Epic is opening up Paragon's beta on August 16

I'm not necessarily looking for another MOBA, but Paragon has made the rounds among enough friends who have had decent things to say about it (even Steven!) that I'll have to give it a look eventually. The game hits open beta for PC and Pla...   read

Review: Shadow Complex Remastered

Fans of Shadow Complex have desperately wanted a follow-up for years. I know, because I was (and still am!) among them. The 2009 side-scrolling adventure was a genuine hit on Xbox 360, deservedly so, and ended up becoming one of the definin...   read
