Viking settlement builder Northgard seems like the good stuff

Shortly into starting up this trailer for Northgard, a city-building real-time strategy game about viking voyagers, I hit pause to see if it would make it out in 2016 unlike so many other games getting announced this time of the year. It w...   read

NSFWish: I cannot handle the rollercoaster that is this cosplay twitter account

It's been a little while since we've had some cosplay on the home page, and we usually run that sort of thing on the weekend.  In an inexperienced attempted to fix this my journey went horribly awry. Somewhere down the rabbit hole of s...   read

The club can't even handle these Berserk Warriors screens

Several days ago it was confirmed that Zodd will be making his way into Berserk Musou as a playable character (in both his humanoid in Apostle forms), but all we had to go off of was a few old screens of a boss fight and a very low quality ...   read

Yeah, I'm not sold on Quake Champions yet

Quake Champions was a nice surprise out of E3, but the teaser didn't give us much to on, and talk of classes and abilities turned some long-time fans off entirely. Today's gameplay footage out of QuakeCon is a better showing, inherently, t...   read

Action-RPG Vikings - Wolves of Midgard has mythology going for it

There has been an abundance of action-RPGs that source their stories, settings, and characters from mythology, but I still find myself drawn to them more often than not. Keep 'em coming. That's essentially what's going on here with Vikings...   read

Review: Xbox One S

Microsoft had a lot of catching up to do. I'll spare you the history once again of how badly it bungled the announcement of the Xbox One, but since then, it has made strides. The UI is a lot better than it used to be (especially now with th...   read

Persona 5 battle-wear is my fetish

I loved Persona 4's vibrant pop aesthetic just fine. Entering the TV world to the tune of catchy department store jingles while wearing school clothes (or, later, the Dojima costume!!!). And I like that Persona 5 is doing something differen...   read

Shutterstock offers VR stock images, gets roasted by LA Mag

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

Heroes of the Storm's Auriel looks to be the most technical support yet

I had a chance to sit with Blizzard and chat about Heroes of the Storm's upcoming Auriel, and she seems to be in really good hands. Although Medivh is a specialist that has undertones of a support, a true healer hasn't been added since Octo...   read

Good news: Team Ninja's Nioh will have another playable demo on PlayStation 4. Bad news: this so-called "beta demo" won't appear until August 23, and like the alpha build before it, we'll only be able to test it out for a limited time. Come...   read
