Psychonauts 2 seems to be on the right track

The story of Psychonauts is one of the happiest underdog stories in recent memory. The original launched to critical acclaim in 2005 but underperformed so badly that plans for a sequel were scrapped fairly early on. The relative failure of ...

Empire of Sin is a dream game for John and Brenda Romero

Nintendo's E3 Direct was full of a ton of surprises, but one of the more striking was the announcement of Empire of Sin. Feeling completely out of place for Nintendo's family-friendly image, the short teaser showed mobsters gunning down oth...

It may be derivative, but Zombie Army 4 is a good time

Sniper Elite VR may just convince me to get a VR headset

I'm not exactly well versed in the world of VR gaming. While I think the technology is cool and all, I feel it has more value in academics than gaming. You can certainly make interesting games around the technology, but there hasn't been mu...
