The team at Hello Games got an opportunity that I wish more studios, particularly those smaller companies with limited budgets, would get: an honest-to-goodness second chance. Not to say that Joe Danger was a bad game in need...

I have an interesting relationship with the Jak and Daxter series. I went into the first game expecting absolutely nothing, and came away so impressed that I now consider it one of my most beloved platformers of all time. But...

Say what you will about mobile games in general, but a whole heap of developers are doing the platform right. One of the good guys is Halfbrick, who has contiuously updated Jetpack Joyride for nearly three years now with...

Before No Man's Sky, there was Joe Danger 2, a lovable side-scrolling racing/platform game about a motorbike-riding daredevil. After appearing on Xbox 360, PC, and PlayStation 3, the game is now primed for its PS Vita debut, ...

When The Unfinished Swan and Journey are ported to PS4, players who own the games on PS3 will not have to pay again to experience the new versions -- Cross-Buy support is confirmed! Someone in the PlayStation Blog comments al...

Last year, an unassuming game came to iOS in the form of Jack Lumber. At first glance, it seemed to be a clone of Fruit Ninja, but upon careful inspection, it was actually a much, much deeper experience. Developer Owlchemy Labs have demonstrated that they can create an interesting, captivating world on top of a solid gameplay foundation, and best of all -- an obscene over-the-top love for puns.

The definitive version of Jamestown: Legend of the Lost Colony, a bullet hell shooter set on 17th-century British colonial Mars, was planned to release last summer on the PS4. But as luck would have it, there were some delay...

As a kid of the '90s, I'm no stranger to mascot platformers. Aero the Acrobat, Jersey Devil -- I've pretty much played them all, and for the most part, they were safe and enjoyable experiences. But in the current era dom...

How do you like your fighting games? Personally, I like mine with a sizable dose of pop culture references and eye-melting color palettes infused with a healthy dose of humor that's hilariously self-aware. That's what you get...

Describing Jazzpunk is pretty damn hard. It's billed as a "comedy adventure game," but it's so much more (and sometimes less) than that. It's packed full of references, oddball minigames, and voicework that will make you laugh more often than not. For those reasons alone, it's not going to be for everyone. Unless you really like the idea of squirting a can of Cheez Whiz on Jim Sterling.

Joe Danger is a pretty massive hit for Hello Games. We loved the first game, we enjoyed the sequel, and in 2013 they brought the franchise to iOS. Now, Joe rides yet again on the mobile platform, but this time, he's shrunk down to Toy Story size and placed in a series of mini themed levels and races. It's more of the same, but that should be enough for Joe fans.

Four Christmases ago, I joined the smartphone brigade when I found an iPhone 4S nestled under the tree. Oh boy! I thought. Now I can grab all those iOS games that people can't shut up about! And for a couple of years, I was a...

Ask any old-school PC gamer about his favorite tactical games, and more often than not you'll find a Jagged Alliance title near the top of the list. It's a name held in nearly as high regard as X-COM or Syndicate, and fo...

A whole bunch of games dropped on us today, but there was an absence. Sega sent out a press release today stating that the PS Vita port of Jet Set Radio has been delayed. The publisher gave no specifics as to when the ti...

When I received a review copy of Jimmie Johnson's Anything With An Engine, I laughed loudly. How could I not? The name alone sounds like the erotic memoirs of a man with a robot fetish, the front cover looks like somethi...

A few weeks ago, I raised a stink about LCD games, particularly Tiger Electronics' suite of portables. Contrary to my comments, I admit to enjoying such devices in short bursts back in my youth. I also have fond, and certainl...

The kart racing genre is a staple of gaming that each console generation experiences. While Mario Kart may have broken the original mold, several hundred others xeroxed it before the concept broke. But like every copy of a co...

James Pond 2: Codename Robocod is one of the first games I ever remember playing. By most standards, James Pond was never a great series, but its charmingly unfunny humor and silly gameplay made it quite popular in Britain.&n...
