Torchlight Frontiers continues the ARPG series

When developer Runic Games closed its doors last year, I'm sure many fans weren't expecting to hear about another Torchlight in the future. Publisher Perfect World Entertainment didn't deny the existence of a sequel, but it seemed likely th...

Preview: The Messenger

Here's how to unlock all of Overcooked 2's secret levels

Very little about Overcooked 2 will leave you confused. Frustrated, sure. Overcooked's approach to cooperative play -- both players responsible for individual tasks in pursuit of a common goal -- can get so overwhelming for all but the...

Review: Overcooked 2

I'm so glad Overcooked found a sustainable, adoring audience in the almost two years since I first tried it on a whim. This simple yet hectic cooking game is one of the best co-op titles around. The basic concept is easy -- you assemble foo...

Puzzle Depot shows that pushing blocks can still be fun

In my youth, I used to play all kinds of crazy games on my uncle’s Mac. Most of these titles are lost to the annals of gaming history, but I do have a distinct memory of checking out Chip’s Challenge. I loved how quirky the grap...

Disney’s Tron is so ripe for video game adaptation, but there has been a curious lack of Tron inspired games. We’ve only seen a few official titles and basically nothing else I can think of. What happened to those neon colors an...

Giveaway: Monster Slayers (Steam)

This one has been a long time coming. I was originally supposed to run this giveaway over a year ago, and it slipped. I slipped. I am truly sorry to everyone involved. That said, this game is fucking awesome. I am truly lucky to be able off...

Bendy and the Ink Machine is more than just cheap scares

Horror games, for me, rarely stimulate any part of my being. Maybe I’m too used to the jump-scare tactics developers pull or perhaps my guard is raised too high, but it is rare for me to get shocked by a “scary” game. E...

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...
