Let’s chatter over… Prey

Earlier in the week we ran both words and video discussing and demonstrating the first hour of Arkane's upcoming shoot-o-explorey game Prey [official site], but today we're doing both. Here's the first of two videos in which I commentate as I play through said opening hour, pointing out some of the details you or I might have missed and generally chatting about how it all…

Let’s Chatter Over… Action Henk’s Toy-stalgic Butt Sliding

Are videogames art? Or are they toys, children's playthings powered by tech so cutting-edge that it can cut the edges off other edges? Action Henk replies with a curt, confident, "Why not both?" It's a toy-themed (think Toy Story) racer-platformer that hearkens to classics like old-school Sonic as well as modern leaderboard-driven stunt games like Trials. It's simple and, as a result, refreshingly pure. It's…

Why Did Nobody Play The Floor Is Jelly?

Hey you! Yeah, you. The one with the facial expression that says, "I think I have a relatively full and complete understanding of my world's physical properties, including the basic solid nature of the ground beneath my feet." YOU ARE WRONG. The Floor Is Jelly. Other things are jelly too. Trees, lamps, houses, your sense of morality - all of that. Really though, it's not…

Rise & Stream: Watch Us Chatter Over Thief, Resident Evil 4

It's that time of week again, the strange, giddy twilight between the new week and the old. It gives me strength, allowing me to briefly evolve from my larval news slave form into a full-blown human being with thoughts and feelings and a face. "What should I do with this incredible yet oh-so-fleeting window of opportunity?" I wonder aloud. "Fight crime? Raise money for good…

Video Impressions: Titanfall’s Beta

Titanfall's beta is officially kicking off on February 14th and lasting for, um, not very many days. Seems kind of odd in the year 2014 ADEA (Anno Domini Earlyaei Accessus), but oh well. Promotional beta or not, Titanfall continues to be worthy of a blinding, blip-blip-blipping spot on your radar. I got the chance to go hands-on with a very close to beta version for…

Let’s Chatter/Splatter Over… Hyper Light Drifter

Hyper Light Drifter is beautiful. Its loud yet effortless art direction screams a quiet confidence, a vision that's both bold and incredibly vulnerable. I very much like what I see, and many, many others agree - to the tune of $645k, in fact. But looks alone don't make a game. If Hyper Light Drifter doesn't play well, then all the glowing pinks and passionate purples…

Let’s Chatter Over… Wasteland 2

Wasteland 2's beta is officially go! Well, for backers anyway. I booted it up the second Steam finished prying it from some server's synthetic grip, and I realized something: I was nervous. My expectations were riding extremely high, and I couldn't help but fear that inXile's return to post-apocalyptic role-playing's roots would let me down. What I'd seen up to that point had my head…
