The DLC situation sucks, but Final Fantasy XV continues to look great

I think my most watched video ever, after the Metal Gear Solid 2 trailer, was a Devil May Cry 4 gameplay .mpeg. I'd view it over and over and try to find something new each time, then I'd go back and play Devil May Cry 3 again in anticipati...   read

Final Fantasy XV's second half is said to be more story-driven

When I think of Final Fantasy XV, I think of driving around the countryside, hopping out to chase down and beat up monsters, admiring decadent food, and camping with my buddies. Open-world, dudes-on-a-road-trip-type stuff. But that's only b...   read

The Behemoth is running a beta for its weird strategy RPG soon

The Behemoth is taking a crack at turn-based strategy with Pit People, a game that, like the studio's prior work (Castle Crashers, BattleBlock Theater), is silly and best played in co-op. One day you won't have to hear it from me -- you'll...   read

Fallout 4's newest animated short hits the bottle hard

Bethesda's new animated trailer for Nuka-World treats the bottle with about as much respect as the It's Always Sunny gang does. That is to say [Rodney Dangerfield voice] it gets no respect. No respect, I tell ya! When Nuka-World&...   read

New Pokemon Crabrawler is an incredulous rock lobster
