Bask in the glory that is Basingstoke

Puppygames is at it again, this time revealing a bit more of the action you'll likely encounter in its upcoming stealthy roguelike Basingstoke. It's probably no secret by this point that Basingstoke is high up on my lis...

Horizon Danger looks like my kind of PvP platformer

Horizon Danger is described by its lone creator, SCaffa, as a "2 to 4 person local-multiplayer action game set in a cyberpunk dystopian future." Without a doubt, this is the kind of local PvP multiplayer game that I would be...

Review: Dreamfall Chapters Book One photo
Review: Dreamfall Chapters Book One
by Alasdair Duncan

It wasn't surprising to hear that the long-awaited Dreamfall Chapters would be split into separate episodes -- it's in the name, really. Episodic adventure games are well established now, so in my mind, separating a new Dreamfall game into smaller chunks isn't a bad idea.

Book One starts at the end of 2006's Dreamfall: The Longest Journey so if you've been dying to see what happens to Zoë, Kian et al. then you'll be glad to have this story continued. Series newcomers might be left scratching their heads, wondering what's going on. Trouble is, this episode doesn't do much to help you understand what's happening. You're left wanting more.

There are just too many assassins in the new AC Unity TV ad

The new Assassin's Creed Unity television spot sheds a few tears, but it sheds way more blood. That's what happens when it figuratively rains assassins in the streets, from the roofs, and through the windows. Sometimes it takes a flood to spark a revolution.

Beating Spelunky on a dance pad is quite the remarkable feat photo
Beating Spelunky on a dance pad is quite the remarkable feat
by Brett Makedonski


Spelunky players are always finding new and interesting ways to torture themselves. Let's face it -- besting Spelunky's unforgiving randomly generated mazes is an accomplishment unto itself. Learning to do it with your feet is a completely different level of insane dedication.

But, that's what one Twitch streamer did to celebrate getting to 1,000 followers -- he mastered Spelunky's directional controls on a dance pad, and used a controller for the buttons. With the assistance of an early jetpack, he marched right through the game and dropped Olmec to his death.

Not too shabby for something that the majority of players couldn't do with their hands.

I'm happy a game like Shelter 2 can exist

Badgers were cute in Shelter, but I prefer the lynxes of Shelter 2 -- still adorable and higher up on the food chain. This is a survival game in which you begin as a pregnant lynx, a first for the medium, I'm sure. You'll ma...

Resident Evil was a difficult game to remaster in HD photo
Resident Evil was a difficult game to remaster in HD
by Alessandro Fillari

With the rise of high-definition re-releases, many fans have likely made a wish list of titles they hope will eventually get the HD treatment. Whether they be classics from the '90s or 2000s, we're seeing a variety of games find new life in today's market. Unfortunately, not every title can make that transition to modern consoles, be it for technical or design reasons.

Thankfully, Resident Evil is an exception. During a special hands-on session with the game, I experienced what it was like to return the mansion in full HD, and even got to speak with members of Capcom staff to learn about the challenges they faced with Remastered.

They certainly had their work cut out for them.
