I keep trying to come up with comparisons for Pony Island, which has in the three days since its release already become one of the most talked-about games of the year.  It’s a darker Frog Fractions.  It’s Undertale with better gameplay.  Nothing can quite communicate the wonderful, special weirdness that makes the game the first…

Six days in and already people are calling 2016 the “Year of VR”, usually followed by “finally“.  It’s been half a decade since development began on the Oculus Rift, the first and probably most famous virtual reality device coming out this year, and now, at long last, it’s available for pre-order.  You can get it…

Adult Swim, a company who once upon a time helped me to discover the magic of Home Movies and Cowboy Bebop, has had a successful run of making fun games when they aren’t creating a hilarious block of TV programming. One of their soon to be released titles is a game based off of Rick…

Kickstarter, the fan funded platform that’s help to create everything from potato salads to fully realized video games, can be as cool as it is silly at times, and the latest Star Wars RPG definitely belongs in the second camp. Devin Tripp, the guy who started this “new ambitious” project, has stated he wishes to…

(Note: Originally written by Gabriel Brown) An effective assault requires speed and decisiveness. Unfotunately for Rainbow Six: Siege Fans, Ubisoft doesn’t seem capable of such prowess in terms of delivering extra content with the same level of tactical ease. The fan favorite multiplayer shooter’s first post-launch DLC, entitled Black Ice, has been pushed back to…

For years, Assassin’s Creed has been the poster child for series annualization, a term which refers to making basically the same game every year with new graphics and one or two minor gameplay additions (see also: Madden, Call of Duty).  However, that may be changing according to anonymous 4chan posts by someone claiming to be…

2015 has come and gone, and what a whirlwind year for gaming it was. Gamers were treated to a handful of surprises, both good and bad. Everyone finally got their hands on Fallout 4 after an excessive wait, and Metal Gear Solid V delivered a healthy amount of controversy. Loads of people fell in love…

Just over 22 years on, and Doom is somehow still maintaining one of the biggest and best modding communities out there.  And even if you don’t read the Cacowards every year or keep up with the modding scene like I do, there’s a good chance you’ve heard of Brutal Doom, the critical darling that captured…

We’re counting down the last 5 days of 2015 with New Year’s Resolutions for 5 major publishers to follow.  The odds of them listening are slim, but at least when they screw up again we can say “told you so.” [DAY 1] [DAY 2] [DAY 3] [DAY 4] [DAY 5] Our final New Year’s Resolution…

With today being New Years Eve, the year 2015 will end in just a few hours, while the year has officially ended in the Video Game industry. Some good moments in video game history,  some bad, and even some groundbreaking moments ever made in Video Game history. It’s an understatement to say that 2015 was another vanilla…
