Superhot, a New Time-warping FPS

February 1, 2016 1

This is a great time to be a gamer. Each year sees another amazing line-up, each one better than the last (usually). There are so many games now, it is virtually impossible to play them all. With such a vast array of titles out there, one thing that is still […]

Conan Exiles

January 29, 2016 0

Funcom, the developer of Age of Conan (which is still up and running these days), has announced their next Conan title: Conan Exiles. As Funcom says, its yet another “open-world survival game,” this time set “in the brutal lands of Conan the Barbarian.” By now, most of our readers should […]

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

January 27, 2016 0

Nathan Drake and the Uncharted series are a lot like Harrison Ford and the Indiana Jones films. Treasure hunters by trade, but adventure seekers at heart, they have both travelled the world looking for relics and antiquities, placing themselves and their companions in harm’s way repeatedly. I’m writing about this […]

Sail to War in Naval Action

January 26, 2016 0

Did you enjoy the ship-to-ship combat in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag? I know I did. What about the glorious naval battles in the last few iterations of the Total War series? For me, those were some of the toughest but most enjoyable parts of my campaigns to rule the […]

Necropolis, a Procedurally Generated RPG

January 25, 2016 0

There’s a strange expression for ideas that are ridiculous or reckless, they’re called: harebrained schemes. Making a dungeon-crawling RPG using a shape-oriented artistic style with bright colors and playful humor, but asking players to take it seriously, would seem just that: harebrained. Necropolis, from developer Harebrained Schemes, sure does sound […]

Door Kickers 2, a Top-down Tactical Shooter

January 22, 2016 0

I’ve written before about the promise of indie studios and their ability to provide a high-quality, unique product and to take risks that larger studios often won’t. However, with smaller budgets and smaller teams, it’s also much easier for them to fail. Fortunately, KillHouseGames does not fit into that category […]

Sea of Thieves

January 18, 2016 0

The world has always been fascinated by pirates, especially over the last few years. Ever since Johnny Depp adorned himself with a pile of eye shadow and the intoxicated swagger of an 18th century Keith Richards as the swashbuckling Captain Jack Sparrow, the world has been borderline-obsessed with pirates. Renowned […]

XCOM 2, Hard to the Core

January 15, 2016 0

Respawning is a device that’s normal, expected. It’s what makes so many video games playable, re-playable, accessible and fun. However, it can also serve to cheaper a game, to dull the gravity of the situation at hand or the story being told. Firaxis Games and their XCOM series, do not […]

We are the Dwarves, a New Indie RPG

January 13, 2016 0

Whale Rock Games is a tiny indie studio from Ukraine working on their first project: We are the Dwarves. The Kickstarter failed but the Steam Greenlight succeeded. This promising new indie game will be released soon, so I thought it was time to talk about it. We are the Dwarves […]

For blood, for glory, For Honor

January 12, 2016 0

Have you ever wondered who’d win between a knight, a samurai and a Viking? I think most of us have discussed it at some point, especially if you’re into history and fantasy lore like I am. Ubisoft wants to give gamers the opportunity to settle those arguments once and for […]

Quantum Break, Beautiful and Bewildering

January 10, 2016 1

From the creators of Max Payne and Alan Wake comes a third person, Xbox exclusive shooter (at least for now) about time travel, coupled with a TV show. Quantum Break is many things, the two most prominent of which are: ambitious and perplexing. Oh, and delayed. To be perfectly frank, […]

ADR1FT, a Perilous VR Space Adventure

January 8, 2016 0

If you’ve seen Gravity before, you may have had nightmares about it (I know I did). Some of us, who are gluttons for punishment, have wondered what it would be like to experience the hardship Sandra Bullock’s character went through. On March 28th this year, ADR1FT will give players a […]

Homefront: The Revolution Release Date Leaked?

January 6, 2016 0

Since it appears that the release date for Deep Silver’s upcoming Homefront: The Revolution has been accidentally leaked by Target Inc., it seemed time to officially preview the game. Philadelphia, birthplace of the Continental Congress and nerve center of the American Revolution, has been occupied by Korean forces. It’s not […]

Crackdown 3, the Cloud Cometh

January 5, 2016 0

Police. Cyborgs. Justice. Destruction. Cyberpunk. What comes to mind when you read those five words? Judge Dredd? Not a bad guess, but that’s incorrect. The love-child of GTA, Just Cause and Satellite Reign? Still not exactly right, but not far off either. If you said “Crackdown 3,” you nailed it. […]

Doom, a Blast From the Past

January 4, 2016 0

Doom is back! After more than ten years since its last entry, one of the games responsible for popularizing first-person shooters is being reincarnated. If you thought it was Gears of War that pioneered the use of the chainsaw, think again. id Software had been working on Doom 4 since […]
