Sci-fi parkour platformer Super Cloudbuilt coming to PC and consoles

2014's Cloudbuilt struck me as conceptually interesting game that would get on my nerves as the difficulty ratcheted up, and as a result, it kind of just came and went. Or so I thought! Coilworks and Double Eleven are bringing the speedrun...   read

TowerFall creator's new game Celeste headed to Switch

GameStop: Switch has a higher attach rate than Wii U

Maybe don't watch this spoilery Zelda: Breath of the Wild video
