One Last Character Vignette for LEGO Star Wars: The Force AwakensJason Love

If you didn't know, LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens makes its debut on every gaming platform ever next week. To ensure it stays in the forefront of your mind, here's one last character vignette featuring everyone's favorite Vader fan boy: Kylo Ren. I'm glad for the bit of fun poking they have with Kylo in this. To...

Many of the rogue-lite games we see these days all fall within the boundaries of the "twin-stick shooter" genre. While both Charles Webb and Daniel Crockenberg of Faux-Operative Games are fans of these titles, they wanted to do something a little different with Ruin of the Reckless; they wanted to make a "twin-stick fi...

The one-man team behind the game, Pascal Bestebroer, has been working hard to improve upon the original. For starters, the procedural generation that determines not only the layout for a dungeon floor also takes into consideration any quests that the players may be assigned. There's a pretty interesting blog post about it on the Orangepixel site, for those interested in seeing some of the "behind the scenes" stuff. Along with an improved level generator, the roster of characters has been increased to eight. The Wizard, Warrior, Elf, and Valkyrie can be joined by the Thief, Paladin, Mage, and Barbarian, once you unlock them that is.

Eagle eyed readers will know that Pre-Sequel was released for Shield TV earlier this year. The port brought just about everything from the console/PC version to the set top device, complete with moderately limited co-op. Borderlands 2 will get the same treatment, and even though Nvidia didn't specifically say "it'll have co-op", we're assuming that's a given. Bringing both games to the Shield Tablet requires a bit more work, as it packs a little less oomph than its TV-tethered brother. No word on if or how co-op would work on a handheld device, but we're guessing two player local is the best we can hope for.

When you place the new "Creation Crystal" toy onto the new Portal of Power, you'll be taken into a series of character creation menus that let you pick you Skylander's Battle Class (e.g., Knight, Sorcerer, Bowslinger) that affect the character's abilities, its appearance and catchphrases, and its powers. All of this gets saved to the crystal so you can use that creation over and over again. Each crystal is single-use only, however, and is also of a particular element type, i.e., fire, water. So if you want to make a Fire Knight and a Fire Sorcerer, you'll have to buy two Fire-type Creation Crystals.

Up to this point, much of the gameplay we've seen of Cuphead has been of a little teacup man (or men, in co-op) battling against giant bosses. While boss rush is fun, it's also nice to do something else, like traverse a level. The latest video for the game shows that our wish is granted and you'll be doing more than just fight...

Even though all of Sony's various systems use PSN, it is only the PlayStation 4 version of Force Awakens that has the demo. Sorry to all you Playstation 3 and Vita owners out there.

Though it was only mentioned as a single-player campaign during the conference itself, the official website for the game reveals a bit more; namely that the campaign can be played with another person locally or online. You can check out the gameplay footage over here, which shows off the combat system in a little more depth. The actual campaign itself will take you on a quest to defeat the warlord Apollyon and save your people.

The Behemoth's next title, Pit People, will kick off its closed beta very soon. This will be the first chance for quite a few of us to get hands-on with the title and see what this "turn-based, co-op adventure" is all about. The registration form to try and participate in the beta isn't posted yet, but y...

When the fall comes around, things kick off with Adventure Time and Mission: Impossible "level packs," Harry Potter and Adventure Time "team packs," and an A-Team "fun pack." As a quick breakdown of what all of that means, the level packs include a new level, new character, and a couple new gadgets or vehicles, the team packs include characters and gadgets/vehicles, and the fun packs include a character and a gadget or vehicle. All of this new content will be compatible with the existing LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack, so you won't need to buy anything but the expansions.

Described by the developers as a "twin stick 'fighter' roguelike," Ruin of the Reckless just recently made it through the Steam Greenlight process, so we can expect to see it up there at some point. While the graphics may remind you of the recent Hyper Light Drifter, the action itself has more in common with a title like Nuclear Throne. In fact, the devs have even cited that titles as inspiration.

I, by my very nature, do not deal with the unknown very well, making it apparent from an early age that I would require a companion in my expeditions into Virtual Realms.  It's partly why my friends and I spent many an hour watching each other play Morrowind in a dingy bedroom/basement combo.  It's why I placed so m...
