PlayStation Vita still exists in The Last of Us Part II

Naughty Dog just finished up giving us an extended look at The Last of Us Part II, and there wasn't a major takeaway. Unlike the Ghost of Tsushima State of Play a few weeks ago, The Last of Us is a fairly known quantity. No one h...

Hotline Miami Collection comes sleazin' onto Xbox One

Developer Dennaton Games, alongside publisher Devolver Digital, has released its sickening, sun-splashed Hotline Miami Collection on the Xbox One platform, bringing all of its nihilistic violence and hazy, lurid atmosphere to the Microsoft ...

Review: Bloodroots

Okay, if I grab the hammer from that stump I can use it to take out two of those mooks guarding the shish kebab, then dash past the crush traps. The guy at the end of the trap line is wearing a pool floatie as armor, so I'll have to use a r...

Review: I Hate Running Backwards

Serious Sam might not be a household name, but that hasn’t stopped the guy from appearing in a crazy amount of games. Developer Croteam and publisher Devolver Digital have always had a fondness for the character and that has extended ...

Video game mashups to brighten up your day

I am fond of a video game mashup or two, so I was stoked when I heard 2 Mello (the composer for 2064: Read Only Memories) was releasing a Streets of Rage mashup album this week. When it came out on Tuesday, I downloaded it right away for li...

Review: Redeemer

Revenge plots are overused in our media. I’m sure off the top of your head, you could come up with about 15-20 films that have a character going on a vengeance streak for the wrongs done against them. You could probably also name a ha...

Review: Mr. Shifty

Hotline Miami was an instant hit upon its release in 2012. Mixing a unique style with gratuitous violence and a self-reflective story, the game asked players to question why they were so willing to murder in video games all the time. Was it...

Hotline Miami 2's level editor is ready at last

The level editor for Hotline Miami 2 is no longer in beta, and to celebrate, I think a Carpenter Brut playlist is in order. If it seems like this rollout has taken its sweet time, I agree -- the game is over a year old and, initially, I tho...

 
 
Ruiner preview photo

Ruiner is a pretty slick cyberpunk shooter

There's a slew of great concepts this year at PAX East and within Devolver Digital's booth we have Ruiner, a cyberpunk action-packed shooter. It stood out to me specifically as some kind of Blade Runner and Drive movie crossover with a Hotl...

At long last, Dennaton has finally released an early beta of the mod tools for Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number. It’s only available for Window, but you’re now able to make your own custom maps. A tutorial released by Dennaton show...

This Hotline Miami sale supports the musicians

The music for Hotline Miami has stuck with me like few other video game soundtracks. Carpenter Brut, M|O|O|N, Perturbator, and Magic Sword all in one brutal, high-octane place. It's exceptional. While the games have been discounted numerous...

Hotline Miami 2 level editor beta hitting next month

It's been a little while since we last heard about the “almost ready” level editor for Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number. But good things come to masked murderers who lie in wait and our patience has finally been rewarded. Developer...

We'll soon be able to make tiny levels in Hotline Miami 2

One of the common complaints for Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number is its large levels. Were they too large? I didn't mind them. Sure, it felt bad to die from the last guy on the floor after pulling off a miraculous string of executions, but th...

Download this free track off the Hotline Miami 2 OST

I've stopped playing Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, but the soundtrack hasn't gone anywhere -- well, not all of it. I said I'd play the songs on repeat until I grew sick of them and, yep, that has mostly happened. But these things are cycli...

This Japanese Hotline Miami art is sick as hell

Danganronpa maker Spike Chunsoft is publishing Hotline Miami: Collected Edition, a localized bundle of the original gorefest and its thumping sequel Wrong Number, in Japan this year. Ahead of its June 25 release for PS4 and PS Vita, here's ...

Get both Hotline Miami games in a brutal physical box set

Rejoice Hotline Miami fans who still like physical boxed releases, there's a Hotline Miami and Hotline Miami 2 physical collectors edition in the works. The $60 (£40) box set, due to ship out in August 2015, comes with DVD and Steam c...

 
 
Immoral games photo

Lots of games are morally bankrupt, we get it

With Hotline Miami 2 recently released, I realized I am really, really tired of games that belong in its genre. When I say "genre," I refer not to "action games" or "indie games" or even "violent games," but a subtler, more hypocritical cla...

I guess I dont need to buy the first two Arkham games for Xbox One since I already own them for 360, but if I want to play them again do I really want to go all the way down to storage and dig them out when I can buy them on sale on the Xbox store?
