WayForward isn't done with Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, and that's fine by me. The latest development? A Nintendo Switch version! It's in the works for a summer release, with "full details coming soon." Love that color palette. Unlike so many...   read

Sci-fi exploration game Exo One looks like a total trip

Exo One is the type of game that's better seen than explained. It makes total sense, then, that the first line under "About this project" on its Kickstarter page isn't a written summary, but a gif -- a short snippet of momentum-based gamep...   read

The composer of Jet Set Radio has new music for Hover

Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment dated on Wii U and 3DS

Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment is a fantastic expansion, and previous owners of the base game are getting it for free. The only problem is that given the (likely lucrative) timed exclusive deal with Nintendo, developer Yacht Club Ga...   read

Review: Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom

These days, it's unusual for me to actively seek out role-playing games. The allure of embarking on a grand adventure is still strong as ever, and I love assembling and growing attached to a crew of characters, but the sheer time commitment...   read

Review: Night in the Woods

I'm not sure how to describe Night in the Woods. Even after playing through the game twice, every attempt at defining it feels wrong. I want to say it's a silly 2D platformer almost as much as I think it's a soulful adventure game. Other ti...   read

Shenmue III progress update shows QTE testing

Remember "QTE Expert" from the You Arcade in Shenmue? You did play Shenmue didn't you? Not only did the game basically invent and focus on QTE's, but it even had a mini-game in the arcade that was about as literal a QTE as you can get,...   read

Narita Boy looks like an '80s-inspired fever dream

Physical Switch edition 'beyond the scope' of Yooka-Laylee Kickstarter, but they're considering it

Did you pre-order Yooka-Laylee on the Wii U, the system it was basically born to be on given that it's an homage to the Rare-led platformers during the Nintendo 64 era? Too bad! It was canceled a few weeks ago. But if you're so incline...   read
