There's going to be a Clicker Heroes 2

This 1998 BioShock demake is something else

This gets my vote for today's coolest thing (that isn't new but is new to me). 98DEMAKE is a YouTube creator who takes modern video games and imagines what they might've looked like had they originally released in 1998. I've seen plenty of ...

Oh yeah, I'm down for Earth Defense Force 5

It wouldn't be Tokyo Game Show for me without a new EDF trailer. It just wouldn't! We've got four and a half minutes of footage from Sandlot's latest entry, Earth Defense Force 5, and it's a hoot. The battle scene at 2:35 with the hulking ...

The Xbox's original 'Duke' controller is making a comeback

Square Enix is hiring for a NieR project

Months later, it's still such a wonderful feeling knowing that NieR: Automata is selling as well as it is and people are loving the game enough to consider it one of the year's best releases. Would you like more where it came from? Not to s...

Vanillaware's 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim has my attention

Vanillaware and Atlus have teamed up for 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, "a departure from the studio's traditional fantasy style." While I still can't pin this one down after watching the TGS 2017 trailer -- more gameplay would've helped! -- it h...

Don't let Cuphead's art overshadow its soundtrack

Cuphead is out next Friday, and I can hardly believe it's almost here. I've been so obsessed with the exquisite art and animation that Kristofer Maddigan's big-band soundtrack has gone under-noticed. Nothing like a behind-the-scenes look at...

This Code Vein boss fight looks decent enough

Code Vein has been bouncing on and off my radar for a while now. That doesn't really change today with this boss fight playthrough from IGN. It's still a dodge-roll-heavy action-RPG with some vampiric stuff going on that's very clearly taki...
