Mafia III protagonist's life has been anything but a cakewalk

We know that Mafia III's Lincoln Clay hasn't had it easy. He's a black man in the American south during the 1960s (a struggle that developer Hangar 13 hopes to do justice with its New Bordeaux setting). He's also a Vietnam veteran. Oh yeah...

First look at Warcraft film features beefcake orc nipples

I'm still a bit sad to have lost director Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) to years of a Warcraft film (now pushed back into June of 2016), but maybe those of you who are into it will get a not-sucky game movie out of it. I am getting my bo...

Mondays are dumb, eat some Kirby snacks

I hate to ruin the magic, but it's not too difficult to make Kirby snacks. Is it round and pink? Yes? Then it's a Kirby snack. Is it not round and pink? Yes? I don't know what the hell you just did. How did you screw this up? It's like an ...

Review: Kirby and the Rainbow Curse

More games need cupcakes as playable characters

I'm a jerk who totally forgot about The Behemoth's Game 4 despite playing a fun chunk of the tactical role-playing title alongside its narrator, Will Stamper, and loving every minute of it. So to selfishly put it back on my mind -- and to ...

Another cupcake-y tease for The Behemoth's next game

Castle Crashers and BattleBlock Theater studio The Behemoth is bringing this thing to RTX this weekend in Austin, Texas. What is it? (Besides a cupcake, obviously.) Dunno. But if you've been following "Game 4," you'll likely recognize the c...

Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake is not as simple as it looks

Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake saw success on Kickstarter, and it's coming along nicely as evidence by our interview at PAX East. It looks super cute and simplistic, but there's way more depth than you'd imagine here. A deep story, lots of ...

Sonic Lost World tastes like pancakes and candy

What is it with Sonic games on Nintendo consoles and levels constructed entirely out of sweets? Sonic Colors had Sweet Mountain, and Sonic Lost World has Desert Ruins -- that is "desert" with one "s," as in the hot and sandy place. This nor...

This Surgeon Simulator cake is super gross

The guys behind Surgeon Simulator 2013 had a special cake made to celebrate the game's success. It's themed after what you do in the game, and well, it's pretty damn gross. So gross that I put it below the fold in case you're a big baby th...
