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...

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...

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...

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...

You might not know this, but murderers love cross-brand synergy. That's why hot on the heels of some John Wick co-marketing, Payday 2 is getting a rash of neon-soaked DLC to celebrate the release of Hotline Miami 2. Remorseless spree kille...

Call this phone number for a cryptic Hotline Miami 2 message

The Hotline Miami Twitter account just posted this phone number: +1 (786) 519-3708 ext 10. I called it, like you do, and got a weird message, as expected. "We are 50 Blessings. Together we march ... into the future." Before I could determin...

So turns out that an annoying drawback of bagging a bunch of physical games is that you have to STAND UP and walk up to the console when you want to play something Then walk back to the Who does that? What a shocking revelation!
