One of the great things about games today is that we are seeing new ideas in addition to the tried and true shooters and platformers. Elegy for a Dead World has one of those ideas, and it will be interesting to watch how it ...

Kentucky Route Zero fought hard in a number of categories in our 2013 game of the year awards despite only the first two of five episodes having been released. It is very good. Even if Act IV isn't out yet. You can get the season pass (Acts I-III now, IV and V whenever they come out) on Steam for $12.50 at the moment, half of the usual $25 asking price. Well worth it.
