Well, I'm sold.

Magrunner: Dark Pulse looks great if this trailer is any proper indication. I'm in love with the starkly clashing, almost manic aesthetic that smacks of colorful imagination straight out of the PS2 era. Our own Caitlin Cooke caught Magrunner at E3 and quite enjoyed it, noting that it isn't just some Portal clone. And, even if it is, there are worse things to clone. Maybe I've managed to avoid most of them, but I have seen relatively few first-person puzzlers emerge in Portal's wake anyway.

Magrunner is now available on both Steam and GOG for a fair $19.99. PS3 and Xbox 360 releases are slated for September.

Magrunner: Dark Pulse looks really darn cool

Magrunner: Dark Pulse is a game that you may brush off as a Portal imitator at first - but I urge you not to do so. After playing through some levels on the E3 show floor, Magrunner has caught my attention not just with its delightful puzzle-solving mechanics but through the world and story itself.more

This trailer offers a much better look at Magrunner

Magrunner: Dark Pulse would appear decent enough if it were merely another first-person puzzle game set in a glorified maze of obstacles to maneuver around, but that's not what it is. Well, it seems to starts out that w...more

Mighty Tactical Shooter is a rad looking turn-based shmup

Usually when one thinks about shmups, precision motor skill and quick reaction are what come to mind. Mighty Tactical Shooter turns that completely on its head. Though precision movement and shot placement is still required,...more

This newest batch of Hyrule Warriors screenshots is pretty insane, and shows off the newly announced Sheik, Darunia, and Princess Ruto characters in all their glory. Darunia seems to have a giant hammer, most likely pinning h...more
