Stick it to the Man dev working on another gross game

The off-kilter Stick it to the Man! was a surprise charmer last year with a style and tone that evoked the likes of Rocko's Modern Life and anime of that era.  The studio's follow up is Zombie Vikings, a four player co-op ad...   read

Hyrule Warriors' 'Master Quest' DLC is worth the price of entry if you're already addicted

Hyrule Warriors is a massive game. If you want to 100% everything, get every weapon, and max out every character, it could last you roughly 200 hours or more. I'm hitting the 100-hour mark myself, due in part to the new Master Quest&nb...   read

Children of Morta looks real, real good

I love this flowing, watercolor reminiscent pixel art. It benefits all the happy dancing in the trailer and the exaggerated, unrealistic movements sort of remind me of the animation style of Masaaki Yuasa (Ping Pong: The Animation).&n...   read

A bunch of skeletons explode in the first 20 minutes of Hellraid

Techland's decision to delay Hellraid and move it to PS4, Xbox One, and PC seems to be paying off. That said, you may want to skip the first half of this 20-minute video -- it begins with the first level, which is slow to get going. Look f...   read

A Sacred 3 developer apologizes for the game

Sacred 3 wasn't a very well received game; I felt it was an average and uninspired hack-'n'-slash game with some terrible attempts at humor. Comments on my review either sided on "hey, it's not too bad in co-op," to "this is a stain on the ...   read
