Codemasters' Onrush looks good as hell and it's coming this summer

I spend too much time thinking about May 2010 and how both Split/Second and Blur released within a week of each other. Remember how crazy that was? These two over-the-top action racers -- not an over-saturated market -- squaring off just seven days apart. Show More Summary

Battlefield 1's Apocalypse expansion closes out the Premium Pass today

The two-week head start on Apocalypse begins today for Battlefield 1 Premium Pass holders. This final expansion includes new maps (Passchendaele, Caporetto, and River Somme), the Air Assault game mode (along with the maps Razor's Edge...Show More Summary

Duck Game is still coming to Nintendo Switch

The slapstick humor of Duck Game always puts a smile on my face and I'm absolutely down to play it again on Nintendo Switch. While the Switch port was ever-so-briefly announced in an indie showcase video a year ago (just the logo was...Show More Summary

PS4 players can now go through SOMA in Safe Mode

Last year, Frictional Games thoughtfully added a Safe Mode to its underwater sci-fi horror game SOMA on PC and Xbox One. The idea was to let players take in the story (which is the highlight of the whole experience, by far) without worrying...Show More Summary

PUBG's next map will arrive in the first half of 2018

There's been some concern about where exactly PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is headed this year. The game is obviously still selling, and people are still playing it en masse, but where's the roadmap? Writing on Steam, the development...Show More Summary

Burnout Paradise Remastered is official, still lacks a good crash mode

EA's worst kept secret of 2018, Burnout Paradise Remastered, is now officially coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC this year. Owners of the PS4 Pro or Xbox One X can get 4K playback at 60 FPS. Console gamers will be able to grab the remaster on March 16 for $39.99 while PC gamers will have to wait (and put up with Origin). Show More Summary

Owlboy is the skyward hero Nintendo fans deserve

At first it was exciting to see so many games come to the Switch eShop every week. Now it's getting ridiculous. Just this month, Celeste, Dandara, Space Dave, Old Man's Journey, Pac-Man CE 2 Plus, and Owlboy have all been competing for my time, and choosing one over the other at any given moment hasn't been easy.

March's Games with Gold are an odd selection

I tend to be a bit harsh on the free game selections from both Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network, but March isn't looking too hot. Well, it's actually looking Superhot, because that title is being included and is the only thing I'd recommend. Show More Summary

Doom Switch update adds motion controls

I'm still a bit bothered that Bethesda waited until the zero hour to give out review copies for Doom -- they should have been shouting about how great it was from the rooftops a week in advance. Over time though I think people got the...Show More Summary

Monster Hunter: World peddles 650,000 digital copies in three days in Japan

In an era where so many publishers are mum on digital sales, it's refreshing to actually get hard data every once in a while. Now we can start to piece together just how successful Monster Hunter: World was, alongside of the shipment/digital...Show More Summary

Review in Progress: Metal Gear Survive

For the first time in the life of the series, the future of Metal Gear is uncertain. Now I mean that in the direst sense, because depending on who you ask Kojima either planned out the entire storyline or made it up as he went along....Show More Summary

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT goes for the nostalgia tendon with Tactic's Orbonne Monastery arena

As I've said in the past, Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is a silly brawler that more often than not appeals to people who are more into an all-stars mashup than a serious fighting game, and this upcoming bit of free DLC is no exception. A...Show More Summary

Another Sonic racing game rumor surfaces from another toy maker

This is the second time in so many days that there's been word of a potential Sonic racing follow-up from developer Sumo Digital, and the rumor-fire is being stoked once again. This time it comes from Diamond Select Toys, who was interviewed at the New York Toy Fair by channel Pixel Dan. Show More Summary

Cities: Skylines is landing mods this week on Xbox One

Mods appear so infrequently in console games that whenever they do pop up, I feel like a quick little shout-out of encouragement is in order. This time, we're talking Cities: Skylines -- the Xbox One version is getting its first batch of player-made creations on February 20. Show More Summary

Dark Horse's Mario encyclopedia is coming West in October

After finding success with the Legend of Zelda series, Dark Horse decided to take a crack at the equally iconic Super Mario Bros. series in 2015 with the Super Mario Bros. Encyclopedia. This previously Japanese exclusive book chronicled...Show More Summary

Review: Pinstripe

Some things are worth fighting for. Some things are worth walking through hell for. And whatever you hold dear is all the more precious when you've lost everything else. Ted has lost everything else. His wife is gone. He's a "disgraced minister" which means the clergy doesn't want him anymore. Show More Summary

Biomutant looks weird as hell and I'm really into it

"What even is this game?" That was my initial reaction to hearing about Biomutant, an open-world action-RPG from Experiment 101 and THQ Nordic. Months later, I'm still trying to process it. In Biomutant, you can customize your protagonist with mutations and mechanical body parts, and doing so impacts how the game handles and where you can go. Show More Summary

The Switch port of Rime is in a much better place now

As promised, Grey Box has revisited the less-than-stellar Nintendo Switch version of Rime. Today's update offers significant improvements for last year's puzzle-adventure title, from crisper visuals and better textures to a larger draw...Show More Summary

Black Panther destroys box office expectations, breaks records

Black Panther is getting rightful praise for a ton of reasons based around its cultural importance and quality, but to the studios only one thing matters, and that is money. So it's good to know we can add on top of that praise a box office that broke nearly every February release record on the books. Show More Summary
