Yomawari from NIS is still creepy, still cute


I'm digging the music too
Aug 04
// Chris Carter
A month ago we just had screens to go by, but Yomawari is shaping up nicely if this new trailer from NIS is any indication. Backed by beautiful music, we get to see a bit of gameplay here, which involves a girl searching for her sister and dog in a city. It'll drop on October 29 in Japan on Vita (!).

I'm at Microsoft's gamescom press conference battling bad Wi-Fi and mashing the keyboard in hopes that words magically form. Sometimes I get a chance to look up at the what's happening on the screen. It just so happens that ...

Cobalt, that arena battle game, is still a Microsoft exclusive


New trailer
Aug 04
// Chris Carter
Mojang has shifted gears a bit since the Microsoft aquisition, and is going to be publishing some more projects in the future. One such game is Cobalt, an arena battler, that will debut on PC, Xbox 360, and Xbox One at an undisclosed date. Based on the trailer above, it looks like a fun little romp. I could always go for the occasional arena title with friends.

Ark: Survival Evolved adds giant spiders to its dino-fest


Coming to Xbox One
Aug 04
// Steven Hansen
Bad name, but man Ark: Survival Evolved looks great. It's already playable on Steam in Early Access, but it's coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One early next year. Not sure if it can do as well there as it will on PC, where people who play stuff like DayZ tend to congregate, but, hey, name one more cool-looking dinosaur game coming out anytime soon. Really, if I'm missing one, let me know.

Those extreme sound cues whenever a time travel power is used are real loud watching live. I somehow missed one of Lords of the Rings' hobbits ending up in the game -- this is still half a television show? Making an extreme ...

Guitar Hero Live could end up being a pretty neat experiment, and if Activision sticks to its word of not annualizing the franchise, I'll be happy. You can get a look at the in-game festivals (Rock the Block and SoundDi...

Wreck up not-LA with the Grand Theft Auto V Iron Man mod


Pretty good
Jul 31
// Steven Hansen
Chest burst, hand missiles, floating/flight, rocket punches, bullets dinking off the suit -- this isn't just a cool costume mod. Seems suitably over-powered, but also like a better Iron Man game than most of the licensed tie-ins I've ever seen. Also him getting hit by the car made me laugh out loud. [Viia Eurogamer]

I was going to get into my usual spiel about earning a subtitle, but Spider: Rite of the Shrouded Moon is actually a sequel to 2009's Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor. So 2009's Spider gets a posthumous talking to for colon...
