That's right, not only can you play the game without having a ship strapped to your controller, the digital versions of Starlink come with more ships, pilots, and guns than the physical versions do at a lower overall price. You can watch our review of Starlink below, and see a [...]

Starlink: Battle for Atlas feels like it's trying to crash a party that's already packed up and moved on. Toys-to-life games like Disney Infinity, Skylanders, and LEGO Dimensions all dominated the toy sections three years ago, but that time has come and gone. That's not to say that Starlink: Battle for Atlas isn't good, because it's a surprisingly rich and ambitious exploration and combat-focused, story-driven experience. But the “toys” part comes off as a little unnecessary, especially when Starlink rewards digital players more than physical ones. Starlink: is a story of space exploration with a ragtag crew of characters who all [...]

With the recent cancellation of Marvel's Iron Fist, one of Netflix's original programs designed to lead into a Defenders crossover, fans have been wondering whether all the Marvel Netflix shows will eventually go away. Disney is launching its own streaming service, so the theory has been that the house of mouse pushed for cancellation to bring the series home and the same fate is inevitable for the rest. Not so, says Netflix, at least until they decide to lower the axe themselves. When Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos was asked about the future of the superheroes currently tied to Netflix [...]

Square Enix debuted nine new Kingdom Hearts 3 screenshots, and three character renders, highlighting the returning cast from Kingdom Hearts 2's Twilight Town.

With Telltale having closed and laid off its staff, The Walking Dead's incomplete final season hangs over a lot of the news for fans of the series. While Skybound confirmed they would be finishing the story out, the question of how exactly they would bring in the terminated Telltale staff to fix it was still important, and reminds people of the human cost behind their favorite games. It did not take long for this subject to come up when Skybound CEO Ian Howe held an Ask Me Anything session on Reddit yesterday. While he did not go into specific detail about [...]

When Accounting launched a few years ago, the employment-comedy virtual reality genre was still pretty nascent though large enough to have spawned a number of differently themed games already. The PlayStation VR got its hands on Accounting in 2016 and its DLC, Accounting+, the following year. Now Accounting+ is available on Oculus and Vive stores. Part of that means that the William Pugh- and Justin Roiland-written game gets its own launch trailer with precisely those two people, which you can watch below if you need a laugh today. Accounting+ is now available on Oculus, Vive, and PlayStation VR. [...]
