GOG.com considers game streaming 'another layer of DRM'

In an interview with GamesIndustry.biz at E3 this year, Lukasz Kukawski (GOG.com's head of global communication) gave the company's stance on what it feels streaming services are to gamers. "We don't see it as a thing that will take over ga...

Tunic is basically a recreation of classic Zelda

Microsoft had a stellar E3 presentation this year, but there wasn’t too much to keep me interested. I’m not really into most of the Xbox-exclusive franchises and the vague promise of “things to come” didn’t hol...

Cygames has conquered mobile: Now it's coming for consoles

Cygames had a rather unassuming booth at this year's E3. Actually, "booth" would be the wrong word to describe it. It was a cubicle, hidden in plain sight with the other cubicles that filled the concourse of the Los Angeles Convention Cente...

Phantom Doctrine lets you run a rogue intelligence agency

"We weren't really satisfied with Hard West's depth; it always felt rushed. So this time around, we were constantly afraid of making a game that felt too shallow. Sometimes, I think we overdid it." Kacper Szymczak finishes his statement wit...

Mutant Year Zero kicked my ass at E3

“This game will not go easy on you.” That was my warning moments before starting up the E3 demo for Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden. When Brett booked this appointment for me, my mind read it as Mutant Football League so, g...

Forget Rico Rodriguez, a tornado is Just Cause 4's real star

Avalanche Studios' Just Cause games are chaos incarnate. The open-world action series packs more explosions and high-speed stunts in a single hour than most titles manage during their entire runtime. Rico Rodriguez always felt more like a h...

Project 1v1 is a 'gladiatorial' shooter from Gearbox Software

A few minutes before I played my first match of Gearbox Software's Project 1v1, I was informed that Randy Pitchford refers to the game as "gladiatorial." Pitchford's ability to describe his studio's games with over-complicated, hyperbolic m...

Let me tell you about this one kitchen in Overcooked 2

Overcooked has been nothing short of a rousing success on Nintendo Switch. It had a rough launch, but with updates and improvements, it’s become a stand-out seller on the system, with Nintendo going so far as to mention the title by n...

The E3 2018 Dumbstructoid Awards

Right now, I'm overcome with an immense feeling of joy. I'm happy, content even, because after seven, long days of running around the crowded hallways of the Los Angeles Convention Center and sleeping in an apartment so cold Ice Man would a...

The Surge 2's combat is all about violent self-expression

Things aren't going well in The Surge 2's dystopian landscape. Jericho City is a far cry from the dimly-lit industrial buildings that dominated so much of The Surge's runtime, but it's hardly a happy place. A mysterious storm lingers overhe...

Resident Evil 2 nearly made me s#!t my pants

Capcom has a tight set-up in the South Hall of E3. The entrance to its demo for the Resident Evil 2 remake is a miniature recreation of the Raccoon City police station, redesigned as a short haunted house to provide a brief bit of...

Mega Man 11 proves Capcom still has a knack for the series

Unlike most of the other games I'll play at E3, a single level of Mega Man 11 is actually enough to give a comprehensive look at the quality of the final product. There are two available for my session -- Block Man and Fuse Man -- and ...

Starlink: Battle for Atlas is Star Fox evolved

When Starlink: Battle for Atlas was announced at E3 2017, I immediately wrote it off. Here was a new toys-to-life product in a time when other franchises in that niche were starting to die off. In 2017 it seemed like an antiquated conc...

Dragon Quest XI seems well worth the wait

E3 is a rather lousy place to play Dragon Quest XI for the first time. Sessions are limited to just 15 minutes, and with two small maps to explore with a bevy of points of interest, a single session isn't even a proper amount of t...

PUBG is not an asset flip according to the developer

For a while now, there have been claims from fans that the maps in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds are basically asset flips. To quickly get the uninformed up to speed, asset flips are when a developer buys things like character models or bui...

Metro: Exodus is big, challenging, and beautiful

It's easy to assume the heart of the Metro series lies in the tunnels that snake below Russia's irradiated surface. They're the capillaries through which both Metro 2033 and Last Light's story unfolded, claustrophobic veins occupied by...

Killer Queen Black is a buzzworthy party game

I like to jot down a few notes before I write about a game. It helps me get my mind in the right place. After spending some hands-on time with Killer Queen Black, I immediately took out my notebook and started writing.  It wasn't until...

Persona 5 beaten after 111 hours! What a great, if bloated The first palace and the time management sucked, the plot cheated for a twist, the music was ok, its style is amazeballs, fusion is finally good and Makoto was best Onto the next JRPG!
