Playtonic Games, crafters of the crowdfunded Banjo-Kazooie love letter known as Yooka-Laylee, have just dropped the announcement everybody’s been waiting for….the game is nearly complete and we have a release date!

That’s sad news for Nintendo fans (who, let’s face it, were most likely to be enthused for this). But here’s a new Yooka-Laylee trailer to lift your spirits, featuring the reveal of a new world: Capital Cashino!
World War Z is coming back…kind of. It’s largely the same game, but it’s headed to a new platform (Nintendo Switch) with the Deluxe Edition that will contain all the content previously released on PS4 and XBox One. So finally, Switch can stand equally with its contemporaries, right? I hope
Passing the Turing Test is the ultimate goal of robot builders: that is, creating an AI so advanced that an actual human cannot tell the difference. But what if, as a consequence, you could be a robot and not realize it? That’s the question indie developers Metagalaxy Panda are dramatizing
Despite being a tabletop franchise first, Vampire The Masquerade is no stranger to the world of video games. Now another one is on the way, but it’s a bit different from the two Bloodlines games that came out in recent years. Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodhunt will be free to play,
It’s been a while since we brought up the World War Z video game, released for Playstation 4, XBox One and PC in the spring of 2019. It’s back in the news because…they finally figured out how to get it running on Switch. It’ll be interesting to see what it
