Review: Shadowrun: Dragonfall photo
Review: Shadowrun: Dragonfall
by Alasdair Duncan

Shadowrun Returns was released last year after a successful Kickstarter campaign and seemed to please fans and backers alike. In our review, Fraser Brown commented on how the toolset provided with the game would provide plenty of content in the future, and whilst it has been well supported by modders, most fans were waiting patiently for the big expansion, Dragonfall

Dragonfall is an expansion in the old-school mold: it has a campaign that's equal to the length of the main Shadowrun story, a whole new setting and characters, and there's some nice refinements to the mechanics and structure. There's still some problems and frustrations but if you put up with them in the original Shadowrun, then Dragonfall will give you even more enjoyment.

Ex-Blizzard, Insomniac dev working on tactical, turn-based Duelyst

This game looks amazing. Duelyst, which I'm too in awe of to poke at the "y" in the title, started as a tabletop game that the team at newly formed Counterplay Games decided to turn into a videogame. That vision has come stu...

Frozen Endzone hits Steam Early Access, here's why it's awesome

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 ...

Ronimo announces Wii U-only Swords & Soldiers II

While I'm a huge Awesomenauts fan first and foremost, I also got a kick out of Ronimo Games' prior release, Swords & Soldiers. It is one of those sidescrolling real-time strategy titles where you send your troops to the ...

Former PixelJunk devs' Nova-111 looks real clever

The concept of "real-time" has begun bleeding into the otherwise turn-based world of Nova-111, a super-neat-looking game from ex-PixelJunk developers. I'd recommend watching this trailer to get a better handle on what that m...

Dungeon Keeper is free on GOG.com photo
Dungeon Keeper is free on GOG.com
by Jordan Devore

In light of the negative reactions to the new Dungeon Keeper for mobile, this is too perfect. GOG.com is offering the original game for free in a 48-hour promotion.

Unless you already own the Bullfrog classic, there's no reason to miss out on this deal. It seems many people are taking the site up on the offer -- requesting your copy currently gives the message "You'll get your game soon! Minion, due to high demand, we will tell you when your free copy of Dungeon Keeper is ready via email in a little bit."

GOG.com, you can be my valentine any time. Also, Dungeon Keeper 2 is on sale for $1.49.

[Thanks, Eduardo]
