Let's watch a long-ass Prey gameplay video

Actually, that headline's kind of disingenuous. You see, I am intentionally not going to watch this long-ass Prey video. Still, I'm posting it without any sort of vetting process. There could be hardcore porn spliced right into t...   read

The Surge is doing its sci-fi action-RPG thing in May

"The Surge" isn't just something you'll find in a stuck-in-time pizza joint's soda fountain -- it's also an upcoming sci-fi action-RPG from Deck13. Has the studio learned some hard lessons from its 2014 release Lords of the Fallen? I'd sure...   read

Three NieR: Automata deals available for the PC release

NieR: Automata has arrived finally on the PC and the fanfare looks to be justified as early reception is positive and Plantium Games as of writing has been quick to address PC port issues (such as a 4K support issue that cropped up earlier ...   read

Super Bomberman R's input lag and smooth online update is out

Super Bomberman R could use some fundamental improvements when it comes to its campaign and multiplayer arena selection, but for now, you'll have to settle with some performance tweaks. Konami has announced that version 1.2 is now live...   read

Guerrilla Games is working on more Horizon Zero Dawn story content

Nidhogg 2 might look strange, but it plays like a dream

Nidhogg 2 makes a funny first impression. The game's new look is a bit brutish compared the sleek minimalism of its predecessor, and the expanded arsenal -- which includes a dagger, bow, and broadsword -- steers away from the elegance of ra...   read

Shenmue III progress update shows QTE testing

Remember "QTE Expert" from the You Arcade in Shenmue? You did play Shenmue didn't you? Not only did the game basically invent and focus on QTE's, but it even had a mini-game in the arcade that was about as literal a QTE as you can get,...   read

These are the new PvP arenas for Dark Souls III

Even if you aren't keen on the idea of more player-versus-player arenas in Dark Souls III, let this pair of videos serve as a reminder that, oh yeah, the second and final DLC for the game isn't far off. The Ringed City is out on March 28, a...   read

Someone already nabbed the reward for getting all 900 of Zelda's Korok seeds

Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a huge game. There's a colossal conflict, a giant open world, a tremendous amount of side activity -- it's impressive in both its scale and scope. There's one task that stands out as significantly more daun...   read

Furi's new boss fight DLC is out today alongside a PS4 patch

There's a reason to revisit the boss fight gauntlet Furi this week if you're on PC or PlayStation 4, as those versions of the game have gotten a new boss, The Flame, who was previously only accessible to Xbox One players. He's a part of th...   read

Bloodborne's Lady Maria is getting a $600 Japan-exclusive statue

Even if she's a character from the lone DLC for Bloodborne, Lady Maria pops up quite a bit in discussions and random artwork for the game. She's recognizable, is what I'm saying, and is probably easier to craft into a statue than a giant li...   read

Review: Styx: Shards of Darkness

The last time I played Dungeons and Dragons, I ended up in the shoes of a nasty gnome thief. A cocksure little prick who valued gold over the life expectancy of his friends, never took a shot that wasn't cheap, and would gleefully steal any...   read

Meet Jaal, a squadmate from one of Mass Effect: Andromeda's few new alien races

It seems as though a lot about Mass Effect: Andromeda will feel familiar. Even though there's an entire universe to draw from, the cast will be mostly the same. Humans, Turians, Salarians, Krogans, Asari -- those are the folks we can ...   read

Forget hardcore mode, Pylon: Rogue is just plain hardcore

Reading the name Pylon: Rogue before heading into this preview gave me a few ideas. What if this was about a rogue traffic cone who, while kids are crossing the street, decides to move and cause a horrible accident? I may need psychological...   read

You won't be hacking and slashing much in the first hour of Dragon Quest Heroes 2

I’ve actually never played a Dragon Quest game before. I know of the series and some of its creatures, but my largest piece of knowledge is about how an elderly Japanese actress wanted to play IX before she died. To say I walked int...   read

I would love to see Platinum Games take on Base Wars

With an outstanding score on Metacritic and a 9/10 from our own Chris Carter, NieR: Automata has proven once again that Platinum Games is one of the best developers in the game today. So much so that seemingly every time people talk about P...   read

ELEX is odd and janky, but totally open

Breath of the Wild has given me a whole new appreciation for open-world games. I love the amount of freedom you have in tackling the quest (or not bothering with it) and the order in which you can tackle it. While games like Grand Theft Aut...   read

Redeemer is brutal, bloody, and old-school

I’ve always had a fondness for classic beat-'em-ups. Games like Turtles in Time and Final Fight are favorites of mine and getting newer, more modern takes on the genre is usually an easy success. Sure, we get a dud every now and the...   read

Action RPG 'The Caligula Effect' comes west in May
