Hollow Knight now has a second team to help speed up the Switch port

I really like the idea of playing a metroidvania game like Hollow Knight on Nintendo Switch, even if there's a significant wait involved. Some good news on that front: Team Cherry has "taken a big step to speed things up" by working with an...   read

Review: The Surge

The first few minutes of The Surge are nothing if not evocative. It begins on a shuttle. Warren, the game's protagonist, sits idly as the car marches forward. He's a gruff, vaguely plain-looking man; the kind of guy whose worn and tired fea...   read
