Holy bat-milk, you guys! We're doing video reviews regularly now! This one is based on Steven's review of Batman: Arkham Knight. Since we're not so deep into this scheme that we can't self-adjust, I want to hear from you all:...
Stat scaling for password matches
The next patch for Bloodborne (1.05) is suitably cryptic and intriguing. It's going to further tweak cooperative play as well as provide the usual undisclosed fixes and matchmaking improvements.
If a player uses the Beckonin...
No free DLC this week
When The Witcher 3's Patch 1.07 releases later this week on all platforms, players will find changes to inventory that make the process of hauling around tons of equipment far more manageable. That includes not only the liter...
Introducing sci-fi shooter Red Ash
Keiji Inafune and Comcept have wrapped development on Mighty No. 9 and are now returning to Kickstarter to fund their next project, Red Ash, a spiritual successor to Mega Man Legends.
Announced today at Anime Expo in Los Ange...
Batman: Arkham Knight may be the third and final title in Rocksteady's trilogy of Caped Crusader games, but its first add-on travels back to before the origins of the series. Okay, well, it's the first add-on save for th...
Beam me up, ninja
When I heard of a game concept that starts you off at the last boss and takes you back through his castle as the story progresses, I was intrigued.
Sadly, the mere premise of Roving Rogue is probably its strongest quality.
On July 3, Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is getting its monthly dose of free DLC. Again, I know this is the norm for Monster Hunter, but to see Capcom follow through with this strategy is still jarring to me.
This month you...
Australia and New Zealand, too!
Shingeki no Kyojin: Humanity in Chains has finally arrived for the Nintendo 3DS in PAL territories.
The action game allows players to suit up in Omni-directional Mobility Gear and take on Titans as either familiar faces from the manga and anime series or characters of your own creation.
For €30, the (digital-only) title comes with an exclusive 3DS theme. You can find our review here.
That's a sharp helmet
Just in time for Independence Day, the testosterone soaked, uber-patriotic Broforce is getting a synthoil injection of content by way of its “Freedom Update.” Featuring two new bros to mangle commies and protect ...
That is to say, there's a lot of blood
I was originally going to pass on posting this trailer, but I came across it while I was listening to Lana del Rey's Ultraviolence and that just seemed like too great of a coincidence. Also, the developer's name (Wolf Brew) ...
"I will say that it’s pretty rich for WB to act like they had no idea the game was in such a horrible state," an anonymous quality assurance tester on Arkham Knight told Kotaku. "It’s been like this for months and...
Find a crew, find a job, keep flying
The Space Sim genre has been one of the most ambitious and sought after titles from developers and fans alike. Ever since the early days of gaming, there's been a desire to craft a title that allows for exploration across a s...
Subheaders are the bane of my existence
Onechanbara Z2: Chaos is coming to North America on July 21, XSEED Games just announced.
After a brief hands-on session with the upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive at E3 the other week, I'm actually looking forward to this...
'No two-page inserts here!'
Shovel Knight is one of those games that's so good, you want as many people as possible to hear about it, play it, and hopefully dig it as much as you do. To that end, some good news: Yacht Club Games is pushing for a retail ...
Where the Cat and Wolf Play
Another week, another free content update for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. This time around it's a new quest, entitled "Where the Cat and the Wolf Play." For those who aren't aware, CD Projekt Red has been adding small bits of D...
Reminder: This thing is $40
Were we expecting the remaster of Darksiders II for current systems to look significantly better than the 2012 original (RIP THQ)? I was not. Crisper and smoother, sure, but that's about it. Here are some comparison screenshots that, at least to these less-than-stellar eyes, took some studying.
Still doing Nier 2!
Taro Yoko (Nier, Drakengard) has started a mysterious new company, Bukkoro. There's a website and not much else to go on. It does have adorable drawings done by Taiko Drum Master artist Yukiko Yokoo.
According to Siliconera, ...
Don't say 'Origins!'
Let's start at the beginning, shall we? Batman: Arkham Asylum, through and through, is just a good video game. It took a simple concept ("Be the Bat"), introduced the free-flow combat system and the Predator stealth...
Mash, mash, mash, mash, mash, mash......
J-Stars Victory VS+ is a game that's mechanically light, heavy on fanservice volume but that only ever skims the surface of the characters it includes. If you want an anime brawler that focuses on the sheer volume of anime ch...
My dad could beat up your dad
True story: my dad used to be quite the brawler. At a stocky 5'5" (165 cm), he was often underestimated. What he lacks in height and reach he makes up for in tenacity. What I'm trying to say is that I'm pretty sure my dad co...
Plus a discount for North America
After a short delay, Shingeki no Kyojin: Humanity in Chains is launching across Europe, Australia, and New Zealand next week on July 2, Atlus USA announced today.
If you're curious as to why the Nintendo 3DS game is being rel...
I still love those demon designs
Omega Force's action-RPG about hunting Oni has come to Steam. Great news! There are few if any games like this available on PC. But because it's Koei Tecmo, Toukiden: Kiwami costs $59.99.
This is an expanded version of Toukid...
Hold onto your butts
Another year, another beloved franchise gets the LEGO treatment. This year, blocks and dinosaurs come together in LEGO Jurassic World, a compilation of games spanning the entire Jurassic Park film franchise. Released simultan...
3D Realms just shared its E3 gameplay trailer for the upcoming Bombshell project, and man does it look cheesy as all hell. Whether that's a good or a bad thing by the time the game hits I don't know, but for now you can...
[Note: This review is based on a retail PlayStation 4 copy of Batman: Arkham Knight, not the PC version that is so broken publisher Warner Bros. temporarily delisted it from sale]
If the difference between the real Batman and...
In space, no one can hear you plant
When I first played Cosmochoria at PAX, I had to be pulled away from the demo station because of an appointment. The game's blend of calming gardening mixed with tower defense and space spelunking really jived with me. A...
My first flight with Rodea: The Sky Soldier wasn't a smooth one. But perhaps that's to be expected of a title that's seen such a turbulent development history.
The project went dark shortly after its initial announcement in 2010, then underwent a change of platforms -- something that seems all too apparent after a few minutes with the final product.
How long before someone notced
Writing for the Internet is strangely calming. I know that if I make a mistake (which I do, frequently) that I can quickly edit it and it’s gone forever.
Unfortunately in the world of book publishing, that’s not s...
Real Dante returns
It wasn't until I played the very first Devil May Cry game that I knew I was an action fan. I must have beaten it five times at launch, pouring through every facet over weeks, perfecting my frame-by-frame combat abilities -- ...
After a few delay and hiccups, the Caped Crusader's newest title Batman: Arkham Knight releases tomorrow on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. The game lists for the usual $59.99, but on PC there are a handful of deals for...
