I might just have to dig out my Kinect for FRU

I can never seem to remember its name, but I certainly recognize that gameplay. FRU is a Kinect-powered puzzle-platformer in which you control a little character with a gamepad and also move around in real life to affect the game world wit...   read

Fans aren't quite done yet with unique Super Mario Maker ideas

I only go back to Super Mario Maker every so often (a few more game themes, and the use of costumes in any theme but the 8-bit rendition would help), but when I do, I usually come across some new magical thing that the community has fi...   read

ReCore could've just as easily been named 'DeCore'

To some extent, ReCore's name makes sense. It's a game about restoring power by stashing new cores in currently power-less things. But, in a more minute-to-minute sense, it could've also been titled DeCore because getting those power s...   read

Review: Trials of the Blood Dragon

Trials of the Blood Dragon is a crossover title that doesn't understand the appeal of either of the inspirations that it's drawing from. It has bike riding like the Trials franchise and it has over-the-top action like Far Cry 3: B...   read

Life Goes On: Done to Death adds enough to make it worth playing again
