Everyone's favorite game about a knight with a highly undignified weapon is getting a prequel, and how! Starring Spectre Knight as its playable character, the 'Specter of Torment' campaign will arrive as a free update to Shovel Knight [official site]. We've had a peek at his swift moves before but a new trailer shows a lot more of what we should expect when Spectre Knight…

How do you feel about tape cassette players floating in space? Do they intrigue you? Are you interested in them? Would you like to play as one in a game? Telltale Games' upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy series is hitting digital shelves, so to speak, in 2017. Groot. Is that how I use that word?
The third season of Telltale's The Walking Dead is coming soon, and it'll be premiering with two episodes instead of the usual one. The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series - A New Frontier [official site] will continue to follow Clementine, who featured prominently in season one, and was the main character of season two.
Three of the best entries in Sid Meier's classic Civilization series are available now on GOG. Right now you can get Civilization III: Complete, Civilization IV: The Complete Edition, and CivCity: Rome DRM-free from the GOG website or GOG Galaxy client. And with the weekend upon us, what's better than curling up with games that grip you tightly and just won't let you go?
I've been avidly following the development of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard [official site], though I must say it's not been without some trepidation. Resident Evil 6 did so much to destroy the image of Capcom's venerable series I feared it may not be able to make a comeback. Fortunately, the team behind Resident Evil 7: Biohazard seems to realize that the only way to go…
At the Nasdaq 35th Investor Program, EA Chief Financial Officer Blake Jorgensen stated that a new Battlefield title wouldn't be releasing for a "couple of years." Instead EA will be pushing Star Wars Battlefront's [official site] sequel (Star Wars Battlefront III 2?) as their big fall shooter.
Ubisoft's "30 Days of Giveaways" is heating up on December 7 when Assassin's Creed III [official site] will be free to any and all who want it. Assassin's Creed III does tend to be fans' least favorite entry in the series, but for the price who can complain?
I've had a go at Factorio [official site], and even managed to automate resource mining and production. I thought I had a good grip on the game until I saw what DaveMcW was able to create. Using just the components available in the base game, he managed to build what is essentially a video stream decoder and display program.
Project Abyss [official site] has exited Steam Early Access and properly launched into the depths. Tall Story Studios' 2D underwater RPG puts you in control of a mini-sub as a diver looking for riches in underwater salvage. You'll quickly be caught up in a story that puts you in the line of fire as you attempt to unravel a world-shaking mystery.
Whether you're a fan of American Football or not, the idea of Warhammer's various factions solving their problems on the gridiron is hilarious. Games Workshop's Blood Bowl 2 [official site] lets you do just that, and they've added another team for the side of Chaos, the Nurgle team, in new DLC.
The free-to-play action-RPG Path of Exile's [official website] next update will brings a lot to the table. Next week Grinding Gear Games will launch the Breach content update, which will add a bevy of bosses, item enhancements, and a whole new challenge league.
If you're a fan of virtual farming, then chances are you're one of the over one million players that have bought a copy of Farm Simulator 17 [official site]. Giants Software and Focus Home Interactive say that the launch sales of one million units in its first month is almost twice the sales of the previous installment at launch.
Every once in a while, I encounter a game that just doesn't fit any established genre. Screeps [official site] is a real-time strategy game, and it's an MMO, but not in the vein of any I've ever seen before. You see, unlike StarCraft or Age of Empires, your units in Screeps don't come with an AI or fancy control interface. Instead, you have to code…
The motto of Brief Karate Foolish [official site] ran through Google Translate is: "First of all, discard reason. Everything is from then!" This free "super real match fighting game," is all about the majesty and grace of brief-wearing Japanese men fighting to the death for a mystical pair of black briefs. That sounds like a typical Friday night for me, only I'd prefer to wear…
Monomi Park's Slime Rancher [official site], that wacky and wiggly slime wrangling game, this week received a significant update in the Slime Science Update, available now. In it you can find numerous slimes and the basics of Slime Science itself. It is much stickier than regular science, you see, and you must let the game educate you before you can be trusted with it.
Mi-Clos Studio's Out There from 2014 is a roguelike that can be devastatingly harsh, set in a lonely, mysterious universe. That's where most of the harshness comes in, after all. You take up the role of an astronaut who's just woken from cryogenic sleep far from our solar system. Along the way you discover ancient alien relics that assist you in your journey, but their origins aren't ever really…
The designer behind the massively popular Plants vs. Zombies, George Fan, has opened a new studio and left his old toys behind. With the gang at All Yes Good, he's working on a full version of Octogeddon, a game he started during a game jam. It's a common concept: you play as a giant mutant octopus, growing weird new fightlimbs.
League of Legends [official site] is forever adding new champions to its roster. Much like I add lip balms and perfumes to my dresser because I hoard them, Riot Games creates and adds new characters every so often because they can and people love to purchase skins for them. Hell, I don't even play that often and I'm tempted by Arcade Miss Fortune and Jinx.…
Fridges of the Pacific Northwest [official site] takes you to a galaxy of fridges. There are enough fridges in this game to comprise a galaxy. How is that even possible? It is. Each fridge has signage that is lovingly recreated from the results of a 2016 photojournalism project that documented refrigerators from workplaces across the Pacific Northwest.
Episode 4 of Batman - The Telltale Series [official site] has Batman locked in Arkham Asylum, and my favorite Danny DeVito character has taken over Wayne Enterprises. In the meantime Harvey Dent and the Children of Arkham are at each other's throats, and who knows who's going to help Batman this time?! Biff! Zot!
