Okay, not literally all. But PS4, Vita, Xbox One, and Wii U, following the initial Steam (PC/Mac/Linux) release. Action game savants may want to take particular note. Aztez looks great. It's a weird mix of conquest-focused strategy game that has you expand the Aztec empire and "hardcore" combat.

"We’ve piped in the feel and creativity of Bayonetta, the sensationalism and mobility of Capcom’s Alien Vs Predator, and the precision difficulty of classic Devil May Cry," artist and combat designer Ben Ruiz explains, setting expectations high.  "As the combat designer, I’ve been studying these types of games for years, and I refuse to produce and hand you something that won’t dangerously raise your heart rate and dopamine levels. I grew up in the arcade, and I want to do for you what the amazing developers of yore did for me with their coin-ops."

You'll have multiple weapons you can switch between (during combos as well) and there is a system in place to reward players, "for A. being aggressive and successfully stringing together combos, B. not getting struck, C. not waiting too long to initiate more aggression, and D. not whiffing."

Sounds good. Looks good. Like Patapon x Madworld.

Conflicks has a great alternate history setup with anachronistic space colonialism

Did you know that Leonardo da Vinci discovered MetaMatter? Well, not in real life, but in the universe of Conflicks he did. It turns out all it takes is to separate a chicken egg's yolk from its albumen, and to heat up the y...more

I'm afraid not enough people will play Hohokum

Hohokum isn't an easily described game. It's one of those cases where it's not until you try it for yourself that you fully grasp the appeal, which can be a tough sell. Yeah, the whimsical art direction is terrific, but the ...more

Review: Sokobond

Chemistry is governed by a definite set of rules. Opposite charges attract, like dissolves like, matter is always conserved. There are more rules than just those, but one of the great things about the study of matter and its ...more
