Heroes of the Storm developers talk hero balance and map design

As you may have seen, Auriel is set to debut in Heroes of the Storm in the near future, and she looks like one interesting, and technical addition. So that got me thinking -- how does the team approach balancing, should she turn into a...   read

Those Dead Rising remasters look less blurry

Listings for the three recently-announced Dead Rising remasters have appeared on the Xbox Store, and on top of including the first round of rather compressed screenshots (DR1 is noticeably more crisp than the Xbox 360 original), they mentio...   read

Sonic's appearance in LEGO Dimensions still looks weird

"This fall," Sonic will make his way into LEGO Dimensions, and we thankfully won't need to buy a whole new game to experience him -- just the Sonic LEGO set. And during its 25th anniversary Sonic event last weekend they showed som...   read

Medieval mouse adventure Ghost of a Tale hits Steam Early Access

Ghost of a Tale has looked captivating for quite some time, and although it still isn't done yet, the gorgeous stealth-centric action-RPG is now playable through Steam Early Access. It's getting there. "While the game's core mechanics are ...   read

You won't need PlayStation Plus for No Man's Sky

While No Man's Sky is technically being sold as a "single-player" experience, if you've been following the space exploration game these past few years, you know that it will have online interaction. At a minimum, you'll be able to name alie...   read

 
 
Quadrilateral Cowboy
  Watch Video Well, it's finally here. After playing through the brief-yet-amazing Gravity Bone and Thirty Flights of Loving, the third game has arrived. Don't be fooled, though -- Quadrilateral Cowboy stands alone in what it accomplishes. Not only does it stand alone from the other two games, but it stands alone from pretty much anything else in the industry.   read

No Obsidian is still a bummer, but South Park: The Fractured But Whole looks great

I was sad to hear at its E3 announcement last year that Obsidian, who developed the original South Park RPG, was not returning for Fractured But Whole (it's actually Ubisoft San Francisco and South Park Digital Studios handling the sequel) ...   read

Even a short movie of the Kojima Productions logo is enough to get me excited

It's crazy how quickly Hideo Kojima got back on his feet after being utterly destroyed, both professionally and mentally, but Konami. But he did it, and hot damn Kojima Production is already doing some amazing things. Over the weekend they ...   read

 
 
Heroes of the Storm
  Watch Video I had a chance to sit with Blizzard and chat about Heroes of the Storm's upcoming Auriel, and she seems to be in really good hands. Although Medivh is a specialist that has undertones of a support, a true healer hasn't been added since October (Morales) -- so you could say it's been a while. It remains to be seen if she can solo heal competitively, but for now, her kit looks really fun to play.   read

Blizzard: 'We're looking at adding even more from Overwatch' to Heroes of the Storm

A little over three months ago, Blizzard transplanted Overwatch's Tracer into Heroes of the Storm. Although she came in with an astronomical winrate that was one of the highest in the history of the game she's been balanced since then,...   read

CD Projekt Red is hoping that Sony will open up console cross-platform play

Opening up cross-platform play was such a huge and funny move by Microsoft. After years of turning it down and being the market leader during the 360 era, they've now put the decision in Sony's charge. If Sony somehow decides it wants to gi...   read

Headlander review
  Watch Video Headlander knows what it is but doesn't know what it wants to be. The tutorial gives you a singular impression -- this game is a puzzler with light action elements, à la The Fall (a comparison I was unable to...   read

Review: Hawken

  Watch Video Hawken is a game I keep checking back in on. When it originally released back in 2012, it seemed ahead of its time, a free-to-play shooter with AAA production values featuring mech combat. For someone who is both cheap and a ...   read
