E3 2019 games – every game confirmed

They just keep coming don't they? A lot of games were announced at E3 2019, things that we didn't know about, as well as stuff that's previously announced, or expansions to already released games.

Devolver Digital’s bundle on Twitch Prime might be deal of the week

While I've my issues with Amazon's global mega-monopoly, I can't deny that the monthly sack of games that Twitch gives out to Amazon Prime subscribers is an oft-impressive bunch.

Sharp pixel art, catchy chiptunes and an interesting twist define this Devolver-published platformer.

I grew up through the late 80s/early 90s. The Messenger is the upcoming debut game from Sabotage Studio, and it looks, at least at first glance, more than a little like…
