Here’s over 20 minutes of The Outer Worlds E3 2019 gameplay footage

I saw The Outer Worlds behind closed doors at E3 last week, and I was going to write about it and tell you how cool it looked, despite the gameplay demo being a fairly slight 20-or-so minute showing compared to Cyberpunk 2077's near hour-long presentation. Now I don't have to, because pretty much everything I saw has been put on the internet anyway! It kicks off at the 4.30 mark:You'll see one of the game's towns in action, how you can switch allegiances, and how to manipulate characters in conv

Dr. Mario World hits Android and iOS in July, here’s how it plays

Nintendo is bringing Dr. Mario to mobile devices with Dr. Mario World, a new spin on the puzzle game series. Dr. Mario World will be released for Android and iOS devices on July 10, Nintendo announced on Monday. Dr. Mario World’s basic rules follow the previous games’ classic color-matching mechanics: destroy viruses by lining up similarly colored medicine capsules. In Dr. Mario World, he’ll be joined by characters like Dr. Peach, Dr. Toad, Dr. Yoshi, and Dr. Bowser, each of whom will have their

The Outer Worlds hands-on: The best RPG Bethesda never made

Dan McPhee, The Outer Worlds' Narrative Designer, explains why Obsidian decided to point the spotlight on consumer culture for this particular space western adventure. That scrappy, absurdist aura of comedy bleeds into The Outer Worlds' gameplay, too, especially with regards to its character progression system, made up primarily by Obsidian’s familiar system of perks and flaws. In that sense, The Outer Worlds is shaping up to be a distinctly Obsidian RPG in all the right ways, with all the chara

The Outer Worlds doesn’t shy away from its Fallout roots – and that’s great

When Obsidian Entertainment revealed The Outer Worlds at E3 2018 it was hard to ignore the radioactive elephant in the room. But has The Outer Worlds got what it takes to fill void left by Fallout? The overarching theme of The Outer Worlds is inherently bleak. In The Outer Worlds, corporations are king and Obsidian take advantage of this to deliver comedy with a bite. "The things you love about the games that we make, we want to provide to you in The Outer Worlds.

The Outer Worlds is Obsidian’s RPG Designed for ‘Fallout’ Fans

Without ever mentioning the Fallout franchise, almost everything about what Obsidian had a very Fallout feel to it, but Obsidian’s version of Fallout. Stats imply different builds, and it sounds as though The Outer Worlds will support a variety of play styles like the low intelligence, dumb build. While Outer Worlds is an RPG from a variety of angles, the combat still has a familiar FPS lineage. So for fans looking to scratch that familiar itch, it appears The Outer Worlds is not going to disapp

No More Heroes 3 is announced with a delightful trailer

Nintendo announced No More Heroes 3 during its Nintendo Direct at E3 2019, delighting fans of the series who have been waiting for a new game since Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes, which was released in January of this year. The last core game in the series was No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle, however, which was released back in 2010. The original games sprung from the mind of Suda51, who brought a very unique ... viewpoint to the game’s world. It’s that sense of fun and anarchy that a

Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair revealed

Iguana and bat duo Yooka and Laylee are being thrown into another misadventure this year. Playtonic's following up its Banjo-Kazooie-inspired platformer with Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair. So it's ditching the old style 3D sandboxy worlds for 2.5D platforming full of obstacles, secret paths and all that good stuff and a separate 3D overworld that more focused on puzzles. While the last game had some nostalgic charms, they weren't quite enough. Publisher Team17 will be revealing more about

Magic: The Gathering took a long while to find the right partner for its animated series

This week the team behind Magic: The Gathering unveiled a plan for an ambitious new animated series. This all comes as quite a shock; when I spoke with Jeremy Jarvis, franchise team director for Magic: The Gathering, one year ago, he frankly didn’t have much to say about the collectible card game’s future as a media property. I need you to super trust me right now as we talk on the phone. “‘Oh, I can tell you worked on the card game for 10 years,’” he mocks, mimicking the push back he’s received
