Am I going to be in 1001 Spikes?

It's no secret that 1001 Spikes was one of my favorite games of 2014. It's also one of my most anticipated games of 2015. There's been an update in the works for 1001 Spikes since before the game was even put out on the marke...

You can put enemies to work in Bloodborne while farming Blood Echoes photo
You can put enemies to work in Bloodborne while farming Blood Echoes
by Jordan Devore

Depending on how far you are into Bloodborne, you've probably come to realize that this late-game area, accessible using the "Mergo's Loft: Middle" warp from the Hunter's Dream, is one of the best spots to quickly earn Blood Echoes (and also some Blood Vials while you're at it).

Those pigs, man. Horrifying as they look and sound, they pay the bills around here.

Previously, I took the safe approach -- one pig at a time. But while on a "lunch break" today, I accidentally figured out that it's even faster to take the first (isolated) pig down, and then run past the next two. They'll chase after you and get into a tussle with a nearby group of cloaked foes.

With luck, the two groups will nearly wipe each other out. Swoop in for any stragglers.

Ico showed Bloodborne's Hidetaka Miyazaki the 'possibilities of the medium'

Simon Parkin got a rare interview with From Software president, Demon's Souls and Bloodborne creator Hidetaka Miyazaki and it is fascinating stuff, charting Miyazaki's dramatic career change at age 29 (and equally dramatic 80...

Now batting, Herb Guy

I'm still playing MLB 15 The Show for our review. Instead of going to my PS3, uploading my Road to the Show shortstop to the Cloud, then importing it into my PS4, I stayed put (they're in different places) and made a new pit...

A Serious Sam voice pack for The Talos Principle is weird and awesome

The Talos Principle is a puzzler that requires deep and philosophical thought. Serious Sam is, well, it's pretty much the exact opposite. That's why it's so excellent that the latter will be doing voicework for the ...

You'd think Driveclub would want to stay away from the word 'buggy'

Driveclub will most likely be remembered for its promised, yet non-existent free PlayStation Plus version. The primary reason this never came to fruition is because Evolution Studios had to spend a significant amount of...

Bloodborne beaten in under 40 minutes

Oginam has beaten Bloodborne with an in-game time of 36 minutes and 59 seconds, currently the world record for an any percentage completion. As with most speedruns, multiple game-breaking glitches are used to achieve this sh...

Diablo III's Big Head Mode is too cute

Season 3 in Diablo III is almost upon us, but before we delve into something that serious, let's pull back a bit and use the adorable as a palate cleanser. (Who would've ever thought that "adorable" would be an adjectiv...

Review: Evolve: The Hunt Evolves Update photo
Review: Evolve: The Hunt Evolves Update
by Nic Rowen

More than a month ago Evolve came out to tepid reactions and muted fanfare. Today's release of the game's first major content update, delivering on the Hunting Season Pass and the pre-order Monster Expansion Pack, might have curious players wondering if it's worth a second look. I'm going to go right ahead and dash those hopes now.

While the four new playable hunters and the new monster to terrorize them with might represent some of the best ideas Turtle Rock Studios has had yet, they don't do anything to change the core problems of the game. Given how expensive this DLC feeding frenzy is, and how little you get for it, even hardcore fans will want to do some soul searching before handing over their wallets.

Geometry Wars 3 is now a whole lot bigger photo
Geometry Wars 3 is now a whole lot bigger
by Jordan Devore

Lucid Games' twin-stick shooter Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions is no more. With today's massive free update, which "nearly doubles" the game's content, it is now known as Dimensions Evolved.

To summarize, there's 40 new Adventure Mode levels, 20 Hardcore Mode levels that strip away drones and super abilities, some bonus levels, and a more fleshed out Classic Mode, among other things. I played one particularly cool level type, pictured above, in which your ship has no firepower but can drag along this trail of light that will destroy enemies who brush up against it.

New players will see Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved listed on digital marketplaces like Steam going forward -- the new levels and tweaks are now rolled into the base game -- while existing players can, again, play this stuff by updating their existing copy of Geometry Wars 3.

Good on you, Lucid and Sierra.

Bloodborne's game-breaking glitch patched

Last week, Chris told us about a game-breaking glitch in Bloodborne that made it so an item called the Lunarium Key, which is needed to reach a main-story boss, wouldn't appear. The issue has been fixed, so you can play co-op...

Dying Light enabling wacky ragdoll physics for April Fools' Day

For April Fools' Day tomorrow, Techland is bringing extra floaty physics to its open-world zombie-slaying game Dying Light, which has me wondering, why isn't that a permanent cheat code? This is the sort of thing, weird and ...

Review: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare: Ascendance photo
Review: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare: Ascendance
by Chris Carter

I've come to really enjoy Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's multiplayer months down the line. It's withstood the test of time, and although I was skeptical of Sledgehammer Games' first Duty outing, it has done a decent job at differentiating itself from Treyarch and Infinity Ward, and in most ways, it has already surpassed the latter.

The latest pack is Ascendance, which brings in a few extras outside of the typical four-map, one-zombie level delivery system. It's a better effort than Havoc thanks to the injection of some grappling hooks, but for $15, not every piece of the puzzle carries its load.

Ooh, April's PlayStation Plus lineup has Never Alone

April's free-game lineup for PlayStation Plus subscribers is full of titles I intend to play (or so I tell myself) but haven't gotten around to just yet. Never Alone, that wondrous folklore-inspired platformer about a young I...

Review: Paperbound photo
Review: Paperbound
by Chris Carter

I don't think I'll ever get tired of arena battle games. I can see myself as a grandfather one day, playing my favorite character in a future iteration of Super Smash Bros., reminiscing with my progeny about how great the old games were, and how overpowered Meta Knight was decades ago. It's those kinds of people who will enjoy Paperbound, the newest arena kid on the block.

While it doesn't have the panache of many other recent arena games like Samurai Gunn or TowerFall, it's still a decent way to spend an afternoon with friends gathered around the couch.
