Quake Champions will be free-to-play with a unique set of microtransactions. Free-to-play folks will have access to the Ranger champion permanently. Those who buy the “Champion Pack” will unlock everyone permanently. Polygon got the word from Creative Director Tim Willits, and he explained that “At its core, it’s a free-to-play gam… “…with the option to buy the Champion Pack and just...

Serial Cleaner - A game where you clean up the mob's mess with stealth in mind

Joey Davidson

It’s the 1970s. The mob is in full-swing killing mode. They leave crime scenes in a state of utter gore. The police come to mark evidence and wait. Then there’s you, the Serial Cleaner. It’s your job to sneak into these crime scenes, dispose of the bodies, steal the evidence and clean up as much of the blood as the contract demands. Serial Cleaner plays like a mix of Hotline Miami and...

The Gardens Between is a hypnotic puzzling adventure with memories of the late-80s

The Gardens Between is a hypnotic puzzling adventure with memories of the late-80s

Joey Davidson

In The Gardens Between, players control the forward and backward flow of time as two best friends move about a space built from their shared memories. They are Arina and Frendt. The game is equal measures of hypnotic and relaxing, and the puzzle design stands as something fresh and simple when compared to what the rest of the business is doing. If you’re here often, you know me and...

We played Tumbleseed, a brilliant game from the makers of Threes!, Ridiculous Fishing

We played Tumbleseed, a brilliant game from the makers of Threes!, Ridiculous Fishing

Joey Davidson

Describing Tumbleseed is tough. When it was pitched to us in an email ahead of the show, one of the small team compared it to an old, mechanical arcade game from Taito. Here’s that game. Got it? Here’s Tumbleseed. Wild, right? Fall in a hole, lose a heart. Get hit by an enemy, lose a heart. Hit spikes, die immediately. You play a seed, supposedly one spoken of in prophecy, that...

Zelda: Breath of the Wild finally shakes Nintendo's biggest design problem

Zelda: Breath of the Wild finally shakes Nintendo's biggest design problem

Joey Davidson

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild deserves a standing ovation for finally bucking Nintendo’s borderline insulting trend of treating players like complete idiots. Bravo. Did you play The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword? If you loved it, I’m about to offend you. I don’t think it was a very good Zelda game. In fact, I’ll offer that it was on the bad side of the franchise’s spectrum....

In Zelda: Breath of the Wild, you can change your heart and stamina upgrades

In Zelda: Breath of the Wild, you can change your heart and stamina upgrades

Joey Davidson

I… I had no idea this was possible. I’m around 10 to 15 hours into my first playthrough of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and I’ve been taking my time when it comes to selecting whether or not I upgrade my heart containers or my stamina meter after clearing shrines. I don’t want to get it wrong, quite honestly, and wish I had more of one or less of another. The decisions have...

Zelda: Breath of the Wild infinite climbing glitch discovered - Scale before it's patched

Zelda: Breath of the Wild infinite climbing glitch discovered - Scale before it's patched

Joey Davidson

It’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Your name is Link, and you’re trying to save Hyrule again. You’ve got mountains to scale. Lots of them. You could upgrade your stamina meter the old fashioned way by visiting lots and lots of shrines. That’ll get you to the top of most mountains after a few dozen hours of work. Don’t have time for that? I’m sticking to the standard way,...

Nintendo Switch "one of the strongest and most successful console launches" for GameStop in years

Joey Davidson

The Nintendo Switch launched worldwide last Friday, March 3, and it was the talk of the weekend. Some had it pre-ordered, some went with online retailers and some waited in lines to partake in midnight launches. GameStop was one of the shops holding midnight launch events, and it sounds like the Switch has been a hot item for the retailer. Game Rant caught up with GameStop Senior...
