PC Port Report: OlliOlli

OlliOlli first showed up earlier this year on the PlayStation Vita, and it flip tricked and grinded its way into the heart of Ian Bonds, who gave it a 9.5/10 and called it a masterpiece "in the sweet spot of 'simple to contro...

Crawl is back with a new release date and an 'IRS MAN' monster

I absolutely loved the way Powerhoof handled its delay of Crawl due to some untimely tax issues that needed to be resolved before the game was released. The studio wasn't sure how long it would take to get back on track, but...

Mighty Tactical Shooter is a rad looking turn-based shmup

Usually when one thinks about shmups, precision motor skill and quick reaction are what come to mind. Mighty Tactical Shooter turns that completely on its head. Though precision movement and shot placement is still required,...

The Deer God funded, now coming to Wii U and Xbox One too

Did you get your pledge in for The Deer God? I didn't, because these days I try to severely limit the number of projects I back on Kickstarter, but damn did it look neat -- visually and conceptually. Crescent Moon Games ende...

Conflicks has a great alternate history setup with anachronistic space colonialism

Did you know that Leonardo da Vinci discovered MetaMatter? Well, not in real life, but in the universe of Conflicks he did. It turns out all it takes is to separate a chicken egg's yolk from its albumen, and to heat up the y...

Review: Sokobond photo
Review: Sokobond
by Darren Nakamura

Chemistry is governed by a definite set of rules. Opposite charges attract, like dissolves like, matter is always conserved. There are more rules than just those, but one of the great things about the study of matter and its interactions is that if one truly understands the rules and laws governing chemicals, he can predict outcomes given a set of preconditions.

In that sense, Sokobond has even more in common with chemistry than it lets on. Though it boasts that no chemistry knowledge is required to play, it too runs on a specific set of rules, and any player who internalizes those rules can find success in-game. As a fortunate side effect, any who spend time connecting atoms in Sokobond might just learn something about chemistry too.

Gods Will Be Watching dials back the torture for a launch trailer

Launching a videogame is usually cause for celebration. However, this Gods Will Be Watching launch trailer is bleak enough that you won't want to celebrate anything, not even the game's impending July 24 release. At lea...

Rhythmic dungeon crawler Crypt of the NecroDancer has been fun to watch at expos, but soon enough we'll be able to play (and fail, likely repeatedly) on our own terms -- the game hits Steam Early Access for Windows, Mac, and...

Push Me Pull You is 2-vs-2 gross sausage monster ball wrestling

Hamza was won over by Push Me Pull You at GDC and I wish I had gotten a chance to try it, too. At least now there's some disturbing video of it in action.  "Connected at the waist, you and your partner must use a s...

Lead the most adorable mob riot with Anarcute

Everybody loves putting on an animal mask and wreaking destruction, right? Anarcute may not be as bloody as Hotline Miami, but it does tap into that same urge. It's that desire to dress up like a demented, googly-eyed Animal...

Play Mount & Blade: Warband for free on Steam this weekend
by Jordan Devore

If you've been on the fence about Mount & Blade: Warband, here's one way to spend your weekend. Now through Sunday at 1:00pm Pacific, the action game and its open-ended multiplayer battles are free to test out thanks to a promo on Steam.

Folks who get hooked -- the top user review for Warband literally has over a thousand hours of play time on record -- can then buy the title to keep for $4.99. That's a savings of 75 percent.

There's something for existing players, too. Steam Workshop support for mods (of which there are many) has been added, and the Mac and Linux ports of Warband are now out of beta.
