Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Canceled for Linux and MacOS X

In 1997, Koji Igarashi changed side-scrolling action-platformers forever with Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. This genre-defining game brought the world of Castlevania to the exploration-based style that had allowed the Metroid franchise to stand apart from the rest. Iga, as he's known, crafted a handful of games along the same lines as SOTN for Nintendo's various portable consoles before being let go from Konami. Since then, Konami hasn't created anything akin to SOTN an...

The Forest Bringing Its Intense Survival Horror Exclusively to PS4 This November

Survival horror is a genre many have explored, with varying degrees of success. One shining example of the genre done right is Endnight Games' PC Early Access title 'The Forest'.

The biggest change to Super X Chess is that it allows you to combine pieces, and it's easy to do. All you have to do is move your piece to the same square as another one to ...

Yoshi's Crafted World and Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn Get Dated For March

Remember Yoshi's Crafted World? Yeah, it's been a while since we've heard from Nintendo on that front, hasn't it? They had their reasons for that, of course.

Now, it looks as if the gears are winding down and the game is close to being complete. Just the other day, Nintendo announced the official release date for Yosh...

Rogue Empire: Dungeon Crawler RPG Leaps Out of Early Access

Overhead RPGs aren't exactly en vogue - but they can result in some of the most fun and challenging adventures out there. Games like Titan Quest have blended RPGs with Souls-esque gameplay, but nothing has quite blended a dungeon-crawler with a rogue-like until now. Rogue Empire is the first game from Portal Entertainment and merges those sub-genres together alongside tactical turn-based RPGs as well to form something that stands on its own.The game's blend of turn-based RPG ...

Fire Emblem Three Houses Coming To Switch In 2019

When Nintendo brought the Switch to the world, one promise that they made was that they were going to do all they could to not only keep the gaming library full but also to bring as many of their big franchises to the system. As such, last year they announced before the system's launch that a title from the Fire Emblem franchise would be coming to the console. However, since then there had been no word on what the game would be like or what it would be called. But at the Nint...
