Try to count the things that can kill you in No Man's Sky

The last time we saw No Man's Sky, we had a cheerier outlook. It was all about diplomacy and trading and making new alien friends. That all sounds great. There's an entire universe out there and new opportunities await. Unfortunately, new ...   read

Okhlos is the mythological mob simulator I didn't know I wanted

Okhlos from Coffee Powered Machine is the next wacky and wild game out of indie publisher Devolver Digital. Have you heard about it yet? You should hear about it. How does right now work? In theory, it's a game that fundamentally gets me. P...   read

Ghost in the Shell Online has a confusing full title, and potential

While people have been arguing about the Scarlett Johansson casting for the Ghost in the Shell film, I've been busy re-acquainting myself with the series. It...took a while. The original movie? Near perfect. The fact that a multimedia hydra...   read

We Happy Few puts a new face on survival, but it's not ready for its close-up yet

When it took the stage at Microsoft's E3 presentation this year, Compulsion Games' We Happy Few was easily one of the most intriguing titles of the show, promising a trippy story set in the drug-addled English township of Wellington We...   read

Worms W.M.D plays great, but is still the same ol' can of Worms

I've been playing the Worms series since the '90s. The height of my exposure was by way of the Game Boy version of Armageddon, which I could conveniently play during car rides -- on a portable, the pass-and-play style was almost how it was ...   read

Balrog's got punches like a truck, truck, truck

Well, this is surprising. I find myself playing Balrog a lot in Street Fighter V. I generally judge how well I'll perform by how efficient I can do their trials. I ended up doing terribly at Balrog's trials, but have had really good su...   read

No Trace looks like slick low-poly stealth action

I will always have an extra-soft spot for quality pixel art, but we could surely use more low-poly independent games, especially ones that bring something like Hitman to mind. This is No Trace, an upcoming top-down stealth-action game from...   read

Review: Tumblestone

I can't think of the last puzzle game that had a color/shape-matching mechanic that I've genuinely enjoyed. It might be none of them, actually. I just never felt satisfied after completing a puzzle. I'm more of a candy eater than a candy cr...   read

Heroes of the Storm developers talk hero balance and map design

As you may have seen, Auriel is set to debut in Heroes of the Storm in the near future, and she looks like one interesting, and technical addition. So that got me thinking -- how does the team approach balancing, should she turn into a...   read

CD Projekt Red is hoping that Sony will open up console cross-platform play
