New Star Control screenshots and Founders Program

Star Control II is one of the best games ever made. Getting that out of the way, I was pretty happy when Stardock announced last year that they would be reviving the series. The original creators Paul Reiche and Fred Ford will not be d...

Dead Rising 4's new mode looks real silly

Sometimes, all it takes is an image. "That's it. I'm writing this up. Folks need to see." This screenshot of Frank West pulling off his best Sissel-from-Ghost Trick impression is one such example. What's going on here? The Dead Rising seri...

Iron Galaxy's ogre-slaying action game Extinction looks slick

This is my first time seeing Extinction, Iron Galaxy's action game about fending off giant ogres, and what an intro! The announcement a few months back was only a cinematic trailer, but today is all about gameplay. The scale of the monsters...

It's the perfect time to start fresh in Dark Souls

For way too long now I've been telling myself I'm overdue for a fresh run through Bloodborne, but it looks like I'll need to postpone those plans yet again. The Dark Souls reddit community is starting its three-week "Return to Lordran" even...

Cuphead looks right at home on this old television

Playing Cuphead has made me want to seek out and watch a bunch of the 1930s cartoons from which it draws inspiration, but in the mean time, here's a real cool semi-related thing: YouTube user Lazy Game Reviews has hooked the game up to disp...

I'm excited to watch Hidden Agenda

At E3 2017, Until Dawn developer Supermassive Games seemingly simultaneously announced Bravo Team, Inpatient, and Hidden Agenda. We didn't cover Hidden Agenda much, so to catch you up it's a story driven game with choices and quick-ti...

Review: Pylon: Rogue

Roguelikes are becoming a hot commodity in gaming. What was once a unique way to experience an old genre is now a common indie crutch to pad out an otherwise thin experience. We’ve seen absolute classics utilize elements from roguelik...

BlizzCon won't have any Diablo announcements

Blizzard is setting expectations for this year's BlizzCon and if you're a Diablo fan, here's the rub: "while Diablo will be on the show floor, we won't be making any new Diablo announcements. There will be a time for that at some point in t...

Review: Dishonored: Death of the Outsider

Billie Lurk is tired. By the time she takes Dishonored: Death of the Outsider's lead role, the street urchin-turned-assassin has fought harder and lost more than most. Lurk's actions have shaken the world's foundation; with the single flick...

Dragon's Crown looks beautiful on a PS4 Pro

Dragon's Crown would look great on an original PlayStation. Okay so it might not have the same fidelity, but VanillaWare has been making beautiful games since the '90s (when most of the team was at Atlus creating Princess Crown), and this w...

See how Dragon's Dogma stacks up upgrading from PS3 to PS4

Dragon's Dogma is one of those games I can just go back to at any time. Even if I'm not doing the main story I can just screw around and have fun -- and live out my wildest Berserk fantasies (though we've since gotten a recent Berserk ...

Fire Emblem Warriors' intro shows off most of the cast

It's always tough to figure out who makes the cut in an all-stars/crossover game. Koei Tecmo usually does a great job of balancing the old and the new, with the latter usually winning out. Fire Emblem Warriors seems to be using the sam...

Review: RUINER

In recent years there has been an uptick in the number of games that wear their difficulty on their sleeves. Countless games on Steam right now talk about how hardcore they are and how they will beat you down to the point of quitting and cr...

Nioh is getting a complete edition later this year

Nioh has been the gift that keeps on giving for me with a constant surge of both free updates and DLC, and I'll probably be playing it long after the third DLC (slated for this week) drops. A lot of you will probably be doing the same thing...

My favorite characterization of EA shuttering Visceral, and pivoting the design of the Amy Hennig Star Wars game (potentially w micro-transactions): So, this was playing a bit like Snickers, and we were looking for something more like
