Smash Bros. amiibo for Joker and Hero launch this October

Do you remember when amiibo were the biggest toys on the planet? That was a weird year. While they may not be as prominent as they once were, Nintendo is still churning them out. Earlier this year, it dropped the Dark Samus and Richter amiibo into stores. On October 2, two more Smash Bros. Ultimate fighters will join the amiibo lineup with the release...

Contest: Win Green Hell for Steam

In today's contest you can win a Steam copy of survival game Green Hell! There are like a billion survival/crafting games out there, right? They're like roguelikes, where basically everything coming out is following that formula. Hard to make it out there unless you've got a cool product, yo. Green Hell seems to have done really well for itself! Coming...

The Maestro Sigma skin is up for grabs right now in Overwatch

Sigma's Maestro skin makes him look like Overwatch's grumpy, fussy, tenured-as-hell professor, and folks, I'm into it. The outfit was created to drum up interest for the Overwatch: Cities & Countries album. This is another limited-time challenge – one of the very few in-game happenings that can still draw my eye toward Overwatch in 2020 – and it's...

Summer Games Done Quick kicks off with a Demon's Souls run

Demon's Souls has never been more prominently relevant than it is right now. Possibly the most infamous of the From Software Souls-type games, everyone has their eyes trained on that PS5 remake that was announced last month. It's being made by Bluepoint, who handled the excellent Shadow of the Colossus remake a few years ago. Maybe it's premeditated...

Supermassive and Harmonix are making Stadia-exclusive games

One of the many knocks against Stadia thus far is that it doesn't have any exclusives worth getting worked up over. That might be changing as Google has signed on two developers who have cult followings. Both Supermassive Games and Harmonix are creating new properties for Stadia. Supermassive is best-known for Until Dawn and The Dark Pictures Anthology;...

General Armquist is back for blood in Destroy All Humans!

THQ Nordic continues its almost Atlus-level trailer campaign for upcoming remake Destroy All Humans! Moving on from his recent rampages held in Washington D.C. and Area 42, intergalactic bastard Crypto has now infiltrated the militarised zone of Union Town.After gaining access to one of the army's biggest basses via his nifty cloaking and cloning devices,...

Review: Orcs Must Die 3

I haven't thought about Orcs Must Die in a while. It's weird too, since I spent so much time toiling away by myself with the first game and with my wife for the sequel. It's not a series that really pops into my mind all that often, but thankfully it's back (in non-free-to-play-form) with a real sequel: Orcs Must Die 3. Read...

Deadly Premonition 2 to get a post-launch rewrite because it 'might have hurt transgender people'

Folks who love Deadly Premonition the most will tell you that it's rife with technical issues, but those quirks only make it more lovable. Most fans were also relatively forgiving of the game's less-than-ideal social messaging, particularly around concepts of gender. Not to spoil it, but there is at least one gender non-conforming character in the game...

Bloodstained is getting a patch to fix issues the last update added in

Bloodstained is kind of like the Fallout 76 of the Metroidvania world: one patch enters, several new bugs leave. The Bloodstained team has acknowledged some recent bugs, most notably crashes after interacting with NPCs, crashes while playing Bloodless in boss rush mode and items negatively impacting achievements. There's no ETA on the fix right now,...

Here's a slick sizzle reel for a lot of Xbox Series X technical jargon

Remember back in March when Sony had Mark Cerny give a pre-recorded presentation on all the deep-dive technical capabilities of the PlayStation 5? It was extremely beneficial and useful and enlightening -- just not for the vast majority of the people who were watching. It was mostly lost on the video game-playing layman, as their only takeaway was "Okay,...
