I had the pleasure of being shown a pre-alpha build of Stronghold 3 by the Director of Firefly studios, Simon Bradbury, this afternoon. He opened the demo by stating that he didn't feel Stronghold 2 was a bad game, rather that it tried to do too many things and lost focus of what made the first Stronghold game so popular.
With Stronghold 3, however, the game is set to return to its roots. read feature

There are children yet unborn who weep within the bellies of their mothers, knowing they are to be thrust into the same world that gave us Two Worlds. The original RPG from Topware Interactive is so atrocious, so unutterably ... read
I typically don't get along with "realistic" racing games, but I'll love any good racer that does something a little over-the-top. This is why I am somewhat drawn to Nail'd, a new bike racing game from Southpeak Interactive. It trades in realistic physics for sheer speed, and surprisingly it works out quite well.
Read on for some hands-on impressions of Nail'd. read feature
Two Worlds II is a game with a hard job. It's got to convince people it's worth buying despite its status as a sequel to the worst RPG made this generation. It's shocking to think Two Worlds ever got a sequel, but watching t... read

3D Dot Game Heroes doesn't try to hide what it is and I respect that. One can call it a Zelda clone and they'd be falling right in line with the marketing.
