How interested are you in Horizon Zero Dawn?

Sony is content with trotting Horizon Zero Dawn out on stage at every event (including the latest PS4 Pro reveal), even if it's just another video clip, but it's surprisingly absent when it comes to general updates. Since it's due in Februa...   read


Enter the Gungeon's free 'Supply Drop' update should bring me back in

I got burned out by the progression loop of Enter the Gungeon, but when I was into it, I was into it. I'm hoping to return someday soon. There's a free update planned for this fall (first on PC, then PlayStation 4 "soon after") that seems l...   read


Behold, the first screens for Metal Gear Survive, aka, 'Kojima's Revenge'

Kojima's Revenge Metal Gear Survive, a brand new video game from Konami Holdings Corporation, isn't looking so hot. Not, it's not looking so hot at all. While some were quick to dispel the notion of the premise of alternation dimension...   read

MercurySteam is bringing Raiders of the Broken Planet to gamescom

MercurySteam is following up its work on Castlevania: Lords of Shadow for Konami with an original sci-fi "shooting and brawling" game called Raiders of the Broken Planet, which I've liked the sound of it so far. Today, we're getting a look...   read


The club can't even handle these Berserk Warriors screens

Several days ago it was confirmed that Zodd will be making his way into Berserk Musou as a playable character (in both his humanoid in Apostle forms), but all we had to go off of was a few old screens of a boss fight and a very low quality ...   read

Action-RPG Vikings - Wolves of Midgard has mythology going for it

There has been an abundance of action-RPGs that source their stories, settings, and characters from mythology, but I still find myself drawn to them more often than not. Keep 'em coming. That's essentially what's going on here with Vikings...   read

Yooka-Laylee is already amazing and it's just in pre-alpha

Today, the Yooka-Laylee Toybox was released for backers (note: I'm in that group), providing a brief look at the game by way of a pre-alpha sandbox. It's...glorious.   read

Nioh sure has some ugly demons

Good news: Team Ninja's Nioh will have another playable demo on PlayStation 4. Bad news: this so-called "beta demo" won't appear until August 23, and like the alpha build before it, we'll only be able to test it out for a limited time. Come...   read

Ace Team and Atlus are doing Rock of Ages II

Ace Team is making a sequel to 2011's fantastic action/tower defense game Rock of Ages and I found the news so surprising and uplifting that I forgot I was sick for a few minutes there. I'm that into it. As a boulder, you weave around or j...   read

Absolver's tactical action hits all the right notes for me

Devolver Digital is coming into E3 in a few weeks with a couple of unannounced games. Absolver, an "online combat RPG" for PC and consoles, is one of them. Definitely watch the trailer to get a feel for how it flows. "Battles between warri...   read

NieR: Automata screens are hot as hell

While I have at least heard the lauded soundtrack, I also have not played Nier, the cult classic RPG that Square Enix is bafflingly bringing back with Platinum Games at the helm. We interviewed them after the PS4-exclusive iNieR: Automata ...   read

Whoa, where did Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight come from?

It's not every day I come across a cool-looking new game that turns out to be a part of a long-running series, but Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight is precisely that. It's the fourth installment in Bombservice's line of 2D action-platf...   read

First screenshots of Dontnod's action-RPG Vampyr are especially dark

We've already seen a little bit of what to expect from Dontnod's upcoming action role-playing game Vampyr, through both a teaser video and some concept art. Both showed a dark world, in both the feasting-on-the-blood-of-humans and the it-is...   read

Which of these Dragon Quest Heroes II characters should be on my team?

Ben was right. I don't know how anyone could play Dragon Quest Heroes and not come out the other side wanting to be best buds with Yangus. I'm hopeful he'll show up in the sequel, but for now, let's take a closer look at the recently confir...   read

3DS action-RPG Sadame coming to the West

Hot new Dark Souls III screens include eerie tiny king

Ah, screenshots. Some real classic, old-school video game journalism. More than anything I want to know what it is that compelled Bandai Namco to put out new Dark Souls III screens on a Wednesday night. Maybe something's fun happening in Ja...   read

That new Attack on Titan game freaks me out

It's not like I was going to sleep tonight, anyway, Attack on Titan. A handful of audio-less gameplay clips from Koei Tecmo's upcoming PS4, PS3, and PS Vita action game have surfaced on the official Japanese site. Lots of zooming around, sl...   read

Scribblenauts developer hopes for $500,000 on Fig for its next game

When I hear "5th Cell," my mind goes to the good times I spent with 2008's action-tower defense Lock's Quest or 2009's creative puzzle platformer Scribblenauts. Those were cute, inventive 2D games. I definitely don't think of Hybrid, whose ...   read

Mushroom 11 spreads its spores on October 15

Back when I first played Mushroom 11, more than a ago at PAX East 2014, it was a cool concept. Judging by the launch trailer below (and Brett's preview from earlier this year), Untame has really expanded on that concept, working it into a f...   read

Kamiya: Scalebound 'not a simple action game that Platinum is known for'

First, note that I wanted to get Scalebound's Hideki Kamiya to say, "Ask your mom" on video, but gamescom meetings are too tight, too perpetually behind to get much good one on one in. Still, I got to see an extended playthrough of Scalebou...   read
