Alienation photo
Alienation

Housemarque's Alienation really snuck up on me

I wasn't able to become invested in Housemarque's Dead Nation like I was with the studio's other games, but its next "relentless" twin-stick shooter, Alienation, speaks to me. It's you and a squad of exosuit-wearing buddies clearing out th...

 
Aliens vs. Pinball photo
Aliens vs. Pinball

Zen Studios' latest is Aliens vs. Pinball

It has been some time since I've checked out any of Zen Studios' pinball games, but the Aliens franchise is enough of a draw to grab my attention. Aliens vs. Pinball, a three-table compilation, is coming to consoles, mobile, PC, and Mac th...

 
Star Fox Zero photo
Star Fox Zero

The modern Star Fox puppets are so much cuter than the originals

The Jim Henson Company's puppets were an honest-to-god highlight of Nintendo's E3 2015 showing, and it's about time someone dusted them off. Star Fox Zero is only a couple weeks away! I'm sure some of you will have opinions about the conte...

 
Chunks photo
Chunks

The studio behind Rust has a new Minecraft-style VR game

At first glance, Chunks just seems like a form of Minecraft designed with virtual reality in mind. You can create and destroy your overly-familiar-looking sandbox world as an all-seeing being in the sky, or mercilessly toss your little blo...

Dragon Quest Heroes II

Dragon Quest Heroes II gets an in-depth new trailer

We got a quick look at Dragon Quest Heroes II: The Twin Kings and the Prophecy's End a couple months back, but the newest trailer is much more comprehensive, giving each character new and old ample screen time and explaining all of the vari...

 
Parkitect photo
Parkitect

Parkitect nails that classic theme park sim vibe

To my ridiculous mind, Parkitect sounds like a parakeet mech action figure, but it's actually a theme park simulation game -- one that was cool enough to make it onto Patrick's big list of indie titles to look for in 2016. It's taking a ba...

Halo 5 update

Halo 5 is running a beta for Warzone Firefight next week

343 Industries is going to let Halo 5: Guardians players try out the upcoming eight-person cooperative mode Warzone Firefight early with a beta. It's set to run next Thursday, April 14 at 10:00am Pacific until that same time on Monday, Apri...

Outlast 2

Outlast 2 is teasing a reckoning

Last we heard, Red Barrels was aiming for a fall 2016 release for Outlast 2. Assuming that's still the case, and based on this unsettling backwards-audio teaser video for the horror game, I bet we'll start to see a lot more of it soon -- s...

 
Snake Pass photo
Snake Pass

This puzzle game has some slick-looking snake physics

I'm not overly fond of snakes, but I like the potential of a puzzle-platformer in which you play as one that slithers and wraps around objects semi-realistically. This is Snake Pass, a PC game from Sumo Digital that came out of its first i...

Lego Marvel's Avengers gets free Ant-Man DLC on PlayStation

As promised, Lego Marvel's Avengers owners on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 can download an "exclusive" free level and character pack based on Ant-Man starting today. Ant-Man can shrink and grow, as you'd hope, and the new Michael Pe&nti...

 
Doom photo
Doom

This cinematic take on Doom isn't nearly as bad as the last one

Ten years ago, I was swindled into going to the movie theater to watch Doom, a movie about a game that I grew up loving. It was abysmal. The bad taste is still in my mouth, even though I don't remember much about the film. All I recall is ...

 
Tokyo 42 photo
Tokyo 42

Tokyo 42 is a damn cool take on Syndicate and classic GTA

As a modern take on the original Grand Theft Auto and Syndicate with some lovely pops of color, Tokyo 42 makes a great first impression. It's an open-world isometric game about an up-and-coming assassin "embroiled in all sorts of cyber-she...

 
Double Kick Heroes photo
Double Kick Heroes

Double Kick Heroes' multi-eyed demon train is metal as heck

Taiko Drum Master is good, clean fun, but you know what it isn't? Metal. I mean, not just the material the game is made out of (plastic) or what actual taiko drums are built from (wood). But also the chipper J-pop just doesn't appeal to the...

 
Killer Instinct S3 photo
Killer Instinct S3

Hey, that's totally Gargos in this Killer Instinct Season 3 trailer

Tomorrow is Killer Instinct Season 3 day. To celebrate, I brought you this helpful launch trailer which recaps a lot of familiar ground at a quick pace and also throws down some notable dates. As far as new characters, expect to find Kim W...

