Dying Light is surprisingly fun, and pretty damn intense

Spencer Hayes and I got some quality time with Techland's Dying Light and we both came away pretty surprised from the experience. The game features a day and night cycle, and the day time stuff we played was pretty average. ...

Tales from the Crypt (of the NecroDancer)

We named Crypt of the NecroDancer one of our PAX Prime 2013 games of the show, despite its location in the eternally cramped and sweaty Indie Megabooth, and for good reason. Roguelikes may be in vogue right now, but none unt...

I want to marathon Max: The Curse of Brotherhood

I've heard a fair bit about Max: The Curse of Brotherhood this year. This spiritual successor to Max and the Magic Marker sounded great, but it somehow was just off my radar, lost in the shuffle among the new games and consol...

Dying leads to better things in Super Time Force

Super Time Force, in the state that it's being shown at PAX Prime, is a product that has been refined and shaped by player feedback along all steps of the development process. Capybara Games first showed the game at PAX East...

Galak-Z explores the nooks and crannies of space

"It's the perfect game for fans of 80's anime," 17-Bit's Raj Joshi told me about Galak-Z before I was given a chance to play it. Admittedly, it seemed like a weird statement at the time. At first glance, the Asteroids-esque ...

The offensive leads to the defensive in Toy Rush

One of the cutest-looking games that I saw at PAX Prime was Uber Entertainment's Toy Rush. Don't let the cuteness deceive you, though. Toy Rush is shaping up to be a surprisingly deep and fun title.  The developers...

Shantae and the Pirate's Curse puts the rest to shame

Tucked away in a corner below The Wind Waker HD and behind Pokemon X/Y at PAX is a small kiosk featuring Retro City Rampage and Shantae and the Pirate's Curse, both on the 3DS. Stop by if you have the chance. The games are bo...

Betrayer is really confusing, but in a good way

I played Betrayer today, and I have no idea what it's about. Not because of any sort of inattentiveness on my part, but because the ex-Monolith developers don't want me to know what it's about. That's kind of the intrig...

Lords of the Fallen keeps looking better and better

Lords of the Fallen looked good at E3; it looks even better at PAX Prime. After another hands-off demo, the next-generation action role-playing game really seems to be coming along nicely. Admirably, it seeks to improve,...

I liked Knife of Dunwall more than Dishonored

Shortly after launch, Dishonored sprung some mini-DLC on us with the Trials of Dunwall challenge pack. But fans wanted so much more than that. They wanted full sandboxes, more story, and more of the world to explore...

The Swapper deserves your attention

PAX East had a ton of indie games on display this year, and while many of them looked great, only a handful stopped me dead in my tracks as I became mesmerized by what was happening on-screen. The Swapper was one such game, ...

Max: The Curse of Brotherhood is surprisingly violent

What was once a thriving area of small and unique downloadables titles has slowly become a void. It just seems Microsoft doesn't care to support what made Xbox Live Arcade so special in the first place. Max: The Curse of Br...

Beatbuddy brings the bass beat, buddy

Non-instrument rhythm games seem to be on the up and up these days. Runner 2 and HarmoKnight are two recent examples that really stepped up their game and did a perfect job of blending music and gameplay into one e...

Dejobaan's busy week meant launching three games

It was a busy PAX East week for Dejobaan Games; not only did they release Monster Loves You, co-developed with Radial Games, but they also released Drunken Robot Pornography and the spiritual successor to AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAa...

Windforge is an RPG mix of Terraria and steampunk

This weekend at PAX, I came across a booth with just a laptop sitting on a table, and this laptop was running an early build of Snowed In Studios' Windforge. It's an open-world role-playing game with an emphasis on ...

Sully: A Very Serious RPG is seriously silly

Sully: A Very Serious RPG was almost hidden on the PAX East show floor. It was in the same booth as Dragon Fantasy Book II and was easy to overlook if given just a quick glance. I'm glad that I gave it more than tha...
