Natural Doctrine still looks ugly, but it might be fun

Natural Doctrine isn't exactly good-looking, but it's a strategy role-playing game with a protagonist named Jeff. I like strategy role-playing games. They're some of my favorites. And Jeffs are okay, I guess. It's not like I...

The fact Disgaea is wild and bizarre may come as no surprise to series veterans, but for any newcomers out there, this new trailer should leave you with little doubt. Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited debuts in North Ameri...

So it's more Atelier Shallie footage you want

Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea releases in Japan next week, and Gust has seen fit to provide another glimpse of the PS3 role-player prior to the July 17 launch. It looks and sounds just lovely. The music, in particular, tugs at my heartstrings. I'm a sucker for a soulful Celtic refrain. Now if we could only get confirmation of a western release. That would be just swell.

Here's how Danganronpa 2's murder mystery works

The Danganronpa series sure has an interesting concept behind it. A group of kids are held hostage by a murderous bear, who encourages his prisoners to murder one another on the sly. Should the culprit get caught, well,...

Heavenly Sword film looks a lot like Heavenly Sword

It's been nearly seven years since Heavenly Sword debuted on PlayStation 3. So, naturally, now is the perfect time to release animated film based on Ninja Theory's acclaimed action game. The direct-to-video picture...

Gearbox reveals Battleborn for PS4, Xbox One, PC photo
Gearbox reveals Battleborn for PS4, Xbox One, PC
by Kyle MacGregor

Battleborn is the next big game from Gearbox Software, and, much like the developer's Borderlands series, it's looking to put a unique spin on the first-person shooter.

Billed a "hero-shooter" by Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford, the title infuses MOBA elements into its narrative-driven co-op and competitive multiplayer in place of Borderlands' hallmark loot-heavy RPG flare. The story, penned by former Destructoid editor Aaron Linde, is set in the distant future in a "science fantasy" universe on the brink of destruction.

Battleborn is slated to release sometime during Take-Two Interactive’s upcoming fiscal year ending March 31, 2016 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Kill your friends with ghost traps: Crawl coming to Early Access photo
Kill your friends with ghost traps: Crawl coming to Early Access
by Steven Hansen

Also, the Coven is going to turn you into a toad.

I have been super excited for Crawl since last year. It's a four player dungeon crawler. The twist in Crawl is that your friends play as the assorted monsters and traps in the game, and killing the hero lets you take their place. 

I'm pretty good about avoiding Early Access games until their final release, but I may end up testing Crawl out on July 17.
