Originally Zelda: Breath of the Wild had a much darker look

Zelda: Breath of the Wild had a glorious aesthetic to it: bright and vibrant, to the point where even the mechanical aspects of the game felt like they had life. But this concept art from the Master Works 30th Anniversary book are something...

Kongregate is making its own PC game platform

Carving out a sustainable piece of the PC digital distribution market won't be quick or easy, but I'm looking forward to seeing Kongregate try exactly that later this summer. The popular browser game portal has announced Kartridge, "a new c...

It's time to put Way to the Woods on your radar

Way to the Woods is just the little pick-me-up I needed on a tired Monday morning. It's a game about deer exploring a world seemingly abandoned by humans, and simply put, it's lovely. I particularly like the giant cat's sewer lair. That's ...

The Switch port of Rime is in a much better place now

This great Monster Hunter LAN setup brings me back

I have a lot of great memories involving LAN parties. Big games, obscure ones where I had to hunt down people to play with, creating my own CAT-5 cables from scratch that would reach long enough to hook up two Xboxes on different floors -- ...

Hyrule Warriors Switch gets new screens, official site

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition is due "sometime in the second quarter of 2018" in the west (and a firm March 22 in Japan), which is incredibly nebulous for a port everyone would probably just hunker down and play right now. While we wa...

Look for these two new DualShock 4 colors in March

I'll admit it: I'm a total sucker for alternate controller colors. Not to the point where I unnecessarily stock up on gamepads to "collect" them -- that'd get way too expensive even with just one console -- but if I'm in need of a replaceme...

The photo mode in Shadow of the Colossus sounds wonderful

Built-in capturing and streaming and photo modes continue to be a highlight for me this console generation. Some games benefit from the latter more than others and I'd say Bluepoint's Shadow of the Colossus remake for PlayStation 4 definite...
