Sonic Forces blasts off with a new gameplay mode and we played it

Sonic Forces
Sonic Mania is barely out the door and we've already had a chance to play the next big game in the series - Sonic Forces. We sprinted over to Sega's booth at Gamescom 2017, and played the latest demo of the game behind closed doors. Forces, developed by the same team that worked on the very successful Sonic Colors and...

Moons of Madness is about your inner demons, not tentacle monsters

Moons of Madness astronaut
When I was a kid, I never wanted to be an astronaut. I loved space, I loved learning about the different planets, and I loved imagining what kind of life forms can evolve on each one of them. But I never wanted to go up there. Space may be fascinating, but it’s also utterly terrifying. Maybe that's why I absolutely...

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle totally works as a strategy game

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle walking
When the first rumors and leaks of Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle appeared around the web, many Mario fans feared the worst. Our concerns started to dissipate after the game was officially revealed at E3 earlier this year, but they didn't quite went away. Now, after playing the game at Gamescom, I can assure you there's nothing to worry about....

Cuphead is the classic side-scroller I never knew I was missing

Cuphead
I'm not a big fan of classic platformers. I like modern games with rich stories, expensive worlds, and deep gameplay. But there's something about Cuphead that just clicks. It's hard to pinpoint exactly what it is. It could be the charming 1930s animation style, the mascot-like main character or the simple yet grueling gameplay. Whatever it is, it made Cuphead...

Need for Speed Payback took us for a ride in Gamescom 2017

Need for Speed Payback
If you watched EA's Gamescom 2017 presentation, you probably saw the new BMV M5 takes center stage. Well, after the presentation was over I got the chance to get behind the wheel. Not behind the wheel of the actual BMV M5, mind you. I'm talking about the digital version in Need for Speed Payback. And by wheel I'm talking about...

Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin is powered by your mind and PSVR

Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin
Psychonauts 2 is right up there with The Last Guardian and Final Fantasy XV when it comes to highly anticipated games. After a swift Fig campaign, Tim Schafer and his studio Double Fine Productions announced a bridge between the original Pyschonauts and its sequel called Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin. This unique, first-person puzzle game was on hand this weekend at IndieCade...

Steep is a racing game that doesn’t stop on the way to the top

The best part of every E3 are the new games. True, games that were already announced months and even years prior are all fine and good, but there's something really fascinating about a playing a fresh new game you know nothing about. That was exactly the reason why I jumped on the opportunity to play Steep, the new skiing...

Watch Dogs 2 hacks away all barriers set by its predecessor

One of the best experiences I had at E3 this year, was the hands-on demo of Watch Dogs 2. True, I was equally as excited to play the original Watch Dogs at Gamescom of 2013, and it ended up disappointing quite a few of you (we though it was pretty good actually), but it seems Ubisoft is really determined...

Ghost Recon Wildlands brings the military op back to co-op

I'm guessing you all got to see the gameplay demonstration of Ghost Recon Wildlands during Ubisoft's E3 2016 presentation. If not, check it out above and come back to me. In short, it shows a group of four Ghosts tracking down and kidnapping one of the leaders of a drug cartel that took over Bolivia. Well, I recently got the chance...
