Adult Swim is helping bring back ToeJam & Earl

You were aware that a new ToeJam & Earl game is currently in production, right? If not, I'm happy to be the bearer of good news. Series co-creator Greg Johnson took to Kickstarter last year to crowdfund ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove,...Show More Summary

This Owlboy trailer shows that good things take time

I don't know that I'm capable of writing about Owlboy without talking about the passage of time, so I'm not even going to fight it. This is a game I've been looking forward to for years and years, to the point where there's almost a sense of nostalgia surrounding it. Show More Summary

Two years after its announcement, Awesomenauts is coming to the Xbox One next month

Announced all the way back in mid-2014, Awesomenauts Assemble! (the console follow-up to the ill-fated original release that featured a nasty case of publishing problems) is coming to the Xbox One on September 7. As part of the celebration,...Show More Summary

Civilization VI Anniversary Edition announced

Fans of Civilization will be pleased to know that a collector's edition for the upcoming Civilization VI was announced today. The package comes with an art book, commemorative coins, some pre-order DLC and the bonus content from the digital deluxe edition.

What are some of the best console revisions of all-time?

Have you heard tell of this new PlayStation 4? It's slimmer and, uh, not as good looking. That's all according to the many many leaks that have hit the Internet this week. It won't be officially announced until September 7 -- two weeks from now. Sony would probably prefer if we didn't talk about the PS4 Slim but we're going to anyway. Show More Summary

Here are your September '16 Games with Gold, headlined by Mirror's Edge

I really love how PlayStation Plus forced Microsoft's hand in giving out benefits with Xbox Live Gold. For a long time, gamers were basically paying for the privilege of using an Xbox console with nothing to show for it (except an empty wallet). Games with Gold continues its hot streak with a bunch of really awesome titles next month. Show More Summary

Sakurai had a ton of trouble gathering different Pokemon voices for Smash Bros.

Pokemon is such a massive property now, there are a ton of hoops to jump through. For one you have Nintendo and Game Freak, who both are part owners in The Pokemon Company entity. Then there's the localization problems given the worldwide...Show More Summary

Bethesda shows off last Fallout 4 DLC ahead of its release

Bethesda streamed roughly an hour of the new Nuka-World DLC yesterday, the last planned add-on for Fallout 4, which you can watch below. It's recommended that you approach the DLC when you're "at least" level 30. At the start of the video, featuring commentary from two Bethesda employees, part of my problem with Fallout 4 was put front and center. Show More Summary

Battlefield 1 is getting a customary FPS Season Pass

EA has announced the season pass for Battlefield 1, and it looks like it's going to run you $50 for four expansions. The first of which is due in March 2017 (five months after the game is released, so maybe wait before buying it?), titled...Show More Summary

Review: Obduction

Myst was such a formative experience in the '90s -- a harbinger of a new plane of thinking in storytelling, pushing the boundaries of technical advancement and narrative-driven gaming. It defined a genre and set the stage for adventure...Show More Summary

Pokemon Go's new IV-like appraisal update is pretty basic

Yesterday's update description for Pokemon Go was light, but most of us veteran Pokemon players kind of scratched our heads and said...did Niantic just add an IV mechanic to Go? Well, no. Initially excited to try out the new "appraisal" function, I was sorely disappointed from the get-go. Show More Summary

These Pokemon hamburgers are to 'dye' for

Australian burger pop-up Down-n-Out (In-n-Out down under) is selling a two-week run of Pokemon-inspired hamburgers. Squirtle got the shaft as the crew went with two starters, Bulbasaur and Charmander, as well as the ubiquitous Pikachu. The grass starter apparently tastes a lot like a McDonald's Bic Mac with a piece of broccoli drilled thru its skull. Show More Summary

Get hard, Sega Hard, this October

Inside releases on PS4 today, and you should totally play it

It's not even September, but there has been a fair amount of preliminary talk about game of the year. Everyone has their own opinion. Chris keeps championing Overwatch, I won't shut up about The Witness, Zack really loves Devil Daggers, etc. Show More Summary
