Cold Stone Creamery (Wii) voice acting will haunt me forever

You hear the first "good jooobbb" at :30 and what was once a weird, branded* cash-in with a Candy Crush color scheme and, well, a Candy Crush everything -- when did this come out? 2009! -- becomes a little less comfortable. *Because of reg...

NieR: Automata screens are hot as hell

While I have at least heard the lauded soundtrack, I also have not played Nier, the cult classic RPG that Square Enix is bafflingly bringing back with Platinum Games at the helm. We interviewed them after the PS4-exclusive iNieR: Automata ...

Make yourself a Fallout 4 Pip-Boy on the cheap

Maybe you missed Bethesda's mercurial Fallout 4 Pip-Boy edition each and every time it whack-a-mole'd back up. Maybe you discovered and fell in love with Fallout 4 late. Maybe you want to make a friend w gift. Maybe you're really fucking b...

Square's Super Mario RPG pitch: Mario with a sword on horseback

I regretfully have not played Super Mario RPG, but I have a feeling it wouldn't be so revered as a classic had Nintendo followed Square's initial pitch, which included Mario riding a horse, wearing a cape, and holding a sword. It'd just be...

Banner Saga 2 is as pretty as it is out right now

We've not got up a review for The Banner Saga 2 yet, but it did wriggle out onto Steam last week (PC and Mac). For now, do some alchemy to combine the above launch trailer and our very positive review of the original Banner Saga back in 20...

One last Uncharted 4 trailer for the road

I'm not sure headline limitations and economy allow for it, but "One last Uncharted 4 trailer for the last of us" was my initial joke, but then I felt like it'd take explanation and at that point you're pushing the boundaries of what is a ...

Battleborn's 'motion comic' prequel series is complete

Battleborn is set on a cool premise: there is one star left in the universe and all spacefaring species have converged on it as the last place where life can be sustained. I had previously assumed it was meant to take place in the ultra-dis...

When the frame rate is so bad, it makes you ill

I hadn't really heard of Lichdom: Battlemage until our recent post about its new PlayStation 4 and Xbox One ports -- they're $49.99 a piece, or bizarrely enough you could just get the PC version for $1.99 in a bundle -- and now here it is ...

John Romero is teasing a new PC shooter

Is that a Phurba dagger in his pocket or is Nathan Drake just happy to be 'powered' by GameStop?

Along with four separate editions of the game (get it, Uncharted FOUR?), Naughty Dog's alleged last entry in the series (or in Drake's story, at least) also has pre-order boners bonuses, including retail-specific ones. Quote Chris, "DLC is...

This lyrical Japanese PS4 commercial is freaking great

This Tracer trailer for Heroes of the Storm is so dang charming

Wow, Runescape still exists and just got a graphics overhaul

My brief experience with Runescape must have been more than 10 years ago. A friend played, I guess, and was playing. Maybe he was showing it to me in the hopes that I, too, would play; with him, no less! Instead, what I did was take over t...
