Rumor has it that Microsoft is trying to salvage Scalebound

Mass Transit makes Cities: Skylines even more beautiful

I feel like Cities: Skylines has just the right amount of complexity. I recently went back to Sim City 2000 by comparison (which holds up!), and was taken aback by how much I had to divine (or remember) on my own. Not that it's a ...   read

A cute strategy game is coming to Switch, but it's not Advance Wars

I mean, you know Advance Wars is coming at some point on the Switch. My guess is Intelligent Systems is going to wrap on the new Switch Fire Emblem (no, not the Warriors game) then at least send a side squad to investigate it...   read

Pretty soon you'll be able to copy and paste entire decklists in Hearthstone

Two major features are coming to Hearthstone, one of which basically should have been in since the beginning. For years now I've seen fancy deck setups on reddit and YouTube and the like, and have wanted to experiment with them. But individ...   read

Another procedurally generated roguelike is heading to the Switch soon

According to developer Raw Fury Games, GoNNER is set for a June 1 release date in the UK on the Switch (and likely the US, but you can "import" it via the eShop anyway). As a roguelike platformer it'll feel right at home on the system, whic...   read

Netflix is making The Witcher TV series

All I can really do when I hear about any video game adaptation is step back, chuck any expectations out the window, and say "well, I hope it's not awful." That's exactly what I did this morning when I heard there was going to be a Witcher&...   read

Resident Evil: Revelations looks smooth on PS4, but I don't think I need it again

See how Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age has been upgraded for yourself

What old series do you want to see Sega bring back the most?

NIS America boss: 'The Japanese video game market is getting smaller'

Disgaea 5 Complete only managed to sell 20,000 units in Japan on the Switch. Sure it's a new platform, but with so many other titles doing so well already, it's not a hopeful sight. It's a lot more hopeful in the west though, as develo...   read

Tree jumping in Zelda: Breath of the Wild is my new jam
