Heroes of Ruin  



Heroes of Ruin has an impressive amount of customization


10:00 AM on 03.18.2012



Heroes of Ruin is the exact kind of game I've been craving for my 3DS lately. I've been wanting a fantasy co-op action-RPG that's all about looting for weapons and armor to make your character as badass as possible. And as the trailer shows off, there's a ton of customization. I also really like that there's choice between using blades or guns. That's always a nice touch.

I'm a bit curious to find out how the looting will work with your online co-op partner though. Like, if the loot will be split or it will all be first-come first-serve for example. I'm sure we'll find out soon enough. I'm a sucker for these types of games though. Especially when all the environments are all colorful and one enemy type looks like a character out of the show Street Sharks. Hopefully we'll get a more concrete release date for Heroes of Ruin other than "sometime this year."

Y2K is a surrealist fantasy told through the lens of a Murakami-loving hipster

Y2K began with protagonist Alex Eggleston returning to his his hometown from college. I watched him gaze out of bus windows until the scene shifted to him sharing a seat with a man in a panda costume. This was jarring enough to give Alex reason to look completely shaken and offended, and as the jaunty soundtrack suggested, should have felt super quirky and weird. It didn't.more
