I’m at a convention, and across the hall I see a guy in a blue robot suit. It’s Mega Man! I make my way over to get a picture, but as I approach I see that the color’s not quite right, the helmet is rough-cut cardboard and he’s wearing blue jeans. Awkward. Well, since I’m already here I might as well take Mighty No. 9…
Riding imaginary roller coasters and losing one’s self in immersive 360 degree environments is all well and good, but for me to truly appreciate virtual reality I needed an experience that spoke to my gaming tastes. Vive rhythm game Audioshield did the trick.
I didn’t expect to get so into StarBreak. It’s a free-to-play sidescrolling MMO—think Contra, but with, like, 30 other people swarming around you—where every death counts. If you die, loot and stats go out the window. Despite that, it’s weirdly relaxing to play.
If you ask me, The Witcher 3 is the finest RPG of our time. I don’t want to bid it farewell, but CD Projekt’s got quite an expansion lined up to help ease the grieving process.
Battleborn has eight story missions available to play either alone or with a group online. I have completed six. The Saboteur is the seventh, and I’m having a hell of a time with it. I am not alone.
This week IO Interactive released the second episode for their new Hitman game, full title Hitman 6: So You Want To Be A Hitman? After some costume changes and a few grisly murders, we decided to put our heads together to talk it out.
You can shut off your brain with some touchscreen games, tapping and swiping mindlessly until something else distracts you. Severed is not one of those games. Lose focus in this new Vita release and you’ll die real quick.
Between its flashy explosions and deep weapon customization, the PlayStation 4's latest co-op action role-playing game is transforming me into a ruthless alien killing machine. Want to watch?
Released this week for iOS and Android, Sailor Moon Drops is everything you every wanted in a Sailor Moon game, as long as everything you wanted was a Candy Crush Saga clone.
It may be a free-to-play mobile port of a browser-based game, but Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ crams a lot of what series fans love into a tiny space.
In the middle of my second play through of Ratchet & Clank I realized the re-imagined version had begun to infect my memories of the original, and I was okay with that.
Enter The Gungeon has been near the top of the Steam best-seller list for the past couple days, and I get why: it’s the type of roguelike shooter you can lose hundreds of hours to. Also the enemies are bullets. You get to kill bullets... with bullets.
For the past five days, I’ve spent nearly as much time in virtual reality as real reality. My calves ache and my neck is sore, but all in all I’ve had a pretty good time. I’ve been using the Vive, an ambitious new virtual reality system created by HTC and Valve.
Let’s get this out of the way upfront: Tyranny is not Pillars of Eternity 2. It’s a different animal, a decidedly more sinister one. But the gulf between them is more than skin-deep.
Where previous Disney Infinity expansions have worked within the rules and tools of the core game, the new Marvel Battlegrounds set breaks those rules, creating a Power Stone-esque competitive brawler that’s almost worthy of a standalone release.
Meet Brock “The Problem” Kucao, aka Spider “The Spider” Spider. He may not look like much with his neon wildman hairdo and 29 instances of the same tattoo, but he’s gonna win the crap out of the UFC featherweight title.
GameStop and Bandai Namco would really like you to preorder Dark Souls III. They made a mobile game about it called Slashy Souls. Want to play it? I wouldn’t bother.
If you want, you can tunnel all the way to the center of Portal Knights’ floating island world. There’s just one problem: it’s hollow.
