Tormentor X Punisher is metal beyond good taste

Let's fucking do this! Sure at first glance it looks like I Made a Game with Zombies in It! without a tongue in its cheek, especially with the live-action trailer bits that look like Strafe with 1/10th the budget (I mean, a professional ba...   read

After nearly four months, VVVVVV is back on the 3DS eShop

Well this took a while. Back in May, Terry Cavanagh's VVVVVV was pulled from the 3DS eShop due to a homebrew exploit issue. It was kind of just...dormant for months, until finally popping back up this week. It seems to be fixed, and as a re...   read

This Owlboy trailer shows that good things take time

I don't know that I'm capable of writing about Owlboy without talking about the passage of time, so I'm not even going to fight it. This is a game I've been looking forward to for years and years, to the point where there's almost a sense ...   read

AI-chatting sci-fi game Event[0] set for Steam in September

Funny, strange, sometimes alarming things can occur when you chat up one of those artificial intelligence bots capable of convincingly chatting back. Look no further than Cleverbot. It's all right there in the parental-advice disclaimer: "t...   read

Inside releases on PS4 today, and you should totally play it

It's not even September, but there has been a fair amount of preliminary talk about game of the year. Everyone has their own opinion. Chris keeps championing Overwatch, I won't shut up about The Witness, Zack really loves Devil Daggers, etc...   read

Review: Alone With You

A lot of debate sparks over what constitutes a “game.” Many people aren’t keen on things like walking simulators because they bear little resemblance to more classic experiences. Some people love them for their ability to ...   read

Allison Road may still see the light of day

It's still unclear what exactly went down with Allison Road. The P.T.-inspired horror adventure game went from seeking Kickstarter funding to having a publisher in Team17, and just as things were looking their most hopeful, the project was ...   read

The final update for Fez on PC and Mac is a doozy

One of these days, I need to play Fez again. It's been long enough that, aside from a couple of area themes like the "Virtual Boy red and black"-looking sewers and the Disasterpeace soundtrack, I don't really remember anything concrete abou...   read

Below delayed again, no new date given

Earlier this year, Capybara Games announced that Below would release this summer. It was substantial news because Below felt as if it were one of those games that has been talked about forever but was never any closer to coming ou...   read

Solbrain Knight of Darkness steals artwork, music, and more

Review: Okhlos

If there's a game concept I'd like to see become prevalent, it's the one where you amass an army of little dudes to wail on much-bigger monsters. Pikmin. Overlord. Little King's Story. Only those three readily come to mind, and while my mem...   read

I hope N++ fares better on Steam

The sense I get from N++ is that it has been largely overlooked despite the many fans Metanet has garnered for its precision platforming, and despite the fact that this installment is really quite good (and freakin' huge!). Was it the Pla...   read

I've met someone and I think I'm in love, his name is Owlboy

Internet compiles exhausting list of features 'missing' from No Man's Sky

No Man's Sky is hugely popular and, depending on who you ask, a neat Jules Verne-esque romp through space or an abject failure of procedurally-generated lies. I'm not sure where I sit because I admittedly got a bit bored and then got obse...   read

Review: Inversus

Arena games, man. Arena games. Back in my day, we played Super Smash Bros. 64 every day, which only had 12 characters, and we liked it! Okay, I'll drop the faux cantankerousness. Gaming, in my eyes, has only gotten better over time, an...   read
