Get a Grip!

April 6, 2016 0

Occasionally, I find myself excited about a game that I typically wouldn’t like, or one that I don’t need. When I first previewed Grip, it caught me off-guard. But, based on what I saw, I decided to give it a shot. Now that I’ve had a couple days to blast […]

Early Access with The Solus Project

March 22, 2016 0

Updated: March 25 I spent some time with The Solus Project this week. Actually, if I’m honest, it was a good deal more time than I had expected to spend on it—and that is entirely a good thing. I’m not a fan of the ever-growing survival genre. For me, most […]

Going Solo in The Solus Project

March 17, 2016 1

The Solus Project, developed by Teotl Studios, looks both intriguing and immersive. Teotl calls it “a singleplayer survival and exploration experience.” While accurate, I’m not convinced that description does this game justice. The background, or universe, of this title is the same as another game from Teotl called The Ball. […]

Dead Effect 2, Zombies in Space

February 17, 2016 0

Up until today, I’d never heard of BadFly Interactive. Now that I have, I’m surprised that they didn’t pop up on my radar long ago. The studio’s first entry into the market was Dead Effect, an FPS that currently rates as “Mostly Positive” on Steam. On February 22nd, BadFly’s second […]

The Glory of Combat Racing is Back in Grip

February 2, 2016 0

Where have all the racing titles gone? With the exception of Forza and Gran Turismo, the racing genre has been relatively quiet for what seems like, or feels like, too long. Perhaps it’s merely been drowned out by other genres and the sea of headlining games they have brought into […]

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 […]

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 […]

In Squad, Cooperate or Die

December 15, 2015 0

Most shooters with multiplayer capability do not place much emphasis on playing as a team. Sure, they may have game or map types meant to reinforce the importance of working together. They probably also give extra points in matches for accomplishing certain team-based feats like assisting in a kill, repairing […]

December 11, 2015 0

The last few years have seen a plethora of survival games, some better or more successful than others. ARK: Survival Evolved is definitely in the more successful category, having burst onto Steam with fantastic sales and positive reviews while still in the Early Access stage. The developer, Studio Wildcard, has […]
