• There’s no new music, just old tunes – already written into our souls – that we rediscover when we hear them.

    So I’m listening to this (you can stop after the first 30 seconds if it’s not floating your […]

  • The Swindle has a pretty solid central idea. One hundred days to pull off a big heist. Each day is a life as you attempt to pull off smaller heists to get the money and equipment you need for that final big score. […]

  • Gunpoint by Tom Francis was a clever 2D stealth game that had a unique stop-start rhythm, and a clever central idea: pause the game and hack stuff to progress without killing anyone. It was of course more complex […]

  • There are things I could (and will) critisize about Deception IV, but one of them won’t be paucity of content. Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess is an updated version of Deception IV: Blood Ties. As such it […]

  • Here’s the 35 most exciting trailers at E3. And we put them all on one page, because we’re not awful.

    ThumbnailWhile 2015 might be an incredibly diverse year for games, there’s one place area where games are getting MORE alike. The homogenization of game controls is a strange thing, but over time, we’ve come to accept that […]

  • ThumbnailAs genre mashups go, stealth and turn based strategy don’t seem like the most obvious candidates to be smooshed together. Stealth is defined by the tense, breathless moments when a guard walks by while you skulk […]

  • ThumbnailIt’s impossible to see Shovel Knight in action and not think of the classic NES platformers that shaped our hobby. There’s an authenticity in the game that’s absent in the pixelated 2D platformers you see flooding […]

  • Why are so many games developers poor?

    Skyrim mods are so great!

    Now they want my cash?
    They won’t get a single penny from me

  • ThumbnailI’ve played Bloodborne quite a lot. In fact I’ve played Bloodborne so much that real life is some crazy parallel universe I’d almost forgotten. A “Gamers Dream”.

    Awakening bleary eyed and confused in a world I […]

  • ThumbnailDespite being a perfect platform for shoot em ups, the Vita doesn’t have a great number of them. With a decent d-pad and the horsepower to push some great 2D visuals, it would be the perfect device to fly a space […]

  • ThumbnailTex Murphy’s reemergence will seem familiar to anyone that’s had their favorite franchise reappear in 2015. Chris Jones and Aaron Conners made numerous attempts to revive the Tex Murphy series, but it wasn’t until […]

  • ThumbnailGravity Ghost is a charming thing. No matter what criticisms I may level at the gameplay (and I have a few), I can’t deny that it makes a good first impression. A triple gut punch of great art, great music and […]

  • ThumbnailWith a superficially simple look and premise but deceptive depth, Flame Over falls broadly in line with the other releases we’ve seen so far from Laughing Jackal. It’s a bright, cheery game with a seriously […]

    It is always exciting to try what could be a great new fighting series. Especially when that title is developed by French Bread, developers of the respected but […]

  • ThumbnailMushroom wine. That’s an intriguing combination of two words. A weird concept, it’s representative of a world that’s like ours, but very different. Sailors still drink wine, but through necessity that wine is made […]

  • ThumbnailCriminal Girls subject matter represents a peculiar maelstrom of potential outrage from numerous disparate communities. For one, its depiction of its cast of anime girls is overtly sexual. Shiny breasts and frilly […]
