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

Today's Furi patch addresses noisy PS4 fans and bugs

I love and sometimes loathe Furi, the tough twin-stick action/shooter title that released earlier this month from The Game Bakers. Every time I boot up my PlayStation 4, its icon is right there on the home screen, challenging me to get to w...   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

Hell yeah! Steam gets Earth Defense Force 4.1 next week

Energy Hook review

Necropolis review

Review: Necropolis

  Watch Video The "friends" argument in the critical side of gaming is an amusing one to partake in. "Aren't all games inherently better with friends?" people say. Well, no. There are of course varying degrees of success in which a game im...   read

Another studio could remaster Demon's Souls, says From Software

From Software's shift away from the Souls series to something else post-Dark Souls III is probably for the best, but damn do I still really want a remaster of Demon's Souls to happen. You too? Beyond better visuals and performance and not n...   read

Starbound exits Steam Early Access on July 22

I played too much Starbound too early, and as we inch closer to the next major update -- the one that'll push it out of Steam Early Access at long last -- that sentiment keeps coming up. A bunch of us want to give the extraterrestrial sandb...   read
