Review: King's Quest: Once Upon a Climb

Despite its lengthy release schedule (the first episode dropped last July!), King's Quest has wormed its way into my heart. Sure, the second chapter was a slight drop-off from the first, but it still managed to maintain the pace and most im...

Nintendo has confirmed that the NX, its newest console we know virtually nothing about, is to be released globally in March 2017. The company also confirmed The Legend of Zelda title previously announced for Wii U has been de...

Headlander feels like a licensed game for a cartoon that doesn't exist

Headlander looks fantastic. It feels like a space-themed spin-off of a primetime '70s sitcom; think Partridge Family 2200 A.D by way of Highlander. To some of you, that comparison may come across as a slight, so what you also need to unders...

Review: Koi

"Made in China" is a phrase typically etched into the underside of cheap consumer goods. Hidden from view, it's more of an admission than a selling point. It's a reminder of the grim realities of our globalized economy, a statement of discl...

Review: Severed

When Drinkbox Studios' Guacamelee! came out three years ago (blarg), Jonathan Holmes called it a "sugar skull-covered playground to delight in and devour with mucho gusto," and I'd agree with that assessment. Vibrant colors, a won...

Ghost Song blew away my expectations, made me die a lot

I have to be honest, I've been a skeptic of Ghost Song since it was announced and then crowdfunded. People around the internet have reacted as if it weas God's gift to gamers and the second coming of Samus, and I just thought it l...

Review: The Walking Dead: Michonne: What We Deserve

To say that Telltale's The Walking Dead: Michonne has been uneven would be an understatement. Although the lead performance was enough to draw me in the first time, the second episode dragged, and struggled to introduce any compelling ...

Review: Alienation

Going into Alienation, I expected two things. First and foremost, I knew I was in for some frenetic arcade-style action. This is a twin-stick shooter from Housemarque, the studio behind Super Stardust HD and Resogun, so that's a given. I al...

Katana Zero provides a satisfying challenge for masochistic players

Solo developer Askiisoft is no stranger to creating challenging games. Tower of Heaven and Pause Ahead both gave me a run for my money (even as freeware), and the upcoming action title Katana Zero is no exception. The gameplay is perha...

Screaming and vertigo is fun! Watch us play Japan's cat rescue game

Atlas Reactor is shaping up to be something great

We’re drowning in a sea of MOBAs. Dota 2, League of Legends, Heroes of the Storm, Smite, the list goes on and on and on. So it’s really nice to see Trion, developer of Rift and Trove, try something slightly different with their ...
