Receiver, a first-person shooter with mechanics grounded in reality, is finally available on Steam for super cheap. You can temporarily pick it up for $3.99, 20% off its original price of $4.99. If you already own Receiver through purchase or pre-ordering Overgrowth, then you should have a key waiting for you on the Humble Bundle site.

Wolfire Games is absolutely brimming with talent, and Receiver is a strong example of some of the fantastic gameplay ideas they have. I love that it's a single idea extrapolated into a complete project that doesn't feel overbearing. They just had a cool idea, made a game in a week, and released it unto us plebs. Oh, and there's a super interesting postmortem of the game on their blog, which reveals a lot about Greenlight and how Receiver almost didn't end up on Steam at all.

Review: The Walking Dead Season 2: Amid the Ruins

The last episode of The Walking Dead was probably my favorite one yet -- and that's including all of Lee's tale from the first season. Clem has made the switch from tough to full-on badass depending on your choices, and ...more

Review: Dark Souls II: The Crown of the Sunken King

2014 has been very good to me, but Dark Souls II is one of my favorite games of the year. Many debates have raged on as to whether or not it's as exceptional as its predecessor (Demon's Souls is better than bot...more
