Black Mesa's Xen chapter gets delayed yet again

Review: Black Mesa

Half-Life is a great game, but it's been over ten years since its release. What if Half-Life were made in 2007 instead of 1999? Black Mesa is a re-imaging of Half-Life using Source, the engine powering Half-Life 2. Valve has alrea...

Time to bash some headcrabs: Black Mesa is now available

Black Mesa, the long awaited and long delayed Half-Life fan remake done in the Source engine is now freely available on the developer's website. Don't worry, I checked and it's not a link to a Rick Astley video. I can't believe it either. T...

Path of Fire sure takes a lot of Metroidvania conventions to the way you progress through Elona, theres bunch of closed off areas until you get the proper mount to traverse it, be it by jumping over a chasm, steep cliffs or literal walled off

Double Monocles

I tried R6 Sieges outbreak Its a pretty good concept, but limited as Id play a game built around it, with more variety in weapons, maps, and enemies, and the ability to have people join your game after one guy DCs half way through


Welp, I gave Eureka a solid week in FF Its Gimme back the old relic At least then I could multitask and level up other classes or get tomestones/savage clears in while working on Eurekas just a waste of time with shit gear


Question: is there any good games out there that mix roguelike/lite elements with JRPG? Was thinking about how could it would be a game with a Chrono Trigger-like battle system (fast, lots of fun, no need to grind) with randomized dungeons and
