Risk of Rain's PS4 port is just what I was hoping for

It's only fitting that right as an exciting new roguelike enters my life and rekindles my interest in the genre, an old favorite comes calling. Lately, Risk of Rain has been eating up evenings that would otherwise be wasted on failed Enter ...   read

Heart Forth, Alicia sure is looking nice in these gifs

I'm not the only one on staff who's down for the metroidvania Heart Forth, Alicia. Darren graciously popped into chat today with a gif from the latest backer update and I was so enamored, I forgot to cull the post for notable tidbits. Hour...   read

Starbound's next big update takes it out of Early Access

I was quick to buy Starbound once it showed up on Steam Early Access, but I didn't stick with it for long out of fear that I'd tire myself with the basics before the game really came together. While the developers have made great strides si...   read

Review: Slain!

From the outside, Slain! looks like a metal-as-hell take on hack-and-slash titles. It shows well in gifs, especially. The art direction is gnarly and stands out from the technically-skilled-but-uninspired pixel artwork that has become so co...   read

Slain looks sufficiently intimidating in this launch trailer

Review: Deadbolt

As someone who was way into Risk of Rain, a tough side-scrolling shooter that only grew tougher as time ticked by, I should have believed its designers when they called their next game "extremely challenging." But after clearing the firs...   read

Whoa, where did Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight come from?

It's not every day I come across a cool-looking new game that turns out to be a part of a long-running series, but Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight is precisely that. It's the fourth installment in Bombservice's line of 2D action-platf...   read

I thought I was tired of roguelike platformers, but GoNNER suggests otherwise

As much as I don't think I need another super-tough platformer with roguelike elements in my life, maybe I do! I dig the unusual art and clickety-clackety sound design of GoNNER. Screenshots don't do the aesthetic much justice. This trailer...   read

Bloodstained development update offers 3D model glamour shots

Look, it's Bloodstained. While Ritual of the Night isn't quite the same when Iga himself isn't demonstrating the gameplay to you, I suppose it's nice to see tangible evidence of the game as a work in progress rather than heady ideal. This ...   read

Review: Cobalt

There's a movement these days of games going multiplayer-only, focusing on one aspect to make it as good as possible. Along with that comes the dissent, players who demand single-player content and developers who spend resources providing i...   read

Review: Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India
