Celeste is the next pure platformer to keep an eye on

Platforming has been around for so long, it's ingrained in us as a basic skill. It's like walking or breathing. We just do it. It's such a basic skill, many games these days use it as the vehicle to get to where they really want to go. Puzz...

Runner 3 trades Bit.Trip for a rocketship

Hard as it may be to believe, the Bit.Trip series has been around since 2009. The franchise got its start on the Wii, and developers Choice Provisions have had a close relationship with Nintendo since the studio's inception. Runner 3&n...

Monolith says Shadow of War's end fight won't suck

Maybe the strongest praise for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor necessitates pointing out its most glaring flaw. The game was a darling, managing to please fans and earn critical acclaim. All of that in spite of the fact that the final b...

The Evil Within 2 feels like a more well-rounded game

I thought The Evil Within 2 had a strong first showing at E3. The imagery in the reveal trailer woke me the hell up (remember, Bethesda's presser was on a Sunday night), and I'm always down for contorted monstrosities in my spooky video gam...

Monster Hunter: World will be the one that gets me

My history with the Monster Hunter series is painfully, regretfully abrupt. I attempted to get into it years ago, on PlayStation Portable, but bounced off so hard that I can't even confidently say which installment I tried. That experience ...

Wattam is almost too cute for words

Wattam, the new project from Katmari Damacy and Noby Noby Boy creator Keita Takahashi, is really coming into its own. The last time I went hands-on with it, I described it as "more toy than game," but noted that it was infectiously joyful a...

The Crew 2 is shaping up to be my open-world racer of choice

Ubisoft's latest showing for The Crew 2 was a lot like its last, but I'm not complaining. This weekend, I got another crack at the racer's open-world antics. Morphing between a car, plane, and boat in real time without losing momentum conti...

SteamWorld Dig 2 feels like a proper sequel

I couldn't be more thrilled that SteamWorld Dig is getting a follow-up. I loved its core loop of digging, collecting treasure, and heading up to the surface to buy upgrades that enabled you to delve deeper and more efficiently, opening up n...

Pikuniku might be your next friendship-ruining co-op game

Pikuniku was such a fitting game to play first at PAX West. It encapsulates the show perfectly. It was situated all the way in the back of the Indie Megabooth, an area of the show floor that has gotten increasingly (and deservedly) more cro...

Shots Fired, for the app-loving modern sniper assassin

The one-sentence description given upon sitting down at Shots Fired is a weird one. According to the representative at its PAX booth, it's a "visual novel time management assassination simulation." I had to write that one down to make sure ...

Miitopia is very much Tomodachi Life: The RPG

I’m several hours into Miitopia, the new RPG for the Nintendo 3DS releasing at the end of the month, but I’m already thinking I should start over. Not because I’ve made any mistakes as that so far is impossible to do. I wa...

Indivisible is two great tastes that taste great together

If you've spent any time on the internet, you've likely come across a Two Things t-shirt; a shirt that exists only to make two surface-level geek references at the same time, as opposed to the one reference you might get from a Star Wars gr...

Burn books and sacrifice villagers in The Shrouded Isle

There's nothing simple about presiding over a struggling community. People get pissed if you don't take care of them. Groups get unruly, threatening rebellion when neglected and ignored. More often than not, it's impossible to make everyone...
