I am pleased to report that in Dying Light: The Following, you can still dropkick a zombie off a cliff and into the sea. You also get to drive a car.
Firewatch is a very lonely video game that’s all about people.
Unravel, which stars a little red knitted character called Yarny, is unusually personal. It is an intimate game, tied to a certain place and time, and it very obviously means something to the people who made it.
The character selection page for Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is overwhelming. Which of the nearly 100 initially unlocked ninja should I choose?
A teenager is granted the ability to move freely between physical and digital worlds and befriend colorful monsters made of code, but that’s not important right now. We’ve got to solve the case of the broken air conditioner!
The saddest PS4 yet is a just-announced limited edition Uncharted 4 model that comes bundled with Naughty Dog’s next action game and a DualShock 4 controller. How glum is this offering? The new special color is “gray-blue.” Let’s all give Nathan Drake a hug, mkay?
You’re a discerning individual with refined tastes. Let’s say you want a really cool new video game to play. You think, “Hey, that Gravity Rush game is out on PS4. I’ll play that!” Wise decision, my friend.
It’s Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth day, at least for folks able to grab a PS4 or Vita copy. I’ve not gotten the chance yet, so in the meantime might I direct you to Richard Eisenbeis’ excellent impressions of the Japanese version. It’s the same thing, only with squiggles.
The first PlayStation 4 entry in Idea Factory’s girls as game consoles role-playing game is out in North America today. I’m betting it’ll take less than an hour of playing to decide if Megadimension Neptunia VII is for you, so here’s an hour of playing. Mind the NSFW screen at the end.
If you’d asked me back in 2012 to name a single Vita game that deserved a PS4 version, I would have said “Gravity Rush” with zero hesitation. Good news for me, then!
The real endgame of Diablo III starts in Adventure Mode, when our character finally finds one or two powerful items, and begins its journey to collect all the pieces required to clear everything on the highest difficulty levels in no time. The road to get there is bumpy, but our small guide might help a bit.
Because the only suits aren’t suits of armor.
The only technical testing I’ve done with the beta of Ubisoft’s upcoming game The Division is seeing whether I’ll like it. So far, it has passed that test.
If I were to sum up in two sentences my experience with delusion-filled murder mystery visual novel Chaos;Child, it’d be these: 1) If I’d known how incredibly long Chaos;Child was, I’d never have played it and 2) I’m so happy that I played Chaos;Child.
The Witness was in development for a long time. You might think that part of the reason things took so long was that some of the game’s core design ideas mutated along the way. But a video I shot in 2010 shows that Jonathan Blow’s focus was firmly locked into place even then.
Yakuza 6 isn’t out yet, but holy crap, it already looks incredible.
Flying Wild Hog’s Hard Reset, a rather good, PC-exclusive cyberpunk FPS from 2011, is coming to Xbox One and PS4 “soon.” Titled Hard Reset Redux, this new release, which’ll also be on PC, will come with “an upgraded visual engine and rebalanced gameplay, along with new enemies and weaponry.” Trailer’s above.
I’d rather not spoil anything. I’d rather you figure out everything in The Witness yourself. But if you need some general advice, here goes.
A small number of puzzles in The Witness will be difficult or impossible for some color-blind and hearing-impaired players to solve, though those puzzles are optional and the game can be completed without them.
