Haha, the commentary in this Umbrella Corps video

Resident Evil spin-off
Oct 07
// Jordan Devore
Steven played a little Umbrella Corps at Tokyo Game Show and he was right -- the fast crawl does look ridiculous, and zombies aren't much of a threat in this competitive third-person shooter. With today's footage, Capcom tried its hand at eSports-style commentary. It does not go well.

Oh yeah, Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem exists

New story trailer

I don't forget about major releases often, but I totally forgot Genei Ibun Roku X FE (yep, that's the official title) is a thing. Originally known as Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem, which was thought to be a tradi...

Dust: An Elysian Tail, a fantastic metroidvania, is coming to iOS

'Very soon'
Oct 07
// Chris Carter
Dust: An Elysian Tail, released originally on XBLA in 2012, is one of my favorite metroidvanias in recent memory. The fact that it was developed by one guy, basically, is still insane to me, given how deep the game is mechani...

Here's what the pre-order bonus for Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden looks like

Super Butoden 2, an SNES game
Oct 07
// Chris Carter
Some of my fondest gaming memories involve late-night fighting sessions with Dragon Ball Z games. The Butoden series was a classic, but I also played plenty of Dragon Ball Z: Legends on the original PlayStation, wh...

Hey, egghead! Come watch the newest Fallout 4 trait video

Or we'll pants you and give you a swirly
Oct 07
// Brett Makedonski
The latest in the seven-video-long Fallout 4 S.P.E.C.I.A.L. series is for everyone who thinks they're smart. Not street-smart. Like, academia-learned, "I've read a book or a million"-smart. Intelligence is the trait of ...

Pretty good Halo marketing, Microsoft

A few days ago, Microsoft had a Halo 5 mural painted on a building in London. This video shows the creation process. It's nice, as these things tend to be -- at least as nice as possible when it's Master Chief's head sp...

Halo 5's Forge mode is the 'biggest yet,' not shipping with the game

Coming in December
Oct 06
// Brett Makedonski
Halo has always had an active and creative community that loves adding its own twists on the series it adores. Since 2007, it has been unnecessary to look any further than Forge to find shining examples of this. The mode, wh...

Geralt of Rivia has found himself opposite all kinds of opponents. Ghouls and beasts and insects and vampires -- the list goes on and on. So, when he's facing boring ol' humans, well, that's about as mundane as his life gets...

Back in July we got a barebones announcement that Skullgirls developer Lab Zero Games has been working on a role-playing game called Indivisible and that it would begin a crowdfunding campaign for it late in September. It's ...

[Update: Looks like we have our answer and it's Far Cry Primal.] What's Ubisoft working on next? Our only indication is this quick loop of a hieroglyph depicting a man holding a spear and bow. It's likely one of those fancy ...

Pollen is a sci-fi thriller without jump scares

VR optional but recommended
Oct 05
// Jordan Devore
Another game for the "best played in virtual reality" list. Pollen, as you might recall from that time Brett ran a story about bees, is a sci-fi exploration game set on the largest moon of Saturn. You're on a research station, pulling and prodding things to solve puzzles, take in the environmental storytelling, and find out "what hides under Titan's surface."

Mario Maker player subverts guilt-trip level to save every Yoshi

Take that, Ross
Oct 05

Some level creators are using Super Mario Maker as a platform to make us feel guilty. They're dreaming up courses that put Yoshi in harm's way and have it so Mario can't reach the end without sacrificing his faithful companio...

Oct 02

Rare has shared another behind-the-scenes video about Conker and this one sure brings me back. Conker's Quest, as it was originally called before undergoing a name change to Twelve Tales: Conker 64, debuted at E3 in 1997. It ...

I had the chance to check out Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir at TGS recently, and man was it fantastic. The art style absolutely holds up, and the framerate issues of the original (one of the only real problems) were complete...

Man, I really hope Yomawari gets localized

Creepy cute PS Vita game
Oct 02
// Chris Carter
Every time I see Yomawari (Night Watch), it's looking better and better. The game is an isometric horror title, and is backed by a wonderful soundtrack and an adorable story involving a young girl who is looking for her dog and sister in Japan. The atmosphere looks incredible, and the Vita could use more original games like this. Hopefully NIS will bring it over eventually.

Good defense, guys

// Brett Makedonski
Old, stodgy, wrong sports broadcasters like to yell that defense wins championships. If that's true, then this team is the 2008 Detroit Lions of Rocket League (for you non-sports folk, that means they're god-fucking-awful, which you could probably tell just from watching the GIF).

Soar the island-filled skies of Worlds Adrift

Oct 01 // Jordan Devore
[embed]313407:60583:0[/embed] There's Spider-Man-style swinging at 7:15. Ship construction, which is done by hand, starts at 10:50. Williams demonstrates flying at 19:20 and even alone, without the threat of other players, it looks terrifying. Then again, he clearly knows how to grapple and isn't afraid of plummeting to his death. Lastly, you can take photos (including selfies!) and frame them. See that at 23:20.
Worlds Adrift photo
But watch out for pirates
Bossa Studios (Surgeon Simulator, I am Bread) is making an open-world MMO about building airships, flying them to floating islands, and screwing over others (probably). You interested? The developers were in town, so we sent Rey to take a look at that game, Worlds Adrift, and he put together this in-depth video with narration provided by designer Luke Williams.

It's not exactly a leap of faith, but NHL 16 has used its magical season simulating video game powers to predict that the Anaheim Ducks will win the 2016 Stanley Cup. By most accounts, Anaheim enters the season as the W...

Hope you enjoy this Black Ops III story trailer, last-gen players

Because it's all you're getting
Sep 30
// Jordan Devore
Call of Duty: Black Ops III will have multiplayer and the usual star-studded Zombies mode on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, but no campaign -- it's too "ambitious" for last-generation hardware. If you want Christopher Meloni (and who doesn't?), you'll need to play on PC, Xbox One, or PS4.
