Chadwick Boseman thought he already had a sense of how significant the Black Panther is to the fans who love him. But it wasn’t until Saturday afternoon, while he was on stage at the Marvel Studios panel at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, that he got hit with the full weight of the love and enthusiasm surrounding…
Brigador took five years to create. It’s a mech game with a great retro-chic look, a standout soundtrack, and fully desctructible everything. The developers jokingly call it a “Kool-Aid Man simulator.” On Steam, it has a 94 percent positive rating. Despite all that, it flopped.
Between directing Bloodborne and co-directing Dark Souls 3, From Software president Hidetaka Miyazaki has kept busy. As he works on Dark Souls 3's downloadable content, Miyazaki must consider the future of From Software and what’s after Souls. Here’s what the designer had to say.
What would the soundtrack of a brutally violent, post-apocalyptic Japan sound like? In Suda51’s latest, Let It Die, it’d be a rock playlist of Japanese Indie bands hand-picked by Silent Hill music legend Akira Yamaoka. But for these current times, Yamaoka would recommend listening to Dizzy Mizz Lizzy.
Steam doesn’t have many gay sex games. Plenty of anime boob games, sure, but if you’re looking for hot dudes getting it on, it’s slim pickings. Robert Yang is trying to change that.
It’s been nearly 10 years since development started on The Last Guardian, designer Fumito Ueda’s long-anticipated follow-up to Ico and Shadow of the Colossus. I caught up with Ueda at E3 to talk about his lengthy journey.
Hardcore Henry is the world’s first fully first-person action movie, in which the audience sees from the point of view of the main character. That’s a simple idea, but making it happen was insanely complicated—and dangerous. People were, at times, flirting with death. But for director Ilya Naishuller and star Sharlto…
There’s a battle-ready mecha gracing the cover of Peter Tieryas’ latest novel. Despite this, United States of Japan is probably not quite what you imagine it to be.
When Darkest Dungeon first launched on Steam Early Access in February 2015, it was almost universally beloved. A unique, polished, fleshed-out experience on Early Access? It was practically unheard of. So it was all happily ever after from there, right? Hardly.
Stardew Valley is the humble farming game that’s taken Steam by storm. People are in love with it to the point that they’re buying legit copies of the game for pirates. They’re also modding the crap out of it. All because one guy decided the PC needed its own grown-up version of Harvest Moon. Yes, one guy.
A couple weeks ago, I wrote about Crashlands, a mash-up of Diablo, Pokemon, and Don’t Starve lobbed at Steam’s collective face with unfettered glee. It’s ambitious, funny, and fun. Turns out, it was conceived when its creator found out he had cancer.
Celebrating Pokémon’s 20th anniversary, Game Freak’s Junichi Masuda looks back on the early days of developing Red and Green. It sounds like a tough time!
Narcissa Wright used to be the fastest Zelda: Ocarina of Time player. Her best run was nearly perfect, the stuff of, well, legends. Cut to now: Wright has developed hand problems and can’t speedrun. She’s also decided to undergo hormone replacement therapy. Her life is fraught with change, and some of her viewers…
Star Wars is something that’s so special to so many people, that the mere idea of actually creating something new and fresh in that universe would be daunting. And yet, that’s what J.J. Abrams did with The Force Awakens.
Lauren “Pansy” Scott is a professional eSports commentator with the ESL. Once upon a time, she was a pro gamer before you could really make a living off that sort of thing. Now she makes Counter-Strike and other games understandable for the masses. Despite what you might think, it’s not an easy job.
One of the most exciting announcements during Microsoft’s E3 press conference was not how Halo 5 would reshape the FPS genre, nor how Forza 6 would bring 500+ cars to drool over. And it definitely was not the new $150 Xbox Elite Controller. No other title took my breath away more than the indie game Cuphead.
Last week in Los Angeles, I had the opportunity to catch up with Kenichiro Takaki, known in Japan as the “Bakunyuu Producer.” We talked about what he’s been up to, what games he plays, where he draws the line and GTA5, among other things.
Oculus has a incredible product: a headset that can make you feel like you’re in another world. With its upcoming motion controllers, Oculus Touch, you can even reach out and grab virtual objects. But a competing headset, the HTC Vive, will let you walk around in VR too—and it’ll ship this year, before Oculus can make…
During E3, we got a chance to go hands on with a near-final build of Mighty No. 9. After our time with the game, we had some questions. Thankfully Nick Yu, producer of Mighty No. 9, was on hand to answer them.
