Switch Port Report: Rain World

Nic Rowen's review of Rain World seemed sympathetic but sad, which makes sense given that the game does a lot to invoke those two feelings. The bad news is, he was also feeling pretty disappointed when he said "I feel so badly for...

Review: Death's Gambit

It's been a hell of a year for fans of indie games inspired by the all-time great Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and its ilk. I feel like I've been on a prolonged 2D action game bender. While some of these titles are much more directly ...

Prepare yourselves for Harvey Birdman, Attorney General

In these fraught TV times, where your favorite shows are murdered and reanimated with reckless abandon, it's understandable to feel like great shows are never bound to live long. And that's exactly how fans of Harvey Birdman, Attorney at...

Pool Panic looks totally unhinged (and I'm into it)

Adult Swim Games has done a good job of picking up off-kilter projects, but Pool Panic from developer Rekim feels particularly on-brand. It's a game about sentient pool balls doing anything and everything pool-ball-people could conceivably ...

Pool Panic is brilliantly stupid

People often assume that lighthearted comedies all lack depth, or that their creators don't work just as hard as those that specialize in other genres. This is part of why we so rarely see a comedy film win an Oscar. Knowing this makes me ...

FLCL's sequel brings out The Pillows goodness on June 2

Whenever a title finishes its run, there's a good chance that its story is complete. As FLCL's new seasons hit us with a cool trailer, I'm still siding with those who think that the sequels aren't necessary. Aside f...

Ricky and Morty season 4 hasn't even been ordered yet

I'm pretty sure I'm not alone when I say that Rick and Morty is one of the best shows that is currently airing on Adult Swim. Between its pitch black sense of humor and its wild adventures, the show hit a sweet spot for ...

Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality hits PS4 in April

For as many PlayStation VR games as I own, so few of them are physical copies. Sometimes that's by choice (it's a lot easier to swap between games with a headset on when you don't have to change discs, and file sizes are typically small), b...

Review: Battle Chef Brigade

Battle Chef Brigade is a delightful concoction. It's one part side-scrolling brawler, complemented by a series of match-three puzzles in the form of a cooking competition. With a dash of light RPG progression and beautiful, hand-drawn visua...

Battle Chef Brigade cooking up on Switch and PC November 20

I've been looking forward to Trinket Studios' Battle Chef Brigade ever since it was announced. I love the idea of a game along the lines of the Toriko manga where you just fight a bunch of things in order to build ingredients to cook ...

Review: Rick and Morty (Season 3)

Rick and Morty is a dense series. Not because of its content per se, but because of the discussions it brings to the table. It's a series constantly at odds with its predilection for toilet humor and the overbearing cynicism of its delivery...

Hell yeah, Duck Game is coming to PS4 next week

Duck Game is a great game, albeit one I don't want to squeeze a bunch of people around my cramped PC setup to play. As such, I've been not-so-patiently waiting for the PS4 port. It'll be here soon. I'm getting giddy just thinking back on S...

Review: Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality

I don't know how I stumbled upon Rick & Morty, but I'm glad I did. More so, I'm glad it's getting a decent amount of play considering how bleak it is, and that it's branching out into more than just one series that we have to wait forev...

This week's Rain World update addresses common complaints

It's a shame about Rain World's brutal reputation, but I'm still keeping an eye on it to see how things progress from here. Videocult has already responded with a patch "intended to accommodate some early player feedback and polish assorted...

Rick and Morty pays Pokemon homage with pixel art battle

There's already an entire, supposedly good Pokemon parody Rick and Morty game you can play -- Pocket Mortys -- but perhaps the stealth April 1 premiere of season 3 of the show has you jonesing for a full minute of Mr. Meseeks mayhem as ani...

Review: Rain World

I have a known fondness for difficult games. When applied correctly, adversity and challenge can raise a game to another level. I've gleefully lapped up the absurdities and frustrations of titles like Darkest Dungeon and the Binding of Isaa...

Rain World is ready for a March 28 release on PC and PS4

You know we're getting close to Rain World's launch when Videocult is trading in gifs for a trailer. Sure enough, the ecosystem-survival platformer is headed to PC and PlayStation 4 on March 28. We'll soon be sneaking and leaping for dear ...

Kingsway is a neat-looking RPG in an operating system

Andrew Morrish's Kingsway looks like a good time. It's a fantasy role-playing game set within a familiar but probably-legally-distinct-enough faux operating system, and this trailer nails that vibe. Things like your health and mana status,...

Just watched Bohemian Rhapsody, and its really disappointing, considering that Rami Malek was great as Freddie and the cast was good The plot structure was very clichéd, some of the script was really cringy, and too much artistic
