Yooka-Laylee And The Impossible Lair jumps out today

Playtonic's platforming power pals Yooka and Laylee today return with a new retro-styled adventure, Yooka-Laylee And The Impossible Lair. This is thrown back a few years earlier than their 3D debut adventure (see our Yooka-Laylee review for more on that), this time jumping around in side-on sections with top-down overworld hub bits too. The important thing is, the lizard and bat are friends and they…

The 10 best games like Dark Souls

Sorry, definition nerds. “Soulslike” is a word now. Disgusting, I know, but this is how genres are made. Along comes a giant like Dark Souls that everybody won’t stop bleating about and soon it has copycats. Before you know it, a swarm of like-minded games with sparse checkpoints and lethal attacks are scuttling around, leaving slime trails and biting your ankles for surprisingly massive damage.…

Overcooked 2 goes to the circus in its latest DLC

One might be forgiven for thinking that Overcooked 2 is already a Carnival Of Chaos, but it’s becoming even more so with its latest DLC. As ever, there’s new levels and recipes to tackle, and new chefs to do so with. But there's also a new mechanic: huge great cannons to blast yourself out of. You know, for when your pal is on the other…

Yooka-Laylee And The Impossible Lair bounces out in October

Lizard and bat superfriends Yooka and Laylee will return for their second retro-styled platforming adventure on October 8th, developers Playtonic Games announced this week. Following the Banjo-Kazooie-inspired 3D platforming of 2017's Yooka-Laylee, they're looking just a smidgen earlier (or perhaps adjacent?) with Yooka-Laylee And The Impossible Lair, a side-scrolling "2.5D" platformer with a top-down 3D overlord. History be damned, this is the present and the…

Have You Played… Worms World Party Remastered?

I'm not sure I have, to be honest. With Worms games, it's hard to tell where one begins and the other ends - much like some real world worms. Was there supposed to be a defining characteristic of Worms World Party? Did it come out ten years ago or five? I don't know, and there is literally no available resource that could tell me the…

My Time At Portia gets in the mood for love with a romance update

Harvest Moonesque wholesome life simulator My Time At Portia just got an injection of romantic side-quests in celebration of this week's Chinese Qixi Festival, also known as China's Valentine's Day. In the words of my country's greatest poetess of love Celine Dion: Near, far, wherever you are, I believe that free updates are bon ("good" in French).

Overcooked is free to keep on Epic Games Store this week

The Epic Game Store's giveaway du jour is the brillo Overcooked. A co-op cooking game for up to four (local only) about wobbly little chefs running around top-down diorama kitchens, preparing ingredients and serving dishes. Simple, except sometimes you're trying to serve food during an earthquake, or across a kitchen built into multiple moving trucks. Good fun, and while its sequel improved on the recipe,…

Have You Played…Worms: Armageddon?

Worms Armageddon has the distinction of being the first game I took seriously. I don't know why, it was just a mindless game about worms blowing each other up with "accidental" mine placement and the occasional French Sheep Strike. How could that possibly be competitive? Well, back in the glory days of the internet, before things like voice chat that allowed people to hurl abuse at…

Fresh Overcooked 2 DLC brings a Hangry Horde to the gates

Night Of The Hangry Horde is a DLC that introduces a wave-based attack by the game’s ravenous zombie loaves, the unbread, along with new recipes, chefs, and…

Hell Let Loose dives into the hundred-player trenches of early access

Jumbo-scale World War 2 FPS Hell Let Loose launched into early access yesterday, and after some launch-day troubles seems to be gaining the acceptance of the historical shooter crowd. While developers Black Matter have at least one full year of development still planned, players can jump in now for some gritty squad combat on a massive scale, with huge maps and fifty players a team.…

Yooka-Laylee And The Impossible Lair making the retro platformer more retro

After looking back to ye oldene dayes with N64-style collect-o-jumper Yooka-Laylee, developers Playtonic Games are now leaping back another generation with its follow-up. Today they announced Yooka-Laylee And The Impossible Lair, a side-scrolling platformer linked by a top-down overworld with mild puzzling. After more years and maybe they'll go through Super Mario, then back through Donkey Kong, Pong, and oscilloscope games, ending with unidentifiable games…

Blasphemous blesses us with a grisly new trailer

If there's one thing that a Souls-alike needs to get right (Soulsyvania, in this case), it's evocative boss names, and Blasphemous clearly has it all worked out. Featuring the likes of "Expósito, Scion Of Abjuration", "Three Anguishes" and "Our Lady Of The Charred Visage" in its new trailer, it's no surprise that The Game Kitchen's grim platform hack n' slasher has attracted publisher Team 17.…

Build factories to make food in Automachef this summer

Cooking is a puzzle of chemistry and engineering process, really, the correct application of thermal and kinetic energy to the correct combination of materials in the correct order. Fry 'em ups like Overcooked and Cook, Serve, Delicious channel that into chaotic time-management and now Automachef is coming on an industrial scale, having us construct production lines to create meals en masse. Think more along the…

Genesis Alpha One lands on the Epic Store today

Genesis Alpha One - a ship-building, space-exploring roguelike management FPS of mad ambition - is out now. One of the lesser-known exclusives snatched away from Steam for temporary Epic Store exclusivity, Radiation Blue's game of ethically questionable (final) frontier survival has been on my radar for a while. Not only are you trying to maintain and expand a colony ship as it makes its way…

My Time At Portia review

It’s hard to keep your eyes off the horizon in My Time At Portia. Its valleys live in the jagged shadow of broken high-rises, buildings draped with moss and towering factories splitting apart at the seams. I needed to concentrate on the group of adorable pastel coloured llamas ahead. My presence didn’t interrupt their frolicking for a second, but I wished they’d at least try…

My Time At Portia harvests full release today

The game which sounds like summer hols at your posh boarding school gal pal's chateau spent riding horses and investigating the secrets of the grandmother who lives in the attic but is in fact a build-o-farm 'em up, My Time At Portia, today launched properly. A bit like a 3D take on Stardew Valley and Harvest Moon and such, it's about farming and fighting and…
