I'm going to be a better Tamagotchi owner this time

Admittedly, I was never the most responsible Tamagotchi owner out there but, if given a second chance, I think I could raise one of these little digital creatures right. I'll feed it, clean up after it, the works! Two decades later, Bandai ...

WayForward's Mummy game is two weeks away

I'm still upbeat about WayForward's The Mummy Demastered, a game that looks far better than you'd ever expect from an official adaptation of 2017's lackluster The Mummy. It's a metroidvania that seems to lean much more on the back half of t...

Destiny 2's prestige raid pushed to next week

Bungie intended for Tuesday to mark the release of both the Iron Banner PvP event and the prestige version of the Leviathan raid, but only the former is happening tomorrow. What's to blame? An exploit. The studio only described the exploit ...

Dead Rising 4's new mode looks real silly

Sometimes, all it takes is an image. "That's it. I'm writing this up. Folks need to see." This screenshot of Frank West pulling off his best Sissel-from-Ghost Trick impression is one such example. What's going on here? The Dead Rising seri...

Destiny 2's Iron Banner and prestige raid are incoming

The Iron Banner is set to debut in Destiny 2 next week, but much like the sequel's PvP in general, the Crucible event won't follow the same format as before. For starters, it's sticking with the game's four-vs.-four structure, and "your fig...

Star Wars Battlefront II is a much-needed step up

I've spent a few hours with the Star Wars Battlefront II multiplayer beta, and, you know what? I wouldn't mind playing for a few more hours rolling around as a droid or going HAM as Darth Maul. Shallow as the last game often felt, I stuck w...

Iron Galaxy's ogre-slaying action game Extinction looks slick

This is my first time seeing Extinction, Iron Galaxy's action game about fending off giant ogres, and what an intro! The announcement a few months back was only a cinematic trailer, but today is all about gameplay. The scale of the monsters...

It's the perfect time to start fresh in Dark Souls

For way too long now I've been telling myself I'm overdue for a fresh run through Bloodborne, but it looks like I'll need to postpone those plans yet again. The Dark Souls reddit community is starting its three-week "Return to Lordran" even...

Playing Cuphead has made me want to seek out and watch a bunch of the 1930s cartoons from which it draws inspiration, but in the mean time, here's a real cool semi-related thing: YouTube user Lazy Game Reviews has hooked the game up to disp...

Look out for the limited-time Gran Turismo Sport demo

I hope you aren't burned out on racing games for the year. Following a delay, Gran Turismo Sport is pushing toward an October 17 launch, but before then, you'll be able to go hands-on with a demo. There are some less-than-ideal restrictions...

Welp, Dead Orbit won Destiny 2's first Faction Rally

Dead Orbit, Future War Cult, or New Monarchy -- who'd you pick? I didn't have strong feelings about any of Destiny 2's factions, so I went with Dead Orbit on a whim. It just felt right at the time. Also, crucially, Arach Jalaal was just too...

Take a look at this week's Star Wars Battlefront II beta

The Star Wars Battlefront II beta is nearly here and based on how well the beta for the last game went, it should be huge. We recapped the modes and maps last week, but now we've got a concise video to match those words. I'm glad DICE is i...
