Who is your favorite 'indie publisher?'

The last few years have seen a huge influx of indie games on consoles, PC, and handhelds, providing potential players with more choices than many know what to do with. While the struggle to sort through tens of thousands of game releases a ...

 
 
 
Thumper preview photo

Thumper in VR is scary and entrancing

Today I stopped by the PlayStation booth at PAX East to take a look at a rhythm-hell fever dream that I’ve much looked forward to: Thumper. You know your boy hopped directly into the opportunity to experience Drool’s nightmare r...

 
 
 
PAX 2k15 Montage photo

Look at all the fun we had at PAX Prime 2015!

Boy oh boy, we had a blast and a half at PAX Prime 2015. We played some games, saw old friends, and got very sick. Very, very sick. I am dying. Please send a gun with one bullet so I can escape this mucus hell of my own creation. Anyway, th...

 
 
Dragon Age: Inquisition photo

Dragon Age: Inquisition's DLC epilogue is called Trespasser

Dragon Age: Inquisition isn't even a year old yet, but for some reason it feels like it's been forever since it came out. I played it, had a gay old time with my slender elven Knight-Enchanter, finished the story, then settled down to wait...

 
 
Mario Maker PAX photo

I made a terrible Super Mario Maker level at PAX

Super Mario Maker is playable on the show floor at PAX, and it turns out Nintendo is giving players a rather generous amount of hands-on time with the game. If you're patient and don't have anything else to do (also if you're insa...

Exclusive: Mega64 announces foray into indie game development

A disturbing and cryptic press release today from Internet comedy troupe Mega64 is making waves online. Naturally, Mike Cosimano and I were on the scene with an exclusive interview about their journey from making videos about video games to...

 
 
Gassy Mob photo

Fart on everyone and run away with Gassy Mob

Fart. Toot. Fluff. Pass gas. Flatulate. However polite you want to be while describing gas escaping from a butthole, it's still a pretty impolite thing to do in public. Impolite and funny (to me). Like this classic gem: Why do farts smell?...

 
 
RIVE preview photo

RIVE was my favorite twin-stick shooter at PAX East

When I learned that Netherlands-based Two Tribes Studios (Toki Tori & Toki Tori 2) was bringing its snazzy metal-wrecking, robot-hacking, twin-stick shooter RIVE to PAX East this year, I jumped at the chance to set ...

Game News Haikus: PAX East Edition

Last week's video was a little late thanks to PAX East, and I said I'd make it up to you. This week, instead of seven haikus we have ten, and for good reason. In this series, we normally take a look at the stories that gathered the most at...

Anti-dads, claymores, and hotdogs in Dad by the Sword

While at PAX East, I had the pleasure of interviewing Kepa just before the show floor closed on the first day. He and I were both frazzled, but that didn't stop him from smiling and refusing to take my bait to say that his game Dad by the ...

Viking Squad beats enemies to death with fish

Four vikings worshiping different gods fight their way through procedurally generated environments with various weapons including a fish; no, it isn't your family reunion but the upcoming beat-'em-up Viking Squad. Marvel at our beards as J...

 
 
A.N.N.E photo

Put your one true love back together in A.N.N.E

As someone who never got into non-linear Castlevania games and had never finished a Metroid, I've recently been really turned on by metroidvania games. Aroused, even. A.N.N.E takes the genre a step further and mixes it with a spa...

Did a clown who farts in a Porta Potty win PAX East?

Last week on Sup Holmes, I ranted to David Fox about how his game Zak McKracken is the greatest point and click adventure about subversion of corporate power structures, empathy,  and opening your eyes to the world around you eve...

Samus asks Nintendo for a new game

Nintendo is famous for frustrating some of their diehard fans. The irony is, those fans are only frustrated because Nintendo is doing a lot of things right. It may not let us buy a lot of their products, and it often takes its time wi...

 
 
What Samus Wants photo

Ex-Nintendo exec tells Samus to 'consider going indie'

Dan Adelman worked for Nintendo for many years, and was one of their unsung heroes for much of that time. While he has consistently voiced affection and respect for the company, he did end up resigning last year, in part because he felt li...

Did Social Justice Warriors Win PAX East?

Mere seconds ago, I discovered that I am on the original list that inspired the development of a game called Social Justice Warriors. There is even an attack in the game based on some of the specific wording found on that list. W...

 
 
Dad by the Sword photo

Dad by the Sword features limp, floppy swords

Dad by the Sword is iOS developer Rocketcat Games' first entry into the PC market and boy howdy, is it a doozy. Part sword-fighting simulator, part long-running dad joke, all demented loveliness. Rocketcat's design experiment-turned-v...

 
 
What Samus Wants photo

Samus wants to be in Shovel Knight

When we last checked in with Samus, she was trying to score an interview with Tim Rogers, co-creator of Videoball. Despite the fact that she's been appearing in videogames for over 25 years, he still didn't know who she was. That wouldn't ...

Steam Controller and FPS: PAX East 2015 impressions

One of what was seemingly the better-kept secrets at PAX East 2015, the Steam Controller, was available for hands on at the Alienware booth connected to the company's Steam Machines. I was able to test the previous iteration of the control...

Who had the sexiest Nintendo cosplay at PAX East?

Sexy Nintendo is inevitable. Some will try to fight it, or even mock it. In doing so, they are choosing to live on the wrong side of history. I know how they feel. I scoffed along with the rest of them back when the burgeoning "Sexy Luigi ...
