Surprisingly, Titan Quest has received a new expansion

In this new digital age we live in, seemingly any game can get new content. While it was strange to see Age of Empires II HD get some new expansions, I never thought I'd see the day when Titan Quest got some recognition. It was crazy enough...

Review: Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy

Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy is one of the PS2 classics I remember well enough to know I played it, but have let almost every other detail escape from my mind. Eurocom and THQ's Zelda-like set in ancient Egypt was a fun attempt at a new...

Mighty No. 9 found its way into the Humble Saints Row Bundle

They're pitching it as the Humble Saints Row Bundle, but with extra games like Mighty No. 9 and Killer is Dead, this is really more of a Deep Silver dealio. Which, hey, it worked. They got my attention. Pay $1 or more: Risen 3: Titan Lords...

de Blob 2 gets a surprise release on Steam

It seems like just yesterday that de Blob got a release on PC (after nearly a decade of being a Wii exclusive). Publisher THQ Nordic worked their magic to make sure the game didn't stay obscure and they have done so for the game's sequel, d...

Review: De Blob (PC)

Man, the Wii had a ton of great games, didn't it? For every piece of shovelware there was a hidden gem like Zack & Wiki or Wario Land Shake It that fell by the wayside in favor of some of the console's huge hits. But alas, som...

Review: Darksiders: Warmastered Edition

Darksiders was one of the last generation's hidden gems, a dark, beautifully designed pastiche of several other action-adventure titles. Planned as a four-part series, the franchise only got as far as #Darksiders2 before publisher THQ decla...

Darksiders Warmastered Edition is a free upgrade on PC

Admittedly, I just wanted to write a blurb about Darksiders Warmastered Edition's launch on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One to rekindle the life-affirming goof that is #darksiders2. Someone had to! But there's another, arguably better reaso...

The original Red Faction may be headed to PS4

THQ Nordic's recent announcement that Red Faction was removed from Germany's index of "damaging" games now makes a lot more sense. According to the European ratings group PEGI, the 2001 original will be releasing on PS4 via Sony's PS2 Class...

Ubisoft's canceled 1666 resurfaces as trademark

Patrice Désilets was the creative director of Assassin's Creed, Ubisoft's cash cow from which all its games seem to be modeled (endlessly reproducable open-world systems from now until end, amen). He left the company in 2010 and went...

Guillermo del Toro is done with games

Guillermo del Toro hasn't had a very good experience with video games, has he? First he spent literally years working with THQ on something, only for them to go bankrupt and sell off all of their stuff. Then he went to work with Hideo Koji...
