New Quantum Break trailer has a hobbit and military violence

Those extreme sound cues whenever a time travel power is used are real loud watching live. I somehow missed one of Lords of the Rings' hobbits ending up in the game -- this is still half a television show? Making an extreme third-person sh...   read

Building, crafting, crashing, and laughing in Crashlands

I'm fighting the urge to do the lazy blogger "if X and Y had a baby" thing, but I don't know if I can help myself. Crashlands looks like what would happen if The Behemoth (BattleBlock Theater) were to develop Klei Entertainment's Don't Sta...   read

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 trailer darkslides a powerline

Yep, that looks like a Tony Hawk game all right. There are highly technical tricks on absurdly dangerous terrain. Grinding that increases speed instead of decreasing it. Just the right amount of jank in aerial maneuvers, as if skaters can ...   read

Ink is like Super Meat Boy if Meat Boy's blood were a rainbow

Today is a good day to celebrate rainbows, eh? I mean, every day is a good day to celebrate rainbows, and even if that weren't the case, I'd still highlight Super 91 Studios' Ink. It started as an entry to Ludum Dare 32, whose theme was "A...   read

Belated Father's Day: Throw babies in Dad Beat Dads

True story: my dad used to be quite the brawler. At a stocky 5'5" (165 cm), he was often underestimated. What he lacks in height and reach he makes up for in tenacity. What I'm trying to say is that I'm pretty sure my dad could beat up you...   read
