One last Titan Souls trailer to prepare you for your journey

Let's face it: Nothing can adequately prepare you for the undertaking that Titan Souls presents. Every bit of pre-exposure is nothing more than wishful thinking. Because, when you come face to face with those towering m...

Development on Kickstarter-funded Midora paused

Review: Titan Souls photo
Review: Titan Souls
by Steven Hansen

I've always clamored for the all-boss-fights game. Shadow of the Colossus, an inescapable inspiration here, did it right and others have done it wrong, like Prince of Persia (2008), but I love the idea of removing fluff encounters. A JRPG that was all boss fights and no grinding could actually make for strategic battle. Strategy RPGs that don't allow for excessive grinding, like XCOM, are essentially "all boss fights."

And here, with Titan Souls, despite the Shadow of the Colossus influence and Souls-stolen title, I'm finding the closest analog to be Super Meat Boy. It'll grind you up.

Gabe Newell punches his way into indie game

News revealed on April Fools is always difficult to know how to treat. Do you waste time verifying it? Do you assume everything's a hoax regardless of proof? Do you just wait it out and see if the news still has updates in th...

Save me Mr. Tako! gives the damsel trope an octopus twist

Save me Mr. Tako! is a upcoming action platformer for Steam and Wii U from Christophe Galati. The game wears its The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening inspirations on its sleeve, but that doesn't bother me a bit. Other ...

Miss PlayStation Home? Check out the Tower Unite Kickstarter

Hot off the heels of the death knell of PlayStation Home, this Kickstarter popped up. It's probably a coincidence, considering the team has been working on the similar GMod Tower for the past five years, but it seems fortuit...

Watch Bunnylord f@%k s*#t up in Not A Hero

Roll7's stylish 2D arcade-style shooter Not A Hero has quickly become a frontrunner for my favorite gleefully homicidal title due for release this year. While it's quite a change of pace from the fantastic, ultra-t...

Where the hell did Little Devil Inside come from and why is it AMAZING? photo
Where the hell did Little Devil Inside come from and why is it AMAZING?
by Steven Hansen

I was immediately down with the art style, but it took me another minute and a half before Little Devil Inside wormed its way into my brain as something I really, really want to play. A beautiful, surreal little thing that reminds me of Tearaway, but more free form like the latter's third act.

I even bothered to vote for it on Steam Greenlight.

The fear here, of course, is how this all materializes into a game we will play and not a pretty movie we will watch. There's a bit of obvious action sword fighting, but sweeping camera angles and desert shoots outs? The Greenlight page makes some exciting, vague claims. I'd even be okay with segments feeling piecemeal, which could work with the surreal. I just want badly to feel manipulating a character through this virtual space. And I am hopeful.

I am Bread's latest trailer exceeds all expectations

Bossa Studios is realistic with what people will expect from a simulator about being a slice of bread. The developer goes so far as to dedicate the first few seconds of this trailer to what that game might look like. Turns o...

Colorful action RPG Izle planned for all current-gen systems

Jamestown+ on PS4 is the best colonial era shooter yet photo
Jamestown+ on PS4 is the best colonial era shooter yet
by Conrad Zimmerman

Jamestown was a wonderful shoot-em-up back when it first released on PC. With bullets blazing across the surface of a colonial Mars, it paired beautiful sprite art with epic music and cooperative local multiplayer to make something really special.

With the release of Jamestown+ on PlayStation 4, it's larger than ever.
