So, is Xbox Game Pass the Netflix of video games?

Review: Perception

A first-person story-driven horror game with a strong blind female protagonist made by former developers of games like BioShock and Dead Space has got to be good, right? Plus, it has all the workings of a game someone, like myself...   read

Review: RiME

Rime has been through hell. Tequila Works initially pitched it to Microsoft, which didn't end up working out. Then they went to Sony with another exclusive offer, which did work out, until it didn't. Now they're back with a vengeance on fou...   read

Somehow the Wii U version of Teslagrad was the most profitable

Developer Rain Games recently released World to the West upon gamers, but had to delay the Wii U port to further optimize it. While that may have been seen as a bizarre move (why bother releasing for a dead console?), this story seems to ex...   read

Review: Injustice 2

Back when I was playing the original Injustice: Gods Among Us, I didn't think a superhero fighting game could get much better: A decent single-player story, some fun side diversions, and the opportunity to send that smug little prick Nightw...   read

Shadow Tactics on consoles is a nice surprise

Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun is perhaps the coolest stealth game I'm not currently playing. It's a real-time tactical game set during Japan's Edo period in which you manage a five-person team, figuring out when and where to best mak...   read

Witcher standalone card game Gwent is now in public beta

Once again, the protagonist can't catch a break in Far Cry 5

It's kind of a running joke that each Far Cry "hero" (Ajay was far more of a paragon than Jason) is screwed at the start, or on the game's packaging. I mean, more screwed than the average comeback tale, at least -- we haven't had a wis...   read

My one big worry for Destiny 2 after watching the reveal

The Destiny 2 gameplay reveal hit last week, and for the most part I'm pretty high on it. The stronger integration of clans into the game sounds very cool. The fact that it will facilitate mostly solo players getting to play its endgame con...   read
