Bloodborne's Lady Maria is getting a $600 Japan-exclusive statue

Even if she's a character from the lone DLC for Bloodborne, Lady Maria pops up quite a bit in discussions and random artwork for the game. She's recognizable, is what I'm saying, and is probably easier to craft into a statue than a giant li...   read

Review: Styx: Shards of Darkness

The last time I played Dungeons and Dragons, I ended up in the shoes of a nasty gnome thief. A cocksure little prick who valued gold over the life expectancy of his friends, never took a shot that wasn't cheap, and would gleefully steal any...   read

Meet Jaal, a squadmate from one of Mass Effect: Andromeda's few new alien races

Forget hardcore mode, Pylon: Rogue is just plain hardcore

Reading the name Pylon: Rogue before heading into this preview gave me a few ideas. What if this was about a rogue traffic cone who, while kids are crossing the street, decides to move and cause a horrible accident? I may need psychological...   read

You won't be hacking and slashing much in the first hour of Dragon Quest Heroes 2

I’ve actually never played a Dragon Quest game before. I know of the series and some of its creatures, but my largest piece of knowledge is about how an elderly Japanese actress wanted to play IX before she died. To say I walked int...   read

I would love to see Platinum Games take on Base Wars

With an outstanding score on Metacritic and a 9/10 from our own Chris Carter, NieR: Automata has proven once again that Platinum Games is one of the best developers in the game today. So much so that seemingly every time people talk about P...   read

ELEX is odd and janky, but totally open

Breath of the Wild has given me a whole new appreciation for open-world games. I love the amount of freedom you have in tackling the quest (or not bothering with it) and the order in which you can tackle it. While games like Grand Theft Aut...   read

Redeemer is brutal, bloody, and old-school

I’ve always had a fondness for classic beat-'em-ups. Games like Turtles in Time and Final Fight are favorites of mine and getting newer, more modern takes on the genre is usually an easy success. Sure, we get a dud every now and the...   read

Action RPG 'The Caligula Effect' comes west in May

The Caligula Effect is a game I've kept my eye on for a while now. Despite lacking a AAA budget title like Persona, it seems like an engaging game among the likes of Tokyo Xanadu and Akiba's Trip. It finally comes to North Americ...   read
