Holy hell, you can kill the Big Boos in Super Mario World

Room-flipping puzzler Shift returns on 3DS this week

Whoa, this one brings me back. Remember Shift? The monochrome puzzle title started out as a web game eight years ago before proving popular enough to warrant a full series and ports to other platforms. Now it's back and heading to 3DS with...   read

Dang, XCOM 2 is only $12 in this Humble Monthly deal

Yesterday's news of the Long War 2 mod reminded me that I failed to snag XCOM 2 at launch and, dumber yet, while it was discounted in recent end-of-year sales. But actually, that indecisiveness has paid off -- the alien-blastin', bad-luck-c...   read

Someone pieced together The Last Guardian's world

Trico is the clear highlight of The Last Guardian (especially when he's being a good boy), but I'm also enthralled by its world, too. It's densely detailed and flows believably, just begging you to poke your head around every corner and inv...   read

Blizzard is about to fix Roadhog's ridiculous hook
