Harebrained Schemes nails it once again with Necropolis

As I explored the opening area of Harebrained Schemes' third-person action roguelike Necropolis at PAX East 2015, I discovered an inviting treasure chest. Upon opening it, I realized too late that I wasn’t alone in that...

3D Realms: Bombshell is the only one who could kick Duke Nukem's ass

3D Realms is keenly aware of what players know it for. Sure, there are plenty of titles in the publisher's history that should stand out, but for all intents and purposes, the company might as well re-name itself The Duke Nuk...

In the world of Sorcerer King everything is terrible

This turn-based fantasy/strategy with city-building elements is super enjoyable. Even in Steam Early Access, it's got a surprising amount of polish, more so than several AAA games I can think of. I have encountered no gamebr...

Breach & Clear: Deadline is a surprisingly good action-RPG

The original Breach & Clear was a tactical strategy title in the vein of the XCOM or Rainbow Six series. It was fairly surprising when its sequel Breach & Clear: Deadline turned out to be an open-world tactical action...

In Darkest Dungeon, what doesn't kill you only makes you more peculiar

Dungeon Defenders II is shaping up nicely on both PS4 and PC

Trendy Entertainment has already bestowed Dungeon Defenders II upon its most invested fans. In fact, they've had it for more than a month now. "Invested" is the only way to describe those people -- both financially and m...

This War of Mine is a harrowing journey of survival

War, what is it good for? For starters, it makes for easy entertainment in fiction. With the rise of war games over the last two decades, it's common to see these experiences as nothing but an over-the-top spectacle to show o...

Whoa! Final Fantasy Type-0 HD is pretty fun
