Plague Tale, Cuphead, and more will be at Tribeca Fest 2022

This year’s Tribeca Fest will once again feature video games as official selections. The 2022 lineup features nine games in total, including some heavy hitters like A Plague Tale: Requiem and Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course.

Tribeca Fest, traditionally known as a film festival, began including games as official selections last summer. Kena: Bridge of Spirits, Sable, and more were featured at the 2021 show with playable demos. This year’s standout Norco was selected as the winner among the crop.

This year’s show features some bigger releases by comparison. Most notably, A Plague Tale: Requiem will be be present at the show. The AA game has been a tentpole of Microsoft’s recent showcases, including its E3 2022 event (though it’ll be available on all platforms). Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course is a surprise too, as its a DLC package rather than a full release.

Other noteworthy games include Oxenfree II: Lost Signals, Her Story creator Sam Barlow’s new game Immortality, and Thirsty Suitors, one of publisher Annapurna Interactive’s upcoming indies. The list also includes one previously unannounced game: American Arcadia, a new title from the team behind Call of the Sea.

Here’s the full list of selections.

  • American Arcadia — Out of the Blue
  • As Dusk Falls — INTERIOR/NIGHT
  • The Cub — Demagog Studio
  • Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course — Studio MDHR
  • Immortality — Half Mermaid
  • Oxenfree II: Lost Signals — Night School Studio
  • A Plague Tale: Requiem — Asobo Studio
  • Thirsty Suitors — Outerloop Games
  • Venba — Visai Games

While the Tribeca Fest will feature an in-person component where attendees can play the games, it’ll also offer a digital experience with demos available via Parsec. Tribeca Fest will also host another showcase giving details on each game as part of this year’s Summer Game Fest.

This year’s Tribeca Fest begins on June 8 and runs until June 19.

Few video game consoles stirred up as much buzz as the Nintendo Wii. Before motion-tracking software was considered standard fare and shovelware began popping up left and right to take advantage, Nintendo looked to revolutionize the gaming landscape with the Wii.

The Wiimote and Nunchuck control system gave gamers a new way to game and opened the door for a new generation of interactive gaming. From brand-new motion-based party games like Wii Sports and Just Dance to groundbreaking installments to classic Nintendo series like The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and the Super Mario Galaxy, the Wii quickly became home to a stellar lineup of games for all ages.

Pikmin 4 release date

When compared to Super Mario, The Legend of Zelda, and even Metroid, the Pikmin series was never a runaway success, but that hasn't stopped Nintendo from developing new installments. And we're glad, because the Pikmin series is full of wit, charm, and originality. During the September 2022 Direct, Nintendo finally unveiled the next entry, aptly titled Pikmin 4.

This announcement came nearly a decade after the previous entry, and although we don't know much about it, we're excited it's happening. The latest installment of the oddball strategy series is bringing some new features, including a brand new Pikmin type and an adorable dog companion. Positioned as the Switch's big summer 2023 release, it has the chance to get more eyes on the series than ever before.

It’s time for the age of always-online single-player games to end

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is one of the most anticipated PlayStation 5 games of the year, as it promises that DC Comics fans will get to see their favorite antiheroes wreak havoc in the Batman Arkhamverse. The co-op action game features a storyline straight out of Marvel's What If...? with most members of the Justice League getting brainwashed by Brainiac. And it has the distinction of featuring Kevin Conroy's final voice performance as the Dark Knight. On paper, it has a lot going for it.

There's just one problem, though. You can only play it online, even when you're going solo.
