Cooking Mama looks odd in 3D

You know, I used to be a cooking mama myself. Those were the days.  Bon Appétit is actually the second Cooking Mama game to come to 3DS, but I somehow missed the last one, so I'm not used to seeing those...

Bat-Cow is an udder delight in LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham

Now here's a game that really does feel right at home at Comic-Con. TT Games has a new trailer for LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham prepared for the San Diego convention and, better yet, images featuring LEGO Bat-Cow, Batman of ...

Atlus didn't let failed crowd funding sink EarthBound-like Citizens of Earth

Citizens of Earth didn't meet its Kickstarter goals, but Persona developer Atlus swooped in and saved the day. Lead designer and Eden Industries co-founder Ryan Vandendyck, who you might have seen on Sup Holmes?, talked...

Mighty Tactical Shooter is a rad looking turn-based shmup

Usually when one thinks about shmups, precision motor skill and quick reaction are what come to mind. Mighty Tactical Shooter turns that completely on its head. Though precision movement and shot placement is still required,...

See Sheik, Princess Ruto, and Darunia in action in Hyrule Warriors

This newest batch of Hyrule Warriors screenshots is pretty insane, and shows off the newly announced Sheik, Darunia, and Princess Ruto characters in all their glory. Darunia seems to have a giant hammer, most likely pinning h...

Beat-'em-up Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds hits PS Vita next week

Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds was a decently enjoyable sidescrolling beat-'em-up released on Xbox Live Arcade early last year. It's now coming to PS Vita, where it will hopefully gain more visibility, on July 29, 2014. Goo...

This is Skylanders Trap Team's Dark Edition

$99 to get started with Skylanders Trap Team in style -- thank heavens I'm not a kid (or don't have children, for that matter) because I'd be all over this. Activision has opened pre-orders for the Trap Team Dark Edition, whi...

Risen 3's Demon Hunters faction sounds like the one to side with

First came the CGI trailer for Risen 3: Titan Lords, and now, screenshots. The one above? My favorite of the pack by a wide margin. Some of the others are oddly blinding. The game features three factions and one of them is ca...

Oh man, I need Halfway in my life right now

I already liked Chucklefish. The indie developer best known for making Starbound has gone on to act as a publisher for smaller teams with great ideas. The studio has helped to release Hopoo Games' Risk of Rain, and is p...

All of Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire's gym leaders have giant eyes now

The one thing that irked me about Pokemon X and Y was the 2D art, which seemed to shy away from the series' trademark look to a more homogenized anime blob style. Brawly's re-design has to b the worst. He wears those creepy toe shoes.  Compare for yourself below.

One week to go: More Dark Souls II DLC screens while we wait

The last batch of images for Crown of the Sunken King left me anticipating this Dark Souls II DLC which is, oh good, only a week off. There's more where that came from. Using an item acquired in the DLC, players will reach th...

Gigantic is a MOBA-like game I actually want to play

I don't play most MOBAs, but Gigantic has my attention. It's not one, to be clear, but there are similarities, especially with something like SMITE. Here, hero characters are leveling up to gain new abilities, but instead of...

Lead the most adorable mob riot with Anarcute

Everybody loves putting on an animal mask and wreaking destruction, right? Anarcute may not be as bloody as Hotline Miami, but it does tap into that same urge. It's that desire to dress up like a demented, googly-eyed Animal...

Here are all the Ar Nosurge images you'll ever need

Good lord, Koei Tecmo! Did you give us enough Ar Nosurge: Ode to an Unborn Star assets to share with the people? Show some restraint.  Ar Nosurge is a turn-based science fiction role-playing game from Gust, ma...

Okay, we get it: Samurai Warriors 4 is pretty

Our friends at Koei Tecmo shared some images of Samurai Warriors 4 today, and good lord are they pretty. In fact, I think I'm going to tape these to the ceiling above my bed so I can gaze upon their majesty while I fall asleep tonight. October can't come soon enough.
