Review: Rivals of Aether

"Smash clone" is an ugly generalization. It's usually given to titles in a subgenre which, honestly, should be a lot more prominent than it is. Despite many tries, non-Nintendo developers have yet to nail the platform fighter. What most of ...   read

New images surface from one of Half-Life 2's cancelled episodes

Before vanishing into the ether and becoming gaming's longest running gag, Half-Life 2 was actually supposed to get more than just one final episode. While we've only ever known the name of Arcane Studios Return to Ravenholm, some new image...   read

Review: Macbat 64

I've never pitched a game to someone with a prototype, but I'd imagine Macbat 64 isn't far off from what publishers would have seen when looking at prototypes for Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong 64. That is to say, bite-sized levels...   read

Tripping through Songbringer's spiritual adventure

Songbringer exists at the intersection of nostalgia and innovation. Within the game's pixels are millions of unique worlds. It's The Legend of Zelda by way of Hyper Light Drifter, with one important distinction. Every player must input a si...   read

Review: Poi

What if I told you there is a game you can play right now that combines some of the best mechanics of 3D Mario games with a bunch of cute original characters, locations, and enemies? And what if I told you that very game also failed to be c...   read

Outlast 2 banned in Australia for rape scene

Human or not, Australia's Classification Board has decided Outlast 2 is too obscene for sale even with an R18+ rating, thus making the game impossible to sell in its current, unedited form. The scene in question suggests, but does...   read

Crawl's Early Access exit and console debut are set for April 11

With the news that Crawl is nearing a full launch on April 11, 2017, I'm left wondering if I had even realized, until just now, that Powerhoof was still doing its dungeon-based friend-slaying thing on Steam Early Access. Well, either way, n...   read

Dead Rising 4 shambles over to Steam today

Something about Dead Rising 4 is dead and it's not all the zombies (because they are actually undead, post-alive). It's Microsoft's timed-exclusivity. Capcom Vancouver's slapstick, Christmas-themed zombie survival game has broken free ...   read

Snake Pass is a relaxing, legless take on 3D platformers

It took me a few minutes to wrap my head around Snake Pass. The 3D platformer seems to have all the trappings of a golden era Rare joint. From enchanting environments, right down to a duo of goofy-looking animal heroes, almost every part of...   read

Paradigm is a bizarre and surreal adventure game, and it's heading to PC early next month

I'll be the first to admit that I'm a relative newcomer to the point-and-click adventure game genre. When I was younger, I almost exclusively played games such as Spyro the Dragon, Jak and Daxter and Ratchet and Clank on my family...   read

Redeemer is brutal, bloody, and old-school

I’ve always had a fondness for classic beat-'em-ups. Games like Turtles in Time and Final Fight are favorites of mine and getting newer, more modern takes on the genre is usually an easy success. Sure, we get a dud every now and the...   read
