Unravel is an adorable new puzzle platformer


Yarn but not Yoshi
Jun 15
// Darren Nakamura
At EA's press conference earlier today, the big publisher unveiled something that felt a little out of character, but in all the best ways. Unravel is a puzzle platformer that makes use of the craft item look Nintendo has be...

Rise from your grave!
The leaks killed the surprise, but I'm still into it -- Dark Souls III is coming early next year to PC, PS, and Xbox One. "Hidetaka Miyazaki and his team" are on the project, according to Bandai Namco. A pre-rendered video p...

Wow, Minecraft on Microsoft's HoloLens looks hot


The power of Microsoft money
Jun 15
// Darren Nakamura
We have seen snippets of Minecraft on HoloLens in the past, but at Microsoft's E3 press conference today, a couple of presenters showed off something that had us putting up the respect knuckles. With a special camera showing ...

Fallout 4 screenshots fresh from the Bethesda showcase


Looking good, Boston
Jun 15
// Darren Nakamura
Bethesda spent a lot of time on Fallout at its E3 showcase. Though the video presentation is probably the way to go for those hungry for Fallout 4 information, fans short on time might prefer a quick browsing of screens. Thou...

[Update: Bethesda's Pete Hines mentioned on his Twitter that "we will have info later about [an] Android version."] At Bethesda's E3 press conference, the big draw was Fallout 4, but nestled in the middle of the Fallout prese...

Arkane Studios announced Dishonored 2 on Bethesda's E3 2015 stream, featuring the option to play as a female protagonist named Emily Kaldwin. In the trailer Emily takes on four-armed robots, and she does some cool shadow pow...

// Darren Nakamura
In life, sometimes it's best to celebrate the little victories. For instance, the forces of the universe have prevented me from attending E3 this year, but as a consolation, Telltale is releasing Tales from the Borderlands Ep...

Sure, big name Kickstarters like Bloodstained and Yooka-Laylee are in the spotlight right now with their campaigns winding down having made millions of dollars. But don't forget that there are others out there looking for th...

Toy Soldiers: War Chest

It's He-Man vs. G.I. Joe in the new Toy Soldiers


Holy shit!
Jun 10
// Jordan Devore
Lot of smaller but still rather cool announcements this week ahead of E3. Toy Soldiers: War Chest is fleshing out its roster of original toy armies with the likes of He-Man and G.I. Joe. This series, if you've never played, ...

PS4 could use more games like Ratchet & Clank


This sure looks nice
Jun 10
// Jordan Devore
"Play the game based on the movie based on the game." Next spring, Ratchet and Clank return for, well, Ratchet & Clank. Insomniac Games is working on a re-imagining of the original PlayStation 2 title, "revised to tie in...

New Master of Orion

Wargaming is bringing back Master of Orion


Hmm
Jun 09
// Jordan Devore
The original Master of Orion was before my time but, like Myst, the sci-fi strategy title was one of my uncle's favorites. He'd leave his laptop unattended and I'd screw around with it, failing miserably to explore, expand, ...

Heroes of the Storm goes Diablo-crazy with 'Eternal Conflict' event


New hero, level, mount, and skins
Jun 07
// Chris Carter
[Update: Blizzard has released a piece of key art for the event, and it looks like it teases a number of different skins, and even a potential new character, the skeleton king Leoric. Like The Butcher, he was also featured in...
Disney Infinity Star Wars photo
Check and check
If you're making a Star Wars game with pilotable ships, I'm going to want to zip around Hoth in a snowspeeder and tie knots around some AT-ATs. I'll also want to shoot down a bunch of TIE Fighters on my path to destroy the De...

Okay, Total War: Warhammer looks awesome


Don't let us down
Jun 04
// Jordan Devore
Some folks were invited to see Total War: Warhammer. We were not. But thanks to the power of the Internet, we can all share in the absurd spectacle. I sincerely hope Creative Assembly works its magic here. The premise alone is the stuff of dreams. I am curious what the DLC situation will be like for this game. "Extensive," probably.

Star Wars: Uprising picks up right after Return of the Jedi


It's an action-RPG for mobile, though
Jun 04
// Jordan Devore
Yeah, I know. Mobile. But even if you have zero interest in the game, at least watch this trailer. Star Wars: Uprising fills story gaps between Return of the Jedi and December's The Force Awakens. Rumors of the Emperor's dea...

