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...
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.
I hope you guys managed to pre-order Virtue's Last Reward on time to get that sweet watch, because that sh*t sold out fast. I had heard that Aksys offered a second batch of watches this week, but by the time I scoped out Amaz...
A few years ago, I discovered escape-the-room Flash games and was hooked instantly. Shorter and more compact than your typical point-and-click adventure, escape-the-room games such as Crimson Room are a great way to kill time...
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...
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!&...

It's been a while since any region outside of Japan received a new 3D Classics touch-up on the 3DS eShop. You may think that the only difference between the originals and their 3D remakes is the added stereoscopic effect, but...
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...
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...
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...
Following the port to Steam (Windows/Mac), acclaimed mobile puzzle game 10000000 will soon be arriving on further platforms, including that one some of you have been patiently waiting for since the beginning. Yes, an Android ...
A Lite [free] version of 1-Bit Ninja has just hit the App Store. Despite the fact that it's a precision based platformer, the game actually works incredibly well considering the touch-based control method, and heark...
Mojang's upcoming space game 0x10c is one of those projects that you don't fully understand, but much of what you are able to comprehend sounds potentially great. Described as "some kind of space adventure, first-pe...
After it turned out that the new GoldenEye game didn't suck and Activision simultaneously published a new third-person Bond adventure in the form of Blood Stone (seriously flawed, but showed promise) I actually had ...
It's Saturday, the start of Labor Day Weekend, and you don't have any plans. Rather than cry into a pint of Ben & Jerry's Phish Food, why don't you give this little Flash game a go? The hours will melt away. / ESCAPE \ is...
Everybody knows Snake. It has assumed many forms, has appeared on every platform from cell phones to friggin' Gmail. It's a videogame constant like Minesweeper -- it just is. Isn't it about time the formula was shaken up a b...
I may have confessed to not being a fan of Team ICO's games, but that doesn't mean I can't celebrate its success. The ICO & Shadow of the Colossus Collection has topped the multiplatform sales chart in North America and J...
Pirates -- the swashbuckling sort -- are pretty great. Videogames are pretty great too; the good ones, anyway. For some unfathomable reason, these two things don’t come together as frequently as I would like. Fortunatel...
Half-Minute Hero was arguably one of the PlayStation Portable's best games. As a deconstruction of the role-playing genre, it poked fun at its peers by condensing the core experience of an 80+ hour epic down to just thir...
Think back to the American Civil War. Now think how the war would have been had there been tanks, mini-guns, and even zeppelins! That's what developer Radioactive Software is doing with its alternative historical take on the...
A few days ago, I was crushing beers at Shenanigans, a restaurant-cum-watering-hole in Sewanee, Tennessee, home of my alma mater, The University of the South. Specifically, I was talking with my friend Reed about videogames, ...
