The casualties of WoW Classic's battle for authenticity

The year is 2019. The Amazon is on fire (the one with the trees), Disney owns Spider-Man, and World of Warcraft is coming out again. Well, not exactly. When vanilla WoW launched, Martha Stewart was convicted of a felony, Facebook had just l...

Review: Vicious Circle

With the release of Overwatch in 2016, the multiplayer shooter market was turned upside down. Going from a period where everything had a bunch of faceless military drones to a game with a cast of eccentric characters with distinct personali...

Review: Telling Lies

Sam Barlow is really on a roll. Although his work on a few Silent Hill entries (Origins, Shattered Memories) put him on the map, it was 2015's Her Story that made him a household name. Barlow did a hell of a lot more than just "bring back" ...

GRIS is an absolute dream on iOS

Taking a console or PC game and putting it on mobile isn't as easy as people may think. Getting it to run on high-end phones and tablets is certainly doable, but making it so the game is actually playable is where the challenge lies. Not ev...

Seven minutes of Streets of Rage 4 footage isn't enough

If it wasn't clear enough from my preview at PAX East this year, I'm eagerly anticipating Streets of Rage 4. Every new bit of information we get for the game just makes me want it more. I want to play it so badly that I might actually die ...

Microsoft confirms Gears Tactics for Xbox One

The Gears of War franchise got a lot of love at E3 2018. In addition to confirming the existence of Gears 5 (which no one thought was under debate), we also got the sort of satirical Gears Pop! and Gears Tactics confirmed as spin-offs for t...

Gotta Protectors Switch sequel will be coming west

Review: Oninaki

Tokyo RPG Factory has a track record. Now I can't really use a qualifier in that statement, because it's really hard to actually track! I dug I Am Setsuna, but a lot of people didn't. I thought Lost Sphear was alright, and some folks s...

Here's our first look at the XIII remake

Publisher Microids has the first look at its upcoming remake of cult classic shooter XIII and um...they're kind of basic? Let me be clear, I don't dislike what I'm looking at. It's interesting that this kind of drops the cel-shading style f...

Here's our first real look at the new Gungrave game

Developer Iggymob has been teasing a brand new Gungrave game since the tail-end of 2017, and I've been there every step of the way. Even something as insignificant as a logo, a vague non-gameplay story trailer, or concept art, and I'm pouri...

Another Warhammer 40,000 game is coming to consoles

Although my Warhammer 40K tabletop experience has slowed to "infrequent" status this past year, I've played hundreds of hours of it in my lifetime, to the point where I can instantly recognize any unit that pops up in a game. I had that fee...
