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

We're less than a month out from Rez Infinite, and here I was thinking we might not get a sampling of the all-new "Area X" before the rhythmic arcade shooter launches for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR. I thought Enhance Games was going ...   read

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

I'm not expecting every big PlayStation 4 release to end up with a patch enabling it to take advantage of the PS4 Pro's more powerful hardware, but it is surprising to hear that a hugely successful game like The Witcher 3 -- a title that ha...   read

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
