Armature announces Dead Star
Oct 05
// Jordan Devore
Dead Star is a top-down space combat game in development at Armature, the Austin studio formed by some key folks who worked on Metroid Prime 3: Corruption under Retro Studios. It has ten-on-ten multiplayer with dogfights, out...

Skullgirls dev's metroidvania RPG Indivisible is looking pretty dang good

Up on Indiegogo, with a playable demo
Oct 05
// Darren Nakamura
Back in July we got a barebones announcement that Skullgirls developer Lab Zero Games has been working on a role-playing game called Indivisible and that it would begin a crowdfunding campaign for it late in September. It's ...

Ubisoft has a mystery stream going to tease its next project

'Survival is timeless'
Oct 05
// Brett Makedonski
[Update: Looks like we have our answer and it's Far Cry Primal.] What's Ubisoft working on next? Our only indication is this quick loop of a hieroglyph depicting a man holding a spear and bow. It's likely one of those fancy ...

Pollen is a sci-fi thriller without jump scares

VR optional but recommended
Oct 05
// Jordan Devore
Another game for the "best played in virtual reality" list. Pollen, as you might recall from that time Brett ran a story about bees, is a sci-fi exploration game set on the largest moon of Saturn. You're on a research station, pulling and prodding things to solve puzzles, take in the environmental storytelling, and find out "what hides under Titan's surface."

Mario Maker player subverts guilt-trip level to save every Yoshi

Take that, Ross
Oct 05
// Jordan Devore
Some level creators are using Super Mario Maker as a platform to make us feel guilty. They're dreaming up courses that put Yoshi in harm's way and have it so Mario can't reach the end without sacrificing his faithful companio...

The cars in Rocket League handle differently

See how they compare
Oct 02

I've seen ridiculous feats in Rocket League that I'll never be able to compete against, but every little tip helps. YouTube user Reelly Plays has begun testing some aspects of the game that you might not have picked up on -- ...

Before Conker's Bad Fur Day, there was Twelve Tales

Rare reminisces about the N64 days
Oct 02
// Jordan Devore
Rare has shared another behind-the-scenes video about Conker and this one sure brings me back. Conker's Quest, as it was originally called before undergoing a name change to Twelve Tales: Conker 64, debuted at E3 in 1997. It ...

Can I just...have Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir now?

I had the chance to check out Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir at TGS recently, and man was it fantastic. The art style absolutely holds up, and the framerate issues of the original (one of the only real problems) were complete...

The Witcher 3's Heart of Stone DLC is coming on October 13, and will have 10 hours of content in tow. But before it drops, you can listen to the main theme above from composer Marcin Przybyłowicz. Wild Hu...
Yomawari photo

Man, I really hope Yomawari gets localized

Creepy cute PS Vita game
Oct 02
// Chris Carter
Every time I see Yomawari (Night Watch), it's looking better and better. The game is an isometric horror title, and is backed by a wonderful soundtrack and an adorable story involving a young girl who is looking for her dog and sister in Japan. The atmosphere looks incredible, and the Vita could use more original games like this. Hopefully NIS will bring it over eventually.

Oct 01

Japanese TV show GameCenter CX collaborated with Nintendo on a funny little costume in Super Mario Maker, but that's not all! There's an episode themed around the game on YouTube. Host Shinya Arino spent half an hour playing ...

Good defense, guys

He said sarcastically
Oct 01
// Brett Makedonski
Old, stodgy, wrong sports broadcasters like to yell that defense wins championships. If that's true, then this team is the 2008 Detroit Lions of Rocket League (for you non-sports folk, that means they're god-fucking-awful, which you could probably tell just from watching the GIF).

Soar the island-filled skies of Worlds Adrift

Oct 01 // Jordan Devore
[embed]313407:60583:0[/embed] There's Spider-Man-style swinging at 7:15. Ship construction, which is done by hand, starts at 10:50. Williams demonstrates flying at 19:20 and even alone, without the threat of other players, it looks terrifying. Then again, he clearly knows how to grapple and isn't afraid of plummeting to his death. Lastly, you can take photos (including selfies!) and frame them. See that at 23:20.
Worlds Adrift photo
But watch out for pirates
Bossa Studios (Surgeon Simulator, I am Bread) is making an open-world MMO about building airships, flying them to floating islands, and screwing over others (probably). You interested? The developers were in town, so we sent Rey to take a look at that game, Worlds Adrift, and he put together this in-depth video with narration provided by designer Luke Williams.

NHL 16 pegs Anaheim Ducks as Stanley Cup champs

Not worth winning if you can't win big
Oct 01
// Brett Makedonski
It's not exactly a leap of faith, but NHL 16 has used its magical season simulating video game powers to predict that the Anaheim Ducks will win the 2016 Stanley Cup. By most accounts, Anaheim enters the season as the W...

Capcom's really picking its spots for Street Fighter V character announcements. Zangief has been officially revealed for the game at IgroMir Expo 2015 in, you guessed it, Russia. The man who may be more cyclone than mus...

The first few moments of the Kickstarter trailer for Home Free bring up sad memories of the Futurama episode "Jurassic Bark," which I apparently cannot even read the Wikipedia entry for without getting misty-eyed. Dogs, man. ...

Hope you enjoy this Black Ops III story trailer, last-gen players

Because it's all you're getting
Sep 30
// Jordan Devore
Call of Duty: Black Ops III will have multiplayer and the usual star-studded Zombies mode on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, but no campaign -- it's too "ambitious" for last-generation hardware. If you want Christopher Meloni (and who doesn't?), you'll need to play on PC, Xbox One, or PS4.

Fallout 4's latest trait video is for the silver-tongued devils

Continuing along out Sesame Street-themed letter bent, "C" is for "Charisma" in the latest Fallout 4 S.P.E.C.I.A.L. video. That might mean persuading others to do your bidding, or simply persuading them to not stick a f...

Unlocking on Steam shortly
Sep 30

Armikrog has had a rather rough past month, dealing with a few small delays before its original launch date. But now the last-minute bugs have been fixed, and it's set to unlock on Steam shortly. Caitlin is working on our review as we speak. It's only out for PC right now, but PS4 and Wii U versions are also planned for a later date. Armikrog [Steam]

Chris enjoyed that last Dragon Quest Heroes trailer. I like this one even better. It's more comprehensive and the narration by King Doric is just so damn enthusiastic. The video covers the cast, monster summoning, shopping, t...

Back when I first played Mushroom 11, more than a ago at PAX East 2014, it was a cool concept. Judging by the launch trailer below (and Brett's preview from earlier this year), Untame has really expanded on that concept, work...
