Mythology, folklore, and video games go so well together. If I didn't already hold that opinion, then Yaga, an upcoming action-RPG drawing from Slavic culture and stories, would've shown me the light. In Yaga, you play a blacksmith caught b...

PyroMind is a frantic puzzle game about defusing bombs

No more than ten seconds into my first round of PyroMind, I knew I was hooked. It's a simple but filling action-puzzler in which you strategically move across tiles, defusing bombs to score points and stay alive. New bombs regularly appear,...

Agent 47 is bald because hair was just too difficult

You might've heard the story about Mario wearing overalls and just generally looking the way he does in part because of the limited power of hardware at the time of his creation, but did you know that Agent 47 of Hitman fame also got his ic...

Hitman has passed 13 million players

It shouldn't be much longer now before we hear about the next step in IO Interactive's plans for Hitman, but before an inevitable season-two reveal happens, it's worth checking in on how things are going. By last count, Hitman had pulled in...

Lock's Quest returns with a remaster on PC, PS4, and Xbox One

In today's "Whoa, what, really?" gaming news, THQ Nordic has revealed plans to bring back Lock's Quest with an enhanced port headed to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One this April. It's a name I haven't thought about in years -- the DS origin...

Darksiders Warmastered Edition is a free upgrade on PC

Admittedly, I just wanted to write a blurb about Darksiders Warmastered Edition's launch on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One to rekindle the life-affirming goof that is #darksiders2. Someone had to! But there's another, arguably better reaso...

The original Red Faction may be headed to PS4

THQ Nordic's recent announcement that Red Faction was removed from Germany's index of "damaging" games now makes a lot more sense. According to the European ratings group PEGI, the 2001 original will be releasing on PS4 via Sony's PS2 Class...

Gothic creator working on a science fantasy RPG

Piranha Bytes is known for Gothic and Risen, but it's stepping away from those series to create a new role-playing game, ELEX. That's "eclectic, lavish, exhilarating, xenial." Got it? Me neither! We can't actually see the game until August,...

The Darksiders II remaster doesn't look all that different

Were we expecting the remaster of Darksiders II for current systems to look significantly better than the 2012 original (RIP THQ)? I was not. Crisper and smoother, sure, but that's about it. Here are some comparison screenshots that, at lea...

Darksiders 2 remake confirmed, has a punny name

Closing in on four months later, we can finally confirm the February leak of a Darksiders 2 remake. Nordic Games announced a 1080p remaster for PS4 and Xbox One. It's cheekily named Darksiders 2 Deathinitive Edition, which is something...

Does anyone remember Legend of Kay?

Legend of Kay is a 3D platformer action-adventure title starring Kay, a cat who uses his claws in "meow-tial arts" as well as weaponry to fight evil gorillas who have been oppressing cat kind. So the game is about a species war, I guess?&nb...

Darksiders owner buys rights to Vietnam shooter Men of Valor

We haven't had a good Vietnam War game since, uh, have we? I can only remember Shellshock: Nam '67. Anyways, Nordic Games, which recently devoured THQ's heart to steal its power (that is, acquired rights to Darksiders, Red Faction, and de ...

#darksiders2: Darksiders II current gen remaster confirmed

I'm sure Darksiders 2 is a fine game if you've dry humped behind a Hot Topic counter after a date at Orange Julius, but my favorite thing about its existence is #darksiders2, which Occams blessed us with all those years ago. ...
