Darkest Dungeon on PS4 and Vita delayed until the summer

Darkest Dungeon, a kinda-roguelike where you have to keep track of your party’s mental states to survive, has been delayed on PS4 and Vita. While it’s been out on PC and Mac since January, the PS4 and Vita builds were originally...   read

Gonner was hands down my favorite game at PAX East 2016

A roguelike platformer where you're trying to find trinkets to cheer up your only friend -- that just happens to be a giant, land-bound whale named Sally -- was my favorite game at PAX East this year. Are you surprised? How can somethi...   read

The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth is about to crush spirits on Xbox One and PS4

I've let The Binding of Isaac get away from me as far as the expansions are concerned. I know how I get when I become wrapped up in this game, and it's not pretty! But, re-reading Nic's review of Afterbirth now -- "You should absolutely pla...   read

Review: Phantasmal: City of Darkness

Phantasmal: City of Darkness has a killer pitch. A procedurally generated horror game that takes its inspiration from games like Silent Hill and horror staples like the novels of H.P. Lovecraft, set in the extra super spooky walled city of ...   read

Risk of Rain's PS4 port is just what I was hoping for

It's only fitting that right as an exciting new roguelike enters my life and rekindles my interest in the genre, an old favorite comes calling. Lately, Risk of Rain has been eating up evenings that would otherwise be wasted on failed Enter ...   read

What was the last game to surprise you?

I did not doubt that Enter the Gungeon would be good, but given my current roguelike fatigue, I had mentally committed it to being something I'd "get around to eventually." For me, that could have meant playing tomorrow, or four months from...   read

Nab Enter the Gungeon for $10 as its launch discount continues

At the top of the sales chart this week on Steam and elsewhere is Dodge Roll's bullet-hell dungeon-crawler Enter the Gungeon. The game has received an overwhelmingly favorable reception on Steam so far with 93 percent positive user reviews ...   read

Binding of Isaac updates and a Bumbo tease

I'm both excited and terrified for Binding of Isaac Afterbirth+. I mean, more Isaac is always a good thing, but I'm STILL trying to collect all of the items and secrets that were included in the vanilla Afterbirth expansion. Creator Edmund ...   read

Enter the Gungeon has a cute animated trailer

Enter the Gungeon is a title I've been keeping an eye on. Any game that name checks Binding of Isaac and Nuclear Throne is going to pique my interest, but Gungeon has enough of its own style to step out of the shadow of its inspirations and...   read

I've seen Below twice now, and I still have no idea what to expect

Maybe my Bad Journalist seams are showing a bit here, but I cannot pin down exactly what I think Below is. When I saw it at PAX East in 2014, it looked Dark Souls-esque in both combat style and its unforgiving nature. Despite writing a...   read

Capybara Games' Below drops in this summer

Below was one of my most anticipated games last year, but it was delayed into 2016 at the last moment. We won't have to wait for it much longer though, as Capy's new roguelike adventure will be coming this summer to Xbox One and PC. The new...   read

Strafe might be the Spelunky of first-person shooters

One look at Strafe and its influences are obvious. The first-person shooter looks like a lot of first-person shooters. Quake, Doom, and Half-Life are a few titles that developer Pixel Titans grew up revering. Game director Thom Gl...   read

I thought I was tired of roguelike platformers, but GoNNER suggests otherwise

As much as I don't think I need another super-tough platformer with roguelike elements in my life, maybe I do! I dig the unusual art and clickety-clackety sound design of GoNNER. Screenshots don't do the aesthetic much justice. This trailer...   read

Very Quick Tips: Darkest Dungeon

Review: Darkest Dungeon

Most games gloss right over the psychological effects of combat and stress. RPGs see parties of cheery young adventurers slaughter their way through entire countrysides worth of kobolds and giant rats for the sake of justice and good. Natha...   read

Want to hear the narrator for Darkest Dungeon say 'Dankest Dungeon?'

I've been playing a lot of Darkest Dungeon, and it's been a tense experience. It's a merciless game about horror, stress, and the frailty of humanity. A great deal of the grim tone is established by the grave intonations of its dour narrato...   read
