Wow, that was fast

[Update: While we were initially told by a Telltale staff member that the EU release of episode two was being held until Friday, it now appears the digital EU release date is in fact today.] In an unexpected surprise mov...

The new Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir trailer will melt your eyeballs with how pretty it is

Prettier than Trine 2? Just maybe
Oct 23
// Joe Parlock
Just in case you missed it, Atlus announced Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir a few months ago. A full HD remake of its popular (and beautiful) action JRPG, Leifthrasir will also feature some tweaks to the combat system, and making s...

Void and Meddler is a grimy cyberpunk point-and-click

Form and Void and Meddler

// Mike Cosimano
Cyberpunk is often a particularly nasty genre. It's an evolution of noir, which is why you see conventions of noir regularly appear in cyberpunk stories. The morally ambiguous main character, the even more ambiguous roma...

Assassin's Creed Syndicate finally uses 'London Calling' in a trailer

Took long enough
Oct 21
// Brett Makedonski
"London Calling" is a very good song by The Clash, a very good punk band. Through its staccato'd guitars and less-than-frantic pace, it tells of social and political concern in England's capital. There's a feel-good veneer c...

Scribblenauts developer hopes for $500,000 on Fig for its next game

Anchors in the Drift
Oct 21
// Darren Nakamura
When I hear "5th Cell," my mind goes to the good times I spent with 2008's action-tower defense Lock's Quest or 2009's creative puzzle platformer Scribblenauts. Those were cute, inventive 2D games. I definitely don't think of...

Just like Max's life
Oct 19
// Brett Makedonski
On the eve of the release of Life is Strange's final installment, Max is frozen on the precipice of catastrophe. Truthfully, she has been since the cliffhanger ending to episode four way back in July. Thus far, Life is Stran...

The first full Ratchet and Clank trailer is not great

Another loss for game adaptations!
Oct 17
// Mike Cosimano
The first full trailer for the Ratchet and Clank movie has been released, and it's ridiculously generic. I get the "In a world..." joke, and I get the overwrought narrator, but this is the most kids movie-ass trailer I've see...

Prey for the Gods looks like a new Shadow of the Colossus

But will they be watching?
Oct 17
// Mike Cosimano
At first, Prey for the Gods looks very similar to a crafting-heavy survival game a la Rust filtered through some Never Alone. But that's only the first part of the trailer. Prey for the Gods looks beautifu...

Feast your eyes on sci-fi platformer-RPG Wanderer

Lo-fi Firefly
Oct 14
// Darren Nakamura
When it comes to pixel art, there is good stuff and there is bad stuff. Recently launched on Kickstarter, Wanderer falls easily into the former category. I just love the look of the pixelated characters on the more painterly ...

Nintendo labels new Fatal Frame trailer 'extremely spoopy'

Nintendo has taken a page out of Sega's book and proved that it is hip, cool, and totally down with the jive slang and dank memes of the internet today by labeling the new trailer for Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water "...

Geralt of Rivia has found himself opposite all kinds of opponents. Ghouls and beasts and insects and vampires -- the list goes on and on. So, when he's facing boring ol' humans, well, that's about as mundane as his life gets...

Well, that didn't take Ubisoft long, eh? Yesterday's tease via stream lasted only a day before the French publisher couldn't stand the excitement anymore and announced Far Cry Primal. Here's what we've learned since then. Far...

The first few moments of the Kickstarter trailer for Home Free bring up sad memories of the Futurama episode "Jurassic Bark," which I apparently cannot even read the Wikipedia entry for without getting misty-eyed. Dogs, man. ...

Here's the first look at Yakuza 6, and -- wait -- is that Beat Takeshi? Why yes, yes it is. The famed Japanese entertainer, who you might know the host of cult game show Takeshi's Castle, has a role in Sega's latest gangster ...

National Mushroom Day

Back when I first played Mushroom 11, more than a ago at PAX East 2014, it was a cool concept. Judging by the launch trailer below (and Brett's preview from earlier this year), Untame has really expanded on that concept, work...

Rise of the Tomb Raider trailer shows off hot grappling hook action

Also: tomb exploding

Lara Croft probably has some sort of death wish. Mountain climbing can be good exercise and recreation, but I don't think anybody in her right mind would swing from a grappling hook, launch 30 feet, then catch on a vertical r...

Capcom has a new Japanese trailer up for the recently announced Ace Attorney 6. Though I don't know what they're saying, it has all the desk-pounding and witness-badgering we have come to expect from the series. Also, check o...

You know, being “SPECIAL” isn't all about being some strong, gallant, tough guy of the apocalypse. Sometimes it just means having a good head on your shoulders, a keen eye, and some nimble fingers, as aptly demon...

The live-action spot for Destiny's The Taken King is okay, but Japan does it better. Just watch this masterpiece. There's overwhelming enthusiasm (borderline verbal assault) happening in a laundromat. There's yelling in...

Without a doubt, the best part of every year's Assassin's Creed game is the setting. It was certainly the case for Unity's Paris. Ubisoft generally does a great job of making these city sandboxes feel lived-in and livel...
