Not since Spelunky have I been so excited for a game featuring a pug.

The Night of the Rabbit is Daedelic's (Deponia series, Harvey's New Eyes) latest adventure epic and a welcome return to comedic fantasy after the underwhelming A New Beginning. The title comes to PC/Mac on May 28; no digital stores are announced but Daedelic titles usually make it to Steam, GOG, and GamersGate (among others).

The adventure follows a 12-year-old boy who finds himself on a quest to becoming a wizard, after a rabbit pulls him into a magical realm filled with talking animals and magic. So, it's kind of like Simon the Sorcerer meets Alice in Wonderland. Neat. The setup is a bit too innocuous for my taste, but knowing Daedelic, I have hope the game will be smarter and darker than that description suggests. Regardless, it's a gorgeous looking game and one of the few titles that adventure fans can look forward to this spring.

Then in the fall, we'll have the final Deponia release: Goodbye Deponia.

This is it: Final trailer for The Walking Dead Season 2

This will spoil season 2 for you up to this point. If you're not caught up (like me), don't watch. Otherwise, get excited about "No Way Back," the final episode in season 2 of The Walking Dead. Can it live up to the first season's strong finale? "No Way Back" hits PC/Mac and North American PS3/Vita on August 26; Xbox 360 and European PS3/Vita on August 27; iOS on August 28. more

With gamescom now behind us, you'd figure that CD Projekt RED would keep a tight lid on all things related to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. But apparently not, as it would seem. A week after the show, the developers decided to un...more

Check out new direct-feed Bloodborne gameplay

Last week, I got to go hands-on with Bloodborne. This visually evocative and bleak follow-up to Dark Souls II is a change of pace, but also something that feels and plays very much like the games of the past. While the change...more
