See how Snake Pass got its slithering movements just right

"The best way to get a snake to look like a snake is to find someone who's owned a snake." The thing that first drew me to Snake Pass was the curious fact that its creator, Seb Liese, used to be a biology teacher. Now Sumo Digital is talki...   read

ReCore, a game that shipped incomplete, is going to get a 'Definitive Edition'

It's a well-tread industry practice for publishers to eventually bundle a game with all of its add-ons in a "Definitive Edition" that supposedly represents the most complete way to experience it. Really, it's a second chance at retail month...   read

Early on, the Bakers had a dog in Resident Evil 7

There could've been a Baker family pooch in Resident Evil 7! That's my main takeaway from this first making-of video from Capcom, but it's far from the only production insight featured. Part of me is sad that idea didn't make the cut, but ...   read

Overwatch's long haul approach is fantastic: Director hints at map editor

As they've proven over the course of the past few decades on PC, Blizzard supports their games long term -- whether it's by way of more content, or just compatibility patches. I fully expect Overwatch to be around for a long time, and ...   read

Review: Macbat 64

I've never pitched a game to someone with a prototype, but I'd imagine Macbat 64 isn't far off from what publishers would have seen when looking at prototypes for Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong 64. That is to say, bite-sized levels...   read

Killing Floor 2 adds a new mode, maps, and weapons

At the risk of reminding Zack that we played Killing Floor 2 together once, had a good time, then proceeded to never cooperatively* fend off the Zed hordes again, I'd like to point out that there's a free new Descent Content Pack out now fo...   read

Dark Souls III is getting a new patch that increases its framerate on the PS4 Pro

This has happened before, but it's still weird to see us entering an era of "PS4 Pro exclusive patches." The next one on the docket is Dark Souls III, which will be rolling out patch 1.11 soon across all platforms, but the PS4 Pro specifica...   read

Orisa is off limits in Overwatch's competitive mode for a week

It's not unusual to see a new character, in say, a MOBA, disabled from the roster until a week after their launch. As a lot of developers recognize, it can be jarring, jumping into a competitive mindset and having players first-pick the new...   read

Review: Everything

At first glance, a game with a title like "Everything" seems like it might be difficult to describe. Like trying to pitch a show about nothing. Fortunately, things get quite a bit easier if you break it down a bit. Everything is a game abou...   read
