Another Terraria update? It's as if someone dared the developers to execute the best post-release support in the industry, and now they just won't back down. Seriously though, good on 'em! Today's PC update is less about content (though you...   read

Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment dated on Wii U and 3DS

Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment is a fantastic expansion, and previous owners of the base game are getting it for free. The only problem is that given the (likely lucrative) timed exclusive deal with Nintendo, developer Yacht Club Ga...   read

Before long, Dead Cells will be doing its hybridized roguelike/metroidvania thing on Steam Early Access, and as much as that's the type of "die, die, die again" gameplay concept I'd rather wait on than attempt to play in an unfinished stat...   read

Review: Flinthook

One part ghost, one part pirate, one part bounty hunter, one part hooker. No, I'm not talking about your grandma, but the protagonist of Flinthook, a game that had me 'hooked' from the start. Sorry. I had to.   read

Review: Vroom in the Night Sky

Watch every Adam Sandler movie in a row. See my grandma naked. Lick the callused scaly feet of Louie Anderson after a hard day's work on the set of Family Feud. Attempt to tie my flaccid penis containing an entire cotton swab in a kn...   read

Fez is heading to iOS this year

Fez turns five today. And more than just a quick birthday celebration and some reminiscing, Polytron has shared that an iOS version of its perspective-shifting puzzle-platformer is in the works for this year. I can't say I'm especially int...   read

The Jackbox Party Pack 3 is A-OK on the Nintendo Switch

I'm a huge fan of The Jackbox Party Pack titles as they not only offer up a ton of content that both gamers and non-gamers alike can enjoy, but they prevent your friends and family from just ignoring you and everyone else in the room f...   read

Review: Mr. Shifty

Hotline Miami was an instant hit upon its release in 2012. Mixing a unique style with gratuitous violence and a self-reflective story, the game asked players to question why they were so willing to murder in video games all the time. Was it...   read

Review: Crawl

This is a review for Crawl. Yes, that Crawl. The one with all the gorgeous pixel art and GIFs you've been seeing on Twitter since God knows when. The one you might remember having played a few years ago, maybe with friends, hanging out on s...   read

Review: Snake Pass

Locomotion is something that far too many video games take for granted. Standard fare for movement is often reduced to holding an analog stick in a direction and you'll get where you need to be. This approach is so ingrained in game design ...   read

Serious Sam's Bogus Detour looks like a nice throwback

This might not be the Serious Sam game we were expecting, but it has my attention. Serious Sam's Bogus Detour is monster-killing twin-stick shooter from the makers of Hammerwatch. You'll get to paint the floors red either alone or with up ...   read

Review: The Sexy Brutale

In just under five minutes with The Sexy Brutale, I watched a man die. He was gunned down; left slumped and lifeless next to a stone altar, all before the murder weapon's echo faded. There was nothing I could do except watch the grisly scen...   read

Review: Use Your Words

Listen up fam, if you're into making dank memes and have a few equally 'lulz' friends who want to create them sitting around a TV via their cell phones, then this is the game for you. I guess? In a world that practically speaks, eats, and b...   read

This week's Rain World update addresses common complaints

It's a shame about Rain World's brutal reputation, but I'm still keeping an eye on it to see how things progress from here. Videocult has already responded with a patch "intended to accommodate some early player feedback and polish assorted...   read

Charlie Murder and Dishwasher: Vampire Smile are coming to PC 'pretty dang soon'

Punk rock beat-'em-up Charlie Murder went underappreciated when it launched nearly four years ago. The Xbox One was on the horizon and the Summer of Arcade program kind of felt like an afterthought at that point. This was long before a...   read

Review: HackyZack

I can't say I've even thought about hacky sacks in any capacity over the last decade. They were a massive fad in the '90s that took the world by storm. There was an inherent joy in maneuvering a sack of beans through the air that clicked im...   read

Review: Yooka-Laylee

There are a lot of bad mascot platformers out there, but you'll have to pry them from my cold, dead hands. Many a night, both as a youth and an adult, were spent scouring cartoony countrysides looking for that one last musical note I n...   read

Knuckle Sandwich looks weird as heck

I have no idea what's going on in Knuckle Sandwich. It looks goofy, full of people with weird noses and boring day jobs. But apparently, there are monsters and cults, random low-poly character models, and knives too.  Basically, Knuckl...   read

We Happy Few is being adapted into a feature film

We Happy Few is the title of an upcoming dystopian drug-addled video game, but it's also a phrase that could describe the audiences of video game movies. Films based on gaming properties have a well-deserved reputation for sucking, the...   read

I actually can't tell if this is a real thing, but with the last minutes of Dogstructoid bearing down on us (long may it live), I'll take my chances. Quill Studios is developing a dog-themed visual novel called A Summer with the Shiba ...   read
