Top down shooters are always great for some quick, exciting action. You see something move, you shoot it. Shadowgrounds, Alien Breed and Alien Swarm were great for that and now you can add the indie title [stranded] to the l...


 

Late last year, Jake "virt" Kaufman left WayForward to strike out on his own. Since then, he has hinted about a big project he envisions. It looks like Nuren: The New Renaissance is that project. A collaborative project betw...


 

I make my love of role playing, racing and puzzle games known, but I don't talk much about my other love: golf games. I adore golf games. My favorite are the PangYa titles (PC, WII and PSP), but I have love for all of the Asi...


 

From the makers of 99Bullets, the DSiWare shoot-em-up which limits the amount of ammunition the player has, comes 99Seconds. As you can see in the trailer above, 99Seconds is a game of object avoidance and survival in which the player's movement accelerates until colliding with an object and the goal is to last as long a possible. Looks like another fun, simple game for DSiWare. Neato.


 

What really is a game, anyway? This is a question that bothers a lot of insecure people with insignificant things to argue about. Actually, when 999 came out on iOS in Japan we learned it had removed the "escape the room" puz...


 

At first I thought it was "7ramed" and my mind was completing the title, however egregious, and then I realized it was "7Framed" and I can't tell if that's better or worse. Anyway, imagine you are a waiter, working like any ...


 

Vietnam's Emobi Games is working on what they think will be the country's first big game release. It's called 7554 (representing May 7, 1954), and it's a first-person shooter based on the First IndoChina war. In it, pla...


 

Board game, wheel of fortune, a vast narrative spanning thousands of years -- 7 Grand Steps is a strange beast. Through simple slot machine mechanics, choose-your-own-adventure scenarios, and eventually actual strategy, one b...


 

If you're like me, then you'll have staggered out of a pub, wandered home, and then tried to fill in the blanks but, like a favorite song of mine says, it's just the best bits that are colored in. I can't honestly say there's...


 

Nintendo is giving early adopters twenty free videogames from its dusty old vaults, and that's fine, but those hoping for something fresher and/or worth more than a collective five bucks were left disappointed ... until now!&...


 

The Sega Genesis classic Super Hang-On is getting a 3D makeover for the 3DS, due out on Nintendo's eShop on March 27 for 600 Yen. Following on from Sega's first 3D re-release of 3D Space Harrier, you can play Super Hang-On us...


 

Following last week's debut of 3D Space Harrier and Super Hang-On on the 3DS eShop, another pair from the Sega 3D Classics line is available: 3D Sonic the Hedgehog and 3D Altered Beast. These are priced at $5.99/€4.99/&p...


 

One of the great things about Sega's ongoing 3DS Classics series is that it allows retro games from the publisher's past to find a new audience. And given its rich and diverse history of quirky and fan-favorite titles, there'...


 

To many, the name 3D Classics: Xevious is itself an oxymoron. Space Invaders, Galaga, Defender, and Gradius are considered by most as shoot 'em up classics. However, Xevious never quite reached that level of prestige, at leas...


 

A 3D update of Urban Champion? How did this happen? Here's how I think it went down... Nintendo President Satoru Iwata (the responsible one) heads over to the house of Nintendo creative mastermind Shigeru Miyamoto (...


 

It's been a while since Nintendo has offered up a 3D Classic for grabs, but that's just what they're doing today, as Excitebike (3D Classics, 3DS eShop) is now available on Club Nintendo for 150 coins until August 26th E...

You know how there's a new Alone in the Dark game stumbling out of Atari's HQ drunk enough to face the disappointment in all of our faces when it arrives? Yeah? Forget that game. Frederick Raynal, good-haired creator of the ...


 

Watching the above video, I thought I had a pretty good handle on what happens in 24 Killers. After finishing it, I felt more confused than before. Upon investigating the Kickstarter campaign, it turns out that 24 Killers fo...


 

Every four years, many of us pretend to be fans of il calcio -- I'm sorry, soccer -- for the global spectacle that is the World Cup. Every four years, EA releases an extra, novelty soccer game (in addition to its annual FIFA...


 

20,000 Leagues Above the Clouds is the first game from Stockholm, Sweden-based studio That Brain and it's quite the debut at that. As the captain of an airship, you'll assemble a crew, trade, gather resources, and do whateve...


 

San Francisco is an underused setting in games. I still need to play Driver: San Francisco, but I'm not sure how much it takes advantage of the city. Daedalic's new adventure game 1954: San Francisco seems to, as you split p...


 

18th Gate is a hex-based SRPG that boasts a decent amount of content for a DSiWare game. You can play as multiple heroes, trek through 18 areas, and encounter randomized enemies and traps. The game is currently appr...


 

On a few separate occasions this year, I've been reminded that Rez exists and felt a flood of guilt after recalling how long it's been since I last played this ridiculously cool sequence (too long). A new Rez, or Rez HD on c...


 

At first glance, I was ready to write off 140 for its unabashedly simple art style. Silly me. I should know better than to do something like that by now. Nominated for Excellence in Audio at the 2013 Independent Games Festiv...