We Happy Few grabbed us with its announcement trailer, but it wasn't until PAX East this year that I got to run through an early build. I had to literally run, because the crazed inhabitants of Wellington Wells kept chasing ...

Activision confirms Skylanders SuperChargers, coming this year


Vehicles-to-life
Jun 03

Skylanders pioneered the recent toys-to-life market, and from there, moved on to giant figures, then to swappable toys, and eventually, to "traps." Now Activision is taking the series to vehicles with SuperChargers. Evidentl...

This solid-gold jet is a bit much, GTA Online


Put a target on your back why don't you
Jun 01
// Jordan Devore
Still messing around in Grand Theft Auto Online? Rockstar is adding some opulent vehicles next week under the "Ill-Gotten Gains Part 1" banner including, haha, a solid-gold helicopter and jet. Someone should get Robin Leach to narrate.

2K Games has just sent word that XCOM 2 is in development, and will be a sequel to XCOM: Enemy Unknown, the recently beloved reboot of the series. Firaxis Games is once again handling the project, which is great news fo...

I love everything about this goofy Dragon's Dogma Online image


Sweep the leg
May 29
// Jordan Devore
So, Dragon's Dogma Online isn't ideal for a number of reasons -- it's supported by microtransactions and isn't even planned for release in the West, for starters -- but it is more Dragon's Dogma, and damn if it doesn't at least look cool. Especially the creature designs. After perusing the game's site, I saw this devilish beauty. Zulu, they call him. Zoom in. His expression is priceless.

Painted with blood

// Darren Nakamura
Another episode of Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series, another batch of screenshots I took while playing through for review. There weren't any huge twists this episode, so I'm not afraid of spoiling too much, but as alwa...

Some time ago, Kidrobot announced a line of 3-inch Mega Man toys. They were to be sold in blind boxes for $11.99 each, with a 5-pack for $59.99. Then...we didn't really hear anything for over a year. Now, thanks to Vinyl Puls...

[Update: Now we have a trailer and screenshots! Disregard snark at the bottom here.] In its ongoing celebration of Pac-Man's 35th anniversary, Bandai Namco has said that Pac-Man will show up in unexpected places. The first c...

10000000 sequel You Must Build a Boat out on June 4


'10000001' too on-the-nose
May 19
// Darren Nakamura
You Must Build a Boat has been in the works for a while. Originally planned as a free update to hit match-three puzzle game 10000000, it eventually ballooned into something big enough to be its own thing. That was more than ...

Match three in the Land of Ooo

Adventure Time Puzzle Quest. That really says all it needs to about what to expect. It's going to be the addictive match-three puzzling that we have been doing for years, with the familiar faces of Jake the dog and Finn the h...

Civilization: Beyond Earth getting an expansion this fall


Settle the oceans in Rising Tide
May 18
// Darren Nakamura
Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth came out last year, and although I loved it, a lot of the series' hardcore fans picked it apart as being less complex than past entries. Though it doesn't nearly address every complaint,...

Books, aye, remember them?!
As we all know, Geralt of Rivia is back on fine video game form with The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt, but lesser known is his return to print with Sword of Destiny. First published in 1992, Andrzej Sapkowski's second short story...

Cute little microcosm
May 14
// Jordan Devore
After watching this debut trailer for Evoland 2: A Slight Case of Spacetime Continuum Disorder, I regret missing the first game. The basic concept of an adventure that evolves from 2D to 3D and spans multiple genres is the s...

Newly announced Kingdom Hearts Unchained X[chi] is adorable as heck


Japan always gets the best things
May 13
// Alissa McAloon
Usually I wouldn't make this big of a deal over something that is (so far) only releasing in Japan, but Kingdom Hearts Unchained X[chi] is just too cute to pass up. The iOS and Android game is based off a Japan-only...

We'll soon be able to make tiny levels in Hotline Miami 2


The level editor is almost ready
May 12
// Jordan Devore
One of the common complaints for Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number is its large levels. Were they too large? I didn't mind them. Sure, it felt bad to die from the last guy on the floor after pulling off a miraculous string of exe...
