Gary takes on the Elite Four in this Pokemon Generations short

You won't hear anyone say "Smell ya later!" in this third Pokémon Generations episode, but you will hear more than a few instances of "Poke-a-mon" and see a cool, albeit brief first-person Pokémon battle. The subject matter i...   read

Urien's classic outfit is lurking in Street Fighter V

Urien is the latest addition to the Street Fighter V roster, and if you're looking to set his body free, I'm happy to offer some small assistance. By holding LP+MK+HP before a match, you can get the brawler out of his business attire and i...   read

Whoa! These Steel Assault gifs woke me right up

It wasn't until after Steel Assault's Kickstarter campaign had wrapped up and its developers had decided to shift the art direction that I became familiar with the retro-style action-platform game. This could well be your first time hearin...   read

The Eldar look like a real nuisance in Dawn of War III

To date, Relic has focused on the Space Marine side of Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III, but that's only one of the playable factions in the campaign. We'll also get to command the resourceful Orks and the oh-so-pesky Eldar. It's now the l...   read

Doom's latest update brings out free-for-all deathmatch

Even if I have little to no interest in returning to Doom's multiplayer, I'm glad to see it have continued support. Following the fairly recent Unto the Evil DLC (more maps and gear, plus a new Harvester demon), id Software has pushed out ...   read

Subnautica has more monsters for us to avoid

Yikes! I prefer to play Subnautica as a serene underwater exploration type of experience, but sometimes, the Early Access game has other ideas in mind for my lone survivor. Sometimes, there are horrible nightmare beasts, and you don't have...   read

A brief look at Hitman: Colorado before Tuesday's release

After some of the far-flung adventures we've been on with Agent 47, I think a trip to the United States sounds just fine. The game's fifth episode, releasing this Tuesday, makes the trek out to Colorado. This trailer is a hint of things to...   read

The creators of Pokemon Uranium are moving on

Last we heard from the developers of Pokémon Uranium, the fan game was "more alive than ever before" despite official download links being voluntarily taken down after it was made "clear" to the team that Nintendo wasn't cool with th...   read

Keep an eye on action-RPG Shiness this December

Admittedly, Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom isn't my normal jam. It's doing the grand action-adventure RPG thing, which I can occasionally sink deep into, but it's rare these days that I feel like I can take on that sort of time commitment....   read

Driveclub VR is coming in at $40

I can see a lot of PlayStation VR early adopters turning to Driveclub VR. It's going to be one of the more substantial launch-window games, and racing cars in virtual reality is a relatively easy sell. The more novel or out-there experience...   read

Blizzard is moving away from the 'Battle.net' name

Nostalgia aside, the name "Battle.net" seemed much more sensible in the mid- to late-'90s, back when Diablo and StarCraft were Blizzard's latest and greatest. The online gaming service has come a long way since then, but the name, an undeni...   read

Maybe don't watch this entire Dark Souls III DLC trailer

You might already be down for Ashes of Ariandel, the first of two add-ons coming to Dark Souls III. If that's the case, I'd say watch some -- but not all! -- of this trailer. It's made up of a handful of largely unedited encounters in the ...   read

Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse's localization slip-up makes for a good story

Tales from localization are some of the most entertaining around in this industry. Today's comes from Atlus in light of the recently-released Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse, and I like it for two reasons. One, it involves a slip-up. It's...   read

Super Mario Maker is also skipping 3D support on 3DS

With the knowledge that the 3DS port of Super Mario Maker won't let creators upload their levels online (they're just sharable locally), this latest omission -- a lack of 3D support -- feels insignificant. That said, I know some people can ...   read

Rez Infinite's Area X reminds me of Child of Eden

Arcade-inspired roguelike TumbleSeed plays as well as it looks

TumbleSeed is an audio-visual treat. I knew that much before giving it a spin. What I didn't expect was how much strategy comes into play in this arcade-inspired permadeath romp about a fragile seed on a journey up a mountain. Fast reflexe...   read

DICE is tweaking Battlefield 1's Conquest mode

A whole mess of people played the Battlefield 1 beta. 13.2 million, to be more precise. While many of us just used the limited experience to find out if Battlefield's move to WWI was indeed a good one (and to have fun with horse-related hij...   read

Orcs Must Die! Unchained is dropping PvP to focus on Survival

I loved Orcs Must Die! and its sequel. I haven't played Orcs Must Die! Unchained, the third game in the trap-laying, crossbow-firing tower defense series, and I get the sense that I'm hardly alone. The player-versus-player focus combined wi...   read

Sega really should revisit Alien: Isolation for VR

Alien: Isolation in virtual reality -- need I say more? Besides the inherent potential for terror in a game about evading a lone Xenomorph, even the more mundane sequences could work wonderfully in VR. Creative Assembly nailed the retro-fut...   read

CD Projekt isn't planning a PS4 Pro patch for The Witcher 3

Team Ninja has more changes in store for Nioh after the beta

Nioh would've been such a fitting end-of-the-year game for me. Based on everything we know about Team Ninja's brutal action-RPG and what we've played first-hand, I think it's going to be not only a time sink, but one that requires our darn-...   read
