At this rate, I'm starting to feel like Final Fantasy XV will outlive us all. The post-release episodes centered on Gladiolus, Prompto, and Ignis were really just the beginning for 2016's ever-expanding RPG adventure. Square Enix has alread...

Defender's Quest is just as easy to love on consoles

It might look unassuming at first glance, but Defender's Quest: Valley of the Forgotten is not so secretly one of the best tower defense titles in recent years. It's way up there. The game tells a fairly compelling story, it's mechanically ...

PS4 players can now go through SOMA in Safe Mode

PUBG's next map will arrive in the first half of 2018

There's been some concern about where exactly PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is headed this year. The game is obviously still selling, and people are still playing it en masse, but where's the roadmap? Writing on Steam, the development team ...

Biomutant looks weird as hell and I'm really into it

"What even is this game?" That was my initial reaction to hearing about Biomutant, an open-world action-RPG from Experiment 101 and THQ Nordic. Months later, I'm still trying to process it. In Biomutant, you can customize your protagonist w...

The Switch port of Rime is in a much better place now

Blizzard is streaming a Puppy Rumble today for Overwatch

Dogs are the greatest. Big, small, fluffy, floppy -- it doesn't matter. They fill my heart with pure joy, and there's a cordoned-off section of my mind devoted to thinking about them and how good they are. Every once in a while, dogs and ga...

PlayStation Network is running a flash sale

It's another flash-sale Friday on the North American PlayStation Network. What'll it be this time? This weekend's sale is light on Vita games (even more than normal, I mean), but there's a decent crop of PS3 titles. Of course, PS4 is where ...

Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality hits PS4 in April

For as many PlayStation VR games as I own, so few of them are physical copies. Sometimes that's by choice (it's a lot easier to swap between games with a headset on when you don't have to change discs, and file sizes are typically small), b...
