Insaniquarium still slaps in 2019

Ever hear someone name-drop an old video game and then immediately feel an irresistible impulse to stop what you're doing, seek it out, and see how well it holds up? Hey, me too. What a coincidence! Yesterday, in light of Frontier's upcomin...

Thatgamecompany's Sky gets a 30 minute trailer

It has been quite some time since we last heard about Thatgamecompany's Sky. I forgot it was even working on a new game, let alone a mobile one. I've associated the company with Sony for the better part of a decade thanks to its PS3 works. ...

Fight not for but as lingerie in Pan Pan

Hoo boy, this one's a doozy! Recently put up on Steam Greenlight is a game made surprisingly not in Japan, but by a guy in Taiwan. While most soft-core hentai games like Senran Kagura or Akiba's Trip focus on seeing and collecting...

Review: Pirate Pop Plus

[Update: Added the release date for the Wii U version of the game as well as notated that the game is cross-buy across Nintendo consoles.] Remember Buster Bros. (aka Pang outside of America)? It's that game where you walk back and...

Review: Demon Truck

Demon Truck released on Steam last week, and I've been trying to work my way through it ever since. It started life as an entry in the Ludum Dare game jam, where developers try to make a game within 48 hours. It's got an interesting control...

PopCap aims for the moon, ends up with Bejeweled Stars

It's actually been 6 years since Bejeweled 3 and a cool 15 since the series' first iteration, even if I still can't reliably spell Bejeweled correctly. One of the reasons King is worth $6 billion is its match-3 Candy Crush, which hadn...

Zynga might be worth less than its office

Zynga had a good run. A lot of people made a lot of money on shitty Facebook games. Now the company is looking to offload its 670,000 square foot headquarters in downtown San Francisco. Funny thing about that math, though. When Zynga bought...

 
 
Big Fish Legend photo

Game on Steam rumoured to have been stolen by seller

[Update: It appears as though this may well have been an unfortunate misunderstanding, as the save location on the version of Big Fish Legend available from Alawar actually mentions Igry.ru. This screenshot showing the location has been twe...

Slow Down, Bull is a strange one for Insomniac Games

When I think of Insomniac Games, a few titles come to mind: Ratchet and Clank, Spyro the (pre-Skylanders) Dragon, and Sunset Overdrive. The studio's new game, Slow Down, Bull, is not like those -- it's a smaller project for Steam inspired b...

Squids Odyssey review photo

Review: Squids Odyssey

Splatoon might be getting a lot of hype for Wii U squid battling, but it is not the first game featuring a squid squad to grace the console. Earlier this year, Squids made its jump from iOS to the Wii U with Squids Odyssey, and it even blaz...

Natsume's E3 2014 lineup sure is a lineup

Natsume has announced its complete E3 roster for next week, and while it's got a few high points, it's not impressing me too much. It's a strange mishmash of handheld games and iOS releases with a stray PSP game and Wii U property for good ...
