Crawl is headed to Nintendo Switch on December 19

Crawl wasn't necessarily top of mind as a game I'd like to see ported to Nintendo Switch (mostly because I didn't know it was under consideration), but yeah, that'll translate well! It's releasing on December 19, which should make it a litt...

Boyfriend Dungeon is a dungeon crawler and a dating sim

I never know what to expect with Kitfox Games and I love that about them. Their last offering, The Shrouded Isle, was a sim game that let you manage a cult, sacrificing your subjects one by one to a Cthulhian sea god. It was good at being t...

Fight Knight is a dungeon crawler that packs a mean punch

You've probably never played a game like Fight Knight before. It's a first-person dungeon crawler, and while that isn't anything special in and of itself, the way that it abandons spells and battle axes in favor of fisticuffs sets the game ...

Review: Darkest Dungeon: The Crimson Court

There is a poison coursing through the veins of Darkest Dungeon’s latest expansion. A malignant and cruel thing, a toxin that burns red hot and never lets up. But, if there is one theme that runs throughout the entire Crimson Court ex...

Review: Diablo III: Rise of the Necromancer

The Necromancer has risen again. Again and again (like that NSFW Wu-Tang joint), actually, as it was featured in Diablo III as an Act 1 mini-boss and a fully fledged character in Heroes of the Storm. The class is immensely popular, and...

Review: Loot Rascals

GaCuCon: The Soulkeeper was quite the attention keeper

Have you seen the Helm Systems logo? When I got the business card I was like GIGGLE GIGGLE CONDOMS while totally keeping my composure. This is the second time I've had a chance to check their upcoming title, and yet again I came away impres...

Path of Exile is gearing up for an Xbox One version

Grinding Gear Games' well-liked action-RPG Path of Exile is making the move to Xbox One later this year and, wait, really? Huh. What a nice surprise! The port won't be an exact duplicate given the new gamepad controls, as you'd expect, but...
