The things that make Dead Cells great are numerous. The fast, fluid movement. The weighty, satisfying combat. The fact that its developer, Motion Twin, is a worker co-op where everyone has equal pay and say over the company.

BGS 2018: A chat with Traveller’s Tales’ Super-Villain, er… Senior Producer Matthew Ellison

To Traveller’s Tales’ senior producer Matthew Ellison, the most important aspect to the LEGO games is their accessibility and how creatively they make use of their licenses.

BGS 2018: Dreams shows an incredible amount of creative potential

What Dreams lacked in showing of its creation suite it more than made up by the sheer amount of variety with the custom games that I played in the demo that was on display at the BGS Sony show floor.

BGS 2018: Pokémon Let’s Go feels great to play thanks to the pokéball accessory

There’s no bigger franchise in the world than Pokémon. The evergoing phenomenon is showing no sign of slowing down, and has been trucking along for just about twenty years.

BGS 2018: If you loved these games in the past, Spyro Reignited Trilogy will burn bright with nostalgia

When the original PlayStation hit, I was all about the Nintendo 64, so unlike a lot of folks who grew up in the 1990s, my fondest platforming memories lie with the Super Nintendo and Nintendo 64, namely the Super Mario games. Still, I would be lying if I told you I never dabbled with those… Continue reading BGS 2018: If you loved these games in the past, Spyro Reignited Trilogy will burn bright with nostalgia

Overcooked 2 heads to the beach with its Surf ‘n’ Turf DLC

After finishing Overcooked 2 proper, I didn't think it could get any more ridiculous. In retrospect, I should have known better, as the Surf 'n' Turf DLC that came out last week effortlessly demonstrates Overcooked 2 still has plenty of ideas left in store. Surf 'n' Turf adds 12 new levels and three new chefs… Continue reading Overcooked 2 heads to the beach with its Surf ‘n’ Turf DLC

BGS 2018: As the crow flies straight, so will Days Gone in 2019

Days Gone has been a hard game to pin down as something that I’m dying to play ever since its announcement a couple of E3s back. It has always felt way too similar to The Last of Us in terms of setting, as both deal with some sort of zombie apocalypse or another, and gameplay,… Continue reading BGS 2018: As the crow flies straight, so will Days Gone in 2019

Now under the Activision banner, director Hidetaka Miyazaki is at it again, this time taking us for a ride in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

BGS 2018: Kingdom Come: Deliverance’s Amorous Adventure DLC brings comedy to Bohemia

Kingdom Come: Deliverance seems to have become one of my traditional stops whenever I’m in a trade show nowadays. I’ve seen it way before it was out at E3, a second time when it was just about ready to be released, and now, for a third, in my hometown of São Paulo during Brazil Game… Continue reading BGS 2018: Kingdom Come: Deliverance’s Amorous Adventure DLC brings comedy to Bohemia
