This Super Mario 64 x Banjo-Kazooie mod is so surreal

The photo mode in Shadow of the Colossus sounds wonderful

Forza Horizon 3 rolls out 4K update for Xbox One X

Forza Motorsport 7 might've been an impressive-looking showcase title for Xbox One X at launch, but I get the feeling that plenty of folks would just as well stick with 2016's Forza Horizon 3 if given the choice. Today, the game has added n...

Xbox One is getting a new 'Duke' controller for $70

It's still hard to believe the original Xbox controller is mounting a comeback in 2018. Xbox designer Seamus Blackley and Hyperkin have updated "the Duke" for Xbox One and PC players who (for one reason or another) have fond memories of the...

Japan is getting a sweet Dark Souls Trilogy Box Set

If you were envious of Europe's Dark Souls trilogy vinyl set, you might explode when you see what's on the horizon in Japan. (Thankfully, I'm still glowing from today's news so I'm not too bothered.) Bandai Namco is putting together a Dark ...

Furi isn't flawless on Switch but it's still darn good

A few minutes into Furi's new Nintendo Switch port and all the moments of pain, satisfaction, and calming relief came rushing back to me. The Game Bakers' hybrid melee action and twin-stick shooting game has made the transition about as wel...

A handful of independent developers have "banded together" to hold a sale on the Nintendo Switch eShop. If you're one to wait for (or double dip with) Switch ports like me, this is a pleasant little list. Death Squared - $11.24 (25% off) ...
