Review: Darkest Dungeon: The Crimson Court

There is a poison coursing through the veins of Darkest Dungeon’s latest expansion. A malignant and cruel thing, a toxin that burns red hot and never lets up. But, if there is one theme that runs throughout the entire Crimson Court ex...

Capcom debuted a new Monster Hunter at Sony's E3 press conference. Monster Hunter World is coming early 2018 to PS4 and Xbox One, with a PC version "coming at a later date." The trailer featured lush jungle environments with slithering, sc...

Everybody's Golf really won me over with its online beta

Over the weekend, Sony and Clap Hanz ran a closed online test for Everybody's Golf and despite spending a good several hours with it (playing as a wise blue-skinned golf dad, like you do), I deeply regret not sneaking in even more time with...

Wynncraft is a full, free fantasy MMO built within Minecraft

There are two kinds of people in this world. One uses Minecraft's endless possibility to make dicks, the other builds a complete fantasy MMO with over 100 quests, guilds, and more. That's Wynncraft, a full-featured MMO four years in the ma...

Meet the mind behind gaming's weirdest playlist

It's easy to take video games for granted. There's just so many of them. By May 2017 alone, over 50 games have had physical releases, in addition to the thousands of titles launched digitally on platforms like Steam. A staggering amoun...

Surviving Mars isn't afraid to let you die on the red planet

Space used to be the place, but in recent years our collective focus has narrowed to Mars. It's likely that enough teens stricken with the millennium bug spent the year 2000 exchanging heavy pets in suburban movie theatres, subliminally ass...

PC Port Report: Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness

Earlier this year, I binged my way through Psycho-Pass and quickly declared it the best anime I'd ever seen in over a decade. Granted, it was the only anime I'd watched in over a decade as Paranoia Agent had pushed the bar to unfeasibl...

Review: Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare: Continuum

Although most people don't keep an eye out for Call of Duty DLC, Infinite Warfare's first pack, Sabotage, arguably topped the main game. It delivered a Jason-esque camp theme for its stellar zombie mode, and managed to nicely balance t...

Review: Drawn to Death

From the mind of Twisted Metal and God of War designer David Jaffe comes Drawn to Death, a multiplayer-only arena shooter set within the doodle-filled confines of a teenager's notebook. This is a world in which a shark-headed ninja can grap...

Badass fan-made Dragon Ball Z fighter is out now for free

Review: Night in the Woods

I'm not sure how to describe Night in the Woods. Even after playing through the game twice, every attempt at defining it feels wrong. I want to say it's a silly 2D platformer almost as much as I think it's a soulful adventure game. Other ti...

Review: Kona

A lot has changed since I first previewed Kona. Back then, it was called Kona: Day One, much of the play area was cordoned off, and the survival elements just hung there in the background. But even so, it had something special already in pl...

Review: I Am Setsuna (Switch)

Last year, we saw the release of I Am Setsuna for the PlayStation 4 and PC. Much like one of Square Enix's other recent role-playing games, Bravely Default, it was an attempt by the publisher to provide an experience somewhat...

New Reservoir Dogs game is way better than I expected

The easiest time to ignore licensed games is when they're released in step with whatever (typically bad) movie or children's cartoon they're based on. Even when they're based on a good one. Did you know there's a John Wick game? Do you care...

The Wild Eight has a long journey ahead in Early Access

The Wild Eight sounds great on paper: an eight-player co-op survival game with narrative-based progression, set against a bleak yet entirely natural landscape. Even in a fairly oversaturated market, it has the potential to set itself apart ...

Doctor Fate is an ass-kicking maestro in Injustice 2

I only know Doctor Fate from his brief appearance in the Young Justice cartoon, but I enjoyed playing him during my hands-on with Injustice 2 here at the Game Developers Conference. For a game as dark and gritty as Injustice -- Superman is ...

Review: Torment: Tides of Numenera

Torment: Tides of Numenera feels ripped from a different era. It’s a bookish game that deals in descriptive text and weighty, philosophical conversations. inExile Entertainment’s latest offering doesn’t dazzle with mind-bl...

Spooky Adventures in Babysitting with 2Dark

Two things I'm very weary of in life: kids and developers mostly remembered for big hits from 25+ years ago. Look, if you've ever played Amy, you'll understand where I'm coming from. Even so, someone thought I was the ideal person to play 2...

Here's how New Game+/postgame works in Nioh

Nioh is a return to form for Team Ninja. Not only does it preserve the hardcore nature of their roots, hearkening back to their golden age era that peaked with Ninja Gaiden Black, but it also has some modern conveniences built into it....

How to identify and deal with Nioh's mimic chests

I've been sleep deprived this past week and I don't see that changing. The cause? Nioh. I can't get enough Nioh. It's Team Ninja's Souls- and Diablo-inspired samurai action game, and it is fantastic. Chris got us rolling with some quick ti...
