ReCore, a game that shipped incomplete, is going to get a 'Definitive Edition'

It's a well-tread industry practice for publishers to eventually bundle a game with all of its add-ons in a "Definitive Edition" that supposedly represents the most complete way to experience it. Really, it's a second chance at retail months after the original launch. Show More Summary

Conquer the known world with Alexander the Great in Civilization VI

The trickle feed of new civilizations continues with Alexander the Great being the next new ruler to be added to Civilization VI. Along with Macedonia getting representation will be Persia with Cyrus the Great. Together, they will make a great combo. Alone, they will be great rivals. Greatness awaits is the point I'm making (suck it, Sony!). Read more...

The hero Australia deserves: senator commands Canberra to 'leave gamers alone'

Someone is finally speaking some sense. Following the Australian Classification Board's banning of Outlast II, Senator David Leyonhjelm blasted the Australian Senate regarding video game censorship. Leyonhjelm argues the laws related...Show More Summary

New Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology images question its 'remake' title

New information and screenshots of Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology are here thanks to Famitsu. On top of the new "Sub-History," Atlus will add voice acting, a new character named Nemesia, and "system additions." Gameplay screenshots...Show More Summary

Early on, the Bakers had a dog in Resident Evil 7

There could've been a Baker family pooch in Resident Evil 7! That's my main takeaway from this first making-of video from Capcom, but it's far from the only production insight featured. Part of me is sad that idea didn't make the cut, but I'm also thankful I didn't have to deal with a dog getting all up in my face at the dinner table. Show More Summary

There's a week-long Water Festival event in Pokemon Go

Swooping back into Pokémon Go for special limited-time events seems like the best approach for me, and this new one, a worldwide Water Festival, is of particular note. It's a way to more easily spot -- and, Pokégod willing, actuallyShow More Summary

Overwatch's long haul approach is fantastic: Director hints at map editor

As they've proven over the course of the past few decades on PC, Blizzard supports their games long term -- whether it's by way of more content, or just compatibility patches. I fully expect Overwatch to be around for a long time, and...Show More Summary

Review: Macbat 64

I've never pitched a game to someone with a prototype, but I'd imagine Macbat 64 isn't far off from what publishers would have seen when looking at prototypes for Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong 64. That is to say, bite-sized levels that get the point across of what the final product would be like. Show More Summary

New Senran Kagura game teased in Peach Beach Splash

Similar to how Kingdom Hearts games always show a teaser regarding the next game in post-credits scene (sometimes requiring certain conditions be met), the end of Senran Kagura Peach Beach Splash also teases the seventh game in the franchise. Show More Summary

This fight between a Guardian and a Stone Talus is one of the best Zelda: Breath of the Wild videos yet

One of the reasons I love Breath of the Wild so much is because of how open it truly is. No I don't mean in a cookie cutter "open world" kind of way, but a truly freeing experience where you can get lost in exploration for hours on end...Show More Summary

Monster Hunter XX dominates Japan, spikes 3DS sales

As if the Nintendo 3DS needed any help selling in Japan, the release of Monster Hunter XX (expansion of Monster Hunter Generations) has raised total 3DS sales (2DS, New 3DS, New 3DS XL) by 179%. The surge momentarily closed the gap with the Switch, which remains the top selling console. Show More Summary

Double Fine-published GNOG is tactile, satisfying, indie as hell

When I first saw GNOG at IndieCade a few years back, I wasn't quite sure what to make of it. The game reminded me of those Fidget Cubes people seem to like so much -- more of an oddity to poke at than a traditional "game." And that's fine; games have diversified to the point where the definition of "video game" is maybe as broad as it'll ever get. Show More Summary

New US and UK travel ban impacts Switch on some international flights

The UK and the US have banded together for a new travel ban that impacts devices "larger than a smartphone," a category that the Switch is decidedly in. Don't worry too much unless you go to Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Tunisia, Egypt, or...Show More Summary

New pictures reveal Nintendo's Joy-Con fix: A piece of foam?

Although I still haven't experienced any left Joy-Con issues since my Switch review unit pre-launch, many others have. A lot of folks have narrowed it down to defective units and "incompatible rooms," which is a not-great experienceShow More Summary

Rakuten, the Japan-owned online retailer who bought out Buy.com years ago, is running a pretty solid coupon code today thanks to a MasterCard promotion. You can now take twenty bucks of a PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold one-year membership, or choose from $25 off Nioh. Show More Summary

Toukiden 2 arrives on PC with release week deal of 23% off

Head over to Steam right now and find today's release of action RPG Toukiden 2 with a 10% promotional discount. Its a typical release-week discount for the Koei Tecmo PC port, but you can pick up the game much cheaper on PC at GMG. At...Show More Summary

Killing Floor 2 adds a new mode, maps, and weapons

At the risk of reminding Zack that we played Killing Floor 2 together once, had a good time, then proceeded to never cooperatively fend off the Zed hordes again, I'd like to point out that there's a free new Descent Content Pack outShow More Summary

You can now blast DAYTONNNNNAAA on your Xbox One

While we may not be getting an extreme amount of backward compatible titles on Xbox One today, at least Daytona USA is finally available on the system. The classic racing game was truly a technical marvel back in 1993 and remains a highly enjoyable game thanks to its incredible frame rate (eat your heart out, Breath of the Wild). Show More Summary

Bloodstained kills its Wii U version, jumps over to Switch

In yet another death spasm for Nintendo's second-newest console, the Wii U version of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has been cancelled. Instead, developer Inti Creates is pivoting to a version for the Nintendo Switch. No other platforms have been affected. The news was revealed today as an update on Bloodstained's Kickstarter page.

Horizon Zero Dawn adds the option to buy in bulk

Listen, I know it's not the sexiest thing, but it's still weirdly attractive. Horizon Zero Dawn now has the ability to buy stuff in bulk and it has some people very excited. This is why places like Costco continue to thrive (although...Show More Summary
