REVIEWS Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Faf Review
I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

Godzilla fans enjoyed the recent film, but will they feel the same way about the new video game?

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

DAILY MANIFESTO

The Download April 4th, 2013

Posted on Thursday, April 4 @ 17:23:50 Eastern by

Ready to fill those hard drives up before the Sony and Microsoft reveal that nothing will transfer to the new ones? I sure am! Better get it off the servers while you can folks. The Download is a sinking ship and I am the Captain. I'll just be downstairs eating while I leave you to steer the ship in the comments.

Nintendo eShop

If you wanted to play every game in this week's eShop update simulaneously, you'd be looking at 15 screens. I don't have to tell you that that's crazy and you shouldn't try it. You'd need a lot of hands too.

Xbox Live Arcade

Hatting Hattington and a bunch of evil techno-cats enslave you in Battleblock Theater, where you'll jump, climb, and explode into tiny bits. It's that awesome. PlayStation Network

If you need more on the newly added software for PlayStation platforms, PSLS's weekly PSN update is my source for The Download and you don't need to be a fanboy to visit. Steam

Defiance, Cities in Motion, Company of Heroes 2 Closed Beta, and more totally awesome stuff like Ms. Splosion Man are now available on Steam!

iOS/Android Pick of the Week: Cling!

Cling! is just plain cool. There's no getting around it. The art style and music remind me of a retro-HD-jetsons meets video game bits and blocks. It's hard to describe, but the other side of that, the easiest thing to describe, is the premise. Ever played with one of those Wacky Wall Crawler toys? Throwing one of those at the sliding glass door always felt like tempting fate. I either break the glass or I get to see something roll down it, which is cool.

Anyway, in Cling!, you control one of those as it navigates a whole bunch of well-designed levels. Put your finger somewhere and that's where Edgar... well, clings. Let go and he lets go. I wasn't sure how this premise would play out, but the the gameplay isn't light and fun, and I really like the aesthetics. There's a shop full of gameplay extenders and upgrades and plenty of content for 99 cents. This one will be hard to put down.