 
ARC SYSTEM WORKS photo
ARC SYSTEM WORKS

Yep, Chase sure does look like a new Hotel Dusk

I embraced the aphorism "don't judge a book by its cover" as a child. After squandering the contents of my piggy bank on a dreadful fantasy novel that endeared itself to me with some captivating artwork, only to disappoint, I learned to be ...

 
Uncharted 4 photo
Uncharted 4

Nathan Drake doesn't understand what coin flips settle

As we are close to the end of Nathan Drake's story (six weeks to go!), this trailer shows Drake close to the end of his life. Or, at least, in a very tough predicament. Fatigued, likely injured, and aged enough to get away with a good "I'm...

Slain

Slain looks sufficiently intimidating in this launch trailer

After a round of delays, Wolf Brew Games is bringing its brutal hack-and-slash platformer Slain! to Steam tomorrow, March 24. The console versions are still coming, but not until later this year. The lighting, particle effects, and sometim...

Yakuza 0 is coming west in early 2017

Yakuza 0 is coming to western shores in early 2017, Sega announced today. The prequel is set in the 1980s and lets players see what Kiryu and Majima's lives were like as foot soldiers, long before they became the renowned yakuza we've seen ...

Hyper Light Drifter

Hyper Light Drifter will release on PC March 31

Backers shouldn't be surprised by this news; surveys went out to those who supported the initial Kickstarter campaign early last week. For everybody else, it may feel like Hyper Light Drifter was never going to see the light of day, but it ...

 
Deadlight photo
Deadlight

Deadlight returns with a director's cut this June

As much as it's a surprise to see Deep Silver and Abstraction bring back Deadlight of all things with an enhanced edition, I wouldn't mind it if we got more of these Xbox Live Arcade revivals. Folks who went through the last console genera...

Star Wars Battlefront adding Hutt Contracts and other free content next week

You've heard enough of me blabbering on about the Outer Rim DLC coming to Star Wars Battlefront (March 22 for season pass holders; April 5 for standalone purchasers), so I'll keep this brief. DICE is also adding free content to the game ne...

Capybara Games' Below drops in this summer

Below was one of my most anticipated games last year, but it was delayed into 2016 at the last moment. We won't have to wait for it much longer though, as Capy's new roguelike adventure will be coming this summer to Xbox One and PC. The new...

The Long Journey Home

The Long Journey Home makes a good first impression

Now this is intriguing. Daedalic Entertainment West is trying its hand at space adventuring with The Long Journey Home, an upcoming game inspired by Starflight and Star Control II that has players fighting the odds to get back to Earth aft...

Pharaoh Rebirth+

Pharaoh Rebirth+ looks like a hopping good time

I had never heard of Pharaoh Rebirth until today, but an updated version of this indie metroidvania set in Egypt will be releasing on Steam later this week. Pharaoh Rebirth+ comes from Japanese developer Krobon Station, known for its Mogura...

 
Quantum Break photo
Quantum Break

Quantum Break finds Nirvana but not peace

Although it won't launch for another three weeks, Quantum Break has a launch trailer. That's the weird dilution of terminology in the games industry today -- words used because they sound good and not because they're accurate. Really,...

Kalypso's new IP Urban Empire crosses SimCity and Civilization

Today is just a city-builder kind of day, eh? Earlier we looked at Devolver's slick new eco-friendly neighborhood builder Block'hood, and now we've got our eyes on a new IP from Kalypso Media (best known for the Tropico series). Urban Empir...

Nice 'Big Head' mode you got there, Unreal Tournament

There's a newly-updated version of the Unreal Tournament pre-alpha with a Big Head mutator and, jeez, how the heck do I keep forgetting this is in production and also freely playable? Lookin' good. Epic Games and community creators have bee...

Plants vs. Zombies Heroes is a mobile collectible card game

PopCap is taking a break from tower defense for a crack at collectible card gaming with its next Plants vs. Zombies title for iOS and Android, PvZ Heroes. The project "began over two years ago as a paper card game prototype" designed in cre...

Heroes of the Storm

So long Azmodan, hello AzmoDUNK

I love it when Blizzard is willing to get totally silly with its character designs, and judging from the reaction to the upcoming Legendary Azmodunk skin for Heroes of the Storm, I'm in good company. It's going on sale starting April 12, 20...

Block'hood brings calm thoughtfulness to building sims

It's always refreshing to see a video game take on important human issues that aren't just love or war. Most city-building simulators require careful planning, balancing different zones for maximum happiness under a budget. Block'hood looks...
