Making sense of Atlas Reactor's simultaneous turn-based combat

Atlas Reactor is a tactical multiplayer game about predicting your opponents' moves. The twist is that although combat is turn-based, everyone's "turns" play out simultaneously (albeit across distinct phases: prep, dash, blast, and move). I...   read

Remember Trion’s Rift? I really liked it; it had a lot of excitement behind it before release, and then when it came out people seemed to forget all about it. The jump to free-to-play seemed to help a bit with getting players back, b...   read

Trove, a Minecraft-like MMO, is out today from Trion Worlds

Take a chance on Defiance now that it's going free-to-play

To me, Defiance always looked like one of those games I'd probably enjoy a lot more if I didn't have to pay a monthly fee for it. The show didn't strike me as too great, but I figured I'd give the game a go if it ever went down in price or ...   read
