#Previews


The Last Guardian preview
  Watch Video The years-long layup leading up to The Last Guardian's release has been, Oh I just fucking know the cute dog/bird/animal thing is going to die. The death of a beloved animal pal is an easy emotional trigger that can easily ba...   read

Ghost Recon Wildlands
When Ubisoft announced it was taking Ghost Recon to Bolivia almost exactly one year ago, I was kind of into it. Wildlands gave me a Far Cry vibe, but on a grander scale, and with continuous cooperative pla...   read

Final Chapter Prologue
  Watch Video Don't let its ridiculous name fool you; Kingdom Hearts 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue is an important installment in the Kingdom Hearts franchise. That's because, no matter what it manages to accomplish story-wise...   read

 


Final Fantasy XV
A few weeks ago, I was set loose in an early section of Final Fantasy XV ahead of E3, and I still have Florence and the Machine's cover of "Stand by Me" buzzing around my head. The sweeping track isn't just intended for trail...   read

Gears of War 4
Gears of War 4 plays a lot like you'd expect a Gears of War game to play. Steven said as much when he previewed the multiplayer component a few months back. The series is so deeply entrenched in its own style that change...   read

 
LawBreakers
For the past couple of years, a very specific series of actions has played out at pre-E3 events in Los Angeles. As part of a large group, we've demoed two team shooters (I'll refrain from naming them). After the round ended a...   read

NHL 17 preview
  Watch Video Two years ago, EA Sports shipped NHL 15 -- the first "next-gen" installment in the perennially fantastic NHL franchise -- in bare bones condition. It was a glaring misstep, and the developer has spent years trying to right t...   read

Abzu
Water levels have long been met with a combination of derision and dread. Plummeting into the depths in platformers over the years has lead to some incredible memories, but control and pacing issues often elicit a groan from ...   read

Necropolis preview
  Watch Video I have long been looking forward to Necropolis, the dungeon-crawling action roguelite from Shadowrun Returns maker Harebrained Schemes. With uncertainty surrounding the immediate future of the Dark Souls series, I'm going to...   read

Street Fighter V preview
  Watch Video Street Fighter V launched four months ago without an actual story mode, save for the individual character prologues that featured Bengus artwork that glued together several fights easy enough for a literal baby to win them. A...   read

Music VR
  Watch Video Listening to music is one of my favorite activities in this world. Not hearing music, but listening to music. Giving music my full, undivided attention. I'll often sit on my bedroom floor with my back against the bed, close m...   read

Deus Ex GO
  Watch Video Square Enix's Montréal studio has a knack for taking the publisher's most important franchises and creating mobile adaptations of them. Thus far, it's the GO series that has proven to be the most successful, as bo...   read

Deus Ex
  Watch Video Deus Ex's newest augmentation has virtual reality sensibilities. Not actual real-world virtual reality, but a game mode designed to mimic it in the most cyberspace of ways. At a pre-E3 event in Los Angeles, Deus Ex: Mankind D...   read

Minecraft Battle
It sounds cliché, but I could probably play Minecraft for many more years to come. I picked it up while it was in alpha yet here I am, still enjoying split-screen with friends, adventuring solo, and discoveri...   read

Loot Rascals
  Watch Video I came into playing Loot Rascals at a recent indie-game-night event not knowing what it was, or who was making it, or anything at all about it, really, other than the name and what it implies. Loot? It's everywhere in gaming...   read

Civilization VI
Does that look like a man you'd dare cross? There was a brief moment, after Theodore Roosevelt introduced himself, that I contemplated turning my back on his tentative kindness. The plan, as I imagined it: I'd try my best to ...   read

This War of Mine
  Watch Video Most video games about war focus on the glory of combat, vanquishing an evil foe through prowess and cunning. This is even truer for tabletop games; I can't think of many games about war that aren't about how cool it is to do...   read

Preview
  Watch Video When indie developers ask me what they can do to get their game noticed by press, one of the first things I tend to tell them is that they need to be able to sum it up with as few words as possible. A subject line, a tweet, o...   read

Seven preview
  Watch Video I shouldn't like Seven as much as I did. The RPG comes from some of the guys behind The Witcher 3, a game that never really hooked me, and was heavily inspired by Thief, a game I'm terrible at. I don't know how they did it, b...   read

Goliath
  Watch Video Going by the towering monsters and robots gracing Goliath's menu screen, you'd be forgiven for thinking Whalebox's upcoming game involved clashes between sky-scraping beast. In truth, the game's scale is a little more Titanfa...   read

Let It Die
Grasshopper Manufacture (GhM) has built up a reputation over the years for being "different" in ways that some love and others hate. That's not necessarily what the studio wants though. My conversations with GhM founder Goich...   read

I'm sorry
  Watch Video On the final day of PAX East, I woke up after getting a measly four or so hours of sleep. I'd been ill (since birth, but also sick for the past couple of days), my back hurt, my legs hurt, and I had a headache. I had two goal...   read

Purrview from CATS East
  Watch Video When I wrote about a non-hipster walking simulator for Cliffy B just before PAX, I had no idea there was already a game that was basically that, only it's 2D and features colorful animals.  Night in the Woods i...   read

Hands-on Jedpressions
  Watch Video A roguelike platformer where you're trying to find trinkets to cheer up your only friend -- that just happens to be a giant, land-bound whale named Sally -- was my favorite game at PAX East this year. Are you surprised? ...   read
