‘Death Hall’ from the Maker of ‘Wave Wave’ Gets a Great New Trailer and is Launching Next Month

This past January we got the announcement and some screen shots of the new project called Death Hall from developer Tom Janson, who you may remember as the creator of the awesome cave flyer acid trip Wave Wave ($2.99). Death Hall is an action platformer where your goal is to run and jump through hazardous environments while also outrunning a gigantic red blob of death with razor sharp teeth. It looked really cool but it was a bit hard to glean exactly what Death Hall was like from those initial screens alone, so about a month ago Janson released a teaser trailer which made the gameplay a little more clear, but was still a little on the short side. Well, with development approaching the finish line, we now have an official release trailer for Death Hall which is lengthier and shows off a lot of the mechanics and the different enemies and environments you’ll encounter, check it out.

This latest trailer has me the most excited yet as you can see there’s a bit of lore behind the game as to why you’re doing what you’re doing and I like seeing …read more


Top 10 Best-Selling Video Games of All Time

Games have always existed in a numbers-obsessed industry. Sega vs. Nintendo defined a generation in the ’90s, while today’s more mild console wars and monthly NPD reports keep sales figures at the forefront of games-related discussion. With such a persistent emphasis on performance, one of the industry’s biggest questions has always been, What are the best-selling video games of all time?

To answer this question, we set out to compile the most accurate list possible, digging through financial reports, news stories, interviews, and more. The result is the following list of the ten best-selling video games of all time, as of March 2019.

(Notes: We’ve counted pack-in games toward sales totals, considering all ten games on this list were, at one point, bundled with a console. Free downloads are not counted as sales, therefore excluding games like Fortnite and League of Legends.)

Every IGN Mortal Kombat Review

Mortal Kombat has been gruesomely dismembering fighters since 1992 – four years before IGN was around. With the impending launch of Mortal Kombat 11 (which, shockingly, is not actually the 11th Mortal Kombat game) we’re looking back over all 30 reviews IGN has published. Interestingly, the series contains such a wide range of games that it’s one of the few that’s earned almost every score in the book, except the very highest and lowest available.

Which MK games stand out to you as the best and worst?

Dan Stapleton is IGN’s Reviews Editor. You can follow him on Twitter to hear gaming rants and lots of random old-school Simpsons references.
