Tangiers is what happens when stealth meets horror


Concrete hell
Jul 30
// Jordan Devore
Tangiers is said to be a surreal stealth game with a hint of horror, and the latest trailer checks out. It doesn't seem outright scary, but the world, characters, and sound design sure are uncomfortable. Like a voice in the b...

Persona 4: Dancing All Night trailer rocks faces with Kung-Fu dance


Chie busts out her steak powers
Jul 30
// Brett Makedonski
Chie insists that saving people in danger is her thing. I'd contend that dancing is her thing. She sure does a lot of dancing and not a lot of saving people in this trailer. Well, unless handing out unsolicited motivational ...

Total War: Warhammer looks appropriately ridiculous


You can summon the foot of Gork!
Jul 30
// Jordan Devore
I'm watching orcs and goblins and spiders march into battle and I'm losing my mind. After all of those trailers for Total War: Warhammer, this is exactly what I needed: in-game footage! It's a scripted demonstration, but damn if it isn't exciting to see these forces clash up close. Between direct-control kamikaze attacks and summoning a god to step on tanks, I have high hopes.

Flywrench is flapping its way to Steam


From the makers of Nidhogg
Jul 30
// Jordan Devore
I know Flywrench more for its cameo in Super Meat Boy than its own game. You too? Let's be pals. Messhof is retooling Flywrench for a release on Steam (Windows, Mac) "in a month" and I'm so down for the Daedelus-curated sound...

Flippin' the bird
Jul 30

Like a story Alfred Hitchcock once told, our fine, feathered friends aren't in a good mood today. The aviary community is up in wings over the launch of Angry Birds 2 on Android and iOS. They're irritated, upset, pissed...

Roll Playing Game gets the ball rolling this fall


And other ball-related puns
Jul 30
// Darren Nakamura
We might just be in a new renaissance of "roll the ball to the goal" games right now. Super Impossible Road showed us the benefits of breaking the rules. Polyball took it to a trippy otherworld. Now we have word about Roll Pl...

Rocket League does DLC right


Some free, some paid
Jul 30

Has Rocket League infiltrated your dreams yet? Give it time. It'll happen. Patrick showed us the upcoming Utopia Coliseum, but developer Psyonix has more in store for early August. A free update will add that arena plus Spect...

Iconoclasts finally gets a release announcement: Steam and Sony systems in 2016


Also drops the 'the' from its name
Jul 29
// Darren Nakamura
We have had our eyes on The Iconoclasts for a while now. It started development in 2010, and we have covered whispers of updates sporadically since then, including a rad mecha-worm boss fight using rail transport last year. G...

Well, I'm no longer afraid of Dropsy the clown


I am scared of whatever that was at 0:35
Jul 29
// Jordan Devore
Dropsy is a well-intentioned, upbeat clown who happens to be utterly terrifying. He's misunderstood! Given my fear of grotesque clowns, I've kept my distance, but curiosity got the better of me here. I clicked the trailer. It...

Devs 'aren't trying to fix gameplay' with Gears of War remaster


But things are being smoothed out
Jul 29
// Brett Makedonski
Even though it'll release almost nine years after the original, Gears of War players won't feel a lot of difference between 2006's game and the remaster. Sure, they'll notice a ton of differences, but they won't feel&nb...

N++ has one hell of a stylish launch trailer


Out now on PS4
Jul 29
// Jordan Devore
I'm thrilled and terrified to dig into N++. Darren and I have been reminiscing about the cooperative levels in its predecessor, N+, so pain is fresh on my mind. These games are brutal but fair and so satisfying. If you're new...

Zombie free-running game Dying Light teased vehicles as a part of its DLC plan earlier this month. Indeed, Techland has confirmed that all-terrain dirt buggies are a big part of the, "feature-heavy, story-based expansion pack...

Someone went through the trouble of recreating Star Wars' Tatooine for the Oculus Rift and it is awesome. In the demo appropriately named Tatooine, you can visit the cantina where a dance party is taking place with the ...

Rocket League is really, really good and Skeleton War is the Booker T of jet car soccer.

// Jordan Devore
I wasn't kidding when I said that funny goal gif convinced me to download Rocket League. Psyonix's driving/soccer game is brilliantly designed, and now I'm obsessed with it like the rest of you. My infatuation even extends to...

It sure has been a long time since Risk Legacy originally released, and yet, I can't help but perk up at the news that Rob Daviau is working on something in that vein. Heck, I named the previously announced SeaFall as my mos...

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's final DLC pack comes to Xbox on August 4


The torch has been passed to Treyarch
Jul 28

While Call of Duty has lost a lot of its steam from the Modern Warfare 2 glory days, Activision is still pushing ahead with the DLC schedule for the series. Now that Black Ops 3 is on the horizon, it’s time for Sledgeh...

Huge upcoming Fallout: New Vegas mod introduces nuclear winter


But all we have is a video for now
Jul 27
// Brett Makedonski
Those who play Fallout: New Vegas are used to an arid and hot landscape, but one upcoming mod based on Bethesda's 2010 game flips those tables. It's trading desert stereotypes for a frigid tundra environment, and it all...

Kirby on Unreal 4 is, uh, kind of unsettling


And other classics
Jul 27
// Brett Makedonski
Just like the Dtoid staff's attempt at drawing him last year, Kirby on Unreal Engine 4 just doesn't quite sit right. Maybe it's the way his gums (gums?) flap open to suck up a whole lot of nothing. Maybe it's a gritty filter...

I miss Monkey Ball, so I'll probably play Polyball


Watch the trailer
Jul 27
// Jordan Devore
I miss Super Monkey Ball so much. Granted, I still have my copy, and I'm into Monkey Target now more than ever, but a proper new console game would also be nice, y'know? If it ended up being junk, I could always just return t...

Super Mario Maker wants to ensure you remember classic Mario levels


And then flips them on their heads
Jul 27
// Brett Makedonski
The Mario franchise holds some of gaming's most universally well-known moments. No matter anyone's familiarity with games, chances are they've seen the first level of Super Mario Bros. They might even know where that extra l...

If you don't know what Dragon's Dogma Online is all about yet (being awesome), you can get a look at this new overview video above from Capcom. Sure it's free-to-play, so the jury is out on whether or not it will bombar...

When WWE 2K16 hits later this year, it'll have a pre-order bonus in tow -- The Terminator. Yep, that's the classic Arnold Schwarzenegger T-800 character. Evidently the game will have two T-800s in tow, with one modeled ...

Jul 27

I love grappling hooks. I don’t need a roof over my head, or a warm meal, or a loving boyfriend with whom I feel I can tell anything; all I need in life to be happy is a sick-as-fuck grappling hook, a big city, and a d...

Hercules: The Legendary Journeys star Kevin Sorbo has lent his voice to Hi-Rez Studios' mythology-themed MOBA Smite. How this collaboration didn't happen sooner, I'm not sure. Before crying "disappointed!" over microtransacti...
