Joystiq Streams: Mercenary Kings reign on PS4 with Tribute Games [Update: It's over!]

The all-encompassing brolation that was the Broforce Joystiq Streams on Tuesday did not satisfy our hunger for sweet two-dimensional action. Indeed it only made the crew more ravenous for big cartoon sprites and twitchy gunplay in the grand tradition of Contra and Metal Slug. Feeding the beast...

Joystiq Streams: Broforce brodown [UPDATE: Relive the stream!]

Hey! Where you going, Brosephine Baker? Got someplace better to be? Not when there's Broforce to play, you don't. Free Lives' shooter may look like a pile of pop culture references, pixel art, and 16-bit era run-and-gunning no different from legions of games put out by small developers over...

Joystiq Streams: Picking a fight with Kinect Sports Rivals [Update: Never mind!]

Joystiq's Jess Conditt did not much care for Kinect Sports Rivals. "The biggest challenge in gameplay is often hassling with the Kinect," chided Jess in her two-star review, "Overall, the games themselves are insultingly simple." Everything's worth a second look, though! In the interests of due...

Joystiq Streams Special: Things to do in Dark Souls 2 PC when you're dead [UPDATE: Relive the stream!]

If you're one of the intrepid souls who waited a few weeks to play Dark Souls 2 on PC, it appears you made the right call. As Joystiq's Xav de Matos discovered, the PC version of From Software's bruiser of a sequel is the best, markedly prettier than its Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 counterparts...

Joystiq Streams: Trials Fusion and the art of the face-plant [Relive the stream!]

Rage can be one of gaming's sweetest plums. Not the sort of rage where you flip out on a cheater in Titanfall or lose a particularly thorny League of Legends match. Sweet rage comes from classic challenge, when a game asks you to do something extra hard and you come oh-so-close to pulling it...

Joystiq Streams: Losing our minds in Ether One with White Paper Games [Relive the stream!]

"There are no dangerous thoughts," said Hannah Arendt, the philosopher who died writing The Life of the Mind, "Thinking itself is dangerous." Her words ring loudly while playing Ether One. The protagonist of White Paper Games' surreal adventure, called The Restorer, literally has to go into...

Joystiq Streams: A graveyard smash in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night [Relive the stream!]

True story: Joystiq Streams was going to broadcast Shovel Knight, the pixel-y, Metroidvania-y, Mega Man-y game coming to Wii U, PC, and Mac this spring, with Yacht Club Games today. Unfortunately those plans fell through at the last minute, leaving the Streams crew desperately thirsty for 2D...

Joystiq Streams Special: Infamous: Second Son, new powers, and you [It's over!]

Hello, young conduit! With Infamous: Second Son out now, you may be noticing some changes in your body. Hair may sprout from unexpected places, your voice may change, and you may suddenly find yourself draining the fluorescence out of neon lights and shooting it at masked aggressors. Joystiq...

Joystiq Streams: Teaming with Trendy in Dungeon Defenders 2 [Relive the stream!]

Dungeon Defenders was more than a peanut butter on chocolate blend. The Reese's analogy implies a meeting of just two flavors, whereas Trendy Entertainment's blend of tower defense and action role-playing benefited from a third, magical ingredient: cooperation. A gooey gaming smore is what it...

Joystiq Streams: Blindly marching into Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes [It's over!]

Snake! Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes is a sneaking mission, so while wandering around some crazy 1975 military base, try not to get caught. Maybe don't start casual conversations with guards or ask to bum a smoke either. Joystiq knows not to make these Metal Gear blunders, having dug into...
