Aztez is a black-and-white brawler for PC and consoles

Aztez proves that you don't need little things like color to make a cool-looking action game. Well, maybe that's not entirely true. You do need one color: red. Red, as in blood! Aztez certainly isn't short on red or blood. The appropriately-named Team Colorblind will bring its unique black-and-white (and red) blend of 2D beat 'em up and turn-based strategy to PS4 and Vita, as well as PC (with Oculus Rift support), Xbox One, and Wii U.

Zelda games have become too 'linear,' producer says

Zelda games have become too 'linear,' producer says

A Link Between Worlds may have been a sequel to a classic Zelda game, but it did a lot to change up long-held conventions in the series. In a new interview, series producer Eiji Aonuma hints that the Zelda series will continue to shake things up by going against "traditional" approaches.

"The recent Zelda games have been rather linear as I thought players didn't like getting lost, wondering what to do, or where to go," he said.
