Ready or Not looks like a bloodier take on the Rainbow Six tactical formula

Developer Void Interactive just loosed the trailer for a SWAT simulator called Ready or Not, which seems to bring back the planning phase-fueled magic of a number of '90s shooters. It boasts eight player co-op or solo play with AI teammates...   read

Review: Birthdays the Beginning

The first time I played Birthdays the Beginning, I didn't put the controller back down for four hours. I was in a trance, totally incapable of wrestling free. The next few nights went similarly: multi-hour sessions ...   read

Ranking the best Star Wars games that I've played

May the fourth be with you! Ha-ha, just a little joke on today, May the 4th -- Star Wars day, to the uninitiated. It's perhaps our most American holiday: no day off from work and in tribute to consumption of a multi-billion dollar entertain...   read

Street Fighter V is a fantastic game that Capcom is handling all wrong

I was inspired by our own Darren Nakamura yesterday when he spoke to Battleborn's flaws and how Gearbox was doing nothing to fix them. Over the past year I've really enjoyed playing a similarly flawed game, Street Fighter V. It's a fan...   read

Review: TumbleSeed

"FUCK!" That's the word I say right before I nearly throw my Switch across the room after dying what seems like the millionth time in TumbleSeed.  "I hate this fucking game," I think at the time, but I don't really. I actually like it ...   read

Review: Scanner Sombre

Scanner Sombre is the exact kind of game that's nearly impossible to write about. Or, it's the kind of game that's nearly impossible to write about without feeling guilty. It's very much an experimental piece, and getting any amount of...   read

Guide: It shouldn't take too long to earn the new Overwatch rewards in Heroes of the Storm

It's an exciting albeit overwhelming week for Heroes of the Storm -- especially if you're an Overwatch fan. Aside from new character reveals (D.Va!) and introductions (Genji!), and the game's far-reaching 2.0 launch (expect to get a ton of ...   read

Review: Dragon Quest Heroes II

Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below not only launched with one of the worst subtitles in gaming history, but some design flaws. Some stemmed directly from latent problems with Omega Force's approach to hack-and-sl...   read

Review: What Remains of Edith Finch

"I think that we've been surrounded by death for so long that we've just gotten used to it." Edith Finch muses this aloud right before she walks into the family's graveyard. She's talking to herself because there's no one left to talk to. E...   read

After much speculation and many leaks, Activision has spilled the beans -- the next Call of Duty, developed by Sledgehammer, is titled Call of Duty: WWII, and will naturally deal with World War 2 yet again. For years fans have bee...   read

Review: Little Nightmares

It's been while since a game has ensnared me like this. Where lesser games struggle for my attention as I routinely check the clock and put on podcasts, Little Nightmares hypnotized me with ever-present suspense. Your main goal in this puzz...   read

What happens when you go back to the well and try to make a clone of a 20 year old game? Well, not exactly good things. But, maybe, still what crowdfunding supporters were after? You'll have to listen to the latest Podtoid special to see wh...   read

Review: Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III

I've been playing Warhammer tabletop for nearly 20 years, and I've seen what feels like hundreds of games based on the property come and go. Some stick with me, like Total War: Warhammer. Others fall by the wayside and are forgotten like Fi...   read

Review: Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series: Tangled Up in Blue

It's only appropriate given the episodic, seasonal structure of Telltale's games, but the opening moments of most Telltale releases tend to start strong. Events like the heist sequence from Batman: The Telltale Series' first episode and the...   read

Review: The Disney Afternoon Collection

One of my favorite conversation starters among friends is how they feel about legacy systems like the NES. In my experience, you'll run the entire gamut, from older folks who hated retro games to younger players who absolutely love the clas...   read

Battlefront II will not have a season pass

One of the worst things about 2015's Star Wars Battlefront was that the game shipped with a season pass while being light on content. It would be one thing if the game packed a wallop and had players wanting to return, but gating off a bunc...   read

Very Quick Tips: Yooka-Laylee

Yooka-Laylee delivers on pretty much everything that it promised. It's a throwback Nintendo 64-era mascot platformer with a gazillion collectibles. It feels like a relic in 2017, a product of video game design that the medium has mostl...   read

The original Bayonetta gets a stealth release today on Steam

Bayonetta was a fantastic action game. So fantastic that it's on quite a few "all time great action genre" lists. But at launch, it was a little problematic on consoles at times, especially on PS3. Along with the limited Wii U re-relea...   read

11 bit coined the term 'society survival' to describe its new game Frostpunk

11 bit is the team that's most well-known for This War of Mine, a depressing game about trying to survive as a civilian in a war-torn city. Last time we talked to the developer, it tried to distance its next game, Frostpunk, from This War o...   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

EVE producer: 'An EVE Online 2.0 wouldn't make any sense'

It's been roughly five months since EVE Online went free-to-play, and developer CCP seems to be pretty happy about how it's went so far -- at least on the surface. "We were super nervous, both internally and externally in terms of our playe...   read

Duke Nukem's Bulletstorm tour is a big failure

When it was announced back in 2010 that Gearbox would acquire and finish Duke Nukem Forever, people let out a sigh of relief. Gearbox had a great track record of excellent first-person shooter games and had recently released Borderlands to ...   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
