A jailed worm and a blood puddle define Quake Champions' newest map

Monster Hunter clone Dauntless seems perfect for players on a budget

For me, there's an important distinction between "budget-friendly" and "a budget game." The former may be a little sanded down or rough around the edges, but is an otherwise solid experience that can be had for a low price (or no price at a...   read

Monster Boy is a medium-sized glass of room temperature tap water

Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom is a "spiritual successor" to the Wonder Boy franchise. It's a cute platformer where you can switch between animal transformations as the situation demands. You can butt-stomp enemies. It's set f...   read

Rime will seem very familiar to anyone who's ever played an indie puzzler before

Rime takes place in a quiet, mysterious world (that just might have a hint of danger!), contains no spoken dialogue, stars a young boy and his mystical animal companion, and has an ambiguous story that will be left up to interpret...   read

MetaArcade showed me a choose your own adventure creator, and I ruined it

The first major disagreement I ever remember having with my first girlfriend wasn't about jealousy, it wasn't about a missed anniversary, it wasn't even about sex. Instead, it was about a person's natural ability to draw. She was an artist ...   read

Minit is a charming indie version of Majora's Mask

Minit is like Majora's Mask; Minit is like Groundhog Day; Minit is like Westworld from the robots' perspective; Minit is like that one episode of Supernatural, that one episode of Doctor Who, that one ...   read

SmuggleCraft is an ambitious racer, but needs some tweaking

I'm a huge fan of racing games. I'm terrible at them, but I've always loved driving around at high speeds with my friends. Throw hovercraft into the mix and I'm sold from day one. Games like F-Zero, Diddy Kong Racing (I know they were water...   read

Hello Neighbor is a horror game for cowards

When I arrived at TinyBuild's PAX South booth for my Hello Neighbor appointment, hoping to either get a hold of somebody or hop on a station myself, I noticed something that both piqued my interest and got me a little worried: a l...   read

After playing the Nintendo Switch, I'm excited for the games, not the hardware

[For impressions from Japan, check out Cory's hands-on with the Switch.] I first played The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild back at E3 2016. You don't need me (the "there are only five good Zelda games" guy) to tell you that Breath...   read

Statik's VR puzzles made me feel like a genius and an idiot at the same time

I haven't spent much time with PlayStation VR because there has yet to be a game to really pull me in. While the games have seemed cool, I never truly felt like I was fully immersed in another world like much of VR's advertising promised me...   read

Sticks and stones may break your bones but in Haimrik words will hurt you

I didn't know much about Haimrik before getting my hands on it during PAX South. Other than its eye-catching art direction, not much has been said about the title. Glancing at its sepia-toned world, I had a slight worry that I wouldn't enjo...   read

Earthfall is a fun co-op shooter, if a bit familiar

Earthfall by far had the largest setup at PAX South with giant TVs showcasing trailers of the game as well as projecting each of the player's performances for everyone to see. Since I'm overall terrible at first-person shooters, coupled wit...   read

I thought I was prepared, but Ruiner totally cyberpunk'd me

Do you fancy a challenge? Do you long for the thrill of near-death and the subsequent feeling of satisfaction perfectly accentuated by the sinking rag doll of your enemies? Are you like me? If you are, then you want that challenge. You want...   read

Trove is the cutesy, blocky MMO kids could get addicted to

I've never been much of an online RPG player, so when I first heard about Trion Worlds' Trove I didn't think I'd be interested. But hearing about it and playing are two completely different things. Standing out among the other offerings aro...   read

Loot Rascals is endearing and definitely rascally

[Everyone welcome Seymour Duncan into the fold, who is doing a little work for us at PAX South.] Loot Rascals was a tough PAX South booth to find. Slotted back near the tabletop games, I figured I was venturing a tad too far away from ...   read

Gravity Rush 2 is exactly as I'd expected, and that's a damn good thing

The spirit of SCUMM returns in Thimbleweed Park

Death Squared keeps puzzle teams on their toes

Most modern puzzle games feature one unique mechanic, introducing it plainly at first but building on it over time. Braid had its time manipulation. Portal had its... portals. Death Squared is a little bit different. If there's one idea tyi...   read
