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

Planet Coaster's new alpha opens up coaster building and terrain editing

I've tinkered with Planet Coaster's first "early-bird" alpha build and while it wasn't far enough along for me to get terribly invested in my theme park, it did leave me feeling optimistic about what's to come. The crowds look fantastic, a...   read

Three weeks to go until The Witcher 3's Blood and Wine expansion drops

Blood and Wine, the "final expansion" for The Witcher 3, is dropping on May 31, 2016. I can't get over how gosh-darn gorgeous the setting of Toussaint is (never mind that man brutally sliced up into little pieces). According to game direct...   read

If you miss Kirby's Dream Course, take a look at Bulby

Kirby's Dream Course holds a special place in gaming history. Despite releasing more than 20 years ago and featuring a unique gameplay hook, it didn't see many copycats. Sure, there have been other golf games, but nothing has been quite lik...   read
