Celeste Mountain: Risk the Climb

“This is it, Madeline. Just breathe. Why are you so nervous?” These are the words that greet you when you start up Celeste, a narrative-driven single player precision platformer developed and published by Matt Makes Games. You would be wise to keep these words safeguarded in your mind as you make your climb up the game’s namesake mountain as Madeline; a young woman that suffers from panic at...

China To Lift Ban On Video Game Consoles

More from than wonderful Epic Games Mark Rein interview, where he’s been lofting anti-core quotes high into the air in such a way that they glide gently back to earth like falling snow. Truly, for such a slow news day it sure feels like a glorious Christmas in July to me right now: “Over half the users who played Gears of War 2 so far do not have HDTVs.” That popping sound you he...
