    Returning half a decade after its PlayStation 3 and Vita debut, Dragon’s Crown‘s new “Pro” edition for PlayStation 4 brings back everything that was great about the original, addresses some technical issues, opens cross-play online co-op between all three Sony platforms, remasters the soundtrack with […]

  • Review: Extinction

    Iron Galaxy has built a reliable reputation primarily as a contract studio porting games from larger developers to other platforms, but up to now the studio’s own titles have been smaller, indie-scale projects like Divekick and Wreckateer. Both of which were really fun. Extinction, the […]

  • Review: Minit

  • Review: Energy Invasion

    An Arkanoid clone with a dual-stick shooter twist, Energy Invasion pairs familiar ball-and-paddle gameplay with an alternative approach to busting bricks. The genre basics haven’t changed: You slide a paddle back and forth along the bottom of the screen to deflect an orb hurtling upward […]

    SteamWorld Dig 2 opens with players controlling Dorothy, a robot looking for her friend Rusty, the starring robot from the first SteamWorld Dig. Dorothy meets a parade of different robotic townsfolk who live in a dusty Western mining town troubled by a recent spike of earthquakes after […]

  • Review: Pinball FX3

    Zen Studios continues to set a high bar for video game pinball. I honestly didn’t think they could do any better than Pinball FX2/Zen Pinball 2, and even though Pinball FX3 feels more like an incremental step forward rather than an evolutionary leap into the […]

    It’s been another busy year for KontrolFreek. In addition to launching a brand new line of performance apparel for gamers, the company has continued to do what it does best–release a wide range of its signature analog thumbstick grips for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, […]
