Gorn is the perfect name for this ridiculous gladiator sim

Gorn is a good-ass name for a video game about clobbering buff gladiators until their meaty heads fall off. Honestly, I'm not sure it can be topped (that's your cue to do your thing in the comments, gang). This is another collaboration bet...

Devolver Digital is doing an E3 press conference

There are plenty of press conferences at E3 as it is, but if we've got to make room for another company, it might as well be Devolver Digital. Details are sparse, but it's happening. 2017 is the year. Devolver tends to bring cool, oftentim...

Melee combat game Absolver still looks intriguing

Sloclap and Devolver Digital are bringing the online-centric combat game Absolver to PC and PlayStation 4 on August 29, 2017. I still mostly know this game as "the one with fisticuffs and funny masks," but you might remember Zack drawing co...

Review: STRAFE

My first look at STRAFE was from Destructoid back in 2015. When a successful Kickstarter had funded the game, I became intrigued by a marketing gimmick that centered heavily on "Bleeding Edge Graphics for 1996." I love shooters and 1996 was...

Ape Out will put a smile on your face in these dark times

When I say that Ape Out is a fun little game, I'm not being insulting. The first couple months of 2017 have smothered players with boundless open world games like Nier: Automata, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, or Ghost Recon ...

Strafe sidesteps its release date, jumps back to May

Strafe and all its hyper-violent, low-polygon action will have to wait for a bit. The procedurally-generated first-person viscera simulator is being delayed by just a little more than a month. Publisher Devolver Digital sent out a pre...

Minit is a charming indie version of Majora's Mask

Minit is like Majora's Mask; Minit is like Groundhog Day; Minit is like Westworld from the robots' perspective; Minit is like that one episode of Supernatural, that one episode of Doctor Who, that one ...

I thought I was prepared, but Ruiner totally cyberpunk'd me

Do you fancy a challenge? Do you long for the thrill of near-death and the subsequent feeling of satisfaction perfectly accentuated by the sinking rag doll of your enemies? Are you like me? If you are, then you want that challenge. You want...

Devolver Digital's latest is '60-second adventure' Minit

Knowing that Devolver Digital was repping Minit even before I clicked play on this trailer, I figured there had to be some twist, some other point of interest beyond the Downwell-looking low-fidelity aesthetic. Well, it's right there in th...

Strafe is gunning for a March release date

Strafe, the retro-themed throwback shooter and my personal most anticipated game of 2017, is going to be available on March 28. Along with that information also comes absolute confirmation that the game is, indeed, procedurally generated. T...

Review: Shadow Warrior 2

Three years ago, Flying Wild Hog brought Shadow Warrior to the present day, creating a satisfying amalgam of modern and classic first-person elements. The same things that we credit this year's Doom for doing were all accomplished...

Serious Sam VR drops soon on Steam

Before watching this trailer, I imagined what Serious Sam might look like in VR. I pictured a headless, shirtless, screaming kamikaze man rushing toward me, and that's literally what the video depicts. Glad we're on the same page! I'm also...

Strafe is exactly how you remember the year 1996

I recently swung (swang?) by the Devolver Digital booth at PAX West 2016 to take a good hard look at STRAFE, a hardcore-old-school-ultra-stylized-FPS-roguelike-simulated-gorefest. I've been side-eying STRAFE since its ridiculous Kickstarter...

Shadow Warrior 2 commits the worst sin of all: It's boring

When I look at Shadow Warrior 2, I don't see a video game. I see a piece of scenery you would put in the background of a television show or movie to easily communicate that a character is a "hardcore gamer." It's visually arresting in that ...

Man, I know its just the Ghbili style, but I love the character designs for Ni No Kuni 2, especially Roland, he looks like a cross between Ghibli and Tezuka to me, I like how theres actually a more adult character instead of just
