Wasteland 2 on Xbox One is a pleasant surprise

I wouldn't have thought a game like Wasteland 2 would leave its PC roots but if it works, it works. inXile Entertainment is self-publishing its deep, unforgiving turn-based RPG on Xbox One "soon." The trailer out of this wee...

The wonderful Double Fine Adventure documentary is going free photo
The wonderful Double Fine Adventure documentary is going free
by Jordan Devore

Folks who helped crowdfund Broken Age have gotten an up-close look at how Double Fine operates thanks to episodic videos chronicling development of the adventure game.

With 18 episodes down, 2 Player Productions has produced hours upon hours of compelling footage, and now it's being set free: the documentary series will be uploaded to YouTube piece by piece each Tuesday and Thursday, starting today. The first three episodes are up now.

I'm sure I've written this before, but the documentary was the main reason I backed Broken Age. It's phenomenal, insightful, humanzing, and funny. Whenever an email comes in with a new episode, I want to put down what I'm doing (usually work) and take an extra long "lunch break."

Mega64 does Dark Dreams Don't Die

The longer we go without a second season of Dark Dreams Don't Die, the more I realize how much I genuinely connected with Swery65's strange adventure game. What a tragedy it would be for this story to go unfinished. I need r...

3D Realms' Bombshell returns with a tiny bit more hair

Last May I broke the news about 3D Realms' upcoming Bombshell, and the typical '90s-esque trailer was decidedly light on gameplay but generous with clichéd teaser elements. Now there's a proper trailer out to dissect ...

Prepare to pay full price twice to unlock all of Battlefield Hardline's exclusive features

"Own More and Be More" is EA's dystopian-toned tagline for its unveiling of Battlefield Hardline Premium. In addition to the £44.00/$59.99 price for the base game (£59.99/$69.99 for the "deluxe" version), you can slap down an additional £44.00/$59.99 to unlock exclusive things that should have been included anyway.

Samus and Sagat: When Sagat met Samus photo
Samus and Sagat: When Sagat met Samus
by Jonathan Holmes

It's highly probable that an alien race, dwelling somewhere in outer space, has developed technology the likes of which we could only dream of, but lack something we consider mundane. For example, what if a race of magical bird-people from another planet had the ability to transport organic matter through thin air without any loss of quality, but had not yet discovered how to do the same thing with abstract content like "data"? How would they feel if the learned about the Internet? Better yet, how would they feel when they learned what most people use the Internet for? What would they think of terms like "social justice warrior," "lol," and "shitposting"? This special "Flashback to 19XX" episode of Samus and Sagat intends to answer those questions and more. 

This episode also marks the third time that Maddy Myers and I have gotten together to shoot Samus and Sagat, and things already feel different. It looks like we're through the "getting to know you" phase and already way off into the "drunk off each other's company so God knows what's going to happen next" phase. That definitely makes for a different kind of show. My acting in this episode is... really something. I'm not sure exactly what that something is, but I know it's true.

I also know it's true that making a collage of Maddy's various facial expressions is a lot of fun, and I hope to have the opportunity to do that again soon. We've got that collage in a wallpaper size right here, per the request of a few of my Twitter followers, so enjoy!

I fear for my fingers after seeing Amplitude in action

Harmonix is reviving Amplitude this summer and, if recent rumors hold up, Activison might bring back Guitar Hero. The lows of the rhythm genre are real low, but I'm ready for that high again. Going into this weekend's PAX Ea...
