Help A Bunny From The Future Become Mayor By Murdering His Enemies

Spoiler: the stupid joke-gimmick glasses I'm wearing at the beginning of this video don't do anything to make Not a Hero look any cooler. That's okay, though. The new over-the-top action game doesn't need help looking cool, because it happens in 2.25D. » 4/18/14 4:30pm Friday 4:30pm

​A Little Bit of Sonic, Some Super Meat Boy and a Lot of Difficulty

Video game movement's the best, isn't it? Jumping higher than possible in reality, dodging, rolling and sprinting with impossible smoothness across precise vectors… it's no wonder you get limitations like a double jump or short dash distances.

​What It Looks Like to Play a Four-Dimensional Game

Some games ask you to shoot, jump or strategize in ways that are similar to what you've done. Sure, there may be unique tweaks designed to pique your interest but you mostly go in knowing what to expect.

Genius And His Lego Robot Take Cheating To A New Level

Uli Kilian once set a world record by solving 100 Rubik's Cubes while running a marathon at the same time. So he's smart. And fit. But the smartest thing he's done might have been building a robot to tap his iPad screen in the middle of the night so that he wakes up to a ton of money in a mediocre free-to-play game.… » 4/15/14 11:30am Tuesday 11:30am

​Best Game About Being a Spider Gets a Sequel with a Real-World Twist

Five years ago, Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor became an instant classic in the iPhone games library. The moody, wordless experience turned players into multi-legged predators wending their way into creepy environments and a foreboding meta-story. That game's sequel won't just be debuting on iOS; it'll be on… » 4/13/14 5:00pm 4/13/14 5:00pm

You're the One Writing the Story in This Weird, Beautiful Sci-Fi Game

Usually, games that happen beyond Earth's atmosphere take you to planets teeming with life. Meeting creatures with tentacles where hair or hands should be or with strangely angled mandibles isn't uncommon in sci-fi games.
