It's time to put Way to the Woods on your radar

Way to the Woods is just the little pick-me-up I needed on a tired Monday morning. It's a game about deer exploring a world seemingly abandoned by humans, and simply put, it's lovely. I particularly like the giant cat's sewer lair. That's ...

Look for these two new DualShock 4 colors in March

I'll admit it: I'm a total sucker for alternate controller colors. Not to the point where I unnecessarily stock up on gamepads to "collect" them -- that'd get way too expensive even with just one console -- but if I'm in need of a replaceme...

The photo mode in Shadow of the Colossus sounds wonderful

Built-in capturing and streaming and photo modes continue to be a highlight for me this console generation. Some games benefit from the latter more than others and I'd say Bluepoint's Shadow of the Colossus remake for PlayStation 4 definite...
