Been a while since we've seen Rain World's good ol' slugcat

Rain World met its Kickstarter funding goal almost three years ago, and it has been largely out of the spotlight since then. Heck, the last time we wrote anything about the oppressive, waterlogged world was like a year and a half ago. But i...   read

Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy gets a name, gameplay

That remake of the first three Crash Bandicoot games (Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, and Crash Bandicoot: Warped) has a name, Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy, and it looks pretty neat. I've been ...   read

This overview video makes the case for Super Mario Maker 3DS

Nintendo is pushing out Super Mario Maker for 3DS right in time for the holidays, and while there's no doubt in my mind that it'll sell well as a portable Mario game, this version leaves a lot to be desired compared to its superior Wii U c...   read

I love that we can get pitches for new Sega Genesis games in 2016

We're in an era where we can get brand new original Dreamcast shoot 'em ups and SNES platformers. While publishers are basically remaking every classic game in their catalog they can get their hands on, we also have a collective of indie de...   read

Review: Exile's End

There was once a time when 2D games were the tentpole releases that companies pumped out to make the big bucks. Those days are long gone, but the sidescrollers live on and are a staple in today's landscape thanks to indie developers. The in...   read

Inti Creates and Sunsoft are working together on a new 8-bit Blaster Master game

Blaster Master is well known to a lot of people. It basically took me to the next level way back when, as it was notably difficult and contained a mixture of action platforming and Metroidvania exploration. I even explained how it was ...   read

Abstract platformer Bound looks astonishing in VR

This weekend marked my first time going through Bound, a surreal dancing-centric platformer from Plastic and Sony, and what a trip it was. I had only ever seen screenshots and a couple of early trailers, so it was surprising to find out wha...   read

Slain: Back From Hell likely won't make it to Wii U because of 'weak sales on that platform'

Developers pulling out of the Wii at the tail end of its lifecycle and the Wii U during pretty much any point of its cycle is nothing new -- they usually just end up going to PC or PS4 and all is well. But seeing it happen now, when the Wii...   read

Challenge medals make a decent case for Super Mario Maker on 3DS

Those of you who missed the joy and torment of Super Mario Maker because you don't own a Wii U will have much more of an incentive to look at December's 3DS port. It's a comparatively lesser version, given that you won't be able to share y...   read

Review: GoNNER

Man, do I love roguelikes and these past few years we've been graced with some of the best games in the genre: Rogue Legacy, Downwell, The Binding of Isaac, and Enter the Gungeon.  Thankfully, there is room on that list for one more.   read

GoNNER is good, GoNNER is out now

While I'm not sure it'll have the sticking power of a Downwell or Spelunky, "the beautifully chaotic platformer roguelike" GoNNER is still a good mix of unique art direction, cool head-based powers and weapons, and arcane secrets to figure...   read

We'll have to wait until mid-2017 for Cuphead

Cuphead is not the type of game you want to see rushed, and as much as I would love to play it this year, I'm all for giving Studio MDHR more breathing room. Given the project's animation inspirations, the creators had hoped to finish the r...   read

Intriguing indie Antipole DX pushed into 2017

Oh good, Yooka-Laylee will have a physical edition

I'm doing my best to keep Yooka-Laylee out of my mind. The less I think about it, the easier it'll be to remain patient. That's the idea. Clearly, though, I am struggling to stick to that plan if I'm writing about the dang game. Today's sho...   read
