Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 trailer darkslides a powerline


Pop shove-it into your eyeholes
Jul 13
// Darren Nakamura
Yep, that looks like a Tony Hawk game all right. There are highly technical tricks on absurdly dangerous terrain. Grinding that increases speed instead of decreasing it. Just the right amount of jank in aerial maneuvers, as ...

Papers, Please released a couple years ago, but it struck a chord with many who played it. One of the most discussed elements was the decision-making process between doing what is right and doing what is necessary. First-per...

Jul 09
// Jordan Devore
After showing He-Man and G.I. Joe in Toy Soldiers: War Chest, Ubisoft noted that it would announce two more licensed armies for Signal Studio's latest tower defense/action game. We dreamed big, as you do. That was a mistake. ...

Well, duh! Ken is going to be in Street Fighter V


And maybe E. Honda
Jul 09
// Jordan Devore
I woke up to murmurs of Alex, Urien, R. Mika, and Karin Kanzuki possibly returning for Street Fighter V but Capcom had other plans for its San Diego Comic-Con character reveal today. Ken. It's Ken. Whatever you do, don't stare directly into his hair. Ken officially joins the Street Fighter 5 roster [Event Hubs]

Those trailers for The Peanuts Movie are pretty dang cute. It's neat to see the computer models and animation done in the style of the old cartoons. The movie will show up in theaters on November 6. In a move hearkening back...

Too bad Rayman Adventures is skipping consoles


There's free movement, at least
Jul 07
// Jordan Devore
Ubisoft has another Rayman in the works for smartphones and tablets. It's pretty! Almost as pretty as Rayman Legends which, despite being phenomenal, not enough folks played. This time, players will be able to move freely th...

The Darksiders II remaster doesn't look all that different


Reminder: This thing is $40
Jun 29
// Jordan Devore
Were we expecting the remaster of Darksiders II for current systems to look significantly better than the 2012 original (RIP THQ)? I was not. Crisper and smoother, sure, but that's about it. Here are some comparison screenshots that, at least to these less-than-stellar eyes, took some studying.

Ink is like Super Meat Boy if Meat Boy's blood were a rainbow


And if the environment were invisible
Jun 26
// Darren Nakamura
Today is a good day to celebrate rainbows, eh? I mean, every day is a good day to celebrate rainbows, and even if that weren't the case, I'd still highlight Super 91 Studios' Ink. It started as an entry to Ludum Dare 32, who...

My dad could beat up your dad
Jun 26
// Darren Nakamura
True story: my dad used to be quite the brawler. At a stocky 5'5" (165 cm), he was often underestimated. What he lacks in height and reach he makes up for in tenacity. What I'm trying to say is that I'm pretty sure my dad co...

I wouldn't blame you for avoiding these if you want to wait to experience them in the majesty that is the second Persona 5 trailer, from where these screens were ripped. Folks in Japan got their hands on Persona 4: Dancing All Night early along with the special bonus disc that contains a Persona 5 trailer, so be on the lookout for that soon.
