Contest: Win Journey to the Savage Planet on Steam

In today's contest you can win Journey to the Savage Planet on Steam! I almost typed out Journey to the Sausage Planet, which would be pretty funny, but not quite accurate. It's Journey to the Savage Planet, and it just hit Steam! That mean...

In today's contest you can win tricky platforming title Blue Fire for Switch or Steam! Can you believe it's already February? I can't. We thought we were clear of 2020, but as it turns out, the world is still kind of on fire! Well, let's fe...

Is Marvel's Avengers still salvageable for you?

Can Marvel's Avengers even afford the "Real Reborn Treatment?" Will people come back if it does miraculously get it? These are things I wonder at random moments whenever I see the icon flash across my PS5 menu. Marvel's Avengers w...

Review: Cyber Shadow

It feels like just yesterday that Yacht Club Games was formed: now it's publishing stuff. Our little shovel studio is growing up! The first publishing duty on the docket? Cyber Shadow.

Review: Dead Cells: Fatal Falls

It only took a single (unsuccessful) stab at Dead Cells for me to get back in the swing of things and boy does this game still feel fantastic. Its sense of ferocity and flow is up there with the best of 'em. I didn't just boot up Dead Cells...

Who owns the Astral Chain IP? Nintendo, says Platinum

I'm not shy about my love for Astral Chain. Sure it's not going to appeal to everyone, but it's one of my favorite action romps in recent years, and a very great effort from first-time director Takahisa Taura. I was not only excited to...

Here's how to unlock Dead Cells' flying pet sword Serenade

Outside of the new levels and boss in Fatal Falls, the DLC's flashiest addition has got to be Serenade – a talkative pet sword who hovers around, marking enemies for critical hits. It's the Brutality equivalent of the other two s...

That kooky action-RPG Biomutant releases May 25

After what feels like several wellness checks, Biomutant has a release date for PC, PS4, and Xbox One: May 25, 2021. If you were expecting a Nintendo Switch version, THQ Nordic didn't bring it up today. Biomutant is part melee action, part...

Nioh 2: The Complete Edition seems fine enough on PC

After pouring easily hundreds of hours into Nioh 2 and its three DLC packs on PS4, it's admittedly been pretty jarring to start a fresh save on PC – even if I'm only here for preview purposes right now. I had forgotten just how lethal...

Review: Hitman 3

Man I'm glad that IO Interactive was able to bail from a potential destruction of their studio with a buyout. It was really touch and go there for a bit, but they did it, and Hitman (among a few other IPs) came along for the ride....

Here's a good long look at Nioh 2 Remastered running on PS5

A rapidly-moving action-RPG like Nioh 2 needs to be as crisp, fluid, and legible as possible, and I'd say Team Ninja is in a good place with next month's Nioh 2 Remastered for PlayStation 5. The studio shared 14 minutes of uninterrupted foo...

Roguelite action-platformer Skul made it through Early Access

We haven't covered Skul: The Hero Slayer much before, but I've been keeping tabs on the head-swapping action-platformer for a while now. Today's the day to check in: it's out of Steam Early Access. While I wouldn't directly compare the two...
