Rayman Origins out today for PC via digital distribution

I'm hopeful that Rayman Origins will have a long-tail success; it would be tragic for a game this aesthetically pleasing to go unplayed by the masses. As of today, you can grab it on Steam or directly from Ubisoft for an affo...more

Late last night, a demo for Rayman Origins mysteriously hit Steam. If you haven't played it yet, either because you don't own any consoles or you just plain missed it, go do yourself a favor and download the demo now. Rayman ...more

Review: Rayman Origins (Vita)

Once again, Rayman Origins is a 2D side-scrolling dream come, except this time it's on a smaller screen. One of the best and most beautiful games of last year returns on the PlayStation Vita for launch, and I had absolutely no problem playing it one more time for this review. more

PSA: Rayman Origins is out in stores today!

Usually we don't do these kind of "PSA" posts for retail games, but with Ubisoft sending the poor game out the same week as Saints Row: The Third, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Halo: Anniversary and even its own Assassin's Cr...more

You should be paying attention to Rayman Origins

Rayman Origins is out next week. Sadly, yet understandably, there isn't a noticeable buzz surrounding the title -- certainly not at the level of productivity-enders Modern Warfare 3 and Skyrim. It is a full-priced 2D platfor...more

Shovel Knight looks great in 16-bit, Aegis Defenders just looks great

Oh my goooddd. How did I miss this until now? It's like a Nausicaa game. Thank you sir Shovel Knight for making a cross over appearance (above) in Aegis Defenders, which is how it came to my attention.  The Kickstarter already passed its initial funding goal and its PS4 stretch goal. Local co-op and a Wii U version are up next. Here's hoping. This looks amazing. more

Stick it to the Man is on Xbox One as of today

Stick it to the Man managed to do something that rarely any other game on the market does these days -- make me laugh. Billed as a "comedic platformer," Stick it is now available on the Xbox One for $9.99. Develope...more

Review: Mighty Gunvolt

Inti Creates is just full of surprises. First, we had the announcement of a brand new Mega Man-like project that absolutely exploded on Kickstarter. Then we got word that Azure Striker Gunvolt was in production, and was ...more
