Review: Friday the 13th: The Game

Ch...ch...ch... Ah...ah...ah... Somehow I’ve made it through life without viewing a single Friday the 13th movie, yet after playing this game I feel it’s probably unnecessary (see what I did there above??). Kickstarted back in O...

Shenmue 3 is missing E3 and probably its 2017 release date

Ys Net has released its latest monthly update on Shenmue III, introducing a new character model. That's about it, outside of confirming the $6.3 million crowd-funded sequel to the Dreamcast cult classic will not be shown off at E3 next mon...

Blasphemous is another action-platformer to watch

Having seen a few early gifs here and there, I've been waiting for a good opportunity to talk about Blasphemous. The now-live Kickstarter campaign will do just fine in that respect. This is a brutal-looking 2D action-platformer from The Ga...

PSA: Chroma Squad is out on PS4 and Xbox One

It's time for us to pose in front of a colorful explosion, as Chroma Squad makes its debut on the PS4 and Xbox One. While there were some casualties with the game's Vita version, this won't stop Behold Studios' tokusatsu (live-action s...

A Hat in Time is set for a fall 2017 release

Shame on me for hibernating on A Hat in Time these past few years, because it's looking fantastic -- not just as a 3D platformer inspired by the greats, but as one that seems to be doing its own thing. Along with today's trailer, which sho...

Eagle Island has one of the best demos I've ever played

I've been following Eagle Island for a while after seeing some awesome looking GIFs of it on Twitter. It's a procedurally generated Metroidvania and/or roguelike about a boy and his pet owl that he has trained to attack at his will.&nb...

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is headed to Nintendo Switch

WayForward isn't done with Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, and that's fine by me. The latest development? A Nintendo Switch version! It's in the works for a summer release, with "full details coming soon." Love that color palette. Unlike so many...

Deadly Premonition: The Board Game is coming this year

I asked last week if you'd be down for a Deadly Premonition board game, and it looks like plenty of fans are, even if it means going through Kickstarter first. We're headed for Greenvale! Officially unveiled this week by Rising Star Games,...

Deal: Save on Strafe before tomorrow's release

Back in 2015, a Kickstarter began for a 1990s-style first-person shooter that is now culminating in tomorrow's release of Strafe. Now under the Devolver Digital umbrella, the game is going live on Steam for $19.96 tomorrow, but bargain...

Sci-fi exploration game Exo One looks like a total trip

Exo One is the type of game that's better seen than explained. It makes total sense, then, that the first line under "About this project" on its Kickstarter page isn't a written summary, but a gif -- a short snippet of momentum-based gamep...

The composer of Jet Set Radio has new music for Hover

Two years ago, the future-set parkour game Hover: Revolt of Gamers rolled onto Steam Early Access, and to this day, it's still a work-in-progress on the platform. One of the things that put the project on my radar back when it was seeking K...

Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment dated on Wii U and 3DS

Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment is a fantastic expansion, and previous owners of the base game are getting it for free. The only problem is that given the (likely lucrative) timed exclusive deal with Nintendo, developer Yacht Club Ga...

Review: Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom

These days, it's unusual for me to actively seek out role-playing games. The allure of embarking on a grand adventure is still strong as ever, and I love assembling and growing attached to a crew of characters, but the sheer time commitment...

The Super Nintendo is next in line for a visual compendium

Bitmap Books has come out with several well-received visual compendiums before, but this latest one -- an unofficial "visual tribute" to the Super Nintendo and Super Famicom -- is particularly special to me. That's my all-time favorite game...

Review: Night in the Woods

I'm not sure how to describe Night in the Woods. Even after playing through the game twice, every attempt at defining it feels wrong. I want to say it's a silly 2D platformer almost as much as I think it's a soulful adventure game. Other ti...

Review: Thimbleweed Park

Thimbleweed Park was Kickstarted back in 2014 and promised a brand new game in an old genre, a return to the classic point-and-click adventure titles produced by LucasArts in the late '80s and early '90s. The title has an impeccab...

JonTron cut from Yooka-Laylee just before the game's launch

All the way back in February 2015, developer Playtonic invited YouTube personality Jon Jafari, aka "JonTron," to be in their game Yooka-Laylee -- which is about to launch next month. It was as simple as Jon giving the studio a "callout...

Bloodstained kills its Wii U version, jumps over to Switch

In yet another death spasm for Nintendo's second-newest console, the Wii U version of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has been cancelled. Instead, developer Inti Creates is pivoting to a version for the Nintendo Switch. No other plat...

Shenmue III progress update shows QTE testing

Remember "QTE Expert" from the You Arcade in Shenmue? You did play Shenmue didn't you? Not only did the game basically invent and focus on QTE's, but it even had a mini-game in the arcade that was about as literal a QTE as you can get,...
