Noir puzzle platformer Renoir on Kickstarter

A few months back we got our first look at Renoir and I expressed some cautious optimism since the film noir genre is underused in games but the reveal trailer had no information on gameplay past the puzzle-platformer genre ...

Browser-based tactical card RPG Card Hunter headed to Steam

Somehow I have missed out on Card Hunter for the past couple years. It released in 2013 and Destructoid's reviews patriarch Chris Carter loved it. I don't know how it wasn't on my radar; it has a lot going for it I'm into. I...

The Tonight Show's (lack of) video game coverage has been disappointing

I have been a fan of Jimmy Fallon for a long time now. I used to have to qualify that statement with something like, "I know it's not cool, but..." These days it's a lot more acceptable to enjoy his playful take on late night...

Splatoon's Turf War now modded into Team Fortress 2

You're a squid now, you're a Demoman now. It might be missing the same ring to it, but that's what's going on in this Team Fortress 2 mod. Two teams of four face off to paint the environment and splat one another. Admittedly...

Ink is like Super Meat Boy if Meat Boy's blood were a rainbow

Today is a good day to celebrate rainbows, eh? I mean, every day is a good day to celebrate rainbows, and even if that weren't the case, I'd still highlight Super 91 Studios' Ink. It started as an entry to Ludum Dare 32, who...

Belated Father's Day: Throw babies in Dad Beat Dads

True story: my dad used to be quite the brawler. At a stocky 5'5" (165 cm), he was often underestimated. What he lacks in height and reach he makes up for in tenacity. What I'm trying to say is that I'm pretty sure my dad co...

Watch 23 minutes of Battleborn footage from E3

Jordan got some hands-on time with Battleborn at E3, and while his write up does a good job of laying down the basics, sometimes it's helpful to see a video in order to really get how a game plays. Now us poor, decrepit non-...

Tales from the Borderlands: Catch a Ride screenshots, we got 'em

Tales from the Borderlands: Catch a Ride is out today, and it continues the excellence the series has been known for thus far. As I normally do while playing through Telltale titles, I had my finger firmly planted on the F12 ...

Take On Mars gets a new trailer, beta this summer

I've been interested in Take On Mars for a while, but I'm always a little wary of doing the Early Access thing. On the one hand, there's exploring real-life locations on the red planet. On the other, there's playing an unfin...

Meet the Dirty Bomb team and maybe nab a Fragger

I'm hearing more and more about Dirty Bomb lately, almost to the point where I might download the free-to-play shooter to check it out. The chances just went up a bit, because PC Gamer has its hands on 100,000 keys for one o...

AMD introduces dual Fiji GPU card

The PC gaming show at E3 2015 is the first of its kind, and it came about in large part due to AMD's financial support. So early on there was what amounted to a drawn-out advertisement for AMD products. Later on, AMD CEO Lisa...

Yooka-Laylee Kickstarter ends with over $3.25 million

It was a long journey, but it has come to an end. A month and a half ago, the Banjo-Kazooie-esque 3D platformer showed up on Kickstarter, and it crushed its initial goal of £175,000 on day one, hitting over &p...

American Truck Simulator used Google Maps

I've always been fascinated by Euro Truck Simulator, but never jumped in because, pff, who wants to drive in Europe? This is America; we drive on American roads here and we speak American. As it turns out, American Truck Simu...

Fable Legends has 'years of content' planned

At the PC gaming show this evening, Xbox's Phil Spencer came out and introduced a few developers working on PC and Xbox One. One game in the presentation was Fable Legends, which I liked the last time I played it. In addition...

Lara Croft GO headed to mobile and tablet 'soon'

New Firewatch trailer hints at something dark

Campo Santo's Firewatch enjoyed a short fraction of Sony's E3 press conference tonight, but it was a good little video. It starts with high spirits, two voices joking around with one another, one guy playing with a turtle just for kicks, the usual. Toward the end, it hints toward the central conflict. Something dark is at play here. Some sort of park ranger impostor, maybe? I don't know.
