Carbon Games' wonderful blend of arcade-style shooting and real-time strategy AirMech has come to Steam and is currently in closed testing. The studio has details on how you can participate over here, but the short of it is that you'll need to "like" their Facebook or Google+ account for a key.

EarthBound localization dev chats about the old days on his new Kickstarter

Marcus Lindblom is a heck of a guy. Every time you think he's let loose everything there is to tell about taking Shigesato Itoi's Mother 2 and transforming it into EarthBound, he pulls out some new stories to shares. Right no...more

AirMech Arena starts its Xbox 360 beta next week

Oh, that's right -- Ubisoft and Carbon Games are bringing AirMech to Xbox 360 this year with AirMech Arena. The original browser-based release (which has since come to Steam) was good fun. It's real-time strategy, but instead...more

'90s real-time strategy game Z comes to Steam tomorrow

Some people have fond memories of The Bitmap Brothers' real-time strategy game Z. I do not. Never played it! It's returning to PC with "a faithful and thoroughly modern reworking" on Steam, set for release tomorrow. Sounds a ...more
