There was but a whisper of Robinson: The Journey back in June, and now developer Crytek has shown off a bit more of it during the virtual reality portion of Sony's Paris Games Week press conference. The trailer features not only the boy pro...   read

Housemarque announces ruby shooter Matterfall

Housemarque is probably best known for its trippy 2D shooters Super Stardust or Resogun, but the studio is going in a different direction for its latest game Matterfall, announced today at Sony's press conference during Paris Game...   read

Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 2 stealth launches today

[Update: While we were initially told by a Telltale staff member that the EU release of episode two was being held until Friday, it now appears the digital EU release date is in fact today.] In an unexpected surprise move, Minecraft: S...   read

Void and Meddler is a grimy cyberpunk point-and-click

Cyberpunk is often a particularly nasty genre. It's an evolution of noir, which is why you see conventions of noir regularly appear in cyberpunk stories. The morally ambiguous main character, the even more ambiguous romantic interest, ...   read

Assassin's Creed Syndicate finally uses 'London Calling' in a trailer

"London Calling" is a very good song by The Clash, a very good punk band. Through its staccato'd guitars and less-than-frantic pace, it tells of social and political concern in England's capital. There's a feel-good veneer covering the lyr...   read

Scribblenauts developer hopes for $500,000 on Fig for its next game

When I hear "5th Cell," my mind goes to the good times I spent with 2008's action-tower defense Lock's Quest or 2009's creative puzzle platformer Scribblenauts. Those were cute, inventive 2D games. I definitely don't think of Hybrid, whose ...   read

Life is Strange's final trailer is a dream nightmare

On the eve of the release of Life is Strange's final installment, Max is frozen on the precipice of catastrophe. Truthfully, she has been since the cliffhanger ending to episode four way back in July. Thus far, Life is Strange has bee...   read

The first full Ratchet and Clank trailer is not great

The first full trailer for the Ratchet and Clank movie has been released, and it's ridiculously generic. I get the "In a world..." joke, and I get the overwrought narrator, but this is the most kids movie-ass trailer I've seen in years. The...   read

Prey for the Gods looks like a new Shadow of the Colossus

At first, Prey for the Gods looks very similar to a crafting-heavy survival game a la Rust filtered through some Never Alone. But that's only the first part of the trailer. Prey for the Gods looks beautifully nihilistic,...   read

Feast your eyes on sci-fi platformer-RPG Wanderer

When it comes to pixel art, there is good stuff and there is bad stuff. Recently launched on Kickstarter, Wanderer falls easily into the former category. I just love the look of the pixelated characters on the more painterly backgrounds. On...   read

Nintendo labels new Fatal Frame trailer 'extremely spoopy'

Decapitation won't stop the foes in Witcher 3: Hearts of Stone

Geralt of Rivia has found himself opposite all kinds of opponents. Ghouls and beasts and insects and vampires -- the list goes on and on. So, when he's facing boring ol' humans, well, that's about as mundane as his life gets. But, Witcher ...   read

Skullgirls dev's metroidvania RPG Indivisible is looking pretty dang good

Mushroom 11 spreads its spores on October 15

Back when I first played Mushroom 11, more than a ago at PAX East 2014, it was a cool concept. Judging by the launch trailer below (and Brett's preview from earlier this year), Untame has really expanded on that concept, working it into a f...   read

Rise of the Tomb Raider trailer shows off hot grappling hook action

Lara Croft probably has some sort of death wish. Mountain climbing can be good exercise and recreation, but I don't think anybody in her right mind would swing from a grappling hook, launch 30 feet, then catch on a vertical rock face with a...   read
