Good lord, Samorost 3 is stunning

March 24, 2016. That's it: the honest-to-goodness release date for Samorost 3. It's hitting PC and Mac first, followed by Android and iOS versions "later this year." Someone hold me! It has been a long wait for fans of the 2003 original and...

Dead or Alive 5 Last Round is teaming up with Samurai Warriors

As much as I like the idea of that hunks-in-swimsuits story sitting at the top of the site's Dead or Alive feed for eternity, release date news and screenshots of another character and stage in Dead or Alive 5 Last Round are worth touching ...

Which of these Dragon Quest Heroes II characters should be on my team?

Ben was right. I don't know how anyone could play Dragon Quest Heroes and not come out the other side wanting to be best buds with Yangus. I'm hopeful he'll show up in the sequel, but for now, let's take a closer look at the recently confir...

The Walking Dead: Michonne Episode 1 screenshots, we got 'em

The latest series from Telltale's The Walking Dead line is here, in the form of Michonne: In too Deep. Surprise -- it's actually pretty good, even if the formula hasn't made any real strides in recent years, and is starting to get a bi...

Thank the baseball gods that baseball is back in a month and a half. I'm hooting and hollering like a mad man at these Warriors games, but basketball just takes too many nights off. I need several hours of warm deadening a night, every nigh...

Turns out Resident Evil's Jill Valentine makes a good Jill Valentine

Actress Julia Voth's likeness was used for Jill Valentine's character model in the 2002 Resident Evil GameCube remake, so it makes a lot of sense that Voth would decide to do a Jill Valentine cosplay photo shoot (random disclosure: turns ou...

3DS action-RPG Sadame coming to the West

See just how much the gameplay has changed in Valkyria: Azure Revolution

It's been clear from the get-go that Valkyria: Azure Revolution is a spinoff from the Valkyria Chronicles series that graced the PS3 and PSP. It is much more anime-y, there are overwrought swords and melee combat, as well as this smaller p...

Casual dragon board game Tsuro out on iOS now

Modern Where's Waldo-like Hidden Folks is mesmerizing

Certainly, the drawings shown here are works of art on their own, but Hidden Folks really comes alive in motion. It's a far cry from the last Where's Waldo game I remember playing, which featured a series of low-res pixel art static images ...

Here's a giant playable Famicom controller, because why not

You've got the right stuff, Detective Pikachu

I've been following Great Detective Pikachu for years, and what a journey it has been. There was a time when we just had a scant few seconds of nightmarish facial-capture footage to go on for the 3DS game and even then, in its infancy, I wa...

Harvest Moon-like Stardew Valley is out on February 26

Hot new Dark Souls III screens include eerie tiny king

Ah, screenshots. Some real classic, old-school video game journalism. More than anything I want to know what it is that compelled Bandai Namco to put out new Dark Souls III screens on a Wednesday night. Maybe something's fun happening in Ja...

Final Fantasy XV's January 30 update will detail stealth, magic

Space Hulk: Deathwing looks really cool

In recent years, a bunch of different games have drawn from Games Workshop properties. Some were good. Many weren't. I have long since learned to not get too invested pre-release. It's just easier that way. But there is one title I've kep...
