Among the many indie developers on the EGLX show floor is Oddbird Studio, an Oakville, Ontario-based studio founded by students from Sheridan College's Game Design program. Their claim to fame is with an award-winning arena fighter called Arrow Heads, in which you take control of bow and arrow-toting birds with a control scheme that's easy to use but quickly spirals to insanity.

Naughty Dog's Crash Bandicoot made a big comeback last Summer with the launch of the N. Sane Trilogy on PlayStation 4.

Nintendo launched The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild just over a year ago, and it didn't take long for modders to get the game running on PC with a Wii U emulator. This allowed players to run the game at higher resolutions and framerates, and it also opened the door to a flood of crazy mods with characters like Goku, Shrek, and Buzz Lightyear. The latest popular mod to surface borrows from Zelda spin-off Hyrule Warriors by adding Linkle as a playable character.

Based on the current rotation of Call of Duty developers, we know that this year's annual release will be developed by Treyarch, developer of the popular Black Ops games. After the lukewarm response to the sci-fi elements of the second two Black Ops titles, many fans were wondering if Treyarch would move on to something else.

We may have a partial answer to that, as a recent leak from GameStop's internal database shows listings for Black Ops 4 merchandise. Head inside for more details!

No matter what EA does in the future, fans will never forget the incredibly controversial launch of Star Wars Battlefront II. The company has been under fire ever since the game's initial launch. The controversy has sparked a huge conversation surrounding the ethics and legality of loot boxes. While some gamers see it as a form of gambling, the ESRB has officially stated they do not see it this way.

The controversy rages on in the community, and one fan wanted to express the ridiculous nature of loot boxes to EA in their new mod. Head inside to check it out.

It took nearly two years of delays, but South Park: The Fractured But Whole finally launched last October.

The popular Attack on Titan anime series received a video game adaptation courtesy of Koei Tecmo's Omega Force back in 2016.

Dontnod Entertainment's Life is Strange was a surprise hit in 2015, introducing over a million players to the wonders of Arcadia Bay. While Dontnod is hard at work on a sequel, developer Deck Nine has been fleshing out the events of the past in the prequel series Life is Strange: Before the Storm. While the bulk of the story from Before the Storm has already wrapped up, Deck Nine has one last experience left for players, aptly dubbed Farewell.

EA's Star Wars Battlefront II drew widespread backlash last year for its predatory "pay to win" implementation of in-game gambling, with the selling point multiplayer mode's progression system, high cost of unlocking popular franchise icons, and sparingly awarded rewards all revolving around loot-boxes and microtransactions. The controversy on Electronic Arts' hands grew so dire, to the point it attracted both media and government attention, that the publisher suspended in-game payments before the game's public launch.

Unfortunately, the possibility of Battlefront II's microtransactions returning since remained, and now it's official. Hit the jump for more information.

Who doesn't love a good boss fight? I know I do. I'm drawn to the grandeur of the battles. The epic soundtracks, the intricate character designs, the combination of strategy and execution—there's nothing quite like these challenges. Perhaps that's why boss rush-style games like Cuphead or Furi have become so popular in recent years. As a fan of the genre, I recently sat down with a Steam Early Access game entitled Ragtag Adventurers to see if it holds up.

Are these adventurers going on a fruitful quest, or will their journey be for naught? Read our review to find out!

When it comes to tight, difficult platformers, Super Meat Boy may be the most prominent example, but there are others just as worthy of the descriptor. One such game is Celeste, a full-fledged adventure from Matt Thorson (of Towerfall fame) and Noel Berry. You may be familiar with an earlier PICO-8 game of the same name, also by Thorson and Berry, and it is this version that serves as the foundation on which Celeste is built.

Come journey with me up a mountain as I discuss why Celeste is one of the best platformers I've played in years.

Destiny 2 launched last fall to near-unanimous praise from critics, several accolades, and high anticipation from fans of the original 2014 game, but several incidents have plagued Activision and Bungie's latest project since its release. With the game's fanbase revolting against the Eververse store and Bright Engram loot-boxes, it's hard to argue against the notion that Destiny 2 is pushing hard for uncapped monetization schemes first and player enjoyment second.

With several controversies already under the Destiny sequel's belt, Wall Street analyst Doug Creutz penned a report citing that the game is "not in a good place." Read on after the jump for more details.
