The Bard's Tale was originally released on Microsoft's first Xbox console, and it was a sort of a side-make of the original point-and-click RPG adventure game from the 80s (which itself is represented on the App Store by an app called Silversword, if you'd rather go even more old school than this ...

We've known since June that Konami was prepping a landing space for Choplifter HD on XBLA, PSN and PC, but it seems the convoy won't be here for some time.

Being a giant, beloved video game site has its downsides. For example, we sometimes neglect to give independent developers our coverage love (or loverage, if you will) as we get caught up in AAA, AAAA or the rare quintuple-A titles. To remedy that, we're giving indies the chance to create their own ...

Choplifter HD, which is more than a basic HD-ification of the classic '80s game, will also be available on Xbox Live Arcade -- the game was previously announced only for PSN and PC. Destructoid has a video showing off lots of gameplay, the zombie mode and a totally random appearance by Super Meat...

Your first hour in the desperately dark world of Hunted: The Demon's Forge is not going to be a pleasant one. The preface-free introduction doesn't exactly instill a sense of literary excellence. The characters presented could generously be described as "grating." Combat is limited to a fairly un...

While the latest Hunted: The Demon's Forge behind-the-scenes video is sadly devoid of Lucy Lawless, it is positively packed to the gills with the game's monstrous baddies. From the brutish minotaur to the svelte assassin, there should be plenty to keep players hacking and slashing....

The latest behind-the-scenes video for Hunted: The Demon's Forge examines the game's rich story. The developers at inXile looked to the ancient Mayans for inspiration. Long ago, those proud people ... wait, where are you going? Okay, okay, it also has Lucy Lawless. Happy now?...

In this behind the scenes look at Hunted: The Demon's Forge, inXile hammers out the basics of its "modern, co-op, cover-based action game" -- you know, where you're "running through dungeons and killing monsters with really cool swords" and "amazing spells" and stuff....

Hunted: The Demon's Forge was plagued by a number of issues, both technical and fundamental, when Joystiq last saw it two months ago. At Bethesda's recent "BFG 2011" media event, developer inXile Entertainment brought a markedly improved build, if not a less generic game title. "Feedback has b...

If the idea of putting together burgers in HD wasn't weird enough for you, how about revisiting your old airlifting days on the Apple II via PSN? InXile Entertainment plans on doing just that with Choplifter HD, a project that will supposedly "redefine the helicopter rescue mission for the modern...

Hunted: The Demon's Forge has a major problem. It's a Gears of War clone, but it also wants to be a deep, character-driven RPG. The issue is that it far too often relies on the gameplay mechanics of the former and doesn't offer the exploration elements of the latter. During a recent San Franci...

Bethesda has always made it clear that it wants gamers to associate Hunted: The Demon's Forge with action games like Gears of War. Watching the latest trailer, we'd say "mission accomplished." Honestly, the only thing missing at this point are chainsaws, curb stomps and a dead Carmine brother....

Clicked: The Full-sized Gallery Bethesda's undoubtedly one of the best developers in the industry; however, as a publisher, it's had its fair share of ups and down. Last year's Wet and Rogue Warrior illustrate both extremes quite well. Earlier this year at GDC, when Bethesda unveiled the clumsily ...
