Marvel creative director says the Ultimate Alliance mess is getting cleaned up

With almost superhero-like speed -- almost -- Marvel has rushed in to rectify the Ultimate Alliance fiasco. Earlier this week, the last-gen action games were re-released on current platforms. It didn't go swimmingly. There are ple...   read

Start your weekend off right with lots of Gravity Rush 2 gameplay

Hot damn, more Gravity Rush 2 footage to watch? Don't mind if I do. This stuff comes by way of the "Gravity-Tsu" stream that took place last week, archived lovingly by Sony. It's 25 minutes in all, you just want to fast forward to 17:0...   read

Wild Guns Reloaded still looks dope, especially with its playable dachshund

We knew Wild Guns Reloaded was coming to the PS4 in the fall, but we didn't have a good idea of what it exactly entailed outside of a re-creation of the original. But this week Natsume spilled the beans, and man, those beans taste grea...   read

The Marvel Ultimate Alliance re-releases are reportedly junk

Folks are not happy with the re-releases of the two Marvel: Ultimate Alliance games -- just check out the overwhelmingly negative Steam pages. Complaints range from basic stuff like not being able to remap keys, to controller issues, to gen...   read

Yooka-Laylee is already amazing and it's just in pre-alpha

Today, the Yooka-Laylee Toybox was released for backers (note: I'm in that group), providing a brief look at the game by way of a pre-alpha sandbox. It's...glorious.   read

Okhlos is the mythological mob simulator I didn't know I wanted

Okhlos from Coffee Powered Machine is the next wacky and wild game out of indie publisher Devolver Digital. Have you heard about it yet? You should hear about it. How does right now work? In theory, it's a game that fundamentally gets me. P...   read

We're getting Yakuza 0 on January 24

Let's remember Marvel: Ultimate Alliance

It may seem impossible now, but in the mid-2000s (double-ohs? aughts?) superheroes weren't everywhere. They were on their way, though. X-Men (2000) and Spider-Man (2002) were box office hits as the world collectively thought "Hey,...   read

Oh hey, the original Darksiders is coming to current-gen consoles too

Whenever I incite the debate of which Darksiders is a better game, it usually gets pretty heated, and seems split down the middle. But even though I do prefer the sequel, the first one is still a welcome return to old school Zelda ...   read

Medieval mouse adventure Ghost of a Tale hits Steam Early Access

Review: Epistory - Typing Chronicles

It's not often a game forces the player to learn a new control scheme. The dual-stick setup of most modern controllers and the WASD keyboard layout are established as as a standard at this point, so a game needs a very good reason to stray ...   read

It's time to give Starbound another look

This Mafia III live action trailer ruins a perfectly good suit

Lincoln Clay doesn't really give a damn if you're a fashionista; he has no problem ruining your threads. A bullet hole and blood all over your snazzy white suit? There's no coming back from that. All the club soda in the world won't make a...   read

Nioh sure has some ugly demons

Good news: Team Ninja's Nioh will have another playable demo on PlayStation 4. Bad news: this so-called "beta demo" won't appear until August 23, and like the alpha build before it, we'll only be able to test it out for a limited time. Come...   read

Review: God Eater Resurrection

It's been quite a long time since Bandai Namco first threw its hat into the monster-hunting ring with God Eater, and since then the landscape has changed. Monster Hunter itself moved to the Nintendo 3DS, a whole new generation of conso...   read

Star Fox Zero now has a low key demo on the Wii U eShop

I liked Star Fox Zero more than most, and I'm perfectly okay with that. I know some of you couldn't get used to the control scheme and didn't dig some of the difficulty spikes, but it only took me a few hours to acclimate -- and althou...   read

Mafia III protagonist's life has been anything but a cakewalk

We know that Mafia III's Lincoln Clay hasn't had it easy. He's a black man in the American south during the 1960s (a struggle that developer Hangar 13 hopes to do justice with its New Bordeaux setting). He's also a Vietnam veteran. Oh yeah...   read

Team Ninja's Nioh returns with a beta demo on August 23

Team Ninja's action-RPG Nioh messed me up in all the right ways, and ever since the alpha demo period ended, I've been eager to get back into its gloomy, oppressive, oni-filled world for round two. If you missed out on your chance back in A...   read

Berserk Warriors is getting a playable Schierke and Serpico

It's nice to finally move out of the Golden Age era of Berserk. Oh, it's wonderful, don't get me wrong, but I've experienced it for the past 20 years or so and would love for the series to move forward beyond the manga. And with the brand n...   read
