Review: Hearthstone: Rastakhan's Rumble

Blizzard's collectible card game Hearthstone is one of the brightest spots on the company's ledger sheet, having recently surpassed 100 million registered players. The game is in a pretty good place, with Valve's Artifact stumbling out...

Review: Override: Mech City Brawl

One of my favorite overlooked PlayStation 2 titles is a 2003 brawler called War of the Monsters. Inspired by B-movies of the 1950s, the game let you choose from a wide variety of Kaiju and giant robots, then battle it out in a 3D arena full...

Review: Hearthstone: The Boomsday Project

Blizzard's Hearthstone is one of the company's more unusual creations. A digital representation of a physical card game, based on a venerable MMORPG, itself based on a real-time-strategy game (based on the Warhammer universe, but ...

Assassin's Creed will be hiding in a hay bale for 2019

A few years back, Ubisoft put the yearly release schedule of Assassin's Creed on ice. Wanting to focus its efforts on improving each entry, the announcement was a welcome reprieve for many fans after a few years of lackluster entries. Then ...

Review: Yoku's Island Express

There are some genres that work brilliantly when combined, and others you wouldn't expect to mash up very well. Yoku's Island Express blends a Metroid-like action platformer with pinball mechanics, and you'd be forgiven for thinking th...

Shovel Knight gets a spooky sale for Halloween

If you love video games and haven't bought Shovel Knight, then what are you doing with your life? Also, now might be a good time to jump in as Yacht Club Games has put the game on sale for every single platform (and there are a lot) to cele...

Review: Axiom Verge (Switch)

The original Metroid casts a long shadow, and it's clearly had an enormous influence on current-day game creators. The concept of an interconnected world where progress is gated by your abilities never really gets old, and it's resonat...

Review: Death Squared

There's a lot we can thank Valve for, apart from the annual Steam sale. Hiring the team behind Narbacular Drop and expanding those ideas into Portal kicked off an entire generation of clever, challenging action/puzzle games, many ...

Don't watch this Vampyr E3 trailer in direct sunlight

It must suck to be a vampire, unless you're from Twilight. You have an allergy to garlic, holy water becomes like acid and you can't go outside during the day. Then again, I don't spend that much time in the sun...or at churches...or eating...

Review in Progress: DiRT 4

I was a bit of a strange teenager. While most of my peers were busy playing the latest in flashy games, I tended to look for obscure titles and different genres. I remember having a grand old time on the original Xbox playing things like Gu...

FIFA 18 will be kicking off in September

For any of our fútbol fans, you'll be happy to know that FIFA 18 is coming September 29, 2017. That shouldn't be surprising, considering that the past seven games have released in the same month, but confirmation is always nice. In a...

Sonic Mania has a not so nostalgic price

Remember when games used to launch on the SNES and Genesis for $70? Cartridges were expensive, guys! I know I bought Shadows of the Empire in 1997 for about $75, so the whole argument of games being more expensive now a days is baloney. Tha...

Polybius is heading to PC

Earlier this month, Polybius finally stopped being an urban legend and became a game on PS4. While there is more than likely not an actual arcade cabinet that drove people insane, the story behind the legend is a cool bit of urban mythology...

Grand Theft Auto online is getting a top down racing mode

The original Grand Theft Auto and its first sequel employed a different viewpoint to the games we have today. Instead of being third-person, they went for a top down view due to hardware limitations of the time. PC's and consoles weren't ab...

Watch Dogs 2's next patch adds paintball guns, new MP modes

Even with a season pass loaded with pointless stuff, Watch Dogs 2 keeps receiving a bunch of free DLC. That is a pretty nice gesture, especially since this newest update looks to be adding something super cool. Along with a new PvP mode cal...

Sega unleashes a trio of Sonic Forces trailers

While I vaguely remember Sega renaming this year's 3D Sonic game to Sonic Forces, I can't recall when that happened. I suppose I'm just so much more interested in Sonic Mania that I've almost blocked Forces out of my mind. The small bit we ...

If Stadia works, it may create a sort of entry-level for gaming and bring in people who dont want to pay a big up-front But consoles/PC will still exist for dedicated gamers who want performance and lag-free
