These are the Nioh 2 character contest winners

I'm going to spend entirely too long tuning my Nioh 2 character. That's just the way it is. If you'd rather embark on the yokai-busting adventure sooner than later, you may want to pick a preset character. Last year, Team Ninja held a conte...

Review: Journey to the Savage Planet

It's presumptuous to make this call so early into 2020, but here goes: Journey to the Savage Planet stands a very real chance of being one of my most pleasant surprises in video games this year. I came in with little to no expectations &nda...

Revenant took out Forge in Apex Legends

Respawn Entertainment just went ahead and killed off Forge, an unlikable big lug planned for Apex Legends Season 4, so that Revenant – a freaky skeletal robot – can bask in the spotlight again. The promo site for Assimilation, t...

Dark Souls II looks better than ever with this lighting mod

Even if Dark Souls II didn't turn out quite the way I expected, I have a lot of love for the sequel. It's an enchanting, beautiful, ugly, gratifying, surprisingly deep, and occasionally infuriating video game, all at once. Plenty of Souls f...

GOG's PC game deals for Lunar New Year are worth a peek

New year, new sales. If you're looking to pick up some PC games right now, you're in luck. GOG has around 1,500 deals in its Lunar New Year sale, a humbling reminder that there are entirely too many video games to keep track of, much less p...

I really hope Housemarque's new game is a PS5 launch title

Nioh 2 will have three DLC packs just like the first game

Depending on how far you fell down the New Game+ rabbit hole, Nioh was the kind of game you could play for months, if not years, and still have an extensive to-do list left to chip away at. Nioh 2 is bound to be another huge time-sink, and ...

Will 2020 be the year we all become head-over-heels obsessed with Hades? I'm not quite at that point yet, but Supergiant Games' mythological roguelike action title has only grown more compelling with each passing update. The latest Early Ac...

Try as you might, you can't escape FTL: Faster Than Light – not for good. One decent run is all it takes to reel you in and remind you just how potent Subset Games' ship-managing roguelike title can be. In 2020, Subset is still breath...
