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 ...

Duck Game is still coming to Nintendo Switch

The slapstick humor of Duck Game always puts a smile on my face and I'm absolutely down to play it again on Nintendo Switch. While the Switch port was ever-so-briefly announced in an indie showcase video a year ago (just the logo was shown)...

PS4 players can now go through SOMA in Safe Mode

Last year, Frictional Games thoughtfully added a Safe Mode to its underwater sci-fi horror game SOMA on PC and Xbox One. The idea was to let players take in the story (which is the highlight of the whole experience, by far) without worrying...

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 ...

Cities: Skylines is landing mods this week on Xbox One

Mods appear so infrequently in console games that whenever they do pop up, I feel like a quick little shout-out of encouragement is in order. This time, we're talking Cities: Skylines -- the Xbox One version is getting its first batch of pl...

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...

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...

What the Golf? is everything I love about sports games

What the Golf? bills itself as "the golf game for people who don't play golf." It's spot on. One quick scroll through this gif-filled about page is all you'll need to know if this is your type of silly, experimental take on sports. You can ...

Virtuos is handling the Switch port of Dark Souls: Remastered

Every so often I remember that we're getting a remaster of Dark Souls in May and I just have to smile. In the case of the Nintendo Switch version, it's come to light (courtesy of the Australian Classification Board) that Virtuos is handling...

The Overwatch League is getting a more reasonable schedule

Last Saturday was such a great day for competitive Overwatch. The Overwatch League held its Stage 1 Finals and as a fan of London Spitfire, there sure were some highs and lows. The team lost to New York Excelsior early in the day only to gr...
