PAYDAY: The Heist always reminds me of Michael Mann’s brilliant, taut tale of thievery, Heat. The opening of The Dark Knight reminded me of Heat, too; a more somber Point Break, given the creepy clown masks. And now PA... more

Another free character, Gnaw, was added to Awesomenauts, and I'm becoming increasingly glad that I opted to double dip with the Steam release. While it seems entirely likely that he'll eventually end up on Xbox Live Arcade, t... more
I've run out of complimentary things to say about the visuals in the Trine series, so I'll just point you to this trailer for the now-named Trine 2 expansion, Goblin Menace. Prepare your eyes for vibrant colors.
