During this year’s PAX East 2018 several indie games were on display, and while many have caught my eye, We Are Fuzzy’s twin-stick shooter Sleep Tight is one of a small handful that has earned my undivided attention. Sleep Tight‘s premise has players controlling a kid as they defend themselves from hordes of creepy monsters that prey upon them

For some time now, Pete Hines has been the face of Bethesda Softworks, one of gaming’s biggest third-party publishers. If you’ve been familiar with Bethesda in any capacity or have watched any of the company’s E3 presentations the past few years, you’ve likely been exposed to Hines and his straight-shooting, down-to-Earth attitude. During PAX East

While I am not typically the biggest fan of the RTS genre, Nintendo’s more puzzle-focused take on the strategy — Pikmin — has always stuck with me. Micromanaging cute little alien creatures, each with unique abilities, clicked with me more than “pure” RTS games, and I still consider it one of Nintendo’s most underrated series. Unfortunately, we

When it comes to new creative takes on “Metroidvania” style gameplay, DrinkBox Studios’ Guacamelee! was among one of the most creative in the genre with its inspirations from Mexican culture and luchador wrestling. Thankfully, the game’s unique take on the style of gameplay from Metroid and Castlevania didn’t go unnoticed, and with the upcoming Guacamelee! 2 coming later this year, players

The Muv-Luv series is considered by many the pinnacle of the visual novel genre, mostly due to its complex and dramatic stories, its interesting characters, and the top-notch mecha design that you wouldn’t expect in this kind of game. Yet, while its popularity certainly spiked after the successful Kickstarter that resulted in the western release

Today Atlus shared two new TV commercials about its upcoming twin rhythm games Persona 5 Dancing Star Night and Persona 3 Dancing Moon Night directly on its Twitter account. The clips are brief, as they follow the usual fifteen-second format that TV commercials often have in Japan, but they’re enough to show several of our beloved heroes and heroines

The World Conqueror series has made the transition from mobile to… mobile — well, handheld. The Switch iteration doesn’t do much different, and in no way pushes the RTS genre in any way. But if you’re looking for a bite-sized strategy game on the handheld-hybrid, look no further, World Conqueror X might just scratch a strategic itch. If you’re

Avast ye scurvy dogs, it’s time to hit the Sea of Thieves! Usually we do an PS4 game for our community night, but tonight we’re switching consoles. Gather round for an Xbox One community night. Or PC. A bunch of us will be playing on PC. Ain’t crossplay a (potentially) beautiful thing? It’s time for DualShockers’ Community

The colonization of outside worlds has been explored in video games for decades. Red Faction, Doom, Mass Effect, and more have all brought human life to the red planet. However, there haven’t been many that put you in direct control of the colonization process. Sure, it has been explored to a certain degree but the

The opening hours of The Long Reach are incredibly intriguing, and the story remains interesting throughout. Things can sometimes get a little confusing and dialog can sometimes make the tone of the game feel a bit uneven. But I am happy to say that if you’re looking for a bite-sized thriller to jump into that won’t take

The Atelier is about to hit the age of 20 and looking back at the series shows many tweaks and updates to the overall gameplay and visuals. With the upcoming release of Atelier Lydie & Suelle: The Alchemists and the Mysterious Paintings, we wanted to take a look at the Mysterious trilogy and show the leaps in world

Kingdom Come: Deliverance from Warhorse Studios caught my eye shortly after its initial crowdfunding campaign. Its amazing hook of being a very realistic RPG about a character who isn’t a genre stereotype “chosen one.” Instead, you are venturing through a historically-accurate Bohemia during medieval times, making the game stand out from all other RPGs on

There’s a lot of debate over developers porting previously released title to Nintendo Switch. Some see it as a great way for developers to show support, while others think it results in an underwhelming game library, needless port-begging, and half-heartedly made ports. Botched releases like WWE 2K18 and RiME may make some people hesitant about third-party ports, but

Stage 1 of Overwatch League has ended in a series that did not go entirely as expected. From the beginning, the Seoul Dynasty was the favorite to win; for most of the first stage, they were incredibly dominant as they defeated the Los Angeles Gladiators, Dallas Fuel, Boston Uprising, and more with ease. It wasn’t

Different cultures and their mythologies have survived for generations through storytelling, both orally and visually. Unfortunately, a side-effect of globalization is the loss of tradition and the intriguing stories of smaller peoples like Mexico’s Tarahumara, which has a very distinct and creative mythology surrounding it that not many people know about. That’s why developer Lienzo took
