Are there any games you regret Kickstarting?

There are so many games I've thought about crowdfunding -- and a bunch I'll surely end up buying, once they're complete -- but only two that have managed to get me to put money down in advance: Double Fine Adventure and Aweso...

Battle Chef Brigade looks like the actual best game photo
Battle Chef Brigade looks like the actual best game
by Steven Hansen

I love cooking, as you hopefully well know. The initial inspiration for A la cartridge was Iron Chef, though it ended up something completely different. And so here is a game that speaks tenderly to my soul.

Battle Chef Brigade, now doing some crowdfunding, is what you'd get if Iron Chef contestants had to go out and kill their own food to serve. It looks gorgeous, which just makes me hungry. It's just like how food always looks so damn good in Ghibli films. And the idea -- have a variety of chefs go out into a persistent environment to get the freshest of ingredients to cook up -- is amazing. 

Dragon's Crown's cooking minigame was not enough. This is what I need.

Review: Wasteland 2 photo
Review: Wasteland 2
by Alasdair Duncan

[Disclosure: I backed the Wasteland 2 Kickstarter and as such received an Early Access copy of the game.]

Wasteland 2 is one of the projects that saw success in the wake of Double Fine's Broken Age. Just a month after Tim Schafer's adventure game project blew past its funding goal, Brian Fargo and inXile Entertainment also saw their Kickstarter pull in millions of dollars.

Despite the original Wasteland dating back to 1988, there were more than enough fans who wanted to see a sequel made. So Wasteland 2 exists in a strange position where the fans who remember the original played a very different game than the one that's been delivered in 2014.

While PC RPGs have changed a lot over the years, Wasteland 2 is still very old-school in a lot of ways -- some good, some bad -- and remains true to its intentions and origins.

Reflex is a new challenger in twitch FPS gaming

Watching the cycles that the game industry goes through over the years is interesting. We have previously seen adventure games and horror games peak in popularity, wane, and then come back through the indie scene. It seems l...

Poncho is a cute robot in a lovely open-world platformer

Remember Triple Triad in Final Fantasy VIII? Check out Eminence: Xander's Tales
