Ashes of the Singularity Review

April 2, 2016 0

Release Date: March 31, 2016  Platforms: PC Review Platform: PC Games are constantly evolving. Every year the boundaries are pushed a little further, the bar raised a little higher. Occasionally, a game comes along that doesn’t just push the limits, it obliterates them. Ashes of the Singularity is that game. Taking inspiration and […]

Hands-on With the Battlefleet Gothic: Armada Beta

March 28, 2016 0

Back in December, when I first previewed Battlefleet Gothic, I was hesitant to get overly excited about the game. Games Workshop, the company who owns the Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000 IP’s, is notoriously bad at choosing game developers and I wasn’t convinced that Tindalos Interactive’s Battlefleet Gothic: Armada would buck […]

Total War: Warhammer

February 16, 2016 0

I have made no secret of how I feel about table-top giant Games Workshop’s poor choices in selecting developers to recreate the Warhammer 40, 000 and Warhammer IPs. With a few notable exceptions, the titles produced by these chosen studios were garage, a mockery of the of the universe they […]

XCOM 2 Review

February 8, 2016 0

I’ve played more of this game in the last two days than I (or my wife) would care to admit; one of the most challenging parts is hitting ALT+F4. It’s simultaneously one of the hardest games I’ve ever played, and one of the most enjoyable. As a disclaimer, I should […]

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 […]

Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak Review

January 19, 2016 0

These days, when an IP is old, tired or in need of revitalization, the preferred method by which to resurrect it is through making a prequel, or an origin story. Marvel and DC have used this idea repeatedly, and to great effect (mostly), as have many other franchises. This is exactly what […]

Ashes of the Singularity, a Groundbreaking RTS

December 18, 2015 0

Today, I’d like to talk about an upcoming game that hasn’t been getting much attention: Ashes of the Singularity, from Stardock and partner Oxide. Frankly, as an avid RTS fan, I am stunned this title isn’t getting more press. If Ashes successfully navigates the challenges of Early Access and beta […]

Homeworld is Back in Deserts of Kharak

December 17, 2015 0

Remember Homeworld? No? Me neither, it was 1999! What about Homeworld 2? Still not ringing a bell? Same here, it was 2003! The last two years, however, have seen some very exciting developments in this old franchise. As some may recall, THQ went bankrupt a few years ago and the […]

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, an Upcoming Space RTS

December 16, 2015 1

Oh, Games Workshop. What will you do next? Which one of your vast collection of IP’s will you decide to throw on the developer-roulette table next? Sometimes I imagine GW gathering as many potential developers into the same room as possible, all of them screaming, cheering and jockeying for position like […]
