I've never thought about a chameleon and a bat combining to form a giant living snow plow till I saw this hot new gameplay trailer for Yooka-Laylee. Now it is all I can think about, aside from the wonderful music and just how much this loo...   read

This is one of the best Humble Indie Bundles in a while

You've probably heard of most if not all of the handsome games found in the Humble Indie Bundle 17. Some of you will have already bought and played them. You're swell. If not, boy, it's time to extend that backlog, and you too can be on the...   read

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

It's shocking how much better Slain is now

Admittedly, I've been slow to revisit Slain. The real metal, real arcade-y hack-and-slash platform game disappointed seemingly everyone who played it at launch back in March, especially folks who chipped in for the Kickstarter. Despite sign...   read

Review: Bound

If you were just going by screens alone, Bound looks like a typical action platformer at first glance. But it's much more ambitious than that, and that zeal unfortunately causes a few bumps in its very beautiful road.   read

Little Nightmares looks messed up in all the right ways

One of 2015's lowkey best games is getting better
