New releases: Killers everywhere

I'll be spending this week playing catch up, but there's no dearth of new releases. Killer is Dead is tempting me, because bloody hell it looks flashy, but I'll probably leave until I'm not drowning in games. Final Fantasy XIV: A Real...

 
 
Europa Universalis review photo

Review: Europa Universalis IV

I've just united Italy after over a century of bloody conflicts. From Doge of The Serene Republic of Venice to the first King of Italy -- it's quite the step up. Along the way, I've upset the gargantuan Holy Roman Empire, gone to war with t...

 
 
Outlast at PAX photo

Scare yourself stupid with Outlast at PAX

There's nothing I like more than to curl up into a little ball and weep like a wee lassie, and Outlast looks like it's going to give me plenty of opportunities to do so. The pants-wetting survival horror title is due out on September 4, but...

 
 
Precinct Interview photo

Police Interrogation: Getting the skinny on Precinct

It's 1987. Politicians are terrifying people with Cold War rhetoric, The Simpsons is born on The Tracy Ullman Show, U2 releases The Joshua Tree, and Bono has yet to become completely intolerable. I'm two years old, and I'm too bus...

New releases: Purple is back in style

Bloody hell, this week, calm down. A slew of games are clamouring for your attention over the next seven days, some of them really rather good. At the top of the pile, however, is Saints Row IV. I didn't think the series would ever reach t...

 
 
Spelunky PC Port photo

PC Port Report: Spelunky

[Want to know how a developer handled the PC version of a multiplatform game? Check out the PC Port Report for the full scoop.] The original Spelunky, now known as Spelunky Classic, was a freeware PC title, but it was XBLA players that got ...

 
 
Dragon Age Inquisition photo

Dragon Age: Inquisition caters to all races

Am I still going to be derided for admitting that I rather liked Dragon Age II's Hawke? The focus on a human character was more in line with the second outing in Thedas' narrower vision, and I found that I wasn't all that fussed about not b...

 
 
Brigmore Witches review photo

Review: Dishonored: The Brigmore Witches

I'm meant to be playing a cold, calculating murderer -- a man who assassinated an empress and gave her innocent daughter to traitors. So why am I hiding atop a broken chandelier, a mess of tightly wound nerves and sweat? Because I pissed of...

New releases: Get your dragon on, and then do it again

Apparently it's shark week in the US, but more importantly, it's also dragon week. Dragon's Crown and Dragon Commander -- two extremely different scaley games -- are dropping, and fans of winged reptiles are likely rejoicing. Chris is a bi...

 
 
Wargame DLC photo

Wargame: AirLand Battle gets some hefty, free DLC

I was thoroughly impressed with Eugen Systems' Wargame: AirLand Battle; an extremely complex, realistic take on modern warfare. It's one of the most impressive RTS titles to come out in the last couple of years, and one that was full of con...

 
 
Saints Row IV Australia photo

Australians rejoice: You're allowed to play Saints Row IV

After a ridiculous amount of faffing about, Saints Row IV has finally been deemed appropriate for adults to buy. Until now, Australian men and women were considered responsible enough to get jobs, buy homes, and get married, but not respons...

 
 
Whore of the Orient photo

First footage of Team Bondi's Whore of the Orient appears

Leaked footage of Team Bondi's Whore of the Orient recently surfaced on VideoGamer.com, courtesy of a "trusted source." The gameplay video reveals some awkward fighting, some brisk running, and a lot of hiding behind boxes.  Whor...

 
 
Square Enix news photo

Square Enix not giving up on AAA PC and console games

Square Enix has been a bit of a Negative Nancy this year, specifically when it's come to sales. Although it shifted quite a few copies of Sleeping Dogs, Hitman Absolution, and Tomb Raider, as well as garnering quite a bit of critical succes...

 
 
Europa Universalis IV photo

Crusader Kings collides with Europa Universalis

Europa Universalis IV, one of my most anticipated releases of the year, is only a fortnight away. As we enter August, the final pre-order bonus has been revealed by Paradox Interactive, and it's a doozy: a free copy of Crusader Kings II and...

 
 
Shadowrun review photo

Review: Shadowrun Returns

High fantasy, cyberpunk, and film noir collide in a way that makes you think they were meant for each other all along in Harebrained Schemes' appropriately, if not imaginatively, titled Shadowrun Returns. Based on the popular tabletop role-...

 
 
GOG interview photo

GOG: Indies, nostalgia, and the evils of DRM

It took a long time for me to be comfortable with digital distribution. I held onto my dusty boxes and physical media with grim determination, seeing no reason for me to move with the times. It was Space Quest that changed all that. I'd los...

New releases: Force adorable Pikmin to kill, you monster

We're bidding farewell to an extremely hot July with a bang: Pikmin 3 is here, or it will be come Sunday. Of course, if you have the good fortune to be living in the UK or other, less important parts of Europe, then this is old news and yo...

 
 
WoW subscriptions photo

Cue mass hysteria: WoW loses 600,000 subscribers

I can't help but chuckle when Activision Blizzard releases subscription figures for World of Warcraft, because even when there are significant losses, the number of continuing subscribers remains astronomical. By the end of June, the gargan...

 
 
Face Noir review photo

Review: Face Noir

I was on my second whisky when she walked into my office. With legs that went up to her neck, and ruby-red lips that were completely out of sync with her voice, I knew she'd be trouble. She wanted me to review her, and I was just about drun...

New releases: You had me at isometric cyberpunk fantasy

New releases is a day late this week, as my ISP got so excited by all of these games coming out that they decided to screw with my connection. Well, that's what I pay them for. This week's actually a bit quiet, with only a couple of stando...

Firefall beta: Post-apocalyptic pina coladas

Red5's sci-fi MMO Firefall has been in beta for a very long time, recently hitting that open-beta milestone. So long, in fact, that when I started playing the closed beta in earnest last month, it had transformed into an entirely different ...

 
 
Precinct Kickstarter photo

Police Quest makes a comeback in the form of Precinct

When I was scouring adventure game titan Sierra On-line's back catalog in the '90s, one title stood out from its generally light-hearted peers and demanded that I play it immediately: a game where instead of playing a space janitor or a des...

 
 
Dragon Commander preview photo

A day in the life of a jetpack-wearing dragon monarch

Does slapping a jetpack onto a dragon sound ridiculous to you? Are you incredulous at such a prospect? You shouldn't be. How the hell does such a beast fly without mechanical assistance? Dragons are big, buff enough to make one wonder if th...

New releases: Demon slavery is back in style

It's Monday and I almost forgot. Here was me assuming it was still the weekend, but no, the new week has began and we've got a bunch of new releases to look forward to, or not. Shin Megami Tensei IV is the stand out new release this week, ...

New releases: Civilization V gets a massive expansion

Civilization V is pretty good, but Brave New World makes it wonderful. Launching in a couple of days, the latest expansion is filled with a bevy of new features, most of which improve the tiresome late game with new paths to victory and gr...
