Persona 5
After days of hype and months of waiting in general, Atlus held a Persona 5 livestream this morning. It involved a lot of teasing -- like, hours of teasing to be exact, but we did end up getting a worthwhile new trailer ...   read

Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens looks better than expected

Well, hey, it's nice to have footage to put to Brett's words about Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Having seen the movie three times now (once in a theater in an eye-melting front-row seat; again in a different theater at a proper viewi...

Infinity Ward isn't bringing Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare to PS3, Xbox 360

After Call of Duty: Black Ops III dropped its campaign mode in order to squeak by on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that the next entry, November's Infinite Warfare, is skipping the languishing last-gen...

Here's some new Dragon Quest Heroes II footage and screenshots

Dragon Quest Heroes was pretty great. Even if it was my first Dragon Quest game, and one of my first Warriors games, I still had a grand ol’ time busting hordes of monsters and have been interested in seeing more of the upcoming sequ...

Tropico 5 headlines May's free games on PlayStation Plus

Yesterday, Jordan told us to temper our expectations for Xbox's Games with Gold in May. That bar-lowering seems equally necessary when looking at PlayStation's gratis offerings for the month. Sure, there will be something for some people, b...

 
King's Quest review
Despite its lengthy release schedule (the first episode dropped last July!), King's Quest has wormed its way into my heart. Sure, the second chapter was a slight drop-off from the first, but it still managed to maintain the p...   read

PSN's Golden Week sale has deals on Gravity Rush, Yakuza 5, and Digimon

Tales from the Borderlands now available on disc

I can't stress enough how good Tales from the Borderlands is. It made the number one spot on my personal game of the year list for 2015. It's probably the most densely comedic Borderlands game and one of the most sharply written Telltale ga...

 
Alien vs. Pinball review
Today is Alien Day, the latest in a series of dubious holidays pushed by marketing departments. Unlike Back to the Future Day which has a very obvious temporal tie-in, the date for Alien Day come...   read

Michonne
To say that Telltale's The Walking Dead: Michonne has been uneven would be an understatement. Although the lead performance was enough to draw me in the first time, the second episode dragged, and struggled to introduce any compelling new characters. Much like the in-game narrative, the burden was left on the shoulders of Michonne. That couldn't be more true of the finale.   read
