At a cursory glance, Vampyr, developer Dontnod Entertainment's third game, could not be any more different from Life is Strange. One's an action role-playing game set in early 1900s London; the other is an exploration- and narrative-based d...   read

I generally dislike drip-fed information, but I make two notable exceptions -- Pokemon and Smash Bros. You know that feeling when a new fighter or creature can be revealed at any moment? It brings me back to the olden days of exciting ...   read

Dark Souls III director on poise stat: 'This isn't something we are proud of'

The saga of the poise stat in Dark Souls III was pretty amazing. First, fans had no idea what it did, and much to their chagrin, From Software maintained a cheeky "it's a secret!" stance on it. Eventually though someone did seemingly f...   read

How high is Super Mario RPG on your personal all-time ranking list?

Review: Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness
