Harmonix's next project is DropMix, a physical card game

The next title from Harmonix won't be anything similar to what we know the music-focused studio for. It's not another spin on Rock Band or anything else resembling note-matching perfection. It's not even really a video game. It's ...   read

Metroidvania-like Dandara is right at home on the Switch

The impetus behind Dandara was to create a mobile metroidvania that didn't use a virtual keyboard. Thus, a character that doesn't run around, but instead aims jumps, ping-ponging between platforms. And as it turns out, that method of getti...   read

Taro Yoko's next project is a mobile game titled SINoALICE

I'll be the first to admit that I'm not much of a mobile gamer. While I do enjoy the occasional session of Ridiculous Fishing or Downwell on my phone, I'll usually gravitate towards other platforms whenever I just want to pick up ...   read

What does the community think of Fire Emblem Heroes?

Nintendo's second foray into the mobile gaming market seems to have a bit more panache and aggression packed into it. Loads of freebies to get started, a rotation of characters to earn, and just a few weeks after launch we got a new selecti...   read

Pokemon Go is getting 80 new Pokemon from Gen 2, also known as 'the best gen'

This monstrous RollerCoaster Tycoon park is all one giant maze

Every so often I'll come across an evil new RollerCoaster Tycoon creation that pulls me back in. The lasting power of this game and the imagination and dedication of its players never ceases to amaze. This park comes to us from RogueLeader2...   read

Fire Emblem Heroes will be getting two additional stories as DLC per month

The free-to-play nonsense embedded in Fire Emblem Heroes doesn't seem so bad. Sure, you can't just power through the story mode as you'll run out of "orbs," but the game does a pretty decent job of making sure you'll have a satisfying stint...   read

Fallout Shelter wanders from mobile devices and PC to Xbox One next week

Nearly two years later, Fallout Shelter is cracking open the mobile-and-PC-only vault it has been hiding in. There's a whole world of possibility out there; it's gonna go test the waters and hope they're not too radiation-polluted. Bet...   read

Review: Dandy Dungeon: Legend of Brave Yamada

Developer Yoshiro Kimura has a brain that, I believe, runs perpendicular to everyone else in the games industry. When creating his own games, you get oddities not only in design but in character and world building. Sometimes his genius...   read

Hidden Folks looks and sounds delightful

Much like Darren, I am wholly on board with a game that takes the Where's Waldo? concept and just runs with it. That's the appeal of Hidden Folks and its painstakingly hand-drawn illustrations that'll have you poking and prodding and hunti...   read

Super Mario Run is coming to Android devices in March

It's a bit late to the finish line, but it'll get there eventually. Nintendo's Super Mario Run took the mobile world by storm in December when it racked up 40 million downloads in its first four days on iOS devices. Soon enough, the ot...   read

Tomorrow's Nintendo Direct will feature multiple Fire Emblem titles

Without a doubt, the big surprise of last week's Nintendo Switch reveal event for me was Fire Emblem Warriors. I'm so into the game conceptually that even its bare-bones teaser trailer was enough to get my mind racing just thinking about th...   read

Android users can now pre-register for Super Mario Run

I'm really surprised an APK of Super Mario Run hasn't been crafted out of the iOS version and mass downloaded, but Android users hopefully won't have to wait too much longer to play. That's because you can now pre-register for the...   read

RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic for iOS and Android sounds great

The original RollerCoaster Tycoon games from Chris Sawyer remain my favorite in the genre and, to this day, I still get a kick out of messing with park guests in subtle and not-so-subtle ways. Anyone else? Today, Atari has put out a surpris...   read
