Namco publishing two indies: A Portal-like and a space shooter

If you're a big company like Bandai Namco, why not pick up near finished indie games for distribution? Low risk, but with a small chance at great reward. Deadcore is coming to PC, Mac, and Linux this summer. It looks a bit l...

Review: Strike Vector photo
Review: Strike Vector
by Josh Tolentino

Flying is great. Fighting while flying is pretty great, too, but for some reason, dogfighting in good ol' atmosphere hasn't caught on as quickly as dogfighting in space. Despite the resurgence of space games brought on by the rise of crowdfunding and indie development, "sky-shooters" outside the niche simulation market remain in somewhat short supply.

Strike Vector is the kind of game that aims to scratch that itch, and several more besides. Heck, the fact that it says "Brutal Aerial FPS" right on the figurative box is an apt descriptor for what developer Ragequit Corporation is attempting to do.

The only question is if they've enough thrust to send their little game soaring.

Review: World of Warplanes
by Chris Carter

Free-to-play is still a bad word these days with a lot of gamers. But it doesn't have to be. Titles like Path of Exile have shown that providing a model where most of the content is free, but the cosmetic upgrades are paid, can facilitate an environment that not only respects their players, but influences them to want to spend money.

Lying somewhere in-between is Wargaming, one of the biggest F2P publishers out right now. Their newest game, World of Warplanes, is mostly a great example of how to do free-to-play right -- it just needs to fix a few other things first.

Flight combat game Strike Vector coming in 2014

You have my attention, Strike Vector. This multiplayer-centric air combat game jumps between first- and third-person flying, all while offering some high intensity action. It looks absolutely insane, and after a successful s...

Review: Damage Inc.: Pacific Squadron WWII photo
Review: Damage Inc.: Pacific Squadron WWII
by Ian Bonds

In theory, flight simulation games offer fans of the genre accurate flight controls with a diverse array of those amazing aircrafts they love so much, with powerful dogfights and skill helping push along a narrative worthy of their time. Damage Inc.: Pacific Squadron WWII aims to do just this, while having players relive the "greatest aerial battles" of the second World War.

Sadly, just like anyone who plays this title, it has difficulty hitting the target.
