Darkest Dungeon's Crimson Court expansion is out June 19

Games are kicking my ass right now, and it's great

"There's nothing to play right now" is an all-too-common sentiment when the novelty of holiday releases begins to wane. Personally, 2016 has already brought a wealth of Good Stuff that I'll be playing well in to the end of this year, and th...

Very Quick Tips: Darkest Dungeon

Darkest Dungeon is a terrifically difficult game that delights in torturing the player. You could spend hours fine tuning the perfect party only to encounter a new enemy type or area that absolutely demolishes them. It's a nasty game that c...

Review: Darkest Dungeon

Most games gloss right over the psychological effects of combat and stress. RPGs see parties of cheery young adventurers slaughter their way through entire countrysides worth of kobolds and giant rats for the sake of justice and good. Natha...

Darkest Dungeon update adds two new characters, fresh terror

Darkest Dungeon is my jam. I've been playing the hell out of the early access build and while I've had an absolute blast, I was reaching the bottom of the barrel in terms of current content. So it should come as no surprise that I am more t...

I must've missed hearing about Darkest Dungeon originally as there's no way I would've seen that footage (embedded again above) and gone on with my day like nothing had happened. Now, months later, this turn-based dungeon crawler has reapp...

Do you dare delve deep down into the Darkest Dungeon?

I will admit: I very nearly skipped over looking into this game after seeing its unappealingly generic title. However, I urge you to not do the same. Darkest Dungeon intends to look at the idea of dungeon crawling from a more human perspec...
