Hearthstone's latest hero is a Murloc, but you'll need to do some legwork to get him

Man Murlocs are great. Their ridiculous rallying cry is equal parts cute and terrifying, and I'm ready and willing to accept any and all of their additions to the Warcraft series. That includes the new Hearthstone hero Morgl (a Shaman)...   read

PopCap aims for the moon, ends up with Bejeweled Stars

It's actually been 6 years since Bejeweled 3 and a cool 15 since the series' first iteration, even if I still can't reliably spell Bejeweled correctly. One of the reasons King is worth $6 billion is its match-3 Candy Crush, which hadn...   read

Namco's Dark Souls mobile spinoff looks like rubbish

Ah, so this is what Bandai Namco trademarked: an endless runner. Some of you were spot on. Slashy Souls is a mobile title made possible in part by GameStop -- a company supposedly "not attempting" to be a publisher -- that will release on A...   read

Next month's Rayman looks great, I'll probably never play it

People have said nothing but good things about Rayman Jungle Run and the third mobile Rayman game using the same assets (after Fiesta Run), Rayman Adventures, looks great. And while Jungle Run was limited as an endless runner (though, agai...   read

Indie dev's angry rant demonstrates the stress after being Kickstarted

Downwell is going to take over my life

I was on board with Downwell (PC, iOS, Android) as soon as I saw this gif. It's a game about descending a narrow well as a little guy with guns on his boots. Gun boots! Shooting slows your descent and, crucially, destroys enemies and blocks...   read

Dust: An Elysian Tail, a fantastic metroidvania, is coming to iOS

Dust: An Elysian Tail, released originally on XBLA in 2012, is one of my favorite metroidvanias in recent memory. The fact that it was developed by one guy, basically, is still insane to me, given how deep the game is mechanically. Now, it'...   read

Oh! A game based on The Walking Dead that focuses on tactical zombie survival? Sure, sounds great. Or maybe it doesn't technically sound great, as Norman Reedus really hams up the voice work in this trailer, going overboard with both the gr...   read

Well, I'm no longer afraid of Dropsy the clown

Dropsy is a well-intentioned, upbeat clown who happens to be utterly terrifying. He's misunderstood! Given my fear of grotesque clowns, I've kept my distance, but curiosity got the better of me here. I clicked the trailer. It's trippy -- in...   read
