Keep an eye on action-RPG Shiness this December

Admittedly, Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom isn't my normal jam. It's doing the grand action-adventure RPG thing, which I can occasionally sink deep into, but it's rare these days that I feel like I can take on that sort of time commitment....   read

Here's what Dontnod's next game, Vampyr, looks like

Sure, you know what vampires look like (sometimes bats, sometimes men, always monsters), but do you know what Vampyr looks like? Don't feel bad if you don't. Since its reveal back in January 2015, not a lot has been shown. It has most...   read

Dontnod's Vampyr has more in common with Life is Strange than you might think

At a cursory glance, Vampyr, developer Dontnod Entertainment's third game, could not be any more different from Life is Strange. One's an action role-playing game set in early 1900s London; the other is an exploration- and narrative-based d...   read

Dang, I should've been following Shiness this whole time!

Do you know about Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom? I didn't know a thing about it -- not until a couple of weeks ago, at E3 2016, where I was given a rapid-fire rundown. Schedule changes and general last-day-of-the-expo busyness meant I had ...   read

Call of Cthulhu looks a little cheesy, but I'm into it

I can already tell it's going to be a long road to Call of Cthulhu's 2017 release, but I'm hopeful we'll get to see how Cyanide is handling its investigation-centric horror gameplay shortly here. Today's trailer mostly reiterates the basic...   read

Yeah, I could go for another good Call of Cthulhu game

Those first two character-less images of Cyanide's Call of Cthulhu weren't exactly illuminating, but today's screenshots offer more insight into the investigation-driven role-playing game. What are we looking into, exactly? As a private inv...   read

First screenshots of Dontnod's action-RPG Vampyr are especially dark

We've already seen a little bit of what to expect from Dontnod's upcoming action role-playing game Vampyr, through both a teaser video and some concept art. Both showed a dark world, in both the feasting-on-the-blood-of-humans and the it-is...   read

These new Styx: Shards of Darkness screenshots sure are colourful

Styx: Master of Shadows was a really great, pure stealth game. Not only that, but as a prequel to Of Orcs and Men it did an excellent job of fleshing out Styx’s character with a surprisingly interesting story. If these new screenshots...   read

Review: Pix the Cat

Pix is a mix of the two most saccharine basic emoticons, :3 and ^_^, a face for the forgotten mascot age. Just too cute, and not in a way that ever betrays the fiendish score-chaser underneath. Sincere cuteness. A real testament to the spec...   read
