Q-Games launches a new PS3 music visualizer

I love everything that Q-Games makes, even if they aren't really games sometimes. These are musical people, and as one myself I always connect to what they do.  While musical visualizers might not normally be exciting enough to write ...

PixelJunk Monsters headed to Steam with online co-op

Even though I'd rather get my hands on PixelJunk Inc. than double dip on yet another Q-Games title, PixelJunk Monsters Ultimate is tempting. It's coming to Steam on August 26, 2013 with local and online cooperative play, gamepad support, an...

PixelJunk Inc. is a game about soup and friendship

In case you aren't aware, PixelJunk Inc. looks to be the raddest game ever. Imagine Castlevania, Metal Slug, Pikmin, and a tower defense all rolled into one. Also, soup everywhere. Naturally, when I got the opportunity to talk to the minds...

Review: PixelJunk Eden (PC)
