Gallery of custom computer cases and hardware from Computex

A word of advice about Taiwan in June: don't wear a sports jacket unless it is made out of a beach towel. It's like 95 degrees and humid in the capital, and I made the mistake of: (a) not sleeping to catch a 4AM airport taxi, (b) being relu...   read

Pokemon Sun & Moon details more information on the 'Alola Region'

Nintendo promised more information today regarding Pokemon Sun & Moon, and we got it in video form. It's your typical drip-feed format to be sure, but fans are probably going to salivate over all of the little details. We now know that ...   read

Skylanders Imaginators, the newest game in the series, is basically Diablo

Activision is in a unique position at this point. It basically started the video game toys-to-life market, and now, a major competitor has pulled out entirely. If it was worried before, it's less worried now. It's just as well as the compan...   read

Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 6 features big names from the community

After the most recent episode of Minecraft: Story Mode, I'm looking forward to the new direction for the series. Simple, one-off episodes seem to fit better than an overwrought multi-episode arc. The sixth episode releases next week beginni...   read

Oh great, Last Guardian's boy can swim

It's not just Gravity Rush 2. IGN has (part one of!) another exclusive to end this week, this time the fabled The Last Guardian which is certainly, definitely coming out this year. It's hands-on with the first 45 minutes, mind, and doesn't...   read

Absolver's tactical action hits all the right notes for me

Devolver Digital is coming into E3 in a few weeks with a couple of unannounced games. Absolver, an "online combat RPG" for PC and consoles, is one of them. Definitely watch the trailer to get a feel for how it flows. "Battles between warri...   read

Planet Coaster's new alpha opens up coaster building and terrain editing

I've tinkered with Planet Coaster's first "early-bird" alpha build and while it wasn't far enough along for me to get terribly invested in my theme park, it did leave me feeling optimistic about what's to come. The crowds look fantastic, a...   read

Unreal Tournament has a new map to try out

After marathoning Doom's pitch-perfect campaign this past weekend and dabbling in its not-half-bad multiplayer, I've been in the mood to revisit a random assortment of first-person shooters. A little Painkiller here, a bit of Unreal Tourn...   read

New Yooka-Laylee details and 'representative' screenshots

It has been almost a year since the Kickstarter for Banjo-Kazooie-like Yooka-Laylee closed, but studio Playtonic has been mostly quiet about it, aside from the occasional new character reveal. Today the studio let loose some screenshots "re...   read

Yeah, I could go for another good Call of Cthulhu game

Ah, here we are: today we have 1) the first screenshots of Madden 17, 2) the Madden 17 cover athlete reveal, and 3) the first Madden 17 trailer. My bet is that it is not unlike Madden 16, which I reviewed last year. EA has a blog post prai...   read

Three weeks to go until The Witcher 3's Blood and Wine expansion drops

Blood and Wine, the "final expansion" for The Witcher 3, is dropping on May 31, 2016. I can't get over how gosh-darn gorgeous the setting of Toussaint is (never mind that man brutally sliced up into little pieces). According to game direct...   read
