Cave Story creator's latest game is harder than Dark Souls

Have you heard of Pink Hour? It's a new game from Daisuke Amaya -- you know, the dude that made Cave Story. Also, Ikachan. Everyone always forgets about Ikachan. Anyway, Pink Hour is about a pink blob on a mission ...

Star Wars Pinball's final Masters of the Force table looks nuts

It feels like Zen Studios has been working on Star Wars Pinball for years now, and that's because it has. This trailer for one of the four featured tables of Star Wars Pinball: Heroes Within, appropriately titled "Masters of...

Here's your Tuesday Newsday for the last week or so! Today, we got a sexy new Dragon Age III: Inquisition trailer, some HD footage of Star Citizen out of PAX East, announcements of a new Fatal Frame on Wii-U as well as a bunch of Japanese games being localized. Sony, Microsoft, and ZeniMax have all been trademarking curious terms like "Eden Falls" "Screamride" "Killstrain" "Entwined" and "Nuka Cola."

Actor Todd Stashwick taken off Uncharted PS4

I had forgotten how badass the teaser for the next Uncharted game was thanks to the narration delivered by actor Todd Stashwick. Several months later, it's still about all we have to go on for the new PS4 installment. But it...

Sorry for the delay! Here's this week's episode of Farts 'N' Crafts, in which I draw something I've drawn rather compulsively since I was ten years old -- Boba Fett. Also, I show off some of the pictures you guys drew of Pokémon and Call of Duty

Rewrite history in the point-and-click game Inspire Me

When will kids learn -- you just don't mess around with time machines. Honestly, it's like the kids of 2040 have never seen Back to the Future. At least, young Kelvin, the main character in Inspire Me, clearly hasn't: he's b...

Gardening Mama 2: Forest Friends ships to US retailers photo
Gardening Mama 2: Forest Friends ships to US retailers
by Conrad Zimmerman

Majesco has announced that Gardening Mama 2: Forest Friends has shipped to North American retailers where you may offer currency in exchange for a copy. 

Maybe it's just because I haven't played a Mama game since the Wii installment of Cooking Mama and have simply forgotten why I lost interest in the franchise, but I'm giving serious consideration to playing this. There's a seeming wealth of mini-game variants and other content, while Mama is coming off more adorable than ever. I love a character who makes failure entertaining in its own right, and her wrath certainly qualifies as that.

Lords of the Fallen challenge trailer takes a mulligan, kicks in doors

It turns out that when a hulking behemoth charges at you as fast as it can, you might want to get out of the way. If that wasn't common sense, the first 40 seconds of this new Lords of the Fallen trailer expertly convey...

Batman: Arkham Origins Cold, Cold Heart DLC launched

The next bit of additional content for Batman: Arkham Origins has released today and I'm personally hoping that they deliver when it comes to Victor Fries. I find him to be criminally under-appreciated as a villain for ...

Namco has made another Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures

Coming to PS3, 360, Wii U, and 3DS this fall, a sequel to "an emotionless venture that's devoid of any soul or effort." I guess Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures, which is based on the new Pac-Man television series, did well enough to warrant a sequel.

Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment being localized this summer

Will a bunch of people complain about how I just don't like anime if I say that Sword Art Online doesn't seem very good? Though at least it might make a passable game. Hard to mess up multiplayer monster fighters with bad wr...

Preview: Grid Autosport's San Francisco needs steeper hills
by Steven Hansen

Hot on the heels of last year's GRID 2, Codemasters is coming back with GRID Autosport, a "celebration of pure, unadulterated motorsport." This is going to be less of an arcade racer than GRID 2 ended up being, but without drifting too far into stodgy simulation either.

We'll see if the middle ground pleases anyone on June 24. It did please me, though, despite the insurmountable damage I did to all of the cars. I am a much better driver in real life.

Dragon Age: Inquisition launches on October 7 photo
Dragon Age: Inquisition launches on October 7
by Abel Girmay

The Blight is over, the Qunari have been driven from Kirkwall, and the mages have gone to all out war with their Templar oppressors. We've seen a lot of crisis across Thedas, but all that doesn't seem to compare when demons and spirits are invading your home. Hide your kids, hide your wife, and hide your husbands 'cause they're taking everybody out here.

As we already knew, Dragon Age: Inquisition's story centers around the Veil being torn, and all the creatures of the Fade entering our world. What's newly revealed, is that the player character, the Inquisitor, will have a closer connection to the Fade, being able to travel to and from. This isn't restricted to classes either, where traditionally mages are the only ones with a natural connection to the Maker's first world.

The trailer also shows the return of series staple characters Leiliana and the now ex-Templar Cullen, serving as the heads of the Inquisition's shadow and military arms respectively. They won't be available as party members, but their role with the Inquisitor plays heavily into Inquisition's new War Table mechanic. While exact details aren't being revealed, the War Table will allow the Inquisitor to send allies away on missions, similar to what Assassin's Creed introduced with Brotherhood.

Finally, the trailer shows off more of the Inquisitors mounts, so if you're hoping to live out a Shadowfax fantasy with your mage, here's the chance. Unfortunately, EA has confirmed that wyverns will not be a mount option, so I guess my Qunari warrior won't exactly be the beast mode Conan I dreamed of.

Dragon Age: Inquisition is scheduled to release on October 7, 2014 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Those wishing to import decisions from last-gen systems should also check out Dragon Age Keep, a story editor tool that will let you recreate, or create new story data.
