Dying Light has a sweet slide move

So I still need to actually play Vanquish in full, but that rocket knee slide? Good stuff. Dying Light's slide is not so cool, but with enough forward momentum, you could get a decent slide going.  I am only still ...

Costume Quest 2 is still cute, trying to be more engaging photo
Costume Quest 2 is still cute, trying to be more engaging
by Steven Hansen

Costume Quest, like every Double Fine game, is charming. It's a fresh-feeling, low stakes take on the JRPG genre, more Earthbound than Final Fantasy. Though, as Chad put it in his review, it's "RPG Lite," accessible for all ages.  

Double Fine doesn't want to sacrifice that, but does want to make Costume Quest 2's combat a bit more engaging. I was engaged with Paper Mario (or Final Fantasy VIII) style timed button presses that help your attacks do a bit more damage. Similarly, a well timed tap on defense will reduce the damage you take. This engagement, though, make things a bit easier so long as you can hit those button presses.

Review: Dark Souls II: The Crown of the Old Iron King photo
Review: Dark Souls II: The Crown of the Old Iron King
by Chris Carter

While Dark Souls II brought me back to that special place that I found with Demon's Souls in many ways, the first DLC pack, Crown of the Sunken King, didn't go far enough with its concepts.

It's really hard to give us a worthwhile add-on with Artorias of the Abyss looming over it, but the second pack, Crown of the Old Iron King, does a much better job of distilling the Souls experience.

OlliOlli grinds perfectly onto PS4 and PS3

Minimalist skateboarding game OlliOlli first kickflipped its way into our hearts this January when it landed on PlayStation Vita, and now it's rolled onto PS3 and PS4. The console version is every bit as gnarly as its portable predecessor. Plus, it features cross-buy and cross-save functionality, so experienced shredders needn't stall jumping back in.

These are your free PlayStation Plus games for September
by Steven Hansen

Not a bad haul. Sportsfriends is great for local co-op. PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale probably is, too. I've been meaning to go back and play it since they added Kat from Gravity Rush. And TxK is a real good Vita game. Hoard (PS3) is, uh, probably okay.

Joe Danger is hitting the Vita, too, along with Velocity 2X (PS4, Vita). Both are going to be free with PS+ right at their launch.

I enjoyed Dragon Age: Inquisition's multiplayer a lot more than I thought I would
by Chris Carter

There have been rumors of a multiplayer component in Dragon Age: Inquisition for quite a while. BioWare has been keeping things under wraps for months after a small hint of its inclusion, and speculation was rampant as to what exactly it might entail.

After a recent visit to BioWare's offices I had a chance to sit down with the multiplayer extensively, and I found myself slowly becoming addicted as the afternoon went on. In fact, I liked it far more than Mass Effect 3's co-op mode -- so I have high hopes for Inquisition.
