I don't know that I fully grasp the appeal of premium skins in Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition, but I was never one to buy crap for my Avatar, either, so I'm clearly not the intended audience. If I were, however, these characters... more
Late Sunday night, Telltale Games posted a picture on their Facebook page with the caption "Keep that hair short." According to the text on the image, something to do with The Walking Dead Season Two will happen on ... more
Good news, everyone! The Mighty No. 9 Kickstarter received a sudden boost in its donation rate. We've cleared $2.75 million, which means we are getting online co-op! Yay!
Now that we'll be able to play as Beck's partner Call,... more
We all owe WayForward an apology. We haven't been paying the Kickstarter for Shantae: Half-Genie Hero much attention because Mighty No. 9 gobbled up everyone's focus. I knew weeks in advance that WayForward was planning to la... more

... is what I'd like to say, but it's actually the Himalayas. In addition to the new trailer above, there are some screens and enemy art below. Don't get in... more
VectorCell's reimagining of the classic sci-fi platform game Flashback is coming along. With the tweaks being made to modernize the title, this could end up being a disappointment for long-time fans who have the original ver... more
Remember Obscure? It was that fun looking four-player side-scrolling beat-em-up/shooter. Well it's undergone a name change, and you can now refer to it as Final Exam. The name was changed largely due to how fans kept thinking... more
A familiar site at every E3 for the past few years has been a giant tank sitting just outside West Hall of the LA Convention Center. Wargaming has been constantly promoting its free-to-play tank shooter World of Tanks, and th... more
Other platformers have gone the random generation route, but not to the extent that Cloudberry Kingdom has. In fact, it's taken developer Pwnee Studios over four years to perfect the engine and game logic. After seeing it in ... more
DuckTales was always one of those games that I never thought in a million years would get a re-release, much less a remake with hand-drawn art and fully voiced dialog performed by the original cartoon's voice actors. Somehow,... more
Takedown: Red Sabre should make tactical first-person shooter players happy. I'm not one, I've come to realize, but I gave it my best during a demonstration of this squad-based PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 game from S... more
Let's call Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion a false start. It tried to recapture the spirit of Castle of Illusion on SEGA Genesis, but it sadly fell short. The actual remake, on the other hand, is looking like the real d... more
I'll say this about Spiders, the studio behind titles like Mars: War Logs and Of Orcs and Men -- its projects sure do a good job of grabbing your attention early on, even if the end result doesn't tend to match lofty ambition... more
At first glance, Capcom's E3 2013 lineup feels lighter than expected. There's the usual Lost Planet 3, DuckTales: Remastered, Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara, and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, as expected. Yes, ... more
The insane 2D MOBA Awesomenauts has been trucking along for a full year, continuously being updated with new characters, maps, and other goodies -- on Windows and Mac, of course. Developer Ronimo Games is not through with th... more

I caught wind of Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons by way of a short teaser trailer a while back (you can find it after the jump) and was digging the art style, but put it out of mind. As its spring release approaches, however, ... more
I want Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon all over my body. Everything behind the game is amazing, even the box art. Artist James White is the man responsible for artwork you've seen, and he's shared some of the various concepts he crea... more
Today, Capcom lifted the curtain on the two extra games for Capcom Arcade Cabinet, which will be free for folks who own the 15-game compilation. The titles are 1943 Kai, the laser-filled update of shoot-'em-up 1943,... more
Now that Magrunner: Dark Pulse has a full website, developer 3 AM Games has unleashed a handful of new screenshots. The one above immediately caught me eye; for the sake of context, this is a first-person puzzler set in "a&nb... more

First drop whatever you're doing and watch this trailer before reading anything else.
Okay, so yeah. Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is just ridiculous. I don't want to get into too much specifics as there's gameplay video out there... more
How many of you are old enough to remember Flashback? The Prince of Persia-like game was originally released for the Amiga, then later brought to the PC, Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis, and several other platforms. Evidently t... more
These days, helicopters have become something of a nuisance. We've surely all fought one head on -- or thirty, depending on whether or not you've played 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand. I don't believe I'm alone in thinking that ... more
Last month, the Brazilian ratings board DJCTQ revealed that the SEGA Genesis platforming classic Castle of Illusion was coming to PS3, Vita, 360, and Wii U. Now, XBLA digital box art has appeared, indicating that a formal ann... more
What was once a thriving area of small and unique downloadables titles has slowly become a void. It just seems Microsoft doesn't care to support what made Xbox Live Arcade so special in the first place. Max: The Curse of Br... more

A couple weeks ago, Hamza posted some pictures of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, Activision and Red Fly Studio's upcoming venture. Naturally, he was curious why they were so hideous looking. They lo... more
I can't say I've ever bothered to play Max and the Magic Marker, but with a completely different art style, this Xbox Live Arcade-exclusive spiritual successor looks hard to resist. If you're into games like Trine, you shoul... more
While that last trailer was a bit of a letdown, as promised, this latest video makes up for it by showing what Call of Juarez: Gunslinger looks like when actually being played. Now, I'm still not entirely sure what all gamep... more
PAYDAY: The Heist always reminds me of Michael Mann’s brilliant, taut tale of thievery, Heat. The opening of The Dark Knight reminded me of Heat, too; a more somber Point Break, given the creepy clown masks. And now PA... more
Ubisoft has been slow to roll out media for Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, and that's not changing much from the looks of it. This new teaser trailer is exactly that -- a teaser, with a date and everything, for another video. A... more
Okay, maybe I'm being too critical here. I can't help it though, considering I grew up with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I was that kid. That kid who had all the action figures including the dumb non-TMNT figures, all th... more
There's still no exact release date for Atlus and Old School Games' wacky cooperative third-person shooter God Mode, though the publisher does have the final cover art, viewable below.
A game's box art doesn't seem quite as s... more

South Park Studios has filed an objection in court to prevent the sale of South Park: The Stick of Truth in THQ's bankruptcy asset sale taking place later today unless certain conditions are met. South Park Studios wants the ... more
The Bit.Trip games have slowly but surely made their way to platforms other than their original home on the Nintendo Wii. This week, the third title in the acclaimed retro-inspired series, Bit.Trip Void, released on Stea... more
If you haven't heard of God Mode before, you'd probably surprised to hear that Atlus is publishing a Western third-person shooter. That's a far cry from the company's norm of working on obscure Japanese titles and creati... more

In a thread on NeoGAF, user milkybar1983 posted a bunch of images of box art for upcoming Xbox Live Arcade titles. One such game is Star Wars: First Assault which, curiously enough, has not yet been announced. The cover art i... more
