Hearthstone's next expansion is just cards, will have over 100 of them

Hearthstone is still chugging, and I had a blast with its Curse of Naxxramas expansion. It added a decent amount of cards to the game (30), and some single player content that kept me busy for quite a while. The next exp...

Civilization: Beyond Earth trailer outlines the new features

Last week I detailed a lot of the new experiences that Civilization V veterans will find in Civilization: Beyond Earth. I loved what I played of it and you can read about that if you want, but those who are more visual ...

Matador is now Brigador, still a cool looking mech shooter

I decided to do some checking on Matador, which won me over early this year. This proved confusing, briefly, as some legal issues have pushed the isometric mech shooter to be renamed Brigador. I kind of miss the name, but al...

Microsoft is skipping right to Windows 10

The guy's face in the thumbnail says it all. Microsoft has announced the name of its follow-up to Windows 8 and it's, uh, Windows 10. Yeah, really. The new operating system is meant to run on all sorts of devices -- whether ...

I had a good time watching Monsterum scare people

I talked yesterday about how horror games are difficult to demo at a convention; you need to block out so much noise and activity around you to be really immersed in what you're playing. Team Junkfish had no such problems as...

War for the Overworld is the Dungeon Keeper sequel you wanted

Get a look a Dragon Age: Inquisition's customization options

Review: Chariot photo
Review: Chariot
by Brett Makedonski

Local cooperative play is something that's been increasingly neglected in an age of videogames that pushes online connectivity seemingly first and foremost. It's ironic that titles like Destiny are the current benchmark for social experiences, when all communication is done through a headset. After all, it really doesn't get more personal than sitting next to someone on a couch and working (almost literally) hand-in-hand to achieve a goal.

Frima Studio hasn't forgotten these golden moments of yesteryear, and aims to recapture them with Chariot. The developers succeeded in their ambition. In fact, they pull it off so well, that you might find yourself short-changed when you don't have a partner in crime readily handy.
