The Crew seeks to redefine online racing photo
The Crew seeks to redefine online racing
by Alessandro Fillari

Making its debut at E3 2013, The Crew is Ubisoft's attempt to create a new and fast-paced racer for the next-gen consoles. Although the publisher has definitely got some stiff competition from other racing titles, what separates it from the rest is its ambitious take on open-world racing with competitive and cooperative gameplay.

While it's currently making the rounds at gamescom, Ubisoft allowed us to take the game for a spin at its San Francisco office. Developed by Ivory Tower, The Crew intends on giving racing fans a nation-sized playground to explore and test their prized vehicles against other players in style.

Playing Skyrim, Darksiders and The Crysis on a Razer Edge
by Jim Sterling

Your old buddy Jim Sterling has borrowed a Razer Edge with which to do all sorts of videogame things. You can watch me have a bit of a play on Skyrim, Crysis, Castle Crashers, and Darksiders II if you want. I try to make it interesting. A bit.

A more thorough write-up on the Edge will be coming in the future, but for now, watch me do playing about for a bit or something. If you want. You don't really have to.

Review: Fester Mudd: Curse of the Gold - Episode One photo
Review: Fester Mudd: Curse of the Gold - Episode One
by Fraser Brown

Fester Mudd: Curse of the Gold completely passed me by when it launched in March. It was originally slated for release last year, and I'd been keeping an eye on it for a very good reason: It's a collaboration between Finnish developer Prank Entertainment and Josh Mandel, who, along with Al Lowe, created the classic point and click adventure game, Freddy Pharkas: Frontier Pharmacist. 

When I found out that it had actually launched, completely unbeknownst to me, it demanded a review. This rather late review is in keeping with the game itself. Fester Mudd opens with "This game is a tribute to the golden age of adventure games", but it's more than a tribute -- it belongs in that era. This is its greatest strength and its greatest weakness.

Review: Leviathan: Warships photo
Review: Leviathan: Warships
by Fraser Brown

Throughout the many competitive multiplayer matches of Leviathan: Warships I've played, I've shown a great deal of restraint. No matter how many vessels I lost, I refused to utter the words of defeat that so many have spoken during games of Battleships. I refused to give my foes the satisfaction of hearing me miserably say "You sunk my battleship." And the scenario in which such a phrase would be important happened with great frequency. 

Leviathan is a tad more strategic than the classic board game. I say a tad, but I really mean a lot. It's an asynchronous multiplayer naval strategy title with hints of both Frozen Synapse and, surprisingly, Gratuitous Space Battles. I've grown rather fond of it, I must confess, as it strangely merges the pick-up-and-play gameplay of popular mobile games with the deep strategy of certain PC titles. I also once lost a ship to a Kraken, and that's just quite cool.

Leviathan: Warships release trailer keeps it smooth

I'll admit, I had expected that the novelty would have worn off from the last smooth jazz trailer for the naval warfare strategy game Leviathan: Warships. Still, I started watching the above video and halfway through was chu...
