Limbo still refuses to die by coming to Xbox One for a second time

Limbo is a game that you can play pretty much anywhere. Since its 2010 release, it has made its way to almost every imaginable platform. Limbo doubles down on that mindset by coming to Xbox One for the second time. Today, Limbo&nb...   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

It looks like we might get another Azure Striker Gunvolt

With its sequel fully released and certified in quality, Azure Striker Gunvolt has cemented itself as one of the marquee modern platforming franchises. It did everything Mighty No. 9 set out to do and more, and it kind of just did it u...   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

I've been interested in Antipole DX ever since it was announced, and I saw that Carmen Sandiego-ass looking protagonist. It even spurred me into checking out the original Antipole, a DSiWare release all the way back in 2011. DX is...   read

Review: Aragami

I've told this story several times before, but one of my favorite gaming memories involved a Tenchu-themed birthday party, which is no doubt one of the nerdiest things you've ever read. The gist is that Tenchu II had a level editor, so...   read

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

Review: Clustertruck

As a child, I would frequently play games of “the floor is lava” when I was bored. What that involved was basically jumping on furniture to avoid touching the carpet, which would “kill” you. Despite my parents not be...   read

Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap continues to look lovely

I will seize any opportunity to bring up Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap, a gorgeous remake of Wonder Boy III from Lizardcube, and today's developer chat with the original creator fits that simple criteria. "In July we went to Kyoto to demo ...   read

Clustertruck is such a weird game and that makes me happy

Someone made a video game about leaping across a stampede of trucks, and they cleverly named it Clustertruck. Does that name sound familiar? It's out this week on Steam from Landfall Games. While I don't yet know if the game is for me, I b...   read

PC platformers and pixels of the past

If you grew up playing games in the late '80s or early '90s, you remember that Mario dominated the discussion on playgrounds and after school. By some estimates, Nintendo controlled up to 90% of the home console market, and it's no wonder t...   read

Review: Rive

Super Mario Maker is also skipping 3D support on 3DS

With the knowledge that the 3DS port of Super Mario Maker won't let creators upload their levels online (they're just sharable locally), this latest omission -- a lack of 3D support -- feels insignificant. That said, I know some people can ...   read
