Paradigm is a point-'n'-click game starring sloths and mutants

While adventure games are doing as well as ever, there's still not too many that hark back to the classic era games like Day of the Tentacle. They used to be really weird! Jacob Janerka's Paradigm seems to emulate that style well. It's set...   read

Review: Hatoful Boyfriend

Moving to a new school always sucks. You need worry to about grades, pick classes, join a club, try to find new friends, and fit into an existing social hierarchy.  Imagine that but with the added confusion of all your schoolmates bein...   read

Rejoice, Europeans as you get to experience The Evil Within early

As someone living in the UK, it's super frustrating to see notifications pop up on a console or Steam showing my North American friends playing new releases when I usually have to wait a few more days to get my hands on the same game. Well,...   read

Left 4 Dead 2 on PC is finally reclassified as R18+ in Australia

As a former Australian resident, one thing I don't miss there was the lack of an R18+ rating for videogames; despite the fact that the R18+ rating has now been introduced, there have still been cuts to games like South Park: The Stick of Tr...   read

You've got 4 days to buy 35 games from GOG.com before they're gone

One of the assumptions of buying games digitally is that you assume they'll always be available. That's sadly not the case, but GOG.com is offering discounts on 35 games that it will be removing from its catalog on September 2.  A...   read

Watch this crafty space pirate avoid the cops in Elite: Dangerous

Remember kids, crime doesn't pay. That is unless you find illicit liquor floating in space and decided to slowly sneak into a space station without the cops seeing you. In which case, it very much pays. YouTube user Isinona has been playin...   read

A Fistful of Gun is a chaotic, top-down, Western shooter

I appreciate how a publisher like Devolver Digital can put out games as different as Hotline Miami 2 and Hatoful Boyfriend within a few months, as well as this neat top-down shooter A Fistful of Gun. The game looks like a colorful, hec...   read

Anyone surprised to hear 92% of all PC game sales are digital?

To the surprise of probably no one, it looks like the vast majority of PC games that are sold are through digital channels. PC site PCR has been told by analyst DFC Intelligence that in 2013, 92% of games sold were digital, while physical s...   read

The Humble Jumbo Bundle includes Terraria, Deadlight, and more

The Humble Bundle is always good value for money but it differs for person to person; is it worth buying a bundle that includes several games you already own? Maybe, but I know I'll be getting the new Humble Jumbo Bundle for sure. It's stru...   read

A Sacred 3 developer apologizes for the game

Sacred 3 wasn't a very well received game; I felt it was an average and uninspired hack-'n'-slash game with some terrible attempts at humor. Comments on my review either sided on "hey, it's not too bad in co-op," to "this is a stain on the ...   read

Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 declares 'the pitch is ours' in November

I'll be honest, I haven't played a Pro Evolution Soccer game since the PlayStation 2 days but after the series lagged behind EA's FIFA juggernaut for the last few years, I'm keen to try the series again on a current-gen platform. PES 2015 w...   read

Phil Spencer wants the Xbox One to 'win' this generation's console war

The idea of the console war -- that the big console makers are locked in this all-or-nothing struggle for hearts and minds -- has gotten sillier as I've gotten older. Still, Xbox head honcho Phil Spencer has told Game Informer he wants to w...   read

Hideo Kojima not keen on remaking his previous games

Considering most of the Metal Gear Solid games have been re-released in various fashions over the years, it's surprising that Hideo Kojima isn't too keen on remaking his older games. When asked at Konami's Metal Gear Solid V event today in ...   read

This Forza Horizon 2 trailer uses the word 'social' too much
