Sonic Mania Plus releases this summer with two new characters

This afternoon at SXSW, Sega announced Sonic Mania Plus, an expanded version of the hit throwback platformer coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC this summer. Sonic Mania Plus features Mighty the Armadillo and Ray the...


Underrated as hell Runbow is coming to Switch soon

Runbow really did come out almost three years ago, huh? Time flies when you're a Wii U game, but the party platformer did eventually make it to PC almost a year later, followed by the New 3DS and Xbox One. As of today, PS4 and Switch v...


Review: Kirby Star Allies

I had to do a double-take once I realized we haven't had a mainstream console Kirby in seven years. Seven years! It almost seemed like Nintendo was ready to plop the little fluff ball onto portables permanently, and given that the Swit...


Cursed Castilla and Super Hydorah headed to Switch

We're going to start seeing beloved games built with GameMaker Studio resurfacing on Nintendo Switch. An upcoming export-to-Switch feature for developers will help enable new ports for titles like Undertale, and that's such wonderful news....


Rad Rodgers 1.5 patch is a major improvement

In the comments section of my rather scathing review of Rad Rodgers, one of the devs behind the game, a man named Fred, was wondering what happened. In a rather refreshing show of humility, he wasn't upset that I disliked the game, but ques...


Another World is being remade for Switch

Another World originally released more than 25 years ago, but it has been in the public consciousness a fair amount in recent years. A steady stream of anniversary re-releases and remakes have seen the iconic adventure game adapted for...


Indie darling Flinthook is coming to Switch next week

Tribute Games has had a nice little run for the past eight years or so. The original Ninja Senki (which was later remade in DX form years later) was fantastic, as was Wizorb, and Mercenary Kings directly after. Flinthook was another hit jus...


Super Lucky's Tale quietly got some pretty decent DLC today

Super Lucky's Tale, a decent puzzle platformer that was maybe a touch too simple and repetitive, got a nice little add-on today that's perfectly in-line with what this game is. Gilly Island is a new world made up of three levels and o...


Review: Rad Rodgers

First impressions count for a lot in gaming. Sometimes a bad launch can tarnish an otherwise solid game from ever recovering, but there are some rare instances where a title gets a second shot. Rad Rodgers happens to be one such game. I rev...


Rad Rodgers is now available on consoles

This news crept up on me, but Rad Rodgers is now available on Xbox One and PS4. Being released as a free update for previous owners on PC, the game now includes an additional five levels and some tuning to fix issues with game balance and p...


Owlboy is the skyward hero Nintendo fans deserve

At first it was exciting to see so many games come to the Switch eShop every week. Now it's getting ridiculous. Just this month, Celeste, Dandara, Space Dave, Old Man's Journey, Pac-Man CE 2 Plus, and Owlboy have all been competing for my t...


Review: Pinstripe

Some things are worth fighting for. Some things are worth walking through hell for. And whatever you hold dear is all the more precious when you've lost everything else. Ted has lost everything else. His wife is gone. He's a "disgraced mini...


The Switch is still scheduled to be skewered by 1001 Spikes

When people argue about game difficulty, most of the time what they're really arguing about is if said game was properly marketed to the same people who would end up enjoying it. Cuphead looks like a cute, simple 2D platformer, but it's act...


Review: Fe

What little we've known about Fe has seemed cleverly wrapped in enigma, like this forest is hiding mysteries that are just begging to be solved. That's half true. There's something to uncover at nearly every turn in Fe but nothing...
