Impact Winter had better get its shit together before releasing

Impact Winter releases on May 22. It is currently May 18. The game is, at times, unplayable right now. This is bad.   read

Danger Zone looks like a nice fix for the lack of Burnout

It’s been a long time since a Burnout game last released. While Burnout Crash was technically the swan song for the series, most fans consider Paradise to be the final “true” entry from developer Criterion Games (or, if yo...   read

Surviving Mars isn't afraid to let you die on the red planet

Space used to be the place, but in recent years our collective focus has narrowed to Mars. It's likely that enough teens stricken with the millennium bug spent the year 2000 exchanging heavy pets in suburban movie theatres, subliminally ass...   read

Overwatch's Genji and Hanamura are coming to Heroes of the Storm

After the release of two other non-Warcraft heroes, we're getting yet another one with Overwatch's Genji -- the fourth Overwatch character to hit Heroes of the Storm after Tracer, Zarya, and Lucio. I had a chance to test...   read

Sparc, CCP's first non-EVE game, is shaping up as a real sport

For CCP, a company that made $86 million in revenue last year, getting out of the EVE comfort zone is a pretty big deal. Sparc (not to be confused with Project Spark) is doing just that, with the aim of providing an entire new VR-centr...   read

Agents of Mayhem tightens up the Saints Row formula with its own cast of lunatics

"I am private property, please step away." The high-pitched voice is emitting from a speaker lodged in a saucer-eyed, cartoon squid mascot for a fast-food sushi joint in Seoul, Korea. I am playing as Daisy, a roller derby skater with rockab...   read

Serial Cleaner makes hiding bodies fun

Murder is messy. Think about it; dropping even a single body means a pool of blood, evidence, and potential witnesses. To get away with murder, you have to either think quick or know someone willing to get their hands dirty. In Serial Clean...   read

Double Fine-published GNOG is tactile, satisfying, indie as hell

When I first saw GNOG at IndieCade a few years back, I wasn't quite sure what to make of it. The game reminded me of those Fidget Cubes people seem to like so much -- more of an oddity to poke at than a traditional "game." And that's f...   read

Tripping through Songbringer's spiritual adventure

Songbringer exists at the intersection of nostalgia and innovation. Within the game's pixels are millions of unique worlds. It's The Legend of Zelda by way of Hyper Light Drifter, with one important distinction. Every player must input a si...   read

Fifteen minutes with Dusk just isn't enough

There's a lyric on Beach Slang's second album that sounds like it could be Dusk's mantra. "Play it loud, play it fast. Play me something that will always last," howls singer James Alex. Though the request is simple, it's a loaded gun. ...   read

Death isn't the end in Super Rude Bear Resurrection

I'm standing on the PAX East convention center floor with a controller in my hand. On the screen in front of me is a pissed-off bear wearing nothing but a backward, purple hat. He seems poised and ready for me to guide him through a room fu...   read

Nidhogg 2 might look strange, but it plays like a dream

Nidhogg 2 makes a funny first impression. The game's new look is a bit brutish compared the sleek minimalism of its predecessor, and the expanded arsenal -- which includes a dagger, bow, and broadsword -- steers away from the elegance of ra...   read

Iconoclasts dev on finally finishing the game: 'I feel nothing'

Iconoclasts has been in development in one form or another for ten years now. Back in 2007, it was called Ivory Springs. That version of the game was never finished, but you can download it as a work in progress over on the developer's...   read

Bobby Throne: 'As you hold the Ghost Coin in your hand, you can feel your soul wrap around it'

The Bobby Throne Saves the World booth at PAX East is adorned with free coins and pamphlets, all necessary marketing materials to help spread Bobby's important message. A boy who has approached the booth stands a less than a foot away from ...   read

Ape Out will put a smile on your face in these dark times

When I say that Ape Out is a fun little game, I'm not being insulting. The first couple months of 2017 have smothered players with boundless open world games like Nier: Automata, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, or Ghost Recon ...   read

SteamWorld Dig 2 dev: 'This was the game everyone wanted to work on'

Image and Form had been teasing a new SteamWorld game for months before finally announcing SteamWorld Dig 2. All that teasing turned out to be a bait and switch. SteamWorld Quest, the game they had soft announced, was a red herring. The nex...   read

Wander the cheery world of Yonder

Probably the most cheerful game I played all PAX (maybe of all time?) is Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles -- a bright, happy Harvest Moon meets Windwaker style game that goes beyond traditional farming simulatio...   read

Snake Pass is a relaxing, legless take on 3D platformers

It took me a few minutes to wrap my head around Snake Pass. The 3D platformer seems to have all the trappings of a golden era Rare joint. From enchanting environments, right down to a duo of goofy-looking animal heroes, almost every part of...   read

Lose your sight and possibly your mind in Perception

There’s something unsettling about not being able to fully grasp your surroundings, especially when you’re playing a survival horror game. Perception is a game that throws the player into shaky visual ground, mixes in ...   read

Forget hardcore mode, Pylon: Rogue is just plain hardcore

Reading the name Pylon: Rogue before heading into this preview gave me a few ideas. What if this was about a rogue traffic cone who, while kids are crossing the street, decides to move and cause a horrible accident? I may need psychological...   read

Walk softly and carry a big sword in Final Fantasy XV: Episode Gladiolus

Over the PAX East 2017 weekend, I sat down to play through a slice of Final Fantasy XV’s upcoming Episode Gladiolus DLC. Though I can’t talk about story-specific details – both at the request of Square Enix and because I a...   read

EarthNight is a slightly different take on procedural platformers

Do you enjoy endless runners but can’t stand their procedural generation? Have you ever wanted to play Bit.Trip, but with the main character from Beasts of the Southern Wild? How about mixing those things with a dash of Shadow of the ...   read

Sundered was definitely a game I played at PAX East

Before my time with Sundered, I knew little to nothing about the company, Thunder Lotus Games, or its newest title. It had previously released Jotun on Steam and this new game is looking to tackle the well-worn metroidvania style of action ...   read

Sonic Mania is still great, Tails continues to suck

Little Sibling Syndrome took over big time as I visited Sega's San Francisco office last week. I was there to see Sonic Mania, an upcoming throwback to the hedgehog's glory days. In an attempt to lead the demo, a Sega representative played ...   read

New Reservoir Dogs game is way better than I expected

The easiest time to ignore licensed games is when they're released in step with whatever (typically bad) movie or children's cartoon they're based on. Even when they're based on a good one. Did you know there's a John Wick game? Do you care...   read
