xenoblade-us-600x338

Good news for those who missed their first chance to experience what many are calling the best JRPG available for the Wii; used copies of Xenoblade are now available via GameStop. But here's the deal: they're charging $90 per copy.

Gods Will be Watching

Real talk: I would slaughter every soldier, engineer, doctor, and scientist on my team if it meant I had enough food to keep Marvin the Rottweiler alive in Deconstructeam's "Gods Will Be Watching," a one-screen adventure game full of moral quandaries and ethical pitfalls about a group of starving explorers stuck on a hostile planet.

Thankfully, it never came to that since I froze to death after less than a week. I'll get a chance to try again when Devolver Digital -- the publisher behind "Hotline Miami" and "Luftrausers" -- brings the indie point-and-click to PC and mobile next year.

Lilly Looking Through

There are two things that you always hear about point-and-click adventure games: either they're "dead," or they're experiencing an indie resurgence.

So, how will the upcoming "WWE 2K14" top last year's "WWE 2K13?" By celebrating the "Grandest Spectacle in all of (Sports) Entertainment", aka Wrestlemania. All 30 years of it.

arcade

It's something virtually all diehard gamers wish they had: an arcade cabinet of their very own, in the corner of the living room or elsewhere in the home.

Though most never bother to even explore the possibility, due to fears that such machines would cost an arm and a leg to procure, plus the upkeep would also be a headache. And what if you get bored of that one single game that too so much effort and money to purchase and maintain?

Such fears are not unfounded. But if you happen to be a resident of California, you might want to know about All You Can Arcade. They'll let you rent an arcade cabinet for just $75 a month.
