As one of the final projects to come from the brief, but impactful, run of developer Clover Studio (the predecessor to a team that would become PlatinumGames), a game like Okami certainly was a good note to end on. The PS2-era action-adventure game–originally released back in 2006–garnered critical acclaim for its striking balance of gameplay that had

Overcooked 2 is a lot like going back for seconds: none of the courses you ate the first time around have changed, but the overall meal is still just as good, provided you’re still hungry. Coming into Overcooked 2, to say I was hungry for more of this co-op centric romp would be spot-on. The original Overcooked caught

WarioWare has always been one of the weirdest, most endearing corners of Nintendo’s wide breadth of IP. Its memorable and funny characters work well in tandem with the unique microgames in order to create minigame collections with a little more versatility than most in other games in its genre. That being said, we actually haven’t

EA’s wildly popular FIFA series is once again hitting PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch this September with FIFA 19. This version of the game comes with its fair share of notable improvements, including the addition of Champions League, an entirely reworked Kick-Off mode, and vastly improved animations. Last month, DualShockers attended an EA

Fortnite might be the most popular game in the world right now, but it sure as heck wasn’t always this way. In fact, there was a time when I wondered if Fortnite was still even slated to release. From the game’s announcement, to release, to then becoming what the phenomenon it is today, Fortnite‘s development is one of the most fascinating and

Comparing other games to Dark Souls has become a tiresome simile in games writing. Is the game you’re playing hard? Sounds like Dark Souls. Does it have refined, burdensome combat? Definitely must be inspired by Dark Souls. Does it fall into the action genre whatsoever? Oh, well Dark Souls created that genre, I’ll have you know. Despite the fatigue with these comparisons,

Right from the beginning, The Banner Saga series from Stoic Studio has been defined by choice. Throughout each installment, players have been tasked with facing hard choices, and whether they are as simple as deciding how to rally your troops before battle, or making the decision between who lives and dies, The Banner Saga games have blended a

Prey: Mooncrash is one of the more interesting pieces of DLC that I’ve come across in quite some time. Taking the core of the Prey formula, Arkane Studios has turned Mooncrash into a rogue-lite that sees you repeatedly trying to escape from the Pytheas Moon Base in a variety of different ways. It’s a strange shift to make, but overall it’s one

There are iconic fanbase rivalries that have seemingly existed since gaming’s earliest age. Do you prefer Super Mario Bros. or Sonic the Hedgehog? What about Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat? But rarely do you see an inter-series rivalry as fierce as the Mega Man versus Mega Man X debates. While Mega Man (or Rockman for Eastern readers) series is the original that kickstarted the iconic Blue Bomber and

While many things will change in MercurySteam’s third-person shooter/brawler Raiders of the Broken Planet as it transitions into its new free-to-play form Spacelords, one thing will remain the same, and that’s the game’s charming art style. In order to know more about it, DualShockers talked with Art Director Jorge Benedito at the studio’s headquarters in San Sebastian de Los Reyes,

When you think about it, it is amazing how resounding Martin Sahlin’s homemade doll Yarny is — especially to an ever-maturing crowd of gamers. Yet ever since the Swedish developer revealed his original project at EA’s 2015 Press Conference, Unravel and Yarny have held a special place in the hearts of indie aficionados. Imagine the surprise when Unravel

It feels like it’s been a decade since the original release of Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker on the often-faulty Wii U. Pegged between Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, Captain Toad had a soft but deserving impact on the home console selling 250,000 copies in its first month and garnering wide critical acclaim. In

It all started with a rocket. Just a few weeks ago in the world of Fortnite, a rocket launch within the game gathered together thousands (if not millions) of players to witness a mysterious rocket launch that caused the beginning of some strange occurrences in-game. Soon after that, more strange twists and turns were making their

A few years ago, platformer fans were yearning for new Mega Man-inspired games, as Capcom was ignoring the franchise at that time. This is what caused Mighty No. 9’s Kickstarter and other titles like the great Azure Striker Gunvolt to rise to prominence. Following an extended stint in Early Access, developer Batterystaple Games has brought
