Deus Ex: Mankind Divided's Breach mode adds an arcade twist

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 Divided pro...   read

Minecraft's 'Battle mini game' is a new official gametype that fans will dig

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 discovering new worlds o...   read

Loot Rascals makes a wonderful first impression

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 these days, bu...   read

I teamed up with Teddy Roosevelt in Civilization VI and he gave me pies

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 act neutral on ...   read

This War of Mine: The Board Game captures the despair of the video game

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 dominate opponent...   read

Move or Die is fast, chaotic, and an absolute blast

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, or a title shoul...   read

Seven is an open world filled with loot and potential

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, but Imgn.pro and...   read

Goliath could stand tall, but it'll need some polish first

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 Titanfall than Ev...   read

Let It Die maintains Suda's sense of style without sacrificing accessibility

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 Goichi Suda over the...   read

Apologies to the PlayStation rep I backhanded at PAX East

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 goals in mind for t...   read

Night in the Woods is an adventure game for millennials who shrug at Hot Topic

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 is a colorful ad...   read

Gonner was hands down my favorite game at PAX East 2016

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? How can somethi...   read

Ghost Song blew away my expectations, made me die a lot

Dead and Buried was easily the best shooter at PAX East this year

Raw Data wasn't the only shooter I played in virtual reality at PAX East, nor was it the best. That title belongs to the Oculus Rift exclusive Dead and Buried, a first-person cowboy shootout simulator. The Oculus area at the expo was d...   read

Katana Zero provides a satisfying challenge for masochistic players

Solo developer Askiisoft is no stranger to creating challenging games. Tower of Heaven and Pause Ahead both gave me a run for my money (even as freeware), and the upcoming action title Katana Zero is no exception. The gameplay is perha...   read

The Culling was born of frustration. It began life as a co-operative alternative to survival games where players regularly screw each other over, like Rust or DayZ. But then as it became apparent that human nature inevitably makes...   read

Divinity: Original Sin 2 has a PvP mode, apparently
