How did that bread get up on the ceiling fan? Very carefully, I'd imagine.
Bossa Studios' I am Bread is a game in which you literally play as a sentient slice of bread. And, get this, it looks fun! Challenging, too. The cont...
Bandai Namco sends word that Slightly Mad Studios' upcoming racer, Project Cars, has been pushed back to March 20, 2015. This goes for all versions: PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
They say the move helps them break away from th...
Couple of things about Gex.
First and foremost, the PC version of the original is now available on GOG.com. It's priced at $5.99 and should be quite the nostalgia trip for some of you. That's the main reason I'm writing this ...
Comedy ain't easy, especially in this medium, so a title that tries to game-ify creating a stand-up comedy routine sound a tad ambitious. Leave 'em Laughing from Australian developer Oscar Brittain is a mashup of adventure g...
You know what this game is already, right? If not, it's the one about committing robberies with friends while wearing really creepy masks. Definitely worth adding to the ol' Steam library but it's also a freebie you might consider, well, playing. I know, I know -- crazy thought.
On a related note, Steam is hosting a free weekend for 10 games including the sequel to Payday. That promotion is live now and will continue until Sunday afternoon. Better prioritize.
As I learned at PAX Prime, actually knowing how to play Dreadnought is half the battle. It's an enamoring idea to rush in with the quickest ship and fire until either you or your target is dead. If that's your approach,...
Halo: Spartan Strike is a new top-down shooter coming to Windows 8 devices and PC on December 12. Microsoft says the title features a "compelling" story (seriously?) as well as improved touch controls and updated graphics in contrast with its predecessor, Spartan Assault.
The package contains a total of 30 missions in exchange for Microsoft's $5.99 asking price.
Well, this is about as f*cked up as they come. Hatred, an apparently very real game that's in development by the classy folks at Destructive Creations, is about a man's mission to slaughter as many unarmed civilians as possi...
Johnny Gat's not a good man. Powerful, but not good. That's why he uses each and every of the seven deadly sins to send all of those already dead to the after-afterlife. Most of them look like they deserve it, to be fair. Especially those nipple-rubbing demons.
I grew up happily playing Shinji Mikami's games, and he's probably one of the most influential directors/producers that ever lived. I remember the first time I played Resident Evil, the day I bought Devil May Cry from EB Games, and the exact moment when my friend showed me God Hand.
All in all Mikami has worked on over 20 major games that have impacted the industry in some way. Even if The Evil Within is one of the worst in the bunch, it's still in good company.
For 48 hours, GOG.com is giving out free copies of Aliens versus Predator Classic 2000 to people who register their email address for the GOG Galaxy beta test. Easy enough.
But what is Galaxy, exactly? It's an upcoming DRM-free online gaming platform, as previously described here. Think of Steam as imagined by the GOG.com folks, essentially.
For the beta, "You'll be helping us to analyze and improve the performance of the multiplayer component of GOG Galaxy," hence the free game with multiplayer. Note that keys will be sent in batches so there will almost certainly be some waiting required on your part.
AVP 2000 looks dated but it's possible to get past that after a while. The last time I played -- three or four years back, I think -- it held up fairly well. Still fun after all these years.
Max and I continue to grope around blindly in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. Hear us talk about space-related camp movies, and make NBA Jam references. Then Max gets really horny about videogames. Oh, and we shoot psychopaths or whatever...
Deadcore is a futuristic first-person shooter/platforming hybrid that got its start in a 7DFPS game jam in 2012 by five friends who met while studying videogame design in Angoulême, France. Extended work on the prototy...
I like Steam's Free Weekend promotions in theory but I don't know that I've ever participated in one. That'll likely change tomorrow, beginning 10:00am Pacific, when 10 games become free to download and play on Steam until Sunday at 1:00pm Pacific. Here's the list:
Company of Heroes 2
XCOM: Enemy Unknown
Some great games, right? I'd be curious to try out Injustice and Grid 2 as a casual player of fighting and racing games, respectively. If Awesomenauts and XCOM are out of your comfort zone, consider giving those two a try. You may just come to dig the heck out of 'em.
After what seemed like an interminably long wait (at least for me), Finnish independent game development studio Almost Human's hotly-anticipated followup to its first-person dungeon crawler Legend of Grimrock is launchin...
