Costume Quest 2 photo

Review: Costume Quest 2

The original Costume Quest was a seminal game for Double Fine; it was the first game to come out of Amnesia Fortnight, a two-week period of experimenting with small-scale games. Costume Quest's success led the way for Stacking, Iron Brigade...

LA Cops brings mustaches and doughnuts to tactical shooters

Bringing a game that's early in development to a show like EGX is both a good idea and a scary one. You can get plenty of helpful feedback and some comments that aren't so helpful. "Yeah, we had this kid who was like eight years old tell us...

Review: The Vanishing of Ethan Carter

Perhaps the biggest surprise about The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is that the developers behind the game were members of People Can Fly, the studio responsible for Bulletstorm; the idea that some of the people who came up with the over-the-t...

 
 
Human Orbit photo

Human Orbit will let you indulge your rogue AI fantasies

Is it me or are all artificial intelligences on spacecraft always evil? GLaDOS, HAL, SHODAN, the ... steering wheel thingy from WALL-E -- all of them were pretty evil, or at least fairly negligent in their jobs and now it's your turn to joi...

 
 
Calvino Noir photo

Calvino Noir is a European, smoky, noir-ish stealth game

I think I've probably made it clear that I like a good stealth game and thankfully I had the chance to try out the lovely-looking Calvino Noir at EGX. Set in post-war Austria (I forgot to ask which war... whoops), players control Wilt, a de...

Monsterum photo

I had a good time watching Monsterum scare people

I talked yesterday about how horror games are difficult to demo at a convention; you need to block out so much noise and activity around you to be really immersed in what you're playing. Team Junkfish had no such problems as their upcoming...

 
 
War for the Overworld photo

War for the Overworld is the Dungeon Keeper sequel you wanted

When the recent Dungeon Keeper mobile game was released by EA, it went down like a barrel of stinking fish; it took the core concepts of the franchise and saddled them with a freemium model that made it a chore to play. Thankfully, UK stud...

 
 
Heat Signature photo

Heat Signature is already looking hot

Heat Signature was one of the games I most wanted to get my hands on at EGX. Designer Tom Francis was the guy behind Gunpoint, one of my favorites of 2013, and this next title similarly allows a great deal of player expression and freedom. ...

 
 
 
Poncho photo

Robot platformer Poncho is worth backing

Whenever I've posted an article about a videogame Kickstarter, I've tried to lean on the side of titles that have either a demo as that helps ease some of the potential doubts you can have while backing a project. The team behind Poncho mad...

 
 
Wasteland 2 review photo

Review: Wasteland 2

[Disclosure: I backed the Wasteland 2 Kickstarter and as such received an Early Access copy of the game.] Wasteland 2 is one of the projects that saw success in the wake of Double Fine's Broken Age. Just a month after Tim Schafer's adventur...

 
 
 
 
PC games photo

Half of PC gamers will wait for a sale before buying games

If there's one phrase you get used to hearing when talking about PC games, it's "I'll wait for a bundle or sale." It's common knowledge if you wait a while, you can get a better price through places like Steam, Green Man Gaming, or various ...

Humble Store celebrates the end of summer with a sale

Summer? I think I must've slept through it... oh wait, I was watching the World Cup. Oh well, there's always next year and until then The Humble Store is settling me in for autumn and winter by having daily deals on some great PC games. The...

Review: Hatoful Boyfriend

Moving to a new school always sucks. You need worry to about grades, pick classes, join a club, try to find new friends, and fit into an existing social hierarchy.  Imagine that but with the added confusion of all your schoolmates bein...

 
 
 
 
 
 
A Fistful of Gun photo

A Fistful of Gun is a chaotic, top-down, Western shooter

I appreciate how a publisher like Devolver Digital can put out games as different as Hotline Miami 2 and Hatoful Boyfriend within a few months, as well as this neat top-down shooter A Fistful of Gun. The game looks like a colorful, hec...
