Dark Souls III update

From Software is making two of Dark Souls III's covenants less of a pain

From Software is rolling out an update for Dark Souls III today across all platforms and it's one I've been desperately awaiting. I couldn't scan the bullet points fast enough! It's here! Many of us have struggled to get the Blue Sentinels ...

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 sale

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 ...

There's now a 10-hour demo for Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2

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...

Fallout 4 is getting mods on consoles starting in May

Oh, right! Bethesda is planning to support mods in Fallout 4 on consoles. That'll happen sometime in May for Xbox One, and then in June for PlayStation 4, the studio has announced. PC players can mess around with the Creation Kit now while...

New Call of Duty

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...

 
Alienation review
Going into Alienation, I expected two things. First and foremost, I knew I was in for some frenetic arcade-style action. This is a twin-stick shooter from Housemarque, the studio behind Super Stardust HD and Resogun, so that'...   read

Gears of War 4's Ultimate Edition offers four-day early access

If you're eager for Gears of War 4 and don't mind parting with a hundred bucks, you can play the game four whole days before its official launch. One of the perks of the Ultimate Edition is early access on Friday, October 7, in addition to ...

Blackroom is a new FPS from Doom co-creators

Last week's tease was building up to Blackroom, a fast-paced, mod-friendly first-person shooter from id Software co-founders John Romero and Adrian Carmack. It's seeking $700,000 on Kickstarter, with additional funding support coming from ...

Of course there's another Five Nights at Freddy's

When Five Nights at Freddy's creator Scott Cawthon said that the last game would in fact be the "last" for the series, none of us believed him. And now, here we are! The developer's website has taken on an unsettling new look to tease what'...

Blizzard is throwing Heart of the Swarm in with Legacy of the Void

If you're looking to get back into StarCraft II on a whim, there's a decent promotion running right now. Folks who purchase the Legacy of the Void expansion (it's $39.99 regularly, and $59.99 for the deluxe edition) will get the earlier rel...

Nice Okami nod, Monster Hunter Generations

Monster Hunter has the cameo-appearance situation on lock. If we're talking about a character from a Nintendo- or Capcom-published series, chances are they've shown up in one form or another as a fun extra, whether it's just their trademar...

 
OH GOD photo
OH GOD

When the frame rate is so bad, it makes you ill

I hadn't really heard of Lichdom: Battlemage until our recent post about its new PlayStation 4 and Xbox One ports -- they're $49.99 a piece, or bizarrely enough you could just get the PC version for $1.99 in a bundle -- and now here it is ...

The Witcher 3's Blood & Wine DLC looks dreamy

I know people who are anticipating the next Witcher 3 expansion, Blood & Wine, more than just about anything else on the docket for this year (which is exactly how I am with Souls add-ons, so, I get it). Sometimes, it's easy to forget h...

The wonderful Rayman Origins is now playable on Xbox One

Can we take a moment to appreciate how well Rayman Origins turned out? After a slew of ports, 3D sequels, and spin-offs, Ubisoft finally worked its way back to the series' side-scrolling roots for a modern successor and the end result was t...

This is our last chance to get The Beatles: Rock Band's DLC songs

Harmonix has passed along word that come Thursday, May 5, the DLC tracks for The Beatles: Rock Band will no longer be available for purchase from the store. I sure hope you see this in time! "All You Need Is Love" "Because" "Her Majesty" "...

Push Me Pull You

The delightfully disturbing Push Me Pull You hits PS4 on May 3

Push Me Pull You is "a nice/horrible local multiplayer game where you and a friend share control of a big, wriggly body, and then play sports together." Clearly, the developers have had some time to nail down and refine their one-sentence...

The Elder Scrolls: Legends is rolling out its PC beta

That free-to-play strategy card game based on The Elder Scrolls? Still happening. Leading into PAX East this weekend, where The Elder Scrolls: Legends will be playable at booth #8021, Bethesda Softworks and Dire Wolf Digital have begun tak...

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...
