PC Port Report: Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom

Ni No Kuni II is a charming RPG where the president of some great human nation gets blown up by a missile and transported to a magical world of talking rats and half-cat kings, armed only with a bitchin' ponytail and a handgun. On paper, it...


Paratopic is an enigmatic, haunting little game

Paratopic sticks with you. It's the kind of game that lingers, haunting the dark corners of your mind after its credits roll. There's something off about it in a delightful way; the atmospheric fever dream of low-poly horror imagery sh...


Helltown is a special mix of low-poly horror

If you've been paying attention to the games I write about here, then you've probably noticed that I gravitate towards low-poly games with weird art. If it looks like it was created twenty years ago, I'm in. I love that chunky stuff; I can'...

Days Gone, the PlayStation 4-exclusive game about bikers and hordes of zombies, won't make its planned 2018 release window. According to a statement made by Sony to USGamer, the open-world title has been delayed until 2019. Days Gone debute...


Happy Friday. I'm now officially on Spring Break. That's one whole week without stupid papers to write! To celebrate, I want to give someone a Steam copy of FTL. First person to reply with their Steam id (so i can send it) gets the game. <3


Where the Water Tastes Like Wine's writing is so good it almost makes me mad. Please play this game:23 people contributed to it, pulling from folklore and US history. It's beautiful. Also, you can read my review on the FP, but my words don't do it justice


Review: Where the Water Tastes Like Wine

America's backbone is built from stories shared over campfires. Every road is a vein, snaking and winding across state lines, paved by tall tales and folklore. This land isn't perfect, but it means something to its inhabitants. The stories ...


Review: Gleaner Heights

There's beauty in the farmer's routine. Every day revolves around a taxing schedule. Each row of crops requires watering, animals need to be fed and produce needs to be prepared for market, all before the sun rises high in the sky. Reaping ...


Review: Rust

There's a fatalistic cycle at the heart of Rust. Every life begins the same. Players spawn on the shores of an uncaring island, naked and ill-equipped to make it through the day. Every life ends the same, too: with the clinical inevitabilit...


It's friday. I've been down in the dumps lately. So lemme try and do something nice: Who wants a closed alpha key for Hunt: Showdown. First reply gets it, just make sure your computer can handle it!


Review: The Red Strings Club

Brandeis is plummeting towards the ground. It's silent as he falls; the city he worked so hard to save has gone to sleep, blissfully unaware that the hacker will meet his end face-down on the pavement. Though his life will be over shortly, ...


SOS turns battle royales into performance art

I am not the funny friend. I'm not a performer, either. In any social situation, I'm good for either two half-decent jokes or one drunken cover of "She Hates Me" if I can get my hands on a karaoke mic. Suffice to say that whatever muse insp...


finally made it to Heavensward. Final Fantasy is a good, good game yall


Cult classic horror game Yume Nikki now on Steam

Indie horror hit Yume Nikki landed on Steam yesterday, fourteen years after its initial release. The cult classic's lauded for its dreamy, surreal environment and non-traditional approach to gameplay.  It's easy to talk about how biza...


Bosses roam from room to room in this twin-stick shooter

Renegade Sector Games has a knack for playing with perspective. The indie developer's previous offering, Cold Vengeance, was a 3D shoot 'em up that riffed on the genre standards with low camera angles and branching paths. For its follow-up...


Ray Porreca's personal picks for Game of the Year 2017

Take a deep breath. If you're reading this, congratulations. The holidays have come and gone, and we're one step closer to leaving 2017 in the dust. It hasn't been an easy year, but here we are: alive, tougher, and desperate for some rest. ...


Enter the Gungeon rolls onto Switch next week

Enter the Gungeon is coming to the Nintendo Switch next week. According to an update from the game's official Twitter account, the Devolver Digital-published roguelike will be available in North America on December 14. In addition to t...
