Contest: The Dead Don't Die, and neither do our giveaways

Today's contest sees the dead rise again in a Blu-ray copy of The Dead Don't Die. Man, zombies just don't die. I mean, they do kinda, but I meant the zombie genre. In both movies and gaming it's still going pretty strong, despite being a ma...

Review: Astral Chain

When Astral Chain kicked off with a janky vehicle section, I was worried. Then the toilet fairy came. Then the insane mechanical depth we'd expect out of Platinum. Then I got to moonlight as an office mascot named Lappy who helped out ...

Risk of Rain 2 just popped up on Switch, PS4, and Xbox One

Risk of Rain 2 is a super fun roguelike. I want to give it more of my free time. But, given that it's still making its way through Steam Early Access, my play sessions have been sporadic at best. I don't want to spread it too thin too early...

Here's our first real look at the new Gungrave game

Developer Iggymob has been teasing a brand new Gungrave game since the tail-end of 2017, and I've been there every step of the way. Even something as insignificant as a logo, a vague non-gameplay story trailer, or concept art, and I'm pouri...
