Back in October, PlayStation Network got a neat-looking arcade-style game called Derrick the Deathfin that seemed to go under a lot of radars. I was hoping to see it release and do really well on Steam, but that hasn't happened quite yet. This really should happen, though!

While we wait for Derrick to gain a following on Steam Greenlight, the game has become available for Windows and Mac via the Humble Store. $7.99 gets you DRM-free access to downloadable copies for these two platforms.

As someone who loves games set underwater -- well, most of them -- and the papercraft aesthetic on display here, this is going to require further investigation. For what it's worth, co-creator Gordon Midwood seems like a stand-up fellow.

Review in Progress: Firefall

Firefall is a game that has seemed to get a lot of press over the past few years, often for the wrong reasons. Whether it's word of troubled staff, protests, or delays, most Firefall news isn't good news. But alas, as we...more

Review: Road Not Taken

The term "roguelike" gets way too much airtime these days. If anything has permadeath, it's instantly a roguelike. If it takes place in a dungeon -- "roguelike!" But the original Rogue's core mechanical element was its grid-b...more

Review: Call of Duty: Ghosts: Nemesis

Look, $50 is a lot of money for a Season Pass in a first-person shooter. If it was just comprised of 16 maps alone, no matter how good they were, it probably wouldn't be worth the money for all but the most diehard of FPS fan...more
