When you get puzzles right in Level-5’s brain teaser series, you get a short animation of Professor Layton thinking as a little reward. But, if the game really wanted make you feel victorious, it’d give you these flashes of the Prof’s beefcake alter ego. You all remember him from this year’s PAX East, right?
This is Outlast, a first-person, combat-free horror game about investigating an asylum.
Side-scrolling indie action game Apotheon is looking a lot better since last we saw it. We saw it at PAX East in Boston this past weekend, where it appeared to be shaping up as promising mix of Metroid and... Mount & Blade?
This is State of Decay, a new Microsoft-published Xbox Live Arcade game that might be one of the most ambitious digital titles I've ever seen. It's an RPG, and also an RTS, and also a zombie survival game, and also a simulator, and if you're confused by all this, I know exactly how you feel. You can watch some video…

343 Industries announced during a PAX East panel yesterday that Halo 4 will soon get its own version of Halo: Reach's Forge World map (pictured above), a feature that has been missed since 4 launched. Called "Forge Island" and releasing for free on April 11, the map will provide a series of open spaces in which Halo 4…
Rock, Paper, Scissors is too simple for our modern times. That's why Margaret Robertson and her fellow game designers at Hide & Seek have created Rock, Paper, Scissors, Hadoken, Baby Sloth.
Gearbox has been pulling this stunt at PAX East this weekend, and today during their panel they showed this video of a whole bunch of people getting punked.
Gearbox showed off a little trailer that looks like Tiny Tina is playing something of a Dungeons and Dragons-esque board game, but Brick, Mordecai and Lilith aren't quite understanding her rules.
It's been quite some time since the internet gave Tim Schafer a whole bunch of money and unknowingly started the Kickstarter revolution, for better or worse.
Gearbox announced a new playable class at their PAX East panel today, but now you can see the psycho bandit in action, in-game.
