Review: Emily is Away Too

Emily is Away wasn’t the first visual novel I had ever played, but one of the few to transport me into a period of my life I thought I left behind. Maybe that was due more to the accurate recreation of Windows XP and AOL Instant Messe...

Darkest Dungeon's Crimson Court expansion is out June 19

Darkest Dungeon. Crimson Court. Gosh I love that short, sweet alliteration. The Crimson Court is the first expansion for Red Hook Studios' "absolutely merciless" roguelike dungeon-crawling RPG, and it's nearly ready for Windows, Mac, and Li...

SmuggleCraft is an ambitious racer, but needs some tweaking

I'm a huge fan of racing games. I'm terrible at them, but I've always loved driving around at high speeds with my friends. Throw hovercraft into the mix and I'm sold from day one. Games like F-Zero, Diddy Kong Racing (I know they were water...
