Sacred Citadel: Beat up genetically modified orcs


6:00 PM on 08.07.2012



Some things are simply timeless. Like a well cut suit, Disney songs, or running across a 2D environment slaughtering everything in your path. Deep Silver's new side scrolling brawler, Sacred Citadel, is looking to get a piece of that arcade nostalgia pie.

Three heroes -- a shaman, ranger, and warrior -- must join forces and fight off a bunch of super-orcs. I doubt it's particularly important. What is important is that it looks pretty gorgeous, has a variety of deadly weapons, loads of combos and power ups, big boss battles, and a lot of flair. Players can also ride engines of destruction and mounts. Since riding lizards in Golden Axe is one of my fondest arcade memories, I can appreciate this.

I can only hope my current co-op binge will last until 2013, when the game is set to launch on Xbox Live, PSN, and PC.

Review: Sacred Citadel

The Sacred series is never going to give Diablo a run for its money, but it's always had its own unique charm. It's a fairly standard dungeon crawler with its own element of silly humor, and that's been enough to earn it a pl...more

Sacred Citadel launch trailer overwhelms the senses

A departure from the typical installments in the role-playing Sacred series, Sacred Citadel goes after the beat'-em-up crowd as its own separate thing. This pleases me greatly, having failed to ever get into t...more

Indigo Prophecy gets an HD trailer, downed Amazon page

Hey, Indigo Prophecy is looking pretty good. I wish this remaster would've picked a name and stuck to it, though. Calling it Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy is just kind of messy and goes against na...more

Text box attacks and more in Dragon Quest Heroes

Dragon Quest Heroes is coming to PS3 and PS4. Non-exclusive property as it is--in fact, we've seen a lot more Dragon Quests on Nintendo consoles recently--it seems to be the PlayStation console answer to Hyrule Warriors, which Jordan is somehow still playing. I think he's even going to buy an amiibo for it.  more
