No Man's Sky active userbase plummets on PC

While No Man's Sky seems to be a day-one success, especially by indie standards, everything that's happened after launch hasn't been all that promising. In addition to just about total radio silence from Hello Games about what happened to s...   read

After nearly four months, VVVVVV is back on the 3DS eShop

Well this took a while. Back in May, Terry Cavanagh's VVVVVV was pulled from the 3DS eShop due to a homebrew exploit issue. It was kind of just...dormant for months, until finally popping back up this week. It seems to be fixed, and as a re...   read

Sakurai had a ton of trouble gathering different Pokemon voices for Smash Bros.

Pokemon is such a massive property now, there are a ton of hoops to jump through. For one you have Nintendo and Game Freak, who both are part owners in The Pokemon Company entity. Then there's the localization problems given the worldw...   read

EA has announced the season pass for Battlefield 1, and it looks like it's going to run you $50 for four expansions. The first of which is due in March 2017 (five months after the game is released, so maybe wait before buying it?), titled "...   read

Pokemon Go's new IV-like appraisal update is pretty basic

Yesterday's update description for Pokemon Go was light, but most of us veteran Pokemon players kind of scratched our heads and said...did Niantic just add an IV mechanic to Go? Well, no. Initially excited to try out the new "appr...   read

Berserk Musou adds a playable Wyald to its ranks

Berserk is getting yet another playable character in the form of Wyald, a demonic beast-like entity that appeared in the manga, but not the TV show or films. Much like Zodd, he's capable of transforming into his bestial form based on t...   read

The second Nioh beta is out today, with a new DLC to unlock

Nioh has rapidly shot up my "most anticipated" list. While Team Ninja is a hit or miss studio in a post-Itagaki world (who is also hit or miss these days!), it seemed to really nail it with this one. It helps that we've gotten not one,...   read

Pokemon Go gets an actual feature added, not taken away, in new update

Niantic has been supporting Pokemon Go at a sluggish pace, taking away more features than adding them this past month in a half. But yesterday it notified us of an update that's coming in the form of version 0.35.0 on both iO...   read

No Man's Sky 'LowFlight' mod takes the game off the rails

No Man's Sky, as we talked about previously, is a fun chill little game, but over time you'll start to notice its blemishes. For instance, on-planet flight can feel really clunky, almost like an afterthought (having to refuel every minute b...   read

Pokemon Go draws massive, scary Taiwan crowds

Pokemon Go is still big in Taiwan, and man is it insane. Most of the more popular Go areas around me are ghost towns at this point with just a dedicated few left, but these images verified by the Eastern Broadcasting Company show massive cr...   read

Maid cafes CONFIRMED for Persona 5

What did you think of the Titanfall 2 beta?

Excuse me while I go play Shadow of the Colossus yet again

Fire Emblem was originally going to crossover with Pokemon before Conquest ruined it

Review: Worms W.M.D
