Tom and Tony Cannon have had quite the impact on the fighting game community with contributions like the Evolution Championship Series, the GGPO middleware for online play, and Shoryuken.com. For over a year, the duo has been working on its first game, and it's a step in an unusual direction. Stonehearth is a city-building simulation game that's said to be "equal parts sandbox, real-time strategy, and RPG."
"We love fighters deeply, but from the time we were kids we've also been passionate about geeky simulation games," says Tom Cannon. The Kickstarter for Stonehearthis now live, with the main campaign going toward funding single-player while co-op and PvP functionality are relegated to stretch goals.
These types of games are obviously in right now, and although this may appear familiar in more ways than one, it's got some compelling ideas. I particularly like the look of the class system for leveling up settlers. And, yeah, that Cthulhu-looking fellow. Of course.
Need to see more substance? This demonstration shows a familiar sight for the genre -- chopping down trees -- plus the design phase and construction of a basic house in Stonehearth.

Torchman Oh look, a picture of all your waifus in the place where they belong!SeymourDuncan17 #NekroGoalsPixie The Fairy Impressions of job so far: I can indeed play Monster Hunter 4 since I'm a passenger. It's three hours to Charleston, SC, so arguments against that are irrelevant. The chicken bowl at Bojangles is also nice.LinkSlayer64 *insert ojuo-sama laughter here*

That'll be sure to break them.Sotanaht Dammit Fangamer, are you TRYING to break me?!Nathan D When I think of gajknight.
SpaghettiOReilly I'm actually pretty bummed out about Game Trailers closing up shop. I hadn't visited in years but I still remember the good old days of having to wait for low-res versions of AVGN episodes to load. You'll be missed, all.Shinta Twitter should hire these lovely ladies. They seem extremely impartial and even handed in their views. KnickKnackMyWack My response to new Sonc games is always lukewarm. I'm making progress because ever since Shadow the Hedgehog, my reactions tended to be pretty bitter. Never understood why anyone gets hyped though, they never live up to the marketing. Like ever.gajknight Whenever I think of Larx. Quite thrilling.FakePlasticTree Majima: Kaz, I'm already a waifu.
Finally playing Kiwami! Eeeeeeeee!Jinx 01 Sonic the Hedgehog movie coming in 2018... hopefully it's one of those "so bad it's good" movies at least. http://mynintendonews.com/2016/02/10/sonic-the-hedgehog-movie-confirmed-for-2018/Shinta Daniel Bloodworth from GameTrailers posted a neat retrospective of his time at the website.

Such as the Dtoid mod arbitrarily deleting my comments because I dislike the shit they like. "This will show him who's boss here", lol, impotent nerd.Sr Churros The new artificial Pokémon is my waifu
