Learning to be bad with Blackguards

If you've ever wanted to tear across a fantasy realm with a roving band of criminal misfits, you might be able to live out your dream in Daedalic's tactical role-playing game, Blackguards. You might recall that I wasn't particularly sold on...   read

Review: Legend of Dungeon

I was feeling pretty cocky when I entered the home of a classy vampire and her kitten chum. I had a magical sword, a hat that gave me Flash-like super speed, and more health-giving apples than you could possibly eat in a lifetime. But no am...   read

BetaDwarf to celebrate launch of Forced with a tournament

Forced, BetaDwarf's co-op arena title, might not have PvP, but that doesn't mean that the spirit of competition can't seep into it. To celebrate the game's launch on October 24, the developer is hosting a tournament sponsored by the likes o...   read

BetaDwarf's Forced: From classroom to Steam Early Access

Garages are passé now, it seems. Where once indie game developers would steal precious space from cars, lawnmowers, and bikes, they can now be found living up in a tree or, in the case of Danish developer BetaDwarf, squatting in a cl...   read

The blackguards are revealed

Daedalic's evil RPG Blackguards sounds like a bit of all right, with tactical combat and less than nice protagonists. Now the German developer is finally ready to spill the beans on exactly what's up with these unpleasant folk.  There'...   read

You should really be playing The Showdown Effect

When I reviewed The Showdown Effect back in March, I absolutely loved it. Arrowhead are just great at making silly, fun titles. But within my review was a nagging doubt, the worry that it wouldn't be able to maintain the necessary populatio...   read

New releases: Fun with criminals

Get giddy, chums. It's time to stretch those car jacking limbs because Grand Theft Auto V is upon us. Jim's already devoured it and has given us the low down, but come tomorrow, you'll be enjoying it yourself. It's rare for me to patiently...   read

Review: The Dark Eye: Memoria

I Have No Mouth, but I Must Tell You About This Game

I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream, Harlan Ellison's post-apocalyptic short story, was quite affecting to a young me. While many cite 2001: A Space Odyssey's HAL or Terminator's Skynet as the greatest AI villain, for me it will always be A...   read

Review: Outlast

I'm entirely cut off from the world. Noise-canceling headphones cover my ears, the lights in my room are switched off, and I've thrown a sheet over my curtains so that not one speck of light will appear from the street lights outside. And I...   read

Review: Worms Clan Wars

I think that Team 17 needs some help. Some dastardly villain has clearly locked the developer up and abandoned them, because less than a year after releasing the excellent Worms Revolution, the invertebrate-obsessed studio has only gone and...   read
