Exclusive Bomb Monkey talk-through with the surprise pals


4:30 PM on 04.10.2012



Sometimes when you're at PAX East eating a $8 cheeseburger and waiting for your batteries to recharge (literally and figuratively), you'll end up having an amazing time. That's what's happened to me on the day that the amazing Jools Watsham (Mutant Mudds, Sup Holmes?) ambushed me in the hallway with an unreleased, never before seen game called Bomb Monkey. It's a great little puzzler, reminiscent of Super Puzzle Fighter and Critter Crunch, but with a style all its own.

It even has dual screen competitive and co-op modes where one player plays off the lower screen, controlling the action with the d-pad, and the other plays off the upper screen using the face buttons. That may sound like it wouldn't work, but because the game is so simple to control, it's pretty much perfect. Getting so many features in a budget-priced title like this is a nice surprise.

That wasn't the only surprise I got that day. My time with the game ended with the sudden appearance of a human being that is very hard to ignore. I can't wait to show you the new TtWaV, guys. It's going to be a hoot.

Strafe is the goriest, most realistic shooter of 1996

I am tempted to just post the email we got about Strafe (stylized as STRAFE®), because it is a masterpiece of videogame marketing. With phrases like "not for the faint of heart" and "we understand if our game is too real...more

Ironically, the Kickstarter for Hollow Knight looks solid

I have had my eye on Hollow Knight for a few days, but had not yet pulled the trigger on highlighting it. It is a pretty 2D action game (though the color palette is a bit muted for my taste) starring some sort of insect-pers...more
