Hands-on with a near-finished Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

The eviction noticed burned pink on the apartment door. Neighbors stood callously outside on the second floor walk basking in the white foglight of the open-air atrium, whispering at eavesdrop levels about his financials woes. He sat on the...   read

Dang, I should've been following Shiness this whole time!

Do you know about Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom? I didn't know a thing about it -- not until a couple of weeks ago, at E3 2016, where I was given a rapid-fire rundown. Schedule changes and general last-day-of-the-expo busyness meant I had ...   read

Wilson's Heart was my biggest surprise of E3

During one of my appointments at E3, I was ushered into a room at the Oculus booth to take a look at something called "Wilson's Heart." I didn't know what type of game it would be, or who was making it, or anything, really -- I just saw the...   read

LawBreakers defies both gravity and expectations

For the past couple of years, a very specific series of actions has played out at pre-E3 events in Los Angeles. As part of a large group, we've demoed two team shooters (I'll refrain from naming them). After the round ended and everyone had...   read

Ryu gets his punk ass beat in Street Fighter V's story mode

Street Fighter V launched four months ago without an actual story mode, save for the individual character prologues that featured Bengus artwork that glued together several fights easy enough for a literal baby to win them. And while Street...   read

Here's what to expect from the Gears of War 4 multiplayer beta

Despite its bro appeal and casual association with the likes of Halo and Call of Duty, multiplayer in the first Gears of War 10 years ago was practically tacked on. Former Epic producer and continued Gears rudder at The Coalition, Rod Fergu...   read

Quantum Break plays like a dream

I last previewed Quantum Break at E3 2013, a lifetime ago, and had my reservations around the interlaced television show aspect that must have come from Microsoft's then "sports, sports, television" strategy that saw the studio trying to cr...   read

It happened to me! I had fun playing Paragon

Epic Games (Gears of War) announced Paragon (PS4, PC) at PlayStation Experience, an in-tight, third-person MOBA from the developer of seminal shooters like Gears of War and Unreal Tournament. Yes, everything is a MOBA these days. For me tha...   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

EA could stand to put out more games like Unravel

Unravel is an upcoming puzzle-platform game about a little yarn guy on a journey through nature, and it is such a delight. It's one of those titles you'll want to complete in a single sitting, totally absorbed the whole way through. It's al...   read

Trip AT-ATs on Hoth and blow up the Death Star in Disney Infinity 3.0

If you're making a Star Wars game with pilotable ships, I'm going to want to zip around Hoth in a snowspeeder and tie knots around some AT-ATs. I'll also want to shoot down a bunch of TIE Fighters on my path to destroy the Death Star. We've...   read

TERA Online's new Gunner is the most action-oriented MMO class I've played

I was really into TERA Online when it first came out. I couldn't stop playing for days on end, and even after I cut back, I was still running dungeons for months. But when it time to create another character, I quit because it was way ...   read

We Happy Few's bright exterior hides a dark secret

For a while, the general aesthetic in games was dark and grimy, with muted colors to convey dismal feelings. The more recent counterculture of color was welcomed, bringing happiness back to the medium. But a funny thing happens when colorfu...   read

Affordable Space Adventures is the Wii U experience I imagined in 2012

When Nintendo first unveiled the Wii U, my mind raced with ideas for games that could be created with the two-screen interface. A lot of the cool stuff that the DS did could be transferred to the big screen. Better yet, titles like those th...   read

Planet of the Eyes is a treacherous place for Polaroid robots

Crash landing on an alien planet is the worst. There's hazardous flora, deadly fauna, and even rock formations that seem to have some sort of blood lust. That just piles on top of the existential crisis of being a robot with an unknown purp...   read

Co-published by Devolver, Breach & Clear: Deadline isn't just another zombie game

Infamous: First Light shows off how great Fetch really is

Command a tiger that can turn invisible in Far Cry 4

Far Cry 3 had some pretty wild moments. Like, remember when Vaas was dancing around on the stripper pole? Good stuff. Far Cry 4 will have some crazy segments as well, but these are a little more grounded to the core of the game.  Scatt...   read
