Classic graphics added to Cave Story+ on Nintendo Switch

Slowly but surely, Cave Story+ on Nintendo Switch is getting even better. Today's update doesn't introduce two-player co-op (I'm going to lose my mind when that day comes), but it does add a much-appreciated option: classic graphics. If you...

With all the teasing out of Nicalis, Cave Story on the Nintendo Switch has been a matter of when, not if. The unforgettable platforming adventure game is indeed getting a Switch port, both at retail and on the eShop like The Binding of Isaa...

The best part of Binding of Isaac on the Switch? Easy co-op

I can't be the only one who thinks of food when I slide off those Switch controllers right? It reminds me of breaking off a piece of candy or bread, or something. I've been doing that frequently over the weekend to test out The Binding...

Nicalis is making some Switch ports, but seems shy about it

Nicalis is best known for their work on 2D sprite based titles on the 3DS and Wii U, and it looks like they'll be working with Nintendo, porting some of their previous work to the Switch. The company may have revealed more than intended whe...

Review: Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+

Over the years, I’ve grown to have almost an obsession with Edmund McMillen’s games. They typically are fiendishly simple ideas with tremendous complexity in execution. Super Meat Boy is just a platformer, but the level design f...

It's fun to read too much into Nicalis's Christmas Card

Nicalis is well known for staging elaborate stunts to keep their fans guessing. The recent Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth ARG, headed up by Edmund McMillen, is just one recent example.  Knowing that the company has the tendency to embed ...

The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is coming 'very soon' to iOS

I have an utter infatuation with The Binding of Isaac. While I typically don't enjoy procedural-generation games, the core mechanics in Isaac lend itself to an infinite amount of playthroughs by employing luck and pure skill on the part of ...

Looks like The Binding of Isaac is coming to iPad

Oh, Edmund McMillen. Oh, Tyrone Rodriguez. You're both such teases. You always seem to have something new to show fans of The Binding of Isaac. Do you ever sleep? Is there perhaps a flying Twitter drone in your house that snaps pictures whe...

Nic Rowen picks the best of 2015

It's like the middle of January and you've read about five thousand GOTY lists at this point, so let's get to brass tacks. There were some great games released last year, but which ones were the best? I have no idea. Sorry, there are no m...

Binding of Isaac's ARG is over, unlocks new character

The craziness and drama surrounding the release of The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth has been almost as fun as the game itself (which in my opinion is pretty damn fun). As reported two weeks ago, the initial launch of the expansion was accom...

Review: Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth

The Binding of Isaac has always been a game of contradictions to me. It's both a game that embraces the fickleness of chance and the purity of skill. That encourages you to play around, explore, and experiment, but also rewards players who ...
