Virginia emulates detective fiction with cinematic flair

The mind of a detective is a web of troubling images. Scenes of bodies and blood occupy the same space as justice and determination. Liars and killers are as commonplace as images of crime and its consequences throughout detective fiction. ...   read

Monsters and Monocles is a steampunk arcade shooter full of dandies

Monsters and Monocles is a send-up to the days of quarter-guzzling afternoons spent at the arcade. It’s a top-down shooter full of Victorian dandies and steampunk aesthetics that encourages solo play as much as it welcomes cooperative...   read

I'm definitely going to be keeping an eye on Master X Master

I haven't seen much talk about Master X Master nearly anywhere, so when the developers contacted me out of the blue, I decided to give it a shot. Oh uh, it's...a MOBA, by the way. Wait, where'd you go?   read

Overwatch's new castle map Eichenwalde is smaller than you'd think

Despite picking support classes whenever and wherever possible, I was perfectly fine waiting for Blizzard to add Ana, Overwatch's first post-release hero, to the game proper before trying her out. But that new map, Eichenwalde? Not a chance...   read

Kled is the silliest League of Legends character since Fizz

I was just talking to community member Stormworm this week about how hard it is to keep up with metas in multiple MOBAs or MMOs. Since you often have to "slot" yourself into a role on the fly (read: you can't just auto-lock Bastion ins...   read

PC Port Report: Aladdin, The Lion King, and The Jungle Book

Okay, cards on the table: I'm 21 years old and my first video game console was a Wii, purchased back in 2007. I've spent the better part of a decade making my way back through gaming's short but storied history. The 16-bit era is still on m...   read

League of Legends champion roundup: Illaoi, Jhin, Aurelion, Taliyah

I've been spending most of my free MOBA time playing Heroes of the Storm. It's such a huge time commitment keeping up with just one meta, that spreading my attention across multiple games (in a competitive way at least) can feel insurmounta...   read

Overwatch's Lucioball is really fun, but the Rio-themed Loot Boxes, not so much

Blizzard kind of came out of nowhere with its Overwatch Rio Olympic celebration, complete with a brand new limited-time mode, as well as legendary skins, sprays, emotes, intros, and player icons. Let’s take a look at what you’re...   read

I think it will take people a while to figure out Auriel in Heroes of the Storm

Having first looked at her kit, Auriel really spoke to me. She has a straight-up resurrection spell -- something no other support in the game sports. She also has a very cool mechanic that sort of "brands" another player, allowing her to sa...   read

Yooka-Laylee is already amazing and it's just in pre-alpha

Today, the Yooka-Laylee Toybox was released for backers (note: I'm in that group), providing a brief look at the game by way of a pre-alpha sandbox. It's...glorious.   read

Okhlos is the mythological mob simulator I didn't know I wanted

Okhlos from Coffee Powered Machine is the next wacky and wild game out of indie publisher Devolver Digital. Have you heard about it yet? You should hear about it. How does right now work? In theory, it's a game that fundamentally gets me. P...   read

Ghost in the Shell Online has a confusing full title, and potential

While people have been arguing about the Scarlett Johansson casting for the Ghost in the Shell film, I've been busy re-acquainting myself with the series. It...took a while. The original movie? Near perfect. The fact that a multimedia hydra...   read

Worms W.M.D plays great, but is still the same ol' can of Worms

I've been playing the Worms series since the '90s. The height of my exposure was by way of the Game Boy version of Armageddon, which I could conveniently play during car rides -- on a portable, the pass-and-play style was almost how it was ...   read

If the demo is any indication, The King of Fighters XIV is destined for great things

I'm glad King of Fighters (and by proxy, SNK) is still in the fighting game discussion. It's had a long, long hiatus since XIII was released back in 2010 (which was a massive improvement on XII), and because a new collective of owners has r...   read

Wielding samurai swords in VR is easily the best way to play Fruit Ninja

CastleStorm isn't half bad on the Oculus Rift

Overwatch's Ana feels like a true sniper, and a welcome addition to the game

We all knew a support was coming to Overwatch, but I didn't expect Pharah's mom, and I especially didn't expect her to be in playable state on the PTR today. Yes, if you're so inclined, you can boot up your Battle.net client right...   read

Heroes of the Storm's Gul'dan is the ultimate risk-reward assassin

Life Goes On: Done to Death adds enough to make it worth playing again

Medivh is one tricky asshole in Heroes of the Storm
