Pillars of Eternity, beaten in less than 40 minutes


Speedrun
Apr 15
Conrad lost a lot of his life to Pillars of Eternity when he reviewed it. Clearly the poor sap was playing it wrong because Jiseed beat the damn thing in less time than it takes to watch the newest watercooler TV episode. Sk...

Magicka: Wizard Wars releasing April 28, gets 80's power ballad


Not Magicka 2
Apr 09
I think calling a trailer, which is a kind of montage, a montage trailer kind of does disservice to the idea of a montage, as we typically expect it edited into a more traditionally continuous work, but fine. The ballad is f...

Paradox makes the best trailers

Magicka 2 continues to outperform most games when it comes to trailers. And believe me, I know something about funny videogame video content. It's also quite fun. I had a chance to play Magicka 2 on PS4 l...

Get tready to learn about Hearts of Iron IV's tanks


3, 2, 1...let's jam!
Nov 20
I like it when a company modifies their logo to fit with the theme of whatever it's attached to. It's a stupid thing to like and here it's just an old timey World War II filter, but I like it nonetheless (see: SEGA matching ...

Magicka 2 trailer

Free Magicka 2 if you can do a better karaoke video than a dracula


PC, PS4, cute dog
Sep 12
Magicka 2 is upping the intentional weirdness in its trailers with Vlad the dracula singing karaoke, 90's internet aesthetics, and close ups of a cute dog. Not a bad look. There's also this website, which looks like a Geocities page and encourages you to download the track and lyrics and film your own karaoke music video for a chance to win a copy of Magicka 2 when it releases.

Hearts of Iron IV trailer

Hearts of Iron IV wants you to rewrite World War II


Or try to make it happen exactly as it did!
Aug 11
Why do you have to be at gamescom to make a gamescom trailer? This (a very little bit of) gameplay trailer for Hearts of Iron IV asks that. I think we should all shoot our own gamescom trailers, too. Upload 'em and put them in the comments.  If you want beta details, they're here. Otherwise, see an early Hearts of Iron IV preview from the beginning of the year.

Expect to see more historical strategy games
Apr 30
I don't have it in me to become invested enough in grand strategy titles to enjoy playing them, but I always had a soft spot for Fraser Brown's Paradox reviews. This is a genre made possible by a passionate player base and t...
