Dreadnought's huge spaceships are a fairly untapped idea, but still feel familiar photo
Dreadnought's huge spaceships are a fairly untapped idea, but still feel familiar
by Darren Nakamura

The reveal trailer for Dreadnought pushes a lot of the right buttons for science fiction fans. It puts potential players into the right frame of mind and really sets up the scale of the endeavor. Combatants will not be darting around in fighters, they will be commanding huge, lumbering vessels that scoff at smaller ships. "Probably just debris, sir."

Despite the inherent coolness of taking control of a ship on the scale of a Battlestar, it is not something that comes up too often in games. In practice, it makes sense: the speed and control afforded by a smaller vessel is exciting, and that alone does not translate to huge ships. However, with its focus on tactical combat, Dreadnought makes it work, and it does so while remaining accessible to new players. Even though it treads less traveled ground in its subject matter, it features classes and tactics that will feel familiar to most gamers.

Acaratus brings robots onto the tactical RPG battlefield

There is something about turn-based battles on a square grid that always seems to captivate me. Taking that idea out of the generic fantasy setting garners bonus points for me too. Granted, Acaratus is described to take plac...

Lakeview Cabin Collection channels cheesy horror movies

There is something charming about bad horror movies. From the overused tropes to the laughable gore effects, they are hard to take seriously. Lakeview Cabin seems to get that, and is celebrating the stupidity with its episod...

Float and sputter: Halo assets coming to Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition

Previously, we have seen Skyrim and Marvel come to Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition, but the flagship Xbox franchise Halo has been suspiciously absent. You don't think Microsoft would pass up on an opportunity to marry two of its...

Bullet hell Zenzizenzic takes to Kickstarter for the final stretch

Zenzizenzic may have a ridiculous name, but it has a genuinely interesting story behind its development. Ruud Koorevaar would not have been called a game developer when he began work on the twin-stick bullet hell shooter; he...

Make like the Goo and absorb these Grey Goo screens

One of the major aspects of Grey Goo that's likely to set it apart from other real-time strategy games is the inclusion of the titular Goo -- a race of nanites that can form into and break off from an amorphous blob. Whe...

Fossil Echo flattens Shadow of the Colossus down to 2D

Shadow of the Colossus is one of the greatest games of all time, so citing it as a major influence brings a double meaning to "standing on the shoulders of giants." Adding Oddworld as another influence makes me very interest...

Worms Battlegrounds to bring annelid anarchy to PS4 and Xbox One on June 3

Since what feels like the dawn of time (or at least shortly after Scorched Earth existed), Worms has been a mainstay of videogames in general. With its odd humor and ridiculous arsenal, it has graced over 25 platforms with i...

As it turns out, pigs are a lot smarter than we typically give them credit for. That could be the inspiration behind the open-world puzzle platformer Full Bore, which stars a digging boar as it journeys through ancient ruins...

New screens to tease next episode of The Walking Dead

Telltale Games has released a few screenshots for The Walking Dead's next installment, In Harm's Way. Clementine and the other survivors from the cabin have gotten themselves into a bit of a pickle, it would seem. We still don't have a release date for In Harm's Way, but Telltale assures that it's coming in the very near future.
