Raskulls finally gets a gameplay video, we jump on its bones


Jun 12
I think I finally figured out why Raskulls is so appealing me. The name, look and characters remind me of one of those affordable, miniature, collectible toy lines from the nineties. Monster in my Pocket, Mini Boglins, Bad Eg... read

[video]105137:427[/video]  As you might have been able to tell, there are certain games that I take on as pet causes, giving them coverage that may go above and beyond my usual duties. Most of them look like rubbish to n... read

Sacred 2: RPG + German Fantasy Metal = Something?


Sep 25
[video]105137:427[/video] This trailer for Sacred 2 is the most amazingly epic thing I've seen all day, and also the most tragic. It's not every day that you get to see an in-game music video for a German "Fantasy Metal&... read

RetroforceGO! Episode 35: Anything but the Super Bowl


Feb 04
Seriously, why do they capitalize the word Super Bowl? I mean, if it's going to be a psuedo national holiday, then I at least want the following Monday off from work. And by the following Monday, I mean right now: today. Oh w... read

New Kingdom Under Fire to be an MMO

New Golden Axe = Lair? Lack of playable dwarf = FAIL, at any rate


Nov 27
As far as I'm concerned, it's hard to go wrong with a Golden Axe remake. Just give me a dwarf and a shedload of skeletons to fight and I'm happy. Of course, this is the games industry, and nobody ever does the right thing whe... read

Ninjatown DS trailer somehow makes cute ninjas okay


Aug 21
It is a universal fact that ninjas should not be cute. It really kills the credibility of being a ruthless killing machine if women are cooing over you. However, figure in a DS title populated by Shawnimals, and somehow the w... read

Rise of the Argonauts wants a revolution: Needs more stop-motion skeletons


Aug 02
