Review: Hob

I very much enjoyed Runic Games' past Torchlight titles and was excited when I heard they were going to tackle another genre. Good developers can make good games, regardless of their perceived "niche." The action-adventure genre could ...

Mecha-Zangief in Dead Rising 4 seems like a good idea

Here's a little more on Capcom Heroes, a free new mode in the works for Dead Rising 4 that'll let you don special costumes based on characters from other Capcom series. Last time, I was stoked to see Sissel from Ghost Trick. This time I'm a...

Another cool looking Zelda inspired RPG is coming to Switch

Switch port when? Well, if you had asked that around the launch of the system, the chances of nearly every game you could possibly want to play getting ported was rather slim. But now, every developer and their grandma is eager to get on th...

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 should be chaotic fun

We knew Fatshark had started work on a sequel to Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide, but today the studio has much more to show for its four-player cooperative action game. The Skaven hordes are back, as expected, along with another threat: ...

Review: The Foreigner

It’s been a while since we’ve seen Jackie Chan in US cinemas, especially as a lead, and I for one, am happy to have him back. Think on it for a moment:  Jackie Chan is still one the world’s biggest stars (currently ra...

Review: Middle-earth: Shadow of War

The word Mordor is so intrinsically linked to my experience of the "Middle-earth" action series that I simply can't escape it from my mind. I've typed "Shadow of Mordor" so many times it hurts, despite the fact that the sequel is indeed cal...

See how Fire Emblem Warriors stacks up to Hyrule Warriors

Hyrule Warriors might go down as one of my favorite Warriors games. The character variety is just so on point, as are the locales and the map mode -- one of the best postgame events in all of hack and slash-dom. That's why I'm so anxious to...

New Star Control screenshots and Founders Program

Star Control II is one of the best games ever made. Getting that out of the way, I was pretty happy when Stardock announced last year that they would be reviving the series. The original creators Paul Reiche and Fred Ford will not be d...

Dead Rising 4's new mode looks real silly

Sometimes, all it takes is an image. "That's it. I'm writing this up. Folks need to see." This screenshot of Frank West pulling off his best Sissel-from-Ghost Trick impression is one such example. What's going on here? The Dead Rising seri...

Iron Galaxy's ogre-slaying action game Extinction looks slick

This is my first time seeing Extinction, Iron Galaxy's action game about fending off giant ogres, and what an intro! The announcement a few months back was only a cinematic trailer, but today is all about gameplay. The scale of the monsters...

It's the perfect time to start fresh in Dark Souls

For way too long now I've been telling myself I'm overdue for a fresh run through Bloodborne, but it looks like I'll need to postpone those plans yet again. The Dark Souls reddit community is starting its three-week "Return to Lordran" even...

Cuphead looks right at home on this old television

Playing Cuphead has made me want to seek out and watch a bunch of the 1930s cartoons from which it draws inspiration, but in the mean time, here's a real cool semi-related thing: YouTube user Lazy Game Reviews has hooked the game up to disp...

Even Nioh is coming to PC

The PC bandwagon grows ever larger. More and more Japanese role-playing games, typically exclusive to PlayStation consoles, are getting Steam releases. This time is Koei Tecmo's Nioh, whose complete edition will launch on Steam November 7, ...

I'm excited to watch Hidden Agenda

At E3 2017, Until Dawn developer Supermassive Games seemingly simultaneously announced Bravo Team, Inpatient, and Hidden Agenda. We didn't cover Hidden Agenda much, so to catch you up it's a story driven game with choices and quick-ti...

Review: Pylon: Rogue

Roguelikes are becoming a hot commodity in gaming. What was once a unique way to experience an old genre is now a common indie crutch to pad out an otherwise thin experience. We’ve seen absolute classics utilize elements from roguelik...
