The Falconeer is worth a look for aerial combat fans

The Falconeer isn't your everyday aerial combat game. Instead of zipping around in high-tech aircraft, you'll take flight as a big ol' bird in an ocean world full of warring factions, airships, and manta rays. "Using ranged weapons, the ga...

Guy mashes Mario Party 4 real good

Win or lose, I've literally never ended a round of Mario Party 4 feeling good about myself, my fellow players, or this wretched game – and yet I always come crawling back after enough time has passed. That's how it's always been, and ...

Wattam releases December 17, 2019 (for real this time!)

We love Katamari Damacy, and I'm confident we'll also love Keita Takahashi's latest oddball, Wattam. It's been such a long time coming, but the friend-making puzzle-adventure game is about to launch. Look for it to land on PlayStation 4 and...

Planet Zoo guide: Tips I wish I would've known sooner

Planet Zoo is a very good game for very good people, but disaster can strike at any moment. If you've played the original Zoo Tycoon series and Frontier's previous sim title, Planet Coaster, you'll have a decent idea of what to expect from ...

Review: Planet Zoo

Planet Zoo captures the spirit of Zoo Tycoon in a way I've only dreamed of until now. It's the zoo simulation I've waited 15 years for someone, anyone, to nail. Frontier Developments pulled it off. I wasn't necessarily the target audience f...

Nuclear Throne is worth playing for free courtesy of Epic

I will go to bat for Nuclear Throne, especially while the PC version is free on the Epic Games Store. Look, I get it. There's a near-endless supply of indie roguelike shooters in this world. So many of them blur together, and so very few a...

Days Gone added a way to reset hordes

As of patch 1.60, it's now possible to reset hordes in Days Gone and face them again. You can reset hordes, ambush camps, and infestation zones repeatedly, but first, you'll need to clear the story mission "For an Outlaw Biker" and reach 10...

These are Nintendo's Black Friday 2019 deals for Switch

Nintendo is mostly focusing on big-hitters for Black Friday 2019 – Switch games that have, and will, continue to sell well for years to come. Case in point: the main hardware bundle this year is a $300 Nintendo Switch console that thr...

There's still a glimmer of hope for Deep Down

In my imagination, Deep Down was an incredible dungeon-crawling RPG from Capcom. It came out on PlayStation 4 as originally intended, we all played it, we all loved it, the public discourse shifted a few months later to suddenly deem it "ov...

It's update day for Dead Cells. Along with an optional "mini biome," the Corrupted Update adds an exciting "meta upgrade" – Recycling Tubes – for players who have cleared the game on BC1. Come again? Yes, you had it right the fi...

Human: Fall Flat's ice level has snowboards and ski lifts

It's so nice to have a co-op game you know you can keep coming back to every few months. For me, lately, it's been Human: Fall Flat – a wobbly puzzle-platformer that lets you pal around in a silly physics playground. The game debuted ...

People are still making wild stuff in Dreams

If you could catch a two-second glimpse of random people's dreams, you'd see some real weird shit. That's also true of Dreams, the PlayStation 4 game from LittleBigPlanet maker Media Molecule. In this ten-minute montage assembled by YouTube...

The Art of Super Mario Odyssey would make a great gift

Has there been enough of a gap that you could head back into Super Mario Odyssey and experience it with mostly fresh eyes? I think I'm about at that point. Some key moments in the game – a certain musical number, a world fueled by pur...

Who's your starter Pokemon in Sword and Shield?

Some people don't like to pick out a starter Pokémon until they know dang well what they're in for further down the evolutionary line. Well, you don't have to wait any longer – a big (and entirely expected) leak happened less t...

Another ex-Rare developer has joined forces with Playtonic Games, the team behind Yooka-Laylee and its Impossible Lair follow-up. This time, it's none other than character artist Ed Bryan – the self-described "father" of Mumbo Jumbo a...

Layers of Fear VR wants you to step into a spooky mansion

Horror and virtual reality tend to go hand in hand, and while I've sleepwalked through some supposedly scary VR games that didn't end up being all that impactful even with an added sense of immersion, generally speaking, the genre suits the...

Echo isn't the only new character arriving with Overwatch 2. During the BlizzCon reveal, we also got a glimpse of another playable hero: none other than Sojourn. She's in! But Blizzard isn't saying any more. Sojourn has been on the peripher...
