Frozen Endzone, the tactical robo-sport from the developers of Frozen Synapse, has officially been renamed. The new name is Frozen Cortex, and I've taken the liberty of making a new logo for it. The rename is taking place bec...


Note: there will be no spoilers in this post for day one or two, but expect them in the comments!  Yesterday was as exciting as it was heartbreaking for some, but that's just the way things go when over $10 million is on...


First of all, don't worry I won't spoil anything from yesterday here. There will, however, be spoilers in the comments! Yesterday was an intense start to The International 2014, with great teams like DK, Newbee, and EG playin...


SanctuaryRPG, a combination of roguelikes and JRPGS with ASCII graphics, is available now and best of all, you can pay whatever you want! After playing for the past few days, I heavily recommend laying down some cash for this...

The 2014 website for The International Dota 2 Championships is now live, and with it comes some great new information. The best of which is that there will be a specific stream for players brand new to the esport. This s...


The first Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing wasn't a bad game, however it did have crippling technical issues that held it back. Those issues have since been fixed, and developer Neocore Games has learned a lot i...


The Dota 2 prize pool for the upcoming International 2014 tournament is now at $10 million dollars. With zeroes that looks like this: $10,000,000. All of the newly added stretch goals have been reached, the most recent ...


I'll assume everyone has already seen the Team Fortress 2 animated short that Valve put out yesterday and have been very excited to jump back into TF2. Today, the Love & War update has been more detailed, with new weapons and GIGANTIC balance changes. Let's chat about them, shall we?


Our first glimpse of Mortal Kombat X (MKX) came today in the form of a presumably CG teaser trailer. Some people don't think that the trailer served much of a purpose, since it didn't explicitly state what we can ex...


I've always had a strange relationship with the characters from SpyParty. With the old "basic" character models, there really isn't much detail or emotion put into any one character. Yet, I always find myself saying things li...


The Dota 2 community, along with most MOBAs, gets a bad rap for being mean jerks. While yes, there are plenty of mean jerks out there, it's moments like these that prove that we can really band together to...spend money....


The penultimate stretch goal, environmental effects, has been reached for Dota 2's International 2014 tournament after only a single week of raising money. Nearly $4,000,000 has been contributed by the community, making ...

A new update just hit Dota 2, and it brought with it another slew of balance changes in the form of the 6.81 patch. Buffs and nerfs abound, and the future of the game has changed once again. Many have claimed that the 6.80 ve...


The Spring Cleaning update for Dota 2, which seemingly was announced a little bit earlier than Valve wanted, is now live on the main client of the game. A metric butt-ton of bugfixes are included, along with new chests and ba...


Hot off its huge Kickstarter success, Darkest Dungeon is already in a playable-enough state to have a demo at PAX East 2014. Although the demo was only a short snippet of what's to come, it was easy to get a sense of the them...


I’ve been interested in Aaru’s Awakening ever since its announcement captivated me with its hand-drawn art style. It’s pretty hard to pass up playing a game that looks the way Aaru’s Awakening does. Fr...


Hidden Path Entertainment sure does know how to make some good videogames. Defense Grid and its expansion are a blast for any tower defense fan, but they've also done Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Age of Empires I...


With a name like Hack N Slash, it’s easy to assume exactly what’s in the package and dismiss it. Then people hear it’s from Double Fine and expectations immediately change for the better, as they should. Hac...


I have found myself both playing and looking forward to more and more “point-and-click” games in the past few years than ever before. I didn’t grow up with games like Day of the Tentacle or the Monkey Island...


Mercenary Kings is a Kickstarter success story that has finally made its way into the consumer’s hands. Combining elements from games like Monster Hunter and Metal Slug, Kings attempts to capture player’s hearts with its retro look and lighthearted feel. Also you can make a gun that is a cat and goes "mew!" when you fire it.


Tower of Guns is a game of many secrets and intricacies, just as any good roguelike. Since I love to teach people things, I thought I'd lend a helping hand out to anyone who cares to look. Not just with text and those pl...


I never thought I would actually say this, but I am enjoying myself while playing Diablo III. Keep in mind this is without Reaper of Souls, and is entirely about the newest patch -- Loot 2.0. After spending countless hours ...


In many ways, I'm very glad that Final Fantasy: Tactics had such a big influence on my tastes. It's an incredibly well made game and put me on a path towards playing more games of its ilk like Phantom Brave or the m...


Personally, I'm a huge fan of American Football (henceforth known as football, sorry EU). It also happens that I am a huge fan of Frozen Synapse. When it was announced by Mode 7 Games that they were combining the two, I ...


TowerFall originally came out on the OUYA. I’ve played it on that console, and it was certainly a blast, so long as you weren’t the one stuck with the OUYA controller. TowerFall: Ascension brings the good time t...


As a combination of the first-person shooter genre and the modern-day roguelikes, Tower of Guns is being pushed as a “lunchbreak FPS.” After playing, I can say this is a pretty accurate description, except I only ...


Beat-’em-ups are quite the strange genre to me. I grew playing many of them: Simpsons, X-Men, and Turtles in Time in the arcades were my jam. In fact, I’d say they are still my jam. That said, it’s easy to r...


Most everyone asked for him, and he's finally here! No longer just an assist trophy, Little Mac from the Punch-Out! series has finally joined the newest installment of Super Smash Bros.!


[Want to know how an Early Access game is coming along? Check out our Early Access Reviews, which will be a series going forward with the intent of informing you whether or not a game is worth buying into at this time.] I&rsq...


My life's earnings are stashed away in my vault. Well, half of it. As an added security measure, I've given my wife half to hold on to and protect with her life. I've built my house in such a way that I feel pretty confiden...


Laika was a female Soviet dog, and the first mutt in space and to orbit the Earth. Laika was never intended to return. She died during her orbit, and her remains burnt up as the Sputnik 2 re-entered the Earth’s atmosphere and disintegrated. Or did she… 


Yesterday, a new game mode, the Hero Terrorblade, and balance changes were introduced for the newest Dota 2 update, scheduled to go live tomorrow. Today we get another Hero, Phoenix, a new feature, and HATS! The new...


The Chinese New Year is upon us, and everyone knows that that means: a new Dota 2 event! The update was vaguely outlined yesterday, but today we can get a much better idea of what the New Bloom update will have in store....


In both Super Smash Bros. Melee and Brawl, there's a popular mechanic commonly referred to as "edge-hogging." Since only one character can be on an edge at a time, when a character is knocked off of the stage, their oppo...


I have no idea how to accurately describe Continue?9876543210 so I’ll just copy and paste this quote from the developer in here: “Continue? is for the type of person that appreciates odd, poetic word play, interpr...


Hey everyone! There’s a Platinum Games game out on PC! WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?! Well, I guess since this is their first foray into the world of PC ports, it’s probably a good idea to check and see how well they&...


Nidhogg has always been a mysterious turbo-indie game that only the cool kids could play at secret underground events in the 13th hour (NO, I WASN’T JEALOUS). Anyway, we plebeians finally have a chance to own ...


Baldur’s Gate II holds a pretty special place in my heart. It was easily my favorite RPG from my younger days, and to be honest not much has changed since. Classic Dungeons & Dragons gameplay combined...
