Call of Juarez is a series I've always wanted to enjoy. It's hard not to admire its attempts at clever storytelling, and the commitment to creating a wild west first-person shooter in an age where everything's about blasting ...

I really enjoyed Card Hunter when it dropped late last year. It had a refreshing art style, a fun sense of humor, and a fair free-to-play scheme -- and now, it's getting more content this month in the form of an expansio...

Space. Since the dawn of time, man has looked up at the sky and dreamed what incredible wonders could be out there. There could be new planets with advanced civilizations, moons made entirely out of dairy products, and attrac...

Many indie studios love to be as weirdly obtuse as possible, and you won't find a finer example than Ice-Pick Lodge. The studio's last major title, The Void, was as vague as vague can get, and plenty strange to boot.  Ic...

I'd like to pay Richard Hofmeier to talk to me about videogames. During last week's Sup Holmes (now on iTunes), he told me about so many great things, like the free online "game" Geoguessr, surrealist interactive text auteur...

EasyGameStation is a doujin developer powered by fandom. Each of its games pay ode to the Japanese classics that came before them. Sometimes they feel like an inspired tribute (Recettear), while other times they border on be...

Deponia ended right when things were getting good, and so that’s where Chaos on Deponia begins. Despite the first reaching the West in January -- or August, really, for us Steam-lovin’ folks -- a full, bona fide...

Who would win in a fight between a shark and a medieval knight? My money's on the shark. I mean, sharks have been around for hundreds of millions of years. Those things know how to survive! From May 1 until May 4, Steam will...

The Humble Jumbo Bundle has been purchased over 500,000 times so far, and the organizers behind the event have gone ahead and thrown three more games into the mix. The three new additions are Cities in Motion 2, Orcs Must Die...

It's been awhile since I have played a good city builder. I'll admit that it can be a hard genre to sell, and we don't see a whole lot of them today. Thankfully, Cities XL 2012 is out, and it's a great expansion to&...

The connection between the design and implementation of the sidewalks and streets we use on a daily basis requires a huge mental leap for me. Walking down the cobblestone in my city and looking up to see the sky framed with ...

The Fifth Element came on TV the other day, and it really got me thinking about mise-en-scène versus characterization. It’s one of my absolute favorite movies, and is an exemplar of sci-fi in cinema without being...

When you’re the developer of one of the largest timesinks in gaming history, what do you do to follow up on the release of your latest and greatest? Why, make it an even bigger life-swallower, of course. Firaxis seems t...

Though the game has been out since 2010, Civilization V is still selling strong through the years. If you're a turn-based strategy fan and you somehow, magically, inexplicably don't have it in your library, consider the ...

When Civilization V launched a few years back, a lot of die-hard fans were disappointed with the lack of depth the game had to offer. The graphics were sharp, the interface was clean and intuitive, and the overall gameplay wa...

Civilization has always had a special place in my heart. As a turn-based 4X strategy game, it is the antithesis of damn-near everything in the shooter-saturated landscape that is the modern game market. When it was initiall...

Sure, it felt more like a skinned, lightweight Civilization V than a full-blown Alpha Centauri spiritual successor... but at $16, Civilization: Beyond Earth is worth a look for die-hard Civ fans. As of writing, it's the lowes...

When you seemingly combine Mirror's Edge, Mega Man and a Gravity Rush aesthetic by way of color pencils, my ears perk up. I did not know what I was getting myself into. Cloudbuilt is hard. Like, real hard. When this review wa...

I never thought I'd ever say this after the '90s, but there are simply too many interesting adventure games to keep track of. Back in 2011, I had been keeping close tabs on Cognition: An Eric Reed Thriller, after it ticked al...

The coffee in Boston's FBI offices must be a really special kind of black sludge, capable of turning ordinary investigators into relentless machines. Or maybe Special Agent Erica Reed has just transcended the need for rest or...

Sega has announced that a standalone multiplayer Company of Heroes: The Western Front Armies will launch this June for $19.99. This brings back the Western Front from the original CoH game. Two collections of content -- ...

Victory at Stalingrad is paid DLC that's a part of the larger Turning Point update, which also includes new free multiplayer maps, the World Builder tools, four free commanders, and four premium commanders. The free stuff is ...

This is one of those games that I can promise isn't what you think it is. Confrontation looks like a Diablo style hack-n-slash title, or maybe it's a little bit like Dungeon Siege. Nope, get those ideas out of your head. Stop...

Right click. Left click. Right click. Left click. The old one-two. Jab and then...jab again. Or are they hooks? I can't tell in first-person. Regardless, I was wandering around the spaceship, punching aimlessly, until I heard...

Since Braid hit it big in 2008, puzzle platformers have been indie bread and butter. Manipulation of physics concepts like time and gravity has become relatively common in the genre. Constant C takes those ideas a half step f...
