With the rights back in place, Dementium is coming to the 3DS

The Dementium series pushed the Nintendo DS to its limits, and reaped the rewards from a legion of fans that enjoyed the series for years. It's probably Renegade Kid's most known project, and now a new generation will be...

Don't Starve Together works just as well as you'd expect it to photo
Don't Starve Together works just as well as you'd expect it to
by Chris Carter

Starting this week, you can buy into the Don't Starve Together beta if you don't have access already. It's $5 if you own the base game, and it comes with a gift code for the core package as well as two Together codes.

So how does it work? First you'll have to sign up for developer Klei's proprietary service with your email and date of birth. The process was kind of buggy, as the in-Steam browser constantly errored out and didn't display the right screen. I had to restart Steam twice, and then wait 15 minutes for an "instant" verification link.

Thankfully, everything was smooth sailing after that.

Riptor is looking pretty killer in her new Killer Instinct trailer

Although we had confirmation of Riptor's existence in Killer Instinct already, now we have a better look at her moveset and backstory. Evidently she was created as a result of a competing project with Fulgore and Cinder...

The Stein's Gate game is coming to Vita, PS3 in 2015

I haven't gotten around to the Steins;Gate game yet, but I absolutely loved the show from start to finish. Some people say it starts off a little slowly and ramps from there, but I loved the banter and buildup just as mu...

What do you think of raiding in Destiny?

If you follow Destiny but don't play it, you've probably heard this line a lot: "the raids are the best part." But that's basically all you hear, and then you move on because of all the other negative word of mouth. So I...

Training amiibo as presents? What a neat idea

I was talking to a friend of mine recently about amiibo, and some of the ideas he came up with on how to use them are pretty interesting. Recently we've been training our own fighters with our best moves, and then pitting the...

Review: Destiny: The Dark Below photo
Review: Destiny: The Dark Below
by Chris Carter

Having basically played the new Destiny expansion The Dark Below nonstop since launch, I've experienced everything it has to offer. That in itself is an issue, because although I have played more than the average person, to exhaust the content this early isn't a good sign.

While Destiny feels just as great as ever, perhaps even more-so due to the design of a few mechanics herein, I can't help but feel underwhelmed just like I did back in September.

Bungie: Keep Destiny's Vault of Glass relevant, and fix the rewards

The best part of the core Destiny experience at launch was the Vault of Glass raid. It completely blew away everything else the game had to offer, and was on an entirely different level mechanically. Every encounter was ...
