I'm slimey like a snail

Slime Rancher just added more cuteness!

I'm pretty sure I was right when I said Slime Rancher would be the next big indie hit -- although it is no Stardew Valley -- and now the game is getting even better. In update version 0.3.0 released today, players will be able to expl...

This Blanka toy makes me happier than Yoshinori Ono

Look at that beautiful little Blanka! Oh my gosh! I came across these Street Fighter Mini Figures from Multiverse and illustrator Miguel Wilson a while back, but must've been too tied up with who-knows-what to cover them at the time. The co...

Farlands looks like the spiritual successor to Pokemon Snap I've always wanted

If you've played Pokémon Snap, chances are you loved it and wouldn't mind a sequel. Since Nintendo is too busy making games about security-camera-controlling frogs with mustaches, Oculus went ahead and made what seems like a spiritu...

Dogmeat wins big at the World Dog Awards

Sometimes it’s easy to forget what’s important in life. This week we’ve had eighty billion VR headsets announced, and graphics cards that could probably punch a hole in the space-time continuum, and yeah, that's exciting a...

I would gladly trade a Rock Band 4 set for a puppy

The prospect of puppies has an undeniable power. Earlier this week, professional hockey player Bobby Ryan scored a goal in a game, earning these two kids a new pup. Not to be outdone, the next day another hockey player netted three goals, w...

Yarnie litters the land with his very fabric in this new Unravel gameplay

After seeing Unravel unveiled at E3 2015, I haven't stopped yearning to play it. The creator was super adorable as he nervously talked about his game on stage, the main character is cute as hell, and the gameplay looks simple yet imag...

Come watch someone's dad do Street Fighter II's victory poses

Street Fighter’s victory poses have always been kind of daft to me. Instead combing their hair, doing backflips, or laughing at nothing, chances are as soon as a real fight was over people would just limp away mumbling various swear ...

Adorable yarn adventure Unravel releasing in early 2016

Without a doubt, the star of E3 this year was Yarny, the adorable woolen hero of EA's upcoming faux indie release Unravel. He's just so gosh damn adorable, as is his nervously cute creator who we met at E3. For those of you just itching to ...

I hope this adorable Magikarp baby never evolves

This baby's costumed antics put a huge smile on my face. I hope you have the same reaction. It's basically the inverse of that (also great) beefcake Magikarp from last month.

Newly announced Kingdom Hearts Unchained X[chi] is adorable as heck

Usually I wouldn't make this big of a deal over something that is (so far) only releasing in Japan, but Kingdom Hearts Unchained X[chi] is just too cute to pass up. The iOS and Android game is based off a Japan-only browser game, ...

Samorost 3 looks like the surreal point-and-click adventure of my dreams

The last time I wrote about Samorost 3, I expressed surprise and delight that Amanita Design was making another one of these charming point-and-click adventure games. Today, a year and a half later, I could do the same -- I totally forgot ...

Cheerful shooter Lovely Planet lives up to its name

Lovely Planet is described as "a game of jumping and shooting," which sounds so much more fitting than "first-person shooter." You do shoot your gun at cute little things from a first-person perspective, sure, but I don't want to call some...
