The Darkest Dungeon gods were kind to me

Hot off its huge Kickstarter success, Darkest Dungeon is already in a playable-enough state to have a demo at PAX East 2014. Although the demo was only a short snippet of what's to come, it was easy to get a sense of the them...

Aaru's Awakening is all about movement

I’ve been interested in Aaru’s Awakening ever since its announcement captivated me with its hand-drawn art style. It’s pretty hard to pass up playing a game that looks the way Aaru’s Awakening does. Fr...

Defense Grid 2 will welcome user-created content

Hidden Path Entertainment sure does know how to make some good videogames. Defense Grid and its expansion are a blast for any tower defense fan, but they've also done Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Age of Empires I...

I hacked a bush in Double Fine's Hack N Slash

With a name like Hack N Slash, it’s easy to assume exactly what’s in the package and dismiss it. Then people hear it’s from Double Fine and expectations immediately change for the better, as they should. Hac...

Gods Will Be Watching stressed me the hell out

I have found myself both playing and looking forward to more and more “point-and-click” games in the past few years than ever before. I didn’t grow up with games like Day of the Tentacle or the Monkey Island...

Review: Mercenary Kings

Mercenary Kings is a Kickstarter success story that has finally made its way into the consumer’s hands. Combining elements from games like Monster Hunter and Metal Slug, Kings attempts to capture player’s hearts with its retro look and lighthearted feel. Also you can make a gun that is a cat and goes "mew!" when you fire it.

Tips and GIFs: Tower of Guns

Tower of Guns is a game of many secrets and intricacies, just as any good roguelike. Since I love to teach people things, I thought I'd lend a helping hand out to anyone who cares to look. Not just with text and those pl...

How the 'new' Diablo III brought me back in

I never thought I would actually say this, but I am enjoying myself while playing Diablo III. Keep in mind this is without Reaper of Souls, and is entirely about the newest patch -- Loot 2.0. After spending countless hours ...

Review: Blackguards

In many ways, I'm very glad that Final Fantasy: Tactics had such a big influence on my tastes. It's an incredibly well made game and put me on a path towards playing more games of its ilk like Phantom Brave or the m...

Frozen Endzone hits Steam Early Access, here's why it's awesome

Personally, I'm a huge fan of American Football (henceforth known as football, sorry EU). It also happens that I am a huge fan of Frozen Synapse. When it was announced by Mode 7 Games that they were combining the two, I ...

Review: TowerFall: Ascension

TowerFall originally came out on the OUYA. I’ve played it on that console, and it was certainly a blast, so long as you weren’t the one stuck with the OUYA controller. TowerFall: Ascension brings the good time t...

Review: Tower of Guns

As a combination of the first-person shooter genre and the modern-day roguelikes, Tower of Guns is being pushed as a “lunchbreak FPS.” After playing, I can say this is a pretty accurate description, except I only ...

Review: Double Dragon: Neon

Beat-’em-ups are quite the strange genre to me. I grew playing many of them: Simpsons, X-Men, and Turtles in Time in the arcades were my jam. In fact, I’d say they are still my jam. That said, it’s easy to r...

Review: The Castle Doctrine

My life's earnings are stashed away in my vault. Well, half of it. As an added security measure, I've given my wife half to hold on to and protect with her life. I've built my house in such a way that I feel pretty confiden...
