A lot is going on in the world of FEZ this week. The amazing game from Polytron turned a year old on the 13th and you can read Phil and Renaud’s heartfelt thanks over on the Polytron site. To date the game has sold 200,000 copies on XBLA which is pretty impressive for a downloadable only 360 game (for reference Super Meat Boy sold about 220,000 on XBLA). Additionally the game [...]

Vancouver, British Columbia held it’s 4th annual Canadian Video Game Awards last night, with categories ranging from Best Technology to Best New Character to Best Game Innovation. This also marks the first major award where not only did Journey not win anything, it wasn’t even nominated. Guess our friends to the north aren’t that fond of sand and scarves. FarCry 3 was the big winner, snagging 6 awards including Game [...]

Doing what they probably should have done a year or so ago, Sony has at last confirmed that it will be porting the Jak & Daxter Trilogy to PS Vita this June. The Naughty Dog developed collection of PS2 platforming goodness will include all three games that were seen on the recent PS3 re-release, which includes Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, Jak II, and Jak 3.

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. Good god I can’t wait for this game to release already… Far Cry 3 was one of my favorite games of 2012 (just behind Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning and Borderlands 2) and when I caught wind of a downloadable offshoot I was excited for some more Far Cry goodness. Then I started seeing that it was being modeled after something shit directly out of the [...]

EDGE, the critically acclaimed game from Mobigame has been in a 4 year long legal battle with a guy named Tim Langdell who claimed that the title of the game infringed on a copyright of his game company called The Edge. Just a few days ago the courts ruled in Mobigame’s favor, and Two Tribes, the publisher who released the game onto Steam and various other platforms, is celebrating by offering the game [...]

Long title, right? But I don’t care. EarthBound is FINALLY coming to the Wii U Virtual Console this year! I’ve been waiting years for this news and I will shout it to the heavens because it’s really happening! No rumor, no speculation, it was announced officially during this morning’s Nintendo Direct press event that it is fact and it is happening later this year. Sadly, no confirmed date yet aside [...]

I’ll level with you; i’m horrendous at all facets of coding.  In fact, i’m beyond horrendous at it. The prospect of dusty books, elongated web-seminars and pages upon pages of code hieroglyphics just makes me want to yawn myself inside out and curl up into a little ball and think about fun things. Thankfully, it seems that a group of ultra-clever computer scientists have picked up on this and have devised a [...]

Somebody with a lot more talent than I’ll ever have in my lifetime, has concocted this rather neat and extremely well-produced looking fan made live-action teaser for Dead Space. It doesn’t show much of the Necromorph menace, but largely the atmosphere and sense of foreboding which was pretty much intrinsic with the IP before it went off the rails is all here, present and accounted for. We’ve got the trailer for you after the jump and [...]

Hoping to utterly to erase any and all taste of last year’s reveal of Splinter Cell: Blacklist‘s decidedly un-stealthy shenanigans, Ubisoft have released a new, stealth focused trailer for the game to remind everyone that the game hasn’t devolved into an insipid, third-person shooter. Rather than the in-game footage which has been released previously, this newest video instead frames Mr. Sam Fishers sneaky goings-on in a more cinematic style; showing off a [...]

State of Decay, the supremely ambitious open-world zombie survival romp for Xbox Live Arcade by Undead Labs, has at last been given a release date. Due to arrive this June, which neatly coincides with Microsoft‘s annual Summer of Arcade promotion, the game looks to be a extremely promising prospect and one of the highlights of the year for Xbox Live Arcade. An open-world zombie survival simulation where you have to build fortifications, recruit people to [...]
