Call of Cthulhu (2017)

Yeah, I could go for another good Call of Cthulhu game

Those first two character-less images of Cyanide's Call of Cthulhu weren't exactly illuminating, but today's screenshots offer more insight into the investigation-driven role-playing game. What are we looking into, exactly? As a private inv...

First screenshots of Dontnod's action-RPG Vampyr are especially dark

We've already seen a little bit of what to expect from Dontnod's upcoming action role-playing game Vampyr, through both a teaser video and some concept art. Both showed a dark world, in both the feasting-on-the-blood-of-humans and the it-is...

These new Styx: Shards of Darkness screenshots sure are colourful

Styx: Master of Shadows was a really great, pure stealth game. Not only that, but as a prequel to Of Orcs and Men it did an excellent job of fleshing out Styx’s character with a surprisingly interesting story. If these new screenshots...

Styx: Shards of Darkness brings my favourite foul-mouthed goblin back

Cyanide Studios’ RPG Of Orcs and Men is one of my absolute favourite games. It managed to introduce an interesting world told from a perspective we don’t often see in fantasy games, but unfortunately its sometimes clunky present...

Divinity: Original Sin should be the next great couch co-op game

If I'm going to play Divinity: Original Sin -- and I'm told that I absolutely should -- I'd prefer to do so cooperatively on a single screen. That's the topic at hand for this Enhanced Edition trailer. To recap, Enhanced Edition is its own ...

We've seen impressive stills from Tindalos and Focus Home's Battlefleet Gothic: Armada but no gameplay footage up until now. The Unreal Engine 4-powered real-time strategy title looks fantastic in motion, too. After hearing about all of tho...

The Technomancer gets chased through Mars, is not Total Recall

Pix is a mix of the two most saccharine basic emoticons, :3 and ^_^, a face for the forgotten mascot age. Just too cute, and not in a way that ever betrays the fiendish score-chaser underneath. Sincere cuteness. A real testam...   read

Vampyr: A new RPG from the Remember Me devs

Dontnod Entertainment has yet to release its upcoming project Life is Strange, but it already has another game in the works. And, this one looks to be in a totally different vein (that pun will definitely make sense in a few seconds). At a ...

Games Workshop's Battlefleet Gothic becoming a real-time strategy PC game

Styx: Master of Shadows has you play as a sneaky goblin

Contrast lets you solve puzzles in the 1920s as a shadow

I hope Compulsion Games is able to build an audience for Contrast. While this may be a puzzle-platformer, its subject matter is darker, more adult than what you might normally associate with the genre. Caitlin and Spencer caught this shado...

Farming Simulator sure knows how to do a good trailer

After emerging from my post-Fourth of July coma this morning, it was this trailer for the console ports of Farming Simulator, of all things, that caught my eye. Do not -- I repeat, do not! -- watch this if you are still feeling the effects...

In a move not expected by anyone, the Heralds of Ruin Kill Team Rules (The Good Warhammer 40K Kill Team Rules) have been updated. While Im not too hype about Eldar near-D shenanigans and Rogue Trader Ork weapons, the Grot Rebel list seems to be blast!

I might actually get Overwatch in the near future if I can play it with you guys. Ive never had a group to play with before.

 
Shinta

Finally got around to starting Pocket Jockey. What a delightful little game. I absolutely adore the dialogue and the main character. The gameplay is really fun too. Fun fact, CJ is quoted on the eshop in the sales banner for the game right now.

The next person to ask me to hold the door today is getting kicked in the balls. While Im sobbing of course. Seriously fuck my coworkers.

Is it acceptable to rant here? Even if its not about games? Cause Im sick of my female facebook friends linking to their odyssey online articles they wrote. Youre 19 and a freshman in college. You dont have all the answers. Sorry this isnt video gamey

And thats REmake finished and done-really good game, had a great time with it. Finally digging into the backlog and clearing it out a bit.

So I watched Millennium Actress again today and I dont know why I insist on watching movies that make me feel terrible things after theyre done. I still wholly recommend it if you havent seen it before. Its fantastic.

Im not sure how I feel about dividing my most recent WIP blog into parts, but its probably for the better. It was already larger than any other blog I had written with just 25% done.

Man, sockpuppet accounts representing gamers are still in vogue. Sad they dont know it takes longer to create them than to ban/delete them.

Browsing through Doom Mods you can find pretty much everything ... but the lack of Warhammer 40k themed mods is kinda disturbing ... and sad.

God dammit. Day-1 patches are so inconvenient.

Hey Torch, whats writing your recent blog like 30% writing, 70% making gifs

Well, I caved in and grabbed a copy of Overwatch (PS4).

what you wanna see video-wise out e3? conference recaps round tables? video previews to go w/ written? just off-screen footage for extended look at gameplay of new games that prob only got brief trailers? purely weird shit like that Great America video?

Watching Monday Night RAW and a DOOM commercial pops up. Bloody Awesome - Destructoid. Being quoted from a 2014 post. You guys made it, now.

So, if Microsoft already has a console not doing so well, is it really wise to release an upgraded version and segment their already not-great market share? Like if the NX was a more powerful Wii U instead of a new system, would anyone care or want it?

 
Dreamweaver

Because only poor people have to choose. :P Nah, for real though, even though I bought Battleborn to tide me over until Overwatch came out, I think its a lot of fun for MOBA players. I can see myself trying to play both games for the foreseeable future.

When people complain that Gotham doesnt fit the Batman continuity I have to ask... which continuity? I mean, how many goddamn versions of the Batman continuity are there? At least Gotham is trying something different (and doing it quite well imo).

I actually think the Wii-U is the worst console I have ever owned. Ive played maybe 10 games I like on it, but only 3 are actually Wii-U games and not virtual console games, and only 1 of those is actually made by Nintendo.
