Barf a clone into existence in Styx: Master of Shadows

"Don't be stupid. Goblins don't exist. You don't even know what one looks like." With Styx: Master of Shadows being a stealth game in which you play as a goblin -- the first of all goblins, at that -- yeah, I suppose the guy...

Review: Impire photo
Review: Impire
by Fraser Brown

There is a vast, tumultuous ocean between good ideas and their actual application, and lost in the middle of that ocean is Impire. In fact, it may very well be stuck inside the belly of a whale.

I had high hopes for the dungeon-crafting premise, the cheeky imps, and the absurd humor. In hindsight this may have been thanks to my desire to see the evolutionary dead end that was Dungeon Keeper revitalized by Cyanide's attempt to rekindle this subterranean not-quite-sub-genre of management games. 

It started off strong, too, with jokes a plenty, a penchant for violence and torture, and a veritable army of hideous monstrosities just waiting to be conjured. But somewhere down the line, it lost its way and became something that, honestly, I couldn't wait to put down.

Review: Of Orcs and Men
by Jim Sterling

A name can say a lot about a piece of art, with the particularly poetic ones giving you a clue as to where a project may be coming from. You can certainly get a good idea of the differences between The Unfinished Swan and Battlefield, based simply on the title. 

Of Orcs and Men is one such game where a name says so much. It's a fantasy game, that much is obvious. Its literary allusion points toward strong focus on narrative. The cultured tone of the moniker suggests a developer with something to say, something worth hearing. 

For a game that uses the word "F*ck" roughly once every other line of dialog, it's surprising just how fitting the name is.
