Earthbound Lives in This New Citizens of Earth Teaser

After a failed Kickstarter campaign, the RPG adventure Citizens of Earth was fortunate enough to be picked up by publisher Atlus to help bring it to the world successfully. Since then, the game has come along very nicely, and its latest teaser trailers shows its heavy influences from the Nintendo’s classic Earthbound more than ever. Instead of a child imbued with psychokinetic abilities, however, Citizens of Earth has you playing as Vice President of the World, recruiting various citizens to [...]

New Abilities, Capture Mode Editor Coming To GTA Online

The launch of GTA Online has been met with a practically mute reaction from the majority of gamers, outright disdain from the minority, and basically no love and affection on the whole. Surprising, given the hype surrounding the online mode when it was first detailed last year.

No word on when that will be, though. I’m excited for Secret Ponchos either way; I’m not alone in [...]

In the Beginning, Valve Rejected Braid

Many people herald Braid as the beginning of the indie developers movement. Jonathan Blow’s new take on the platform genre turned into a breakout hit on Microsoft’s Xbox Live Arcade marketplace. It’s hard to imagine where gaming would be right now without Braid as it really did show up and prove that an indie developer could make something that can move as many units as big publishers. It’s shocking in hindsight to hear then that Valve didn’t think the game [...]

The Last of Us: Remastered Coming Soon

A Sony executive revealed last month that a next-gen version of critically acclaimed PS3 game The Last of Us might be in the works. Well, a banner advertisement was released on the US Sony Entertainment Network website showing off a certain title called The Last of Us Remastered. It looks like it’ll be available for a digital download at $59.99, hopefully with all the DLC packs thrown in as well. I expect it won’t be long before Sony and Naughty [...]
