Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 5 releasing March 29

After playing the previous episode, A Block and a Hard Place, I said it felt like the true end of the season. Not only did it wrap up the main story arc, it also ended Telltale's string of quick releases for the series. The shortest wait be...   read

Kalypso's new IP Urban Empire crosses SimCity and Civilization

Today is just a city-builder kind of day, eh? Earlier we looked at Devolver's slick new eco-friendly neighborhood builder Block'hood, and now we've got our eyes on a new IP from Kalypso Media (best known for the Tropico series). Urban Empir...   read

Block'hood brings calm thoughtfulness to building sims

It's always refreshing to see a video game take on important human issues that aren't just love or war. Most city-building simulators require careful planning, balancing different zones for maximum happiness under a budget. Block'hood looks...   read

First screenshots of Dontnod's action-RPG Vampyr are especially dark

We've already seen a little bit of what to expect from Dontnod's upcoming action role-playing game Vampyr, through both a teaser video and some concept art. Both showed a dark world, in both the feasting-on-the-blood-of-humans and the it-is...   read

These new Styx: Shards of Darkness screenshots sure are colourful

Styx: Master of Shadows was a really great, pure stealth game. Not only that, but as a prequel to Of Orcs and Men it did an excellent job of fleshing out Styx’s character with a surprisingly interesting story. If these new screenshots...   read

Casual dragon board game Tsuro out on iOS now

Modern Where's Waldo-like Hidden Folks is mesmerizing

Certainly, the drawings shown here are works of art on their own, but Hidden Folks really comes alive in motion. It's a far cry from the last Where's Waldo game I remember playing, which featured a series of low-res pixel art static images ...   read
