Fire watch with me: Firewatch gets first, mysterious trailer photo
Fire watch with me: Firewatch gets first, mysterious trailer
by Steven Hansen

I am into this. It's a bit inscrutable, sure, but a mystery game needs to be mysterious. I was into Firewatch as soon as I heard of the talent involved. Artist Olly Moss, whose work we enjoy regularly, along with Mark of the Ninja designer Nels Anderson, and season one The Walking Dead writers and designers Sean Vanaman and Jake Rodkin. 

You are alone in the Wyoming wilderness, save for the voice on the other side of your radio. And clearly there's some impropriety going on between Henry and his supervisor Delilah. Also, stuff spookier still. 

There are a few more screenshots on Campo Santo's Firewatch website. The game is aiming for a 2015 PC, Mac, and Linux release. I'm pretty okay going in knowing not much more than we do now.

You've got 4 days to buy 35 games from GOG.com before they're gone

One of the assumptions of buying games digitally is that you assume they'll always be available. That's sadly not the case, but GOG.com is offering discounts on 35 games that it will be removing from its catalog on Septe...

Super Meat Boy Forever is a runner, Mew-Genics on hold

[Update: Edmund McMillen wrote a blog post to explain that Super Meat Boy Forever uses auto run, but is not an endless runner. So it's more like Bit.Trip Runner than anything. Though there is an endless mode with da...

Obsessive-compulsive about your PC game library? There's a web app for that

While I tease about the tediousness of organizing and displaying my ever-expanding Steam Library, the underlying idea here is a pretty good one. Darkadia is a games database that gives you all the tools you need to manage, or...

Now I know why Devolver picked up A Fistful of Gun photo
Now I know why Devolver picked up A Fistful of Gun
by Brett Makedonski

It takes a certain kind of appeal for Devolver Digital to add a title to its stable of games. While the indie-friendly publisher doesn't necessarily have an underlying style that unite all of its games, there is a common theme. They're all uniquely awesome in some way. A Fistful of Gun is the newcomer to Devolver, but it falls right in line as one might expect.

A Fistful of Gun is a top-down western arcade shooter that's all about execution, but maybe moreso about how you'll arrive at that execution. In predictable fashion, there are a bunch of bad guys on the screen, and you're tasked with shooting all of them. One hit kills them, one hit kills you. Where this game thrives is in the choice that it gives the player.

Dying Light has a sweet slide move

So I still need to actually play Vanquish in full, but that rocket knee slide? Good stuff. Dying Light's slide is not so cool, but with enough forward momentum, you could get a decent slide going.  I am only still ...
