Battlefield 4's big spring patch adds weapons and a gun-swapping mode


There's a pdf and everything
May 26
DICE rolled out its spring update for Battlefield 4 today and it's substantial enough to warrant a pdf with highlights. The short of it is five new guns, the return of Battlefield 3's Gun Master mode, and a revamp of the dama... read

With art like that, I don't even care what Child of Cooper is about


Last night I had the strangest dream
May 26
I don't know what to make of Child of Cooper, an upcoming PC game out of Shelter developer Might and Delight, and that's exciting. It's pitched as a "visual narrative that challenges aspects of normative video game storytel... read

You can fly off Pikes Peak in DiRT Rally


Ignore the signs
May 26
The new DiRT game is coming together piece by piece, and today's morsel has me reminiscing about a certain scenic climb in Colorado. Today's update for DiRT Rally is a big one, and centers on Pikes Peak (both its "full fat m... read

Evolve's free new Arena Mode forgoes the foreplay


You're out of a job, Trapper

As a hunter, my experience with Evolve often involved catching a glimpse of the beast, giving chase, and then losing its zigzagging trail ad infinitum until it came back all beefed up to wipe us out. If only there were some w... read

Unwinding: The Video Game
In Katamari Damacy, you roll up stuff. Small stuff, to start. Then cars, ships, buildings, mountains and, eventually, entire worlds. In Donut County, you slide an insatiable hole around to help it eat anything it can fit inside its maw. The more the hole consumes, the bigger it becomes. Where does it end up? How big can the hole grow? I'm not sure. But damn do I want to find out. read feature

CD Projekt RED keeping quiet about Cyberpunk 2077 for a couple years


It's the Witcher's time to shine
May 26
I last spoke about Cyberpunk 2077 over a year ago and noted that the game felt so far off, I couldn't even visualize it despite the cool, seedy, world-building promotional images and trailer. I'd say the project was announced... read

Doom 4 used to look nothing like Doom


So this is why it's taken so long
May 18
Ahead of its full reveal next month, Bethesda let out a couple seconds of footage for the new Doom. It looks cool to the extent that a snippet like this can look cool. Also, crucially, the footage is evocative of the series. ... read

I'd like Elite Beat Agents, please

In 2006, many of us were desperate for another 2D Mario game, and Nintendo finally came through with New Super Mario Bros. for the original DS. From what I remember, it was a good game. Perhaps not great, but certainly suffic... read

We'll soon be able to make tiny levels in Hotline Miami 2


The level editor is almost ready

One of the common complaints for Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number is its large levels. Were they too large? I didn't mind them. Sure, it felt bad to die from the last guy on the floor after pulling off a miraculous string of exe... read

Publishers think Swery's next game idea is 'perverted'


It sounds amazing
May 12
I'd be perfectly content with a conclusion to Dark Dreams Don't Die, but Hidetaka "Swery" Suehiro's idea for a new game sounds bizarre, original, and worth exploring. Here's how he described it in an interview with GameCentra... read
