Vampyr's story trailer doesn't suck

Vampyr, Dontnod's upcoming action RPG, has avoided the spotlight for most of 2018. After a delay announcement last year, there hasn't been much information about the vampire-themed game, save for its new release date of June 5. Today, howev...

Review: The Council - Episode 1: The Mad Ones

As soon as I began playing The Council, I was immediately reminded of Agatha Christie: And Then There Were None on the Wii. I doubt others will have this moment in their head, but bear with me. The atmosphere felt incredibly similar as...

Vampyr finally sees the light of day on June 5

After three years of waiting, Vampyr is ready to awake from its slumber. The vampire-themed action RPG from the Life is Strange developer has a release date, barring any last-second setbacks. Tucked away inside the fourth install...

Review: The Surge

The first few minutes of The Surge are nothing if not evocative. It begins on a shuttle. Warren, the game's protagonist, sits idly as the car marches forward. He's a gruff, vaguely plain-looking man; the kind of guy whose worn and tired fea...

Review: Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom

These days, it's unusual for me to actively seek out role-playing games. The allure of embarking on a grand adventure is still strong as ever, and I love assembling and growing attached to a crew of characters, but the sheer time commitment...

Action-RPG The Surge really wants you to lop off limbs

Deck13 has garnered interest from Dark Souls fans, myself included, with The Surge. It's an action-RPG with a near-future-Earth twist that has you dodging, whittling away at your enemies, and striking with a finishing move to slice off spe...

Action-RPG Shiness locked in for April 18 on PC and consoles

Joining the absurd list of games coming out soon is Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom, a pleasant-looking action-RPG with a combat system not unlike what you might find in an arena fighting game. Previously penciled in for a 2016 release, Shin...

The Surge is doing its sci-fi action-RPG thing in May

"The Surge" isn't just something you'll find in a stuck-in-time pizza joint's soda fountain -- it's also an upcoming sci-fi action-RPG from Deck13. Has the studio learned some hard lessons from its 2014 release Lords of the Fallen? I'd sure...

Review: Styx: Shards of Darkness

The last time I played Dungeons and Dragons, I ended up in the shoes of a nasty gnome thief. A cocksure little prick who valued gold over the life expectancy of his friends, never took a shot that wasn't cheap, and would gleefully steal any...

The new Call of Cthulhu trailer is a descent into madness

I forgot that there was a new Call of Cthulhu game in the works. The Cyanide-developed title was announced early last year, but news of the Lovecraftian "RPG Investigation" game has been infrequent as of late. Luckily, publisher Focus Home ...

Keep an eye on action-RPG Shiness this December

Admittedly, Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom isn't my normal jam. It's doing the grand action-adventure RPG thing, which I can occasionally sink deep into, but it's rare these days that I feel like I can take on that sort of time commitment....

Here's what Dontnod's next game, Vampyr, looks like

Sure, you know what vampires look like (sometimes bats, sometimes men, always monsters), but do you know what Vampyr looks like? Don't feel bad if you don't. Since its reveal back in January 2015, not a lot has been shown. It has most...

Dang, I should've been following Shiness this whole time!

Do you know about Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom? I didn't know a thing about it -- not until a couple of weeks ago, at E3 2016, where I was given a rapid-fire rundown. Schedule changes and general last-day-of-the-expo busyness meant I had ...

Call of Cthulhu looks a little cheesy, but I'm into it

I can already tell it's going to be a long road to Call of Cthulhu's 2017 release, but I'm hopeful we'll get to see how Cyanide is handling its investigation-centric horror gameplay shortly here. Today's trailer mostly reiterates the basic...

Yeah, I could go for another good Call of Cthulhu game

Those first two character-less images of Cyanide's Call of Cthulhu weren't exactly illuminating, but today's screenshots offer more insight into the investigation-driven role-playing game. What are we looking into, exactly? As a private inv...
