Kentucky Route Zero Act IV is out right the heck now

Over three years ago, the surreal adventure game Kentucky Route Zero drifted out into the open road. Its dreamlike portrayal of rural America is something I and many others have been waiting to jump back into for quite some time. Devel...   read

PC Port Report: Zero Escape: Zero Time Dilemma

I'll admit, it feels a bit like heresy playing Zero Time Dilemma on a PC, especially considering, well, 999. I won't go into it any more than that for people who haven't played through the first game. I bought the original on a whim (o...   read

How do you feel about the Zero Escape series?

Now that it has three games under its belt (999, Virtue's Last Reward, Zero Time Dilemma), the Zero Escape series is kind of a big deal at this point. Okay, maybe it isn't selling gangbusters on say, Layton-levels, but after nearly sev...   read

Well, at least I know the boy doesn't die in The Last Guardian
