Ironically, the Kickstarter for Hollow Knight looks solid

I have had my eye on Hollow Knight for a few days, but had not yet pulled the trigger on highlighting it. It is a pretty 2D action game (though the color palette is a bit muted for my taste) starring some sort of insect-pers...

Rodea: The Sky Soldier's trailer is lively to celebrate its revival

Originally developed (and finished) as a Wii and 3DS game, Rodea: The Sky Soldier was recently revived as a Wii U and 3DS project on pace for a 2015 release (only in Japan, as it stands). So now we have a new trail...

Want to see new footage of Batman: Arkham Knight? photo
Want to see new footage of Batman: Arkham Knight?
by Alessandro Fillari



After news of the delay back in September, the folks at WB Games and Rocksteady have kept all things Batman: Arkham Knight close to the vest. Thankfully, they figured we could use another appetizer after their showing at E3, and this new gameplay footage makes the wait even harder to bare.

In the video, we get to see the early portions of the game where Batman must rescue hostages from an Ace Chemicals factory. With his Batmobile in tow, he easily breaks in and gets to work on dispensing justice, but he soon learns that the Arkham Knight (voiced by Troy Baker, of course) is calling the shots and will prove to be a worthy adversary.

It's best to go into this without too much description. The gameplay for the Batmobile looks very impressive and I'm glad we finally got a Batman game that does the vehicle justice.

Jet Jaguar looks like a real pain in the ass in Godzilla

Am I going to have to import this Godzilla game for PlayStation 3, Bandai Namco? (Psst: That's your cue to announce its localization.) It's out in Japan on December 18, so ... Nothing? Waiting indefinitely for the game to po...

I want to run right past these gravekeeper hags in Bloodborne

Bloodborne isn't coming out until March. That means I have a solid few months to mentally prepare myself for these horrific things, described by Sony Japan Studio producer Masaaki Yamagiwa as "deformed gravekeeper hags." I do...

Review: Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric
by Chris Carter

As a character, Sonic gets a bad rap these days. No matter what is announced, I can practically hear the collective groaning from my desk. Like any popular franchise with consecutive releases, some of them are going to be good, some of them are bad.

Recent games like Generations and even Colors or Lost World were decent, and despite the bad apples, I'm generally hopeful good Sonic games still exist. Sadly, Sonic Boom is not one of them.

Bladestorm: Nightmare is a historical game with evil Joan of Arc and dragons

I didn't play 2007's Bladestorm: The Hundred Years' War, but I might play Bladestorm: Nightmare, an expanded version of the real-time tactics game for PS3, PS4, and Xbox One. The core remains the same -- you still side with ...

Holy summoned triceratops, Lost Ark looks fantastic

The video above is a little on the long side, but it is worth watching. It usually takes a lot to get me interested in anything fantasy-themed (more like Bored of the Rings, right?), but Lost Ark looks like it might be the e...

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor looks not so good on Xbox 360 and PS3

I completely forgot Monolith was working on last-generation ports of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. The studio delayed the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game to ... today. It's available for a full $59.99...

Review: LittleBigPlanet 3 photo
Review: LittleBigPlanet 3
by Chris Carter

Back in 2008, LittleBigPlanet was a staple in the Carter household for a good year. It was tough to put down as we earned a full 100% completion rate, and creating levels for each other was a joy. Floaty physics hate be damned, not every level was a Super Mario Bros. clone.

When the sequel hit though, it didn't have a whole lot that was new about it to entice us further, and it fell by the wayside. Similarly, LittleBigPlanet 3 doesn't shake things up from the core formula, but the sheer commitment to keeping the level-building platform intact after all these years is something special.

Eiji Aonuma reveals Twili Midna character for upcoming Hyrule Warriors DLC

Hyrule Warriors is still one of my favorite games of 2014, and the DLC so far has been a large part of why I keep playing it. We've already seen the "Master Quest" DLC, but now Nintendo's Eiji Aonuma has spilled the bean...

Hyrule Warriors' amiibo support is boring

Nintendo has explained which amiibo toys do what in Hyrule Warriors and, frankly, the game's support for the near-field communication figurines is rather dull. With Link (or Toon Link), players can get the Spinner weapon from...

Devolver Digital's new title Crossing Souls looks like an '80s cartoon

Part of me wishes that a game called Crossing Souls would be an Animal Crossing/Dark Souls crossover, but I am still pretty pleased with how Crossing Souls actually looks anyway. Will we ever get sick of the totally tubular ...

Far Cry 4's alternate ending only takes a half hour to access

Alternate endings are a fascinating way to put a non-canonical spin on the tales that we know and love. Sometimes it's a silly and light-hearted Pentagon piefight. Others are grim, like Dante taking a bullet to the chest on ...

Review: Far Cry 4 photo
Review: Far Cry 4
by Chris Carter

Far Cry 3 was one of my favorite games of 2012. It didn't stray too far from the normal sandbox conventions set before it, but gallivanting around beautiful island vistas and flying about with wingsuits was pretty damn fun.

For some that wasn't enough, though, and for those folks, Far Cry 4 won't be enough either. But for me, it's still pretty damn fun.
