You've got character: Kotal Kahn (Blood God)

When it comes to competitive multiplayer games, we all have our favorite characters and classes. In this series, I'm putting some of mine under the microscope to see what makes them tick, how they fit into their games, and ultimately why I ...   read

During a live concert, someone's Pikachu costume deflated and they were dragged off stage

An event in South Korea, featuring characters created in Japan, set to the tune of an American made musical -- globalization at its finest (or most masochistic). Songdo, South Korea hosted the Pokemon World Festival this past week, and one ...   read

See the whiptastic first Darksiders III gameplay footage

Following the reveal trailer, IGN has shared 12 minutes of pre-alpha footage from Darksiders III. This is one of those times when the powers that be probably should have waited longer before starting up the marketing cycle. The game isn't ...   read

Ready or Not looks like a bloodier take on the Rainbow Six tactical formula

Developer Void Interactive just loosed the trailer for a SWAT simulator called Ready or Not, which seems to bring back the planning phase-fueled magic of a number of '90s shooters. It boasts eight player co-op or solo play with AI teammates...   read

How much longer will Nintendo support the 3DS?

Nintendo is not giving up on the 3DS. Well, "giving up" isn't the perfect turn of phrase as it's been quite successful over the years, but rather than focus fully on the Switch they chose to just kill off the Wii U instead and keep creating...   read

Review: Birthdays the Beginning

The first time I played Birthdays the Beginning, I didn't put the controller back down for four hours. I was in a trance, totally incapable of wrestling free. The next few nights went similarly: multi-hour sessions ...   read

Ranking the best Star Wars games that I've played

May the fourth be with you! Ha-ha, just a little joke on today, May the 4th -- Star Wars day, to the uninitiated. It's perhaps our most American holiday: no day off from work and in tribute to consumption of a multi-billion dollar entertain...   read

Street Fighter V is a fantastic game that Capcom is handling all wrong

I was inspired by our own Darren Nakamura yesterday when he spoke to Battleborn's flaws and how Gearbox was doing nothing to fix them. Over the past year I've really enjoyed playing a similarly flawed game, Street Fighter V. It's a fan...   read

Review: Nioh: Dragon of the North

Nioh was a sleeper hit in my household. A lot of folks saw it coming and never lost faith in Team Ninja, but after Ninja Gaiden 3 I was ready for anything. Against my odds they delivered and my faith has been restored, but Nioh's ...   read

Review: TumbleSeed

"FUCK!" That's the word I say right before I nearly throw my Switch across the room after dying what seems like the millionth time in TumbleSeed.  "I hate this fucking game," I think at the time, but I don't really. I actually like it ...   read

With the Switch out and high-profile 3DS game releases starting to wind down, it hadn't even crossed my mind that Nintendo would come out with another model, but here we are. Enter the New Nintendo 2DS XL, which will sit right in between th...   read

Review: Scanner Sombre

Scanner Sombre is the exact kind of game that's nearly impossible to write about. Or, it's the kind of game that's nearly impossible to write about without feeling guilty. It's very much an experimental piece, and getting any amount of...   read

Guide: It shouldn't take too long to earn the new Overwatch rewards in Heroes of the Storm

It's an exciting albeit overwhelming week for Heroes of the Storm -- especially if you're an Overwatch fan. Aside from new character reveals (D.Va!) and introductions (Genji!), and the game's far-reaching 2.0 launch (expect to get a ton of ...   read

Breath of the Wild is both a masterpiece and a disaster

[Header courtesy of EternaLegend] Basically everyone and their mother agrees that Breath of the Wild is an incredible game. At the same time, everyone and their mother hates Breath of the Wild. How is that possible? This is something I&rsqu...   read

Review: Dragon Quest Heroes II

Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below not only launched with one of the worst subtitles in gaming history, but some design flaws. Some stemmed directly from latent problems with Omega Force's approach to hack-and-sl...   read

Review: Puyo Puyo Tetris

I remember the first time I played Tetris on my (lately acquired in the early '90s) Game Boy -- I sucked at it. It was one of those moments where no matter how much technical prowess I had at platformers and encyclopedic knowledge I ac...   read

Review: What Remains of Edith Finch

"I think that we've been surrounded by death for so long that we've just gotten used to it." Edith Finch muses this aloud right before she walks into the family's graveyard. She's talking to herself because there's no one left to talk to. E...   read

Review: Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III

I've been playing Warhammer tabletop for nearly 20 years, and I've seen what feels like hundreds of games based on the property come and go. Some stick with me, like Total War: Warhammer. Others fall by the wayside and are forgotten like Fi...   read

Review: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Despite the minor issues I had with Mario Kart 8 (RIP Wii U), they were nothing compared to the lack of a real battle mode -- it was kind of annoying that they even slotted in a fake stand-in for it, if we're being real. But now with&n...   read

Review: Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series: Tangled Up in Blue

It's only appropriate given the episodic, seasonal structure of Telltale's games, but the opening moments of most Telltale releases tend to start strong. Events like the heist sequence from Batman: The Telltale Series' first episode and the...   read
