Review: Anomaly Warzone Earth (XBLA)

11 bit Studios' Anomaly Warzone Earth was a creative little "tower offense" title, and a big hit on PC and mobile last year. Now it has finally been released on Xbox Live Arcade. Mouse and keyboard controls are out, full game...

Review: Kinect Star Wars

Dutch indie studio Ronimo Games has unveiled the release date for the rather excellent-looking Awesomenauts. The 2D Multiplayer Online Battle Arena title will hit the PlayStation Store in North America on May 1, 2012. On May...

Tactics Ogre is half price on the EU PlayStation Store

One of the reasons why I picked up a PlayStation Vita, other than submitting to gadget lust, was the prospect of catching up on those games I had missed out on by never owning a PSP. Some great titles, like Patapon 2, Half Mi...

Nyan Cat Adventure nyans onto the App Store

Xbox Live Indie title Nyan Cat Adventure is now available for iOS. A free version gives you the basic "Party" mode and the traditional Nyan Cat to play with, while the $0.99 version gives you more Nyans and more modes. I gave it a spin to see what has changed from 21st Street Games' XBLIG version, and to see whether or not it still induces seizures on the smaller screen real estate.

Preview: What to expect from Risen 2's Treasure Isle DLC

"Aaaargh!" is an exclamation often associated with pre-order and "day one" bonus downloadable content. You end up with an extra character, skin, or a weapon or two, often followed by Internet outcry when some of that content ...

Growing up during the dawn of PC strategy games, playing everything from Dune II and Command & Conquer to Panzer General, took its toll on my teenage years. History classes only became worth paying attention to when it co...

Five ways to suck at Wargame: European Escalation

Wargame: European Escalation was released for PC yesterday. After failing at a certain mission and losing momentum, leading to a 1.5-hour mission, I realized there are a couple of ways to play this game if you've played many ...

Mass Effect 3 CG trailer gets an extended cut

We saw a brief Mass Effect 3 CG trailer last weekend, which Jonathan Holmes didn't care for because he hates good videogames. Now we have the full extended cut version with even more dramatic Earthlings who fight for the least interesting planet in the Mass Effect universe! I guess nobody would give a damn if it was the Volus home world that was invaded in a trailer, eh? Two more weeks...

Dream games we'd like to see Kickstarted into reality

Double Fine's attempt at securing funding for an adventure game that everybody seemingly wants has resulted in a massive crowdsourcing success story in less than a day. It sure didn't hurt that you could basically pre-order a...

The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav looks delicious

I'll be honest, Daedalic Entertainment's upcoming adventure game The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav only caught my eye because of the beautiful handdrawn graphics in the screenshots, and the above teaser video. While the video ...
