The Chaos Engine is coming back with a 'restoration'

My first reaction to this annoyingly teaserish trailer for The Chaos Engine was, "Holy eff! They're remaking The Chaos Engine!" That is not quite what's happening here -- this is a "restoration" of the classic top-down co-op title (also kn...

Capcom 30th anniversary encyclopedia coming October

Though I'm not too crazy about a lot of what Capcom has been doing lately -- boy, that's an understatement -- it nonetheless holds a special place in my heart as the first gaming company I truly admired. Games like Mega Man, DuckTales, Chip...

Microsoft might have a 1 vs. 100-style game for Xbox One

1 vs. 100 for Xbox 360 was a delight, plain and simple. I know I'm not the only one who would like to see it return or, at the very least, see Microsoft introduce more game shows that tap into the Xbox Live user base. Speaking to OXM, Micro...

Keep an eye on survival horror title The Forest

I may or may not have let out an audible "Holy sh*t!" while watching this trailer for The Forest, a first-person survival horror game looking for support on Steam Greenlight. Not because of a jump scare, mind you -- it happened when I real...

Ghost of a Tale has diamond crabs and frog spearmen!

Here is your reminder that Ghost of a Tale may very well be the most darkly adorable game in creation -- if it ever bloody gets the funding! In case you've forgotten, it's a game by a former Pixar animator, and it stars a mouse with a lute...

Link and Samus figmas to be restocked this winter

"Remember me?" It's our old friends: Max Factory's figma Link and figma Samus! These sexy poseable figurines were all the rage when they released last year, and they quickly sold out. If you missed that window, it was off to eBay and the ex...
