SteamWorld Dig 2 feels like a proper sequel

I couldn't be more thrilled that SteamWorld Dig is getting a follow-up. I loved its core loop of digging, collecting treasure, and heading up to the surface to buy upgrades that enabled you to delve deeper and more efficiently, opening up n...

Hue is a more colorful Limbo, and that's just fine

Hue is a two-dimensional puzzle platform game where the protagonist, the titular Hue, is tasked with collecting the different colors of a special ring to defeat the nefarious Dr. Grey. My first impression of Hue was that it looked...

 
 
I am Setsuna preview photo

I am Setsuna is a return to the classic JRPG formula

As a big fan of Chrono Trigger, and JRPGs in general, I was excited to try out Square Enix's upcoming I am Setsuna. Though the story and themes are completely different, comparisons between the two are immediately obvious when looking ...

YIIK is precisely the right amount of weird

Weirdness is a taut rope to walk -- too little and it distracts, too much and it's overpowering. It has to be just the right amount, mixed with enough sincerity to keep the whole affair from feeling twee or, even worse, smug. From what I pl...

Hitman GO: Definitive Edition is a killer time

Hit Mango is a delightful game on mobile devices that involves punching juicy stone fruits of the genus Mangifera. But we're here to talk about Hitman GO, one of Agent 47's brief dalliances with mobile platforms. Similar to last year's...

Dying just makes Super Rude Bear Resurrection easier

A corpse is typically not a welcoming sight, but in Super Rude Bear Resurrection it absolutely is. That decomposing body (which is yours from seconds ago, by the way) means that maybe you can skirt a particularly challenging section us...

 
 
Criminal Girls hands-on photo

I played Criminal Girls 2 and wasn't sexually aroused at all

While Japan is exoticized elsewhere as a land of weird sex stuff, Criminal Girls 2 doesn't feel that foreign, given that the original game got a western release. And it's probably the perviest game I came across (not literally, hence the ti...

 
 
Exist Archive preview photo

Exist Archive looks great, but it has a lot to prove

When Spike Chunsoft and tri-Ace announced Exist Archive: The Other Side of the Sky, I was supremely impressed with the visual style. As it turns out it looks even better in person, as I witnessed during my hands-on time with the TGS build. ...

Sword Art Online plays so much better when you can fly

I had mixed thoughts on Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment last year, but ultimately I came away happy. Funnily enough, as someone who absolutely hated the second arc of the anime, I actually found the follow-up, Lost Song, to...

 
 
Miracle Girls Festival photo

Miracle Girls Festival is fairly standard

Sega's Miracle Girls Festival borrows from all over the place. The rhythm game features girls from a number of different anime, and it employs the same engine as Project Diva titles. If you're familiar with all of that, you'll pro...

Crazy racer has you drive multiple cars at once

Game designers rarely go off-road when creating racing games and eschew lesser-traveled paths in favor of more established, familiar routes. Not Gordon Midwood, though; the one lone developer at indie studio Different Cloth is working on a ...

 
 
 
 
HANDS ON: Galak-Z  photo

How the hell did Galak-Z hide a Gundam for three years?

We've covered the "Spelunky by way of Macross" space shooting roguelike for a couple of years now and the follow-up from Skulls of the Shogun developer 17-bit is almost here, coming to PS4 August 4 and PC a few months down the line (regrett...

Persona 4 goes full Miku in Dancing All Night

It's been months since the Investigation Team cracked the case and life is getting back to normal. That is, until members of Rise Kujikawa's J-pop group suddenly go missing. And, surprise, surprise: The rescue mission brings the gang face t...

 
 
Severed photo

Severed is full of one-handed vengeance

There’s something serene about exploring a desolate place for the first time. Too often in games I find myself dropped into an environment, expected to pick up the pieces quickly to achieve a goal and left with little time to absorb.&...

 
 
 
 
 
Titan Souls preview photo

Titan Souls is my PAX Prime 2014 game of show

Confession time: I'm pretty out of the loop when it comes to the indie game scene. I love me some Nidhogg, Samurai Gunn, and Crawl, but it's not uncommon for me to have only heard about these games just before release or later. With that tr...
